Whenever the hubs and I can find one of these restaurants, we go. Love the food and the service. Hamburgers to choose from and regular meals. Wanted to try the brat burger buy wasn't sure what it was made of? Need clarification on menu. Food chain, better than the competition.

My wife and I have been there many times including other locations, one in old German Village (Downtown Columbus, OH), Dublin, OH on Sawmill, and this one in Hlliard, OH. It is always great that is why we return to Max & Erma's when we are in the area. Food, Help, Parking, location is GREAT.

It has been my favorite restaurant for a good majority of that time. Unfortunately, in the past year they have all gone downhill noticeably (I think due to... More

My wife got a burger which was awesome and I got the Cod BLT sandwich. This was a pleasant surprise as it was excellent. I would definitely recommend... More

Small menu, food looked horrible, service left a lot to be desired. Not worth the trip, pricey for what you got. Never asked if we wanted dessert yet was pushing it on everyone else.. both of us felt sick after eating

Stopped in after a long day running around Columbus to grab some food before crashing at the hotel, and the staff couldn't have been nicer! Looked over the menu and ordered a few things to take back, and they gave me the to-go drink and appetizer I asked for (to hold me over as I waited, I was exhausted!) They... More

On 5/19/16 my family and I went to Max & Erma's as a celebration and I got the fish tacos. I noticed the fish was extremely strong tasting, but didn't think that much about it because it was highly seasoned and ate it. About 45 mins later, I was in severe gastrointestinal distress, with nausea and more. It lasted the... More

Had dinner a couple of nights ago. The service was friendly and prompt. The food, while not fancy, was decent. The prices were reasonable. I would eat there again.

In 1972, Max & Erma created a fun, unique restaurant so friends and family can gather for good times and a great meal, and decorated it with eclectic artifacts and local paraphernalia. Since that day, we've been committed to providing our guests with irresistible heartland classics and friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere the whole neighborhood can enjoy. We've grown over the years, but always remain true to what makes us successful - delivering a great memorable experience so that every guest leaves with a smile. After all, Max & Erma wouldn't have it any other way.
