"I usually like Max's for a casual meal. I like the patty melt and the cabbage soup etc., but this time I ordered an old favorite, New Joe Special, but it arrived cold and no salt had been used so it was very bland and the spinach and eggs were not well blended. I gave up and ate some toast. We had to keep hailing our waiter whenever we needed anything. However, I probably will go to max's again, but not on a Sunday."

"Food quality is very good served with extremely generous portions. You can never go wrong at one of the many Max's restaurants. At this particular location service gets a lower rating as we found our server not to be as attentive as other occasions we've dined in the past. It may have just been an "off" day for our server, but would not hesitate to dine again at this Max's location. Not that it is the fault of the restaurant, but know that the parking spaces in their parking lot are extremely tight, so be careful where you park when dining there."

"We had been there before they closed last yr, but EVERYTHING was terrible, especially the food.
The service wasn't any better. My friend said he wouldn't go bacl either.
I took home a small key lime pie, that was ok.

"I made a reservation for Max's the night before Labor Day and we called to ask if we could come two hours earlier than planned because our hike took shorter than expected! Our group of 10 enjoyed great service, fun fellowship, and delectable desserts. The Reuben (with pastrami) was especially good. We had a great time!"

"Not impressed. Was expensive, did not find the menu selections to my liking, My meal was not prepared well (chicken marsala, part of it overcooked in thin parts - thus this area was overcooked and stringy and not edible, the potatoes and vegetables were not hot when served, nor very flavorful. Found it very expensive for it being in the midst of a Safeway shopping center. Would not return again."

"Great place to relax, get a great salad or whatever you can dream of....they will have it on the menu. There is a great selection and you can always find something to satisfy that inner hunger:) And the service is always sweet and cheerful.....just the way I like it!"

"Celebrated my sister's birthday here - a party of seven, we made a reservations and were seated at a large booth in the back, upon arrival. Max's has a large menu with all kinds of delicious appetizers, salads, main courses and DESSERT! After a round of cocktails - the lemon drops were fabulous, we ordered dinner. This time I had the beet salad, while others order hamburgers, a patty melt, as well as the chicken pot pie. We were all pleased with the food - the temperature of each plate was right and there were NO complaints. I shared the key lime pie and my sister was treated to a delicious hot fudge sundae, which had a burning candle on top, with complementary singing by the staff."

"This diner-like spot was totally acceptable for getting some food. They accidentally put sardines in my wife's omelet instead of chorizo, which was awful, but they were quick to make it right and the server was very kind. The food was totally acceptable, but nothing special. If we happen to be really hungry nearby at some point in the future, we might go back, but given the proliferation of better options, it's pretty unlikely."

"I think Maxs must have a new owner, or something! Things have changed for the worse since we used to come herre. The grilled chicken used for the salads was overcooked & dry on everyone's salad. Some of the lettuce was tired. The only excelllent thing was our fabulous server who tried to make everything right."
