Very busy place that can be hard to get into. The food is fantastic and there is a good selection of wine. The fried chicken is the bomb!

We went to Max's for Sunday brunch - my wife loves the gluten free fired chicken! My daughter and I shared a huge egg sandwich, which was just great. Funky, fun atmosphere, and a great selection of wines. It was great to have a glass of wine with brunch at 10 AM!

This place came well recommended and it was deserved. We were here on a Saturday mid morning and it was full of locals. Had nice wine list for a place of this size-we had fried chicken, chicken fried steak, and a eye dish and all were fantastic. Great place for brunch. Would have returned on Sunday but the place was... More

Fun place to eat, delicious place to eat, excellent place to drink! We started our meal with pulled pork stuffed peppers and nacho Mama's Oysters, enjoyed the watermelon and arugla salad, fried chicken and strawberry lemonade pie-toni. This was paired with an excellent wine. Max's is all about comfort food and good wine.

All 3 of us selected the four course pre fix menu for $35 each. The watermelon salad was very refreshing. Their Mac n Cheese is delicious comfort food. The seafood trio was done to perfection, fried chicken was some of the best fried chicken my husband has ever had - very moist & filled with flavor. He also had green... More

My colleagues and I wanted to go to a restaurant for Houston Restaurant Weeks and we chose Max's. It did not disappoint. Crab Mac n cheese and the fried chicken were awesome. My co workers got the chicken and jack cakes and they said it was amazing. Definitely coming back!

Invited another couple to meet and enjoy fellowship, wine, and a fun meal together yesterday. Just as I experienced about a year when I was the invitee: we had a fine time! Max's (on Washington Ave just west of downtown) has excellent wines by the glass, great atmosphere, and a fun and attentive staff - right from when I called... More

We went to Max's during restaurant week. We had a great time. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and of course the wine. We dined on the grilled pork chops and the famous fried chicken. Definitely a most do if you're in the area.
