Amazing Staff – I go to Max Lager's every time I am in town for the mart .
I love the Texan steak and the Max Black Beer.
I happen to have been there on Sunday night and I can say that it was extremely busy.
I have met the manager Bill several times and he has always made time time to spend a moment talking to me.He and his staff do a wonderful job everytime I am In the restaurant.
Rena, does a great job at the bar and I always feel welcome, No matter who is working.
I am always asked when I turn in my reciepts why I go to the same place everynight to eat?
They have great food, good beer and Great people.
Everyone and place has a bad day, it seems folks always take time to write the bad review, yet have little time to give a good one.
I myself have been to the restaurant more than once and rarely do I see them fail.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
I'm STILL hungry – UNBELIEVABLE! How can a restaurant run out of 75% of its menu items??!!! No pizza, no pasta, no fish, no ribs. NO PIZZA! Granted, it was 9pm on a Sunday night (we waited for an hour and a half even though we called ahead; and during that time, no one mentioned that the kitchen had been all but wiped out), but you're in the downtown area of a major convention city... You have to be prepared for big crowds, right? Guess not. Most of the servers did their best under the circumstances, but the manager - when we complained about the situation - was kind of rude: "What do you want me to do about it?" Oh, and one person at our table ordered the Bison Burger & another ordered a regular hamburger... they said they tasted exactly the same. And yes, the beers were flat.
Nothing available on the menu. – I went to there with 10 work colleagues from both New York and Chicago. We waited 90 minutes, although we had reservations and drank the beer that was agreed by all to be flat. This place was out everything - pizza dough, so no pizza, no pasta primavera, no salmon, no ribs, no guacamole for quesadillas, no sirloin steak, and I'm sure there were others. What a disappointment because we went there for the wood fired pizza touted by their logo and slogan. I would NEVER go back there again, sorry.
Not Bad, But Not Impressed – I had a steak dinner, and a friend had salmon in early January, 2009 while in Atlanta for training. The atmosphere was okay, but the meal was unimpressive. The food reminded me of a small eatery in any small town you might run across: it was palatable. However, given the many great choices in downtown Atlanta, I can't recommend this one.
So much fun! – My husband and I love this place. It is one of Atlanta's best kept secrets! If you are looking for a fun time at dinner or a great movie watching experience this place has it all.
Great Place to meet Friends – I have been coming to Max intermittently for many years and I would probably best categorize it as "upscale comfort food." The decor and frankly, most of the menu, are pretty forgettable, but for me, it's all about the service.
Every time we come here it feels like going to visit a friend. All the wait staff knows us and they are always accommodating - not JUST to us, but I see it with everyone they serve.
Great place to meet friends, but I wouldn't really recommend it for a date restaurant because, well - REALLY, it's a neighborhood joint. If my date was that cheap, then there 'aint gonna BE a second date, y'know what I'm sayin'?
Oh yeah, and I'm also rating this place high for the fact that every time I eat here I get so incredibly stuffed I feel like a cow when leaving, yet miraculously wake up the next morning feeling as skinny as a supermodel. Coincidence? I think not.
Don't knock it till you try it. – Look, I go to Max Lagers at least once a week because I work downtown and would consider it one of my favorite places to go around Downtown Atlanta. Maybe this guy's server was just having a bad day, but as often as I go, the service has been consistently good and the food is very good. I usually sit up at the bar for lunch, but my coworkers and I have gone to Max Lagers for happy hour too because they have great beers and the food is good. I hate bad service just as much as anyone else, and wouldn't go to Max Lager's as often as I do if the service wasn't consistently good. Judge it for yourself, but coming from a regular, I love this place.
Worst service – This has to have been the worst service i have had in a very long time.I was in town for work and stayed at the hyatt and saw this place and thought to check it out,BIG MISTAKE.I first order a drink called a max margarita it was an average drink tasted like a margarita.Then i waitied for my server who kept walking by but did'nt ask if i was ready to order,I finally got her to come take my order 10 wings as a starter and the ribs as my entree,also asked for some bread with my meal because i saw other tables with some on there tables.I never got the bread, wings came with my meal about 35-40 minutes later the server never said sorry or try to make things better.she acted like she just wanted to get me out of there.ALL in all my food got cold the wings were under cooked still a little pink in the middle.The staff did'nt seem friendly and the decor is like eating in a very old warehouse.If your every in atlanta aviod this place,I asked i local if he every goes to max lagers,he said that he and friends had a bad time there about 6months ago and would not return.
Perfect Place for Rehearsal Dinner – Thank you Max Lager's for being so accommodating for our rehearsal dinner on June 20th! We had more people show up than expected and the staff did the most wonderful job taking care of us and were so pleasant throughout the entire night (even when we were being difficult). Every single guest loved Max Lager's from the food to atmosphere. It was truly perfect for Brad and me.
We'll definitely be back and want to let everyone know what a great experience we had.
Great food & Service – I was in Atlanta for business recently. I was staying at the Hyatt near Max Lagers and saw their ad in the Delta inflight magazine. Myself and my coworker ate there three nights in a row. I am a very picky restaurant goer and was very impressed with the quality of food and the level of service that we received from your servers, especially Lisa. I will be sure to visit Max Lagers next time I'm in Atlanta. I have friends in the ATL metro area and will be sure to tell them about Max Lager's. Keep up the good work.
