What often happens in my travel life is that I have fast turn around trips and recently I found myself in Houston for a short time-- 24 hours total. I knew I could get to two of my Houston bookmarks and I decided that Max's should be one of them. The two reasons for this were: the Famous Fried Egg... More

I have visited this place twice; once on a Friday and it was not so crowded so the waitstaff was very attentive and the food was so good! I went again on a Sunday right when it opened and it was so packed in there we sat at the bar. The waitstaff during this visit was not so attentive and... More

Some friends from Houston, brought me here for brunch, I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak with scrambled eggs and cheese grits. The place was very crowded and there is usually a wait if you do not have a reservation. Once seated the waiter was prompt getting drink and food orders. Food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious, the... More

If you're looking for some tasty, high-quality comfort food with a bit of a gourmet twist, Max's Wine Dive is a great place to visit. We've been there a few times and you know what you're getting: consistency and quality. Went there last night to try its "Houston Food Bank" menu. Super deal included four courses for $35! In terms... More

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
