Stopped in for lunch with my son on a weekday. It was pretty quiet when we arrived and ordered our food, which came quickly. While we were enjoying our lovely meal, the place filled up quite a bit, and it became quite difficult to get the one waitress's attention. When we were ready to go it took awhile to pay... More

way overpriced, $30 for a small plate of lamb that was bland as anything. I also ordered 7up and it was terrible!! I think they just gave me carbonated water with a teaspoon of sugar! also they never asked if i wanted a refill at all, not that I wanted one

My wife had been here for lunch and texted me right away recommending a visit. I had the tomato and Italian sausage soup plus a piece of cheese breed which hit the spot. I paired it with a fine beer to further enhance the meal while sitting outside on the patio.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Max and Irma's. We went there with a hankering for some pizza and I think theirs may have been some of the best I've ever had.

We visited with family and the service was amazing. We just happen upon this location for dinner and we were not only pleased by the top notch service but the food was great. We had dinner on a Friday evening and there was a one man band playing some excellent low volume music...kind of jazzy. We ate inside however there... More

It's been a few years since I visited Max & Irma's. It was one of my "must go" places in Nelson. From what I remember ( the place may have changed hands and have a different menu), they offered good home cooked meals at very affordable prices.
