I ordered the mussels. several were unopened on my plate when I finished. I asked that they re-heat them so they open. I was told that they come to the restaurant pre-cooked and that they are only reheated when served. they told me that I shouldn;t eat the mussels that don't open (about 1/3 of the 2lb portion). whaaaaaat?

Then, I am calmly drinking my beer. the bar tender snatches it from under my nose saying that it is the law... no further explanation. I say, fine, I want my money back... he walks in the other direction.... whaaaaaa?

Beertenders are the best here! They know what you should try without it being a snooty experience. Crab pretzels...enough said! Thanks again for another great time!

We visit Max's every time we go to Baltimore. The bartenders are awesome. They are always friendly and a good time. The beer selection can not be beat... over 100 beers on tap! We have eaten here and have been happy with the food!

I should know, I'm from Brussels. 100 beers on tap, 200 in bottles, mad house party the whole week-end, and pretty good food too, we had a blast. 4 little sampler drinks from tap were $14, or you could get a glass or a bottle depending on what you wanted to try. They'll do it again next, word to the wise.
