“Nice restaurant with large portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Our daughter works near this restaurant so my wife and I visited her and ended up at Max's for lunch. The menu was typical American but it had a lot of choices and a few items of distinction.

I had the grilled cheese sandwich with three cheeses and tomato. It was excellent. The fries were good.

My wife and daughter had salads - they were large and excellent.

Service was prompt. The beer selection was small but good - you can get several on tap.

This restaurant is in an office area with a number of other restaurants nearby - both sit down and take out. It's a good area to find something that suits your taste.
