Yikes, what happened? Max Tavern used to be pretty decent but the last few times have been so disappointing, we vowed to never return. My husband always used to order the Cowboy steak which used to be a top quality thick tender ribeye, everything you'd expect from a 37.00 steak. The last few times he ordered it, its been a different piece of meat. Thinner, tougher and clearly a lesser quality piece of meat. Now its a low quality steak for a premium price--no thanks. Did they think people wouldn't notice? My favorite on the menu has always been the tuna tacos. Last night when we went, the tacos were not good; the tuna 'gristle' was left on instead of trimmed, and you can't chew through the stuff. Ultimately led to having to try and discreetly keep spitting these portions out into my napkin. Yuck! Rawbar is fine but don't order the crab claws--they are a joke! Finally, I question any restaurant that serves maple bourbon glazed sweet potatoes with apple smoked bacon brasied collard greens year round including spring and summer. To me, that is a very "autumn"y meal. I prefer restaurants that change the menu a little to reflect what is in season. We do like the Max restaurants but Max Tavern seems like the "ugly stepchild" of the Max chain.
