Early dinner around 5:30pm on a Thursday. Short walk from our hotel JW Marriott even though it was 100F outside. Fairly empty to start with but filling up as it got a bit later. We split the fried chicken with mashed potatoes. It was very...More

I don't eat fried chicken often, but when I do its from here.. Best chicken I've ever tasted.. So hot and juicy every time! Sides are delicious as well to go with it.. Collar greens are a hit! Well worth the price!

They give a lot of food in one sitting. I really liked the greens that came with my fried chicken, and the sandwich was huge!

There's nothing wrong with sipping remarkable wine to a bit of rock n' roll in the Live Music Capital of the World is there? Nah, we didn't think so either. Welcome to MAX's Wine Dive Austin. Perched on the corner of 2nd Street and San Jacinto Blvd., a stone's throw from The Austin Convention Center and a stroll from The Texas State Capital Building, MAX's Wine Dive is the stop for your dining experience in the heart of downtown Austin. Embracing the music that pumps Austin's veins, MAX's Wine Dive goes above and beyond what you ever thought a wine bar or restaurant was supposed to be. With a vast array of gourmet comfort food with a twist, locally sourced farm to table taste bud tacklers from Executive Chef Erica Beneke (yeah, you may know her as the winner of Chopped), and a wine list that includes fan favorite labels, unique and interesting selections and some privately sourced options, we mean to leave our mark on the restaurant and wine bar scene. MAX's Wine Dive Austin is one of the largest Wine Dives due to the tremendous event space downstairs known as "The Underground." Stretching more than 6,000 square feet beneath the restaurant and our two neighboring establishments, "The Underground" is comprised of three separate rooms, all varying in size and décor. "The Lounge" is home to our high-end wine cellar and lockers, and is the perfect space for private diners, business meetings or wine socials. "The Vintage" offers a bit more room for larger affairs such as anniversary and birthday parties or corporate work gatherings. Lastly, our "Grand Reserve", which is our largest space, can accommodate anything from weddings to rehearsal dinners, to large-scale celebrations of any sort! Whether you're celebrating in "The Underground" or hanging out upstairs and marveling over Chef Erica's delectable dishes, we are here to ensure you have a memorable experience. So if you're catching some of Austin's live music up on 6th Street, looking for some light bites and bubbles after a walk around Lady Bird Lake or coming in from seeing our famous Austin Bats on the Congress Street Bridge, be sure to hit up our comfortable and cool atmosphere. We will be the restaurant with aromas of Grandma's cooking wafting outside of the door, and Johnny Cash slinging Folsom Prison banter over our speakers.
