Max Fish Ratings and Reviews
Max Fish always delivers with fresh, delicious fish and seafood dishes served with creativity, flavor and style.
The wait staff and management are friendly, welcoming and accommodating.
I make an effort to have dinner at MaxFish at least once a month for over a year now, and I have always been delighted that I chose to have my dinner here!
Delicious meal with extras from the waiter. When we arrived, the waiter was very friendly and brought over a mini smoothie for us to try and then dropped off some little cinnamon dough bites. The food came out quickly and was delicious. My only complaint for the day were the bartenders at the Bloody Mary bar. They had zero personality and were not friendly at all.
Max Fish lives up the the reputation of the Max Group. Excellent menu choices that are prepared wonderfully, and plated to please the eye and palate alike. Seasonal add-ins and add-ons are welcome. Have never been critical of a Max Fish experience or of any Max experience. Excellent food group. Service also top notch and servers very knowledgeable.
I was expecting so much more.
I am speaking just for my meal of a lobster roll. I did not want the Cajun Remoulade so had it just buttered. Scant butter, flavorless lobster. I got tartar sauce which was overpowered with onions or shallots. And I love raw onions. French fries were hot and delicious.
Our table was a round one for 6, pushed so closely into the corner that 2 people always had to get out of their seats to let the 2 in the corner up for more Bloodys and to use the bathroom.
The physical atmosphere is attractive but rambling and circuitous. I thought it poorly designed and arranged. We were far the Bloody Bar.
We had a delightful waitress. Other staff did not smile - and I'm talking about the men in long aprons who appeared to be waiting to do something, like serve or bus. Those at the Bloody Mary Bar seemed to be unengaged - No acknowledgements, no smiles, no offers to advise. And the shrimp on offer with the drinks were awful. Overmarinated, overcooked, tasteless.
So the worst food offerings I had were seafood.
I have been to Max Burger and Max Oyster many times and love them. Their Glastonbury sibling not very much.
Food was excellent, however the service was terrible. It took 20 minutes for one beer to arrive, and upon requesting a refill of the house wine for 2 glasses, the server forgot and after 15 minutes we had to remind her. Our appetizers all appeared at once - oysters, smoked octopus, clams and soup. We sent the soup back, and felt extremely rushed. However, food was excellent - we just wished we could take our time. Upon receipt of the bill, we were still charged for the soup we sent back.
Overall disappointing due to the service.
We celebrated our son's getting his first job as a professional out of college here. Everyone's food was wonderful. I ordered the grilled lobster but it was tough. I got another order of it and it was better but still not to my liking. Nevertheless, I was taken care of, offered some shrimp cocktail, and didn't have to pay for that order. The management was caring and concerned as well as apologetic. I think it was just me and what I expected and prefer. I wouldn't fault them in the least. I'd still go back!
The fish dishes were superb. The lobster bisque out of this world. We were seated immediately and on time since we had a reservation. I liked all that.
I used Open table to make a reservation the day before. 6 hours before our reservation, I changed it from 2 to 4 people. When we arrived, they only had the reservation for 2 and told us we couldn't be seated. The hostess was frustrated that I didn't call and relied on Open Table. I told her the website directed me to use it. She finally found us a table and the food and service was fabulous! I was made to feel I made a mistake when I felt their website was misleading. I will now call ahead to verify.
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!
