By far the best fried chicken I've ever had and the collard greens divine . The service was right on . Great wine . Small and cozy place . I plan to go back very soon .

usually I wouldn't go for a cabbage wrapped meatloaf over mashed potatoes, but this was worth the calories, no question. Very moist, great savory flavor and a thick sauce spooned over that created a great melding of flavors! This plate was after yummy fried oysters that disappeared pretty quick and the lamb meatballs. So, yeah, we didn't go vegetarian tonight.... More

Having Celiac's is difficult. MWD seems to think its hilarious. I have visited 4 times in the last 8 months and ordered there GF fried chicken. 3 of the 4 trips it turned out to not be GF. Not a problem if you enjoy, best case scenario, bouts of nausea and vomiting in the middle of the night. Getting an... More

The food was great, the wine was great. The staff was also very nice. The only thing I would say is that the prices were high. We went for Happy Hour,$10 for a glass of wine...for Happy Hour. It's something to keep in mind, but I would go back there.

Leave your calorie counter at home, and wear your expandable pants as Max's unique southern comfort menu choices are so awesome, you're going to eat every delicious bite! We decided on the Max-n-cheese and the Famous Southern Fried Chicken w/mashed potatoes, Texas toast, etc. Sounds simple enough, but the taste is SOOO much more than what Kraft or KFC can... More

This place has been here for a while and has a reputation for its attitude and out there menu. Anywhere with fried chicken and champagne paired together gets my vote for a different experience. The wines are excellent too, not your typical supermarket bottles marked up 200%. The sliders are excellent!

We've visited Max's Wine Dive several times and each time the food is delicious. I like how they only offer wine and no sodas. If you want a coke, well, you are out of luck here at Max's. Personally, I think that is a good idea. The negatives... it is a bit noisy at times. I found myself having to... More

This place is absolutely awesome. It's hard to find a restaurant that does brunch on the weekday, but fortunately they have brunch on Fridays!! The food is amazing! My friend had the French Toast (which is seriously the best) and I had the typical egg, bacon, home fries and bread. Everything about the food was fabulous. Mimosas were the icing... More

The restaurant is a good brunch spot. It had a moderate selection of foods with I think the specialty were the red velvet pancakes. Which I ordered but wasn't too pleased with the consistency of the pancake it was pretty dense. The atmosphere, mimosas - orange or grapefruit- and chicken and waffles are worth giving this place a try. I... More

The fried chicken is delicious! Otherwise the menu is a bit odd for my taste. I had seen pics of french toast from there that looked great but apparently is only available at brunch because they've never had it on the menu when I was there. It's more of a bar really than a restaurant and I don't drink, so... More
