I've eaten at Max's Opera Cafe in SF, & Max's Deli locations on various places this Max's is right up there with any other location. I've attended events & private parties here as well as food with just a few friends. A pleasant restaurant with friendly competent staff. I have a hard time getting away from the Pastrami Reuben as... More

We have eaten several times over the last year at Max's and wanted to tout it's charms and especially the friendly staff. Max's in Auburn is a restaurant attached to the Holiday Inn and if you were not staying here you might miss it. However, having said that it is clear that locals know this place and frequent it as...

Had lunch at Max's today. Excellent reuben sandwich, and the chocolate dipped coconut macaroon was to die for! Service was superb,

Look behind Auburn's IN-And-OUT and you'll find MAX'S just off I-80 next to Holiday Inn. Kinda reminds me of an old steak house with it's décor, varied dining menu, mid range prices, good service, and easy on/off to Hwy 80. Had some nice dinners and lunches there. Full bar also

Great food paired with great wines, what more could you ask for. There was food in abundance well matched to the varietals from Fawnridge. The next morning we had a good breakfast at Max's and checked out their sandwich menu which looked super.

Whether you eat Sunday brunch, lunch or dinner, you will NOT be disappointed. Be sure to have an eclair or take one home for later. Debbie, our server for two dinners, was excellent and gracious. We did miss the former hostess, Suzy, who was great too. Stay at this Holiday Inn attached to Max's and your stay will be the... More

I simply love Max's. It is a clean and cozy restaurant tucked away behind the hotel. I consider it a best kept secret. The food is delicious and the service is friendly. What more can you say?!

The menu is quite varied and they currently offer a complimentary tasting of wine probably in hopes that you will order a glass. We did and it was a substantial pour at $8.00 a glass. The salmon was cooked to perfection with a nice light sauce of dill. I substituted mashed potatoes and green beans for sides that I wasn't... More
