  • Really?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    Very disappointed. Over priced but more importantly the food was less than spectacular. The Special Flatbread Turkey Avocado club had absolutely no flavor. I would have liked to wash it down with an unsweetened tea, but they do not serve unsweetened tea they did have a passion fruit tea but I could not get a taste of it because my wife and sister-in-law sent theirs back because it was awful. They carry Grey Poupon mustard only. Do your kids eat Grey Poupon mustard? Mine do not. Overall a great disappointment for a sunday lunch.

    Pam and I rank Max's in our Top5 south Florida restaurants. Always honor Open Table and be sure to request to sit on outdoor patio. People watching at Mizner is so much fun and watching high end cars stopping for Valet is enjoyable. Wine selection is good and Cuba Libra's well prepared. Southwestern Cobb Salad for one and Chicken Caesar for the other.

    I had the Maple Salmon which was cooked just as I like. I like my fish moist not dry and this came out just right. My friend had egg battered snapper which he sad was very good. They also had 3 beers on tap which is new and I enjoy the Fat Tire.

    Love coming to Max's Grille. . I have already rated the food and service, etc. This time though, fo the firstt time, the wine that was given in the special was absolutely awful. We both got bad headaches and this has never happened. I think I will call the restuarant and let them know. We have been coming to MG fo 5.5 years and this was a first.

    Max's Grill is a perfect spot to bring a group of family or friends with diverse tastes. The diverse and fairly extensive menu ensures something for everyone, and the quality of the food is reliably good. The restaurant is pretty and well-appointed - definitely providing an upscale feel but at a reasonable price point (at least by Boca Raton standards). In cooler weather, the outdoor tables and bar are great...comfortable seating, lively atmosphere and good service. All in all, Max's is my "go-to" neighborhood restaurant!

    Sat inside with hardly any air on. Told the server & said the manager saidno one else is complaining. The server said the help was hot also. He would not come over to our table, did not offer a round if drinks or a dessert. Was with an older crowd & it was not nice for a manager not to here us out.

    I was expecting much more from this place based on previous reviews. My husband and I went here for our anniversary. We had brunch. I was not impressed with the food and neither was he. We expected better for the prices they charged. The bread with hummus and tea were sadly my favorite. We would have been much happier eating at Outback and saving some money. As for the service and atmosphere, that was absolutely the best. Waitress was extremely attentive and nice without being overbearing. The restaurant was very calm and quiet still. Made for a very relaxing event which we don't get very often anymore.

    When we arrived for our reservation, we were offered a table in the bar and when we said we preferred being in a dining room the hostess copped an attitude. We were seated in a dining room and soon observed that a table next to us had a table cloth, though none of the others tables did. We asked our server and he told us it was the owner and her guests. So bare tables are ok for customers but not for the owner! We found this offensive and elitist. Food was decent, but the whole experience was overshadowed by situation.

    Last visit was to take out friends from out-of-state. Outside dining, especially on the weekend might be too much activity if you wish to enjoy a peaceful excellent fun dinner with friends. Go for the indoor evening dining - it's a little more conversation-friendly, a little more personal, but not quiet by any stretch. A good bar, an excellent menu, excellent meal preparation. Service is as crisp and quick as you like, or as relaxed as you wish. One note, though - inside mid-floor dining is a little less intimate, a little more squeezed in. Go for the booth desire a little more privacy. Wherever, whenever, you won't be disappointed at Max's and you will definitley return!

    We have been here many times during the "high" season but this was the first time in "off" season. The food was very good (excellent Ahi Tuna ) but the service was below what I would have expected. The main dishes came while we were still eating the appetizers and they didn't come back for the plates from the appetizers until the whole meal was done.

    HowardVIP
    Dined on 6/29/2014
    You have an idea what the quality of the food will be like when you look at the wood door to the mensroom and see that the finish is totally worn and rubbed off. Same applies to food quality, and presentation. Ordered special of fried chicken...sold out by 6:45pm...so had the meatloaf...dried out, with what seemed to be canned mushroom sauce...the "yukon gold" mash potatoes tasted like they were from a box and were put on the plate with an ice cream scoop. Only thing that tasted fresh on the plated were the grilled asparagus spears. The meatloaf next door at Racks is much larger, fresher and more nicely presented..may be a dollar or more, but well worth it. Max's needs to move on...what an insult to Dennis Max.

    We have been going to Max's for years. Unfortunately the menu selections have been narrowed down too much. Entree salads are few, and lack variety. Portions were small. My husband ordered a side salad, which was the same size as the entree salad. We ordered key lime pie for dessert, and were very disappointed by the lack of taste and lack of airiness that it usually has. Of course, we loved sitting outside in a booth, and the service was pretty good. We were quite concerned when our credit cards were taken, and not returned for a long, long time. With so much identity theft prevailing, we started to get concerned....

    We used to love this place & go there at least once a month, but last Saturday my parents got there first. My dad was very tired and asked to be seated, the hostess told him they couldn't because in order to be seated the restaurant's policy was that everybody had to be there. Then he asked to talk to the manager, that lady didn't even looked him in the eyes, said in a very rude way "those are the restaurant's policies" & kept walking. Later we found out she is the manager, what a surprise because to be a manager of a restaurant the first thing is that you have to be nice and polite to the customers. The servers there always treat us very nicely because almost everybody knows us, but that lady didn't have any manners at all, what a manager!
