Not On Austin's Level
I love Max's Wine Dive. I have eaten at the Austin, San Antonio and Dallas locations numerous times. The food is super delicious and they have a great wine list. My one complaint is the service/ambiance at the Dallas restaurant. Both ATX and SA have a very classy vibe and the service is always amazing. However, Dallas is not as upscale and some of the servers seem not as professional. It doesn't help that our party witnessed a verbal altercation between to servers at the bar last Sunday. Super awkward.

The food was excellent, but our waiter was horrible. He forgot to bring out one of the items we ordered. He also forgot to bring a glass of wine we ordered. Anything extra we asked for like salt & pepper took forever to get. This was our first bad experience at this location.

A wonderful selection of wine, service and the atmosphere is great! The food is delicious too!
Happy Mother's Day
This was our first time eating at Max's Wine Dive Dallas. We went out for a Mother's Day brunch and it was great! We had reservations and got seated right away. Our server was great and so was the food! I already asked my husband when can we come back for dinner so I can experience their full menu. It is now one of my new favorite spots!
Went to Max's while they had a set brunch buffet and it was very good! We got there right at 10 so it had not been sitting out too long and of course included their famous chicken! Great price and great food! Would recommend.
I Just love MAX wine dive. VERY good food!!!
I LOVE MAX wine dive. VERY GOOD and pleasant environment. I love chef Patricks GREENS..
We've been before so we what expect however I called because I needed earlier reservation time and told there wasn't any open, but went to modify my reservation and changed to time I had just asked about. Then got there and there several opened seats which disappointed me. Made feel like guy that answered phone really didn't check.
Don't pass this up!
Max's Wine Dive has creative urban dishes that throwback to southern comfort classics. The wait staff is super fun and functional. They are known for wine, champagne, and fried chicken, but here are plenty of food & drink options to please every person in a large party, even my vegetarian wife! Great location and menu!!

My wife's chicken salad, and my shrimp and grits were great. I had to try their signature fried chicken, asked our waiter if they could prepare one breast to try. They did it, and comped it, which I didn't expect, but appreciated ver much!

The servers were very nice but slow. The wine is overpriced with a small pour. The food was good, but not fantastic. It wasn't a bad experience, but not memorable either.

I am not sure what changed about this place besides the brunch menu, but there has definitely been a change here. The servers no longer seem happy and the food was miserable. Hope they can get this corrected because the competition is stiff in Dallas!

Not what I expected - I expected more of an elegance. Yes they have a variety of wines to choose from but it is more of a Fried Chicken Dive than a wine dive. I had their Famous Southern Fried Chicken - this was a mediocre meal. Mashed potatoes were bland, they drowned the greens in vinegar & placed them on topped of the mashed potatoes and nicely placed 3 different cuts of chicken (1 leg, 1 thigh and 1 breast). Now the chicken wasn't bad but it wasn't a true home southern taste. Don't have high expectations on the look of the place or food, it is a bar with above average bar food that specializes in frying chicken.
I suggested the restaurant to a couple of friends. The comfort food is just that for me. Therefore I suggested the experience to my friends every chance I get.
Fried chicken and champagne
Fried chicken, greens, and champagne were delicious. The macaroni and cheese gets a special mention as well. We enjoyed our meals and will definitely be back.
Really not what I would consider a "dive." It was very cute, inviting, wish we had been there for happy hour to get different choices on the menu. They are on the chalk board above the bar. That being said we enjoyed what we ordered and will go back again next chance we get.

I have gone to many Max's and this one had the poorest of service. We waited 25 minutes before telling the hostess we had not met our waiter yet. The hostess then went to find our waiter with no luck so she stepped up to take our menu. After our food was ordered the waiter finally came to see if we needed anything.
As always - Max's had kind servers who brought excellent food - and the drinks are always on point. It is a personal go-to place for me, probably always will be

We were a little apprehensive at first but first great hospitality then " not your mamma's oysters " reeled us in for an amusing evening.
Great spot for bruch!
The crem brule' french toast was awesome! However, i love it with strawberries. When they run out of strawberries, they replace them with blue berries, and they don't tell you. I'm not a fan of blueberries and I didn't care for that. Other than that, it was a pleasant experience.

The chicken with mushroom risotto was fantastic and the wine flights were very reasonable.
Very disappointed with the service and the food. Not enough wait staff and drinks on cocktail menu were not that good, and beer choices were not any better. I'm not into all the IPA stuff..... Food was just ok. Probably won't be back. Thanks
Our waiter Tierra, was good but busy. She seemed to have taken on the task of waiting on every party in the building. I was not greeted upon entry to the restaurant, and the rest of the staff was sub par. The food was good, but extremely overpriced. No more Max's for me.
Second Times a Charm!!
Had to come back withthin a weeks time to get the Southern Chicken Bendict yet again!! Loved it!! This time around I brought company and they enjoyed it as well!!
