“Always great food”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

I think we have been there enough times to have tried most all of the sides. My favorites are still the Greens and the Cheesy Grits. I had the Brisket and 'almost' considered not finishing everything, but I managed. Everyone else enjoyed the dinners also.

“Decent BBQ but nothing special”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Max's does ok BBQ. It's not what I would consider traditional BBQ because they really don't provide any sauce variety. This drawback is not uncommon in this area but we do have some places that do traditional BBQ with a variety of hose made sauces that I think makes the BBQ experience that much more enjoyable.

“One of my favorite places EVER”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This place is a special treat for sure. The food is fantastic (try the brisket) and the local wine and beer list leaves no stone unturned. Great manager too.

“Not bad BBQ”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

The ribs and grits as well as the chicken gumbo were good,but the kale and chili were just ok. There were nice local beer options.

“Going back for some more ribs”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We went this past w/e with 2 finiky kids (2 and 5). The RIBS were OUTSTANDING. I thoroughly enjoyed them. The kids LOVED their wings and chk breast. YUMM Mac and cheese sides. The plates were large and the setting was cozy and fun. Low noise level and busy. wait staff were fantastic. On top of 2 large sides (incl the kids meals) was a fresh mesculn salad.
Lots of leftovers (which we finished up the next night).
