Max Lager's Wood-Fired Grill & Brewery
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.
Great service. Great food. Great drinks. Great bear. This is the first time I’ve went somewhere and ordered a steak that came out perfect the first time! Wish the menu was slightly bigger but for the type of restaurant it is I completely understand it. Seeing the brewery parts was pretty cool too. Wish there was a bathroom downstairs because after a few the stairs are a task. But overall I have nothing negative to say. Loved it and I will return.
Service, food and ambience were subpar. The place was not crowded, so there wasn't any reason for the service to as subpar as it was.
I absolutely love this place. It’s gone one our list for places to eat when we are hungry. Which means a lot.
The steak was cooked so well and the meal was lovely!!!
Nice place and decent food but the service is pretty bad. Might give it another try.
I was pleasantly surprised. I would HIGHLY recommend the Rosemary Grilled Shrimp and the Mussels, and I look forward to having the delicious greek salad again.
Very slow service. We order a bottle of wine - it never came. We ordered two salads - they never came. We ordered another cocktail - it never came. My pork chop was over cooked and dry. Never again.
I’m a Business traveler and would rank my experience there one of the worst dining experience I have ever had.
Anytime a waiter can spill wine, and water two different times it’s not a fluke as all (4) of us ended up with wet laps. One spill was wine, the other water glasses.
Never received any acknowledgement outside of additional napkins and a couple wet towels our waiter brought to the table.
My customers blazer(coat) has a stain from the wine and will likely remain after dry cleaning.
I did not expect a concession in our meal cost, or would have accepted one! It would have been nice to have a manager stop in to say “sorry” what can we do for you...
The five of us enjoyed wine, nice views and the food was terrific. The ones who ordered Bison burgers (Max) were treated to excellence. We will return.
Service was very good and attentive. Great selection of beers. Food presentation was good. But an undercooked pork chop was disappointing and surprising.
Food was good. What was interesting is that we arrived right at 4pm (first customers) and were seated in a corner booth in the bar area.
We had a reservation, but highly doubt it was necessary in order to be seated. We both ordered a steak (sirloin and strip). The strip was tough and overcooked with very little to no seasoning, the sirloin was tough but cooked well, no seasoning. The broccoli served with our dishes was a combination of over and under cooked, the “whipped potatoes” were hand mashed and very dry. The fries were basic frozen french fries. The chocolate cake was good, but that’s a difficult thing to mess up. Overall, for the total cost of the meal (over $70) I was incredibly underwhelmed and disappointed. Won’t go back, wouldn’t recommend.
Ordered the Manhattan Steak med rare. Not only came out over cooked, but more fat than meat on the steak. It was really not edible and my fault for not sending back, but no plans to return.
Always a great time with great food!!
Loved the beer they brew onsite. The food was ok but nothing great. My pork chop was over cooked and tough.
Well, my expectations were not met. Our waiter was the most amazing part. I paid $5 for one very small scoop of vanilla ice cream that had freezer burn on it. I ordered the half rack of ribs and fries. I asked for no coleslaw but got it anyways, I’m allergic to a lot of stuff in it so I didn’t ask for it for a reason. The ribs were so spicy it was ridiculous. I love the type of fries they serve but I received a very small portion. My husband got a steak with whipped potatoes and broccoli. He enjoyed his steak, potatoes and 2 beers. The cheesy bread was very good, but we did expect more of it for $6. This was a $69 bill with a $11 tip, I really wish more of the bill would’ve went to the tip because the food was not worth it, but the service was. Not to mention I paid $12 to park behind the building because when I called to ask about the complimentary parking, the girls who answered the phone could not give me the directions to it. Will not be back sadly.
It was good. We enjoyed our evening. It was slightly overpriced but the food was excellent.
Very solid menu and an excellent beer menu. Geared towards comfort food, so very hearty. One of the best everyday restaurants in downtown Atlanta.
I go to Max Later because it is convenient to meet friends for lunch. However, I do not really care for their menu. They used to have a Chicken Caprese sandwich that I really enjoyed but they removed it from the menu. Since then, it's been difficult to find another entree that tastes half way decent.
Best restaurant experience we had the whole week of the conference. The service was exceptional, food was reasonably priced and very tasty, and we loved exploring all of the beers on the menu.
We are in Atl for a week for business every year. Max Lager is always on our list - usually twice! Great food, well priced, good service. It can get a little boisterous/noisy when it's packed, but that's part of the experience. We love Max Lager. Can't wait to go back.
We’ve been 2 other times which is why we went back again. This time the service was very poor and we just didn’t enjoy the food like we did the other times.
The restaurant has awesome service and food. The only complaint is it's extremely loud with the music and all of the TV's going. It's very hard to carry on a conversation. Otherwise, it's a great place.
I will definitely return!
We had a great dining experience! Our meals were wonderful and the dessert was delightful. Our server was awesome - she was very upbeat and attentive. We will have drinks and dine here again when we come back to town!
This is a favorite of ours every market trip. The Pork Chips and Salmon are outstanding. The fried cheesecake is the highlight. Scott was a great waiter.
We had a great dinner, food, and service
The salmon salad and salmon pesto were excellent. Great, knowledge staff. Going back
The atmosphere is welcoming and the high booths make it intimate. Food was fantastic... from brick oven pizza to the ribeyes.
One hour and 45 minutes to receive food after ordering, on a Tuesday evening. Everyone was very courteous, however the kitchen needs help. Also found temperature stick in salad.
Food was served cold!
Frank night I was with or just salad with croutons because she can’t have any gluten and her salad came with croutons we sent it back and asked that they please remake it instead of just taking the croutons all I did.But she got her nails later than the rest of us
Bathrooms were dirty
Always try to visit when we’re are in town. Quick and pleasant service. Good food and home brewed beer. BBQ ribs were well cooked and tasty as was the shrimp. However, don’t expect to have a quiet night out. Place is very energetic
Food was just okay and service was not great, with all of the options for great places to eat, I don’t think we will choose Max Lager’s the next time we visit Atlanta.
Had a great meal. Logan was very attentive without being obnoxious. My collards did come out room temperature but it was quickly fixed. No manager follow up visit which was disappointing. Overall good meal and fantastic service.
We had a horrible experience. We went there specifically for the pizza. When we placed our order, we were informed that anything needing the wood fired oven would take a full hour to be served. What???? This is a wood fired grill restaurant! How discouraging. The server came right out and told us not to order the pizza unless we want to wait a full hour! On a Saturday night, how can this place not be able to accommodate their guests??
We won’t be going back there ever again.
After a more than one hour wait after ordering, the food was disappointing, and small portion sizes. Many menu items were not available. Our party of 7 all left underwhelmed. Not recommended at all.
A good restaurant for a pizza, beer, salads, and sides. For the latter, good green beans and sautéed spinach! The hopsation beer was excellent. We did not have any meat, a main offering. Certainly would recommend this restaurant for families or for friends wanting to visit.
Although I always enjoy my food when I eat here, it takes an extremely long time for the food to come out. I wish the cooks were faster - the wait is a bit of a deterrent.
Food was cold. Sent it back, still came out lukewarm
It was a great spot for a work group holiday luncheon. The service was above average and the food was pretty good. Some of the work group members who ordered the Fish and Chips thought that it could have been better cooked; they expected the standard east coast light fluffy beer battered version that most are used to. I had a house salad and thought it had to much balsamic vinegarette and could not finish it. Overall Max is a perfect place for a workgroup luncheon and would recommend it to a friend.
