THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Max & Erma's Restaurant Review

: In posh Shadyside, an upscale shopping area, Max & Erma's offers an affordable lunch, quick bite or leisurely meal. On the second floor of a building known for its hair salon, the chain restaurant aims for an old-world atmosphere. Service is cheerful. The long, eclectic menu offers options for every taste---from tortilla soup and black bean roll-ups to healthful salads and the Laredo steak with "cactus (herb) butter." There's an impressive array of hamburgers, made with fresh ground beef, including the nine-topping garbage burger. The signature ice cream bar lets you concoct your own sundaes.
