Love the bar bites menu. Great small plates for very inexpensive price. Great drink specials also. Although it isn't on the bar bites menu, the coconut layer cake is a must!!

We have been to this restaurant several times. We are always pleased with the service and the quality of food. This place gets really crowded on Friday and Saturday nights.

The Max restaurant chain rarely disappoints with good food and service. However a small town restaurant in order to maintain interest from it's rather small pool needs to keep it fresh and new. Perhaps it's time for a little facelift?? Menu is good but unfortunately predictable. Having said that I would return but it's always nice to be pleasantly surprised.

The service, food and atmosphere at the Max chain restaurants are always consistently great. One of my favorites is Max a Mia in Avon. This restaurant has a great vibe. The servers are obviously well trained and are always accommodating. The outside dining in the summer is a nice alternative. Get the Tuscan Salad or the Fried Calamari. And whatever... More

Love everything about this restaurant! Upscale but relaxed setting, amazing food, great service, fair prices for what you get. Specialty cocktails, great wine list, just wish they had more beer on tap. Can be busy so reservations needed for popular times. My wife and I split the Tuscan salad and it was delicious. Then she had eggplant lasagna - rediculous!... More

Always love a good meal at Max a Mia. The bar is fun, and the food is creative. Service is great. The ambiance is nice, but on the louder side. I like being able to see the kitchen. Never a bad meal.
