Well……… when we saw this restaurant in the strip we thought we made a mistake. However, we decided to go in and give it a try. The place is smaller inside but well decorated. There’s a bar area and seating to the left and in the back. All of the staff were marvelous. The food was excellent. We all had steaks and they were cooked to perfection. The sides were good and very large portions as I had some to share!

Food and service was excellent, would have been great to have a wine list by the glass and craft cocktails but that is simply my preference

Service was terrific and so were the drinks. Clam appetizer is best in ROC.
Sadly the bone in tenderloin $teak was stringy and dry. Normally they have the best meat. I was disappointed just got a bad piece. No two cows are alike so what can you do?
Still one of my fav places to go.

Food was fantastic, steaks were perfectly cook, service was average, no wine menu, surely it’s a place you should go at least once but I don’t think I would go back.

Non-descript exterior. Nicely appointed interior.
You could actually talk, and be heard, at the bar and the table. Quite refreshing.
Service was a combo-platter of professional/friendly/knowledgeable.
Buss service very discreet and friendly.
Entrée was excellent.
Diners were left alone as necessary, and were doted on if needed.
Summary? An excellent Rochester fine dining experience.

Outstanding food with excellent service. The KC stripe was one of the best I’ve had locally. Only real issue is the price point being very high, but you do get what you pay for!

We had dinner at Max’s Chop House for the first time in July. The food and service was excellent! It’s a small place so it was a bit difficult to carry on a conversation with the noise level. It is a pricey restaurant so keep that in mind. Overall it was a nice experience but a bit overpriced.

Birthday celebration for 5 …steaks, all types, still the best flavor in town.
Sides and salads very good. Coffee too
Some drinks better than others. ( maybe melting ice being used for mixing cocktail drinks may be diluting some.)
Great time. Easy to recommend
Will be back and oftenp

We had a quiet table near the back of the restaurant. The service was attentive. I enjoyed the beet salad and lamb chops; while my wife enjoyed the kale salad special and the chicken. All the dishes were excellent. Our only minor complaint was that the air conditioning was a bit too cold (the thermostat near our table was set for 69).

SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT! FOOD WAS AMAZING. The restaurant is a little underwhelming at first, tucked into a little strip plaza, but the food was prepared in a reasonable time considering how busy it was. Had a medium ny strip, COOKED PERFECTLY, with Mac & cheese and mashed. Both delicious. Also the free range chicken was excellent. For desert we had creme brulee(wow) and Cinnabon cheesecake. The cheesecake was so amazing we had to get another slice to go!! Price was reasonable. We will definitely be back again. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful dinner.

The food was great; the service sucked-to include bringing my steak with the wrong sauce. Our server was more interested in talking to her friends, than ensuring guests' needs were being attended to. The dessert was not fresh and had been refrigerated too long.
