Airport food, an evil necessity of flight. Max and Erma's should be a fairly easy place to grab a quick bite. Basic menu with good options for a traveler with a layover. It should be easy to make a salad and a couple of sandwiches. Wait staff did not acknowledge us for 20 minutes, although they were having a great... More

I usually do not eat lunch at airports....the food quality is too disappointing. Due to the timing of this trip, I figured I'd better put some fuel in the tank. This estaurant was surprisingly good. Food cooked to perfection and tasted very good. Service was also a plus.

We missed getting standy seats on an earlier flight so ended up having 4 hours to kill at the airport. We decided on Max and Erma's, good choice. Started by sharing nachos grande $11, they were huge, glad we didn't order 2 appetizers. Waited a couple of hours just surfing internet and BF had a few beers, then ordered main... More

Had to eat something before a long flight to California. Limited places open during Christmas Day but decided on here.Server was awesome and food was good despite my soggy bacon which I asked for crispy. Would go back again if flying through Detroit!

I love Max and Ermas. Not a big fan of chains but this one is pretty consistent. Chains suffer from the occasional bad wait staff, bad cooks and bad ingredients and bad days. Doesn't seem to apply here. I always go for the TMC. Grilled chicken on ciabatta with mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes and an amazing side salad with... More

Eight here before my flight home and order the hamburger medium rare. I will tell you that the fries come very hot and very well seasoned with their special house easing up but is far is a hamburger goes besides it being a very large hamburger ordering it medium rare had it come out very very pink in very mushy...

A friend and I stopped into Max & Erma's for a drink before our flight and the service at the bar was excellent and the beer was ice cold. I would recommend it if you don't have a lot of time but you want a delicious lunch or dinner option.

It was a great place to eat. I had a 45 minute layover, and I was in and out in now time. I walked off my plane, walked in and ate, and left. They greeted me relatively quickly, they took my order, and by the time I go look at the TV my order was ready. The food was great... More

Young hostess a little to quick to send people away or to order takeout as space was tight. Just 4 or 5 minute later. another waitress was seating people right away. I know she was young but her tone was very millennial....too quick.... too rushed....😕

Just a great staff overall-super helpful. Nice to have a fairly normal restaurant environment, sometimes lacking in an airport. Prompt and pleasant waitress. Quick and yummy food.
