My wife and I stopped at Max's for Friday night dinner. We are not from Pittsburgh so we wanted to try a restaurant that we could not enjoy in our home town. Food: We each got the Einlauf Soup for an appetizer (very good dumplings)....More

It’s off the beaten trail - which I think works to it’s advantage. You walk in and it looks like you would expect in the bar area, a dozen or so barstools with a full bar. Patrick seems to know all the local and runs...More

I've had good meals at Max's before, so I was very disappointed in this visit. I ordered the bratwurst dinner with 2 sides: vegetable of the day (green beans) and my much-anticipated spatzle. The green beans were good. The bratwurst was fair, neither good nor...More

The place is quaint but that’s all it’s has going for it. The food is something you’d get in a high school cafeteria. Large portions of bland food. My potato pancakes were cold and not crisp. The sad thing is that they could have been...More

Outstanding German Food with an extensive menu; Service was excellent! Located on Pittsburgh's Northside. Several dining areas besides the bar with TV screens to watch NFL/NHL sports. Also serves Sunday Brunch. Penn Brewery in nearby Deutchtown has the best Oktoberfest music! Max's Allegheny Tavern has...More

Ate here decades ago and returned recently while driving through PA. The ambience was comfortably familiar - Max has remained close to it's roots. The bread starter with interesting condiments was a great indicator of the caliber of the rest of the meal. My single...More

Was introduced to this restaurant by chance. Our long time friend had a layover in Pittsburgh and invited us to dinner at Max’s. Pleasantly surprised by the family ambiance being the environment was so low key. The food was great, I ordered the Max’s sausage...More

You are correct. There is no dedicated parking area. We parked down the street a few hundred feet from the restaurant. Our friends parked directly across from us in front of a church. There was plenty of street parking... More
