Great lunch

Had a great lunch at Malia's prior to a nearby business meeting. The steak salad and the burger are both really great. You can never go wrong by choosing Malia's!

5-stars no doubt. The cold peach soup was the BOMB! Our family was very impressed and pleased with the service (our server was Sydney) and the FOOD was EXCELLENT. The SaleebScore was FOOD: 10/10; Service: 10/10 and Value 9:10. We paid far more on this trip for food for much less quality and service. This was voted by the family... More

After having lived in Aiken for 9+ years, I feel comfortable saying Malia's is probably the best and most consistent restaurant in Aiken. Their normal menu is always excellent but their specials go beyond excellent. Last evening, we started with two cold soups, one peach and one cucumber with crab. The peach was smooth and tasty. The cucumber was superb... More

Maria's is our favorite restaurant because we've never had a bad meal there. The prices are reasonable and staff is very friendly. Even though the menu is not extensive we've always found it to be varied enough to fill our needs. When we have out of town guests Malia's is where we take them.

I ordered the salmon it was excellent except they didn't care for the sauce that was on top of it. Service was good and nice clean place to enjoy a dinner

Stopped for lunch while traveling through Aiken on a recent business trip. Wife had a delicious Vidalia Onion Tomato Pie and I had Salmon Burger on Brioche. We both enjoyed the Cold Peach Soup. Our server David was friendly and attentive. We also had an opportunity to chat with the Chef. Highly recommend Malia's if you're traveling in the Aiken... More
