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

We went for brunch. It was mobbed, but we had reservations (a must). Since there were so many yummy things on the menu, three of us decided to split three choices. Every dish was wonderful! Too may good tales to tell - but be sure to try at least one dish with collard greens! (Not to mention the fries, the... More

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
