Great home made ice cream. Perfect for the warm day we had in April. Long line, but the line moved fairly quickly.

A must stop for ice cream lovers! Some of the best I have had. It is pricey and it's a small scoop but worth every last spoonful. I had the chocolate coconut and my son had the butter almond. The butter almond was amazing.

This is the perfect place to stop for ice cream on an afternoon out or after dinner. Max has a range of flavors, all very, very good. It is more expensive than a chain, but well worth it for the ice cream you get. To...More

I really enjoyed Max's. We actually enjoyed the taste of his ice cream as opposed to Serendipity in Georgetown. Can't wait to go again.
