Service was fine except for an older waitress who seemed to be having a bad night, loud voice talking and yelling back and forth to other wait staff. I didn't know if I needed to jump up and run, or stay put. Food was just so so, not real Italian, but just ok. Pretty sure the sauce was out of... read more

We went to Maria's specifically to sample their pizza. At first they told us we couldn't order pizza as they had no dough, then relented and came up with some dough after all. The pizza was just average, nothing outstanding about it. The server was pleasant. We did not try any of their other Italian dishes and only ate there... More

We ate here on a Monday at 12:30pm and there were very few people in the restaurant so we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The woman who waited on us was very nice and attentive. They had a small root beer menu which is always kind of fun on vacation. Their Italian food was great; I... More

Family was visiting from out of state and stopped at Clementine's (who doesn't?) at around 2:00. but as usual there was a waiting list to get in on a Saturday. We just happened to see this place (a block off the main street in South Haven) and thought that we would give it a try. The ambience here is certainly... More

My family has a great meal at Maria's. We arrived around 5:30 and avoided a wait but there seemed to be quite a wait when we left. All the food was delicious. The breadsticks were particularly great. Our waitress was very prompt and friendly. We really enjoyed our experience.

Waited a long time to get in. Got out drinks and salads and bread in a timely manor. The dinner service was ridiculous. A couple people at our table would get food, then a couple people at another table would get food, then ten minutes later a couple people at a third table would get food. By the time the... More

Maria's is a wonderful find! We went on a cool Tuesday night in July, so we avoided the weekend crowds. People were waiting (and shivering) outside when we left at 8:00, though. My husband and I had two shrimp dishes, one with linguine and one with spinach ravioli with a creamy pesto sauce, and both were really good. Salad and... More

We are on vacation this week with three small children. A friend recommended Maria's so we thought we would try their pizza. It was delicious! My daughter, who usually only eats taco pizza, had 2 slices of cheese pizza. The kids loved it as much as my wife and I. Their sauce and crust really made it great. Also, their... More

Family of 8 (4 kids/4 adults) attended on a Friday night. The service was awesome for the kids...very understanding of the dynamic of eating with children under the age of 6. And the food was excellent. We had the Caprese Salad & Meatballs for appetizers (Both excellent). Table had a wide variety of entrees & all loved their food. Stuffed... More

This eatery like ALL others in town have a slogan. Its WAIT! no reservations. They have some park benches outside which helps the hungry soul that wants in. After we got our Pager we sat outside and watched the people come and go. one hour later we got in and the meal was worth the wait. The wait staff was... More
