I've eaten at Max's twice and each time the pizza was delicious. It's a prefect place for share a pizza and a salad. I'm looking forward to going back.

Downtown Paducah is really a place you want to visit if you're new to the city. There are lots of great restaurants and one of them is Max's. Its high-end and more appropriate for dates or small groups, it is not a family style restaurant. Service and the food are excellent. The shrimp is wild-caught and the appetizer Shrimp de... More

Max's is apparently a popular venue for couples on a date. Everyone seemed to know someone else who was dining here. Very friendly vibe. Quaint, reserved and vying for a more upscale crowd. Pastas, Salads, Wood Oven Pizza and Steaks make up the core of the Italian themed venue. An extensive wine list and cocktails assortment as well as spiked... More

Serves liquor. Varied menu including brick oven pizza. Good pastas and seafood. Go there ever so often and always satisfied. A bit pricey for the offerings.

I like this place a lot! Pizza is terrific. Crust is from local bakery. Outdoor gathering area for food and fun. Have been there about half dozen times.. never a bad meal and servers are always friendly.

My husband and I were in town for a family New Year dinner, we arrived on Friday before Saturday's New Year's Eve. The menu was limited because of the coming holiday but still extensive enough that we both found food that was delicious and satisfying. My husband got the brick oven fired sausage pizza--it was prepared perfectly with a thin... More

Great bar,year around outside seating, good wine selection. They have the best steak in Paducah and their Salmon salad is delicious. Dress is business casual but you see everything. Good idea to make reservations.

It had been awhile since we had been to Max's and decided to go there with several friends before a concert. We made reservations and the next day Max's called to suggest that we make our reservation for 30 minutes earlier. They suggested this because they knew we had plans to attend the concert afterwards and they were concerned we... More

Max's was recommended and we really enjoyed it. I had the tuna, seared, medium rare. We had a few requests and the waiter was accommodating. Salads were fresh, dinner was served as soon as we we were finished with the salads. Creme brulé was our dessert. We enjoyed it all.
