Although it has been a while since I have been to Max’s Grille, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There was a number of new dishes on the menu along with some well-remembered favorites. The food and service were both excellent. I will make sure that I come back soon.

My friend was seated outdoors when I arrived. Our server immediately brought over crackers and hummus and took our orders. We both ordered a half of a sandwich and a side salad. this is the second time I have ordered a sandwich, and not a salad, at Max's. The chicken salad had large chunks of chicken and was a bit stringy and tough. It appeared the chicken was torn, not cut. It was okay, but not great. I think I will stick with salads from now on! My friend's sandwich was just okay, too. I have eaten a Max's many times, so this meal will not stop me from going back. I have enjoyed many other meals here! The service was excellent!!! The server was friendly and very pleasant!

The food was awful! We went the day after Thanksgiving. The special was Turkey. My daughter ordered a ceasar salad with Turkey. The turkey had stuffing on the sides from the day before!! It was horrible! I ordered a goat cheese salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was so dry it was inedible. The only tasty part was the goat cheese! I will not return. On a positive note, the service was good and so was the location.

Did not like that they no longer offer the breadsticks and hummus unless requested. I do get that it can be a waste if not eaten but it should be offered.

Second time there to meet a long time friend. The restaurant has a casual atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor seating. We all ordered salads which were well prepared. The service was excellent. We weren’t rushed and we had a very enjoyable lunch.

I always try to find restaurants serving fresh fish and I am frequently disappointed, but I ordered the swordfish and it was perfect: Clearly very fresh, not frozen, cooked medium as I requested and nicely grilled with a great flavor. I can honestly say that this is exceptional for Boca Raton, where much of the fish is previously frozen, processed or just poorly handled by local restaurants. A good, fresh piece of fish does not need an almond crust or panko coating or a heavy sauce - these are often used to cover up poor quality fish. On this night at Max's I was very pleased with the swordfish. Very pleased.

When we arrived we asked the waiter for 2 separate checks...never happened! I ordered Max’s chopped salad(delicious) with an add-on of grilled shrimp...over cooked and microscopic! My friend ordered salad over grilled chicken (leather-like and inedible). The servers, though pleasant, had to be reminded to bring the requested black napkins and artificial sweeteners. We longed for the good old days when Max’s Grille was top notch!

It’s only good for the scene. We waited 20mins for our drink order to be taken. We even thought of just walking away and going to Villagio next door. Entrees before the apps seems like an Applbees mistake and there’s no way our food was remade. Our m entrees came out luke warm service was blah. I’m fine with mediocre service for a good scene but prices should reflect that.

Food was good, the ambiance is okay. We’re been there few times and now and everyone we go there the place doesn’t feel very cozy for some reason, maybe it’s the staff trying to rush you trough dinner to free the table for the next people. Staff is not very friendly, like little robots running around not trying to be friendly. Dinner for two $180 I would expect for the manager to come around and ask about our experience.

I used to go to Max's Grille frequently, and then their food became unimpressive (to say the least). I decided to try it again and was pleasantly surprised! It was good for dinner on all counts, and had some new menu options. The food was pretty highly seasoned. My date had a Thai Salad and found it too spicy for his taste. My Steak Roja was delicious, but then, I like spicy.
You can't beat it for convenience if you're going to Boca Festival or any event at the Amphitheater. I will return there.

A few things...We ordered a nice bottle of wine ($115) and the waiter did not pour ANY of our glasses for us, which we receive this service in any other place at this level. Also, the filet mignon was ordered rare plus and came out charred, pretty much burnt. Other than that, overall experience was good.

Max's lived up to its longstanding reputation as one of Boca's favorite restaurants. Because we went just after 5 to take advantage of their sunset special, the meal was a great deal, and the almost empty restaurant was very quiet. We'll be back soon!
