Great food, service was a little slow.

We had Sunday brunch and the place was packed! Definitely make a reservation. The food was sinfully delicious. Our waitress wasn't very good, though. I understand they were busy, but my friend was without coffee for close to 20 minutes and she was no where to be found. Also, it was freezing in... read more

Ate there a couple of times. Food is good but not much of it for the price. Also hate the idea you only have a table for so long. You can't sit and just drink with friends. Quit going.

We googled best brunches in Houston and this was one. We were not disappointed! Make reservations. It gets packed quickly. My husband asked the waitress for a recommendation and she suggested the J cakes and fried chicken wings Amazing! It's a cross between a pancake and corn bread. It was so yummy. I got the fried egg sandwich. I needed... More

This place has a great ambiance for a date or a smart casual get together. Great wine selections..but not to many options by the glass. Fried chicken and mashed potatoes was finger lickin' good. The infamous macaroni was stellar although the drunken bread wasn't all i hoped it would be...too much bread...to much cheese. The banana cheescake was interesting......banana and... More

Besides the extensive wine selection, the menu is awesome. The fried chicken and mashed potatoes was beyond delicious. Nightly wine and food specials are nice and the atmosphere very upbeat. Parking is a challenge and the place is small so be patient, it's worth the wait. Tip: sit at the bar if you like to watch food prep, it's fun... More

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... 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!!
