MAX's Wine Dive Dallas - McKinney Ave. Ratings and Reviews
It was a bust from the moment we walked up. Not busy, when everything nearby is.
They showed us to the dining room and wanted to put us at a high top table. We asked to be seated at a regular table (more comfortable chairs) but were told that they had too many reservations. We decided to go ahead and be seated.
It was more than ten minutes before we were greeted - enough time for me to make a run to the ladies room and return to the table with sticky feet from dirty floors in the restroom.
My husband ordered a cocktail. I ordered a Shiner - one of their draft options. Several minutes later our server returned to tell us that they had just run out of Shiner.
At that point, we decided to cut our losses. Date nights are too few when you have three kids and busy lives.
We went down the street to Del Frisco's Grill and had a much better experience.
The manager did address us on our way out - apologizing that they were out of Shiner. If that was the only thing that had made a negative impression, it wouldn't have driven us out the door.
We ate at Max Wine Dive for my husbands birthday and we had a wonderful experience. Our waitress was amazing. I hate I can not remember her name. She was very attentive and she had knowledge of the menu and which entrees to recommend. We will definitely return and bring friends and family with us. My husband had a great birthday.
I tried the chicken & egg biscuit with jalapeñoe gravy, I added jalapeño grits which were not creamy & they were room temperature the entire meal was just ok. My friend had Bq chicken ,collard greens & potatoes with some kind of sauce & it was delicious! The Pomegranate Champagne was great! The music was great, old school R&B!
I completed a survey for them and won a gift card. Since it was my Anniversary, I figured I would take my husband there; he has never been. Well the waitress was awesome, but the food sucked! My greens were horrible, tasted like they were old and my thighs were not fully cooked. Because I had already complained about my mash potatoes, I didn't want to keep complaining. My husband enjoyed the atmosphere and said he wanted to return for the brunch. Maybe we'll place you on the potential restaurant return list.
We went there on mother's day for brunch and we loved it. We of course made reservations because this place gets packed on the weekend. Our server was Tory and she was great, the manager makes sure to come around to make sure that everything is going fine which I loved. There is nothing bad I can say about this place, from the service to the food, everything is great.
We made reservation and were sat and waited for over 20 minutes, then we had to point out that no one has helped us yet, then a bar tender came out and took our orders and then waited 30 min still no food after about an hour of sitting there we decided to leave. The staff was very poor service,
The service was off and the waitress wasn't attentive. The food was cold when we received it and my friend order was wrong. I was able to talk with the manager and he tried to make it right but I still wasn't impressed with the food or with what I ordered. I have been here before and the food and service was good so I'm thinking it was just an off day. Not really sure if I will go back or not.
Absolutely HORRIBLE, ORDERED FRIED LOBSTER as appetizer came out 15 min after my meal which was cold... the manager came and took it back after 10 min they brought us new cold food... the manager never came back waiter said new chef... DON'T waste your time or money my chicken was burnt HORRIBLE.. ended up going to register to say we are leaving, manager looked up said okay you dont have a bill... HORRIBLE service
Although we had reservations, we arrived too close to closing and the experience was not good. It took an hour for our food to arrive. The waitress explained that it had to be recooked because it was not cooked properly the first time. The food was not the quality we had been used to eating in our previous visits to the restaurant.
I took my kids for brunch. Cool experience. Food was really good and pretty fast. Kiesha was an excellent waitress. The hostess however, was snide and lame. Overall, you can't go wrong with anything from here. At busy times it is a little loud. The patio is really great.
I bought a groupon for brunch and visited on a Saturday morning. We were quickly seated however the tables are way too close to privately converse . The mimosa was great and I ordered the chicken and wings. My waffle was bland and chicken was very dark almost burnt as if they hadn't changed the grease. the home fries were delicious besides the fact the little burnt pieces. If I choose to go back it will be for drinks or happy hour.
This place seems to have an identity crisis. Loud club music, a dive bar feel, wine paired with fried chicken.... I love all of these things but the way they were combined was off putting. The concept could be done much better. The chicken was subpar for what they made it out to be and the service wasn't that great either. Seems like a lot of disparate pieces slammed together to form whatever it was that I just experienced.
Went for Easter brunch, turned out to be buffet! $30 for a wide selection, shrimps were good size for shrimp and grits plus grits were spicy! Fried chicken was delicious as usual, their staple, good eggs to order station, and assortment of FRESH pastries and fruits. The only downside was they offered both plain buttermilk biscuits and black pepper biscuits served with gravy however they were served cold, unappealing. $3.75 mimosa was good as well. It was a valiant effort but I think the regular brunch menu would have been better. Music was great until someone unplugged the output then blasted the volume to club level.
Despite the well-prepared food, the collard greens and mashed potatoes with the fried chicken (which was excellent) was a disappointing experience, especially after being disregarded upon sharing this with one of two servers. The service was neither attentive nor well-trained; but, they were polite. It seemed chaotic though there were only about six full tables.
Max really needs to "Up his Game!" While we truly enjoyed our food, the service was a bit slow. We noticed how stark the patio is and it's so close to Lemmon Ave., it's like another "Lane." So, Max ... what about some plants or other things to make that patio more inviting? Despite the weather being lovely, we ate inside because the patio looks like anyone's back yard before they've had a chance to spruce it up. Great food ... Patio renovations beginning soon!
Food was just okay. I ordered the chicken and waffles ..my chicken came out burnt. Had to send it back. Waffle was cold. I noticed another patron taking her cold waffle back also. Service leaves a lot to be desired also. Waitress was not attentive at all. Kept walking by as if we were not there. I like the concept of the restaurant. This was my 2nd visit. 1st time was much better. I will go back but I am apprehensive.
