The fried chicken was great, but be prepared to pay $4 for a drumstick. No merlot by the glass, but others were available. Ordered chef Patrick's short rib which was delicious, but not worth $25, maybe $20. Marcie made the experience good and guitarist was a welcomed relief to the loud dark music that they had on before. Won't be back, just not a good value. Too many other great eateries in Uptown to measure up to.

Our waiter Jerry was the best. He was very tentative. He also made sure to explain the menu and everyone understood.

Food was very good. Fried chicken slider starter would've been fine for an entree. Shrimp and grits were very good and the CFS was massive and crispy. Last Judgement wine was good enough that I bought three bottles to take home.

I've heard so much about Max's from friends and social media so when me and my cousin setup a Brunch date I thought this would be a great choice. I made reservations for 12:45 on a Sunday, the place was packed but we were seated right away on the cover outside patio. We started off with the Cinnamon Roll which was served on a hot plate however the Roll was cold and dry. Me and one of my cousins had the chicken and waffles... I can say the chicken was good but the waffles were very hard. My other cousin tried the red velvet pancake which she stated was very dry. She did state the chicken fried steak was seasoned well and very tasty. Our overall experience at Max's was just ok nothing stood out for a repeat visit.

I brought my husband and mother-in-law here for brunch. My husband and I frequent Max's Wine Dive on a regular basis. This time I decided to bring his mom as well. So we chose Max's without a second thought. I ordered my wings CRISPY and did not receive as requested. Although I was disappointed, I did not send my order back or tell the server my order was not as I requested. This was the first time my order was not perfect. With the horror stories of ppl adding EXTRA to food that's been sent back, I kept it to myself. Our server; JaMail was sooo OUTSTANDING!!! Although, my order wasn't perfect, I will come to Max's Wine Dive again and again.

Max's is great for southern comfort cooking, but like southern comfort cooking, the portions are big and the food is filling. The bar is fine for wine and mixed drinks, but the tap beer selections is only so-so. Great for weekdays, but avoid on weekend nights when it gets so scene-y and crowded, it's impossible.

The server we had kept asking if we wanted add-ons (that we didn't know were add-ons) and when we said yes charged us for things that we didn't know we would be charged for. Also charged us for an extra order of bread... it seemed like he was trying to find any little thing that would bring our bill higher. The manager took care of it but it was still a bad experience.

The food was good, but it took over an hour to get to us which was also kind of ridiculous as they weren't that busy.

I've eaten at this restaurant before with my homegirls and we enjoyed ourselves. Took my Mom here for Mother's Day so that we could try the RVP. They were excellent and huge. The jalepeno grits were good as well and we washed it down with Mirmosa's.

Food is good, just wish they had more healthier options and not everything fired. Service is good, waitress was knowledgeable about beer and wine selection. Out door patio is pretty open and friendly, This place is great for happy hour.

Solid but not awe inspiring comfort food go well with a really stout wine list, cool environment, and nice scene. Some of the vintage champagne was selling near retail, as opposed to a massive markup. The glass list has interesting offerings, and the flights were bold. I'm a wine guy, and will go back for the wine. The egg sandwich, borracho bread, shrimp and grits, piquillo peppers were all good, not great. The coffee at the end of the night was not hot. But again, it's about the wine.

I've been before to Max's however this time the service was incredibly slow. It took 20 mins for someone to acknowledge us then 45 mins for the food to arrive. It became a game for my husband and I to try to catch and get as much out if the waiter as we could when he walked past us. We asked for the check as soon as the food arrived but it still took unreasonably long. Maybe it was just an off night however, it was our anniversary and we just found this not to be the best place for great service on special occasions. The food was just ok.

The food was awesome, I had the Red Velvet Pancakes and my daughter had the Creme Brulee French Toast, they were both excellent. I wished that the service would have been better, glasses were left empty, it seemed like after the food was dropped off we were left to fend for ourselves. I do take into account that it was Easter and they were very busy. I would definately give Max's another try.

We headed to Max's wine dive after dinner for my best friend's batchelorette party. We had a reservation for 7. We were seated at a terrible table between the door and the bar. Servers kept bumping into the girls on the side of the table next to the bar. Because of the noise (mostly from McKinney ave, but also the other diners) we couldn't hear anything. We were shouting the whole time. Then they ran out of the champagne we were drinking that had been chilled. Really? You're a wine bar. Shouldn't you have multiple bottles chilled if you have a table where three people are drinking it? Our server was a bit annoying, but that could've been my annoyance with the establishment spilling over. I WON'T be back. Ever.

Maxs is one of our favorite places in West Village! Everything I've ever had on the menu was fantastic. My favorites are the sliders and the fried chicken - - make sure you ask for the Chipotle honey!!!!!! It puts the chicken totally over the edge from great to unbelievable! Definitely make a reservation on OpenTable if you plan on going on a weekend night, though!
