Max's is apparently a popular venue for couples on a date. Everyone seemed to know someone else who was dining here. Very friendly vibe. Quaint, reserved and vying for a more upscale crowd. Pastas, Salads, Wood Oven Pizza and Steaks make up the core of the Italian themed venue. An extensive wine list and cocktails assortment as well as spiked... More

Serves liquor. Varied menu including brick oven pizza. Good pastas and seafood. Go there ever so often and always satisfied. A bit pricey for the offerings.

I like this place a lot! Pizza is terrific. Crust is from local bakery. Outdoor gathering area for food and fun. Have been there about half dozen times.. never a bad meal and servers are always friendly.

My husband and I were in town for a family New Year dinner, we arrived on Friday before Saturday's New Year's Eve. The menu was limited because of the coming holiday but still extensive enough that we both found food that was delicious and satisfying. My husband got the brick oven fired sausage pizza--it was prepared perfectly with a thin... More

Great bar,year around outside seating, good wine selection. They have the best steak in Paducah and their Salmon salad is delicious. Dress is business casual but you see everything. Good idea to make reservations.

It had been awhile since we had been to Max's and decided to go there with several friends before a concert. We made reservations and the next day Max's called to suggest that we make our reservation for 30 minutes earlier. They suggested this because they knew we had plans to attend the concert afterwards and they were concerned we... More

Max's was recommended and we really enjoyed it. I had the tuna, seared, medium rare. We had a few requests and the waiter was accommodating. Salads were fresh, dinner was served as soon as we we were finished with the salads. Creme brulé was our dessert. We enjoyed it all.

We had an early dinner here and loved it. The food was good and the server was great. Downtown Paducah is so fun and typically not too crowded.

My wife and I stopped here just a few evenings ago. Like many of downtown eateries, the location's great and the atmosphere is cool. I really enjoyed the fleur de lis theme throughout and the rustic brick walls. Service was about average. But the food was VERY good! It is, however, a tad on the pricey side on many of... More
