  • Quality of Service:

Pros:They have good food, hosts, waiters, and waitresses. Wonderful atmosphere. Well stocked with food.

Cons:Not always clean, can be busy, only has Pepsi products.

The Bottom Line: This is a great place for families or just a group of friends. The atmosphere is relaxing.


Max and Erma’s is a family friendly restaurant with random fun objects on the wall, pictures of the original owners and other families. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are at home. I have always liked feeling comfortable in each place that I eat at. When you arrive in the building the host or hostess is very friendly and usually the host seats you right away. The waitress or waiter is quick to come and get your drink orders. However, the waiter or waitress can come a little too fast if someone has never been there and does not know what they have to drink. The waitress or waiter gives you enough time to look over the menu and decide which food choice you would like. The waiter or waitress gives you time before you get your food to talk to whoever you are with.
There are a variety of foods including: salads, soups, chicken, seafood, hamburgers, steaks, ribs and desserts. If you like hamburgers, they have eleven kinds to choose from. One of my favorite sandwiches’ that they offer is the Philly Cheese Steak. The Philly Cheese Steak is a little greasy, but when you hold it your fingers are not dripping with grease. It comes with fries which you can replace with another side. Their tortilla soup is one of the signature items. It is made with spicy chicken, cheese and tortilla crisps. The desserts that Max and Erma’s have are astonishing. They have fresh baked cookies, make your own sundae, pies and cake. The cookies are ordered when you order your dinner, and arrive hot from the oven when you are done eating. You can also get milk if you want to eat the cookies there. If you are looking to spend a reasonable amount, but still want good tasting food, Max and Erma’s is the place to be at. Every item on the menu is evenly priced. You won’t be spending 40 dollars for a steak and salad.
The restaurant is clean and well stocked. You rarely see food on the floor and the ketchup bottles stay well stocked. I have experienced this situation at other restaurants, but not at Max and Erma’s. The silverware is clean and rarely has spots from the dishwasher. The seats are comfortable except for the booths which are comfortable, except when the padding is no longer there. There are some Max and Erma’s that have a game room upstairs, but it is rare to have one in most buildings. Even though Max and Erma’s has many great things, they have some bad qualities. Sometimes Max and Erma’s can be a busy place, so if you do not like waiting for 20-30 min it is not the place for you. The cleanliness of the tables are poor and often dirty. If you are looking for comfort, the booths are not a good place to sit at.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants a good time with good food. It is a great place for families or just a group of friends. If you do not have a lot of money to spend, you can still get a decent meal. It can be a little busy so if you do not like waiting I would recommend coming early or just wait, it is worth the wait.
The restaurant Garfield’s is a restaurant like Max and Erma’s. It has the similar color scheme and artifacts on the walls. They also have similar foods: tortilla soup, the Philly cheese steak, and some similar hamburgers. Max and Erma’s is more of a family oriented restaurant, while Garfield’s is a get together with friends. Max and Erma’s make you feel at home, while having fun. However, Garfield’s is more of a place where college students and adults can enjoy themselves.
Max and Erma’s is a place to enjoy yourself and others while sitting down at dinner. Mostly everyone will have a fun time, and find something they like on the menu. You can have a low cost date or a cheap meal by yourself. Max and Erma’s is not just a restaurant, it is a home away from home.
