"Max" was a dog but the Restaurant is anything but...

Enjoyed a wonderful "Early Bird" 50% discounted meal which we enjoyed very much. I especially enjoyed my Barramundi, cooked to perfection. My friends enjoyed the Fish and Chips, Eye Beef Fillet and Eastern Grill. The four of us agreed the meals were wonderful, Our attending staff bright, happy... read more

We always make the time to go to Max's whenever we are at the Gold Coast. We are never disappointed. It's one of the only restaurants anywhere that serves whole Sole. It is always cooked to perfection. Plain, simple and delicious.

Hubby and I had a short sray in broadbeach, chose this one for dinner, it was absolutely great meal. Staff very attentive and efficient. We had the best garlic bread ever, beautiful Italian bread, loved it. Ordered mixed grill as main, very delicious. Great location and great price, will go back for sure.

When we we stay at Broadbeach we always eat here when we dine out by our selves or with friends. Great steak dishes at good prices. Good atmosphere. We especially enjoyed dining here recently during a rain deluge and thunderstorm. The staff dropped the blinds down and it was a great dining experience.

This place is run like a chinese takeaway. Found Max in the middle of Broadbeach at $10 Lunch, felt excited. Arrived the drinks, two of them were undrinkable. Being a hospitality worker, I dislike being the person to return anything. But those drinks tasted foul and truly would prefer to have something else. And the garlic bread was greasy and... More

My dear young reviewer. You have a lot to learn about hospitality and people. A long way in your case. Without prejudice you're claiming that my establishment is like a Chinese take away. How dare you when you are an Asian descent. I never ever discriminated in my life as all my staff are of all backgrounds. Your first review... More

We were there during the low season for tourists so they have a special menu with lowered prices. The service was prompt and the staff friendly. The food was not bad. They have a dish called 'hot pot', which offers seafood in a hot pot, with creamy sauces. I think this is quite special for western cuisine.

The $10 lunch specials are good value. The staff are well presented, and helpful. I went to pay my $14 bill with my card, and this is where it all turned 'pear-shaped'. I was informed by the owner of the $25 minimum. The cost of a credit card transaction to him would have been 28 cents, So I offered to... More

I found your review amusing and not worth my time responding but I felt compelled to do so because of your misleading details which you stated. This review and rating have no bearing on the food or beverage or service provided which you personally praised anyway. It's sad to see people like you using these websites in wasting everyone's time... More
