Went for lunch when I was at a conference. Was able to sample some of their beers, but I was the only man the bartender had to wait on, and it took me about 50 minutes to get my food. They were a bit busy, but the service was a bit lacking. The beer was pretty good, and the food was tasty, at downtown prices. Would go back to hang out, or if I had a bit more time.

Nice place with a small lot you might get parking in, six beers on tap when I visited, they were sort of underwhelming. Didnít take note of the food, seemed like a power lunch crowd when I was there at noon on a weekday.

This place is so frustrating. They could really catch a crowd if they just focused a bit more on their beer. Honestly, I think if they forced the brewer to attend a brewing school, you could really have something special. I went with my brother and sister-in-law. The food was pretty good. Some of their food is expensive, and well worth it, but some of their other stuff, not so much. I love the fact that they have their own house brews. They really could give 5 Seasons a run for their money if they just tweaked some of their damn recipes. The service was pretty good, but nothing mind-blowing. Overall, give this place a chance. They seem to want to be a great place to go to, but they just need the proper manager to guide them in the right direction.

A dandy brewpub near - if not in - the heart of Atlanta. I like the rather rough decor because it makes the place unpretentious. Their brews are OK at worst, and usually tend towards very good, if not world-class. Food is above average by a comfortable margin.

Half of this places beers are lagers and the other half are ales. Maybe they ought to stick to root beer because either of the beer styles arenít very good. Convenient downtown location and decent lunch menu but fuh-get abou-it if you want to park anywhere close.

This is not a favorite of mine either. There beers are always really basic. The ambiance is nice, but I am not a big fan of the employees, very commercial.

It has a great...
downtown location near the conference center. Thats the mian positive about this place.
The ambieance was íweíre trying so hard to be coolí, but they couldnít succefuly stick with a themed gimmick well enough to make it remotely work.
The beer was average at best.
The service was subpar to say the least.
The food left a fair amount to be desired.
One of the more negative reviews Iíve ever written.

Max Lagers has apparently fallen on some hard times. This was substantially different, methinks, than the first time that I patronized the restaurant about 4 years ago. First off, the beer was pretty lackluster and clumsy. I NEVER send food back, but I did here. My fish and chips were the pits - my guess is that they chucked a piece of frozen fish into some batter and tried to cook it. It came out raw in the middle and the batter was overdone. The barmaid did call the manager who apologized, but all he did was take the food that I didnít eat off the bill. The place is starting to get run down - looks like corners are being cut. The beer was made by recipe, not by brewmaster. My guess is that Max isnít long for this world unless thereís an ownership change.

Found this place by accident in downtown Atlanta, and I loved it immediately. Nice buzzy atmosphere (certainly during lunch) Very good and decent food. Nice own brewed beers and a large selection of demestic, special and imported beers.If you are in Atlanta, a place to must visit.

Downtown location, was completely dead at 4 on a Friday afternoon. Regular "brewpub" feel--lots of wood, copper tanks. The staff were nice, but in the end I questioned their judgment--they insisted I should not consider walking to Greenís liquor on Ponce de Leon (they portrayed it as downright dangerous), so I got extorted by a cab, but I walked back from there and found it highly trafficked, very commercial, and no less safe than the rest of the downtown. Only four beers on tap (they were out of their pilsner, believe it or not).
