My wife and I were looking for a local place to eat after a day at Chicago Botanic Garden. This place was a good call. The restaurant is a little dated and the seating is close but that is what gives this place it’s charm....More

Two of us for dinner before a movie. Kathleen greeted us, seated us and waited on us. Excellent service. The deli was half a corned beef sandwich. Plentiful and delicious, The breakfast was a veggie omellette. Excellent as well.

Max's Deli and Restaurant in Highland Park has a reputation for serving the best bagels and corned beef in the area. I'm not going to argue the point. Bagels with cream cheese isn't my thing. I'm not an expert on corned beef, either, but Max's...More
