Overall is a fine place to eat. My only wish is a fish be fresher in times. Good Bar atmosphere when in Springfield for business.

I ate outdoors here for the first time and it was fantastic! It was great weather, there menu changed a little for the summer which was great so you don't get super food coma after a meal and the food pairings were quite refreshing.

They have a great bar, so after you eat its nice to have a few drinks if you are dining outside and just hang out with friends.

I am never disappointed with the quality or service at any of the "Max" restaurant group. Went here for a company Christmas party. The party was set up in a separate area from the main dining room. Everything was perfect. The food was served buffet style but was of the highest quality. The wait staff went above and beyond the call of duty in their attentive care of our group. I strongly recommend you try any of the Max locations.

My hotel front desk staff recommended this place when I said I don't est burgers. Wow. Service was great. My server suggested the new kale salad for starter. This is a must and a great options for boring dinner salads. I had the roasted chicken with root vegetables. One of the best chicken dishes I've ever had. Very juicy and tender and crispy at the same time. If I was staying longer I would definitely return for dinner tomorrow.

We went for lunch to use a gift card I'd received from a family member that raves about this place.
Once we got past the hostess that looked like we were putting her through an inconvenience to seat us, we were met ten minutes after we sat down by our very unattentive waiter.
We ordered French onion soup which was tasteless and both ordered salads -- salads that had no effort put into the way that they look, just thrown on the plate. I ordered the iceberg with blue cheese and grilled flank steak. I didn't like anything about it. My friend's salad was a little more aesthetically pleasing but she did not enjoy her's either taste wise.
All in all I could have put up with the mediocre food if the staff has been a little more pleasant and made themselves a little more available. I was surprised we only saw our waiter a few times as it was lunch and we were only one of two tables in the whole dining area.
All in all I'm glad we had a gift card for a sixty dollar lunch that could have been done better at applebees.
