I had the TOMATO, MOZZARELLA & CHICKEN(TMC) with the Village salad. My wife had the Max Club with a house salad. Service and food was good. Not all items on the menu had calorie count. Waitress was excellent and left a 33% tip.

In 1972, Max & Erma created a fun, unique restaurant so friends and family can gather for good times and a great meal, and decorated it with eclectic artifacts and local paraphernalia. Since that day, we've been committed to providing our guests with irresistible heartland classics and friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere the whole neighborhood can enjoy. We've grown over the years, but always remain true to what makes us successful - delivering a great memorable experience so that every guest leaves with a smile. After all, Max & Erma wouldn't have it any other way.
