Nice resturant. They offer cornbeef sandwichs and cornbeef or pastrami dinners plus other items . They have a lot of Jewish food which is very good. Good service and a wonderful bakery which they make their own deserts.

Have been to the original Max's, the Max's at SFO, this one just doesn't measure up. Had the reuben sandwich which cost around $15, meat was tough, service was slow, should have gone to InOut next door.More

Horrible service! Menu is nothing like shown on website. Waitress was rude and not helpful at all. She simply said the menu was updated a month ago, maybe I should try a different sandwich shop and walked away, never returning to take our order. I...More

I ordered the filet minon and it was over cooked but was still a good choice. The bar was not crowded but the bartender was kept busy, she was excellent when she waited on us. We highly recommend this place.

A very nice setting that easily accommodated our group of seven. Quick service and a good selection (including vegan) pleased all the diners. Their Jambalaya Fettuccine was excellent.
