I had the pleasure of eating at Max Lager's for the last 2 nights while in Atlanta for a conference. I want to commend the staff who served us tonight, particularly your hostess and our server Jeffery. Both provided incredible service to our party of 7. Jeffery encouraged us to try your ribs, pork chop, fried chicken, BBQ plate and the fantastic fried cheesecake and carmel pecan brownie. He paired our meal perfectly with wine and as Californians we were all impressed. My friends and I remarked that we had the meal of our lives last night. Thank you for the incredible food and service.
The whole evening was great. The restaruant was easy to find and had parking in the back. Our group was seated upstairs and had excellent staff waiting on us. Our food arrived quickly and exceeded my expectation. There was a constant aroma of a fireplace in the room. I am writing this review for one reason. I was driving that night and did not have any of their beers. (Although everyone else did in our group.) I ordered a Root Beer with no ice. It arrived in a frosted mug and I was surprised. I was told that they brew their own in house and that it was rather good! Good doesn't come close to describing the taste. It was by far the best I had ever tasted. I am at a loss of words when it comes to describing it. Everyone at my table ended up ordering at least one. Some even ordered Root Beer floats for desert! I wish I had the words to describe it to you. If this Root Beer was a ten on a scale from one to ten... The next best Root Beer I have ever had only rates a five. It is remarkable. I will drive from Ohio to Atlanta to get more, you can be sure. Thanks!
I'm usually skeptical of restaurants/bars attached to hotels for whatever reason, but this a decent spot. The homebrews picked up the slack where my meal was just eh. The Hopsplosion was pretty tasty. Wish they weren't out of a few of their other beers though. Apparently that happens a lot. Sad, given how good I think the empty kegs might taste.

I took one my buddies here for his birthday upon the recommendation of others. I had heard a lot of good things about it, but from my experience I couldn't recommend this place to anybody.
The beer was quite tasty. However the service was so poor that it simply does not make up for it. The bartender insulted our group and was not very timely at all. To top it all off, after he didn't receive the tip he thought he ""deserved"" he came after our group a 1/4 of a mile down the street.....
There are a lot of options to stop in for good beer in the downtown area. This should not be one of them.

My family and I had such an enjoyable evening at this resturant. The atmosphere is a mix of a laid back and casual coupled with fine dining; beautiful lighting in the evening. The food is fresh and perfectly seasoned. The wait time was perfect in between courses. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their work. It has been so long since my family and I had a dining experience like this one. If you are going out to eat, you have to go here. The food was so good, I cannot describe it, you have to go for yourself. Next time I'm in Atlanta, I will be dining at Max Lagers. I recommend trying the fried cheesecake.

With all of the dining options available to visitors of Atlanta, Downtown is often overlooked. However, if you want to drink some quality microbrews and dine on continental offerings with a Southern flare, Max Lager’s is the place. You can park across the street at a discounted rate (Inquire with staff). The décor is industrial and cheery. I enjoyed a meal at the bar. The bartender was courteous and knowledgeable. It was a chilly December afternoon, so I started with a cup of Gumbo and a Gold Lager. The Gumbo warmed me with its flavors and healthy chunks of chicken & sausage. The lager balanced with it well. The bartender informed me of the days lunch special and did little else to influence my decision. The Beef Brisket Tacos sounded too good to pass up. Ronnie, the bartender, suggested a Brown Ale to go with the tacos. Again, another good call. The tacos were served with a side of corn salsa and green chili sauce. For dessert, I enjoyed a Max Abbey. It was flavorful and delicious with a hint of sweetness at the finish. Insofar as exceeding my expectations, I would have to give this experience “Two Thumbs Up!”

I frequent the downtown restaurants as I work and live in the area. Max Lagers always provides a solid answer to my hunger. Yesterday I was in for the first time since the holidays and they had an awesome fish soft taco made with mahi mahi. I couldn't finish it all, it was massive and was really, really good. It was a special and I am writing this review to let them know to put it on the menu permanently!!! thanks guys for doing a great job. See you very soon!
