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.

Awesome place! However, my husband and I were in Atlanta last year and ate at Max Lagers for the first time. He had the ribs and ever since he had them he’s been recommending anyone’s that goes to Atlanta to go try them. We were just in town again for the SEC championship and he had the ribs and they were cold!!! Huge let down!!

I had a wonderful experience. My son and I had the Southern Fried Chicken and a Pizza along with a couple local beers. All was very good. Service was a bit slow but we were in no hurry. I would definitely recommend the great establishment. Can't wait to go back.

Rib eye quality was substandard for what it cost. Fish and chips came out raw. Wouldn’t expect a frozen breaded fish for the price.

Upon arrival we were promptly seated and given silverware however we sat in our booth for over 15 minutes and no one ever came to take our drink or food orders. We walked out without so much as an acknowledgement from the staff. Highly disappointed.

This has always been a good restaurant and our facelifts place to go when in Atlanta for Georgia Tech Football. When our food came out, they got my wife’s order wrong, not even close to the dish she orders. Hate to wait 30 minutes for the correct meal. My pizza was completely black on the bottom of the crust and was nothing special. It was a disappointing night for us as my son and I ate while my wife waited for her meal (or let our food get cold). Talked to the manager and he comped her meal. For the price, not a good experience. Will find a new favorite restaurant. Staff seemed to a avoid us after the mistake occurred.

Stopped for a beer while walking in the neighborhood and were impressed by the beer and the menu. We had dinner later that day and were not disappointed. Appetizers were great. The wood grilling in our mains was perfect as was the seasoning. We had the fried cheesecake for dessert and were not disappointed.

Went on a very busy night and although our waiter said the kitchen was a bit slow our salads arrived promptly and entrees followed.

It was the perfect stop after a sporting event and an easy walk back to Midtown.

In the past I've had good experiences here. We have stopped in here after the DragonCon parade for years. This past Saturday, while the service was slow - given the rush of that day, we expected it. What was disappointing was some of the portion sizes. My friend's chicken fingers came with 3 very small pieces of chicken and the fries were all the crunchy ends, and my $16 salad was served on a plate I would have expected an appetizer on.

Everything was just as we needed to make our Gameday fun!! Food excellent, service excellent, people watching excellent (dragon con), seat prefect and beer selection nice. One of our friends lost her purse while in there, but someone turned it in and the staff put it in a safe, until we got there. Thank you!

The wood-fire grill aspect of Max Lager’s didn’t disapppoint. My wife and I loved our pizzas (BBQ Chicken and Mediterranean) and we had great service. The place is loud, but don’t let that stop you.

Dirty bathroom, extremely loud, poor service including having to ask for set ups so we could eat, cold food, not bringing sides that were ordered, dirty dishes and delivering a child's meal 5 minutes AFTER all of the adults had been served. Our waitress never checked on us except to ask if we wanted more booze. Very disappointed and won't be returning!

Reunion dinner for 3 friends. Great table (against a wall) but the noise was so, so loud (high ceilings, full house on a weeknight) that we couldn't hear each other. Server was great but food, so-so. Would never order the fried fish and chips again, gave me heartburn overnight. My guests said their food was "good", not a word I want to hear as a host. restrooms are upstairs, for a place this big with a major bar service, its inconvenient. Self parking is paid (into a machine) in the back of the restaurant.
