We were seated on the patio. The valet parked vintage trucks with exhaust facing the patio. Owners of trucks started very loud engines which was at a decibel level dangerous to those around. Also continued to keep trucks running with exhaust filling the patio. Valet could not control the situation, management could not control the situation. Worst dining experience ever! But our waiter was fabulous! Vintage cars with no current exhaust system should not be parked near patios. In fact, with outdoor dining, no cars should be parked near seated guests.

We like Max’s Wine place. But this time everything seemed to be off. First the drink delivery took unusually long. The poached eggs were cooked ; the overeasy requests for the other 2 meals were over hard. The gravy on the meals was super skimpy making the meal pretty dry. was very disappointed this time. Very unusual.

The food was great and didn’t take too long to make it to the table. The caramelized pineapple mimosa was way better than I thought it would be. Also try the deviled eggs and frose when you go.

Got multiple dishes and they weren’t good at all. Pancakes and chicken were very bland and the Patriot burger was the size of kids burger and looked nothing like the one pictured. I was highly unsatisfied.

We sat on the patio and it was a bit much with the car washing & the band. Waffles and chicken was excellent! Greens not so much.

The food was delish! The hubby and I went decided to try Max’s Wine Dive for date night. Service could’ve been better. Our waiter was polite and helpful, but hard to find at times. The wine he recommended was yummy.

I ordered the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and collard greens. Chicken was seasoned ok, the breading is yummy. Mashed potatoes weren’t anything special. But the greens? Some of the best we have ever had, and we’ve had some tasty greens.

My hubby had the black bean burger which did not fill him up he. So he ordered the fried lobster which came with the mashed potatoes and greens.

We will be back!

We love Max's and frequent there often. Unfortunately, they have become busier and have implemented a new policy of limiting your dining time. For 2 people, you are limited to an hour and 30 minutes. We were not told this when we sat down. Instead 5 minutes before our time limit was up, we were told the next reservation had arrived and we needed to leave. We had just barely finished our food and had not finished our bottle of champagne. The manager apologized and explained this was a new policy and we should have been told up front. The service and food was great, this was just not a pleasant way to end our meal. We will still recommend and visit Max's but beware of this new policy!

Everything was great. Servers, managers and bus boys were very attentive. Keep our table clean. Drinks and food was hot and prompt. However, they run on reservations and will let you know if your over your allotted time. Kinda killed my bunch date

This is my second time coming to Max’s and the ambiance was amazing as always and I love the food and the portions they serve. The only thing that was off putting was our server - he wasn’t very focused on our table and he disappeared a lot. Besides that everything was great as usual. I would dine there again. I just hope to not get that server.

The waffle was plain little to no flavor, cold and syrup was not good at all.... the chicken was not fully cooked. I had one piece of chicken and ate off my date plate.
The price for the dinner was not worth it.... 18 bucks for chicken wings n waffles no other side is not good. The total bill was 85 buck.... very disappointing.

Great a atmosphere and staff was the best. The good has been better. Lobster was not seasoned well and the greens were dry and salty. I will stick with going there during the week rather than weekend.

The overall vibe was comfortable but busy which is what you expect going to this place since you need a reservation to even get in during brunch! The food has a great taste (from what I’ve ordered which is the waffles, deviled eggs and chicken and waffles) and the service isn’t lacking.

Thank you so much for saying that. It means a lot to us. During these strange times, we are trying really hard to adapt and overcome. I'm also really glad Oliver took great care of you! He's one of our best.
