Mother's DayEnjoyed Max's Tavern for Mother's Day. The food was excellent, the service was great & Mom was very happy! Could not ask for more...5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayHad a 130p reservation for Mother's Day. Waited15 minutes, not unreasonable for the occasion. Service was excellent though both kitchen and bar were VERY backed up. Our server kept us abreast of the delays & apologized profusely. When food arrived, it was delicious and obviously had not been sitting around. Lobster gnocchi was wonderful & the lobster tail garnish was perfectly cooked. Fish and chips entree was excellent as well. No room for dessert but the special dacquoise sounded yummy. One complaint- 2 of us ordered a Hemingway which was essentially a daiquiri glass stuffed with consolidated ice with a very tiny drink poured over it-poor value at 9$. Bring back the old martini menu please! They were great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Good Meal Was Had By AllWe all had a really nice lunch after our morning visit to the Basketball Hall of Fame. It was as good as all the other Max Restaurants that we have been to before, and if we are in Springfield, we won't hesitate to eat there again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMStuck in SpringfieldHad a great great meal and the service was really fantastic!

The Lobster Gnocchi was amazing, and the V-1 Vanilla Love Cheescake martini is a must try!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMax'sMy boyfriend and I went out for our 2 yr anniversary to Max's. We received great service, our waitress was right there if we needed her and everything came out in a timely manner. The food was average. I wasn't wowed.
Overall it was a pleasant time, I wouldn't say the food was worth the price. We have better luck with steak at Texas Roadhouse than any other restaurant we've been too.
But the outdoor seating looks fun for groups going out for drinks? It was too chilly for us to sit out there. They had nice couches and lounge areas5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe wanted some place different & gave Max's a try. The food was a little fancier than I prefer (with sauces etc). But the night was very tasty with the sauces on the side. We are both on a diet & split the main entre with extra side vegies. The portion sizes were good. The wait staff was attentive but didn't hover. We went mid week and were seated right at our reserved time. I would definitely return here again.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, friendly waitstaffDinners of Hilda's meatloaf, the swordfish special, and the lobster gnocchi were delicious! The waitstaff were more than pleasant and friendly. Everyone smiled and seemed to really enjoy working there. Dinner was unrushed and enjoyed at a leisurely rate even though the restaurant was full. We didn't have to wait long for our meals and they were as pleasing to our sight as they were to our taste buds . A lovely evening!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere and serviceThe atmosphere and service was tops! You did it again!! I can see that the hostesses and waitresses are usually pretty young women as they do help in attracting the right crowd.
Who can resist a pretty face? That's clever propaganda on your part.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWife and I both had the filetWife and I both had the filet mignon. I had crab cake and sauce on my filet over garlic mashed potatoes with asparagus. Both of us found the meal to be fantastic. For desert, we split the german chocolate bread pudding. That was terrible, dry and hard as a brick. Each of us could handle only 1 bite. After dinner coffee was very good and I had a couple of glasses of pinot noir with my meal which was also very good. Overall, great for dinner but I'll do desert somewhere else next time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOver the years the Max groupOver the years the Max group has served hundreds of thousands of fine meals. While we prefer several of the other branches, the Springfield outpost is a real asset to the local dining scene and consistently produces pleasing meals. In the summer, there is a welcome opportunity to dine outside.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dinner and service.Excellent dinner and service.

We were very pleased with the additions to their regular menu and had a great dining experience.

The prime rib complete dinner special was a great deal!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great exceptEverything was great except to people to close together. Can hear everyone around conversations because you need to speak so loud to be heard.
Bar tender very friendly and knowledgeable. Waiter was very good and very helpful in helping us decide what to order. I would not recommend the prime rib as there was more fat then meet and not worth the price.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our 23rd anniversary.We celebrated our 23rd anniversary. I had pre-ordered flowers to be delivered to the restaurant. I spoke with the reservation desk and I arranged what time they were to be brought out as well as pre-ordered a couple of appetizers. I even requested a certain booth. Everything went off without a hitch. The staff even gave us a signed anniversary card from everyone. Very friendly server and hostess desk.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCook up some romanceMy boyfriend and I wanted to try out a new place for dinner. One of my co-workers recommended that I go here so I made reservations for Friday the 15th. The atmosphere was quiet yet moderate. It was not too noisy. It was a very romantic setting. Our waitress was extremely nice! I had the Pan-Pressed Murray’s Chicken and he had Steak Au Poivre which was in a Brandy peppercorn sauce. His steak was a bit spicy because of the peppercorn but he said he enjoyed it very much. My chicken was slow roasted and very tender. It came with Brussels sprouts, local Honeycrisp apple, dried cranberry and bourbon apple cider jus. It was lovely. I would recommend Max's Tavern to anyone looking for a delicious romantic meal.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
