Enjoyed an early dinner here with my wife and grandson. Our waiter Chris was phenomenal! The fresh grouper blackened was perfect and the succotash (yes, the succotash) was awesome. My wife ordered the ahi tuna, but did not care for how it was prepared. It was swapped for a burger which she loved, and no charge on the tuna. Lots... More

We dropped in with no reservation on a week night and found the restaurant slightly busy. The hostess was great, the waiter knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very good and came out quickly from the kitchen. The restaurant is decorated very well and is very comfortable / relaxing and in a wonderful area of Denver with shops and restaurants...

I went here for lunch with my wife, my brother, my sister-in-law and their two children. Both my brother and I each got the lobster bisque in a bread bowl, and it was just as good as any I've had on the east coast. I never asked my brother's opinion, but he ate the entire thing quickly, so suffice it... More

This was our first visit to Max Gill & Grill, and we will be back! We don't live close to Wash Park, but were looking for fresh oysters in the metro area... we were extremely pleased with the selection and quality of the oysters here. We also had the crab cakes & littleneck clams, both of which were delicious! We... More

We went there using a Groupon. They had Happy hour specials that we wanted to try and then order dinner. Due to BAD traffic, we got there 2 minutes before Happy Hour ended but our server hurried and put our order in. My husband wanted the $1 oyster special. They were good but small. I ordered the crab leg cluster.... More

Excellent food! Excellent service! Excellent atmosphere! Loved the 1.00 oysters during happy hour and I can't wait to go back! I recommend reservations and a nice stroll after dinner and drinks.

Had halibut that started to get that fishy taste, it was cooked OK but everything on two plates were unseasoned. The clam chowder was unexceptional, more like fishy soup that had a little clams in them. For an average of $25/plate, you can spend your money elsewhere for better food.

My husband always tells me, if they have Groupons - probably not that great. We either hit on an off day or, because it was Christmas Eve, the B team was on duty, or something..... Nothing exciting to offset the hefty $200 lunch bill for 4. The margarita I had was tasteless, may have been bottled s/s and a tad... More

We went for happy hour because my family wanted the oysters that they offer during their happy hour. They were good, I hear. I order the mussels, clams, ribs and my husband ordered wings and my daughter ordered the truffle fries. All was good but I wouldn't order the truffle fries again. No flavor although they smelled good. Amanda was... More
