    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.

    Average, but decent food. Staff was friendly, but did not advise us at all, everything was "terrific", but it wasn't. Wedge salad was tasty, but huge and we should have been advised to share. The onion soup dumplings were hard, the kale salad under-dressed, the free spinach appetizer was unnecessary, especially since we had ordered appetizers already. It felt very corporate, not a place I'd return to.

    Your restaurant came very highly recommend. I have eaten at Henry's and thought thr quality of food would be the same. I was very disappointed. My steak had a lot of grizzle on it. I brought guests with me and they had the short ribs and found them to be very dried out. I really don't think I would patronize this restaurant again. It was also very noisy.

    Busy, rainy Sunday night. Party of 5, including one 5 year old. Onion soup dumplings, had to try them, and they were good. Ordered the crab cakes, skirt steak, fish tacos and burger. All were good. Have to agree with a couple other reviews on my side for the skirt steak, the mashed potatoes were room temperature. The kids pizza would have made an adult full, ended up taking some home. Service is young and needs some polishing. The soccer game was going on at the bar, and made for a lively scene. Gave the place some energy, as most guest in there were on the senior side. Overall, a good experience.

    Forgot my member award card and staff/bar tender could not find my member # in restaurant computer system. I had to get a new card for the night . Disappointed in this. Extremely noisy when seated at booth across from the bar plus recorded music volume was loud which added to noise. Had to shout to speak with our dinner partners. May dine outside next time in evening. Otherwise I do like Burt & Max menu very much and quality of food.

    This was my third visit. First two visits were five star, fantastic. Third visit may keep me from coming back. The Red snapper was swimming in a bowl of pasta and salty broth, was chewy and smelled fishy...seriously yuck. The waiter forgot items repeatedly, developed a bit of an attitude, and after about 90 minutes (we were done eating) told us he needed the table, "after all, it was Saturday night". Normally I tip 25-30% for great service...he got less than 10%...he he knows why...I should have discussed this with him and the manager but didn't want to waste my time with this contemptibly obnoxious person who should find another career.

    After eating there many times we ceased going because consistency of the food quality changed dramatically for a restaurant owned by this particular group that is an ace as far as we were concerned. Could never depend on the same thing twice, always cold food poorly presented was served. In general it went terribly down hill after being open a few months. Went to movies last Sunday nearby in same center. Thought we would give it a try again. Much better. Oddly enough both dishes were served warm but not hot. They included pasta and hamburger. French fries with hamburger still on the cold side. Because of one of the owners reputations and the fact that we eat at one of his other restaurants and love it, we will go back.

    The best burger I have ever eaten. Whenever I want a burger this is the only place. I asked why the burgers are different? They told me made from brisket and short ribs and yes YUM, YUM. Their salads are excellent. Their quiches very good. A great place to go to and in a great shopping mall. A lovely menu.

    We've been to B&M several times and this happened to be a rainy night and couldn't enjoy the outside as much as we usually do. I brought a couple of clients. The food was good as they have a diverse menu and the ambence was excellent. On the negative side we felt pressured by the waitress to order as she can over to the table a number of times. The whole meal from sit down to exit took about 2 hours. We all kind of felt that they want to turn over the tables quicker. They introduced this matrix type card with specials and discounts which I wasn't interested in saving $ appetizer. I think it makes it a chain like feeling. If I was a red lobster or friday's person it would be different.

    We go here on a regular basis. The food is consistently excellent. All the grilled fish is great. Skirt steak is great too. All appetizers are great. I've had almost every one. The only dish I would change is crab cakes. Very commercial and not lump crab pieces. Otherwise, I have always had excellent dishes.
