Reviews for Max's Grill

Ok, they need an interior make over bad BUT, the food and service was outstanding. We just wanted something light, had the mushroom soup everyone talked about and yes, it’s as good as they all said. Also had the tempura ahi roll, super good too. Wine list was adequate and our server was a great guy. We talked travel, food, all kinds of stuff. Very enjoyable, unpretentious, well done!

The chef at Max's is a Japanese chef trained in classic French cuisine. The appetizers were leaning Japanese, and the main dishes and desserts were French. He makes everything from scratch, even the bread, and it shows. The food was outstanding, the staff is really friendly, and we will go back. The location, in a quiet street two steps away from Lighthouse is perfect for anyone staying in Pacific Grove, and parking is easy. I recommend the Prawn Tempura.

delicious with gracious service. we tried both soup specials and couldn’t pick which was better — creamy mushroom or french onion. both were great. soinach salad was perfect with a light vinaigrette. we had crab cakes and also salmon. will definitely be back next time we are in town.
