Max's Oyster Bar is the fourth creation of restaurateur Richard Rosenthal and his partner Bob Cooke, formerly of Legal Seafood Restaurant Company. Located among unique shops, coffeehouses, and several restaurants, Max's Oyster Bar compliments West Hartford Center's charming and growing shopping district. The understated atmosphere of muted colors and comfortable seating allows diner's to focus on the truly important, the food. Featuring modern renditions of classic American seafood, Max's Oyster Bar menu has something for everyone. While seafood is the focal point, there are selections for even the most land bound. Ethnic influences are apparent throughout a menu filled with new interpretations on traditional fare.

Great food! We had oysters (of course), for an appetizer. My husband had the paella, which he enjoyed, although found it a little too salty. I had the wasabi tuna, also very good. The waitstaff was very attentive, and made sure we had everything we needed. The only complaint I have is that the lighting is so low- at least where we were seated- that it made it difficult to read the menu.
