I've eaten at Maxs many times and had fabulously prepared meals. This time, my meal was horrible! I was there for a company holiday party, 20 people on Dec 7, but the rest of the restaraunt was far from full. Service was, as usual, wonderful. I had crab cakes and Caesar salad to start, both very good. My entrée was... More

Food was okay, but certainly nothing outstanding except the roast beef sandwich, which was superb. Service should have been better. Not sure if much better in Springfield. Good for business lunch.

Post-thanksgiving dinner with friends. Kind of pricey but you're paying for the ambiance and restaurant name. The double cut chop was good but a smidge overdone. Hubby got the scallops which were plated nicely but he said were not that flavorful for $32. Service was excellent and great wine list too though.

Been here many many times. First time reviewing it though, because I actually feel the quality of the steak has decreased a bit. The last couple of times it's actually a 3 star experience, but if I should rate it the past couple of years it's 4 stars. Hopefully they will find a better source for the meat before my... More

Whether lunch and/or dinner, this restaurant is certainly first class. The menu is well suited for fine dining and the atmosphire is great. May be a little pricy, however.

Highly recommended. Extensive choice on both the food and drinks menu no complaints at all from the party. Would definitely visit again if in the area.

This is a very popular spot adjacent to the Basketball HOF just off I-91 in Springfield MA. First make a reservation otherwise you may have a long wait. Menu selections are varied with plenty of fish options. On a recent visit with my wife we had a selection of clams and oysters on the half shell and Asian ribs -... More

I'm always happy with the food at Max's. Great steak, the rib eye with the bourbon bacon butter is my favorite. The Brussels sprouts are awesome. The beer and wine menu is pretty good. The wait staff is always friendly. My only thing I wish was more non shellfish apps. The garlic bread fondue makes up for it though.

Sarah our server was attentive and efficient. Food was good very well prepared. Had monk fish for the first time on a bed of root veggies. Hubby had simply grilled scallops with Brussels sprouts. We enjoyed both entrees. The bread was good, nice and warm. The pumpkin cider donuts yummy. We don't usually order desert but, we couldn't resist.
