Have been to this place several times and always liked the good service and the excellent food. My wife and I ate here last night, one of the few cafe/restaurants open in the area. Again the service was really good and the food we ordered was really good.

Every time I go past this place it is busy, so decided to try dinner. We ordered a veal scaloppine, which was bland, and chicken parmigiana, which had no ham. The chips were the highlight of the meal. While the service was very well done by the guys, the food is not worth the price.

Max's has been in Essendon North for so long I don't know anyone who hasn't been there. Over the past few years however they have improved it tremendously. Good menu selections, improved outdoor dining protection, good heating in winter, etc etc. For either a snack or a full on dinner they have got it all together. And it is licensed... More

It's a shame I didn't get to eat here. When i arrived I was told they weren't taking any food orders for 30 mins because the kitchen wasn't coping with all the orders. Hmmmm nit good for business and I won't be going back either.

Nothing good or bad to say about this restaurant. We ordered a pizza and tortellaci. They were both fine but certainly nothing to rave about. The service was friendly.

Relaxed dining at Max's with indoor or outdoor seating, late breakfast or lunch specials with a varied menu and kids menu provided also. Service is good and the laid back vibe is great on a weekend to unwind

I had a casual lunch with work colleagues and Max's was good. It had a combination of workers, mums and retirees eating there and accommodated all; that is that it's large enough to select a suitable table. The selection of food was broad enough to satisfy any need. We each enjoyed our choices. The service was very good and friendly.... More
