A word from Max Lager's Wood-Fired Grill & Brewery
Max Lager's was one of the first restaurants to bring the fresh and natural wood-fired menu concept to Atlanta. The art of cooking with wood enhances the Max Lager's experience with bold flavors simply not found with alternative cooking methods. We feel that the investment made in the wood-fired grill is an investment that pays great dividends to our guests.

All Max Lager's menu items are prepared daily from scratch. Wood-fired steaks, burgers, seafood, ribs, and pizza are Max Lager's signature items. An inspired selection of entrée salads and pastas add variety to the American menu.

Diner Reviews
  • "Service was slow in getting food out . But food was good"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We were told about this place by some locals, great food and service."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The food was good, but not the greatest. We tried the mac n cheese as other reviews suggested but honestly it wasn't as good as I expected. My ribs were good and , my husband enjoyed his burger. Overall the food mostly needed seasoning. That would have made it great and not just good."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "It was not very crowded but we were there in the middle of the week. The waiter we had was fantastic,,, he wanted to make sure we had everything kept checking on us. Also he gave us a couple of samples of the brews they did that we would be interested and we bought a glass,,, it was so good and different. All in all we enjoyed ourselves and the food was very pleasing. We would definitely go back there some other time and I will tell my friends that this is a place they will enjoy"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We visited the downtown Atlanta establishment while visiting from Colorado Springs. While the food was very good it was Jeff our waiter who made the experience over the top awesome. He was spot on with food choices, excellent with splitting checks, and all around fun and efficient. Although were really busy but you would have thought we were the only people there his service was so good."

  • "Great food, good friendly service. The was ok, but I am fairly picky on what I like though. The Black Max was an interesting brew."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I like to try something new each year and Max Larger made this list this year. I had the fried chicken and it was excellent!!! I had to try the wings while I was there (no I couldn't wait for my next trip, it was My B-Day) and I'm so glad I did. Loved them..............nice size, and the taste was on point!!! My bestfriend's daughter had the kid's rib plate and when I looked up the bones were clean. I was happy and my party members each enjoyed their meals, so yes I would come back here again. -sevice was great....light crowd around 6pm on a Sat"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Stated on website valet parking on weekends after 5:30, but this was not the case. Drove around looking for a spot and then had to pay $10 for 90 minutes in restaurant. Bummer. Everything ordered from wood fired oven/ grill was tasty, as we're cheese grits. Our server, Ben, very attentive."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This was one of the worst dining experiences ever. The waitress gave my wife a glass of beer with the broken bottom, some of the glass stuck into her fingers, they didn't even apologize, and of course we still have to pay for the beer. Furthermore, they have very strange kid's menu, we ordered baby ribs, for out daughter, and it was extremely spicy even for an adult. I would not recommend this place for dining."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Our two bartenders and ou rwaiter were good at what they did, but Not one smile during the hole evening from anybody. They ere like machines doing a job. NO personality at all."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Great beer, great food, and a wonderful staff! I will be back!!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Staff was very friendly and attentive. It was my wife's Birthday and she really enjoyed herself. We all had a great time."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "The setting, the scenery and the location is perfect. The steak and shrimp..and gumbo..and Mac and cheese were not the best. The chicken and the fish were reportedly good. Great for a group that loves to talk and wants to hear each other. Not so good if you're big on food taste. Chris and Ben were absolute darlings: not smothering but they also did not forget about you either."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I had read the reviews and expected a good meal and a pleasant ambiance . . . what I did not expect was to be increasingly amazed with each course as it arrived at our table. I just can't pick one favorite! "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "The restaurant was very accommodating for our Canadian guests who wanted to watch the hockey game. The hostess was on top of our request and made sure we were in place near the large screen TV. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed the craft beer selections. "
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Excellent spot for a good buffalo burger and home crafted beer for lunch. Service was fast."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "The service and atmosphere are fantastic. They have a cool varied menu covering all the bases of gastropub type food. My mom and I both got filets and salad, and although we had to send the steaks back to be cooked a little longer, they turned out great. You also have to check out the upstairs area with all the different beers they are brewing in house! "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Best burger i had in a really long time (I've had lots over the last 10 years) Steaks and beer were good too, burger was brilliant "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Good food welcoming and helpful servers. It would be difficult not to have a good time at this restaurant "
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "We had a larger party (8) and booked a reservation - we were seated right away and our waiter was friendly and efficient. The lunch menu is reasonably extensive and they accommodated minor special requests without blinking an eye. This is a great place for an office lunch or post-work dinner. If you have a large party, reservations are probably a good idea, as it gets pretty busy during peak hours."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "Took a group of 5 high school business students here for a "business meeting" - great selection, reasonable prices, something for everyone. This place has a very energetic vibe, there was a private party going on in the room next door, lots of dining guests and happy hour guests. The aroma as soon as you walk in is delicious!!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "We found Max Lagers online as we search for a good place to meet some old friends in a downtown Atlanta location. We made a great choice. The food was great as was the beer selection. Our table by the bar was a little small but the service to clear plates was spot on. "
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "We went there for prom & out waitress was super nice & the food was amazing ! Also very cool looking inside."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We were in town for the weekend, and decided to have lunch before a full afternoon of appointments. The restaurant contacted us on our drive into ATL and we requested a table near a TV that wold show the Manchester United soccer game. When we arrived, they had a booth ready for us with a perfect view of the game. Our server was attentive and didn't seem aggravated with us "hanging out" after eating to watch the whole game. The fish and chips were wonderful (as usual). "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This brewery is really spot on. I came here with my parents and met a friend. Dinner was wonderful. I had an appetizer and a salad. Definitely recommend the roasted chicken flatbread. The beer was good, not great but still a fun place to hang out. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "My co-workers and I were very pleased with the food and ambience. Very convenient location to meet after work for dinner."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "I was on a trip to Atlanta recently with my son. We were famished after our trip to the Georgia aquarium and we found this gem on the way back to the hotel. Fantastic food! Fantastic micro and craft brews!! The service was awesome. Very friendly servers who know the menu and the beer. In fact it was so good we went there the next night for dinner. Try the pork chops and the southern fried chicken you'll be doing yourself a favor if you do. Can't wait to go back to Atlanta to try it again."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "In town for the first time and enjoy eating at local spots versus big brand eateries and really like to go to micro breweries for their beers. Atmosphere was below average and house brews we limited. Food was good but typical bar classics selections. Was hoping for more."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Like this place alot. The food was good and nice selection of beers. Not fancy but fun. One complaint - the booth seats are too low for the tables."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "I was in town for the week in Atlanta for a major trade show and we looked up on trip advisor and noticed Max Lagers and felt we had to get there so glad we did! A very vibrant scene tastefully done service was outstanding Jeff Hoskins was our server extremely knowledgeable of their beers and very passionate about the items on their menu. We didn't really even need our menus because Jeff's recommendations were outstanding we brought back an even larger group the next night everybody had a wonderful evening and raves about how good the food is in the craft beer selection Without hesitation I would return to Max Lagers the next time I'm in Atlanta"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "1st time in Atlanta, found on internet. what a great place, server, jeffery, was amazing, was very knowledgeable about the beers. being a brewer myself, he made great choices for me and my wife. hope to go back sometime, if we can get through the traffic first."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This was a recommendation by the hotel staff and they were right! The fried chicken, mashed potatoes and collard greens were OMG Good! This is my first stop whenever I am in town"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "It was my annual visit to Atlanta--and we couldn't pass up an opportunity to dine at Max Lagers! The local beer is wonderful, and the food is fantastic!!! What an awesome menu! The major disappointment both times we've been there was the service. Sad to say the hostesses and servers almost ruined the experience again this year. We felt very rushed, almost like an inconvenience, and the only smiles were from the bartender! Server this visit did not go over any specials, did not have a recommendation on beer, and did not smile or engage our group the whole time."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Whatever you do, don't order desert to go; smallest piece of key lime pie I've ever seen. Food over priced and average. Beer is probably what you go for. Service not bad until they get busy. Noisy. Best part about it is that they are on Open Table so you can make a reservation easily. Good location if you are staying downtown."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "I took a friend in from Portland OR. The wine was so-so (and hard to compare to Portland's wines), the salad was average and the flat bread was horrible. The chicken was very dry, the crumbled cheese was just as dry, if not worse than the chicken. Very disappointing considering the reviews. The wait staff was nice though!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We were seat quickly. Waitress was excellent. All services were helpful and friendly. Pork Chops were awesome. Gravy was rather spicy. Enjoyed the beer sampler. Great place to have a good beer and meal. Good value for the cost of the meal."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I could write a book on how dissapointed i was with this restaurant. Its a good neighborhood bar I guess, but since we were visiting...not so good. our server never cracked a smile. did the minimum required. very dissapointed. Food was okay. the Tenderloin was anything but tender! I will never go back! Sorry! Maybe I expected a little more ambience considering the pricing! :( Way too loud for an evening dinner."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "In town for a single night with our teenage son, we were looking for a place with an interesting menu and quality food. Max Lager's met our expectations. There were fun spins on traditional Southern dishes and good seafood options. For beer-drinkers, it's a no-brainer -- many fun choices -- but there were thoughtful selections for those wanting wine by the glass as well. After starters and main courses, we regretted that we were too full for dessert, since that sounded good too. We were happy with our choice and would easily recommend it to others."

  • "The restaurant was great. Me and my wife just celebrated our 2nd year wedding anniversary and we loved it. The food was amazing, the atmosphere, and the overall experience."

  • "Dined while in Atlanta on business. Liked it so much we returned again during our 5-day stay. The first night I had the Low Country Trout with spicy sausage and crawfish jambalaya. The entree and Arugula Salad were both prepared very nicely with lots of layered flavors. The second night I had the Wood-Fired Filet Mignon and the wood-fired flavor was excellent as was the preparation - medium rare right on. I'm a wine drinker but we had a beer while waiting for our table both nights. It was worth the wait and I highly recommend this restaurant for neo-upscale food at fair prices."
