This is the second time I have had this particular waiter in a 2 month span. The first time I felt that he was a little overwhelmed because it was a larger crowd. That is expected. On yesterday I got the same guy and it was about four of us. The first thing was it took about 30 mins for someone to even recognize that I have not been waited on, not so much as a glass of water. I did not initially complain about that because I was waiting on a few friends to join me. Once they got there the waiter was mixing up our orders and checks and again seemed very overwhelmed. I am not sure if he had too many tables but since this was my second time with him it became very frustrating that I couldn’t enjoy my meal.

This was our 4th or 5th time at Max's. Food was excellent as usual, wine recommendation was excellent as well. Sat at one of the "high tables" this time - not as comfortable seating as the tables along the wall. Service was good for the most part - waiter "disappeared" for long stretches a couple times, especially towards the end when we were wanting/needing our check.

Max's is always a treat but Saturday's brunch was awesome our group ended up being 14 people & our waiter i wish i could remember his name was FANTASTIC! A big rowdy group can be tough to handle but he did it like a champ & allowed us to have a blasts. thank you!

MAX’s is my go to spot where I know the Mimosas and good will be good. The place is always packed, so make sure you make a reservation so you won’t spoil that appetite by waiting.

We have never been disappointed in the terrific food at Max’s. Add to that the very friendly, efficient, and personal service we receive from our waiter, Manny, and this is one of our “go-to” spots, where we know we will not be disappointed.

Waited over an hour to get food for table of 4. The specialty southern fried chicken is not as good as remembered. Was poorly battered missing half on each piece

I am from NYC visiting the parents in Houston for Mother’s Day. MAX’s was vibrant, great energy. Staff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Drinks were awesome, had the bloody Mary’s and champagne. Glass was skunky, waiter switched it out immediately. Chicken was divine, deviled eggs with fried oyster on top delightful. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Will be coming back when in Houston again.

Went with a group - the fried chicken was awesome as that is what they are best known for but everything else was very mediocre. If you want good wine and that specific dish have-at-it but it wouldn't be our first or second choice for a dinner out with friends in the future.

The changes to the menu is very sad. Everything I came for is simply gone. Good bye Max's... this was my last visit. Simply good, no longer great. Your no longer a destination worth the drive.

Delightful evening on the patio. Sat by the monthly wine tasting and definitely want to return for that. Oysters and egg sandwich were wonderful as usual and the grilled cheese was slap yo’ mama great!

Max’s is our “go to” place for late-night dining! The food always exceeds expectations, and the service staff is well-trained and super friendly! On this recent visit, our server was Manny, and he was top-notch! Thanks, Manny, for making it such a great night out!

This is our preferred location; we tried the one on Washington and the ambiance here is better and the opportunity for seating outside when the weather warrants. Service was excellent as were the mimosas and the variety of selections for brunch.

Another fabulous experience at Max's. I had the butcher's omelet and my guest had the smoked salmon benedict. Both were excellent dishes. Our server Reese was attentive but not intrusive. I love having brunch here.

The dining experience was great as always. We hadn’t been in a few months and were excited about the new changes. We tried the featured deviled eggs which were absolutely delicious!!!! We also tried the new Koolaid Mimosas they were nice and refreshing! We enjoyed the experience so much, we made reservations for the next day for brunch! The staff were all amazing, accommodating made us feel like VIP!!! Thanks to Kim and the amazing team at MAX’s!!!

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!

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!
