Great as usual!
Our service today was good, but usually service is impeccable. We were also going to try out the gluten free fried chicken and fish and chips that were advertised on Facebook. Unfortunately, they weren't doing it during Sunday brunch.
However, we did have a great gluten free brunch!!!

Max's Wine Dive - great local gem!
Celebrated a friends' 40th birthday before the Spurs game Monday night. We had a great time at Max's! Even though we were a little pressed for time Max's staff did a great job in taking good care of us - would definitely recommend.

Yummy but really greasy
We ordered the fried chicken which was really yummy but OMG greasy. The fried shrimp and crab salad were to die for. The grilled cheese and tomatoe soup were out of this world amazing, but completely saturated with butter which some would argue is how it should be. Upon my return I shall order the crab salad as it was the most stand out dish that did not make me feel as if I had ingested 8000 calories. Truly a delicious place. Tables were warped and water logged, chipping in places. Outside dining is exceptional.

This was my first time to Max's but do not intend for it to be my last! The service was great, the ambiance fit the intended scene (I believe) but most of all, the flavors of the food were fantastic! Everything meshed together and no flavor was over powered by another. I have every intention of going again. The menu had so many great looking options, I couldn't decide on which to try first.

Created a Wonderful Memory
We chose a new place to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary and Max's did not disappoint!!!! We were treated so well. The staff celebrated our anniversary with us by surprising us with Happy Anniversary wishes as we checked in for our reservation. Our server Jennifer was simply outstanding! Her recommendations were excellent and delicious. Words cannot convey how much we appreciate their kindness, consideration and generosity. I've already recommended this restaurant to friends. The food was decadent! We are sooooo glad we visited Max's. Thank you for making our night out to celebrate our 27 years together so wonderfully memorable.

The close French-style couples seating was less than desirable. My elbows were touching the people on either side of me. We called ahead and made a reservation, so the excuse that "every other table" was reserved did not go over well with me. We were offered another choice and we took it, even though that choice was almost as bad and the hostess was not nice about it, at all. Quite condescending.

Always a pleasure!
Have yet to find something bad. i have been here frequently. Always a favorite
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun Atmosphere....Good Food.
Had the fried chicken with a shiner. Friend chicken was delicious and so were the mash and collard greens. Great wine selection and music was appropriate considering the crowd. Will definitely go back, there are more things on the menu I wantto try.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
We go to Max's a few times a month and we are always extremely happy!

I love this place!
I always keep finding my self back and back again at this place! I can not live without MAX's!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was delicious as always, tough I think their prices have increase a little recently. Today's service was not as good as it usually is; I'll definitely return and count tonight as an exception.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything Was Fantastic
Everything we had from the wine and beer to appetizers to dinner and even dessert was great. Loved the presentation of the food as well. Some of the best food I've ever eaten in San Antonio.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always we enjoyed our dinning experience at Max's Wine Dive! We love how the Chef's menu changes with the season, always tasty creations! We had the Scallops & Tuna dish and it was so delish!!! Can't wait to go again!

Great Girls Night Out!
There were seven of us at dinner & we were celebrating a birthday. We ordered tons of food to share (Pan Borracho, Mac & cheese, stuffed peppers, chicken sliders, shrimp & grits, & Cobb salad) & everything was fantastic! None of us could deide which was our face bc we loved them all. Great food, great wine, & great service! Abby was so attentive & very helpful when we were ordering.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pan boracho, champagne, and fried chicken. Can't beat it.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place. Went in on Thursday night and it was very busy. Caught tail end of happy hour.

I loved this place - atmosphere fantastic. Food delicious with service just as good.

Excellent wine selection and
Excellent wine selection and type. Service was under-par. Had to wait a long time for refills and even longer if you order tea or non-alcoholic drink. wonderful overall feel of the place.

Food was good as usual. Seated
Food was good as usual. Seated next to a door and 100 degrees outside. Not comfortable. Chicken cobb salad very refreshing.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took the wife there for her birthday and loved every moment of it. The ambience was awesome! They have an extensive wine list and the food was classically delicious. A must go for the known foodie.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Wine
My husband brought me to Max's Wine Dive for dinner during my birthday weekend and we had a great time! They have a large wine list...as expected and great year round and seasonal menus. I came back a few weeks later to have brunch with a friend and although the atmosphere and service attentiveness was lessened, I would come back.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Max's Wine is excellent! We are looking forward to going back soon! Food is superior!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I love this place! The food and wine are always top notch as is the service! I love the pulled pork stuffed peppers! We had a reservation and walked right in and were escorted to our table! We will be back soon!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best of. New and old
It was a great experience of a modern menu with excellent food while a mix of great old rock and roll and country played in the background. Wait staff was friendly and help to improve the experiance
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was great-thank you Esme! The oyster nacho appetizer was yummy. Shrimp and grits was all I expected and more!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the concept
Love the concept, love the wine - good food, but why does it always take so long for the food to come out? Really want to like this place, but be prepared to wait for your food. Don't go very often - love the fried chicken - I always enjoy the food and the wine - it's just the wait......
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great overall dining experience
Had a great time at the restaurant. The hostess was able to seat me according to my preferences and there wasn't a long wait for any sort of service (water, seating, food, etc). Our server, Stacy, was very knowledgeable and helpful with our wine and food options for my party.
The restaurant can get crowded at times, but that's what open table is for! Parking can sometime's be hard to find if Trader Joe's is open but if not I would park near there.

Best Fried Chicken in San Antonio
We love this place. It is one our guilty pleasures. (healthy - NO - delicious - YES) - if you get the chicken substitute the potatoes for the mac and cheese and don't skip the greens. They are amazing.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Date Night with friends
On our way to watch a comic downtown SA, and of course we wanted good good at a decent price, with a great selection of wine and beer. This is that place! Not our first time but my first time ordering the fried chicken, and it lives up to the hype!
Only bad deal is the waitress tries to sell you wine at retail if you ordered wine with dinner.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the shrimp and grits -
Had the shrimp and grits - it was very good. Service was slow and unenthusiastic. Music was too loud, could not hear the server or my dinner partner.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great staff and stuffed peppers!
I enjoyed the pork stuffed peppers and collard greens; the "crazy bread", however, was disappointing (too mushy/odd texture). Clarissa was a friendly, efficient server. Super-triple-bonus-points and thanks to her, the management and kitchen staff for going to great lengths to ensure that the "Max and cheese" was safe for my son to eat (he is allergic to eggs, all nuts and seeds). To my son's delight, he was able to enjoy the bowl of hot, creamy pasta (without fear of needing a jab from the epi-pen and a trip to the hospital!). The employees are always smiling, hospitable and helpful!
9/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Ladies Nite out spot. Good food and wine selection, and location is perfect.
If you are trying to make a movie, give yourself time to linger, the food takes a while.
The wait is worth it, and you can drink more wine :)
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been several times. Service
Have been several times. Service has declined but food was good. Sent friends of ours there after taking therm to Austin Max's. They were really impressed with Austin but bvery dissapointed with SA. Their Service and food was not good.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great brunch.
We always enjoy brunch at Max's. Great food and service. Didn't have any of our regular servers and the one we had wasn't quite as attentive as usual. However, the service was still good. Always my fave brunch spot.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friday Night Fun
This place is perfect for a Friday night hang out with your pals. You can sit back and enjoy good eats and a glass of wine if you desire. The service is quick and friendly and the atmosphere is energetic and inviting. I haven't had a bad experience here yet so that is a plus.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Make reservations if you go on a busy night. Always try new wines, we have never had the same one twice. Food is some of the best cheese platter is great, my husband enjoyed the Hawt Dog and I thoroughly enjoyed the grilled cheese and tomato soup. Ambience and service are amazing always. Can't wait to go back!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Girlfriends night out
Since my friends rely on my to choose the restaurant whenever we get together, Max's was a no brainer. I've been craving the fried chicken for months. We all enjoyed our meals. The server was personable and knew the menu well, guiding my friends through the menu. One chose the grilled cheese and tomato soup, the other had the chicken. All was great. We can't wait to go back.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Night with my Husband
Love going to Max's...only this time I found the food to be WAY too salty...and that was a big disappointment. Our waitress was a gem!!! I'll ask for her every time!!!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and wine, of course
Great date night location. Incredible wine selection. They will pour a sample of wine, no charge for most wines they have "open". The shrimp and grits is something to come back for more. Unique and good.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Eclectic and excellent
Took my daughter and her two college roommates to Max's for Sunday Brunch. Wow, great and reasonably priced brunch. The "Drunken Bread" was a lip-smacking and savory eggy bread pudding. The Fried egg sandwich and mac-n-cheese had just the right amount of earthy truffle oil. The diner who chose the chicken and waffles was thrilled with the great tender and crispy chicken and savory waffle. And then wash it down with fresh squeezed orange juice and $5 mimosas, how can you go wrong?
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding, as always
The food and wine at Max's was outstanding, as is usually the case when we visit. My wife and I shared a trio of small plates and a few glasses from the list of bold reds. Max's is a go to destination when we want a nice dinner out. Try it...you won't be disappointed.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great place with a solid menu backed up by a huge wine list. Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable and will encourage youbto taste before you buy. If you really like what you drank their case prices (mix allowed) are hard to beat.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
As Always, Perfect. Thank you for making it an experience for our out of town guest!

Max's continues to shine
Starting with the friendly greeting at the door - with the help of our superb server Eric once again Max's shows how much fun and enjoyment you can have at a restaurant. The famous fried chicken and Mac n Cheese are worth the trip alone. In addition the other small paltes- the pulled pork stuffed peppers, the shrimp fritters were excellent. For our party of four we decided to order several small paltes to share to avoid missing any treats - finishing with Bison sliders. The wine choices made by Eric were excellent and the local beers that 2 of our party had were also excellent. Completing the evening with a Pumpkin cheesecake and a special brownie left us with full stomachs and a smile. Kudos again to Eric and the staff

MAX's Wine Dive is AWESOME!
Great food, great wine, great atmosphere!! You can't go wrong at Max's!! EVERYTHING on the menu is excellent!!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Maxx's Wine Dive has some of the most spectacular fried chicken as well as eclectic menu that will please any foodie. Last night special (Citrus Sea Bass) was fantastic! It was accompanied by Kale, Beets, and grapefruit gastric...no complaints - the bass was so flaky and flavorful. The service was on point plus they served my favorite Indian Pale Ale (Stone IPA). My wife came away with a bottle of wine as well. I will definitely return for another date night in the future. Disclaimer: It was pricey, but worth it!
