The downtown location has a cool atmosphere, but seems really dead outside of business hours. Basically, it’s 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. I’m not even sure if it’s 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 you’re in the area, it’s worth the visit, but isn’t something you have to seek out if it’s a lot of trouble. I’ve never had bad service. In fact, the service is usually excellent.

This is my #2 Atlanta-area brewpub. 5 Seasons has them beat in both food and beer, but that doesn’t mean that Max Lager’s 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.

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.

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 that’s worth a stop if you are in the area.

I visit this place often when I’m in Atlanta. The Max Lagers beers are decent and the food is pretty good, too. I recommend the BBQ Shrimp. Also,the service was fast even when it was busy. A good place to vista when you’re on a business trip.

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.

Centrally located in downtown Atlanta. The food outpaces the brews but, neither are bad. The beers can be hit or miss. The food isn’t really that upscale, but certainly decent for a brewpub. The space is nice with an upstairs with pooltables and space for private parties. Overall, a decent place with decent brew and grub. Parking is a pain, better if you can ride or walk.

Not too bad....pleasant pub, not an exciting mix of beer offerings but some were rather tasty. I won’t go out of my way to go back but if we’re staying downtown again I’ll walk back over.

While traveling in Atlanta, I stopped into this place. I started rating beers fom the sampler, and the owner saw me and started talking to me. We talked for at least an hour, and I think the beers were fairly good even if not outstanding. I had an unfinished sample of the Imperial IPA (very good). The service and hospitality were superb.
