Took family out for breakfast and it was great! Had the bacon and eggs, with amazing hash browns, and the river rock bread! They've stepped it up!

Ate breakfast 4 days sampling eggs with meat and pancakes. Food looked good in presentation and tasted very good too. Some days service was slow but always pleasant. Menu a little small but still its breakfast not dinner

Sometimes you don't want to venture out after a hard business day, It is awfully nice to have a good restaurant in your hotel. That doesn't always happen. Good food, good service and varied menu, hits on all main points. Slightly pricey, but not bad.

We only ate at Max's for breakfast the 2 mornings we had in Fernie and we had the Eggs Bennie (both types) both times. With $5 off per person per breakfast (thanks to our staying at the Park Place Lodge) the prices couldn't be beat. Service was excellent. Very friendly and upbeat and not at all intrusive. We didn't have... More

I wished I'd read Snowgriz's review before ordering lunch here this week. Although I've never had a complaint in the past after eating in the Pub, the fireplace room or the restaurant, this time was more misses than hits. The list: 1. The Monte Cristo sandwich had stale (freezer-burn?) flavoured turkey which was dry/tough so I dissected my sandwich to... More

We Sometimes the food has been very good and other times bordering on terrible. Stick with the pub style food like wings and the meal should be good. Service is usually very good as long as the place isn't packed.
