MAX's Wine Dive Houston - Fairview St. Ratings and Reviews

The new menu changes at Fairview (wings and donuts) doesn't make it more appealing to choose Max's. By far one of our favorites. Removing the half-wall did open it up more but you lost something also by doing that. I think each location having it's own unique menu and style was a plus.

Everything was great EXCEPT for the older gentleman with NO SHIRT allowed to eat on the patio... And with a parrot!! I do believe the no shirt situation is a health code violation! When I inquired, I was told he's a regular! He walked through the restaurant with NO SHIRT! I really don't care who he is or how often he frequents the restaurant... THIS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED!!! Oh... I had reservations for the patio but ate inside due to this 'situation'!! The food and service were both great!

Fried Chicken definitely good specially with the deal for the 10th anniversary. Special price on bubblies also helped. Server was great though the maître d was a little harried though pleasant enough. We were late for our reservation but they did accommodate us.

We had a lovely time here for our monthly happy hour although due to some 'work interference' not all of our party was able to make it but we had a great time nonetheless. We love this location and the service is outstanding!

So disappointed with our brunch outing this time. It was not very crowded on our visit. We had reservations and were seated upon entering. Our waitress was good, but not great. My order came out cold. My fault for not saying something, but I didn't want to send it back because I would end up eating alone once it came back and everyone at the table had finished. My husband's entree was lukewarm. Again, it was not crowded and we sat near the kitchen. Seemed as though they were steady working on orders, but very disappointing to have cold food. We have dined here before and it was very good.

Our waitress was very helpful and super friendly. This was the first Sunday in a long time the restaurant wasn't too crowded. The food (especially their famous grits) was delicious. We will definitely be coming back for brunch again!

My husband and I have gone here a couple times for brunch. It's a great atmosphere with good food. Crowded but not in an annoying way. We make a reservation about a half hour before so we know we will get a table instead of bar seating.
I ordered the fried egg sandwich and it was HUGE. It is definitely large enough to split or share, it is also very tasty!

Lousy. This place is not about meals or gatherings but instead the focus is clearly on peddling as much alcohol as possible on a Sunday morning. The dining area is a generic open space with some high-tops and a wall of booths behind dark, sticky tables punctuated by fluorescent glimmers from two big-screen TVs.
We were so put off by the rude and dismissive host and inept service that we left after wasting 20 minutes there. This review is not about the food because we had the good sense to escape before making the mistake of ordering.
We had reservations at 10 AM, when the "restaurant" opened. Upon arriving on time, the host saw that we were two adults with a child (who was well-behaved with book in hand) and decided to seat us at a two-seater (with an extra chair), and the table was pushed against a wall about two feet from the host station. When we requested a booth instead (more than half were open) as we did not want one of us to be sitting in a path where people would walk and we did not want to be so cozy with the backsides of the three employees who huddled around the host station, the host acted like he could not be bothered with us (it was not busy) and someone else showed us to a booth. Ten minutes later, a server came and asked, with no hello or introduction, if she could get us mimosas. We ordered coffee. No one came to take our meal order. Other tables seated after us had their alcohol orders taken and served. Ten minutes later, before the coffee ever made it to us, we left.
We went to Urban Eats and had a lovely meal.

Wonderful experience, great wine, fantastic value for happy hour. Great service. There is a bit of construction around the location and parking is valet and tight.... that would be the only downside. Hopefully to get better once construction is complete.

Food was great! Server was distracted. We were first table seated for the day, then 10 minutes later the next table was seated. They were served, they ate and they paid their bill before we received our food. We only received coffee/drink refills from the neighboring table server and when we received our food.

This is my second time in a row to go to this Max's and be horribly disappointed by the service. I love the food and wanted to give it a second shot. It took at least 5-10 minutes for our waitress to come see us, and over 20 for us to get our water (and our waitress didn't even come around in that period of time to ask her about it, we had to grab a wandering busboy) when we finally got our food, I didn't have a spoon on my plate, and literally nobody came by to ask us about our food. The waitress came by towards the end of the meal and I was finally able to get a spoon. Mind you during this time period I watched our absent waitress talking for long periods of time at other tables, notice when wine glasses were full and refill them, and generally pay attention to those people without even sparing a passing glance towards my table.
It would be one thing if this wasn't the second time in a row. The first gone my order was lost and I didn't even get my food until everybody else was finished eating.
I'm not returning to this location.

My first time at this location. Food very good. Service was slow. Be very careful eating on the patio in rainy weather. The groups outside got soaking wet with the down pours. The patio is not equipped to keep you dry or your food from getting ruined.
Overall, the chicken was just as great as the other locations.

First off go there and they tell me the kitchen is closed
The waitress never came to check on us refill drinks or even pack up my food that I didn't eat
They weren't busy nobody including management checked on anyone they just talked among themselves
The food wasn't good the collard greens were bitter even I know to add sugar to them duh
I will never ever support this restaurant or any of their rest. Hope they get closed down soon

Max's is one of my husbands favorite restaurants. We usually go to the Washington location, but that location had no available reservations at the time we wanted. Booked the fairview location. Arrived and were immediately seated. Took a little while to order drinks, but it was busy, so it was not a big deal. The guests we brought orders salads and my husband and I both ordered the sliders. I got a side of max and cheese and my husband got fries. About 20 minutes later the sliders came out. With no sides. We were told the salads would be right out. Five minutes later we asked where the sides we ordered were and where the rest of the food was. We were told it would be about another 5 minutes. So by the time the rest of the food got to the table, the sliders were cold. Not to mention the Mac and cheese had separated so it was very greasy. We will definitely think twice about eating there again.
