My husband and I visited Malia's twice, a week apart - once for a birthday meal, once with another couple. The first night, we were served French beans that were a mixture of spoiled (wrinkled, discoloured, and sour) and inadequately cooked. I sent them back and was given a serving of spinach cooked in butter. The meal was so disappointing... More

Nice place with good choices of appetizers in lieu of entrees and Caesar salad with real anchovies. Reasonably priced wines and try the red raspberry pie. Good service.

All four of us had different selections and each one was excellent. Lasagna, Short ribs, Sea Bass and I had the salmon which was to die for. The best I have ever had and with this scrumptious sauce. Service was great too. Going back very soon!

Malias great food. Go at lunch if you can. Food is just as good, just more affordable. Options include free range choices.

For a small town, this restaurant is top notch. Great food, superb service and nice ambiance. We liked the varied menu with a different twist. Gotta try the berry pie!

Malia's has it all...great food, drink and service. The patio in the back is wonderful in the fall and spring. My husband's office holds their office soiree there once a year. Everything is delish!!! Very well thought out menu. The weeknight supper menu is a great value too....we are trying it very soon!!!

Great place for a girlie lunch or a business lunch. Quiet atmosphere - not a lot of children as the menu is more sophisticated. Service is wonderful and you never are rushed. There is a daily special so the menu always changes.
