We researched a few Houston brunch locations and you guys lived up to our expectations and we will be returning.
We had a short layover between Edmonton, Canada and Guatemala and decided brunch was in order. After a little online research it was decided (by she who must obeyed 😉) that MAXS was our destination. We booked with OpenTable and Uber'd over.
What a great decision, she had the Max & Cheese with fried chicken added and he had the Honey-Butter Benedict(substituted in the pink-pepper hollandaise) with home fries AND jalopeño-cheddar grits.
We would super-recommend MAXS.
It was all great and the bottle of Prosecco to wash things down was a great add on.
Sorry, no pictures as we dove in too fast!
Presentation was great, portions were excellent and our server Michael was fantastic!
Place was surprisingly quiet on a Friday evening, but that was ok. Service was ok, often lengthy periods without checking in on us. Food was good, but nothing super special. Prices were fair.
Was excellent as always!
We sat outside on the patio for Easter dinner. Everything was delicious.
Wasn’t To Nice The Service was Bad, No waiter came to my table for 10mins
I was very disappointed regarding the food.... we ordered your fried chicken platter and the waffles and wings the taste was that of old grease... and they were fried to fast because when we broke the wings apart they were ouzing blood" so gross" I just felt like the place was a bit overated..I thought this would be a good place to bring my Grandsons for easter brunch they were a bit disappointed also...Please change the oil that your frying your chicken in!
We had Easter Brunch at Max's Wine Dive Fairview location. The brunch dishes were positively decadent and the fried chicken was amazing as always. Don't miss the jalapeno grits--outstanding!
My favorite location between SA, Austin and the Houston locations. Even when slammed food comes flying out and is perfect. Servers always on point, Chicken utterly incredible and champagne always readily at have. Life pro tip: if you get the fried chicken, skip the collared greens and home fries and get two portions of jalapeno cheddar grits
Very nice time
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful! Armendari was an awesome server! She is super knowledgeable about the menu and gave us great suggestions!
Amazing fried chicken!
Service was great. Love the music, which is selected by the wait staff. Everything we ordered was delicious...fried oysters on wonton chips with chipotle sauce were very tasty for our appetizer. My seasonal entree short rib was tender and moist. My husband got the fried chicken, which was served very hot. He loved it. Oh, we sampled some wine, ordered a bottle. We live in the suburbs, drove in for dinner at 7,got home around 10! Nice evening.
Very disappointed. I go to the Washington location frequently but wanted to try this location. I usually get the wings and pancake but this time the wings were overcooked and the pancake had a thick layer of cream cheese icing that wasn't listed on the description, otherwise I would've asked for it not to be on there (I'm not a fan of cream cheese). The best part was the patio. We went on a beautiful Friday afternoon and there was a light breeze. If the food was good, it would've been a perfect experience but I don't think I'd return to this location unless I'm just having a drink on the patio..
Thank you Jacob, cooks, and team for a great late night dinner. We really appreciate your professionalism, great attitude, and fantastic food!
Have been to Max’s many times; this night very poor service and slow kitchen. Hope they fix it
Went for Sunday Brunch had a reservation but was not seated until 1 hour after because of lack of tables after we were seated it took 30 minutes for them to take our order then over a hour for us to get food our after.... only received a small apology from the Mgr who we saw eating at the line while we waited for food... tables sat after us were served before us. I’ll never come back up this location 2nd time and last time. Food is good but not that good.
Last Sunday I experienced the worst service ever. The waiter walked past our table about 7 times before acknowledge our presence. After we spoke to management about the horrible service she assured us that we would receive better service. That was definitely not the case, the waiter literally ignored us every time we would call his name or try to catch his attention. After sitting at the table for 45 minuets he decided to let us know that "he was too busy to take care of us." Needless to say I left and will never return.
Got email about no show. Actually was there albeit a little late. Guess hostess didn’t realize it was me.
Ordered the fried chicken salad. I asked for the chicken on the side. They brought it on the side but it was a bone on chicken breast. I asked them to remove the bones and slice it like it comes normally and the waiter brought back a cut up chicken breast with no batter. Looked like they had just dropped an in battered chicken breast in the fryer and cut it up. Very disappointing. I will not order that again. My husband and friend ordered the fried chicken Benedict. They were also let down when there were bones in their chicken thighs on the Benedict. All around a negative experience.
The NACHO MAMA’S OYSTERS and the BRAISED SHORT RIB are not to be missed! Great service with a great smile!
Perfect every time! You can’t go wrong with the Mac & Cheese
Service was slow and we were one of five tables. Don't think a server was assigned to our table/section. A guy was nice enough to take us after we waited a while. No beuno.
Great place to have a glass of good wine and a good meal. Great casual ambience! Will go again.
Fantastic 🍗. Like seriously good.
GET THE SHRIMP AAND GRITS!!! You’ll never want to eat shrimp and grits any where else ever again.
Also, my boyfriend really enjoyed the friend chicken.
After spending $315.00 for Valentines Dinner we came out to find our vehicle was broken into, right rear window was busted out, took my husbands work backpack, my tote bag both having personal items in it, called the police and when it was over 30 minutes for them to arrive my husband went back into Max's for assistance to contact the police that customers of theirs had their vehicle broken into, no assistance was received. If this is how you treat customers after leaving your restaurant spending a few hours and a few hundred dollars, rest assured WE WILL NOT GO BACK TO THE FAIRVIEW LOCATION!! #NOTHOUSTONSTRONG #NOTHOUSTONFRIENDLY

The self parking is horrible in rainy weather. Wear your rubber boots to wade through the parking lot. Small place. All the patrons stare at you when you walk in the door. dont know whatsup with that. The waitress was wonderful. The menu look like it probly is pretty good. My selection was decent. music too loud for such a small and intimate place.
My Birthday was wonderful. Excellent food and service.
Great service and great food!
As usual, MAX’s was the perfect brunch spot. Fried Chicken is moist and delicious! Egg Sandwich was perfection!
Their fried chicken was very good as expected. They had a peach cobbler that really hit the spot!
The seats are little too close to have a personal conversation and the waiter was very slow in taking orders. I like the Heights location better.
This place seems to have gone downhill. I ordered the Santorini omelet and it was not good. Runny filling, way to many olives and not enough cheese. My friend ordered the fried egg sandwich, also underwhelming. Over-priced mimosas, slow service. Too many good places in Houston to go back...
Didn't get served for almost 2 hours and the place was empty on a Friday... My bday dinner was ruined 😢
Seemed to be a little understaffed with wait staff, but they came through it fine. Food was cooked as ordered and good.
The servers were very attentive and everything tasted wonderful. The Happy hour food menu is short but the food is delicious
music was SUPER loud. unable to have any conversation.
