This is the best Max's I've been to hands-down. The serivce is so much better than at any of the other ones. Go for dinner to hear some great singers as well. It's crowded and loud, but that just adds to the charm. Good food, a bit expensive, but worth it.

I love Max's the portion for all meals especially desserts are HUGE.

I heard they recently changed their menu so all the great old favorites aren't necessarily there. It is convenient while shopping at Stanford Mall and they have a nice bar.

Max's chain of restaurants are one of my favorite to get great sandwiches, salads and soups. I'm a big lover of soups and their russian cabbage soup is excellent. They also have a very good Matzo ball soup. Their portions are so large and generous. They also have great bread rolls. I always eye their desserts, but never have room to order one. I suggest ordering one slice for a party of 4, cuz there is enough to feed all of you!

I know this is going to upset some of my family members, but oh, well! I used to like this restaurant, but that may have been in the times that I enjoyed fatty, fried foods. I'm a picky eater, so I often measure a restaurant on the ability to interest me in several different meals. While the menu seems good, don't be fooled... not everything tastes as good as it sounds. The nail in the coffin for this place for me was the fact that I had a bad ice cream sundae... who screws that up?

A nice place!

Max's used to have candles on the tables. A true story: my family was being served by a nice young waitress with hip-length hair. During the specials, my mother started hitting the waitress with her menu. Her hair had lit on fire.

Be careful around those candles.

The restaurant is a pretty nice place but I wouldn't say it stands out by itself - but the opera-singing wait staff make it a fun experience. Good place to take visitors.

PROS: Opera
CONS: Not everyone likes it

It's a great place to eat with kids or as a group. The food's simple and very tasty and the service, except at their busiest is usually very fast.

Editorial from

Max's includes a number of restaurants and a central commissary and does its best to emulate a New York deli. The sandwiches are several inches high. The daily blue plate special features home-style dishes like meatloaf and mashed…
