Parin, our server was excellent--attentive, friendly and efficient. New reservation for 11/30 at 6:30 pm we request her service at the table next to the fire pit.

We enjoyed the garlic white pizza and the salmon-shrimp burger. Both dishes were outstanding in taste and temperature.

I had the grilled fresh fish sandwich at lunch which was ok but I have had better. My boyfriend had the meatloaf which was a small portion covered in bbq sauce which was also ok. In summation the food was ok, our server was terrific and I think the cost was more costly than the food. Sorry not overwhelmed.

We requested an outside table. Our table was in the dark and we had to use flashlights to see the menu. Next time I will request a table where we can see others at our table while we eat.

Good food, good service. Excellent outdoor socially distant seating. One of the more pleasant safer bets during these very stressful times. I recommend this location but it is moderate not budget pricing , good value though.

Nice weather brings everyone out, parking was at a premium (on a Tuesday evening!) .... lots of outdoor seating, well-spaced tables, but no masks on any patrons .... this was our first time there and we’ll be back (not on a more crowded weekend night though) .... we both enjoyed our meals, entrees came out quickly, reasonably priced for a nice restaurant .... once a substitute server finally came over to us, she was friendly & attentive (thanks, Taryn!).

We went for at 1 p.m. on Sunday and they had a few special "brunch items" on the menu. The outdoor seating area is very nice. The food was okay. We ordered the tuna melt and the avocado egg/toast. I am glad it was a beautiful day and enjoyed the company because the service was really poor. After waiting for over an hour with no food and no word from our waitress, we flagged her down to be told they ran out of English muffins for the tuna melt and the chef ran to Publix. I didn't care whether it was on an english muffin but I cared a lot that no one said a word to us. And why not just ask 45 minutes earlier if I'd like a different bread? Finally, 80 minutes after ordering we got our meals (which by the way wasn't served on an english muffin but rather whole wheat toast). Food was okay.
We also had to wave her down to ask for some water then for some splenda to go with the tea then for some salt and pepper. It was just awful service.

First time for us - We are always concerned about the restaurant compliance with social distancing, we were comfortable with the measures in place. Our party of 4 enjoyed not being rushed, allowed to take our time - there's good variety in the menu, creative items like - French Onion Soup dumplings as an app. Try them - along with the Brussel Sprouts!
Dinner was very good as we enjoyed Burgers, Pork Tenderloin, Swordfish & I believe it was a Korean Beef Bowl! Yummy desserts.

I have been going to Burt and Max from the day it opened in the Marketplace and have been a loyal customer over the years. Unfortunately, my last 2 dining experiences have proven to be disappointing. I thought the food was definitely not up to par. The crispy chicken was overcooked and dry. The meatloaf was smothered in a barbecue sauce and that was the only thing you could taste. I will give them one more chance and then I will cross them off my to go list. So sorry.

This was the first time since mid March that my husband and myself went out to dinner with another couple. Burt and Max is one of my favorite places to dine at.

This time I was dissatisfied with the evening. We sat outside, but the outside was very crowded and extremely noisy. I was quite disappointed in the evening and I have never been disappointed before. I believe in this pandemic time, there should still be fewer tables and further distancing of those tables. I might go again to eat but I will either go for a very late lunch or a very early or very late dinner when the crowd is fewer.

food was fine, even though the waiter got my meal wrong. What was served to me was my second choice so I didn't send it back. Mall setting so the ambiance was average. The waiter forgot to return my credit card when I paid for our meal and I had to ask for it back. Not good.

We were seated outside on a
windy, cloudy day.
Everyone in our party of four selected an item from the 12 for 12 menu.
Three meals were delivered. The fourth took longer. The food was not hot when we received it. By the time the fourth meal arrived the rest of the food was almost cold.
Our server was very good, we were socially distant from other tables, and the hostess brought us items not on the table, as requested, promptly.

So glad we gave Burt & Max another try! After a tough experience, the manager made it right so we went back. This time we had the seared mahi special and the root beer braised short ribs. They were both delicious! Looking forward to returning to try the chicken and waffles.

Service was not up to par. My husband ordered soup. Server brought entree and forgot soup. At end of meal we asked for container and bag to bring home food. Server brought container and bag. Bottom of bag was totally ripped. Bag looked as if it had been previously used. We asked for a new bag which server once again neglected to bring. We love this restaurant and have never experienced this kind of service before.

Burt s a perfect place for a quick bite, or a decent dinner, for gathering of friends, and even for a first date. On my two visits I enjoyed their crispy calamari & zucchini, a very large portion of truly crispy, tasty morsels easily serving two or three as an appetizer or even one person as a main dish. On my second visit I enjoyed one of the specials, namely a pasta Bolognese loaded with rich meaty sauce and easily plenty for two diners. My dining partner had the salmon shrimp burger, a menu regular which she reported as a very good sandwich. It was trimmed with lettuce, tomato etc. plus excellent, grease free sweet potato fries. The friendly server was efficient and pleasant. Will I return? A resounding YES! Popoo
