It had been quite a while since I had been to Max's and now I'm mad that I had been away so long! Our table was ready upon arrival, our server Big Hugo was phenomenal, the support staff were very attentive and the food was SUPERB! The place was packed and bustling with activity which made for great vibes. Will most certainly be back, sooner versus later.

Have excellent fried chicken that is very meaty. But the energetic crowd and seating arrangements make it somewhat noisy.

Great brunch with girlfriends. Max’s is always delicious, has a great atmosphere and crowd, mimosas priced from reasonable to extreme so you can go either way. Service wonderful and as someone who has celiac disease (medically cannot have gluten) always appreciate the great selection and care they take! And we were being watched over by Baby Yoda!

We were celebrating a birthday and got the pleasure of having Big Lou as our waiter and he was amazing. The Fried chicken and Chicken Fried Lobster was amazing. Max’s never disappoints and is always a fun time.

Dined here to celebrate a good friend’s belated birthday. While the food and service were exceptional, the fact that we the guests were packed indoors so close to each other while there is a few COVID variants in the country.

It would be my hope that instead of looking at packing people in just to over charge for chicken and waffles, space diners out over the hour vs allowing walk ins and so many reservations.

The food was great, as always! We had the HRW menu. The pork belly with apple slaw was so tasty. The perfect combo of sweet, salty, and tangy. The fried chicken was perfect, as usual, and the buttermilk pie was great!!
