This place is awesome. GREAT pizza and other dishes. Lots of craft beers on tap. Fun atmosphere. It's definitely a popular spot as it carries a crowd both inside and out. Waitstaff are super nice and attentive. Prices are right and you'll have a good time if you go. What's better than wood-fired pizza really?

I've been here plenty of times in the past and found the food and beer to be 3-4 star. On this occasion the staff were inattentive and the food just lacking. It can have a nice atmosphere in here, but the standards seem to be a bit hit and miss. Hopefully it was just a one off.

The restaurant was right next to our hotel. It was very convenient we had lunch when we first got into town and my wife had a burger and I had a salad I was sure the burger would be good but not as sure about the salad I was wrong it was great. Our waiter was very helpful in pointing... More

There was nothing we didn't like at Max Lager's, and we tried a large portion of the menu. The chef came and talked to our large table personally. He's incredibly personable, and his food is delicious. All of it is spicy, which for me was a plus, but even people who weren't as fond of the spice couldn't help but... More

I visited here twice while at a conference. The first night I enjoyed one of their burgers and a selection of their own brews. The second night I treated myself to a fantastic filet mignon served with mash and grilled asparagus. The steak and asparagus were fantastic, but the mash cold. After I pointed this out they came back with... More

This place was great. The bartender let us have a small sample of all the beers before we decided what we wanted. I had a burger and it was very satisfying, the fries were great too, nothing average about this place. Great service, great food, GREAT BEER. I highly recommend stopping by this place.

We had a very good time there although too busy for us to get a seating table, but staff directed us upstairs which was a perfect option. Brewery material is very beautiful and exposed as decoration which gives the whole place an exciting moment. Food is good and the very large set of biers, locally brewed or bottled is amazing.

Had dinner and drinks here with our company's business team. Appetizers we're really good. For dinner I had the Cowboy Ribeye. Excellent. Others had burgers and sandwiches which they complimented as well. I was slightly disappointed with their beer however. Their selections seemed heavily tilted toward the hoppy stuff like IPAs and Amber Ales. Overall definitely worth a stop if... More

I loved their salmon over cheese grits. I almost came back three more nights just to eat it again. The place was jamming when I was here, but the food was worth the wait!

Max Lager's was one of the first restaurants to bring the fresh and natural wood-fired menu concept to Atlanta. The art of cooking with wood enhances the Max Lager's experience with bold flavors simply not found with alternative cooking methods. We feel that the investment made in the wood-fired grill is an investment that pays great dividends to our guests. All Max Lager's menu items are prepared daily from scratch. Wood-fired steaks, burgers, seafood, ribs, and pizza are Max Lager's signature items. An inspired selection of entree salads and pastas add variety to the American menu.
