    we were seated next to children and a large party that was loud and raucous. service was slow and food was fair. disappointing as previous 4 experiences had been less than expected with Rappaport brand. Decided to revist as heard that Henry's chef was there and enjoy Henry's!

    Two couples dined on Saturday night and all enjoyed the dinner. My husband and I had the salmon and swordfish respectively and both were excellent. Mine was cooked a little too much. Being originally from Boston and fish lovers, we find it hard to find chefs who know how to cook fish down here. They do a good job at this restaurant. If only they could do something about cushioning the noise level.

    Although the hostess was not at all pleasant or accommodating it did not spoil our birthday celebration. Our server, Liz, was absolutely on top of everything, continually checking on us, smiling and alert to our needs. Not once did we have to find her! The food, as always, was fantastic and cooked to perfection. We love eating at Burt & Max's because of the quality and consistency of a great meal!

    A bad waitress that didn't care ruined the evening. Food came out wrong (3 of 4 meals). It's hard to believe that the kitchen was totally at fault, if at all, for this. And it was hard to get it corrected without a long discussion and some snide looks. She apparently discussed it with a manager but neither the waitress or a manager ever came over during the meal like they usually do to see how we were doing. They avoided us and we got the barest of service after they got the meals right. Food was just okay, at best. While a bad server may not mean all are the same, the apparent lack of managerial support to remedy the problem and the feeling that they really didn't care makes this a place I would not recommend.

    If you don't go into it thinking you're going to have the experience of your life, you'll like Burt and Max's. I would call it gourmet bar food. My husband ordered the onion soup dumplings, which are always a pleaser. My daughter ordered a margarita pizza which was pretty good and I had the chopped salad and the crab cakes. The crab cakes are made with jumbo lump crab which is a must for me, but it had too many bread crumbs for my taste. Still, I enjoyed it. And their chopped salad is my old standby, so I knew I would be happy! The service was good. Our waiter was very attentive and didn't seem to disappear at all while it was pretty busy. All in all, a nice meal, but no frills!

    This was our first time at Burt & Max's, but I guarantee that it will not be our last. The food was very good and the portions were quite generous. In fact, my grilled salmon was better than at most fish specialty restaurants. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. We'd heard good things about Burt & Max's and this was one place that lived up to it's reputation.

    We had a fun evening with friends. The staff was welcoming and kept us informed. Even with a reservation we waited 20 minutes for the table but it passed quickly because they bought us a drink. We had burgers. I had the turkey and it was well grilled. The beef burgers however were the big hit of the night juicy and flavorful.

    It was quite busy, as is typical for a Saturday night. I checked in for my reservation 30 minutes early to sit at the bar for a drink first. We were barely at the bar 15 minutes and were called. Our waiter was wonderfully friendly and professional. We already had a appetizer that was brought from the bar along with our drinks. He gave us our space. Very seamless transition. Salads and dinner were ordered. Each and every dish was delicious. Skirt steak and fish tacos were shared on our side of the table. Pizza and short ribs on the other side. We were all pleased with our selections. We have NEVER had a bad experience there. WILL return again and again!

    We very much enjoy eating at Burt and Max's grille offering a nice well rounded menu and good fresh food and open kitchen as well as point cards for all of their various restaurants. They are quite accommodating for a very busy happening restaurant. There are booths and even round tables, indoor and outdoor seating..............Noisy but a good noise! and a Great meeting place..............Just plan to wait upon arrival often even if you have reservations! but if you are lucky they will serve you some free hordourves during your wait.

    We tried it again because we heard there was a new menu/management; but same old mediocre food. This has to be the noisiest restaurant in town. Impossible to carry on a conversation. The server disappeared during the entire meal. had to stack our our dishes and ask another server for more drinks. Fish sandwich bread stale and fell apart.

    This is a fun-filled, delightful place to come to in the evenings (indoors or outdoors), with or without the family. The menu is interesting, and has something for everyone. The burgers are delicious, as is the chicken and fish (Delicious Idaho trout). Great steak fries, super sweet potato fries. Staff is friendly and accmmodating, too.

    When you talk about a great neighborhood restaurant, this is the real deal. You can have anything from a burger & fries to a full steak dinner. It's family friendly & also adult friendly - meaning, there's several families, but no screaming out of control kids. Our waiter was courteous & friendly, & got our order in correctly. The prices are reasonable & the atmosphere is casual. We enjoy going there after a movie.
