    I lived on this block. Don't let the traditional bar fool you. The food is good. Corn fritters and also the flank steak is excellent, if you wanna pay a little more. Harvey and Richie are great!

    A fantastic place. This is the quintessential locals pub. Five beers on draught but there's an extensive basic bottles menu. If you're reading this, you'll love it.

    I recommend trying "Max's almost famous sauce" on your wings -- there's a little Asian kick (sweetness) with their hot sauce.

    The right dinner choice for Beacon. The Perogis and Onion soup were as good as people say. We really enjoyed the steak and pulled pork sandwiches.

    Try the Teriyaki hot wings. They're technically not on the menu so you have to ask for them specifically.

    Highly recco the Main & Walnut. Kind of like candy in adult beverage form but not sickly sweet. Nachos are huge and delicious. 1st time here. will def be back to eat our way thru the menu.

    The burger is really tasty but finishing it is a challenge. Split it with a friend and live to fight another day.

    For cocktails, try a Maxtini - a play on a Cosmo that add grapefruit juice for kick of sour-sweet flavor.

    No mixologists at Max's - Just good, old-fashioned bartenders.

    Love this place. If you're in Beacon for the day or weekend you should totally stop by here for lunch or dinner. It's family-owned and the vibe is great and food is yummy. Generous portions too!

    The Rib Eye Steak is never a disappointment!! (I leave off the Shallot Compound Butter - the steak is so good it's just not needed!!)

    The pulled pork sandwich blew me away. Heavy on the sauce but well worth it. One of the best I've ever had. Hot open turkey sandwich was thoroughly enjoyed by people with me too. I would come again!

    Chicken Caesar wrap is phenomenal, and so big it becomes 2 meals.. for under $10. This place never disappoints.

    Jesse is the best (and he's honest about the mozzarella sticks, too). Get the pierogis and tip your bartender.

    The beef stew (which is only occasionally offered as a special) should not be missed.
