We have eaten dinner here quite a few times and we were passing through Springfield and decided to stop here for lunch. While there is a special lunch menu, our server offered to get us any steak we wanted from the dinner menu. I opted for the burger (awesome) and my wife had onion soup (superb) and the fresh carved... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Max's. The Mahi Mahi was wonderful and the steak was amazing! The restaurant is beautiful and the service was very attentive. We enjoyed the meal very much!

We stopped here last July and were excited to eat here again. We ordered two of the same dishes last year and were disappointed. Sadly we felt overpriced for our meals this time. Won't be coming here again.

We met a friend here for dinner primarily because it was easy to book a reservation through Open Table. All aspects of the experience were good: liked the classy, clubby look, service was attentive and professional, and we enjoyed drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert.

This is a really nice place, but not at all formal. We had the Salmon a la Plancha and the Hanger Steak. Both were excellent and the portions were large. We ate our leftovers for lunch the next day. The service was friendly and efficient .

I visited with some friends. We all had bugers. We all had the Maxx burger 5 oz. Not a complaint about the burgers. Fries were greasy and over done. I should have sent them back. Service was good. Loud atmosphere hard to hear unless you spoke loud. Maybe we would go when it's not as busy.

Very accommodating and the food was delicious! Steaks and fish were done to perfection! The menu has something for everyone and the location, next to the Basketball Hall of Fame was just right for us. The outside dinning was also a pleasure.

Fancier than what we were looking for. Excellent kids meal - very healthy and appealed to the young man. Overall great food and service. Reasonable price for what was delivered.
