Got pizza to take out for the family. Service was considerate and attentive by the counter lady, who was very nice. The pizza was very tasty. The pepperoni on one of our pies was under a layer of cheese, which was interesting. I'd return here for pizza again.

Picked Max Pizza based on Trip Advisor reviews. After traveling most of the day, we were all very tired and hungry. Max's hit the spot. We ordered takeout. The price was very reasonable. Will try this place again.

We've been going to Topsail for years and years, and we always eat at Max's at least once. They haven't changed at all over time - still a busy bustling spot with friendly servers and decent food. The meatball sub and the steak and cheese are awesome! And of course, the pizza is delicious too. Get here early though -... More

After many disappointments with dining out in the TopSail area, we heard a lot about Max's. Party of four adults and two children. Service was great, pizza was the best we had in the area during the week. Soft drinks had a limit of one refill...really? A very small side of ranch about an ounce was $0.50...okay. The place could... More

We went twice this year, always for takeout because the place is packed and the wait is crazy (because it's really good!). I never had any issues until this year with my orders. They forgot salads, chips, pickles, etc.... and I didn't realize it until I got back to my cottage. I was irritated, but my meatball sub was still... More

This restaurant is good for pizza - you may want to try the Max special pizza which has many of the typical add-ons. Good place for family enjoyment!

When we arrived, the place was crowded and we thought we'd be waiting for a table for a long time. I was wrong, 10 minutes later we were seated. The food was good and the staff was very nice.

This place is always crawling with people. Reason has very good pizza. Only flaw I see is could become to pricey. But currently it's doing good. However noticed the prices keep creeping up each time I go. I go at least twice a year. Love the Max specialty pizza. Owners please level off raising prices. The drinks and appetizers way... More
