Visited with friends after a show. We started with a hot chocolate tasting, sharing 4 flavors around the table. I recommend the Italian with dark chocolate. Among the group, we had a waffle cheesesteak, waffle Cuban sandwich, hamburger, salad and two Mac and cheese dishes...More

This place is very busy, especially on weekends, so reservations are wise! The food was very good and the dessert selections were amazing! We ended up getting the sharing fondue to get a variety of things to share. Definitely try a waffle of some sort!

If you love chocolate this is the place! Good food and fun store filled with chocolate everything. Downside would be crowded seating but worth the wait. The salmon was amazing! Wait staff very friendly. Delicious looking drinks and desserts but we didn’t try them

We met family at Max Brenner's for dinner last weekend in the city. Despite having reservations, we still didn't have a table 45 minutes later. The entrance had at least 50 people waiting for tables at 7:30 pm. Fortunately, 4 spots became available by the...More
