Seafood was just OK and this is supposed to be a seafood place. The restaurant is nice inside but tables are already on top of each other in areas. Wine list is reasonably priced
Service was slow and the portion size was pitiful. . . Over priced for what you got
Out of fried shrimp, so
Everything was wonderful. Service was great. Food was delicious
Everything was excellent
Was disappointed i ordered what i was told was the new name for seafood combination.it came with 1 scallop 1 shrimp 1 small crabcake and half of a tiny mushy tail which i sent back to cook more . It should of been an appetizer sampler not my dinner. Guess I ordered the wrong thing my wife loved her dinner
IF YOU are looking for an EXCELLENT SEAFOOD meal you need to go to Gloucester City, NJ to Max's Seafood Cafe. Every meal is a delight. Soups like Seafood Gumbo are the best and mixed grill terrific. WE always enjoy our meal at MAX'S!
Sad the kitchen was horrible, we had to wait nearly 2 hours for our dinners. Server was very nice, apologized for the kitchen delay. I don’t believe the kitchen staff could handle the crowd. Dinner was average, nothing exciting We won’t be back
The restaurant was very busy on a Saturday night (which is a good thing!) but the entire staff handled it well and with smiles making sure we were well taken care of. Great menu options. Tough to decide what entree to get! The crab dip appetizer was the perfect portion for two people to share. Amazed at how good the key lime pie was! Can’t wait to return! Overall a wonderful dining experience
I love Max’s! Our table had Mussels, Seafood Fra Diable, Filet and Cake Cakes. All which were outstanding! Filet was cooked to perfection and probably the best I ever had.
I love the exposed brickwork. This was was second time here and had a great experience both times. I tried different dishes each time and they were delicious.
Delicious food and great service!
Staff very attentive and food served hot.
Was excited to try a new place out but left disappointed. Reservations were at 6:30pm. Appetizers didn't come out until 7:45 and dinner 8:15. Waitress was hard to locate and when at table did make quick apologies but no manager. No rhyme or reason for tables being served; table of 4 like us sat a good 30 minutes after us but were being served dessert as our dinners were coming out. Other tables like ours were waiting a long time. Food was fine but not worth going back.
They have the mussels down perfect.
We enjoyed all of our meals. I thought it was fairly priced and worthy of a return trip.
Did not get to eat here as they was closed but let us make a reservation very disappointed
Only 2 other tables occupied and service still took awhile. Overpriced for the amount of food I received and for the price I would have thought the meal would have come with a salad. Had to ask twice for salt and pepper. Portions were very small for the price. I will not return nor would I recommend it. Very disappointed.
Food is amazing. Service was slow but we were not in a hurry. Highly recommended.
Food was excellent, great wine choices. Staff was very attentive. Great place to eat
Food was excellent, service was slow that night though, and too many people allowed in at one time.
Great fresh meal at a reasonable price. Love the decor. Wait staff very attentive.
This is very enjoyable place to visit. Great ambience, friendly service, good sized and fairly priced drinks and the menu is varied enough that most anyone can find things that appeal to them.
Service was excellent and so were our dinners. We’ll visit again soon!
I loved this place, it was awesome. Just a bit dark but the food was superb and excellent service.
We had a delicious dinner!
There was no social distancing. The dining room got crowded so we ate quickly and left.
Food & service was excellent. This place is a hidden jewel, I will definitely be back for more
Food and drinks were perfect. Our server Kelly was super nice and attentive. We just moved to the area and will definitely become frequents.
Great food, service was slow, server seemed overwhelmed. Poor wine list. Restaurant seemed over crowded durning covid. Would possibly go back .. maybe not on a holiday!
Awesome classy place. My lady loves it.
The food was really good. I ordered a seafood sampler and was a little disappointed that it came with only one shrimp and one scallop. Other than that everything was great. I plan to go again.
Good food. Limited draft IPA selection, only 3 by the glass red wines. All in all- a winner!
Great service and good food for a fair price
The food and the service were excellent! From appetizers to dessert!
Incredible food and tons of charm! We will be back for sure
Great spot! Love the food when we come here.
Second time dining at Max’s and just like the last time, I look forward to going back again. This restaurant is definitely on our radar these days. The mussels are spot on, crab dip is delectable, huge clams casino with chopped clams the way we like them. The salmon on a plank is so good, some of our party had scallops and raved. The desserts were the happy surprise because the first time I went they ran out of dessert. Now I know why! Sooo good. The ambience is that of old world neighborhood pub. Very comfortable.
Great service, the bartender made great drinks as well as the food being cooked perfect.. will definitely be back !!
