Awesome time! It was my husbands Birthday and I requested a table by the window!
We had a great time!
Great food! Took a while to get our food but it was worth the wait. Such a cool little restaurant too!
Excelent place to celebrate a birthday! Awesome that happy hour was offered in the entire resturant. Delicious appetizer (hot crab dip), delicious crab cake sandwich, and fabulous bread pudding! Very friendly and energetic server!
For some reason, despite Denver's size and recent growth it is difficult to find good quality seafood without having to go high-carb, high-brow, or high-dollar. Does everything here have to be about the "high"?
Enter Max Gill & Grill.
Food - A (Just go and see for yourself)
Service - A (They care; went out of the way to enhance the experience)
Ease of Experience - A minus (parking)
I tried Max Gill & Grill for the first time since moving to Denver almost one year ago. The food was great in terms of flavor and presentation, service was prompt and friendly, and the atmosphere was inviting and relaxing. Couple the experience with the walkability of Gaylord Street and the quaint Wash Park location and you have a solid overall experience. I will definitely be returning again.
Incredible food and ambiance!! Our server was a little grumpy but the seafood can’t be beat!
Valentines day meal was perfect. Fresh and all scratch made.
This place is awesome. Best happy hour. The food is great.
We go to Max a few times a year, mostly for special occasions. Always have a good time. A little pricey, but great food and service. Main area can be loud.
Went to Max’s for Valentine’s Day. Food was excellent, love the no fuss atmosphere. Was a little on the loud size, but mainly b/c they were so busy.
This is some of the best seafood Denver has to offer. Nothing on the menu has ever let me down.
Outstanding dinner,great service
Been going there for many years and have never been disappointed
One of the best around
Use the valet service to park
Another great experience at Max, this time Valentines day. We had a smorgasbord of items and beverages. I had a couple beers and my sweet significant other had a couple Manhattans with the real Jerrys. We had oysters, mussels, shrimp étouffée, and lots of different flavored wings. Emily our server was fantastic and attentive, even though the place was quite busy. Next time we will investigate their tiki bar in the back!
Food service was exceedingly slow - even on a busy night! Live music was really nice!
Handicapped accommodation minimal. Side dish offerings not very appealing. Valet parking nowhere in sight. Great crab and salad though and our waiter was very attentive and friendly.
Maybe just an aberration but food was not to standard, nor was the service.
This is one of my friends favorite place so we went for her Birthday celebration, we had a great time, the food was great service was wonderful. We had a nice celebration.
1st time to Gill and Grill. Made reservations on open table and as requested table was by the fireplace, ready when we requested and we had great service A+! We will be back soon. Only problem was finding parking at 5 p.m. but they offer free valet.
Food selection good, on time and very tasty. Really enjoyed! Happy 31st Jackie Barlock (my daughter)
I loved the ambiance but I thought the food and service were just average. We had the blue crab dip and clam chowder soup and it was nothing special. Disappointed in the service too. Had to ask multiple times for more bread, water, and the waitress forgot my salad which I then decided to forego. Would come back for drinks and try the raw bar - but probably not for food.
Great recommendations from our server, they really take the time to invest in their training so their staff knows their stuff! Our food was amazing, and the service was great. Would definitely recommend!
We love Max Gill & Grill... Josh our server was fun.. served 🍸
Filled to top with excellence
The oysters on half were great as was calamari as were ribs!!!
Overall a good experience. We ordered a chocolate cake dessert and it was dry. cake was supposed to come with whipped cream (didn’t) so we had to ask for......
Waiter was great! Our first time there will come back.
We usually go to Washington Park Grille when we go to a restaurant over on South Gaylord, but my husband and I have been wanting to try Max Gill and Grill for a long time. The atmosphere in the front dining room was very nice. There was a fire going which made the small room seem very comfortable and intimate. The service was prompt and friendly. I started with the soup special which was a tomato basil. It was delicious and hot. So many restaurants serve cold soup these days. My husband ordered the calamari. Unfortunately, it came out very soggy. We should have returned it. I ordered one of the specials for the night which was a Marlin Marsala. The marlin was cooked perfectly. The mushroom sauce was a little thicker than I like, but overall a nice dish. My husband said his short rib pasta was good. The pasta was cooked perfectly, but the short ribs were a little fatty. The creme brulee that evening was a chai, cappucino. It had a very interesting flavor. I really liked it. The wine list actually has some reasonably priced wines on the menu. Overall, a nice experience and we will go back.
Food was good as always. Service was very disappointing. Young man was totally overwhelmed and out of his element. Very busy and he was obviously not trained well and/or not suited to be a server.
Manager came over and apologized. They took 50% off the bill so they acknowledged the unfortunate experience. Just not the birthday celebration we had hoped for.
Food has always been excellent and will return.
Overall everything was great. We made it for the tail end of happy hour and made use of their happy hour food and drink specials. The lobster flatbread, mussels and clams were all very good. My dad and I shared a lobster roll which was delicious, and my dad is hard to impress but he loved the lobster roll. Uncle enjoyed the wings, the lobster macaroni and cheese was well enjoyed by the friend that ordered it, and even the shrimp etoufee and fish tacos was a hit. This place is a long term favorite of mine that I’ll continue to return to
Went on a Wednesday night and it was pretty busy (wings special). We ordered the crab dip appetizer and weren't too thrilled. Needed something else to eat with the dip (chips?) but the flavor was not all that great so wouldn't recommend it. Ordered the chicken/lobster and it was tasty along with the risotto. Date ordered a tilapia special that was drowning in crab sauce. Service was slow, server had to come back to get our drink order because he forgot it and didn't write it down. He wrote it down when he came back though. They packaged up my leftovers but did not put my leftover risotto in the box! I mentioned this to the server and he brought me a small container of it. We ordered a cold dessert, which took a long time to get and then a bit longer to even get our check. We had not been here in a long time but it'll be a while before we go back. Plenty of other places with better service/experience.
Good service and good food. Get a fireside table for warmth and ambiance. Lots of seafood options. Casual atmosphere. Good beers on tap, too although we selected from the wine list, which had many good selections at honest prices.
WAITRESS TRIED TO SEAT US IN A TINY TABLE SQUEEZED IN NEXT TO THE FIREPLACE. I COULDNT FIT THERE. WE ENDED UP AT A 6 PERSON BOOTH NEXT TO THE BAR. WAY TO BIG. ILL ASK FOR A LARGER TABLE NEXT TIME SO THE WAIT STAFF DOESNT GET SCREWED SERVING 2 AT A 6 TABLE.. EVERYTHING WAS VERY NICE.
What a great restaurant! It’s New Years Eve, the ambience was perfect and the service was excellent. Our waiter Josh had an awesome sense of humor and made great meal suggestions. The food was outstanding the girls had surf and turf, my son had the shrimp and seafood linguine and I had the Colorado lamb! Great meal, great location and outstanding service!!
This restaurant is under new ownership but the food was still the same! Love the surf and turf. Lots of food and awesome atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and service was great.
