The food was good, reasonably priced and the service was good too. I would recommend for those attending a conference in Western New York at or near this property.

Ate here several times over my 10 day stay at the attached hotel. Tried a few different things and was mostly pleased by everything. Some food is pretty bland. Love their poutine fries just tell them no salt on fries unless you LOVE overly salted food. Portions were big as well as reasonably priced. Most of the staff was friendly... More

My husband and I had dinner here while staying at the Best Western Airport Hotel. Max's Grill is located in the Holiday Inn next to the Buffalo/Niagara Airport and next to several other hotels within walking distance. We were able to walk next door to have dinner. I was concerned that a restaurant located in a hotel would have high... More

I ate here while staying at the Holiday Inn. The restaurant staff was VERY friendly and professional. I had the Jerry Leaf Lewis spinach salad with scallops and a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Very good. I recommend it for a solid value with great taste.

Max's was very nice, I was surprised how empty it was. I ate here twice while staying locally near the airport on business. The menu is very extensive and offers great variety. Each item I tasted was very good. Everything from burgers, steaks, Shrimp and Scallops on Anger Hair Pasta. Enjoyable.

Although the ambiance is cool and the names of the food on the menu is fun, the service here was very bad. Not sure what the staff was doing on a not so busy evening, but we were always waiting for the waitress. And when the food was delivered we were not happy with the quality. June Cleavers meatloaf was... More

I came here a number of times while I was int he area. The lunch here is fantastic. i stuck to sandwiches, but they were good enough that I didn't have to stray. The menu is kitschy, but the descriptions under the rock-and-roll styled names are good enough to figure it out. The "Mack the Knife" burger was my favorite.... More

This place was next to our hotel, so we came across it by accident. The steak was well-made and delicious. We had takeout, but they treated us like we were dine-in, including having a Manager ask us if all was going well while we waited for the food.
