The food was amazing. My friends and I had a lovely dinner. However, a bit disappointed it took awhile to seat us and then they were out of a few starter options we really wanted to try. Overall, it was delicious and the service was adequate.

You can't go wrong with Max Fish for fresh fish, oysters, and an upbeat atmosphere. They have a big selection of dishes (both main dishes and small plates) and have plenty of menu selections for carnivores (including great steaks). The 4-6 and after 9 pm happy hours are good deals, and they have an excellent wine list, plenty of quality wines by the glass, and very interesting cocktails which change with the season. It's a popular local spot, so get there early for the 4pm happy hour and important to book a table, particularly on the weekend. Their fish and chips are the best on the East Coast.

I took the love of my life to Max Fish tonight for his birthday. Reservations were at 5:30 and the table was ready for us the moment we walked in. The food was very, very good and the service was exceptional. Not long ago, I commented to Lou that I never see servers crumb down the table anymore, but everyone at Max Fish did. Our server, Michael, could not have been better. He read us, and what we wanted from our dining experience, perfectly, and was very personable. We never felt rushed but were also never neglected. He was there to take our orders, refill glasses, and clear finished plates with perfect timing. Michael also made great recommendations and we were both extremely satisfied with everything from the appetizers and soup/salad, to entrees to meals and desserts (mostly chosen from that evening’s specials). Last year’s birthday meal in West Hartford was such a disaster that despite living in West Hartford, we chose to drive out to Glastonbury to try Max Fish tonight. It was a great decision, and we can’t wait to come back!

Our waitress was very knowledgeable about wine and the menu items. She was great when we needed to settle the check quickly and was kind enough to split the bill for us. I would definitely return and tell my friends to check it out.

We were there in the early afternoon and had a great experience - quieter than in the evenings.
I am a vegetarian on a Paleo diet and there were no options. I managed to find a few apps to order - even the salads were not very heart healthy. The other 4 in my party found the food delicious. Many restaurants are now offering Paleo options - that would probably keep me from returning soon, although Max Fish is one of my very favorite restaurants. Staff and service was supurb!!

The waiter screwed up our table number, which caused our food to be delivered to other tables. Our appetizer sat on someone else’s table for a full 5 minutes before anyone came to collect it. It was then given to us without being redone.
When it came time to pay, we were given the wrong bill. The waiter finally gave our actual bill to us and then ran the previous bill (which was much more money than ours) instead. So we were charged twice. The other bill has still not been cleared from our card yet.
The food, as always, was very good. It’s a shame when an expensive meal is ruined by a waiter/waitress.

The special occasion didn't start out well as the heat wasn't working so while wearing our coats at our table, we were still cold. Luckily for us, Selena (our server), took immediate action and sent the Manager over to discuss our options. The manager (can't recall his name) took swift action by moving us into a small private room where we were warm and fed some wonderful food. Was everything perfect? Not quite, but the service was warm and attentive and because of that effort, we will definitely return.

We were pleased that after many purchases of gift certificates for our grown children we were finally offered a value ourselves. The $25.00 off one entree was the reason we took the time to visit. The food, wine, and service was outstanding and just as I remembered when I frequented the various Max locations with clients for business dinners. Over the years our children have enjoyed having the multiple locations and flexible timing afforded by Max.
Of note, only after purchasing we were advised that the J. Gilbert certificate recently that they are only valid for the months of January and February 2018.
We will certainly purchase Max certificates for our next Holiday.

I like Max Fish for the happy hour but you need to get there early - it gets crowded fast. The seafood is usually very good but I ordered the special of the evening Mahi Mahi, it was very tasty but the fish was overcooked. I also think their prices are a little high.

Restaurant was very busy but we were seated in a quieter section which was nice. Fried clam appetizers were delicious. My husband had a seafood risotto that was filled with large portion of all his favorite seafood. He especially like the grilled octopus! I had the lobster with butternut squash risotto which was plentiful and delicious. A most enjoyable Christmas date night!

We went for my husband’s birthday. We have been many times before and enjoy the food and atmosphere here. Our food was good, nothing to complain about bout service was rather slow and our server seemed irritated every time we asked for something. Definitely not the service we expect from a Max’s chain. We almost wished we went next door to Max Amore instead. Staff should be on their A game and helpful, not seem like they are doing US a favor to wait on us. Please work with staff to make our next experience a better one. Thanks !
