Champagne and fried Chicken...Why Not!!!

Was there last night for the first time with my wife at the Washington Ave location. It was busy so we ate at the bar and I must say the bartender was awesome. He was very knowledgeable on the wines and gave us some samples. Then we ordered and I must say I had the best fried chicken I ever... read more

Max's is one of my favorite spots on Washington. Max's is a perfect place for Eggs Benedict & Mimosas on a Sunday. I also love how the kitchen is open late so you can enjoy an appetizer & glass of wine. :)

I consider myself a home grown fried chicken connoisseur. I compare every fried chicken entree I get to my Mamaw's recipe. I'm always searching for that place that can give me what she did growing up. I think before I get ahead of myself, let's start with the wine. We went for the EF wines on tap, and they were... More

Max's is one of my favorite places to go in Houston. My boyfriend always has the award winning chicken & waffles which is really delicious. Last time I tried the stuffed peppers & cornbread...wow! The peppers come with sauce on the side but its so good that it doesn't even need extra sauce. Also, you have to try the goo... More

Make reservations for Saturday brunch. Valet park. Order eggs Benedict and a Mimosa. Make sure your friend/spouse orders chicken & pancakes. You will receive great service and enjoy yourself! Perfect. Host, waitress, bartender, and cook could not have done better. Most perfectly poached egg! Be back soon!!

This place is over priced. I went for happy hour when the greatest deals apply. The wine is $6 a glass and the food is $6 as well but the sandwiches they serve are for half of a sandwich! What a rip off. Change the name!

Having originally thought they the new breed of trendy wine bars merely offered small snacks with their comprehensive wine lists, I didn't quite know what I was getting myself into when I ate here. After having a meal that I would describe as "unique and amazing," I left Max's Wine Dive really appreciating this establishment for the lively, eccentric place... More

My wife and I stopped in for brunch on Saturday morning, January 31st. Promptly seated and Brenna took our drink order. Grapefruit mimosa's are amazing! Coffee was delicious as well. We both ordered the Jake Cakes and wings. This is an amazing dish of 3 fried, huge chicken wings and variation of griddle cakes. My wife order the red velvet... More

Real good service. While I am not crazy about fusion, the chicken and Pulled Pork Stadium Nachos were real good. It is a great casual atmosphere.

Waiter's t-shirt said Chicken & Champagne, Why Not? Why not indeed! The friend I was dining with said they were famous for their chicken so that is what we ordered. Chicken and champagne. Food, service and atmosphere were fantastic. It is a small place so do make reservations or visit during a non-peek time. Will definitely go back to try... More
