My husband and I were visiting the area, had tickets for a play in Issaquah and wanted to have dinner close by before hand. Well he found Max's on the internet and we decided to try it. It was such a delight. Tiny, tiny space, we made reservations! The owner is the hostess/waitress/chef, so be patient and don't be in a hurry. You will be so happy if you can keep that frame of mind. We had made our reservations for 7 with a curtain time of 8 across the street. Traffic in town and parking was horrible when we got there so had to park 1/4 mile away. We were 10 minutes late to the restaurant. Even so our table was waiting. We told her we going to the play when we ordered so she kept us away from the chicken dish my husband wanted because it took 20 minutes to cook. We re adjusted, he had the pork tenderloin and I had the special of short ribs. Food came out quickly and it was amazing. Such flavor mixture, tender. I only ate half of mine and took the rest in a box, stuffed in my purse, to the play and then home! I can't wait to eat the left overs. We want to go back and try the fish tacos and really just about everything else on the menu. We eat out a lot and therefor appreciate food that is original and obviously made with love. That's what you will get a Max's. It's a must if you are anywhere close to Issaquah!
