We stopped in on our way back to Indy. Had not eaten at Max and Erma's in years. We were not super hungry, so we split a combo--1/2 lb cheeseburger, salad and fries, plus a cookie for under $10. Our server was great. She brought extra dinnerware and had the sandwich split onto two plates with the fry portion split... More

We shared a meal and the waitress was fine with us doing that. She was polite and came back several times to see how we were doing.

Food was ok but not great for the price. Service was great. There wasn't anything special about this place. May visit again but not sure

It had a good ambiance. The food was average. I ordered a well done burger and got a medium rare. Even though they didn't charge me it didn't leave a good impression.

Max & Erma's is a Midwest/Ohio Valley, casual dining chain restaurant. There is nothing directly around the outlet mall that is not a chain restaurant. If you are looking for local, eclectic, mom and pop dining you'll need to head into Edinburgh, Columbus, Franklin or over to Nashville. We stopped in for an early supper on a Friday night. We...

Chose this place based on reviews. Spent the afternoon shopping at the outlet across the street. As soon as we walked in we smelled wet rag ... that's when service staff use the same dirty water to wipe down tables. In addition, we were swatting flys the entire time. We also noticed people were not finishing their food. Bad first... More

I was not impressed at all. The server was nice but that was about it. The guacamole was blah and the steak was barely edible with no taste whatsoever. I took one bite of my broccoli and left it on my plate, it was practically raw. The mushrooms were nuked until they were almost dry. Maybe they were having an... More

Decent local place reminiscent of Applebee's or Chilis but with more local flare. Food was pretty good, service was excellent, and prices were fair. Not a bad stop if you're outlet shopping.
