This place was great! As a diner during COVID-19, Max’s Wine Dive staff was wearing appropriate PPE, social distancing when necessary, and respectful of personal boundaries. The staff was quick to assist and the service was fast despite multiple online orders on a holiday weekend and potentially limited staff (I would have never known if this indeed was the case!).

Overall food was delicious! Really really really good fried chicken worth going back for!

Had a great evening on the patio, enjoyed the crispy deviled egg and stuffed peppers with cocktails and then enjoyed entrees including the fried chicken sliders and a bottle of wine - everything was delicious as usual!

Upon being seated at our table, we were never acknowledged or greeted. After 20 minutes, we flagged down the bartender to ask for water. Ended up getting our food to go instead.

Everything was great except for my food. My waffle was undercooked, my chicken was cold and everything was plated on an ice cold plate.

We sat outside but were disappointed since the valet offers a car wash service we had to listen to them vacuuming out cars which took away from the otherwise nice evening to eat outside.

Considering the impact of COVID-19 and the near 100 degree temperatures in Houston, TX, I planned accordingly and made a reservation to be seated inside with my party upon arrival. We arrived promptly at 12:30 only to be seated outside and was informed there would be a 30 minute wait. My party and I agreed to make an exception as we were hungrily excited to enjoy one of our old favorites. However, that is where the experience went sour. We waited approximately 15 minutes before we were greeted by a server that took our drink orders. We ordered a round of mimosas and waters for the table. The waiter took our food orders which consisted of shrimp n grits, (extra crispy) chicken and waffles, and fried chicken with collard greens, Mac and cheese. After waiting over an hour and having to track down several servers along with the manager our food was served to us cold and undercooked. The chicken still had blood in some parts and the Mac and cheese was cold to the touch. The only dish that was decent was the shrimp and grits. We longed for our waiter as we were waiting follow-up once the food was plated to share our concerns only to have to chase down a different waitress and finally go on the inside to speak with management yet again. The chicken was sent back and only half the waffle was consumed. After waiting for our waiter another 25 minutes, a member of my party went indoors to request the check. Upon delivery of the check, a manager was requested yet again, and he diligently listened to our laundry list of concerns. The manager offered to comp our meal up to 75% off and expresses his apologies. Our waiter returned to the table to retrieve our dishes and we requested a to-go box for the shrimp and grits as collectively decided to dine elsewhere. After waiting another 10 minutes for the to-go box and check to be picked up, a member of my party went inside to request management. Due to running out of space... the review will continued on Yelp and Google...

Happy to find a restaurant to eat outside, but then ended up on the side patio next to the compressor that was used to wash cars in the valet parking lot. It was hard to talk when the air compressor was running.

Had a wonderful brunch with friends from out of town. We all enjoyed our meals and drinks. Felt like the pricing could have been a little lower but overall we had a great experience. We reserved a table online, super great. Awesome waiter, and zero complaints on the atmosphere! I like to try new places, but if I cannot get in somewhere new next time I will defiantly make this a safe back up!

I have been to this location multiple times. My daughter was in town and chose this stop for brunch. After the waiter dropped off our drinks and food we were never checked on until I asked for the check. I choose a 11 am reservation in hopes of this location not being to busy to serve us. On the day we visited, I noticed a lack of servers. We tried the pineapple mimosas but wanted to try another before we left but was never ask.

My wife and I decided to dine here since we decided to head to Downtown Houston for our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. Christopher is absolutely amazing. You can tell when people love people and love what they do. He recommended the fried lobster tail with chicken. LISTEN....it was amazing, especially paired with Prosecco. Christopher just made a long time customer just by being himself and loving what he does.

This is the best fried chicken around . The batter is seasoned perfectly and the chicken is tender. The waffles are superb too.
