It was my Anniversary and my wife and I had a wonderful time, the atmosphere was great and the food was terrific! Being our first time at your establishment the waiter made us feel right at home, much kudos.

I love steak in high end restaurants. Max's fillet was wonderful! So much so that I couldn't stop eating. Even after it was clear I was full. I highly recommend Max's.

Will go back
Hot rolls were delicious
Steak au pouivre was cooked perfectly and so very good.
Will go back for this and the crispy onion straws.
We will get those for an appetizer next time.
The batter was light and had a kick of spice - yum!
Max a Penne was ok Nothing special here but nothing had either
Apricot cream puff was ok. A little more tart than I normally like for a dessert
The whipped cream on the side was exceptional - I'd order a bowl of that if I could
Servers were all very pleasant and we felt comfortable
We will definitely go back!

Great vibe, food was terrific.
Great vibe, food was terrific. Staff helpful, prompt in beverage and food delivery. Some of the appetizers a little pricey for the amount you get. Would splurge and come here again.

Best Dining Experience
Both my wife and I had not been to Max's before the Fourth of July. We were pleasantly greeted on entering and then a great dining experience followed. Appetizers set the stage and the steak was the main event. From start to finish, this was the best dining experience we had in years. After dinner the outdoor tables and couches culminated a great evening. Then we returned inside for a coffee. All in all, we were duly impressed and grateful for the experience.

Party of 6
Everything went very well. The service, the presentation of food and the ambiance was great.

While not my absolute favorite of the Max Group, Max's Tavern is my go-to for a non-stuffy yet high end restaurant for lunch, brunch or dinner. Service is generally spot-on, the menu has some really nice offerings, and the staff is generally professional and accommodating.

Max's is a favorite lunch
Max's is a favorite lunch spot for me and my friends. Good food and good service. Only complaint was the rolls are dry and uninteresting. Bring back the ones you used to have. Our waitress brought another basket, warmed, but they were not really any different- except warmed. Otherwise our experiences are always top-notch.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was outstanding and the food was great. A bit expensive, so good for special occasions. It was very noisy, which interfered with it being a relaxing atmosphere - hard to hear everyone at a table of 5

Dinner was good and service
Dinner was good and service was adequate. Waited a bit each time for a drink. Had the lobster special and the lobster could have been a bit hotter. Overall, still very good.

Great Food and comfortable great
The food was excellent - in three days we had two lunches and two dinners - ended up cancelling our reservations other places.
The food was excellent and the atmosphere was comfortable. great bar and wine list. Great for kids with adult like tastes.
Friendly staff that noticed their customers and took care of them.
Will definitely go back!
Excellent Tuna Tacos and Blackened Swordfish

Dinner with sons
Max's at The Basketball Hall of Fame has been my favorite restaurant for a few years and we have celebrated many memorable occasions there. Their shrimp cocktail was not disappointing. Loved the atlantic salmon. Preferred it over the Alaskan salmon. Our waiter was very attentive and I was also able to redeem Max Points and use a $25 certificate that we were given on our dinner there on Father's Day.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great stress relief
Spouse and I stopped in to Max's to escape cooking and utilize his Fathers' Day entree coupon. Waitress Alexandra was friendly and attentive. Food was as usual consistently delicious-simply grilled salmon and prime rib for my husband. Dessert was SPECTACULAR-apricot cream puff consisted of a profiterole-like pastry puff filled with apricot cream that was surprisingly (and scrumptiously) tart with a small dollop of sweetened whipped cream to balance it-plenty large enough for two to share. Thanks Max's!

Great Location and Great Food
We went for a romantic night out and had a great bottle of wine and the pan seared chicken was really good! It had lots of flavor and was colorful! The bar area was packed on a Thursday night and due to location I am sure it is always like that, so if you want quiet this isn't the place but it definitely was a neat place and it's very conveniently located at the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Upper scale burgers and entrées
Located at Basketball Hall of Fame. Nice change from typical fast food fare. Full liquor and wine permit, al fresco dining available. Part of the Max restaurant organization (all very good).

Top Notch Destination
Max's Tavern did not disappoint. Both food and service were great. Everyone made me feel special and the meal was an excellent experience. Will definitely be going back.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service
This was our first visit to Max's Tavern, but we've been to many of the other Max Restaurant Group places.
Our server, John, was extremely attentive and very helpful. Love the tavern-ish atmosphere inside with lots of dark wood and dim lights. My only complaint - and it's not the restaurant's fault - is the large party sitting right next to us that had several loud kids/babies which made it difficult to hear everyone at our table for a while, but luckily they left before we started our meal. And by then, the place was packed but it was still easier to hear everyone than with screaming kids next to you!
The food was delicious. I had the French Dip, which was cooked to perfection, served with some thick steak fries. Yum! Give it a try.

Quite the Experience
The meal was amazing and the service was over the top to make it an awesome meal

Blackout at Max's Tavern
While dining with friends recently, as our delicious meal was winding down, the restaurant was hit by a blackout due to a utility accident in town. Ashley our waitress and all the staff kept their cool and were cooking, serving, and presenting bills in the dark. Kudos to the entire professional, unflappable, courteous staff for sharing an unusual yet fun experience with us!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Prime Rib
My wife ordered the smaller prime rib and it was very large. It was one of the best if not the best prime rib we have ever had. We started with crab cakes and they were very good. I would certainly return and recommend it to everyone.

Max's was wonderful as usual!!!
Max's was wonderful as usual!!! Great meal every time. Thanks.

I tried to make a reservation online but the Max's website was acting strange and giving me a hard time as well....so I called and made a reservation for three on Saturday, August 24th. When I was checking in, I was told that my name was not shown in their computer! In spite of this scenario, I was able to get a table. The food was excellent along with our waitress, Chantelle, who was just great and very patient with us three deaf/hard of hearing men! Max's Tavern is one of our favorite places to eat and try to come several times a year. Keep up your good work and reputation.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Melts in your mouth
The filet mignon was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Max's Tavern has it all-ambiance, delicious food, tasty drinks, and great service!

You can always can count on Max's Tavern for good food, a nice atmosphere and professional waitstaff.

Best pick in Springfield to impress
When any Foodie friend with high expectations ask me to pick a restaurant, Max's Tavern is my go-to choice. The service is good, the food is always great. The atmosphere is upscale and comfortable. The only downside is the parking can be a bit tough on busy nights and the location means you can sometimes get some unpleasant smells outside.

Business dinner on Tuesday.
Business dinner on Tuesday. Food was great, wine was great.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite places for steaks. Doesn't offer enough variety in vegetable selection.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic food and great service! Our waitress, Meghan, was extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the menu selections. The Salmon entrée was delicious!!! From appetizers to dessert, we were all thrilled with our meals. Save room for dessert....cheesecake and donuts w/ caramel sauce are a MUST!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Calamari was great, steak a la max was fantastic, vinagrette under arugula and steak was amazing. Cheesecake was good but I was too full to really enjoy it. Bottle of wine was good and server was quick to keep the glasses full. I was disappointed at the extreme casual attire worn by other diners that night as I see the restaurant as more fancy that they did apparently (not max's fault). First time going here with the wife and we will definitely go there for special occasions going forward.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service at Max's Tavern is excellent. The Hostess was friendly when we arrived. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter was outstanding. The restaurant was very busy, but our water glasses were never empty and our empty plates were cleared from our table immediately. Our appetizers,salads and meals were delicious. Dessert is a must. We ordered the apple cider donuts and chocolate cake. We were not. disappointed. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just want an incredible meal with excellent service then Max's Tavern is the place for you.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I recommend the squid ink pasta, pressed farm chicken, crab cakes and salads. Their desserts are disappointing especially for $8, but the entrees are very good. The service is always wonderful. I eat here at least once every eight weeks. I always return.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food for a great price
Service was outstanding. From the hostess to our server, everyone was friendly. Our server, Matt, was extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu and the wine list. Made an excellent wine choice based on what we were looking for. Not only does the menu have great choices, so were the specials. Highly recommend anything on this menu
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and the service was wonderful, quick without being rushed, the food cooked perfectly and tasted great. I enjoyed the Ny strip steak with broccoli rabe, preceded by a Caesar salad. The steak was cooked how I requested and was very tender. My wife had the filet with Macaroni and cheese that was outstanding. For drinks our favorite was the "Maple cookie".
A great dinning experience that I highly recommend.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent and just as ordered. Wait staff was nice however they used to be a little more friendly and better educated about the menu and wine list. But overall it was a very nice dining experience.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoy this restaurant for many reasons though it is the steak that is our favorite (dessert too), Great wine list and craft beers though light in the vegetable offerings. The only complaint we have is of late the server never brings the bread without prompting, otherwise a great experience.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yet to have a bad dinner at Max's Tavern - While the food was very, very good... expanding the menu would be a plus. We always seem to end up with the same selection due to the limited menu. The service which is usually very good was average this time. Had to wait longer than necessary for a waitress to come take our drink order. All in all a dinner @ Max's is always enjoyable.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful dinner with friends and can't wait to go back. 2 of us had the rainbow trout which was fresh and delicious. The others had steak which was cooked perfectly and a scallop special which earned raves. The service was great and the atmosphere warm and cozy.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Our waiter did a great job
Our waiter did a great job on explaining a dish that I was not familiar with and was attentive, but not overbearing during our meal.

Nice dining experience
Generous portions, friendly service and nice ambience. Would definitely return.

I love this Max restaurant and especially the red booths in the center of the restaurant. Service was impeccable and my friend and I visited and dined for 3 1'/2 hours. It was a great evening and always a treat to go there.

Dinner at Max's
Any meal at Max's is a Grand Occasion. From the Bartenders to the Table Staff to the Kitchen this restaurant never ever fails to provide an outstanding mealtime event. In this day and age mealtime disappointments are a fairly common occurrence but not here. At Max's I have always walked away with a smile on my face and wonderful memories of a perfect evening. The Bar is active and warm. Drinks are done right and generous. Dining room is very pleasant with a moderate noise level (people talking over their meals). Table staff cant do enough for you and insure that you will be completely satisfied. Both Sea Food and Beef perfectly prepared are among their many offerings I think you will echo my reaction to this fine New England restaurant.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We all had the Gorgonzola garlic bread which is amazing, and then we all had the fillet. My wife's was a little rare for her, so she sent it back and it was back in 2 minutes and was cooked perfectly for her. Everything was great, the service was flawless and Dessert was also delicious, we tried the cheesecake and chocolate layer cake. No complaints here, this restaurant always delivers a great experience.

As usuual the Max Restaurant
As usuual the Max Restaurant Group has it down. Great service. Presentation was great. Surprised us with a desert plate recognizing our anniversary.

Food was excellent. Service
Food was excellent. Service was great. Our server was helpful but not overwhelming. The only complaint was the waiting area had no chairs and you were exposed to the outside door opening frequently. On a cold night this was a bit annoying. The bar was too crowded to find a place to stand and wait.

Everything was exceptional as always, but food and service were even better this time.
