We decided last minute to try to get a reservation for Valentine's day and was surprised that they had an open spot. Warmly greeted at the door. Waitress was great, friendly and helpful.
Good wine list. The food was great. Had the bone marrow which was the best I've ever had and bison sliders for starters. and I had the pot roast and my wife the special shrimp fra diavolo for dinner. Both were excellent.
The only word of caution is if you sit towards the back, there is a large speaker that blasts 60's music. We asked our waitress to turn it down and they accommodated and then another couple who were seated after us also asked it to be turned down again So it was pretty loud. they need to address that situation. With today's technology, they should be able to disperse the sound without making their patrons have to shout to converse.
Other than that it was a perfect dinner and will definitely go back to try other items on the menu.

Valentines Day evening. Were out of some of the food items on the menu, early evening. And part of kitchen needs to be closed up. Not very eye appealing. What we did eat was very good, but over priced for what it was. Wine selection was great. And waiter was very nice.

Valet only parking in the crowded 7th Street district, a store front dive hopping with cool young professionals and trust fund college types. Rock music and streaming sports on tv behind the bar. Great wine list and good food with cute waiters and a hip atmosphere. Pricey.

From the Pink Floyd playing on the juke to the Willie Nelson painting hanging on the wall, I just love the ambiance of this place. The Max n cheese was amazing, and the Fried chicken is worth its weight in gold. Will definitely be be returning.

We arrived on time for our 8p reservation. We were seated at the bar, even though there was an open table behind us. After 15-20 minutes, we were moved to the open table. Kinda strange. Our order was entered incorrectly by the waiter, but they made it correct. Overall, the food was outstanding....just a little tough on the front in.

This marks our 4th visit to Max's. The house red was very good. The stuffed peppers were Fair. The cheese board was very good and interesting as usual. My cracklin' chicken over risotto and collard greens were to die for. As was my friends egg sandwich. I've had it before. I think these may be the best items on the menu. Another friend had the fish and chips and was completely underwhelmed. My husband got the pork chop. The chop was extremely salty, to the point of ruining the dish for him. The mashed potatoes were bland. He added the Mac & Cheese but it too was bland and was a waste of money. I encouraged him to say something but he doesn't roll that way. We've had the fried chicken before, and the chicken champagne salad. Both very very good. So I guess you just have to know what to get and what to steer away from. Max's isn't an inexpensive place to dine, so greater consistency is expected and would be appreciated. But man, those collards. Dang, they're amazing! Valet service is great too.

Our group of 4 has had better fried chicken and wine list elsewhere. Our fried chicken was more batter than chicken. Started with the lobster risotto- horrible. Tiny piece of lobster on top of a fried ball with risotto inside. Completely Flavorless! Also ordered the mac and cheese shareable- it was the driest pasta we've ever had. Wine list is very short compared to many other places in FTW. They cramped too many tables into the small space. We won't be returning with too many other great places serving much better food.

I like to consider Max's wine dive one of my all time favorite restaurants, which is why I was so utterly disappointed by my last visit. We decided to do my Birthday this year at Max's and do brunch instead of dinner. The thing about this visit that so glaringly stood out was the bad service. I always brag on Max's to my friends and family but I might have to hold back the applause now. First, it took along time to get a server at our table. Once we had one, our drink orders were taken and we looked over the menu and ordered. I will admit that I ordered my meal with ad ons but they came out incorrectly, missing the added on item. The wait staff seemed to insist that the extra was there but I insisted back that it was not. They did bring it out to me though. I'd say we finished our first round of drinks around when our food hit the table. We were not once asked during the rest of the meal if we would like another round. We had planned on having a few each as we were celebrating. At one point, neither of us even had any water and I had to wait quite awhile until I tracked down our waitress to even refill those. At this point we were already both annoyed and disappointed and had given up on our waitress. The food however, was excellent as always. Amen for that because it was the only saving grace. Once we got our ticket, it was wrong. On my first mimosa, she had told me you were out cold bottles of the regular champagne, but she upgraded for me with no charge. Good thing I looked over the ticket because I was charged for the upgrade. I brought it to her attention and she was like, "Oh yeah, it happens all the time because the buttons are next to each other." in a very matter of fact way. It seemed shady because if it's 'happening all the time' I bet a lot of customers are being overcharged and not catching it was is NOT okay. We payed and quickly left happy to be gone at that point. We instead went elsewhere for birthday drinks and treats.

On my first trip to Max's for Sunday Brunch at 11:00am, there was still parking in the lot, but they also had valet service. I haven't been over to that side of fort worth for awhile, and didn't know how cool that area had become, people walking dogs, Trinity park trail, people with kids, brunchers, a very nice mish-mash of ages..
The tables at Max's are nestled against each other, cozy and lively. You can hear conversations on both sides of you and people didn't mind talking to the people at the next table. I met some 50-60 year old visitors from Minnesota, and some funny 20-somethings at the table on my left. We all enjoyed mimosas and i got to see what everyone was eating before my brunch-partner arrived. Despite the busyness, the waitstaff never hurried me. I sipped my mimosa and people-watched.
I ended up with the honey-butter-chicken benedict, which was creative and very tasty. It was made with homemade biscuits and fried chicken breast and homemade gravy. My bud had the Green eggs and ham, which he found good but unremarkable. Despite the fact that almost everything on the menu had jalapeño in it, the benedict's jalapeño gravy was not spicy. (I am a tastebud wimp). I got fruit instead of potatoes and it was exactly the right amount of food.
One of the twenty-somethings next to me got an omelet the she thought was undercooked. The cook, waiter and manager fell over themselves to fix it immediately and brought her out an entirely new plate of food. By noon, that place was maxed out (if you pardon the pun) and the kitchen was really busy. So maybe that was the problem.
Only two things would have made our brunch better: flavored hot tea (they gave me hot water, and i supplied my own tea leaves), and/or a nice hot latte (they only had regular coffee...which was actually not hot at first for some reason. The refill was hot, though.)
Overall, i enjoyed it immensely and would like to return for lunch sometime.

Max's had a new chef since we had dined there before. My husband loved the pot roast and saw several options he would like to try. As a vegetarian, I was disappointed to learn there are very few options. Mostly just salad available. I look forward to going for brunch soon to see if Max's remains on our "treat" list for going into Ft. Worth.

The service was good. This is the first new years eve I have spent here when there was no chef special for the holiday. And it seems like the menu selection has become much less impressive as it used to be. Plus, to be a wine bar Max's wine list was kind of short on the number of selections offered.

Food was extremely salty, I mean everything was so salty (mashed potatoes, aoili, chicken, mac n cheese, fries, etc.). Service was friendly, but very slow. Music was extremely loud and head banger annoying.

Always a great evening. The food has never disappointed. Fantastic wine menu. Not sure what you are in the mood for? Let them help you with a selection. Alot of the time, we just have them surprise us. Never a disappointment.

We had a great time! Needed a fun place for brunch with the family before taking in a show at Casa Manana. The décor is fun, the food was very good, and the staff was very friendly!! I look forward to visiting again many times!
