Love the food, always busy, easy to get a reservation. French Onion soup is the bomb. Would eat here again.

This is our "go to" place for a good breakfast, lunch or dinner. The salads are excellent, they serve a delicious steak and great sandwiches. And the chicken pot pie is the best I have eaten. Lots of chicken.

Hi Patricia! Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your experience! I'm definitely going to assume it was an off day as the hiccups you experienced are not indicative of a typical visit here! If you don't mind, I would love to gather some more details from you, to help figure out what the breakdown... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend and had to try it. I had the reuben and a cup of soup. The corned beef was perfectly seasoned and tender and melts in your mouth.

Creative food or simple favorites (including to-die-for desserts). Add drinks or not with excellent service, comfortable seating, and warm atmosphere. What's not to enjoy?

We had a delightful meal at Max's. Just off the freeway with easy access and parking. Our server Sandy gave us great service and the Cabbage soup was excellent as was the chopped salad and chicken piccata. It would have been five stars except that the bathroom was untended with an overflowed toilet -ugg. Glad I went AFTER I ate.... More

I have been here several time. It has a great visual appeal, but I found the food to be overprices and the staff with a little attitude problem.

The matzoh ball soup is out of this world, helped cure my cold and the service was excellent. The person preparing my take-out order followed my picky instructions to the letter insuring the soup would have a nice ride home. This is the best soup in the world. Just ask my mother-in-law.

My friend who lives in Auburn suggested this place to meet for lunch. My brother and I drove up from Sacramento and were very pleased to see how easy it was to find right off the freeway.
