The downtown location has a cool atmosphere, but seems really dead outside of business hours. Basically, itís right smack dab in the middle of the business section of downtown Atlanta and has good business at lunch and around supper time during weekdays, but is dead on weekends. Iím not even sure if itís open on Sundays anymore. The beer is ok with the occassional excellent seasonal beer. The food is pretty good and not all that outrageous in price. If youíre in the area, itís worth the visit, but isnít something you have to seek out if itís a lot of trouble. Iíve never had bad service. In fact, the service is usually excellent.

Well, I might be biased so maybe if i go back i will rerate, but when i was there 2 cars were stolen fro mthe parking lot (not mine thankfully) and their 2 cool brews were tapped out. So.... the ones i had were aight. The atmosphere was pretty sweet and chill and apparently the food rocks but i didnt experience it... word.

This was a stop on the Atlanta Crawl. The beers are pretty standard with the exception of a few. The atmosphere isnt bad but Atlanta has better to offer. Decent drinking hole if nothing else.

Ok, so dont drive here, or dont park in their parking lot as 2 cars were jacked the time i was there. All their good beers were tapped out so that sucked. The rest of the selection was nothing special. They did have a cool waffles and chicken place just down the road from it though so that was cool.

Not the best experince of my life. The atmosphere was OK, but the restaurant was virtually empty at 8:00 PM on a Friday night. The food was the best part and it wasnít exactly outstanding. Our server was friendly, but was not a good server. The check arrived without asking if we were done (or even wanted dessert). I might go back if it is as convenient next time as it was the last time, but I certainly wouldnít go out of my way.

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.

Downtown location with crappy parking. Brewery equipment is open into the restaurant and very visable. The place was very crowded and busy with a good restaurant decor. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly about their beers but seemed too busy to focus on their customers. The selection of beers was good and the food was very good. Overall this was a nice place, better than some of the other Atlanta brewpubs but nowhere near the quality of 5 seasons.

This is my #2 Atlanta-area brewpub. 5 Seasons has them beat in both food and beer, but that doesnít mean that Max Lagerís is lacking in either. The food is good, and more affordable than 5 Seasons and the beer is tasty as well. Max is also known to brew some interesting beers hard to find in the area like their Belgian-style Max Abbey. The downtown location looks a bit like an old firehouse or gutted factory and is really open. Rarely loud and a nice place for a beer and a meal.
