Ranked #1 for bloody Mary's and it's TRUE! What a great discovery for breakfasts and lunch! We had from the "Burrito Alley"--the Trash Can Burrito! WOW!! Kitchen Sink Omelette---excellent! House pancakes & bacon--very flavourful! Lox & Bagel with smoked salmon--perfect. All portions were generous. Breakfast from 8 to 11:30AM Recommended!

We ate at Max's last night before going grocery shopping. The have a special every night from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. There are 4 choices to choose from and you have your choice of 2 for $12.50 US. My husband and i had the Shrimp in Gonagozola sauce with filler mignon. It was fabulous, our compliments to the chef.

Good food but not very attentive personnel. We were served quite quick after ordering but staff never really checked to see if we needed anything once we received our food or while we waited for our food.

A trip to Max's never disappoints. The food is consistently good. since it is a popular breakfast location you will usually have to wait for a table. Its worth it. Get a bloody Mary and you will not be disappointed.

The food was good and fairly delicious and there was a variety of options for our family visiting from Arizona. The restaurant was conveniently located next to Penasco Del Sol hotel. Would have liked more vegetarian options, especially beans that were not mixed with beef. The service was friendly and the place was clean.

They seat you quickly inside or out. Good drinks and above average food. A few doors from Skullyz and Southside Jill's.

I have eaten at Maxes more than any other place in RP over the last 10 years. They are always consistently good. Not much on atmosphere but all great people will be serving you. With out a doubt it is one of the best.

Thank Jerry J
