We came here during our ThirtyOne conference. Downtown was packed with ladies. Max and Erma's accommodated the crowd with ease. It was next door to our hotel so we popped in a couple of different times. Yes, there was a wait that was to be expected but the politeness, smiles, atmosphere made waiting a breeze. And the service and quality... More

Every time I eat here I am not disappointed. Their tortilla soup is very satisfying and delicious. Service is friendly and fast. Nice pub atmosphere.

We arrived at 9:30 pm on a Saturday night and the restaurant was not busy at all. We sat outside and it took over 5 minutes for our waitress to come get our order. It took over 10 minutes for her to get our WATER to us. It took another 25 minutes to get our food. However, our order was... More

Food was good. Even arriving Luke warm. Had fish tacos and they were great. Give them lots of time. Originally said 25-30 minutes. Took an hour after a follow up call.

With my two teen boys, we love burgers! This place has such a great variation of steak burgers, and they taste so good! Staff was very nice and helpful making decisions. Full bar scene but we are good with the ice tea's! Best part was we were staying at the hotel, so having the restaurant inside was a bonus! After... More

Went to this place for lunch given it is located directly next to the hotel I was staying at- ordered the "Knock-Out Nachos" from the menu and was only mildly impressed- more tortilla chips than toppings overall. Nevertheless, the service was prompt and courteous and the prices were fairly reasonable. Décor within the restaurant needs upgrade.

Max & Erma's is adjacent to the Crown Plaza Downtown. We enjoy the omelets for breakfast and the salads and burgers are awesome any other time.

I stayed next door at the Crowne Plaza, got in to town and decided to venture to Max and Erma's for an adult beverage (which turned into three the bartender made my drinks so tasty!) and dinner.

This restaurant is very convenient if you're staying at the Crowne Plaza...it's right next door. To me it seemed like the typical American chain, something like a Chili's or TGI Friday's but less themed. The food was exactly as you'd expect and nothing more. They have a decent beer selection and some good promotions on certain days of the week... More
