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 table received poor service at lunchtime today at Max Lager’s. We ordered and still had not received our food after a 45 minute wait. After flagging down our waitress, it took her another 10 minutes before a different waitress brought out our meal. We asked what caused the delay and we received two different responses. While an apology was rendered, there was no attempt to make amends for the fact that we waited almost an hour for our meal. Given the many nearby lunch options, I will think twice before coming back to Max Lager’s.

Service was horrible. Very slow. Drinks didn’t get refilled until we were almost finished eating. Ask server several times for more water. Not that busy when we were there so no excuse for not refilling drinks or being slow.

Great dinner. We arrived early and were seated immediately. Our server was very attentive and made sure that our brews never were empty. Food was excellent, my customer stated that the Max Burger was the best burger he had ever had.

Confirmed reservation that morning
When my client and I arrived at our reservation time they said we did not have one
I showed them my confirmation from Open Table
Didn’t matter I didn’t have one with them
Might be the last time I use Open Table
And I have a lot of friends and business clients that use Open Table
What is going on??

Good was great. Skimpy on pour for $9.00 glass of house chardonnay. Waitress started out great then seemed distracted. Very slow to bring requested beer. One in party ordered dessert. Took a long time to get that. Had long wait for checks and then wait as cards were processed. Very slow on drink refills. Waitress seemed more concerned with something going on elsewhere than waiting table.

Our server Kris, barely spoke to us. He approached our table, asked a question, and then walked off to the table behind us, just as we were answering. I've never been so blatantly and openly ignored by a server. His service was incredibly slow and he was barely visible to us. The food was lacking and didn't have anything to write home about. One of us ordered a medium well burger which showed up medium rare. Kris never returned to check on us so our colleague attempted to eat it half-heartedly before giving up.
At one point, another server walked by with dessert shortly after we finished dinner, and due to our obvious interest, stopped and showed us the fried cheesecake. Said it was "the best item on the menu". This piqued our interest and we couldn't wait to try it. However, Kris didn't return back to our table for another 30 minutes after this. When he did, we briskly walked by and asked "dessert?" But continued going and never stopped to take our order. Another 10 minutes later he returned and asked "what have you decided? The only thing I don't have tonight is the fried cheesecake. We are out of the tortillas." We couldn't believe it. This was the icing (or lack thereof) on the cake for us. We couldn't help but feel that his negligence left us defrauded of the infamous cheesecake. I understand this sounds dramatic and quite frankly the service was so terrible, it's comical. We all agree, none of us would ever return and would never recommend. Overall service for 2 apps, 1 drink, and 3 meals took over 90 minutes which I would argue is too long for a Monday night at 6:00pm.

We loved the atmosphere. Our waiter was friendly, patient and very accommodating. 3 out of 4 of us ordered the salmon and it was the best salmon I have ever had at any restaurant! I am usually a little disappointed when I get salmon at a restaurant because it is often dry or over salted. But not this time. I even took the leftovers home and had it for breakfast and it was still incredible. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Hostess was rude and in accommodating. Service was mediocre. Food was ok but between the unwelcoming hostess and the slamming door to the patio the overall experience was poor. Too many good restaurants in Atlanta to bother with a place like this one.

We were in Atlanta for a conference and needed a quality though not formal dinner that could accommodate 10 people. Max Lager's was the perfect spot for us! The atmosphere was lively and the vibe was very good. The food was fresh, the service attentive and the wine and beer list was good. My only (minor) complaint was that the bar closed at 10:30pm. We were told it would stay open later and were disappointed after a large group joined us. Overall, I recommend Max Lager's for a fun evening.

Went there on a busy Friday evening. Nice ambience, overwhelmed waiters, very mediocre food (basically pizza and fried stuff). Does not live up to reviews or ambition. Go there if you must have fried cheesecake. Otherwise...

We didn’t think about dinner until about 7pm on a Friday night. Everywhere we tried was booked. When Max Lager had openings we were nervous that it was because it wasn’t good, but we tried it anyway. It was fantastic. We were a party of 3 and all 3 of us enjoyed our entrees and drinks. We shared a piece of chocolate cake for dessert, which was huge and a perfect amount for sharing. Our server was friendly and accommodating. Prices were reasonable, especially for the large portions. We agreed that we would return.

Need Valet Parking: They say they have it, but you have to go to White Oaks Restaurant.
Not really at their place. Lot Parking it $12. Would not go back, as it was a $50 experience for $100.
