Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great lunch and a terrific server. I would happily return for lunch and have been pleased with the overall quality every time i have been here. Since I don't live near Max Fish, it is more convenient to go for lunch as I work nearby."

  • "Great experience.........we were seated immediately with reservation, waitress cam right over and took drink orders. Service was very good...food was excellent, however a bit pricey Will return for special occasions"

  • "I am not a picky eater at all- will eat anything and everything, so something has to be really good to impress me. The shrimo fra diavlo was hands down the best I've ever had! Just the right amount of kick and not over seasoned. The cheesecake was rich, creamy, and delicious as well! We can't wait to go back!"

  • "If you want a restaurant where you'll be well taken care of without the staff constantly interrupting your meal, Max Fish is for you. Oh, and the seafood is excellent. Providing a pleasurable dining experience seems to be their goal even on a busy Friday night. The lobster Cobb salad had a good portion of lobster as well as sufficient quantities of lettuce, tomatoes, egg, bacon, cheese,etc to truly make a dinner. The dressing complimented the salad without overwhelming it. My favorite cocktail is a Hendrick's gin cucumber martini & was perfect."

  • "Food is always great and the service is usually the best around. On this night it was poor but only compared to the high bar that the Max brand as spoiled us into expecting. Everyone has an off night once in awhile."

  • "The night we were there the A/C was keeping things inside very cold. The blower was blowing directly on us and after we complained about it to our waitress it was fortunately turned down. Three of us had Chowder and one had lobster bisque. WE liked our soup but did not rave about it. Two of us had the salmon cooked without any sauce which was fine and one had swordfish and the other had scallops ,All of us are fish lovers and we will definitely return as we have in the past. It may have just been an off night or we did not order correctly."

  • "My girlfriend and I had dinner at max fish on 7/18/14. I made reservations prior to dinner online. When we arrived we were seated right away. Service was very fast and the staff were very friendly. Our waiter was excellent he filled our waters and checked on us several times. The food was excellent and we both enjoyed our dinner very much. We will be back again."

  • "My family went to max fish for my husbands birthday. It was our first visit although we've been to other max restaurants. It took over 3 hours to eat our meals because there were like 39-45 minutes of waiting between every course. The restaurant was good enough to give us free desserts for our trouble, but it just took way too long overall. Not worth the wait."
    Dined on 7/12/2014

  • "We were regular customers at Max fish and it seemed to go down hill with service,food quality and menu was stagnant. We thought it's been awhile let's try it again. We were pleasantly surprised! They had new additions to the menu we had the whole belly clams that were outstanding! Our entrees were delicious. Max fish is back! Can't wait to eat here again."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Good food and good value - nothing to knock your socks off. At my last visit, the AC was tuned to a crowded restaurant and few people were there (a Monday night). Consequently, it was so cold, I could not enjoy my meal."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "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 6/29/2014
  • "Great place, service was very good, food was excellent - everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. They never make you feel rushed - you are able to enjoy the food as well as your company. Highly recommend."

  • "Our waiter was excellent in clearly presenting the menu and making sure everyone heard what he had to say. Everyone was pleased at their meals and the noise level was reasonable."

  • "The food and service was very good. I will be back but dining inside instead of out."
    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."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "My husband and I have been going to Maxfish for years. It is our favorite of the Max's restaurants. We tried their brunch for the first time and will certainly be back. The food was amazing as usual and the outdoor dini g was fantastic on a nice summer day. Highly recommend!"

  • "I would recommend this place. the food was excellent, fresh fish as it should be, some innovative dishes , good service there when you needed them, the pacing of the courses allowed time for good conversation between courses. the only downside is the noise level as is with all restaurants today."
