  • Lunch, Dinner, Late Night
Like the original Max's Wine Dive on Washington Avenue and the other seven locations throughout the country, this is the place to go when you want to drink high-end wine along with “gourmet comfort food” in a casual, rock and roll environment. The company's mantra, “Fried Chicken and Champagne?...Why the Hell Not?!” pretty much sums up the place. The food selection consists of year-round favorites like “Famous Southern Fried Chicken” and “Shrimp & Grits,” as well as a changing seasonal menu that provides Max's regular foodie patrons with great variety throughout the year. Don't know anything about wine? No problem, the staff here trains on a weekly basis, giving them the knowledge to help both casual wine drinkers and more experienced imbibers make the perfect selection; you can even buy bottles to go here at reasonable prices. Texas beers are on draft for those who want to change things up, or just refuse to do vino.
