Max and Erma's was just right for a light bite for supper while waiting for a flight out. Good menu options from salads and soups to sandwiches and entrees and desserts. Pretty good service with a need for a bit more professionalism. Modern décor with a place to relax with a computer or book. Good prices with generous portions.

I ordered the burger with fries, when it came it was a large portion, big tasty burger but the fries were cold, my companions fries were also cold. We complained and I got cole slaw instead. The staff were ok and apologized. I personally wouldn't bother with this place if it were in my neighborhood.

We had some time before out flight so we stopped in for lunch. There were not many people waiting so we were seated and served quickly. The menu is pretty good and there is good variety. They have local beers as well and seating in a variety of areas. Reasonably priced, good food, quick service!

In this day of burger joints I will have to give kudos here at the Cincinnati northern Kentucky airport . A simple enough menu with a variety of burgers and offerings that are better than run of the mill. I had a hard time choosing which one to try. Chose the goat cheese burger which was quite good.

I went back a second time to see if the first time terrible service experience was just a fluke...it wasn't The server staff ignores you... it took me 10 minutes after my meal was done to get track down someone to get my check so I could make my flight. Food was good but wow...customer service is not a concept... More

Our group of 6 ordered a variety of dinners and each was good. One of the group asked if they had a senior discount and the server said no. When she returned our credit cards, she said she learned they did and automatically took 10% off our checks.

Slow service. Ordered cod sandwich and it came with wilted lettuce and missing the tomato. Fries were wimpy and not crisp. Disappointed considering this is normally a good chain. It appears this location needs some serious consideration for improvement. Won't go to this location again and do not recommend.

While qualities on flight home thought I would eat here. I have passed it many times in my trips in/out CVG. I ordered at 350p as of 330p no food. When I asked waitress said she'd check on my order (Swiss burger and fries).Burger was good lacked seasoning.

This place is nothing special, but there are only limited choices in this airport. I am here for breakfast. The portions are huge - for example you can not substitute egg whites for eggs in an omelet. The service was OK.
