I live near Max's and usually avoid places near the freeway due to crowds, but the wife and I tried it recently for breakfast and enjoyed it. The place was formerly a Marie Callenders and is situated next to the hotel. The wife had her eggs benedict and I had a light breakfast of french toast. The service was good, the food was very nice. We usually eat breakfast about 9am during the week, so it was no crowded. The Holiday Inn would generate a fair amount of business. The Grass Valley Highway(Hwy 49) is just down the driveway with the westbound I80 straight ahead at the signal and the eastbound onramp just 2 easy left turns. The In & Out nextdoor is typically very crowded especially with the ski crowds, but it does have a drive through for those on the road eats. I found Max's prices to be reasonable for breakfast and can not vouch for lunch or dinner. It's a nicely decorated place, not a Dennys, so prices could be expected to be higher and cafes. I got 3 peanut butter cookies for the dear wife before we left to enjoy later.
