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.

    I’ll start with the positives. We had a 745 reservation and we were seated by 800. Our waitress was very friendly. Now the negatives. Our dinner was not served until 2 hours later. I had commented to the front desk but nothing was done. Our waitress gave the wrong info on a dish and therefore my friend could not eat it. This was a horrible experience.

    We have frequented this restaurant whenever we attend events downtown. I love most of the food but I will say last night my husband steak was almost an edible. It was very tough. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere overall but it is extremely loud and you cannot hear your party across the table. Other than that we really love the food, the service is always impeccable. I will definitely return when I’m in the area but would not make a special trip for this restaurant.

    Unfortunately had a bad experience with clients. Service was extremely slow, the kitchen missed our ticket... in the end we spent almost 2 hours for dinner when the restaurant was less than half full for a table of 5. My ribs were decent, however clients who had steak and fish all said it was very bland and unseasoned. It was bad enough that one actually used the fried okra sauce on his steak. Good points: The Okra was very good. Cooked nicely and quite tasty. It's also a nice inside ambience and smells really great from the wood. Overall though it's a hard pass for any future visits unfortunately.

    Went before a concert, Open Table allowed us to reserve before 4pm however they will not open the doors til 4pm. 10-15 of us stood outside in the rain waiting for them to let us in. Otherwise it was a fantastic experience and Kobe was a fantastic waiter! Cowboy steak was incredible.

    My family thought the food was ok for the most part. My grouper had good taste but was dry, and my margarita was watered down with way too much ice. Service, and the atmosphere were great though. Our server was great. Overall it was a good experience.

    Food is good, beer selection is Ok. Service was pleasant but a bit slow, even though the place was not crowded. Ambience is poor… the place needs a interior decorator and need to work on lighting!

    Service was very slow. Food was fantastic! Had the pizza and grouper. Loved it. House beer was just ok. We were sitting by the back door. Many of the staff were aware and were graceful going through the door. However, some did not care and were slamming the door as they went through. Created disruption in our meal.

    Nice enough. They were out of multiple items that we asked for and the food that did arrive was nothing special. Tomatoes in the salad were slimy. The grouper and mashed potatoes were solid. And my son's chicken fingers were definitely the highlight. I could see how this would be a fun place during the week when busier to hang with friends, but probably wouldn't choose just for my family next time.

    Our server was not even adequate. Didn't get drinks and/or appetizer for about 45 minutes. Dinner showed up tasted super dry and was not edible. The MANAGEMENT TEAM was amazing!! They were working harder than most of the servers. They could run the place without any more servers. I would not go back unless they served me directly. They made a terrible situation tolerable. I think the place needs an over haul and training.

    Great food and super friendly service, they are short staffed (at least it seems that way to me). We are there twice this week and the manager always said hello. I like the Max Black beer, salads are great as is the wood fired pizza. We will be back.

    The food was very good however, the service was a little slow. Drinks were ordered and it took way too long to appear. The second round of drinks never made it to the table. Desert was ordered but never received. It was busy but not packed so I don't know what the problem was.

    It is a shadow of its former self, truly disappointing. From the poor service from the kitchen to the poor food quality, this place should either be sold off to a restauranteur who cares or just shuttered, IMHO. SAD SAD SAD.

    Ate there 2 nights in a row. First night was great food and service. Second night the service was spotty and part of my order was left off. The second night was also packed and extremely noisy. Had to shout to be heard. Nonetheless I would still go back.

    Our server RED was super. This is a fun spot with good food and wonderful service. It's an older repurposed building with brick walls so the noise level is high. But, it's fun and the menu is varied. It was impossible to find a steak that was small. :)

    Max Lagers has been our go to restaurant when visiting Atlanta for years, but this was our first time back in several years and it was a disappointment. My son’s chicken was undercooked and he didn’t mention it until he had eaten quite a bit. He just complained that it tasted weird. Thank goodness he didn’t get sick. The rest of our food was good, but not as great as past visits.

    We had a great dinner here! This was the first time I had a steak and didn’t need steak sauce! We are not big drinkers, so when we ordered a few samples of beer, our server not only gave us recommendations based on other beers we told him we liked, but also gave us a glass of a new beer that they had just tapped completely free! He was also attentive to our autistic son’s needs as well. Definitely will be going back next time we visit!

    The food came very late and I ordered the fried chicken which was still raw in the middle . Because the food was so late arriving we were in too much of a hurry for me to send it back to get it cooked all the way through. I what I could and left the rest.
