Diner Reviews
  • "We are regulars for their lovely brunch. I think they must have been extremely short staffed this last Sunday. It took am extremely long time to get drinks and put on an order. Food was great, just seems like a slip up on service. After our food, we had a very long wait for the bill as well."

  • "I use Open Table frequently and we had a gift card for this past Saturday and decided to use it. It asked if we had special requests, and I did put in a no salt, sugar and light on the fats. When we arrived, we did not have to wait, were seated and our waiter, Mark, came over and as he was discussing the options for dinner, mentioned the chef could use less oils, etc. I was impressed and mentioned to him he must have my request, which he did have with him. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and highly accommodating. The restaurant is casual elegance, the food is fairly organic and farm to table taking advantage of what is available and keeping in mind the ecology system. The chef is prepared our food to perfection. Thanks."

  • "Prefer this to Max's Oyster Bar - the food is better for some reason and it is quiet enough to hold a conversation. Plus........parking is free and available!"

  • "My husband and daughter have August birthdays and both love to celebrate at Max Fish. This year the service was mediocre. My swordfish was not cooked thoroughly at the thickest portion and served lukewarm. I should have sent it back. Several of our mussels were served closed which makes them uneatable. We made the server aware of the this issue and she made no effort to bring us replacement mussels-just shrugged it off. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Little disappointed all the way around. Waited at front desk for over 5 min before being seated. Server was un-attentive initially. Food was ok. One special was no longer available :( and the other was served with a different side offering than explained on menu. One plus, our wine choice was excellent (made without the help of our server)."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."

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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "A nice Friday night meal on a holiday weekend; we were seated right away, had good service and food, however, we felt somewhat rushed."

  • "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!"
