We were here on a Friday evening. Bar service was excellent as well as our table service. Food was good - hot and quickly served. Great atmosphere.

This happy Bar and Grill is attached to The Holiday Inn by the airport and is very convenient for those staying in the Holiday Inn for a next-day flight. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Holly served us in the dining room. She did a wonderful job. Josh served us when we moved to the bar side to get closer... More

I did not like this restaurant. Linen was very worn and only had 1 person working after lunch time. I ordered a veggie burger which was a frozen pattie from a grocery store. Service was slow and the fries were heavily salted and not edible. I will never repeat. The sever was very polite but outside of that I couldn't... More

Close to all airport hotels, this restaurant offers a complete menu of pub fare and high end steak entrees. Food is tasty and the service is excellent. Waitress was very helpful. By the way, the specials are varied and reasonably priced. This is a go-to place when travelling via Buffalo Airport.

We just loved the food in this place. The service was good and wait time was very reasonable. Also were impressed with the value of the meal. It wasn't very expensive.

We ran into Max's on our way to the airport on a Friday night. The place was deserted except for the bar. When we arrived a couple who had been trying to get food at the bar commented to the waitress on the lack of service. We opted for a booth. Only a house Chardonnay...Yellow Tail. Ugh. Our nachos, requested... More

We have always enjoyed the atmosphere at Max's...'50's music and décor. The menu is large and the food is reasonably priced. They used to have the best fries ever...hand-cut fries...but we were very disappointed to be served just regular old fries you can get in any establishment. The burger was delicious and huge. The regular size comes with 2 patties... More

We were staying right by Max's & the reviews were pretty good so we decided to try it. We walked in at about 2:00 nobody was in the restaurant eating & after a few minutes waiting an employee walked along the back of the restaurant & never even said "hello." We left.
