Treat yourself to dinner at Max's. It is worth every penny. Food is well prepared and beautifully plated. A nice twist on old favorites. Extensive wine list, try one of their wine dinners if you get a chance. Great small plates and desserts Yummy

Loved everything we had. From beet salad to snapper dinner everything was great including the service. A little pricey but worth it

Food is excellent as it has been for long time. Service was very good. I have not been at Cafe Maxx for a couple of years and think that the decoration needs to be updated is a bit dark and dull. The fruit is not.
