MAX's Wine Dive Fort Worth - W. 7th St. Ratings and Reviews
The menu is quite small and the place definitely has a college 'vibe', but the food is good! We were delighted with the pulled pork appetizer, the roasted brussels sprouts and the fried chicken. There's a talented chef in this kitchen. I would love to throw on some tablecloths, take out the TVs and change the music to satisfy my 'fine-dining' appetite, but -- evidenced by the full house and the tasty offerings -- this restaurant has found a great niche and is doing a lot of things right.
The service was excellent. We showed up before our reservation and with an extra person and they tried really hard to accommodate us. It is a small funky and fun place and we enjoyed it very much. The food was a bit cold when it arrived but they immediately rectified it and threw in a free dessert.! We will definitely return soon.
Our dining experience was nice enough. But not the white tablecloth upscale ambiance we expected. Our back in a dark, loud (under a speaker), crowded, corner table was not fun. We DID have a reservation. Our server could not have been better, though. We kept saying, "at least the food was good".
Enjoyed the first visit and looking forward to returning. The fried chicken dish was delicious, as was the Poutine...so yummy! The wine tasting was fun and tasty. I ended up purchasing a bottle of the red wine that I was drinking that evening for a decent price.
This is our go to brunch place! My daughter had the birthday pancakes, that was a SUPER sweet treat...had it been her actual birthday, I wouldn't have minded, she didn't mind at all :) Service is always great. The Egg Sandwich is an every visit favorite of mine, and my son loves the fried chicken! It's always dark and a little loud, but the food and service is worth it.
First time here and I cannot say enough about how good the service. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They let customer taste wine before making a decision. We had the blue cheese dip which was so good. Wish they would give a little more bread though. We had to order more for $2 which isn't a big deal. The Max and cheese was really tasty and the Oyster Nachos were really good. I ordered off the seasonal menu and got the diver scallops which were perfectly cooked. My brother in law ordered the chicken confit and would not share with anyone because he liked it so much. Everyone else cleaned their plates and thoroughly enjoyed what they ate. I didn't give 5 stars on the food because although it was good it didn't blow me away. I need to try their chicken the next time. Everything else was outstanding. Even the music selection was killer. Will definitely be back.
Enjoyed brunch at Max's. The bloody marys were great. Fried chicken is wonderful. Also had the shrimp tacos....delicious. The country fried steak and eggs (ribeye) was fantastic. Make sure you try the homemade chips. Not a ton of healthy options, but very very good food. Would definitely recommend for brunch. It's a bit different than your normal brunch spot which is a nice change of pace. Highly recommend.
Our first time there. We had heard a lot about their Fried Chicken and it didn't disappoint. However the mashed potatoes were a bit more firm than I like. Serving size was generous. Wine list is large and tasting is a nice touch before buying. Our server (I don't remember his name darn it) was superb! We will definitely be returning to try other menu items as well as the Sunday Brunch.
Our waitress was very attentive even when half of our party was late - even had the manager come to check on us, but never felt rushed. Had the seasonal pastrami sliders as an appetizer - some of the best pastrami I've ever had. The fried chicken was outstanding as usual. The only negative comment I have is on the collard greens - the flavor is great, but being from the south, I would expect them to be de-stemmed (detracts from an otherwise great side dish).
What a great concept! Open and try any bottle of wine (even a $500 Australian Penfolds) as long as you commit to 2 glasses. The wine is at the perfect temp. The bites are manageable in size... and they're flexible... I ordered Diver Scallops, yet, I knew that I'm supposed to try their famous Jalapeno fried chicken... "can I order just one piece of chicken?!?" SURE! I appreciate that flexibility. Great bites. Reasonable prices. Great atmosphere. And WINE. Lot's of it!
Try the shrimp and grits, add on a 6 oz chicken on the side.combined if you could have an intimate experience inside your mouth without your loved one or devices, this dish would be it.......superb!!!
Ask for tosha at the bar, warm greeting and wonderful service
The music and ambience were great. We ordered the highly recommended Fried Chicken and is was delicious. The wine list had some really good wines and they even have eco friendly wine on tap. Our server gave us great food and wine recommendations and was always present when we needed him. We will definitely go back to try other menu items that looked really good as well. Interesting menu.
I decided to try this restaurant because I'd purchased a Groupon for brunch there. My husband and I are in our 50s, so when we first walked in we weren't sure if the atmosphere was going to be too trendy/young for us, based on first impressions. But I'm happy to say it turned out to be a great place for us, and younger folk, too. And their playing the music at a lower volume was a big plus for us.
My husband ordered "Honey-Butter Benedict", and I got "Spiced Apple French Toast" with an extra side of scrambled eggs cooked hard. I also ordered a side waffle just so we could try it. While I expected to take home some of the waffle, there was also a meal's worth of leftovers of the Benedict entree, due to the generous portions of that meal, so two people could easily split it. Everything tasted very good. I don't eat spicy food, but because I love trying sauces and gravies, I sampled some of the jalapeno-cream gravy from my hubby's Benedict dish. It had a nice, full flavor with just a hint of heat. (But, if you like it spicy, they offer bottles of hot sauce.) And although we took a few minutes before we sampled the waffle, it still had a fluffy texture and we could literally cut it with just a fork. And the syrup that accompanied it was also very good. It was honestly the best waffle each of us ever had. We asked the waitress to give our thanks and compliments to Executive Chef Kinard, whom we had the pleasure of briefly meeting.
Only thing I would've changed was our seating. I didn't realize until we were already seated at a high table with stools that they actually have regular tables, too - but the waitress advised I can request my preference next time.
Max's is a comfortable yet upscale restaurant with lots of menu choices for everyone although I recommend something with fried chicken cause it is the best. Mimosas are great at brunch. I find the restaurant fun to dine at whatever time I go. Good location in Ft. Worth too. Easy to find free parking in the garage or free valet if you want to do that.
We enjoyed the low lighting and great music. The music was just loud enough that you could have a private conversation even with people sitting around you. The food was excellent. We went during happy hour and enjoyed the discounted appetizers. This is a great date place.
