Stopped by chance, liked the awning. Inside the service was very good, yummy pizza's, nice ambiance with live music, not overpowering in the small space. Would definitely go here again.

Daily specials plus a good assortment on the menu of flavourful dishes to accommodate any pallet. Generally get there before noon or reserve as they are indeed busy. Fast and efficient service and nice food servers. Some spirits are available to those who desire.

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.
