Great food. Everything made from scratch in house. Fish and chips were fresh, light and tasty. Biscuits and gravy spicy and tasty. Friendly service. Intimate setting (small). A must try.

We just had dinner at Max's and loved everything! We started with their Caesar salad, then shared a Charisco pizza-which was insane with flavors. Then I had their African Chicken and my wife had the Goat Curry. Sharing bites, we both thought each entree was...More

Really comfortable place. Very small and passed it by many times before stopping in recently. Had a really delicious goat curry and my wife had the rack of lamb. The curry had a depth that you only find from really great Indian cooks and typically...More

Quaint restaurant on front street. Diverse food options. Unique food options that have a range in outcomes. Some good and others average. Best for informed dinners

Those who have reviewed Max's and complained about the high prices have a point. But you absolutely get what you pay for, and the owner/chef recreates some mighty fine dishes from her native Goa. Our party of four was shoe-horned into the back of the...More
