Diner Reviews
  • "Max Fish is such a gem! Their food is always so fresh and their menu is chock full of many different dishes to choose from. I have been there for dinner several times and it makes for a great evening out with friends."

  • "A nice Friday night meal on a holiday weekend; we were seated right away, had good service and food, however, we felt somewhat rushed."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Doesn't disappoint. Love the food, the service, the whole experience is always top notch. They make it all seem so effortless, just what we want, a quiet romantic dinner, good service, not too much, but right there when needed."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Service was not up to the usual standards; hot sauces were not brought to the table for the oysters and silverware was not automatically replenished. The restaurant was not crowded so it might have been an inexperienced server. Not a large wine list but decent pricing; you find a good wines for $30-40. Appetizers are creative, the Baltimore Shrimp has a dozen spicy shrimp. The menu changes based on the available catch but always has 8 or 9 selections. There are two dining areas: white table cloth main with reservations necessary; the casual bar with a slightly different menu."

  • "My husband and I arrived and headed straight to the Bloody Mary bar for some bacon infused vodka and filled our glasses to the hilt with pickled vegetables, stuffed olives, pepperoni, mozzarella, shrimp, celery- delicious! Our brunch meals were also fantastic, I had crab cake benedict and he had a shortrib and egg dish. We both left full and very happy and anxious to return!"

    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The food at Max Fish is beautifully prepared and delicious. From the jumbo crab cake and tuna sashimi appetizers to the Caesar and field green salads to the cod, monk fish, and salmon entrees, all was excellent. At those prices, I expect great food. What I DON'T expect is a water glass with large black bits floating in it, a mangled and unusable fork at my place setting, and a cocktail served in a chipped glass. I don't expect to be served a single roll with no subsequent offers and no basket left on the table. That's just stingy. Max Fish must pay better attention to the details, because at their prices, those mistakes are unacceptable. I don't feel compelled to return when the dining experience feels shabby."

  • "It was my first time there. The food was really good. Lobster was awesome. It was served with amazing mashed potatoes. Oyster were awesome as well. The yellowfin tuna did not have as much taste as usual though. The lobster roll was really good. But the wine list... Not so much. How can you serve food like that, when you have Spanish withe wine... Spain does not do any good white wines. The server even told me it was a good combination with Lobster... NOT AT ALL. Pouilly-fuisse would have made this restaurant from "GOOD" to "EXCELLENT"."

  • "Amazingly friendly and cordial wait staff, he was able to explain every little detail of a meal, almost as though he was a critic for a food magazine or TV show, who was describing the beauty, the flavor and the texture of the food he was presenting so you could taste it before you ordered."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "I've eaten here many times and I must say that I was not at all impressed with the eggs benedict this time. I ordered a traditional dish but asked to substitute an English muffin for the biscuit which was offered. They failed to add the meat to the dish and the hollandaise sauce was so buttery I couldn't even eat it. Overall this place is amazing but I'm not sure that I'll be back for brunch again"
