I really enjoyed going to this shop with my family. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat. The service was attentive. I was disappointed with the gift shop. The staff did not have a good understanding of the products. I was looking for gluten free and nut free for one of my purchases and would have appreciated a little more help... More

We went here and was not disappointed. You walk in and can smell the chocolate immediately. We had our 6 and a 9 year old children with us. The kids got hot chocolates and their mugs are really cool. No handles and made to hold with both hands. My husband got the White Russian and said it was delicious. For... More

New Year's Eve 2016. We had dinner as a family at one location (review already provided), and went into the city for dessert, choosing Max's. Reservation for 6 was for 9pm as they told me on December 30th they were booked solid. Showed up for our 9pm reservation as 8:40pm, and the place was 75% full. Three desserts and a... More

Went for a family lunch over the holidays. It was very crowded but the place is small. My kids got the cookie shake. OMG it was fabulous! Good burgers. Very loud with all the kids but it was good

I have been to Max's in several cities in the country. My family used to love the place, especially for dessert, their specialty. We stopped in for an afternoon snack. The flatbread was soggy and limp without much flavor. We shared the dessert, chocolate mess, but the cake that made up the bottom layer tasted like a boxed mix and... More

This place is ridiculous - so good! The first time my husband and I went we got the chocolate martinis and a peanut butter sundae. I was basically in a chocolate coma and had to be rolled out. The second time we went I got a sandwich with waffle fries (which are dusted with chocolate) and the Mexican hot chocolate.... More

We went for dessert, expecting something great and were disappointed! We ordered their large chocolate cake sundae for 2. The cake was dry and boring aka Duncan Hines. It was topped with Redi Whip, sprinkles and not very exciting ice cream. Step it up a notch! You have chocolate in your name.

Known worldwide as the ultimate destination for chocolate, Max Brenner is the perfect place to eat… and indulge. Fill up on Really Crunchy Mac & Cheese, a pressed waffle sandwich or our ever-popular Brenner Burger. But save room, because the main course is dessert. Experience chocolate to the fullest and enjoy hot chocolate, Choctails, fondues, sugar waffles and more. Our most iconic dishes are served in specially-designed ceramic utensils, turning chocolate consumption into a chocolate ceremony. So double dip, lick your fingers and forget to share because at Max Brenner there aren’t rules – all you have to do is really love chocolate.
