Excellent Greek food, too!

In a county woefully lean on anything other than pizza, hamburgers and hot dogs, Maria's is a welcome pit stop. Although I can (for now) only address take out, their Greek food is absolutely top notch. I ordered pastitsio (noodles, béchamel and meat) last night, and it was fantastic. Tortellini... read more

My husband and I have been eating at Maria's for a long time. We love that it's a local business, just down the road and mostly, decent food for reasonable prices. I have noticed the prices creeping up (understandable) but the quality of the food decreasing. But, the most distressing for us is the service. We just sat for an... More

We were greeted upon arrival by a young girl who was extrememly nervous and obviously not well trained. It turns out she was also our waitress. She even asked for our drink orders before she seated us as we were walking to the table!! One of the reasons we chose this place was because they had previously told me on... More

Just a disclaimer I grew up outside of Philly where you're average pizza place blows everywhere else out of the water except for maybe New York. So I guess this place is the everywhere else.

If you can't get to Philly for a cheese steak then Pat's Pizaa in Elkton or Maria's in Chesapeake City are the places to go. Even a "small" cheese steak is enough for two people. It is really tasty!

Stopped here for a date night dinner. The service was good and the waitress was pleasant, and that's where it ends. I got the special, shrimp ravioli over spinach with "crab". Not recommended. The wine list is short and the Chianti is terrible. The garlic bread was good, I'll give them that. It's been in business for a while so... More

I have gone to this place a number of times over a number of years. I have never experienced the speed (or lack thereof) of service that I experience here. I swore I would not return after my last visit 3 years ago and then someone convinced me to try it again a week or so ago. Nothing has changed.... More

Ive found that when it comes to Maria's pizza you either love it or hate it. Although the majority love it. They offer quality Italian food with a unique taste that you usually wouldnt find in just any establishment. The cheese is great, the crisp (but still soft) crust is better, and that sweet sauce is what brings it all... More

While staying at Chesapeake City, MD, Barb and I found a great place to eat. The name is Maria’s Italian Restaurant, and it is located at 2525 Augustine Herman Hwy, Chesapeake City, MD. We went to eat there at 4 p.m., so we could have lots of time looking at the nearby Holiday Lights, and stores in Chesapeake City. Inside... More
