This is one of my favorite places to eat! Located near the Walt Whitman Bridge. The seafood is awesome here. Try the mussels in red sauce. Great local atmosphere. Love the wine selection! Off street parking. On open table too!

Our large group was happy with the great food and service. Seafood was very good which was expected. The surprise was an outstanding filet steak and perfectly seasoned mash potatoes and vegetables. Will return soon.

I have dined at Max's many times. It used to be better. Service is slow, food is average, and prices are high. We waited an hour between courses. The place wasn't busy. We will not be back.
