I generally tend to avoid eating at airports because it's often expensive and tasteless, but I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The staff was courteous and service was fast. Definitely liked it 😊

I had high hopes for Max & Erma's. My Indianapolis-born wife had always raved about the chain. While I had passed it many times in DTW, had never stopped in. And I'm sorry I did. There were three different parties of one waiting at the hostess stand. Waited for 10 minutes for a hostess to appear. When she did, she... More

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

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
