A large variety of dishes, drinks and desserts. We met there several times as a group of retirees and it is very friendly.

We ate here after touring the Basketball Hall of Fame. Our server was excellent, and my husband really liked his burger. I was a little disappointed in my barbecue, as the quality of meat was less than great.More

This restaurant is conveniently located near the Basketball Hall of Fame. Great food and atmosphere and a lively bar scene. Linen napkins and well-trained staff make this one of the area's nicest dining venues.

Good food, but POOR value for your money. Service sucks! When our hot rolls arrived, I asked (Catlin) our server for more butter, she said we have enough and left. We could NOT get her attention for over 10 min. When we did I asked...More

Probably one of the best steaks that I have had in a while. The staff was attentive and the wait for our main entree was not all that long.

They have lost one of the best suchef’s around! So needless to say they’ve lost their shine! Going for drinks in the bar is safe:)More

Good, if expensive, lunch at restaurant attached to basketball hall of fame. Good variety in menu and good beer selection. Food was delivered quickly and well prepared, if unspectacular.

Due to road construction getting here can be hard. The food is very good as are the portions. Prices tend to be on the high side. Outside of my mothers, Hilga`s meatloaf is the BEST.

My wife and I stopped there recently for lunch and were not disappointed. The menu offers something for everyone at a reasonable price. The food was tasty and delicious. It's a place we will return to soon.

Visited Max's several years ago when it first opened. Ordered three different items on the menu. They were out of all three. Fast forward to 2017 not much has changed. Went there for the prime rib, one of the signature items listed on the menu....More
