The pizza was delicious. The staff was friendly and brought over a ball of pizza dough for my 5 yr old to play with while we waited for our meal.

Great coal oven pizza, menu could use a little more variety, but what I had was excellent. Service was a little slow for a small early evening crowd.

While in Atlanta for the supercross race, we decided to give this place a second try after a bad experience last time we ate here a year or two ago. Had to work to convince my wife, as she was still salty about the crap service and joke of a pizza we got last time which was almost devoid of any toppings....mistake. After we were seated and ordered drinks, before my beer arrived we were asked if we were ready to order. We said we needed a minute. 20 minutes later with empty drinks we decided to leave. At least the host/manager didn't make us pay for our drinks. Never again. Went next door to der biergarten where we've eaten/drank a couple times before, great food, great service, go figure. Max's coal oven whatever it's called gets a huge thumbs down...again, which pains me to do, as we are huge foodies and generally love a good brick oven pizza...when the pizza and service is actually good.

Based on our experience I can't recommend Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria. The service was sub par, and they ran out of pizza on Sunday evening.
