Birthday Lunch! Had the filet it was incredible!!!!!
We had the best waiter very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu! Food was delicious!
Awesome menu of unique selections. Excellent meal
Date night with spouse. Once again a great experience.
Friendly and accommodating service. Delicious food. Great experience!
We went to Max’s for my birthday. Outdoor tent dining was expected and did not disappoint. The service was wonderful, as was the food.
We had a great meal outside. I had the lamb shank, mashed potato and kale. The lamb was tender and not greasy, delicious.
Max's was great! I will definitely return this year!
As always the food and service were great even with the current situation of covid. The menu was full of all of the selections that Max's offers. The specials amazing too. Thanks for making my birthday meal a memorable occasion!!
Max’s is always consistent and their servers are THE BEST!
It was so fun to be out again! They followed Covid protcols beautifully, our server Jordan was outstanding and even though we were outside in a tent, they kept it at a very comfortable temp. I'm still drooling over my halibut I had!
It was so nice to be able to go out to eat again. I was part of a two couple group that evening. The tent was set up nicely and the temperature was fine. The food was excellent. I specifically liked the meatloaf meal and the chocolate lava cake. The wine choices were good and the service was attentive. The menu is well rounded with a nice assortment of steak, seafood, pasta, chicken, and pork. There also is a good choice of salads and appetizers to choose from.
Nice get out finally, and we have always enjoyed Max’s. Just a great place. A gem in Fresno.
Fantastic meal and service. There is no better place to eat in Fresno.
Max’s is AMAZING!!! They are always updating their menu, creating amazing specials and the staff is so friendly! We are in their outside tent and it was beautifully decorated, ambience was nice and it wasn’t too cold. They did a great job having to modify the way they serve people.
Our cocktails were super delish- and meals prepared perfectly. I love that my fiancé loves a hamburger, even on our anniversary dinner. He says they are just so good there. I had the special fish and it was super yum! Would order again in a heartbeat
Wonderful experience, even though in tent! Food and service was excellent, as usual!
We took advantage on one of the last nights we were allowed to dine out at one of the nicer restaurants in town. We are so glad we chose Max’s, our whole experience was phenomenal. We ate in the tent outside but it was warm and cozy with more than 6 feet between tables. It all started with our server Megan...she was friendly, knowledgeable and made great suggestions. I decided to try the meatloaf that I had heard friends rave about and I wasn’t disappointed, it was delicious. Megan suggested I try the Brussels sprouts instead of the regular veggies and they were the BEST I have ever had. My husband was going to get the chicken but when he heard about the halibut special he opted for that...again it was perfect. The food was incredible the service was so good it truly enhanced our evening. We made reservations for New Year’s Eve and hopefully they will be back to outdoor dining. We will also request Megan as our server...she was the best!
Tremendous evening with friends with conversation that included our server Sierra! The best food, drinks, wine. JJ and the staff know how to make you feel comfortable and serve well thought culinary delights.
They are doing a wonderful job of providing an excellent dining experience given all the COVID 19 restrictions they have to adhere to. Above all the food was wonderful and we want to support them as much as possible so they continue to be in business. They have been our go to place for special occasions for years!
We went for brunch and our meals were fantastic, service was excellent. We typically don't order dessert but splurged on the Apple pie/tart. The server warned us that there was a 10 minute wait, but every minute was worth it! It was a fantastic dessert.
We have never had a bad experience!
Food was outstanding, as usual. But the outdoor-only service (due to Covid) in the big white tent was terrible because it was freezing and they had no heaters. They need to get the temperature in the rent straightened out or stop serving in the tent. When you pay $180+ for two-person dinner and drinks, you expect to eat in comfort!
Friendly management and staff. Knowledgeable wait staff. Excellent food. Great atmosphere. Eating indoors was the best part. I look forward to going back as soon as indoor dining is allowed again! Would recommend, highly!
It was my first time and I loved it. The servers were very attentive. When I finished my food, it didn’t even take 2 minutes before my plate was gone from the table.
An excellent experience and will be back for a visit soon!
Always good food, drink and atmosphere, and I appreciate the covid precautions you are taking for us all to feel comfortable and safe.
One of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time! Will definitely return an, would recommend this restaurant to everyone! The waitress was amazing, everyone greeted us which was very nice. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious! Everything was perfect!!
Just waiting for the Covid issue to be behind us so we can enjoy the full service and full menu.
Service was slow with drinks and taking the meal order. The food arrived in an expedite manner......after it was ordered.
It has been a while since we have eaten....only because so many good places to eat in Fresno/Clovis area. We went in service was great the food got many yums and we were so glad we decided to eat here .....great choices and will return without a doubt.
The food is always excellent. Staff is attentive and have good recommendations. Price are very reasonable as well. This is my fav place. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
Came here for lunch on a Sunday with my wife. It was very quiet and I was able to eat indoors which was great. staff was awesome, we had great service, food came out quickly and was delicious!! Had the peppercorn short rib sandwich, it was one of the best sandwiches I’ve had in a really long time. I also came her for Valentine’s day and the service was just as good! I will continue to return here as it is consistently good and I like it’s low key location
Beautiful indoor decor as well as the outdoor dining options. Excellent bread with vinegar and oil. The food was excellent but the service was extremely slow. The bar order was extremely slow as well.
Great dinner and service ! Would highly recommend!
Excellent as always.
Excellently prepared food and many delicious options. They served a complimentary tasting item that was delightful. We ordered several appetizers, drinks and main courses. All were good portion sizes and very flavorful. Nice wine list as well. I recommend trying one of the ports with dessert! Service was great, did not try to rush us out and setting allowed for ease of talking/hearing table conversation.
Max's is my fav place to dine! The food is delicious and the ambiance is very relaxing and enjoyable. Great place to invite friends for nice and cozy visit! Thank you Max's!
Service was excellent!
