So if I were going to create a "Mount Rushmore" of restaurants in SJ, Max's HAS to be included. It's always been one of my faves. Stopped in today and had New Orleans chowder and jambalaya. The food came out almost immediately and was piping hot, and tasted like the chef made it onsite. If u like New Orleans style... More
This was my first time at Max's. I love seafood so was looking forward to it. The crab dip app was very good, but I think they could have done better than untoasted pita wedges for dipping. Crab cakes were great. Not much filler, and seasoning was just right. Potatoes and veggies served with cakes were nothing great. Jambalaya was... More
After not visiting this location for almost 30 years we went back as a nostalgic treat. The tavern and restaurant has been completely rebuilt to resemble its original decor from the early 1900's. Entrees were lacking. My 6 large scallops were served on a bed of lettuce and cabbage. Their were no sides offered with my entree, not even a... More
Beautiful, well-preserved corner tavern / restaurant. I loved the interior architectural design and the woodwork throughout. Table was comfy, patrons spaced nicely and quiet so you can enjoy food and conversation. Loved the ratatouille served along with bread basket. So yummy. Flatbread had perfect amount of garlic and mozzarella. Stuffed shrimp was excellent. Mahi was a tad overcooked but side... More
We love to go to this restaurant with as a couple or with other friends! Our adult children love to come here too! The seafood is excellent! The staff is great! A must try!
The food was well prepared and presented. I wanted soft-shells done differently than the special (it was a paella and I just had paella last weekend). I requested sauteed and chef's decision on the preparation. Soft-shelled crab with linguine was great. Our server was not too attentive at times but redeemer herself with a fussy eater at our table. A... More
We have dined here many times, but won't be going back. We were both very disappointed in their new menu. One of our favorites, scallops with balsamic glaze, is no longer on the menu. I settled for the lobster ravioli. They were mediocre because the filling was skimpy. Their mussels in white were delicious as usual, but other places have... More
Overall this restaurant is a disappointment especially for those of us who have experienced the max's when the previous owners had it. They are trying to be an upscale restaurant now and it's not working. The old max's had a simple menu with fair prices and they always had lines out the door. Something is not clicking with this supposed... More
After dropping $400+ on a family meal, I am sure to give an honest review: 1. The waiting staff was poor. Waters gone unchecked. Wine drinks not refilled. 2. The wait on food was extraordinarily long. There was a full 45-60 min. wait between the appetizers and meal. 3. 5 out of the 7 guests were disappointed in the food,... More
