“Can't go wrong here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Happy hour appearance today in the bar - have been here several times before for dinner. Had clam chowder (cup) (for 2.00, a great deal), which was delicious, and crab meat sliders and seared scallops which were also quite good. Chardonnay was 5.00/glass. Service was prompt, and attentive. Also decided to order dessert and irish coffee; overall great experience - Recommend. Waitress indicated that Saturday is good day for Happy Hour, - not too crowded, which was the day we were there.

“Rude manager & mediocre food not for us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Max Fish used to be one of our favorites but due to no changes to menu and rude management, we won't be returning. Most recently met some friends in bar & had a drink with them before getting seated. When we ordered a bottle of wine for the table the manager came over and was concerned we might be "over served" and was reluctant to give us the wine. Apparently there was confusion about martinis (which we did not drink)...once we clarified situation, he allowed waitress to bring our wine. Overall it was embarrassing and no real concern from manager. He could have turned it around but chose not to.

Fortunately there are plenty of EXCELLENT restaurants in Glastonbury to enjoy, as well as the other MAX alternatives to Max Fish.

“Love the mussels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Lobster rolls, mussels and all types of seafood as well as a few meat dishes. A little more formal than Max Amore but good for a change. We enjoy lunch here quite often.

“Raw Bar is fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I love sitting at the raw bar, where you can order anything but their small bites are especially fun. You can watch the oysters being opened, the towers being prepared, it is a lot of fun. The food is always excellent, no matter where you sit.

“Fresh Fish and Great Desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you want to best and freshest in fish, go no farther than Max Fish in Glastonbury. From their infamous raw bar to classic entrees, Max is special. There are other dishes available but fish IS their specialty. AND after a great main dish, top it off with some of the most delicious desserts offered. Great staff as well
