Steak House

While it's a typical steak house, they have much more. The wait staff are excellent. They really make it a dining experience rather than just a meal. Great for a fancy night out, but you don't need to dress up. Only nice casual clothes. Or go ahead an dress up.

I have been going to Max's Tavern for 10 years now and I have never been disappointed. The service has always been top notch and friendly. The menu doesn't change often, but then neither does the quality...it's outstanding. Great specials while seated in the bar area. Many times I create my own entree. Try the buffalo shrimp on a Caesar... More

Stopped for a late lunch after touring the basketball hall of fame. Had some burgers a chicken sandwich and a Caesar salad. The burgers were ok. The jerk chicken sandwich was a small piece of chicken tucked in a large bun. Meager Fixins on the sandwich. The ceased salad came out with goopy thick dressing and no Parmesan cheese. When... More

Friendly service and great attitude. We were a business group of 7, and they got us in quickly. Wait staff were great and water glasses were constantly filled. Food was outstanding, and the filet was in line with Morton's or the Chop House.

Service was good, food was great and the wine was even better! If a holiday weekend, definitely make a reservation. A popular place for sure!

Had to make a family trip to Springfield for the weekend. Found Max's through tripadvisor. Very pleased with the meal and the ambience. Started with an appetizer special -- tempura shrimp -- wonderful! My wife had the Filet Oscar and I had the grilled Monk Fish. Both were excellent! Perfectly cooked, and the sweet potato fries were the best I've... More

I have to be honest, my husband, family members, friends, and i frequent Max's Tavern........because we love this place. It has been a brutal winter in this part of the country, so last night we decided to venture out for some comfort food at Max's. The French onion soup was to die for as was the baked macaroni filled with... More

This was my first time here and it won't be my last. I was very impressed with the service, which was top notch. I wound up ordering one of the specials for lunch which is something I typically don't do, but it just sounded too good to pass up. I also never get dessert, but I did this time, and... More

Had high expectations as I had heard many good reviews, but we were very disappointed with the cod dinner we ordered. The fish was not fresh and was overcooked and over seasoned. My sister had ordered the same dish on two earlier occasions and loved it, so she ordered it again and was also disappointed. The service and atmosphere were... More

The crab cakes and the steaks were fantastic. The service was excellent. We ate in the private room in the back, and were well tended to.
