Max's Allegheny Tavern is a full-service restaurant located inside a former 19th century hotel (known at the time as the Farmers & Drovers Hotel). In the 1880s, it was a popular overnight stop for the drivers of the wagons coming in from the north with produce and wares for sale in the busy market houses of Allegheny City and Pittsburgh.

A sister hotel, called the Hotel Rahn, was erected next to the Farmers & Drovers in 1903 that today comprise's Max's main dining room and bar.

Many of the original decorative elements remain, including white ceramic tile walls and five colored patterned tile floors, brass accents and handsome bar. There are also historic photos and paintings adorning the walls, and historically appropriate wall paper.
