I enjoy coming here - the food is always good and the servers are very friendly and more than willing to accomodate special requests. And the free valet parking is great!! It takes the hassle out of trying to find a parking spot in this crowded neighborhood area.
I brought my boyfriend to Max's for his birthday this past Wednesday and made reservations through Round Table and also put a additional note on the reservation that it was his birthday. He had been to the restaurant before and expressed how good the food was. We were both starving and so decided to order an appetizer which was recommended from our waiter: the blue crab dip. A little after ordering the app, the waiter came and took our food order. About 20 - 25 minutes later our appetizer came and a minute after that our entrees came. Hopefully one would understand my dissapointment with that as the restaurant is supposed to be of "finer dinning" and most of the time when I go to a "nicer" restaurant you get the appetizer well before.
I sat at the bar in the back with a friend, and it felt like I was back in college...loud, very crowded. Probably because they have an excellent happy hour, with cheap drinks, and super-inexpensive tacos. Food was good, service was slow, and since I'm not still in college, I'll probably pick a different spot...
We had the prime rib. Three portions were fine. The fourth was very fatty!
The food was great, although the selection of vegetarian options is limited. The one gripe I had with the restaurant was the noise level. It was really loud and I had called ahead and asked about the noise level and was told that it wasn't an issue, but that they would give us an extra quiet table because a few of our diners are somewhat hard of hearing. Not only was the restaurant really loud, but they sat us next to the bar under a tv. Needless to say, it was nearly impossible to talk to the people at the other end of the table and the diners with us who have difficulty hearing were almost cut off from all conversation! A definite negative!
Delicious salads. Everyone at the table was well satisfied!
Our server was very busy but still stayed attentive to our needs.
Loved the bloody mary bar!
We got a table by the wait station, wich we were bummed about, but the service was excellent and the food was very good as well. My steak was cooked perfectly and the seafood dish was excellent too. We will go back, very casual atmosphere with good food and great service...
It was alright, nothing really to write home about............They were a bit over priced for the food! They never did wish my hubby a happy birthday...
Food was very good and well presented. The service in a word - outstanding.
We were placed at a round table, as requested, Thank you! food was great and a wonderful waiter!
We love Max Gill and Grill. Great people, food and atmosphere!! Everyone should be so lucky to have a spot like this nearby. It is like CHEERS with very good food. Don't miss the salmon entree!
Had a great table for two by the fireplace. Halibut was well prepared and the service was excellent. Attentive but not intrusive. Reasonably priced. Will go back soon.
A group of us enjoyed dinner at Max Gill and Grill. We LOVED it! Our waiter was extremely attentive and made excellent suggestions that were right on the mark. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will be back for more.
One of our party was gluten/dairy intolerant and the waitress went out of her way to insure a meal this person could eat. And I was told it was wonderful!
We really enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere. Our waitress did a fantastic job. I actually spilled a glass of red wine and it went all over my shirt. The waitress appeared at our table immediately with "red wine remover." She said she heard the clink of the glass hitting the table. The red wine came out of my clothes no problem - thanks to our waitresses quick thinking. We will eat here again for sure.
Fun local seafood
The food is consistently good and the services is always friendly. My favorite is being able to choose how your fish is prepared and what sauce and vegetable. Lots of great options and the fish is fresh and reasonably priced.
All in all the meal was great. The restaurant was quiet except for our table.
My new fave restaurant. I felt like I was in New England! Everything was outstanding. Blue Crab dip...YUM!!!!
Max Gill & Grill is one of our family's favorite restaurants. We frequent it often and always enjoy good food with friendly service. The steamed little neck clams and truffle fries are outstanding. The lobster & shrimp linguine is also a favorite.
neither the softshell crab tempura or the grilled salmon were any good. Management needs to do a better job with quality control. The service was fine, but the food and presentation was below average at best.
We had a great time. The food was fantastic. The lobster in my lobster roll was cooked perfectly. Service was prompt and very friendly.
Great food and very personable server. A bit noisy.
My favorite restaurant in Denver--- over the six years I have been going to Max's Gill and Grill I have never had a bad experience (service, food, etc). I always suggest Max's to friends and family with confidence. Will continue to enjoy Max's Gill and Grill in the future.
While a bit loud, Max G&G had a nice fish restaurant ambience and a basically sound seafood menu. The drinks were well prepared, and the desserts were excellent. We tried the special one-pound lobster entree; the beasts did not seem particularly fresh, as the taste was muted--maybe from frozen lobster? The coffee was fresh, the neighborhood was friendly, the waiter was spunky and very accommodating. If we drive down again, we'll try more traditional seafood entrees.
As always the food was good, but also as always the sevice was fair at best. Plan on spending quite a bit of time there as the service is slower than molases! It took forever to get our food, our waiter forgot our cornbread and when we finally asked where it was he then went back to the kitchen to get it. When we asked for butter, our waiter brought us two melted packets of butter to be split among four people. The service never got any better and this is the seond time we have been there and the second time we have had poor service. I am not sure we will be back as there are quite a few other seafood restaurants in Denver that I am sure are just as good, with much better service.
Good food. When wait staff removes the dishes of those who are finished while others are still eating, it is rude and makes those still eating feel rushed.
Frequent Max's for dinner, but this was our first try at brunch. The menu and execution, is flawless as always. Highly recommend the ham and pear crisp sandwich, and the Crabby Benedict. The Bloody Mary Bar and Bottomless Mimosas were fantastic.
Get there early, and get a spot on the patio!
We had a great time! The food was delicious and our server was attentive and friendly.
food was excellent as was service
got a bit loud as it filled up but not too loud
I highly recommend the seafood stew yummmmmm
Max Gill and Grill meal was delicious and the presentation was wonderful. The atmosphere is one of a taveren, with different levels of seating and an outside pation as well. We both enjoyed great fish which was plated nicely. The desserts were great as well. The service was attentive but no intrusive. If I could improve one thing would be to improve the selection of wines and beers. Otherwise enjoyed ourselves and will be back.
This was our 2nd visit and we do't think it was as good as the first time. Although we were a little late, we did call to let them know ahead of time, they sat us somewhere in the hallway like area that wasn't to romantic for the reason of the visit. The menu and with the lighting was very dificult to read, Just wasn't what we had in mind for our anniversary dinner. Food was alright, nothing to write home about.
Great food, staff was very friendly. Only downfall is the tables inside the door are a little loud.
Great service! Delicious food! and a willingness to adjust a dish for the diner's preferences. Three things that make for a wonderful restaurant!
Great relaxed atmosphere. Great service and always excellent food.
Fantastic, as always. Max's is a go-to regular spot for us, we love the staff and the regular menu and specials are always greatness!
The food was great, we got the #0% off deal, so thqat was awesome. The only thing was that that we could only go around 9:00pm and by that time they were out ofe everything we wanted to see like the lobster. Other than that the service was great. I'm planning on going again soon. I love the fresh seafood that they have. OMG. It was so good and fresh.
Although this has been one of our favorite places, service on this visit was pretty bad. Rarely did we see our waitress, but at least the bus person would swing by and attend to our needs. Example, the waitress served our salad and left without asking if we needed anything. I couldn't get it out soon enough to ask for SILVERWARE. After 5 minutes, I went to the front and picked up a couple of sets. Not sure if I want to go back for a while.
I love this restaurant, but the crab night was disappointing.
Not their fault but the amount of king crab you get in a pound was surprisly disappointing. Given that they were serving king crab the service amenities weren't great - no naps to wipe off your hands and the table wasn't cleaned after the dishes were removed. I'll buy my crab at the grocery and have it at home the next time.
Enjoyable meal. Not many places have chiopino.
