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!
I was not happy that the Houston Restaurants Week menu includes only half portions of the appetizer and dessert. It’s barely a good value with whole portions. It’s just a scam to not list on the menu you are giving half portions. It’s actually more expensive with the HRW menu. Also, the wine list gives no details on the wine, and the waitress was not helpful at all. I have been going to Max’s for many years and have always loved this place, but will NEVER go back since they are taking advantage of the Houston Restaurants Week menu and not stating the half portions when ordering.
Hi, Mike. We're sorry to disappoint you with our HRW portion sizes. We do our best to provide a great value to our guests and are sorry we let you down. We hope to see you again soon.
There were 6 of us in our party. And 5 out of the 6 had to send their meals back because it was cold, under cooked, or just inedible. We enjoyed the atmosphere and our waiter was awesome. Would try sgain
Service was great and the food was great. I drove from Lake Olympia, and was very pleased.
Wonderful and great experience always the best. Definitely be back soon
The food was delicious and the service was amazing!
Definitely enjoyed my experience at Max's yesterday. I was so happy to see that the restaurant was not booked to capacity and that they followed the social distancing ordinances. As always, the food was delicious, and the server was pleasant. I'll definitely be back soon!
Great experience. The staff was phenomenal. From out of town and definitely experienced Southern hospitality
My food wasn’t as good this time.. My French toast was burnt and dry, my chicken breast had hardly any breading, but my Frose was good!!
We enjoyed Max’s immensely! We’ll be back soon. SN: the best chicken fried steak I’ve ever had!!
Tim, my server was great! Food was good. Tables were blocked for proper social distancing. Staff were in face coverings.
Good experience and food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everything was amazing. The food was excellent & the atmosphere, superb! Can’t wait to come back!
Everything tasted great i had paper in my greens look like the paper that wrapped around the bunches when purchased.
It started rough at first, but they were able to recover. We got there and was seated for almost 10 minutes and no waitress. When we made the problem known, the situation was fixed immediately.
The fried chicken was amazing. I can’t stop thinking about it. I’ve told anyone who would listen about that chicken! Will definitely be returning soon.
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our first visit here. The food was AMAZING and service was great!
Our server was fantastic! We will be back!
Enjoyed a birthday brunch with my friends. Social distancing guidelines were in place and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. Will definitely visit again.
Great experience and great customer service made reservation and was seated soon as we arrived.
Honestly it felt very strange being out in a restaurant.
I’m from Dallas and I was super excited to eat here! The one in Dallas closed a couple years 😢 food is still as great as I remember!
Ask for Maxi, she was awesome! Fly by tacos and the grits & greens were amazing!! Definitely will be back!!
I’m so glad I stopped at Max’s Wine & Dive for brunch! I got the fried lobster and Mac and cheese and it was so delicious! It also came with a side of French toast to satisfy my sweet tooth! Definitely returning again!
I definitely recommend anyone in the mood for good wine and good food to choose this place. Every time I come I always enjoy myself. I can’t wait to return.
Great food, excellent service and a wonderful wine menu, what more could you want?
My second time visiting and they didn’t disappoint. Service was great, food was amazing. Wine selection was plentiful. I love this place. Will definitely be back soon.
Check it out it’s great. We made our reservation at 11 everything was amazing.
Great ! Everything was perfect.
Do not go to the Max’s on Washington St the food was under cooked and my order was completely wrong do to the fact our waitress attempted to take our order by memory versus writing down like I asked her.
Enjoyable as always
Food and atmosphere was great. I am never disappointed when I visit.
They didn’t honor what we requested on Open table, sent us to an unsanitized high top table, and also had a menu issue. Management said they don’t control what’s put on Open table and they aren’t about to lose money by letting us sit at the “non” high top table that we requested.
We love this location. Excellent wine list with great choices and value. The short rib, brisket and chuck burger was outstanding, and you must try their fantastic southern fried chicken.
Took my wife and kids for Mother's Day Brunch. Food was delicious as usual. Great service as well.
We went for Mother’s Day (except actually on Saturday). We made reservations. They only had 5-6 tables available for seating inside. Two tables on the patio/sidewalk out front. Service was excellent. And the food was amazing as always. Really enjoyed it. Not rushed. It was quiet. They cleaned tables as people left. They had on masks and gloves. You could get plasticware in request.
