As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a problem that looked like short staff. 7 or 8 empty tables, and an entrance area crowded with standing people waiting to be seated.
Waitress was friendly, but there were not enough people waitressing tables. Service was slow

I reserved here for myself and 2 friends. We ordered our drinks. Several very large parties were seated after us. We waited. The large party behind us ordered their drinks. They received their drinks. We waited some more. After about 1/2 hour, and still no drinks, we had the sneaking suspicion that either we were being ignored in favor of the large parties, or simply just forgotten about. Instead of trying to push the issue, we just left and went to the Dispensing Company, we we received excellent service, food and drinks just like we always do. I wanted to give this place a good review, but they were just not on their game or something.

The food was good however very pricy. Milkshakes were too expensive to not be thicker than what they were. Very cute place and good service. Great onion rings too!

There was no lightbulb in the light so the section we were seated in was very dark. The waitress did not check in on us very often and took a really long time to get us our check.

We had a great meal, there for Tiki month and it was so much fun! Service was fast and efficient. The whole place was decorated for the Tiki month, it was like a mini tropical vacation. Also on Fri-Sun they serve bottomless mimosas.

Our food was amazing. I have one suggestion to make for breakfast. Add some fun coffee drinks like lattes or iced coffee. I would have loved to be able to have that with my breakfast.

The scrapple my husband ate was the best he's had in Lancaster County.

Service was terrible. Our waitress had no personality and it took someone 15 minutes to come take our order and to even get a drink - especially frustrating when you have a child with you. Food was good but we ordered a vanilla milkshake for our child and it was extremely watery - not what we expected from Max’s.

This is our 3rd time to Max's. Obviously, we have come back because it was good and fun, not this time. Food was not up to par nor was the usual variety. Sad, we won't be back.
