Look behind Auburn's IN-And-OUT and you'll find MAX'S just off I-80 next to Holiday Inn. Kinda reminds me of an old steak house with it's décor, varied dining menu, mid range prices, good service, and easy on/off to Hwy 80. Had some nice dinners and lunches there. Full bar also

Great food paired with great wines, what more could you ask for. There was food in abundance well matched to the varietals from Fawnridge. The next morning we had a good breakfast at Max's and checked out their sandwich menu which looked super.

Whether you eat Sunday brunch, lunch or dinner, you will NOT be disappointed. Be sure to have an eclair or take one home for later. Debbie, our server for two dinners, was excellent and gracious. We did miss the former hostess, Suzy, who was great too. Stay at this Holiday Inn attached to Max's and your stay will be the... More

I simply love Max's. It is a clean and cozy restaurant tucked away behind the hotel. I consider it a best kept secret. The food is delicious and the service is friendly. What more can you say?!

The menu is quite varied and they currently offer a complimentary tasting of wine probably in hopes that you will order a glass. We did and it was a substantial pour at $8.00 a glass. The salmon was cooked to perfection with a nice light sauce of dill. I substituted mashed potatoes and green beans for sides that I wasn't... More

The quinoa and salmon salad was amazing!! Wife and I each had cups of soup: Matzo Ball and Russian Cabbage...OMG!! Gourmet soups and a gourmet salad. What a gem of a place hidden in the Holiday Inn in Auburn, CA.

We have enjoyed Mother's Day brunch, lunches & many dinners at Max's and they all have been extremely good. We have had many birthday meals at Max's and the desserts are the best you can find anywhere. The desserts are so yummy & they are big enough to share, if you like macaroons you really should try theirs.

This restaurant is located on the second floor of the hotel with two entrances. Nice bar with big screen tv. Full menu, good prices. French onion soup was good. Fresh bake pastries available for deserts. Happy hour drinks available. Friendly staff. Appears to be frequented by the locals.
