Went to have a quick lunch with my mom today and decided to go to one of our favorite places to get a burger. We were told there would be a 10 minute wait which was fine, and we were promptly seated in that amount of time. We wait for 27 minutes for our server to show up and she... More

Was out doing some gift shopping on Monday with my husband, and we decided to get some lunch before heading home. Although there are a lot of places to choose from in Washington, we opted for Max & Erma's. Glad we did. Place is like all of them, nicely decorated, and not too crowded. Got seated at a booth in...

We arrived here smack at dinner time but yet only 1 table was filled. We were seated and given menus; we asked a couple of questions since this was our first time. Waitress was fine at first, not great though. She took our orders, brought drinks and then food. And then we never saw her again. Never checked on our... More

On our first visit to Max and Erma's we arrived a few minutes before the doors opened for lunch. Husband and I each ordered unsweetened iced tea to start. Whatever we were served was NOT iced tea! It had a sweet chemical taste. When my first mouthful ended up back in the glass the server laughed. Husband tasted his and... More

Six of us ate here during a wedding weekend. Never having been to this chain, we had no idea what to expect but were pleasantly surprised by the food and service. Whether it was the spinach salad, the wings, burgers, or the sangria, it was all good. Very tasty. Reasonable prices. Attentive waitstaff. Will definitely stop in for a meal... More

A friend took us to Max and Erma's for dinner. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. I had to order an allergy friendly meal and they were very accommodating and attentive. My steak was cooked perfectly! My son enjoyed the kids build-your-own sundae.

Wait staff was very nice as well as management. Food was really good. I had a burger and seasoned french fries both were excellent. My wife had a turkey club and it was fresh ingredients and very large in size. Great atmosphere and the restaurant was very clean as well. No negatives that I can think of. The prices were... More

Had never been to a Max & Erma's despite heavy advertising in the 90's so thought to try it out while in the area. Different than the usual Applebee's or TGIF. Everyone had burgers, which they're known for. Two were advertised specials for St. Patty's day. My son said his burger was #1 over RR and 5Guys but nothing compares... More

Went out as a family and came here because we always enjoy Max and Erma's. The food was flavored well and all parts of the meal were wonderful. Only downside was that the server spent more time chatting up the bar tender than doing anything else. Otherwise great meal! We will be back.

Thank RevBT
