    I love the atmosphere. I had the burger and it was pretty good but overpriced for just pretty good. The service was okay. The wine was excellent. Maybe I'll be back.

    Their french toast has to be some of the best french toast I've ever had! The batter is so sweet, you don't even need syrup! Oh, and the fried chicken definitely lived up to the hype!

    The fried chicken is the thing to get, no question about it. Ask for is spicy (off menu)!

    Try the fried egg sandwich with two slices of truffle-mayo-slathered sourdough and ends with a buttery mess all over your hands and face. Read more

    Good food, but was really disappointed with the server and manager. I had asked them to save my payment on file so the bill could be taken care of in advance, but apparently it was forgotten about.

    Max's Wine Dive owes its name to the combination of a terrific Texas "dive" menu with chili dogs & mussels steamed in Lone Star beer, & an innovative wine list that's ahead of the rest of the city. Read more

    At Max's Wine Dive, the chicken requires a 36-hour buttermilk marinade that helps tenderize the bird. But, in this case, the marinade doesn't stop at just buttermilk. Read more

    Refreshingly free of wine-bar pretense, Max's serves top-notch vino with a side of country music and comfort food. Pair a Purple Angel with Gruyere grilled cheese. Read more

    While the Mac and cheese was fantastic, the chicken and fish and chips were truly sub par. It is way overpriced for what it is. I will admit it has a decent wine selection. Service was good tho!

    Red Velvet Pancakes!!!! Nuf' said!

    The Eggs MAX are to die for at brunch - collard greens were the best part. Ask for Josh and he will treat you like family :-)

    Grilled cheese is terrible. I was expecting a hot buttery cheesy sandwich which it was not. Mediocre mild shredded cheese And the lukewarm Campbell's tomato soup is terrible too. Ridiculous "gourmet".

    Max and cheese is amazing. Definitely must try

    Martin Vicente · January 26, 2014
  • Rachel M.

    The creme brûlée French toast and chicken fried ribeye are out of this world delicious.

    Rachel Matthews · September 29, 2013

    Disregard the lying hostess and insist on a table you prefer if she sends you to the back or close to the restrooms, she is unprofessional but the fried chicken is excellent.

    The MAX and cheese with truffle cream sauce is fantastic. The banana bread pudding and ice cream was even better! Great $6 happy hour deals.
