We enjoyed our visit very much. The food was very good, the 1/2 priced whiskey was a nice treat. The happy hour oysters were mushy and not fresh. Loved the service...however the restaurant was very noisy up front. We sat in the back to avoid the noise. To be fair we were there at happy hour.

There are several piece of perfection at Max, and the people appear to be working feverishly to make it even better. If you like oysters, there's a daily happy hour for $1/each. There's a terrific side patio, a nice bar area. Not much to complain about, other than the tab can grow if one doesn't keep one eye own the... More

During happy hour the oysters are so affordable we each had a dozen. They were fresh and delicious. I ordered the whole lobster which was cut apart with a beautiful presentation. My daughter had the surf and turf which she thoroughly enjoyed. The atmosphere is casual and friendly and the staff was very attentive. A great evening sitting by the... More

Enjoyed an early dinner here with my wife and grandson. Our waiter Chris was phenomenal! The fresh grouper blackened was perfect and the succotash (yes, the succotash) was awesome. My wife ordered the ahi tuna, but did not care for how it was prepared. It was swapped for a burger which she loved, and no charge on the tuna. Lots... More

We dropped in with no reservation on a week night and found the restaurant slightly busy. The hostess was great, the waiter knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very good and came out quickly from the kitchen. The restaurant is decorated very well and is very comfortable / relaxing and in a wonderful area of Denver with shops and restaurants...

I went here for lunch with my wife, my brother, my sister-in-law and their two children. Both my brother and I each got the lobster bisque in a bread bowl, and it was just as good as any I've had on the east coast. I never asked my brother's opinion, but he ate the entire thing quickly, so suffice it... More
