Dining out can be a challenge if you have a gluten allergy and also a nut allergy. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the gluten free menu. He was more than happy to check with chef when he wasn't certain about ingredients. The meals were delicious and the flourless chocolate cake was amazing. The service was outstanding and we were...

Dinning is always upscale, yet it is a fun place to go to see friends and be seen by others. The food is top notch.

My wife and I were on date night and chose Max's Tavern. We are fans of all of the restaurants in the Max family but the tavern is my personal favorite. Has something for everyone and a fabulous raw bar. It's not a cheap date but well worth it!

Max's is a pleasant, comfortable, and friendly place with a good menu combining both traditional and more imaginative dishes, and a commendably diverse selection of beers and wine. We really liked the well-designed bar (which includes small tables along a bank of windows for those who'd prefer less hubbub and more intimacy). It was cozy and welcoming, with just the... More

We each had dined here years ago on business, and were in for Sunday lunch today, meeting an old friend we hadn't seen in 25 years. Max's made a great location and lunch experience for such a festive occasion. Noon reservations were promptly honored. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Our order was quite simple. No special beverages other than water... More

My husband and I chose Max's because if the reviews and they were right! Great atmosphere, wonderful waitstaff and really excellent steaks (slighty too salty, but still delicious). I had a side of Grafton Smoked Cheese Grits (which they were kind enough to substitute as I LOVE grits) and my husband chose the Mac and Cheese which he said was... More

I really like Max Tavern and have had many great dinners here . They can have off nights however 9 out of 10 times will be excellent choice. Shrimp Tempura app should be on menu all times and steaks here are best in area . Seafood towers have been hit or miss with substitution depending on business and demand .

Thank Tim C
