You can never go wrong with Max’s, I’ve never left this establishment dissatisfied nor have I ever had a complaint. They always have a great wine selection and knowledgeable staff.

I always get the jalapeno fried chicken and it wasn't that flavorful this time. In addition, my wife's shrimp and grits were runny and didn't have much taste. Definitely over-priced for what we received.

It’s a dive but it’s wonderful. Always enjoyable with well executed dishes and a good choice of wine. Usually a surprise available too. We seem to hurry back often.

My wife and I grabbed two excellent burgers and a carafe of house red. Food and service were excellent, but we thought $95 was a bit steep.

This was my second time dining at Max’s for brunch. My first experience was much better. They were not adequately staffed. We ordered two desserts (same) and they were not as described. A side of cold sweet potatoes is NOT bourbon Carmel sauce.

This was my first time dining at Max's Wine. I invited my mother in law as she had never been either. We had a great time! The food was great and the portions were a nice size. We will be back soon.

Enjoyed brunch for 4. They keep changing the menu, but still everything we ordered was really good. Server wasn't all that attentive - we were hoping to order something similar to the Biscuits and Gravy Stack that they used to have on the menu. Seems like it could have been done since it was just biscuits, gravy, sausage and bacon stacked on top of each other, but he didnt want to listen and just offered another dish instead of what we were looking for. Other than that, it was a good time.

Don't expect service from the front desk. The point of having a reservation is so we can have a table and not a high top in the bar area.

Mimosas were as disappointing as the mac n cheese.

Not sure what kind of orange juice they use, but it was a kind I've never had.

Mac n cheese had no taste. Even adding bacon couldn't help it.

Too noisy to talk.

Chicken was hot and great!

The Pancakes, French Toast and Waffles were cold; had to have all the bread items sentback back and microwaved .The butter would not even melt on these items.
We drove 35 miles each way to come because we were told how great the food is.
We were really excited for our first visit. Very disappointed about the brunch.

Angel was my waitress and was absolutely wonderful. She was not annoyed with me when I wanted to change tables or wait for my friend before ordering a drink. She was not overly hovering around us and did not pressure us to leave. Over all an absolute pleasant experience.
