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.

    Our food came out incorrectly. Service was poor. Much too long of a wait for how busy the restaurant was. My wife and I were very disappointed in our experience.

    It is definitely a brewery it doesn’t seem like an upscale restaurant when you walk in, however it was wonderful. We were sat promptly when we arrived. Chris did an awesome job taking care of us. You could really tell he enjoyed what he was doing. I had an Old fashioned, wife had a margarita both were good. We then had the wings as an app and the filet and ribs for entrees, all were good. The filet was definitely in the top 5 of steaks I’ve ever had, make sure you have them leave the sauce on the side it doesn’t need it. The ribs were cooked well and the sauce was good. We will definitely be coming back anytime we are in Atlanta.

    The maître d’ had a severe attitude problem. The type of person that should not be in the service industry. He was not very pleasant, and gave us the impression that we were bothering him. That said, the waiter was very friendly and accommodating, yet we needed to flag him down in order to get service. The food was OK. Nothing really to write home about the place is very loud. Overall the place is nice, the food is OK. The service is good. It is very convenient if you’re staying downtown.

    Staff just seemed lost. The food was not at all what was reflected on the menu price. Honestly, it was a joke to pay $50 for a meal that looks like I easily could've made. They were out of all deserts for a bday. The restaurant was so cold, which I get because of how cold it was outside but still. Definitely don't recommend. Idk. Maybe the pizzas are good...

    Excellent food and super friendly service! Lemon basil shrimp appetizer was a great way to start. Large portion, maybe 10 nice sized shrimp and the sauce was buttery and delicious. The fried chicken was crispy and moist. The pepper jelly topping seeped into the greens and made a terrific flavor combination. The grouper was fresh, simply seasoned beautifully wood grilled. Too full for dessert but I would go back to try.

    First Timer! The greeter, server, and Soul Fashioned drink were outstanding! My friend absolutely raved on the salmon, as did I on the perfectly prepared ribeye! Although I loved the idea of the collards with chicken, they were just too spicy, and the whipped potatoes needed a little more flavor/butter. These are just my preferences :) Still a delicious meal and will be back for sure!!

    Please understand that reservations mean nothing at this restaurant. I made reservations here becasue we were in town for the Peach Bowl and knew that all restaurants would be busy. We arrived a few minutes ahead of our scheduled time just to be told that they had bad news but we would have an hour wait due to the football game crowd. We were told sorry but this is how reservations work at their restaurant. Well, every restaurant in the Atlanta downtown area had a 45 minute to an hour wait WITHOUT reservations. We did not stay since we could get in any restaurant in the area (of which there are many) with the less or the same wait time. Maybe the food is good there, but I suggest you not bother making a reservation if you want to go.

    Wanted pizza and that is why we picked this spot, however after we were seated they informed us because they were so busy they were not making pizza’s, however I could get fish, burgers even a steak, explain to me how we can do all those items, but not a pizza. Very disappointed that one of your main items you advertise and you shut it down for the night.

    Our server and team were amazing! Friendly, accommodating and energetic! The restaurant is beautiful and my guests were very comfortable. The food was good. We order lots of it! The dishes were gorgeous, but many items came out not-so-hot and salt and pepper was needed for a few of the dishes. Steaks were over-cooked, but still tasty! These issues were promptly corrected and overall we had a great experience. We will definitely return - SOON.

    Went for early dinner before concert. Was shift change so service was spotty. Server not very friendly. Food was relatively good. Meat was hot but veggies only warm. Not a beer drinker, but companion said beer wasn't very good. Had a funny smell. He's not a brewer but does keep kegged beer. Said it tasted like the lines weren't clean.

    It took a long time for the server to get to our table. He was very friendly and competent. We just didn't see him very often. One of the folks in my party ordered his steak medium rare and it came out well done. The server agreed and eventually a replacement steak was delivered to the table. I had high hopes but I'll be going elsewhere when I'm in the mood for a steak.

    The food wasn’t good at all. We had to send the wings back. It took 15 mins to get our drinks. I had to get up and ask the bartender. She then realized her ticket machine was unplugged. Not to mention we woke up with sore stomach’s.

    It was a slower Tuesday evening, made a reservation but certainly didn't need one. They had several nice beers on tap and a full bar too, Tried the pilsner, it was decent. I tried one of the wood fired pizzas...it was slightly better than decent. The barkeep was very friendly and helpful. My dining companion tried several of the beers and enjoyed them all. all in all a nice place to watch the game and grab some grub.
