Max's is friendly and responsive. I only had breakfast there. I could order from a menu or the breakfast buffet. There was a good selection of food. Separate containers for fruit let you design your own fruit bowl. No waffled, but lots of French Toast.

Great food and atmosphere. A little hard to find. But once you are there excellent. If ever in Auburn will visit again.

Eating in the bar is fun and they have great, delicious appetizers and deals on drinks. The sweet potato fries are to die for.
