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 .

Very good service and food. We do not live nearby, but on visits we find Max's our go to place. We find new gems each visit. The chopped salad is delicious, as is the onion soup. I found the meatloaf a bit dry, but everything else we have tried was perfect, including the bananas foster dessert. It is delicious and... More

Stopped here for lunch and were surprised that they have brunch menu as well. I had the Toscana salad, while my husband and son had Caesar salad and a burger, they said both were very good. My other son had a kids meal and I couldn't be happier w/the healthy options offered. He had a turkey sandwich and it was... More

Two stars because our server, Jess, was awesome. Everything else was disappointing. Two of us ordered dinner. Calamari was greasy and nothing special, Martha's Vineyard Oysters were good. Strip Streak with 'loaded' baked potato for a side looked like something served at a diner. Steak was chalky and potato was cold. Double cut pork chop with BBQ Hoisin sauce was... More

Imaginative dishes, beautifully prepared and presented, with smart service in comfortable dining environment. Exceptional cuisine - but not for the routine burger eaters. A very special treat, for which a price has to be paid!

Came here for dinner one night. Had very good steak. Their wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.

We stop here for lunch by the way up North. This action of food was very good, and the service was extremely enthusiastic and friendly. I would definitely stop here again.

Another Sunday afternoon looking for a delicious lunch. Well, enter mediocrity. Of course, the Maximus IPA was awesome!! Calamari was over cooked... That went back..... second one was better. I ordered the fish and chips.... actually that was really good!! My "chef" like wife ordered the chopped salad.( she has enjoyed that before). Well it didn't have the usual sherry... More

I've eaten at Maxs many times and had fabulously prepared meals. This time, my meal was horrible! I was there for a company holiday party, 20 people on Dec 7, but the rest of the restaraunt was far from full. Service was, as usual, wonderful. I had crab cakes and Caesar salad to start, both very good. My entrée was... More
