I've never been one for negative reviews, however the experience we had at Max's Grill tonight was so disappointing that I felt it would be prudent to share. I've been to Max's in the past and had an okay-at-best meal- I mean you really can't expect much from a Sisco foods type of restaurant so the bar is never all that high anyway- but it's usually a good place to go if you want a giant serving of over-salted food. It is worth mentioning that the restaurant was MAYBE half full of customers. My main complaint is with our waitress, Laurie. She was rude, short, hard of hearing, and not knowledgable whatsoever about the menu. When we asked what beers were on tap we were met with a curt "well we have 15 of them." There was no beer list anywhere to be found. Or maybe there was, but she was too busy being annoyed over our request to make our bill more expensive to bother pointing it out. We ended up having to guess at what we might want until she heard one she recognized. Then, when we placed our order she had no idea what the side vegetables were. My elderly grandmother was met with a rude "I don't know, it's a medley." when she had the audacity to ask such a question. Sorry for wasting your time with our annoying requests, Laurie. On to the food, namely the "salad". They really shouldn't be allowed to call it a salad. It's a heap of lettuce paired with 1/4 cup of whatever dressing you choose. No other veggies, no croutons, and no cheese-- however it did come garnished with some previously frozen carrot sprinkles, so there's that. Once again, the bar is already low for this kind of restaurant, but they shot way below it. Moving on to the food, the reason for the second star. No real complaints on that front. I had the salmon pasta, which was, well, it was interesting. The salmon was good, the pasta was good, but they were not good together. Luckily they serve the entire salmon filet on top of the heap of pasta so I was able to easily separate the two. Others in my group had a sandwich, ribs, and shrimp. No complaints there. Finally, dessert. The apple pie is not as pictured, and our waitress forgot to include the ice cream. Whatever, after the rest of our experiences with her, this was not surprising. The other half of our table had the cheesecake, which they said was passable. Overall, this was very underwhelming and we will not be returning any time soon, because there's only so much one should have to endure in the interest of supporting local businesses.
Not the greatest service and or food. The ribs were like frozen along with the horrible veggie blend they had.
Stopped for a late lunch. Taco salad was inedible because it had way too much salt in the meat sauce. The server did an excellent job on service recovery and offered a different meal. I didn't have time. She did not charge for the meal. Great service...Food - not good.
