We really do not enjoy eating in. It seems like they are almost always short staffed. They took our favorite shrimp and pasta off of the menu, so I usually just get the mozzarella chicken sandwich with tomato and basil to go. It comes with a fresh side of mixed greens and balsamic dressing. We make a habit of ordering... More

We knew that Max and Erma's (Monroeville) would provide a good and dependable meeting place for friends.

This is a chain restaurant that specializes in burgers. We probably eat here about once a month and have never had a bad meal. They don't take reservations and the place is always busy, so there are lots of people who agree with my assessment. If you like a little spicy, try the tortilla soup.

Burgers, Fish and Chips and soups were all good. Atmosphere is more chain-like than you would hope but everything was good.

Different rows of seating feature different types of lighting over the tables - ours was a bare bulb with no shade that glared in our eyes for the entire visit. Our Spinach Cheese Dip arrived barely warm - the cheese had... More

At happy hour the drinks are cheaper, and the appetizers are half off. You can even make a meal out of them, and take home your entrée for lunch the next day. This chain gives back to the local community, so it is all good.

Food • Friends • Family • Fun In 1972, Max & Erma created a fun, unique, gourmet hamburger restaurant you could take friends & family to, decorating it with quirky artifacts & local paraphernalia. Since that day, we've been committed to providing our guests with delicious all-American food & friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere the whole neighborhood can enjoy. We've grown over the years, but always remain true to what made us successful-delivering a great guest experience. After all, Max & Erma wouldn't have it any other way.
