Now that the menu is totally focused on bar food, I will not return for a meal. Stopping by for a glass of wine is the only reason to go.
no one approached us after we were shown to a table. I had to get up and go find someone. everything took forever, ordering, food to come out. it was miserable. they did comp our mimosas. we got there at 12:30 didn't leave until 2. they weren't crowded either
The staff meeting called in the dining room while our dinners sat on the stove should have been a clue. "Big changes" are coming we heard and were told. In the meantime, we were served tough overcooked chicken. Forget all the great reviews, the head chef has moved on and it shows. Stay away until they get their new act together!
Kim our waitress was great! She offered great suggestions since it was out first time visiting Max's Wine Dive. Plan to visit again to try other items on the menu.
Provides validation and/or free parking in the adjoining parking deck- very helpful in crowded Midtown area. Very generous portions. The fried Egg sandwich is HUGE!!!
The fried egg sandwich was delicious. The service was slower than I would have liked but I would return.
Southern fried chicken is outstanding, as is the pulled pork stuffed peppers.
Partner had a hamburger and thought that it was great.
Relaxed, fun place with excellent, friendly service.
I had been wanting to try Max's Wine Dive ever since I heard about it. I finally went this past weekend for brunch and was satisfied with my experience. I had the Fried Chicken plate. The chicken was to die for, but the potatoes and collard greens were average. I tried my boyfriend's French Toast, and it was outstanding. I would definitely order his dish again. I heard the Chicken & Waffles were delicious, as were the Crab Cakes Benedict. The restaurant was quite loud, too loud, even at 1:00 P.M. on a Sunday afternoon. I asked the waitress to turn down the volume, but I don't think it made much of a difference. I only recommend this restaurant for smaller groups, less than 6 people. Otherwise, you won't be able to hear each other. I'll definitely be coming back to try dinner.
My friend first brought me to this restaurant for lunch and I loved it so much that I brought my other friend for dinner. This restaurant is known for their amazing chicken and they are not lying. It's really yummy! My favorite to order on the menu is their chicken and champagne salad! My second favorite is to order their friend chicken. My friend ordered the fried egg sandwich and he loved his as well. This will now be my go to place. The only bad thing about this place is the parking but thank goodness they validate! If you decide to go please be sure to ask for Kendall as your waiter!
This one is definitely a must visit. The food was great! Fried chicken wings had the best crust and the crab cakes were excellent!!!!
My friends and I frequent Max's, even when the lobster is out of season. This was our first time for brunch and it was just as fabulous!
We came here at the beginning to my bachelorette party the other day. I wish I would have read that they only do brunch during the time we went though. Food options are a bit limited if you don't eat eggs or bread during this time. However, I got the gluten free fried chicken and it tasted just like "normal" fried chicken! Would definitely come back...just not during brunch hours!
Had a coupon for lunch. However, the few people that were in there along with us may have experienced the long wait for getting waited on, the delivery of the food and the check. There was one wait staff so I don't recommend this place for lunch if you have an hour. It took us 1.5 hours and we went up and retrieved our bill and paid it while she was standing at the register.
The place is new, the food was good. They need to work out the kinks if they want to serve a lunch crowd. Once they do that, I would recommend dining there for lunch. Wine for dinner.
The fried chicken was the BEST I've had being in Atlanta for 15 years. I am thrilled to have found this place through Scoutmob. Spreading the word on this awesome new place through FB and Twitter!
Food was awesome! I along with friends really enjoyed the service and the delicious food.
If you LOVE succulent fried chicken paired with a few glasses of wine, look no further! This place is absolutely one of my favorites (after only 1 visit). The food was amazing, the service was top notch, and the grapefruit mimosas I had were affordable! I highly recommend the fried chicken (obviously) but I'm certain almost anything they prepare will be well worth it! Parking was also validated for 2 hours (which is a plus in Midtown).
Had a great Sunday brunch with fine food, wine and we were able to bring our lap dog to sit in the outside area.
Their fried chicken, fish and chips, brussel sprouts, and drunken bread are all excellent.
The waiter was very attentive professional and knew the menu well including wines. The chef visited our table also and was very personable and knowledgeable. We have been there several times always very consistent food quality and service. Me chael and Patric are great.
What is their identity? It's not a dive and it's not a wine bar. The decor, atmosphere and food concept is a complete jumbled mess of different styles/themes. And the service was terrible and the food was slow. And their lunch rush was just a few tables.
I will say that the fried chicken was stellar. But my whole table was so overwhelmed with confusion that it turned us off from the restaurant.
My recommendation, start over. Build a menu and theme around the fried chicken.
Mac-n-Cheese and Fried Chicken were among the very best I've ever had. Neither my wife nor I were impressed with the gator dogs.
Portion sizes were big. You'll need a box.
Outdoor seating is fantastic early evening as it is completely shaded by the building. This makes outdoor dining pleasant even on a warm Atlanta evening.
