Dining with friends this time - this place never disappoints. The food is very tasty each time and your palate can detect quality ingredients. Parking is diagonal to the restaurant. There is bar section in this establishment and dining room. Retro decor is very appealing.

This was the second time dining at Max's. We took our mothers out to dinner before a seeing a show in Philly. The atmosphere is so inviting, the biggest problem with the menu is picking only one entree because the food is delicious. This has become our go-to before heading into the city. It's a 45 minute drive from our... More

Been here a few times before. Never disappoints. Started with the seafood chowder - hot and delicious! Had the little necks claims casino, a little salty but no filler and good. I had the pecan crusted salmon and my husband had the Chilean Sea Bass - both very good. I had the Snowflake cocktail which was sweet like I like... More

So if I were going to create a "Mount Rushmore" of restaurants in SJ, Max's HAS to be included. It's always been one of my faves. Stopped in today and had New Orleans chowder and jambalaya. The food came out almost immediately and was piping hot, and tasted like the chef made it onsite. If u like New Orleans style... More

This was my first time at Max's. I love seafood so was looking forward to it. The crab dip app was very good, but I think they could have done better than untoasted pita wedges for dipping. Crab cakes were great. Not much filler, and seasoning was just right. Potatoes and veggies served with cakes were nothing great. Jambalaya was... More

After not visiting this location for almost 30 years we went back as a nostalgic treat. The tavern and restaurant has been completely rebuilt to resemble its original decor from the early 1900's. Entrees were lacking. My 6 large scallops were served on a bed of lettuce and cabbage. Their were no sides offered with my entree, not even a... More

Beautiful, well-preserved corner tavern / restaurant. I loved the interior architectural design and the woodwork throughout. Table was comfy, patrons spaced nicely and quiet so you can enjoy food and conversation. Loved the ratatouille served along with bread basket. So yummy. Flatbread had perfect amount of garlic and mozzarella. Stuffed shrimp was excellent. Mahi was a tad overcooked but side... More

The food was well prepared and presented. I wanted soft-shells done differently than the special (it was a paella and I just had paella last weekend). I requested sauteed and chef's decision on the preparation. Soft-shelled crab with linguine was great. Our server was not too attentive at times but redeemer herself with a fussy eater at our table.
