Making an errand around this neighborhood and decided to stop here for lunch on a weekday. Once there (parking in the back) we noticed the only menu was "Brunch". We don't usually like brunches, but because it was late, we decided to order the only thing on the menu that wasn't egg-based (besides the fried chicken) and ordered a burger... More

One of the better Burgers in Houston, A nice blend of beef in the patty, slathered in blue cheese and topped off with bacon and fresh lettuce and tomato. Split a bottle of champagne, Why the Hell Not! Great go to place near my house.

A nice little restaurant, though not a dive. Eclectic crowd and lively atmosphere. Great fried chicken. Not to breaded and juicy. Good pick.

I came because they were offering 1,000 point tables on Open Table, and I was pleased with the food quality. Also it's a great neighborhood, there are a couple of interesting knick knack stores within 1 block, see those after lunch!

Max's is a foodie place for foodies. The wine can get very pricey here but the food is outrageously good. We like to eat out and have been to some great restaurants all over the world and really enjoy eating at Maxs. Dont miss this place!

My second time at this location. Food is out of this world! Service is very nice! The atmosphere is lively...read that, LOUD! The music was so loud we could hardly talk to each other across the table, we were yelling at each other. We'll try another brunch place next time and see how it compares overall.

It was OK, but not as friendly as the Fairview location. Didn't try the food, so can't compare that to the Fairview location (that I enjoyed). Also, they told us they could not give us one of the happy hour wines because the dispensers/taps was not working. OK, well you'd think they'd offer a replacement wine. But, no.

It was ok. Kind of pricey and very nice atmosphere. But some of the waiters are rude. And also it cost $3.00 to split the check if you're not all paying together.

Came to MWD after seeing a list of the best brunches in Houston. Brunch is my fav meal of any day so I was of course game to try it. It's totally worth it. Brunch is served until 3pm on wknds so no need to rush... First, the parking is not plentiful. You can valet park of course (I never... More
