We came in for our first official date night of 2022. The place was fantastic. We sat in the corner booth and got to enjoy an intimate setting. That food is to die for!! I got the chicken and waffles and I was so glad I did. It was a hint of spicy but not enough to overpower the waffle and syrup. My husband got the chicken parm and he gobbled it all up. We will return for their fried oreos!!

Everything last night was amazing. Valet wasn’t valeting but we found a spot close to the door. It was kinda dark & quiet, just like I like it. Ambiance was very nice & the place wasn’t crowded so we were seated quickly. Ordered boudain balls for an appetizer. They were kinda small for the price but tasty. We both ordered the fried chicken & it was probably the best I’ve ever had. I also had the jalapeño grits & they were bomb as well. I’ve told everybody I know to go try it & I can’t wait to get back myself!

Max's wine dive is still a solid spot for the chicken, greens, and mashed potatoes

My girlfriend and I stopped by for dinner on Christmas Eve. The server and manager went above and beyond to accommodate us and make us feel welcome. Despite some minor mistakes with the food, they went above and beyond to make things right and did so with a smile. We’ll be loyal repeat customers because of the exceptional customer service and very tasty food.

The food was great and our server, Trey, was very nice and interactive. The restaurant was pretty empty, so it was not an overwhelming noise level.

We hadn’t been to Max’s in years but we want to return very soon.

I like Max’s but am not sure what’s happening here. This is the third time in a row where there’s been a problem with our food. This time one of the three entrees had undercooked chicken - again. The remade dish was fully cooked, but no other accommodation was made until I asked for a manager to provide one….they didn’t offer to remove it, provide a complimentary dessert, send out a carrier pigeon, nothing. After I expressed concern, the cost of the undercooked entree was removed. It would be much better if they were more proactive when they mess up (which seems to be more often). Our experience was disrupted, but we made the most of it.

On the bright side Bruce was a great server….very attentive even while training others.

Appetizers and main dishes are good and huge. Blacken salmon was cooked to perfection: crunchy outside and tender not overcooked inside. The sauce was too salty for me but right amount of spicy hot. The lobster meat was firm and the coating was light and well seasoned.

Drink prices were decent . Will come back for happy hour bar bites

No special treatment even when we told them we were celebrating 2 birthdays and spent $240 +
