Lunch was impeccable,well flavored French Dip meat with awesome roll, friend had a huge hamburger he said it was awesome, service was great ..
The food and drinks were very good and the service was excellent. Of course at this time its outside seating but it was well laid out. Its prices are on the high end but you get great food and service so in my opinion it was well worth it and I will be going back. Jeff.
Really enjoyed our dining experience at Max’s. Their food is always exceptional! They seems slightly understaffed as the service was not as prompt. Our drinks seemed to be taking longer than usual. The filet was exceptional, as always. Otherwise, the whole experience was a nice break from eating at home!
Great food and service!
The staff was awesome
We were their last table and they didn't mind our late hour reservation
A must try!
Great food and service
Always enjoy Maxs for dinner. Megan was an outstanding server and everyone is friendly and ambiance is nice. The Maxs burger is a favorite and the special which was pasta was excellent. Would always recommend Maxs for a great dining experience.
Great as always! Jordan is exceptional as always!
Great time. Food was excellent, service couldn’t have been better and they have done things to make you feel safe during the pandemic. Can’t wait for our next visit!
Very good food and the service could have been a little faster for the amount of people they had and the reduced capacity.
One of the best dining experiences in town - bar none.
The cuisine is always delicious. I have never had a bad dining experience.
Good to get back there and dine. New items on lunch menu well worth trying. Great social distancing with their tables, and as expected the service still at the same high standard.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Food and service are great!
Love love love this place. Great food. Best drinks in town. Fantastic service.
The service was spectacular and so was the ambience. The vegetarian option could have been better but the steak was perfectly cooked.
Maxs is set up perfectly for the Covid dining Experience. We were more than 6 feet from other patrons which kept the noise level quiet. All staff had on their protective gear. Our waitress Ezzy was fabulous!! And the food and wine was outstanding. It was great to dine in a restaurant again- I’m glad we chose Max’s
Fabulous after COVID-19 lockdowns. Get out there and enjoy people!
Max always delivers an amazing meal! And the service is top-notch. Love the wine list too.
Wonderful dinner at Max's!! While other restaurants are not attempting to comply with Covid-19 restrictions, Max's is doing it right. No crowded bar, and the tables were spaced accordingly.
Top it off with a fine meal, and it was a great experience!
This was our first dinner out post-lockdown and we had a wonderful time! Our server Megan was super friendly and attentive. The food was delish as always.
My friend and I really appreciated the restaurant’s adherence to anti-Covid19 practices: social distancing, keeping everything clean/sanitized, and providing a hand sanitizer on every table. We felt safe eating at Max’s Bistro and will go back.
So glad they are back serving lunch and dinner. We had a great time celebrating our son's high school graduation there. The food and service were great!
Food is always good here even though it is very pricey
Breaded Calamari steak on the hard side!!
Max's never disappoints - wonderful atmosphere, great service, and always delicious food! One of my top five places to take friends for a special evening and delicious meal!
Sat in the patio. Loud.
Great environment. Great food. Great service. Overall I would definitely go back.
We had delicious food and the atmosphere was perfect for a good visit. Service was very attentive.
The server was so very kind to allow us to have a seat before our reservation time. She was polite, helpful and the food was very good. I had never visited the restaurant before and was SO PLEASED that the ambiance was superb and the decore upscale and modern for my son's birthday. Thank you so much.
Our server Keegan was amazing, and so was the Short Rib Pot Pie!!
Dinner was excellent as always. This is the preferred restaurant for taking out guests when they visit.
Great atmosphere, pleasant and attentive service. Wonderful food, and well made drinks.
Even got seated early
Excellent food, atmosphere, and service. I would like to return to try something else on the menu.
The food was excellent and so was the service. The room was full of diners, so the noise level was moderate, but not annoying. This was our first time and we will definitely be return customers.
First time here was for Valentine’s day. We were quickly seated, and a passing waitress greeted us with Happy Valentine’s day which was a nice touch. The lighting was nice and the art work was nicely organized to fit the space is was in. Our waitress Jordan was extremely friendly and had a great sense of humor. I was excited to receive bread and fresh olive oil SECONDS after being seated where in most restaurants you have to ask/remind them. Kudos to the GM for investing in staffing because everyone was on top of their game. I had Filet mignon while my wife had short ribs, and the food was top notch! I loved the asparagus and their organic salad was a great healthy choice. After dinner we had the Molten chocolate lava cake and it was a perfect combo of ice cream and cake, and a great way to finish dinner service. We both walked out of there feeling well fed but not overly bloated which I owe to perfect portion sizes. Thank you Jordan and everyone else who pitched in to make this a memorable meal!
Annual valentines dinner
This has been our go to place for special occasions or whenever we just want to treat ourselves to a nice dinning experience. My wife always orders the Kobe Meatloaf. I think if they ever take it off the menu she may stage a one woman riot. I’ve tried it and even though I’m not a meatloaf fan generally, Max’s is pretty extraordinary. Tonight I had the Sea Scallops. This may have just become my new favorite dish. The scallops were perfectly cooked. Crispy brown on the outside and buttery on the inside. Served with a really tasty Cajun etouffee sauce with greens and the best grits I’ve ever eaten. Our server was very friendly and the service here is always very good. Everyone makes you feel like they are truly happy your there. It never feels forced or stuffy. Max’s really is special.
I Would always recommend this restaurant. JJ the owner is amazing and always appreciative of customers dining in his restaurant. The staff is outstanding, Andrea waited on us on Valentines Day with a migraine an was truly lovely as always. Great restaurant to dine at always.
