Good Italian experience

Very good spaghetti and meatballs. Pizza are also very good. Real nice sandwiches to take out. Just great to have a good restaurant on route 213 in Chesapeake City.

We love their pasta & cheese steak sandwich. We have not tried Pizza, but we are sure they are also good.

It's the little details that count... Getting ice in your ice tea is one of those details that makes a difference. It took 40 minutes to get our food, sandwiches and nachos. The waiter never checked back and while very apologetic that my tea didn't have ice, he never brought the bill either. We had to go to the takeout... More

Maria's is an adequate Italian spot, just south of Chesapeake City on Route 213. I've eaten there several times and found it to be a good value, nothing fancy and the food is appealing overall. I would not rate this as a fancy spot, instead, it is more of a pizza place "grown up" a bit to offer a nicer... More

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 with cheese sauce was likewise excellent. I have met the... 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
