I had mixed feelings! The food and wine was fantastic! The service wasn't bad. In fact, if we had money to burn, it would have been a much more enjoyable experience. The waiter was pretty pushy and maybe more involved and personal than we would have liked. I know he was just doing his job and he was very charming and smooth, but we felt pushed to each have a glass of wine, which I know wasn't really what my boyfriend had originally had in mind. We're not "always drink with every meal" kind of people, but my boyfriend wanted me to be happy since we were there celebrating a milestone. The waiter hoped that we would purchase a bottle, but I thought $50 was a little steep for something we could most likely pop over to a liquor store and get for $20-$30, not to mention the fact that we were already purchasing a glass we would not otherwise have gotten. We were "upsold" several items that we regretted when we got the paycheck. Who knew that it cost $3-$4 to switch out sides? That's kind of absurd if you ask me. I wish that had been explained to us, or at the very least, I wish we had thought to ask. We're just a couple of young professionals hoping to purchase a home in this incredibly expensive real estate market. Spending $100+ on dinner is not something we're in a position to do. Wish we could return, but this place was a little too pricey for us, unfortunately...

I absolutely love Max's...I've never had an issue until last night. We had made reservations for the three course dinner with wine parings on New Year's Eve. It was also my friends birthday so we decided this would be something fun to do...we were there three hours and half of the time the manager had to bring our food because the waiter was no where to be found. We hardly had the wine with the actual course bc by the time it came, we had already eaten the food it was supposed to go with. This was $75 a person..I get that it was busy but honestly..we could have ordered off of the regular menu. We had to ask for our food and wine every single time because it took an hour per course. They also sent out the wrong desert to both of us. At the end I was shocked they didn't even offer to change the we paid the $75 a person and left. Ill be back because I do love this place but I was shocked at the service..even the tables next to us were saying how horrible their experience was as well.

They have a friendly staff, excellent comfort food and an excellent selection of wines by the glass. If you want two or more glasses of a wine, you can order off the bottle menu. They also have a great brunch. On nights and weekend there is valet parking. Come hungry and try their fried chicken. The grilled cheese is another great choice.

Awesome food and awesome service. That being said their event planning department was the worst. Had three different event planners over the time we were planning for our event and each one said something different and tried to charge us differently. All said and done everything was done correctly and we were happy with how our event turned out and the price for it.

We visited on a Sunday night around 6:00 and the place was completely dead. No problem with that though as we got plenty of attention. Food came out quickly and the wine selection was superb. Just a note, this location does not allow purchases of bottles to take home since they are a full bar and that is against TABC regulations. Other Max's locations without a full bar should still allow this though.

If you're a fan of chicken and waffles, look no further! Possibly the best I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying, the chicken is well flavored and the perfect degree of moist. The waffles are exemplary, quintessentially fluffy and crisp. Possibly the best food pairing I have ever experienced. MAX's offers many other delicious dishes, and while they are also good in their own ways, it is difficult to beat the chicken and waffles. Seriously, they are that good- this is the place you always hear about but never believe the hype until you experience it yourself.... And then it blows your mind.

Decent beer and a good wine selection. Just stopped for a drink late in the evening. Service was great and it was a nice quiet place to have a drink away from 6th.

Great brunch! Not too busy, but delicious food. Loved the mac and cheese and the chicken and waffles.
