One of my favorites. I love the live music and that the staff are also performers in waiting
The portions are huge. Its an old school theater district deli style restaurant. Its close to the theaters and affordable. Its very casual but friendly. Servers are prompt so you can get in and out on time for the show!
I made our reservation at Max's because it was the only place available close enough to the Herbst theater for our 7pm show. My usual go-to spots were booked. What a pleasant surprise to have such an excellent meal and service on top of being just a block away from the show!
I came here before going to see a show at the War Memorial Opera House. The food was all right. The crowd was older, average age was probably around 49-60. Our waitress was super nice and had a great singing voice.
So many of the menu items have peas in them, it's strange. My chicken was cooked to the point of being dusty dry. Our waiter was grumpy and rude. They had a piano player which was nice, but then they added a guy belting out old tunes which made conversation difficult. Not a place I would return to for dinner.
My two baby daughters and I just love the raisin dinner rolls. The chicken pot pie was excellent as usual.
I went with my almost 13-year-old friend for dinner before a performance of nutcracker. My friend loved the grilled cheese sandwich on the kids menu. I like the wide variety of food on Max’s menu. Salads are consistently good. Portions are huge. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure we were done in time to get to the show.
Food was just above average. Service was not great. But very convenient and near symphony and opera house. Overpriced for quality of food.
Good comfort food
Larry the piano guy was outstanding.
