First Visit, Good experience

Service very good. Waitress was extremely busy but service was still great. Food for our table excellent. You can tell it is family owned.

It was so crowded in downtown; it was the summertime in South Haven. I found Maria's off the main drag, and while the inside was a bit confusing, the food was good. I had the clam linguini, and the clams were in the shell; I had to ask for a bowl for the shells, and also had to ask for... More

Stopped in Oct 30. It was not busy when we arrived, however as we ate it became busier. Many of the patrons were locals and Were treated like family. Although we were on a mini vacation the waitress made us feel extremely welcome. We ordered chicken parmigiana and spaghetti and meatballs, each came with a salad and bread. Both entrees... More

Maybe we caught them on a bad day. Server was short and inattentive. Salad was over dressed. Pasta was good. When we inquired about a desert menu, we were told they didn't have one but there were cakes and gelato up front that we could go look at.

We recently visited South Haven for a long weekend. We have visited the area many times but when it was time to eat we were standing in front of Maria's and though, "let's try it". It was well worth taking the risk. Maria's specializes in Italian fare. My wife had their Mediterranean Vegetable pizza, my son had their sausage and... More

Me and my wife came here on a Friday for lunch and they had a good special for a personal sized pizza with two toppings and a drink for $8. The pizzas came out great. Great value on the rest of the menus. We both liked it.

This is one of our favorite places to stop. The smells will entice you and the cooking will not disappoint. The charm and warmth if this restaurant comes from it's rustic décor, small table placement and warm fireplace. We love to stop by for a antipasti for 2 and a glass of wine. Wonderful afternoon break anytime of the year... More

The restaurant was clean. The pizza was definitely delicious. Last review said it taste like meijers food. Do not agree. Granted person was talking on phone again and loud voice for a minute over the music. But the waitress was nice. Staff looked happy. Worth their restaurants rating. Will come again. Returning from a work detail on Indiana and Trip... More
