We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We celebrated my wife’s birthday there on Saturday for brunch. “Big Lou”, our waiter set the stage for a great afternoon. We will definitely be back!
As always, this is one of our favorite places to eat in all of Houston, and we will keep coming back time after time! Great service and super friendly all around!
Great we had a wonderful time everything was wonderful...
Our waiter Big Lou was AMAZING! I’ll request his section anytime I go again!
It was okay and the food took really long.
It was just okay. Nothing to brag about.
Ordered lobster omelet and requested for it to be scrambled. Sent it back because it was too salty and I felt the chef only used two eggs when a normal omelet calls for three. The waiter agreed. When I received the entree back it was the same amount of eggs...Not worth $23.
Loved being able to sit on the patio
As always, a great place to eat with great wine as well!
Really nice ambience! Restaurant was cold so food was almost instantly cold after served but was tasty. Very enjoyable experience and I will try it again!
This is hands down the best brunch in Houston! The jalapeno, buttermilk chicken is the best fried chicken that I've ever had, and the belgian style waffles are so thick and fluffy with a perfectly crisp exterior. The Creme Brulee' french toast is amazing. The service is prompt, friendly, respectful, and helpful.
I have always loved Max’s on Washington. This was my first visit since 2017. Atmosphere was great. Food was great. Company was great. But, our server was extremely rude and lacked customer service skills big time! She never even told us her name and acted as if we were a burden to her. Eww. Such a turn off to one of my favorite Houston establishments!!
Our waiter was great. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. We enjoyed our dining experience and will be back again soon.
We’re big fans of Max’s! Consistently great food and service. It’s one of our favorite places to eat!
Always love coming to Max’s it feels like home
We loved our waitress Kayla. She was very reassuring and full of energy. The food was absolutely delicious and came out in a timely manner. I will def be back for dinner.
Second time Max's while visiting Houston. Great and fast service, food was AWESOME!
As always, the food and service are great! We have made this a go-to and are never ever disappointed with anything!
Was great food
Great experience, great waiter , & great service
Food was great! I had chicken and waffles and that chicken was cooked to perfection. Waffles was great. Not cooked with cinnamon which I love.
$5 mimosas!! Can’t beat that.
Can’t wait to come back and eat again.
The food is AMAZING!!! I def will be back
Max's is a fantastic place with great food, great wine, and a great atmosphere. The champagne fried chicken salad is absolutely fantastic!
Food was delicious staff was great
Fried chicken and champagne!! Delicious!
The food was great! It was good to know that even though I hadn't been to the restaurant since the pandemic that the food quality hadn't gone down. I also liked that it appeared to be that they were practicing social distancing.
We have been here before to eat dinner, but never brunch. It was great! We went for my SO's birthday...that is a hefty mimosa. Honestly...this is the BEST burger I have had in Houston. I have been looking for a place that doesn't have the "smashed" burgers and this was flavorful and cooked to my preference. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
My SO loves the fried chicken here, because it's not the "hot" chicken. The service is always very good and friendly too.
Well done Max's! We'll see you next time.
Food was hot fresh & very tasty, drinks were great and their wine selection was superb!
Cute spot. Great wine choices. We went for brunch and had mimosas. Excellent service. Food was fresh and tasty. Will be back.
Thank you for the 5 Stars! We appreciate it and hope to see you again soon!
Server at the time had a stuffy nose, didn't wear mast over nose and hovered a little too close given the first two considerations. This used to be the place you go for fried chicken. On this day, it wasn't. very mediocre in cook and flavor. This visit was not very tasty relative to the caloric intake. I will hesitate going back.
I have gone to this location on numerous occasions and each time I visit, I get the same great service. I enjoy the food and the atmosphere. This will always be one of my favorite brunch spots.
This is always a great place to go for brunch. lunch and dinner.
Not recommended for brunch. Food was horrible. Bland and almost raw. Mimosas were tasteless also. Waiter was ok though so there’s that. Won’t be going back.
really great meal. Really appreciated the gluten-free options, particularly the crab-avocado salad, deviled eggs, and fried chicken (just need some gluten-free desserts!). As always great wines available from a friendly and helpful server. Really enjoyed the meal!
The only complaint we had was about some of the food not being warm/hot when it came out.
There were only, including me, three tables. So I do wish my server checked up on us more, but other than that it was perfect! The fried chicken was to die for (and I am very picky about my fried chicken)
Everything was great just wish the place was a little bigger .
Thank you for the 5 star review!
Food is amazing. Drinks are delicious. Service is exceptional!
Thank you for the awesome review, Gabrielle!
This was my first time there and I loved it. The food was amazing, service great, drinks even better. The atmosphere was awesome. Nice quiet place to hang out a little and have conversations. Very adult. Will definitely be back!
Thank you for the kind words and fantastic review! We appreciate it.
Great find and we are now becoming regulars! The food is fantastic and the personalities are great!
That's awesome! Thank you so much for the kind words. We hope to see you again soon!
