The restaurant is easily missed if one is not aware that it sits a bit back from the street. I suspect that was the reason we were able to easily get a table on a Saturday evening. We had a delicious meal with prices that were reasonably priced. I would highly recomend this restaurant for families and couples wanting a... More

I ordered the Laredo steak and it was burned. Waitress was terrible. Brought me the wrong appetizer and CHARGED me for it. I have nothing good to say about my experience here. Manager took a whole 5.00 off my bill. That's not a good compensation. 10 thumbs down!!!!!👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

Our waiter had a great sense of humor, service was good. The food was all cooked correctly, which sounds funny unless you have gotten over cooked veggies and under cooked meat.

I've been a customer of Max and Erma's since every table had a phone so you could call other patrons. (A long time ago.) I had the Laredo steak. It was underdone and quite cool by the time I got it. Service was slow. I think this was my last trip to M&E. I'm would. Have by far better of... More

Close to my hotel on a dark and stormy night...... Chicken tortilla strip soup was outstanding!! The Goat & Bacon burger was big and beautiful, but the spinach texture kind of turned me off. Fries were little plain - thought they were supposed to be spiced. Service was GREAT!! Sam was on top of everything, even listening to my complaints... More

Had a late (for the US anyway at nine pm) dinner. Opted for the veggie burger, which wasn't bad at all. Difficult to say much about the atmosphere as I was pretty much the last punter in the place. Service pretty swIft and friendly. Would recommend.

We arrived late in the evening for dinner. Took a table in the bar. It was obvious that the staff was starting to close things down. We were expecting to be rushed out. However to our surprise, the waitress/bartender was awesome. She was unhurried, helped us make our food and beverage decisions and provided wonderful service. The burgers were great.... More

Have visited this restaurant for business lunches, dinner with friends and late night snacks. Always good and excellent options on menu. Good for kids too. Warm chocolate cookies are great for kids of any age, including senior kids like me!!!!

In 1972, Max & Erma created a fun, unique restaurant so friends and family can gather for good times and a great meal, and decorated it with eclectic artifacts and local paraphernalia. Since that day, we've been committed to providing our guests with irresistible heartland classics and friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere the whole neighborhood can enjoy. We've grown over the years, but always remain true to what makes us successful - delivering a great memorable experience so that every guest leaves with a smile. After all, Max & Erma wouldn't have it any other way.
