Fanno Creek pub has some of the best beers and some great food. The menu may not be extensive, but the scottish egg and the hot wings are fabulous! We have been going since they opened and we recommend them to everyone! It's small, family

This is a very nice brew pub. They have several beers that they make, the one I tried was tasty. The sandwiches are awesome. I particularly like the mahi-mahi sandwich. They make their own chips too and they are good. Inside has the

Atmosphere is very casual. You can park your bike next to the patio. Kids and pooches are welcome too.

This is my favorite place in downtown Tigard. The patio is the best on a sunny day. They recently remodeled and expanded the patio too.

The beer is great, and if you're going for the first time, I'd recommend the sampler. The food is traditional brewery cuisine. I've enjoyed everything I've ordered. Big portions. I love that they have early happy hour on the weekends.

We moved here from Brooklyn in Feb and were so happy to come across this place as it reminded of restaurants back in the city with the outdoor seating near the sidewalk. It just gives you a better feel for the community you live in and

A great, unassuming brewpub in Tigard's tiny downtown. We'd had their beers before at various local brew fests, and were always pleasantly surprised. The IPA was very tasty, lots of hop flavor and a complex mouthfeel, yet only 5.5% ABV.

I have to say that I was completely shocked to see that this pub only had a 2 star rating! Reading these reviews, it doesn't even sound like the same place! Max's has a great, local pub atmosphere. It is a fantastic place to go with

I was pretty disappointed with this place. I can't believe I lived in Tigard and never went to it. Perhaps, it was because I was subconsciously avoiding it.

First, let me tell you that one of the ladies that works there, is really rude and automatically presumes you're her friend and calls you by your first name as soon as she finds that out. She must have overheard one of my friends say it. Hmm...hello? Do I know you? That's creepy. Could you please keep your distance and stop harassing us every minute? We are not "working" on our food, we are eating it.

But let's look past that. Food? check. Beer? check. Loud? Check. Must have had something to do with the number of kids that were running around.

Anyways, with a semi satisfied feeling we get ready to pay. It turns out that this place does not print an itemized check for you AND on top of that they add an 18% gratuity automatically. How nice ! Being called by name is a little creepy on its own but add the cost of a burger and a beer to $18...Why do I feel ripped off? I am all for supporting local businesses but only if they are competitive in their pricing, not outrageous.

I guess some places speak for themselves. Will never go there again.

Pros: beer selection

Cons: Very unfriendly place

I am so happy to finally be able to write a review. Max's has been open for at least two years now, maybe longer, and I had such a horrific experience there that I periodically check city search to see if I can post a review about it....now I can. I was super excited when Max's opened up because the Brewmaster, Max, had a different place by Fryer Tuck's with amazing beer. I would go there and chat it up with him and try all the yummy beer. When he opened his restaurant I was really looking forward to the beer and the food. Oh my god what a huge disappointment. The beer is NOT the same, the food sucked, and worst of all the wait staff accused several people in our party of trying to skip out on the check, even after we showed her receipts for their beer and food. The server had closed out the bills herself! She followed us out of the restaurant yelling accusations at us! The owner came out to calm her down, and then took her side! Even after he saw the receipts. We ended up leaving after a 20 minute conversation with the owner, but he still didn't believe my friends had paid. I called the restaurant and left a message for Max to tell him what happened, and he never called back. I have not been back since, and frankly I'm shocked the place is still in business. Why do people go there for crappy beer, crappy food, screaming kids, and rude service?

Pros: the beer of the past

Cons: the new max's

I originally wrote this review awhile ago so I am editing it. This place now has a 2 star rating vs. my original 3 stars. The staff is not as attentive, the place is noiser (why the screaming kids, blaring TV's and music all at the same time??)

We have been going to Max's since it opened. and The atmosphere is rather odd - though they did finally get rid of some of the lights. It had been way too bright for a pub.

I don't understand the kid area. We try to sit as far away as possible. Maybe there should be a section of seating specifically for families with young kids?

Pros: good beer, burgers

Cons: kids, noise, other items on the menu aren't good

.

Downtown Tigard is a wasteland of decaying old buildings. There was some hope that a neighborhood pub would revitalize part of the area and people were willing to give Max's a chance and then some.

Their burgers were good but the remainder of the menu ranged from soggy (pizza) to bland (salads) and the staff and the screaming kids made us finally give up. Tigard has no good restaurants. Maybe Tigard just doesn't have enough good diners willing or able to spend money on something other than McDonald's.

Max's is a brew pub that, for some unknown reason, also has a playground set up inside. If you like your adult bar smothered in screaming kids running around the tables and throwing things then Max's is the alcoholic version of Chuckie Cheese and may be just the thing for you.

If you prefer your brew pubs to be adult affairs then avoid Max's like the plague.

The service started off being friendly when the place first opened but has deteriorated to being outright rude today.

After going there for lunches and dinners and trying to give them our money to keep them open we have finally given up on Max's. Their wait staff has been openly rude and often just indifferent and we will not give Max's another chance.

Pros: Good burgers

Cons: Location, decor, staff and the rest of the menu

I've gone there numerous times since they have opened and it has been fun to watch Max's evolve from a new restaurant with growing pains into a great, wonderful place to dine and visit with friends. They have a great little play area for kids that keeps them pretty entertained. They also have a nice comfy couch in the front of the restaurant to relax as well as plenty of seating in the front, back and outside when the weather is nice. It's a great neighborhood place and their menu has really grown since they first opened. I would highly recommend this place. The only downside is that service is slow sometimes, I think because of insufficient staffing, not because the staff doesn't give a hoot. And slow service would not be a problem for us if we didn't have small children but with kids you don't have as much time to wait...unfortunately.
