Description: Max Lager's was one of the first restaurants to bring the fresh and natural wood-fired menu concept to Atlanta. The art of cooking with wood enhances the Max Lager's experience with bold flavors simply not found with alternative cooking methods. We feel that the investment made in the wood-fired grill pays great dividends to our guests. All Max Lager's menu items are prepared daily from scratch. Wood-fired steaks, burgers, seafood, ribs, and pizza are Max Lager's signature items. An inspired selection of entree salads and pastas add variety to the American menu. Max Lager's is the oldest brewpub in Georgia, opening in March 1998. Many of Max Lager's house brewed beers have won major awards including two awards at the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado. Max Lager's offers a full bar, wines, local and national craft beers, with a 32 tap draft system in our upstairs bar highlighting a selection of the best craft beers. If you are looking flavorful food and drinks in a warm and inviting atmosphere - Max Lager's is the place to be! Cheers.

“Very good food and drink, very good service”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

My wife and I had lunch here while staying at the Grand Hyatt - only a block away. It has a casual atmosphere with a very good selection of food, beers and wines. We were particularly impressed by our server (a young woman named Michael) who was simply excellent.

We tried (for the first time) the fried green tomatoes, which were interesting. My wife's pulled pork sandwich was average. My hamburger was excellent. All in all, it was a great place for lunch.

“Good Evening”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Walked here from the Marriott Marquis Hotel, which took us about 10 minutes. The food was very good and the menu contained a lot of variety, which is always good when travelling with large groups. I had the local beer all night which I can recommend, and I know that all the other local drinks we had in our party went down a treat too.

The atmosphere was friendly and the prices were reasonable considering we were in the middle of Atlanta. The place was well themed and made the experience even more memorable.

“Barbecue Smoke and Brick”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Chose Max Lager's for reasonable prices and house brews over other spots in the vicinity. That smokey smell inside and manly decor with all the microbrew hardware were a pleasing welcome. Got an Octoberfest draft which was tasty. Our party got Fried Chicken, Trout, and a pizza, all of which were extremely good. Also the Key Lime pie was about the best I'd ever had. Service was not fast but this is a linger-a-little-longer type of establishment...great for enjoyable conversation. The only hiccup was the uninvited roach that scurried across the table after entrees, but these things will happen occasionally. The men's room had nice decor.

I'm a big fan of the American micro breweries/eateries. This is up there with the typical joints.
Good food, great beer - - - - -s l o w service. Its not as though we were at peak hours but service could have been quicker.
