Great service and good for a special occasion. Nicely designed outdoor seating options have been added. Entree prices surprisingly high for a fairly casual dining experience in Fresno. The food is very good, but not unique or particularly creative.
Nice ambience and the server was personable and provided excellent service.
I love Max's they consistently provide excellent service and good food.
Food was delicious, but presentation could have been nicer. Our server was great and accommodating.
Loved the French dip and the sweet potatoe fries r my FAVORITE absolutely recommend 😁😁
We had a lovely dinner, with excellent service. We will be back!
Boy friends birthday. Loves the food! Everything was good!
Our party of seven had a Sunday brunch that covered all bases: Angel hair with shrimp, Chinese chicken salad, Muffuletta, Special pancakes, Tomato soup, Eggplant parmigiana, and Max's burger.
Everything was well presented and arrived in a timely manner. Its a good thing we were hungry as the portions were a good size.
Quite a few families were there and social distancing was not a problem.
With drinks it came to $200 with a 20% tip.
Melissa was our server and she did a great job with a few delivery helpers.
It was great to be back!
We had an amazing Anniversary dinner! The food is delicious and the service was excellent! A special thanks to Alex!! 💗
Great food, great service, one of our favorite restaurants.
Four of us had dinner here on a Saturday night. The Service was SPOT on. The food was perfect for 3 out of 4 of us. I had the Ravioli which came in a broth with portabella mushrooms and was a 10 out of 10. My sister had the short ribs that were exceptional as well. The bread pudding for desert was perfect and not too big. We also got the Sweet Potato fries as an appetizer to see if they were as good as we remembered. My husband thought they were!! Some of the wine prices per glass were a big high-- I got a Pinot Noir that was 9.50 and it was lovely!! Glad we went here for the first time in years!! Very nice meal!!!!
Our server was outstanding, did not rush us. The food was, as usual, tops.
Enjoyed our evening out. The food was wonderful and service was great as well.
Fantastic food, quick and friendly service! Try the sweet potato fries, they are the best in town!
Outstanding as always. One of the best spots in town.
A bit noisy but food always great and staff very accommodating
Wonderful as always!
Great food and service!
Great service and food!
Celebrated with Birthday luncheon! Excellent food and service. Great place.
We’re still more comfortable dining outdoors and were accommodated at a table in the walkway. The service was attentive and the food was great as always. Max’s is our go to place for a nice and relaxed dinner out.
Great Fast service! food was amazing! steak perfectly cooked med rare ! would come back again!
I have noticed that every time I am seated in a very awkward area of the restaurant. I enjoy coming to this spot because of the ambiance but the seating situation makes me hesitant.
Excellent as always. JJ has done it right!
Celebrating a birthday and so excited to be able to do it indoors at Max’s again. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. Not sure if server inexperienced or just overwhelmed... didn’t ask about cocktails or wine or appetizer, didn’t offer fresh pepper for salads, forgot we were celebrating a birthday so no candle with dessert. Apologized after but darn! Sweet potato fries, martinis and entrees very good but sides not so much. Veggies almost raw. Not sure what was served with pork chop, looked like refried beans and didn’t have much taste so didn’t eat it. Desserts not up to par either. We’ll be back cause we’re hoping this was just a bump in the road after so much time away from indoor dining due to the pandemic.
My favorite restaurant in Fresno. The food is always delicious and they have a great selection on the menu. The service is friendly and attentive to your needs. Would definitely recommend. We will be back!
the food is excellent & i love the different types of choices so there really is something for everyone no matter your food preference
Servers were very slow on continuing to check in with us regarding any needs. We had to keep asking for the same thing twice, such as extra seat, napkins, or food item. Drinks were flat and switched out, then tasted just carbonated but eventually was fixed on the 3rd try. Server wasn’t completely rude, but she was a bit snippy with questions regarding menu. I would probably not eat here again based off the overall experience. The only thing I can excuse was how long our food took to be served, since we had 8 people. Other than that, I’ll have to pass on eating here again.
As always the food is amazing and the experience of dining at Max’s is perfect for meeting up with friends and family. Great night out! Can’t wait to go back.
Always enjoy going to Max's. Service and food were excellent as usual. Had a really enjoyable birthday lunch for my wife!
The french fries were amazing! Also, the lamb was excellent. Enjoyed our experience!
One of Fresnos finest restaurants. Highly recommend 👌
Max’s is delicious and the service is top notch. We love this place!
Ahhhmazing service and meal. Max’s always impresses. Top notch!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We really enjoyed being able to be in a restaurant again. The food (chopped salad and short ribs) were excellent. The ambiance was nice and the service excellent (Jordan).
We look forward to returning.
Excellent service from every member of the staff that we encountered. The food was outstanding with the exception of the white bean bruschetta. While not bad tasting, it wasn't our cup of tea. The NY steak special was incredible! My companion had the short rib that could literally be eaten with a spoon it was so tender. While pricey, you get the quality experience you are paying for. We will definitely be coming back for special occasions.
Birthday Lunch! Had the filet it was incredible!!!!!
We had the best waiter very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu! Food was delicious!
