Max & Erma’s is where big flavors and irresistible contemporary heartland classics come together. A fun, eclectic, locally-themed ambiance creates a welcoming neighborhood spot that’s the perfect combination of familiar and fresh.
The first restaurant was founded in 1972 in Columbus, Ohio. Max & Erma were real people with big personalities! They created an intriguing, one-of-a-kind local restaurant serving up great burgers aside a variety of American classics that attracted friends and family for great food and guaranteed good time. The restaurant mimicked Max & Erma’s own personalities, with funky artifacts and local paraphernalia covering the walls.
Our diverse menu features distinctive award-winning burgers, our famous tortilla soup, warm-from-the-oven fresh-baked cookies, and freshly-chopped signature salads. We’ve grown over the years, but always remain true to what makes us successful—delivering a great memorable experience so that every guest leaves with a smile. After all, Max & Erma wouldn’t have it any other way.
