Celebrated friend's birthday there. We were seated promptly and our server came immediately to accept our orders. We had questions about a couple of items we normally have but which were not on that day's menu. He didn't offer to check just said I guess we're not serving that today. We ordered other selections which were very good but we... More

Their food is excellent and atmosphere is nice. It's a good place to meet for lunch, and not too pricey!

We have always been huge fans of the food at Malia's but it has gotten even BETTER! Part owner and Chef, Michael, is a wonderful addition. His style fits perfectly with Malia's desire for fresh, interesting, quality dishes. And not just the food has gotten better. Matt the mix-master serves up unusual drinks that are simply delightful. Last night I... More

Malia's is a wonderful place to dine, with attentive, friendly service and the food is delicious and and varied. The appetizer of House Made Pork Sausage with Grilled Peach and Mostarda is excellent! The entree of Grilled Chicken and Corn Risotto is the best tasting chicken dish I have ever had. On your trip to Aiken, this restaurant should best... More

I have been eating here for many years. Never dissapointed! Excellent service without attitude. Great for lunch or dinner. If you are planning to walk in during the weekend, you may want to make a reservation.

Every time I visit my sister in Aiken, I insist we eat at Malia's Restaurant. It is never disappointing. The food is fresh and delicious. Nicely presented and large portions. Service is excellent with a most attentive wait staff. Several family members ordered the Tomato and Vidalia Onion Pie. It was delicious. My husband likes a good hamburger and they... More
