As guests at the Don Cesar, we decided to splurge and try a special dinner at the Maritana and we were not disappointed! The setting was understated but elegant, the service was impeccable and the fresh seafood was spectacular. This restaurant would be in the top 10 in any major city in the United States!

There is nothing at this restaurant that we didn't like. It is beautiful! The food is incredible (thanks to a chef I was told came to them from the Ritz Carlton)! The staff must have trained in NYC at the best restaurants and then taken Southern hospitality lessons in Charleston before coming to the Maritana Grille. They are wonderful! Be... More
