I had an outstanding BLT. I'm still thinking about it. It was huge, the tomato slices were giant heirloom tomatoes, perfectly ripe., bacon was fabulous and sourdough bread was excellent! My tablemate had a large omelet , and other tablemate had a kale peach salad, both portions were large !!

Max's is friendly and responsive. I only had breakfast there. I could order from a menu or the breakfast buffet. There was a good selection of food. Separate containers for fruit let you design your own fruit bowl. No waffled, but lots of French Toast.

We have been to Max's several times in the last month or two, and while the food is OK, the atmosphere can't overcome it's history of being a coffee shop. Max's is in the former Marie Calendars building, and the decor and food have not changed much. The second trip we were in a little later than usual, so very... More

Although the service is (absent), the hot breakfast buffet is AWESOME and includes sauteed onions and peppers to dress up you scrambled eggs. YUM!

Max's is attached to the Holiday Inn, making it convenient for us to visit. We had already eaten dinner but were hungry for dessert so we dropped by and brought some yummy desserts back to our room (charged it to the room - thanks!). Upon walking in we were immediately greeted by one of the sweetest waitresses I've encountered. I... More

Eating in the bar is fun and they have great, delicious appetizers and deals on drinks. The sweet potato fries are to die for.
