A very enjoyable late dinner after a very stressful drive into Norfolk. The food was very good and the service attentive and friendly. We all enjoyed their 3 for 10 combo. Burgers cooked to order with large salads and a very good chili soup.

Nice waiters and food is good but menu is limited to burgers, fires and some salads. The cookies are good and the price is right

After a long day and don't want to go out... Max and Erma's can quench your thirst or fill your belly. I would recommend sitting in verses room service because you get a better selection. Staff was friendly.

Love the hot cookies! Mary waited on us and did a great job. We all enjoyed our food and even had such good serving sizes some of us had to request boxes. My hubby and sons like the wings while I enjoyed the pretzel bread with cheese sauce. I had a burger for my main dish and had to take... More

The food we had tasted good and we had a very nice server. The place was clean and the food tasted good, but no one was in love with their order. We had a cheeseburger, chicken tenders, fish tacos, ruben, and a chicken sandwich. There was a pretty good kids menu and there is an awesome Sundae bar! It's a... More

I usually avoid on site hotel restaurants but since I was without a car, I tried Max and Erma's during a recent hotel stay and was glad I did. We enjoyed good drinks, appetizers, and entrees. Service was very good. I also tried their breakfast buffet one morning which was fine. They apparently offer $5 cheeseburgers on Thursdays (though I... More

Ok. I should know his name but if you stay here often like me, you'll know the older gentlemen bartender who is absolutely fabulous. Great guy. Nice. Soft spoken. Knows lots about the area. Just a wonderful calming presence behind the bar after a long day of work. Makes the visit all the more worthwhile.

Inside the Doubletree hotel and with just a small sign in the back, this Max & Erma's might be missed. They certainly are not trying to attract customers outside of the hotel, but like any other Max & Erma's, the burgers are awesome! I ordered the Tortilla Burger and my wife got the Blackened Tilapia (see attached pictures). The wait... More

Nothing surprising here. Adequate portions, unsurprising menu, moderately capable staff, full bar. There's nothing else outstanding in the neighborhood, so if you're at the Doubletree eating here saves you a car ride.

I came here a few months ago. Was disappointed. Today I am amazed. Even the food is better. As for Maggie... she gives the best customer service.
