Went here during a stay with a relative at IU Hospital North. It was easily spotted as the lights were on that evening, and not a lot else was found to be open. There was no wait as it was a Tuesday evening. There was...More

My husband and I met our daughter and her boyfriend at Max and Erma's because it was located next to our hotel (Hilton Garden Inn). The food was GREAT! This was my first time eating at a Max & Erma's and I would certainly eat...More

Stopped for an early dinner so we just ordered sandwiches, and salads. My wife enjoyed her salad and I liked my burger. Our server was friendly and fast. Fair priced for this type of establishment.

Very nice hotel tucked away at the end of a strip mall. Went there on a Sunday afternoon & was pretty empty. Food was good (a little pricey) but we liked M&A’s in the past and it’s always good.

Out team ate here after soccer games. Service was OK but menu and food very blah. Good reminder of why I avoid these lower end national chains if at all possible.

Although the turkey burger is quite good, the place and staff are completely dead. The staff are zombies. Zero personality. Less than interested in what they're doing. No emotion. No personality. Maybe it was zombie night? One waiter actually started vacuuming around me while I...More

In 1972, Max & Erma created a fun, unique restaurant so friends and family can gather for good times and a great meal, and decorated it with eclectic artifacts and local paraphernalia. Since that day, we've been committed to providing our guests with irresistible heartland classics and friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere the whole neighborhood can enjoy. We've grown over the years, but always remain true to what makes us successful - delivering a great memorable experience so that every guest leaves with a smile. After all, Max & Erma wouldn't have it any other way.
