You need a brunch option before a show in Lancaster? Then Max’s is the place to choose! (even if the show ends up being canceled last minute). I had been here once before, but really only to enjoy boozy milkshakes and fries. So I was excited to come back and try more of the menu!
Ambiance/Atmosphere: Max’s gives a dinner vibe but with a modern twist! There are tables and booths, seats by the window and a bar! The day we happened to go have live music which was a great surprise! The staff was awesome! Our server, Sean made the experience!
Drinks: Besides milkshakes (both boozy and not), they have an assortment of brunch cocktails and hot drinks as well as other cocktails. Around the table we had a variety of mimosa’s (cranberry, guava and passion fruit) as well as a bloody Mary and Maria (with tequila). All were so yummy and served in fun glasses. Don’t be fooled, the schooner mimosa is big – but delicious. (Note to self: make sure food is in the stomach first LOL).
Menu: I do not even know where to begin on their menu. I mean it probably took mom and I easier 30 minutes to decide what to order. It is a big menu with lots of different options. Honestly you can’t go wrong with anything you order. We did order a variety of items around the table including: chicken and waffles, smash burger salad, patty melt, classic bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, sweet potato hash and a side of mac and cheese. Mom ordered the barbacoa torta with bacon cheese brussel sprouts on the side. 10/10. The beef was tender and juicy and it had a great spicy kick!
I ordered the Buford van stomm sando. A 10/10 breakfast sandwich, So tasty with the sausage patter and cheese omelet! But of course I needed tots on the side and they were perfectly crispy and delicious. When I say this is only a small glimpse of their menu, I am not lying! Click here to explore the menu more! I cannot wait to go back and try something new!
Tips/recommendations: If you plan to go, especially with a bigger group, then make a reservation! We did for a group of 8 and it was perfect! If it’s only a couple of you, then sit at the bar for a fun dining experience! Have the people in your party all order something different for sharing! MILKSHAKES are a must order. Any of their potatoes (all ways) are also a must order as well. And as always, try something new every time you go.
Live to Eat,
One thought on “Max’s (Lancaster, PA)”
Maxi was still much fun and delicious. So hard to decide what to order. Our waiter was the best. This is a must for you to try 🙂
