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.

Very exceptional food the wait staff was not overly busy, but service took a while. That was all right, however, as we were not in a hurry. I hate downtown & driving downtown, but this place was worth the effort. The burgers were especially amazing.

Excellent surprise! Server was polite friendly, courteous, helpful. Was there with a couple of coworkers, for employee appreciation day. The food was tasty, lots of it! Steaks were melt in your mouth, cooked exactly as ordered and expected. First time at this hidden gem, but will definitely be back in the future!

It was probably us, as we like Max Lagers and dine here every time we come to Downtown ATL. Tonight we arrived just plain old popped from work and not really in a dining mode. My husband’s burger was as good as always and he has decided the beef burger is a better choice for him as apposed to bison as the beef is much juicer. The burger was cooked exactly as ordered, medium rare. My quesadilla was just so so tonight. Actually it arrived barely warm and as we did not have follow up service, I just coped with it.

Always dependable microbrewery with friendly service and great beer choices and good food. I prefer their entrees and sandwiches to their pizza, but I always enjoy this place. I have taken a number of group events here through the years, and it never disappoints. When the weather is nice, there's also a very private back patio that is wonderful. Highly recommended.

I’ll start with a positive note...the food was delicious!! However, the service was horrible!! Once seated it took 15 plus minutes to get a server and only because my husband went check on it. Our kid’s food came out and we still had no silverware after asking numerous times. We had to borrow silverware from a neighboring table. We finally got silverware after asking 3 plus times and getting up to go ask a busboy (this was now 45 minutes into being seated). But most importantly when I spoke to the manager regarding this issue they did nothing. Disappointed.

Terrible service, took over 35 minutes to get a beer... in a brewery! We had been sat for 15 minutes before the bus boy got us our waters, when I asked him to also get us a server, he just rolled his eyes as if I was completely inconveniencing him. It still took 10 more minutes for a server to show up to the table...

The food was just bad. Steaks were overcooked, dry and tasteless. Sides were cold. Some sides we ordered never even showed up. Our server disappeared after our food showed up. It was VERY loud in there. Two people ordered the same beer, but received 2 different beers. I would not go back nor could I ever recommend.

The restaurant itself is great. Beer was good. Food options were good but some of the execution was lacking.

We visited during the Marathon Olympic trials, so it was a busy weekend. We booked through Open Table and were seated at our reservation time. Our waiter made some recommendations for dinner. Three people in our party ordered the burger, which was just ok, however the hand cut fries were delicious. I ordered the salmon which had great flavor. The IMOS is a tasty stout if you’re a dark beer fan.

The bar tender had a personality of a door non. She was borderline rude was asked questions for something off menu. The waitress was average, asked the same question 3 times. Food was good and the beer options are great!

While I have yet to visit this brewery for it's beer selections, I can tell you the food is enough to keep me coming back for more! I have never left disappointed. One of my favorite dishes is the fried chicken breast, collard greens (believe it or not, they nail the collards), with mashed potatoes.
