Max's has a great menu of steak and seafood. Everyone in my party enjoyed their dishes. They even had a decent selection of microbrews on tap. Service was excellent; the waiter was very attentive and made great recommendations on food and wine. Max's has a slightly more causal atmosphere than an upscale steakhouse, which was comfortable and relaxing.

Went on a spur of the moment. Food was excellent... terrific mussels, calamari. Very nice dinners. Prices are a bit steep and the service was OK but not great. Would rate 5 star if these two things were better.

Had Christmas Eve dinner here and were absolutely own away- some of the best food we have had in ages and we come from Provincetown where there are many excellent restaurants. We will definitely be returning here whenever in the area. Chicken dish on the menu was by far the best chicken I've ever eaten.

My friend had the sirloin and I had the Chatham cod. Both dishes were perfect. We especially enjoyed our desserts - which we weren't going to order until we saw the menu. The Apple cider donuts were made fresh and served warm with a salty caramel sauce. These were to die for! The pumpkin bread pudding was delicious too. The... More

Attended a business dinner with a party of 16. There were 2-4 people servicing our table at any given time so the service was outstanding. We had a variety of apps and entree's and everyone commented positively on the meals.

Our son was home for Thanksgiving and we wanted to go out together before he returned home. He went on Open Table and was interested in Max's. We have been there numerous times and were never thrilled, until this past April, when our meal was delicious. So, long story short, he made an early reservation tonight because he had Bruin's...

I like going here from time-to-time, but a lot of their food doesn't quite hit the upscale experience they're trying to imitate. It seems like they're trying to be something they are not and really could drop their prices a bit. Great atmosphere, though, and the food is tasty even if overpriced.
