“Great food and incredible service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

My son and I ate here while on vacation in Indianapolis. The food was delicious - from the yummy soup that we started with, to each of our entrees, all the way until we had our desserts. My son opted for the cookies, which he totally loved. I chose the banana cream pie, which had all the comforts of home.

Our server, Jonathan, made the meal rise to a whole new level. He was funny, charming, witty, and never once did either of us ever have to ask for a refill, as Jonathan was right on top of things. When asked, he made some recommendations, which turned out to be spot on.

I highly encourage you to go to Max & Ermas for wonderful food and exceptional customer service. Just make sure you are seated in Jonathan's section.

“Reasonable American Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Ate here because it was late and the restaurant was across the parking lot from the Hampton Inn. Food was OK. Service was fair. Waitress must not have been having a very good day. She didn't say much and what she did says wasn't cheerful. It's not a bad place to eat, I just would have wanted something a bit more pleasant.

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We visited the restaurant after a recommendation from the hotel staff. The staff were great to make us feel welcome and the menu was full of great choices. Our waiter recommended we try their world famous hamburgers and we were not disappointed. Just make sure to get a box of fresh cookies to take home with you! We will probably make the drive again just for them!

“Always a good meal & a nice evening to be had at Max & Erma's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We eat at Max & Erma's pretty frequently, as they offer a nice menu with variety of good food. We always have a good meal, from their wings appetizer to their fish & chips meal to their steak fajitas. We have tried them all and they are all delicious! Took my niece there and she had a delicious grilled cheese sandwich with a side of fresh fruit. They offer daily drink specials, as well as a variety of homemade soups. Their french onion soup is always on the menu and quite spectacular. Goes well with their "village" salad. Fresh baked cookies for dessert are delicious and free on Wednesdays. Always a good meal & a nice evening to be had at Max & Erma's!
