I've always had very attentive servers here; my wife and have been able to meet for lunch several times as we are both within walking distance, and we always leave feeling well-satiated. There always seems to be something different than you can get at other more-standard restaurants; one of my... read more

...not this time. Begin with an indifferent receptionist who is quite obviously far more interested in texting than in doing her job. Add an indifferent waiter who needs to be reminded to bring the ordered glass of wine and who can't seem to have picked up the correct hamburger for delivery to the table. Then finalize the evening with a... More

Amazing burgers and delicious pub food. Kale salad is a great option for a lighter choice. Onion rings are generous portion and addictive. I recommend they develop some house sodas.

We ate here several times over the years. Always order their truffle burger with truffle potato totes. I would not call their salads BIG but they are big enough for a good meal.

The wait staff is extraordinary! Last time we were there, the place was jam packed. We waited and finally got a table in the bar. It was wall to wall people and my family of four was a little testy. Our waitress completely changed our mood. She was happy, patient, amusing and very helpful. My favorite sandwich the Choke n"Chicken... More

Max Group always has well-maintained restaurants with very well trained help. Burgers are great, but somewhat expensive.

Truffle burger is great. The steaks are so so. Great craft beers available. Nothing beats the candied house made bacon though

Everything Max's has been excellent since the first time I've been in one. Although this has more of a casual feel, the food is top notch. Great burgers, good ribs, good apps. Some interesting adult milk shakes. Friendly staff with quick seating, even its been crowded. In warm weather, nice patio

I have great respect for the Max Group and am generally pleased with their food and ambiance; but not today. Perhaps it was partially our fault. Ordering salads in a place that has burger in its name is a recipe for disappointment. But before we get to the food, why does it have to be louder that a commodities market... More
