Good food variety, friendly service, and generous portions. Been here with adults and children and none were disappointed. Good location if meeting people coming to/from SFO. Good parking.

Close to my hotel and SFO airport. I stopped for lunch and ordered the chicken pot pie (lunch portion). It was huge! The service was friendly and attentive without being too much. The decor is reminiscent of a rat pack NY deli.

Maxs has very good food and great portions. The service is not very good and the prices are a bit high. The corned beef and pastrami are great and the desserts are even better!!

This was a little gem we found. We had great friendly service. You get plenty of food too. The matzo ball soup was fresh. We also tried the California chicken melt and pastrami sandwich - both were very good. We would definitely go back.

Really good food with big portions. Menu has various options with many choices, and lots of comfort foods, and lots of great desserts. Max's is a SF favorite and you will not be disappointed and you will not break the budget dining here.

This is a great little place for Happy Hour or dinner - as long as you want lots of food. For me, just the two pulled pork tacos on the Happy Hour Menu were plenty, and they were very yummy, too. The prices are super...More
