I love to go to Max's on Date Night with my husband. It has a very romantic atmosphere. They sometimes have live music outside on their patio. I love their Creme Brûlée, the best! And their brick oven pizzas are delicious, especially the margherita. They have delicious salmon and grilled tuna also. If you want a great meal with that... More

This cute little up scale Italian restaurant is a hidden gem in Paducah, one would think you're in a bid city. Food is very good, try the baked brie with honey and almonds.....so good.

Max's is an upmarket, somewhat pricey beer and pizza and Italian restaurant with a comfortable vibe and very nice outdoor patios and bar. The pizza features an unusually thin crust, almost cracker like. Toppings go beyond the usual.

Food is always been good and Ambiance is great here but the older lady who runs the place is often Rude mean and I've heard her cuss out people in the dining room it's totally unacceptable to do anything like that and I won't ever be back because of it. it's a shame because the food is great

Lovely atmosphere and wonderful patio. Food is good but not exceptional. Romantic for couples; fun for groups.

Food took over an hour to get. there was only 2 tables total in the whole restaurant. Ordered a sausage pizza, had 3 pieces of sausage and 1 slice of tomato on whole pizza. Spaghetti marinara was cold and tasted like it came out of a can.

Great place to meet friends and family for a night out. The patio setting is my favorite place to have dinner. Lasagna, Chicken with Bow tie pasta & the Crab Cakes are my favorites. You will not be disappointed. Try this quaint setting out the next time you want a great meal. See you next time I'm back in town!
