Max Chop House appears to be your typical upper end steak house. Interior is friendly and comfortable. Steaks and the rest of the menu are exceptional. Food is as good if not better than any similar place in Rochester. Appetizers and deserts again your steak...More

Not the most stylish or trendy restaurant in town, but there's no better steak in Rochester than this Old World classic. The service is excellent, the drinks generously poured, and the food is excellent down to the smallest detail.

Max's Chophouse came highly recommended so my husband and I tried it. We looked forward to the best steak - but didn't happen. Max's is a small place, mellow, loungy atmosphere. There is a good size bar. We were promptly seated. Our server was very...More
