Just another glowing review for Max's...

I visit semi-regularly for the stellar lineup of draft beers and enjoy taking in the view of all the bottled offerings behind the bar downstairs and upstairs in the lounge. Can't imagine ever being disappointed with the selection, and beers are always served in appropriate glassware. The experienced bartenders know what they're doing and aim to please as long as you don't come in acting like an arse. Weekend nights are full of light beer drinkers, so I suggest visiting on tamer weeknights to relax and appreciate this place. Some might complain about the lack of table service, but I'm pretty self reliant, so def not a problem for me. Cool fests throughout the year are becoming increasingly popular, and cool opportunities to sample the various offerings that Casey wrangles (don't know how he does it!). I prefer to eat elsewhere but the short menu could provides ok bar food in a pinch. A landmark in the craft beer world that one should visit when in Baltimore.

Great place, nice vibe and great bartenders, but sub-par food keeps it from getting 5s across the board.

Great atmosphere to have a drink and watch a game. Plenty of space which is rare for pub in Fells Point. You feel a real sense of community and belonging.

The exceptional level of beer served up cannot be denied, will not be denied. The service on the other hand does range from on point to conjuring up the scene from the Seinfeld episode "Soup Nazi". Depending on the bartender/server, just know what you want and ask no questions. Sure, you could blame this on how ridiculously busy they can get, seeing as they are in the heart of Fell's Point and are pouring the best beers town. The reality is however, after numerous visits with different groups, we still have had questionable service at times and it just is what it is. Would I go back? You betcha.

Amazing selection of beers, best place in MD imo. If possible be sure to attend the legendary Belgian beer weekend in February, one of the greatest events in the DMV area. Constantly changing beer list, never know what you may find.
