Description: Max London’s is a casual restaurant & bar committed to a high standard of food and drink. Our passion to provide real food from real farms in our area inspires our seasonal menu. You can enjoy a classic or signature cocktail, a glass of artisanal wine or locally brewed craft beer in an atmosphere that’s warm, welcoming and comfortable. We make all of our organic breads & Max’s mom, Wendy, Mrs. London herself, makes all our desserts, including our incredible sorbets & ice creams. Our Friday, Saturday & Sunday BRUNCH specialties include blue corn buttermilk pancakes, authentic yeast-raised Beligian waffles, omelettes made with the eggs from the heritage breed chickens of American Masala Farm in Hebron, duck hash, & cheeseburgers made from local grass-fed beef. Other features include a soup, pasta & risotto of the day, a slow-roasted pork or smoked beef brisket sandwich, chickpea polenta fries, steak frites from the potatoes of Sheldon Farms in Salem (we make our own ketchup) & smoked salmon (we make our own bialys). Our DINNER offerings always include fish & shellfish, steak, vegetarian fishes, salads, small plates & all of our wood fired pizzas, which are always available, even on our bar menu between lunch and dinner. The pizzas include the classic margherita (yes, we even make our mozzarella), mushroom, sausage, clam and a BLT pizza with Bacon, Leeks, roasted cherry tomatoes and Coach Farm goat cheese. Max London’s is Real food, Real fun & the Real deal. And we at Max London’s hope to see you again Real soon.

“Food is good but beware of drink prices!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Max London's food is very good. We have been there twice recently. Both times we had casual meals (pizza/salad) and it was great. We were surprised by the drink prices. They seem to be very high compared to other places in Saratoga. If you go during their happy hour it is more reasonable.

“Pleasant experience but...”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

We tried Max London's while in Saratoga last weekend. The wine and food were good, but hours after the meal I got sick. Disappointed, but I don't think I'll be eating there again.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

I love this place.. Between the high quality, local, fresh food, the knowledgable but not overwhelming waitstaff and the modern ambiance, it is in my opinion one of the best places in town.. I go at least once a week and have never had a bad experience. The bakery next door(Mrs.Londons) is also one of my favorite places to go for pastries, bread, an a mid morning espresso and panini.

“Poor Quality Food at Brunch”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

My husband, son, and some friends and I met for brunch at Max London's this past weekend. We are local Saratogians and have been to Max London's numerous times over the years and every time we go we always seem to leave feeling underwhelmed. We love the atmosphere, although the trade-off is that we always feel rushed by the wait staff and the restaurant doesnt take reservations unless you have a party 8 or more. This time for brunch I ordered the Broadway Breakfast (eggs, 3 potato has and a choice of a side). The eggs and hash were greasy and cold and the side that I ordered (toast) consisted of two small, bite-size pieces of burnt toast that were hard as a rock. My son ordered a waffle, which also came burnt. The other people in our group ordered pancakes that were so-so and a breakfast calzone that was very good. The food was over-priced for the quality and the restaurant does not offer a children's menu. I think there are better places to go for brunch in Saratoga and wish that Max London's would step up the quality to what it used to be.
