It was busy on Saturday night but service was excellent and we could talk easily over the noise levels. The appetizers we bought were all quite good

My parents are both in wheelchairs but are always accommodated and therefore it is their favourite restaurant that they always choose to come back to over any other in Windsor.

We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday on Sunday. We planned it open house style. There were 40 people that showed up. The managers and servers were exceptional. Everything was great. Everyone enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Reservation needed to be made larger. I left a message and prompt call back. Also at the time needed to make it even bigger and they accommodated. Only issue is the drinks are not always filled to the top of the glass. This has happened on more than one occasion. That is my only complaint

The only thing I didn’t like was that the beer on tap wasn’t cold and because of this I’m not sure if I’d go back. Warm beer is gross, needs to be Much colder!

We had a large party come in and our server Hailey was great, always available to take drink and food orders even though we were ordering at different times. Unfortunately the order/ payment system went down but she was apologetic and took care of us as as best she could in the circumstances.

Place was great and food was good. Server was running around so much she took over half an hour to take out order (not her fault. they need more staff on fridays here) waitress was fantastic otherwise. Food was wonderful but again, took 30 min to get salads. I think they just need more staff is all.

John Max was a stop on our tour-de-Windsor bachelor party. Staff was very accommodating. Large groups of young guys can be a rowdy crowd, but staff was nonetheless polite and deferential. Very impressed at how smooth and enjoyable our experience was. Strongly recommend.

The service was outstanding and the food came out fast, hot, and fresh! The "Hot Towels" were a bonus to clean my saucy fingers after eating their delicious chicken wings. Keep out the great work JMAX!!!

The atmosphere was very good but really need someone working the door as customers walk in. People are standing around the door and people entering are not sure who has checked in with reservations and who has not. Becomes quite confusing to customers

Very easy to book online reservations for my group of ten. Noise level was a bit high but not unexpected as your restaurant was very busy.

I love John Max. Its always been my favorite place to go for events especially on chicken wing night. Our waitress however was horrible. And it wasn't even that busy. I've seen it a lot more packed then that. It took forever to order our food or get refills and when it came time to pay our bill, we waited almost 30 mins to get it. Everyone in my party commented on how terrible she was. I will go back because I love it there, but I won't sit in her section

$15 for 8 tiny chicken wings. Nachos had barely any cheese even though the menu states specifically “1/4lb of cheese”. When I brought it up the waitress said “that’s what they look like”.

$160 for four people. 3 single orders of wings, Nachos and a couple rounds of shots and beers. Not worth it.

We all had the wings. Different sources and they were excellent. I think you could do better with the stubby hard to eat carrots. Maybe some carrot sticks and celery would be a better compliment to your excellent wings.
