Waiter was excellent. Food average yet very pricey. Atmosphere was very nice with the exception of being loud and sitting under A/C vents as opposed to the center area.

Great burgers with great tasting fries. Plus it's not that expensive considering the rest of the menu. The only problem is the service is not particularly good. The wait staff is very indifferent.

We had a gift card for this restaurant from our kids. Even though it was no more than two miles away, we had never been there. They had been there and loved it. We went for an early Saturday night dinner and chose to sit at a high top booth in the bar area. Since it was not that busy... More

I had heard amazing things about this place but was disappointed by the value for the dollar. The food was WAY overpriced and if they think they are serving jumbo shrimp they need glasses.

We received a gift card for Max 40 and went for a date night. Menu was varied, and since aged beef was their specialty, I ordered the 10 oz. fillet mignon. I'm not a big meat eater, but this dish was cooked to perfection! Wine was excellent and reasonably priced. Vegetables came out cool, but the waiter quickly had them... More

We were offered 3 tables however opted to eat at the bar and leave the 4 tops for those that needed them and sat at the bar - big mistake. The bar tender came over quickly and filled our drink orders and appetizer expeditiously but it went... More

Great food, but terrible service. We were a party of 9 and had made reservations for lunch. Initially the service was good until after our orders were taken. When our meals finally arrived, it was for only one side of the table and they were placed at the wrong seatings. We then waited 3 more minutes for the other side... More

My husband and I just went to Max 40 for the first time for our anniversary. It was delicious - we shared a Caesar salad which was very good. I had the seared shrimp scallops & lobster sauce with julienne vegetables over lemon risotto. It was so delicious I savored every bite. My husband had the filet mignon topped with... More

this is not a real steakhouse, rather it is a steakhouse with all the steakhouse touches and trappings, built unconvincingly in the middle of a warehouse. it might pass for one on a multi-camera sitcom, but not during a visit. it seems more lite a place to hold a convention or banquet, rather than a restaurant. it feels like the...
