“Blast from the Past”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We went to the one in Dublin. OMG! It felt like you went to your great aunt's house, no not for good food. The decor was from the 70s (at best), you know when your cousin goes and gets his mom a new flat screen but no one thinks to tell her that Yellow and brown decorations are not long the style.

“Expensive burgers, decent flavor.”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

I just wasn't wowed. It was fine for what it was, but not worth that prices and the atmosphere didn't do it for me. Too noisy.

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Good service, quality food, historic area/buliding. The 'original' Max and Erma's in German Village is the best. Great atmosphere, great place for lunch. Good service.
