I ate Sunday brunch at Max's. There were two couples (all foodies) so we all selected something different in order to try a sample of four different entrees. We had chicken and waffles, the fried egg sandwich, French toast and fried chicken along with sparkling wine. Everything was good. I am usually not a fan of French toast, but I... More

Okay, this may not be the heart healthy place (well, red wine is good for you), but we had a great meal in a fun atmosphere this week. Max's Wine Dive is a cool concept of upscale comfort food together with good wine. We arrived around 7pm on a weeknight and while there wasn't a table available, we were able... More

Max’s is one of those unexpected surprises. The venue is not much to look at. In fact it’s no more than a strip center bar. A great venue for drinks with friends after work. They have a very good wine menu and some good beers. It’s the kind of place you just know you will have fun and relax at.... More

Max's Wine Bar is as the name suggests a bit of a dive but the food is very good and anyplace that plays David Bowie and CSN&Y music gets my vote. The wine selection is good and the food is excellent. The lobster fries (yes Lobster fries) were super and the fried Oysters as a starter were also very tasty.... More

I was very irritated because we had to wait 30 minutes for our table to be ready even though we had a reservation. That just doesn't make sense to me. I feel that the hostess/management should have made it a point to offer us any seats that opened up at the bar, especially since we were waiting so long. 2... More

We just met some of my family at Max's today (Sunday afternoon). My brother tells us to meet at Max's Wine Dive, so i think he's joking, but i look it up online before i question him: because i have taken him to some sketchy places before. I was intrigued by the concept of a dive bar serving wines and... More

Heard lots about this place, had ddiven by several million times, decided to stop in. Your choices for seating are the bar, bar height tables, or some booths along the wall. Lots of tables were reserved but no one ever showed up; disappointing because I hate sitting at those high tables. Waitstaff was very nice and fairly prompt and they... More
