Max’s never disappoints. The filet is the best of anywhere I’ve ever had one! It’s always so tender you could almost cut it with a fork and delicious! And the service is is always fabulous to boot!

We admire Max's congeniality, consistency and masterful command of seafood. They have a decent wine list, but a bit annoyed with their running out of Sancerre. A Pouilly Fume was a fine substitute, albeit at a 25% premium. Onion soup was a bit bland. Desserts ok, but not on a par with their appetizers and mains.

Had a wonderful birthday dinner with my mom. We both ordered steaks. I preferred her filet mignon to my prime rib. The spinach salad was delicious. The French onion soup too salty. Great service from waiters named Tim and Sean.

Went for family Easter dinner and was not disappointed. Everyone’s meal was superb as was the service and atmosphere. I like the fact that you do not feel “packed in” like some other restaurants. I’d love it if they offered more vegetarian options.

This was my father's 90th birthday Max staff made my father's feel so happy they were extremely polite attentive and I think they were way out of their way to make him feel celebrate his 90th birthday. I cannot in any words appreciate what they have done to make him happy this night. I am truly grateful for having such outstanding service and their hospitality by far one of the best receptions I have received in many years they are a true rock stars in my opinion

Max's is one of the top spots in the Springfield area to have a nice meal, with top-notch service, in a very upscale atmosphere. There is always plenty of free adjacent parking, and the food is always good, even if a little pricy.

Prix fix prime rib dinner was excellent, as I would expect from any in the Max restaurant group. It was rare and tasty and large enough to take some home for lunch the next day! I hope they have more of these specials. Next time we'll invite friends to join us!

This was a birthday celebration. We selected Max's because we received an email promotion from Max's group about a prime rib special (in reality $3 off) on the day we desired. The server was unaware of the special, but cleared it with the manager. All four in our party ordered the prime rib dinner. The piece of meat delivered to us, uniformly, was more than 1/3 a solid block of fat as well as the usual marbling typical to the cut. There was an attempt to hide the large block of fat under a large dollop of horseradish sauce. We cannot help but believe that, since we ordered the special (or because the special was even offered) a substandard piece of meat was used.

The excellence of the service was followed by the flavorful and excellence of the Prime Rib entree. The quiet atmosphere allowed for us to converse easily at our table and the ambiance of the restaurant led to a pleasant experience overall. Would definitely come back again as it is hard to find service and food quality that good.

Overall the restaurant was good, found for the price my steak was not as tender as I would expect from a restaurant that is a steak house. This is second time in last few months and both times steak was not as tender as I would expect and there was grizzly running through a couple of spots.

Had a fantastic time this evening and enjoyed craft cocktails and local dishes.
I was hosting out of town business partners and the vibe was perfect for work discussions and relaxed conversations.
The food was excellent .... we enjoyed the chicken, sea bass and pork. And we were thrilled the chef stepped out so we could thank him personally for a wonderful meal.
I would highly recommend hosting work dinners here.

The overall experience was excellent on a night that was a full house. The server was a professional and both our dinners were prepared to our satisfaction.
We understand that Valentine’s Day is a difficult night for restaurants but Max’s Tavern met the challenge with flying colors. It is one of the best restaurants in Western Mass!

We had an anniversary dinner at Max's Tavern. Prices there have increased considerably. I ordered simply grilled haddock with Brussels sprouts as a side. Presentation was surprisingly sloppy. Fish was definitely simple. Fillet was broken up into bits and unseasoned. Shaved Brussels sprouts with pancetta had too much pancetta and were too oily. My husband ordered the meatloaf and said it was fine. Food quality and presentation were average or below average for the price. We expected better from Max's , but may give it another try.

Took advantage of Max’s birthday free entree. We have been here and at other Max locations many times. The food is always top notch. Sometimes gets loud when very busy but that can be expected almost anywhere.
