Max's Wine Dive - Dallas
Mother's DayI took my mom to Max's and she absolutely loved it. The chicken and waffles were on point not to mention the mimosas were on point. My mother was full and had a buzz. Fantastic Mother's Day!!!!!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day ExperienceEven with the high level of traffic due to Mother's Day, this place was able to maintain a quality experience!! I can't express enough how great my first experience was!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFor the soul-food-wine-bar TypeI took my mom to Max's for Mother's Day dinner. It was the first time for both of us, so we didn't know what to expect. My mom is a southern cookin', soul food type, and I'm more of a wine bar, sit-outside-on-a-nice-day type. We were both absolutely blown away by Max's food and atmosphere, even though we're looking for totally different things. I'm looking forward to visiting again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchI had the massive Red Velvet Pancakes which I couldn't even come close to finishing -- but I tried. I was thrilled to be able and purchase just one piece of chicken because of how good the batter sounded and it was as good as I thought it would be!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy children said it was theMy children said it was the best place they have been to . They loved the cinamon rolls and the waffles.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's day special,Great Mother's day special, Chef Patrick out did himself on that dish, Please bring back Fried Brussels Sprouts5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChicken and Wine at it's bestMax's Wine & Dive is a very good restaurant with a vast wine menu. The food & service was great. Go ahead and check this place out. You will not be disappointed.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGourmet Soul Food and MoreI would highly recommend this place. My friend introduced me to it a month ago, and I have already eaten there three times! Once for brunch, and twice for dinner. The Food Network likes their fried chicken, and I agree. The collard greens are slightly pickled and zesty! They are cooked perfectly, not overcooked and soggy like most others'. The pork stuffed peppers are an excellent appetizer. The Max and Cheese is a must try as well. My son does not normally like mac-n-cheese, but he'll eat theirs! The staff is also very friendly and attentive. If we didn't live 30 miles away, we might go more often!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMlove the experienceWinfield food and atmosphere! management went by all tables! they are looking to add some gluten free items in mid June!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat comfort food!I think we all left in a carb-coma! Food was so good we couldn't help ourselves - grits were to die for! Next time I'm definitely getting the RVP - they looked amazing! Fun spot, great outdoor dining and people watching. Will be back!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCinco de WOWWe had been to Max's before but were there on Cinco de Mayo for Brunch. I love that you can buy the champagne and they supply the juice to make your own mimosas. The juevos rancheros were wonderful as were the chicken and waffles and cinnamon rolls (there were 3 of us). Superb service even though they were incredibly busy. Make a reservation. We have never had to wait when we have one. Good job guys!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMax's GREAT wine and dive...The food was excellent.
The service was outstanding.
The atmosphere was inviting.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMax Wine DiveMaybe it is just me, but I guess it was OK. I am not a wine drinker. I went for the chicken & waffles and they were good. I guess I got what I wanted.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMdont bother w/ a reservationThe food is amazing and I will always come back for that, however, I have made reservations here 3 times and always had to wait at-least 30 minutes to be seated. Whats the point of a reservation then? The bar is packed, so you are having to stand in the middle of everyone with servers trying to get by at the same time. Once seated, service is okay, but definitely a perk to buying bottles instead of a glass of champagne or wine one at a time. Overall, great food, but they need to either say they dont take reservations or figure out how to accommodate for those people who have them.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy Goodness & Great AtmosphereI had been here before without my husband and knew I had to get him through the doors! The food was just as brilliant (maybe more!) than I remembered and my husband loved it just as much as I already did. Love love love the fact that Max's supports local growers and breweries.
Max and Cheese is hands down the best gourmet mac and cheese I've ever had the pleasure of tasting!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat times at MAX's!The wine selections were great (as you would expect with "wine" in the name of the establishment). The fried oysters to start were delicious, though a tad small. The fried chicken entree was fantastic - a highlight at our table. The short rib was also very good. All in all, we had a great time, with great food and great service. We'll return!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery energetic spot with wellVery energetic spot with well seasoned food. Our waiter was amazing.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe first time we came onThe first time we came on a sunday with 6 people, it was crowded and we should have made reservations. Reservations are a plus. Food was super hot and fresh. I got the wings and waffles, bf got creme brulee french toast! Mac and cheese is excellent! Have to try it, order a side order with your meal. It was chilly inside and the tables are really close together but enjoyed it!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMvery dish we ordered was great.very dish we ordered was great.

It was only my second time dining and I will have many brunches here.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Brunch SpotI had brunch with my partner and a couple friends here on Easter Sunday. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant and it has become a favorite of mine. My partner had the chicken fried steak and waffles, I had the french toast, one of our friends had the omelette, and our other friend had the lox and bagel. All of us loved the food and the mimomsas were just right. We will definitely be back! The service was outstanding and brunch was worth every penny.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome place!My boyfriend and I took his family to Max's for his parent's birthday. We had a blast. From the "Hook, Line, and Sinker" Rose' wine to the amazing fried chicken to the wonderful service and even an opera singing waiter...we can't wait to go back and take more of our friends. We loved everything Max's had to offer.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is awesome! TheThis place is awesome!

Love love loved it... will definitely come back for this.
The fried egg sandwich is humongous and tasty but I probably would not order that again.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI absolutely love Max's WineI absolutely love Max's Wine Dive, the waiter wasn't that good, but the food totally made up for it. Great brunch, will definitely go bak for the dinner menu!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was wonderful, includingThe staff was wonderful, including the manager who checked on us more than once. All food was outstanding except the red velvet pancakes. I'm not one to send back food but they were so hard I could not cut them with a fork. The second plate had the same problem. Both the waitress and manager were very apologetic and took the item off our check. The fried chicken, chicken fried steak, waffles, and mimosas were all very delicious. This might be my new favorite place for fried chicken. The noise level was a little loud for my liking, but maybe it was because we were next to two large parties. We will definitely go back but will stay away from the red velvet pancakes.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed my food here. MyI enjoyed my food here. My only complaint would be that portions of some menu choices could be larger for the price and there could be a little more variety. I liked the vibe and would definitely return.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter countless hours andAfter countless hours and days of searching, I stumbled upon Max's Wine Dive and decided this would be a perfect restaurant to celebrate my birthday with friends. Max's has a magnificent selection of wine n a winning budget friendly menu that pleased everyone inmy party. The ambiance was evening perfect host/hostess was very accommodating.

I meet friends their for brunch and everyone was pleased.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOn a recent brunch visit,On a recent brunch visit, I had both my carnivore husband and a vegetarian friend from out of town in tow. Max's satisfied everyone. My husband had the fried chicken (crispy and delicious), my friend had the red velvet pancakes (fluffy and not too sweet), and I had the huge fried egg sandwich (perfect amount of truffle oil). My husband ate it all but my friend and I had half our plates left for a second meal. We also bought a bottle of champagne with all the fruit juices we could mix for mimosas. We arrived before the crowd but the staff was perfectly attentive throughout the entire meal. Perfect outing!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery item of food we triedEvery item of food we tried was great - peppers stuffed with pulled pork, shrimp and grits, and the ahi tuna - wine selections were broad. Our waiter brought us a complimentary sip of Malbec since that is our favorite varietal.

Max's was great. I have been to the one in Austin a lot, another person had been to the one in Houston. The wine pricing is great. Really awesome deals. We ordered some food and asked Denton for suggestions. He suggested short rib on the Mac n cheese. Awesome! We got two orders. We ordered a lot of food, too much. The fish was a bit fishey, but everything else was awesome. I will definitely be back. It wasn't loud and the service was great. Denton brought over some samples for us to try and suggested some new wines for us to try. Overall a very good experience.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWish the chicken and wafflesWish the chicken and waffles had been easier to eat! You had to eat them separately and you don't get the full flavor.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Experience!Excellent location to enjoy great wines and spend time with friends. The food was also great with different selections to tantalize the palate. I must say the WaitStaff and Service was wonderful which was a great reflection of the Asst General Manager Jimmy!
