Small menu that they do well. My only negative is the prices. It’s a bit overpriced though considering it’s served in foil containers with plastic forks. $16 for a double burger feels like a stretch, especially when you have to pay more to put a slice of cheese on it. Would come back just to get some drinks and apps.

Our server was great! The menu was small, food was average. I ordered a summer salad and it was just a basic salad you would get from any restaurant. Drinks were good. They had a nice beer selection, different from most restaurants in Lancaster which I did enjoy.

I tried Max when it just opened and wasn’t that impressed so I thought almost 2 years have passed let’s try it again. My family was intown and was thankful for the reservations due to covid but the milkshakes are half whipped cream for the price. And the prices are high for the quality.
There was a few mix ups with our orders but to be honest I have grace because everyone’s in masks and trying to get through this together.

All in all. Cute place for a hangout with friends. Not a fan of the food.

We were seated promptly and greeted very nicely and professionally. The hostess made sure we liked the table we were seated at and inquired if we had any special needs, allergies or other needs. Our drinks were unique and delicious. The food was brilliant with that special Max’s twist. I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and delicious meal. We enjoyed excellent service from Christina and Austin. We’ll be back.

This was my first time dinning out post-Covid and I was really impressed at how Max’s was setup for easy social distancing and peace of mind. Everything that came to our table was single service and the menu was available via QR code. The service was excellent as always and our server Karen was very well trained in social distance serving. The food was exceptional, again as always. The menu was a comfortable mix of old favorites and new fabulous sounding additions. Everything we had was wonderful! I will happily return to Max’s during these strange times, knowing I’ll be in a welcoming and safe environment to enjoy some of my favorite grub! Thanks Guys!

Max's Eatery is one of our favorite restaurants and we were so happy to be able to eat indoors safely. They have adapted to the "new" normal in this time of COVID-19 and we felt safe and the food was, as always, amazing! We can't wait to go back!

As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a problem that looked like short staff. 7 or 8 empty tables, and an entrance area crowded with standing people waiting to be seated.
Waitress was friendly, but there were not enough people waitressing tables. Service was slow

I reserved here for myself and 2 friends. We ordered our drinks. Several very large parties were seated after us. We waited. The large party behind us ordered their drinks. They received their drinks. We waited some more. After about 1/2 hour, and still no drinks, we had the sneaking suspicion that either we were being ignored in favor of the large parties, or simply just forgotten about. Instead of trying to push the issue, we just left and went to the Dispensing Company, we we received excellent service, food and drinks just like we always do. I wanted to give this place a good review, but they were just not on their game or something.

The food was good however very pricy. Milkshakes were too expensive to not be thicker than what they were. Very cute place and good service. Great onion rings too!

There was no lightbulb in the light so the section we were seated in was very dark. The waitress did not check in on us very often and took a really long time to get us our check.

We had a great meal, there for Tiki month and it was so much fun! Service was fast and efficient. The whole place was decorated for the Tiki month, it was like a mini tropical vacation. Also on Fri-Sun they serve bottomless mimosas.

Our food was amazing. I have one suggestion to make for breakfast. Add some fun coffee drinks like lattes or iced coffee. I would have loved to be able to have that with my breakfast.

The scrapple my husband ate was the best he's had in Lancaster County.
