MAX's Wine Dive Dallas - McKinney Ave. Ratings and Reviews
Your fried chicken and fixings are alway ...
Your fried chicken and fixings are always good. But I fell in love with your bloody mary. I had it the first day you offered it for brunch and it was the best I ever had. It kept living up to this everytime I came in, even when you put the salt on the side of the glass(who does that?). But last time I came in it tasted like V8 juice and this time it wasn't a whole lot better even after I let the waitress know I wasn't happy with it last time. Come on Max you can do better than this!!

I ordered the chicken sliders and mac and cheese - both were delicious! I tried my friends mashed potatoes and greens and they were both good as well. I had the white peach sangria that was really good and strong.

Great Birthday Dinner!
My family recently celebrated my wife's birthday with movie night and dinner afterwards. Within a block from the Magnolia Theater in Uptown Dallas, we found this gem. On my OpenTable reservation, I told the restaurant that we were celebrating my wife's birthday. So, upon arrival, my wife was treated to a complimentary glass of champagne. Nice touch! The wine here is priced extremely reasonably - I treated myself to a flight of three premium reds for a mere $25 - a nice Caymus cab was the star of the flight. Our waiter was very helpful with the wine selection, and even brought free tasters to help us choose. I would characterize the food as "upscale comfort food," and refined takes on the classics is what Max's does best. For dinner, we shared a homey, gooey, delicious bowl of Mac and Cheese (I literally licked the bowl, but blamed it on the wine), an order of Rice Krispy covered fried shrimp (as good as it sounds), and chicken sliders slathered with honey. For starters, we split a summer-fresh watermelon salad. We were too full for dessert, but the waiter still brought my wife a birthday ice cream sundae. This was our second time dining here, but won't be the last!

The brunch menu was ok, but the Champagne selection was extremely poor. They were showing 2 reasonable priced bottles of champagne and with our party of 8, we ordered 2 bottles. They ended up with only one of our selection, and when we tried to go to the next level, they didn't have that either. So the option was Wycliff for $28. Which is some cheap champagne. Otherwise the next level was $50. Which to me if you have printed menus and are showing a selection of champagne, you should have it in stock.

One of the best experiences I've had at Max's! The food was hot, fast and fresh. Delicious of course. Our waitress was welcoming and made sure that we were taken care of and comfortable at all times. Just a great dining experience!

The main disappointment of the night was they were out of oysters so I was unable to order the Nacho Mama's Oysters which are usually an extremely tasty appetizer. Aside from that I had a great experience although the fact that they do not serve hard alcohol is a very unfortunate. For the first time we ordered the 1lb ribeye and asked for it to be cooked medium rare. This is a $40 steak so I'm standards were very high and I was expecting perfection and what we got was indeed a perfectly cooked steak with some pretty tasty mashed potatoes. This is the 2nd best steak I've ever had in a restaurant and the #1 steak on my list was $70 at Nick & Sam's Steakhouse. I will be thinking about that wonderful steak for weeks. lol
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.
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!
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!

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.
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.
