    Second time with the wifey: once for dinner and another for lunch. I love the lunch menu! Great drinks, casual but yet elevated atmosphere with delicious food!

    Service was fabulous, the food was so tasty and well presented. Wine selection was adequate, the only down side was the lack of premium bourbons. Always a great dinner at Max’s!!!

    Waitress misquoted special pricing which resulted in overcharge. Waited 10 minutes longer than tables next to us. Salmon dinner was cold…was told it was because the artichokes were cold thus it was my fault as I ordered the wrong dinner. Manager was nice (Josh) and said waitress misquoted the dinner…comped my beer. At the end of the day dinner was not great and service was poor. There are a lot of other better choices in Fresno. Please don’t waist your money or your time. We will not be back.

    Wait staff was wonderful! She was helpful but not hovering. Water glasses refilled as needed! The food is always great. The menu built to please anyone. We were welcomed warmly and seated right away. We’ve been going to Max’s for decades and are never disappointed!!

    Went to Max's for a business lunch and we were given a seat in the back, which was perfect for our ability to discuss what needed to be done. Service was great and the food was perfect. We both had the Steak salad and the steak was tender and done to perfection. I always love coming here. They do a great job lunch or dinner.
