Robert Cooke

Bob Cooke developed a great passion for seafood while growing up on the Connecticut shore.  He started lobstering in the “Sound” at the age of fifteen after realizing it was a great way to get the delicacy easily and inexpensively.


General Manager

Shawn Jones

Shawn Jones grew up in East Hartford, CT and fell in love with food early on in life from spending time in my family kitchen with his mother and especially his "Nanny". As he grew older, learning about wine became a passion of his that he now enjoys sharing that knowledge with co-workers and guests.

Shawn was a longtime partner for Outback Steakhouse in New London, CT (and was even named 2007 Partner of the Year) and worked at Bonefish Grill in South Windsor, CT before joining the Max Restaurant Group. When he's not working at Max's Oyster Bar, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children. And in his house, football is life! 



The Max Restaurant Group is always looking to expand our team. We offer competitive wages, a generous benefits package, flexible hours and the opportunity to grow with the company. Join the most respected restaurant group in Southern New England and you will have the opportunity to experience and learn the hospitality industry from visionary Chefs and seasoned Restaurant Managers.
