Took a bunch of my girlfriends here for dinner. The wine and food were amazing and we all loved the ambiance. Their fried chicken is amazing and the majority of us had the chipotle honey chicken sliders (my fave). We started with the brussel sprouts and the deviled eggs and both were outstanding. Highly recommend for a girls night, date night, or just for delicious food!

Love this place.
Yummy variety of unique dishes that showcase their delicious fried chicken. I've been for brunch several times as I LOVE their bottomless Mimosas that allow you to switch around between splashes of orange, grapefruit, and cranberry juices.

Our brunch party enjoyed the deviled eggs, chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, and the breakfast bowl. Great service! Mimosas are a perfect sparkling wine/juice ratio (just a splash).

I have been here many times - it had just been a while. I appreciates it was a little quieter this time - the music there sometimes that I can hear the person across from me. Our food (brunch) however was not as good as other times. It wasn’t super hot and just wasn’t that good - and for those 2 things to be true — it felt overpriced. Maybe it was just this time, but I’m not super excited to go back at this time.

We were very happy with Max Wine Dive. The food was great and the fact that they make "normal" dishes such as meatloaf and fried chicken available in a form that those with Celiac can eat is HUGE. Our server was exemplary, the light levels were low and intimate. All in all it makes for a very cozy, unintimidating and thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thanks to all

My husband & I visited four restaurants during restaurant week & Max’s is tied for our favorite. The fried devil eggs were amazing. Fried chicken & meatloaf were fantastic. I even liked the collards, which is not a usual thing for me. The happy hour menu looks great & we plan to visit again very soon.

Ambiance was good but they have crammed way too many tables in this place. We were there for restaurant week and food was ok but nothing special Fried chicken was pretty good but there are plenty of other places that are much better. Veggie Curry was also ok, but not memorable. The Mac n Cheese was on point. Value was good for the set menu price but full menu price is excessive for what they deliver. Wanted to like this place but we won't be back.

I really like the ambiance, even the energetic noise level, which I usually do not appreciate. I think the wine list was quite good and affordable. I have only eaten there once but I do not remember the fried chicken be so salty as it was during the most recent visit. The collard greens were tasteless and fries (instead of mashed potatoes) soggy.

The food is delicious... just so overpriced! This is the second time I've been to Max's. The first time was a few years ago when it opened, and I decided to give it a second chance. We went for happy hour in the hopes we could get some bites for a better price, but even the happy hour menu is not much of a deal. We got the stuffed peppers and there were only 2 and they were extremely tiny. For dinner, I got the fried chicken sliders since all of the entrees were too expensive. The sandwiches were great, but not for $16. I want to love this place because I like the vibe and of course they have a great wine menu... but it's just not worth it for the price.
