Spent the night at the adjoining holiday Inn, who gave us a free drink coupon and also $6 off of our meals. Dinner was great, choose from a relaxing bar or dining room.

Dropped in for late dinner because restaurant was next to our motel. Partner ordered fried chicken and I ordered shrimp linguini. Both were very good. Came back second night and both ordered haddock fish fry. Excellent. Worth a visit.

Food was very good. Dining room dark, mother-in-law has a hard time reading the menu. Service sometimes slow when the staff stands around talking to each other and not checking on their customers occasionally.

TOTALLY surprised at how much I loved this place. I was staying at the Holiday Inn next door with another coworker and there was only a handful of options in the immediate area which included this place, a Denny's, gas station Subways and a diner across the highway. Not wanting to get food poisoning or struck by a vehicle we... More

After a day of travelling we were recommended this restaurant by the front desk clerk at our hotel. The food was good, quick, and piping hot. The atmosphere was a little lackluster and the booths were a little sticky. If you want reasonable prices and decent food this is a nice place to stop without going into Buffalo.

Max's Classic American Grill, which is near the airport, was a great restaurant with a very large menu selection. Although they did not have a gluten free menu, our server, Shaun, was very knowledgeable about gluten free. Having ordered a grilled chicken sandwich, Shaun went the extra mile to make sure the ingredients in the salad dressing were all gluten... More

I had a burger here cooked exactly how I asked. This shouldn't be a rare thing, to get what I ask for, but it is and Max's accomplished the task. The waiter was excellent and the ambiance was soothing. The place was empty, except for me, I have no idea why, and I enjoyed my meal.

Second visit. First time not so great so gave them a second chance. Failed again. We had small children in the group but were not offered children menus. Finally parent stood at hostess desk for about 5 minutes to ask for one. Manager walked past her 3 times and ignored her. At least one waitress walked past her without helping... More

Don't let the location prevent you from trying Max's. The ugly industrial area near the airport isn't appealing, but we were pleasantly surprised when we were inside. The interior is dark wood and quite spacious. The waiter was excellent. Burgers are excellent! Love the 50s and 60s music-inspired names. They are hokey but cute.

Thank famillehamilton
