Max and Erma's has a nice variety on their menu and makes a great alternative to the food court at the convention center. The service always got us in and out in an hour and you couldn't beat their 10.95 burger soup/salad and cookie combo....More

Enjoyed our meal during a recent conference so much that we returned the following day. A nice menu and great prices. The food was good and plentiful. I found the wait staff to be extraordinarily pleasant and attentive.

Great location next to the Crown Plaza allowed for a night cap with only a 100 foot walk back to the hotel. Nice options on the appetizer menu. Only disappointment was the patio was closed at night since it was located directly below hotel rooms.
