Never have to wait very long. They get you in quick. Directly across from convention center and a welcome relief from convention food all day long. Staff is great and very friendly.

We visited here more than once during a 5 day stay for an event at the nearby Convention Center. The food was innovative and fresh, the wait staff was exceedingly helpful and accommodating of our preferences and needs, and the patio was cool and pleasant even in the middle of July. I would definitely return should my travels again take... More

I heard about the cookies at Max and Ermas next to The Crowne Plaza downtown so had to try them. BIG mistake. Had already eaten so I just went to the bar and ordered them to go. They were still raw!!! Unacceptable! Won't be going back.

I ordered room service from Max and Erma's during a recent stay at the Crowne Plaza hotel. The Cola BBQ Bacon Burger was amazing. The next evening I ordered the Southern Fried Chicken salad and enjoyed it, too. Service was friendly and prompt.

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.

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.
