Max's Seafood Cafe
Had a nice plate of oysters and the Bronzino. They didn’t have the broccoli rabe or it would have been 5 stars.
We had a wonderful experience at Max's Seafood! The food was fresh and delicious and the place is gorgeous!!! Great drinks too! We cannot wait to go back.
We drive a distance to eat there. Seafood is great and so are the drinks.
Love this place. However, they weren't ready for how many people showed up without a reservation looking for a table to eat. We had an 8:15 reservation and was seated at 8:40. No one came to take our order until 9:15. The bartender and hostess were both doing double duty between seating people, taking orders, getting drinks and food out to people. They kept apologizing to us and comp us a free round of drinks. The food was so delicious and worth it. We weren't in a hurry so the wait wasn't a problem for us. And the prices were reasonable for it being New Year's Eve.
Made reservations for 5 at 2pm had confirmation number and the restaurant was closed with no sign or reason. Their Yelp said open at two, Open Table said Open at 2, sign on door said open at 11:30, Facebook said open at 2:30 and their phone message said open at 4pm. They need to fix their social media sites and synchronize. I wonder why Open table allowed me to make the reservation and have me a confirmation number? I waisted 30 minutes there and 30 minutes home. Very upset!
our new favorite restaurant...you won't be disappointed
We had reservations at another restaurant for Christmas eve. Our reservation was suddenly cancelled when an employee was found to be covid19 positive. We quickly contacted Max's, and as luck would have it, there.was a time available that suited us. We've been here before and so glad we came back. Food was delicious and the staff gracious and friendly.
Bronzino was delicious, clams casino and crab cakes We awesome. Great meal for our group of 4.
hands down one of the best restaurants we've ever been to..food was great and the people were just as good if not better!!!! A for sure hidden gem!! We live in Cape May and we will be back soon with friends
Food was amazing and delicious. Cooked perfectly! Service was a little slow, but it’s understandable given the circumstances. Love this place!
I’ve never been an occasional patron of this establishment for 40 years, dating back to their original location and I’ve never been disappointed.
Aside from absolutely fantastic gumbo the remainder of the meal both appetizers and entrées were quite bland and uneventful service was quite slow one waitress covering numerous tables neighborhood not specifically friendly a bit threatening even
Great food service was excellent.
Great food great appetizers
I realize that these are difficult times but we appeared to be the only table being served during our visit and yet we waited over an hour for our meal to be served. Our waitress was obviously new but pleasant and tried to be helpful. The food, as always, was delicious and we will return.
Our server was very enjoyable and engaging. Wonderful dining experience!
Their mussels in spicy red sauce as an appy are ridiculously delicious. We also had coconut shrimp as an appetizer and were just as good! My wife had the Salmon on a Cedar Plank entree and I had the Honey Crusted Sea Bass. The food here never disappoints. The Key Lime pie dessert rounded out the dinner perfectly. Highly recommend this place. PS The manager offered a nice bottle of Esprit de Fonrozay Bordeaux for $15. which was really good. Who says you can’t drink red with fish?
2nd time dining here, but first time ordering from main menu. Service was fantastic, food cooked properly, well seasoned and delicious. We will be back again.
Great food and service. Small town warmth and Hometown feel of a Restaurant business that has been in the neighborhood for many years.
did not love the place food was good
Great drinks, one of the best Manhattans around
As always, the staff were very friendly and our meals were awesome. We will be back again.
The dining room has a warm and comfortable feel to it. Our waiter/bartender was very pleasant and outgoing. He was very helpful with our wine selection as well as menu choices. The food was very tasty and appealing to the eye. We will be back again for sure.
First time there and can’t wait to go back. Food was delicious and the staff very efficient and friendly!
Excellent food, fair prices, great service.
Food and service was good. I always love the architecture of the building and decor.
Server was friendly and food was very good. Menu offered a nice variety.
What a great Experience. Our table was ready when we arrived and the service and food were excellent!
We had a great time Little slow but that was ok
Dinner was hot and very good. Apps were delicious too
On the way out there was a singer who was very good. I could sit at the bar and listen to him and have a drink
We will Go back
Food and service was excellent.
First time visit to Max’s. When we made the reservation via Open Table we were not made aware that our reservation on February 15th as a price fix night, a hangover from Valentines Day the day before. Therefore, it wound up being about a twice as expensive evening for my wife and I. That said, we enjoyed our experience, the food was very good and we will give the restaurant another try. I look forward to the trying regular menu.
Too expensive, tension among staff
Always a great date night dinner spot with great food and drinks!
Another great meal at Max's
Never disappoints! Food is amazing.
The food was delicious. Our server, John, was really knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. The building is historic and very comfortable. On street parking was available, but we were early reservation, so, not sure how it would be during prime time. Live music started just before we left. It was not overly loud, which was appreciated. But, it was located in the bar at the entrance which was small and sort of cramped. Was not a problem for us, but might be for people sitting at the bar. We will definitely return.
Wonderful corner tavern where the martinis are fabulous! The seafood is fresh and well prepared. Service is terrific and the folks there are very friendly. This won't be our last visit!
Table of 6 service was excellent staff attentive food was very good.
We made a reservation several days prior and when we arrived, we waited for 20 minutes to be seated despite it not being crowded. Two of our party ordered steaks at medium and medium well and both came out the same; overcooked and dried out. The salmon would have been good if it was wasn’t overcooked and my side came out cold. One of the appetizers never came out at all as the waiter forgot to put it in. We won’t be returning.
Great restaurant. Great food.
