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.

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.

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.

I was not too overly impressed with this place. They were out of a lot of beers. only 5 to choose from. Getting a place to park was a pain in the ass. Wound up paying to park for $6. The food was decent, but a little over priced in my eyes. Beer that was available was decent, but not worth all the other things involved.

Reasonable pub in mid-town touristy area. Beer was so-so, and bartender, though just after luchtime, had no ideas of the beer. But staff was friendly, and young and assertive. They spend time of the hard stuff and wine, and from what I understand, the restaurant. Reasonable prices for the location. Interesting that they tried a barleywine, but they aim to not offend, as apposed to experimenting here. A bit of room, but felt crowded, even though the place was empty, compared to the Pub Store and 5 Seasons, and even Rock Bottom.

We arrived for a late lunch and found that we were the only patrons (1pm on a Saturday). A few more Ratebeer folks arrive a short time after but that was it. The result of this lack of customers was good service and quick refills. I particularly enjoyed their IPA and max Gold (surprisingly hoppy). The wings were great and the chicken salad with noodles was interesting and enjoyable. Given the fact that this was down town, I was surprised by the fact that there was no-one there (and so close to the aquarium too). Oh well, a nice place thatís worth a stop if you are in the area.

My boyfriend and I stayed next to Max Lagers and decided to eat there for dinner one night. We did not know that it was a brewhouse until shortly after. Food was very good and beer selection was also good. The beer we both tryed was very good. Highly recommend,

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.

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).

Not too bad....pleasant pub, not an exciting mix of beer offerings but some were rather tasty. I wonít go out of my way to go back but if weíre staying downtown again Iíll walk back over.
