The staff is looking very rough. Most are overweight and should wear a uniform that is not a t-shirt and blue jeans. The manager looked very rough as well needed to shave and needed a hair trim. I did not see any staff that looked neat.

We use to go to Max and Erma's regularly, but over he last few years, there has been a lot of changing the menu and raising the prices. It's not been a good experience the last few trips.

The burgers were slightly pink and we all ordered them well done. The fries were skimpy, come on people. Service was pleasant and attentive. Should serve larger portions of fries, seemed like a kids portion.

We are pleased each time we go to this Max & Emma's. Last night the manager brought me my Fish & Chips with one of the filets broken up so he made sure I got another piece without asking him for one. That was impressive. I even like the cold slaw with this dish. We will return again.

I love this restaurant. I had chicken tenders and fries, and they were great. I was so happy to go to Max and Irma's since our local ones closed. My husband had a Philly cheese steak, also wonderful. We will return if we get a chance.

The menu offers something for everyone. We had a very attentive waitress. With another couple and one ordered steak and one ordered salad. Both were happy with their meals. The cookies for dessert are really good. Baked fresh and they come out warm! Yum!

My husband and I had the pick 2 meals, which were great and priced well at $6.99. Love their chicken tortilla soup. Our waitress was very good as well: pleasant and good service.

This USED to be a descent place to eat, but since the remodel it has really gone down hill. We went recently but only because the weather was nice allowing us to sit outside and order a burger. The inside of this place smells funny, the wait staff is hit or miss on friendliness and consistency. Overall the experience now... More

Food was good worth the money, however service needs attention. Special orders were not followed. Would recommend the burgers and cookies.
