Food was excellent, especially the bread. Only bad thing was they only serve their wine and soda, no beer or cocktails.

Maria's has the feel of family! The pizza is delicious and wait staff so friendly! The manager helped us find an urgent care clinic when she saw we were trying to search for one on our phones .

Loved the baked pasta and veggie wrap, and the breadsticks (which are apparently locally famous) were the BEST I've had! The staff is friendly and the atmosphere was very nice. It is a block or two away from the main streets, so be sure to find it!

We went for gelato but never got any as the food was so good and very generous portions. We were there for lunch. Great service too!

It was our first visit to South Haven so all of our restaurant visits were a first time experience. We (5 adults) all thoroughly enjoyed our individual meals at Maria's and even shared amongst each other. Sicilian pasta, three cheese ravioli, Chicken Parmesan, salads and bread were all great. Our server was attentive and helpful in our selections. Very happy... More

This is our 3rd trip to South Haven and our 3rd trip to Maria's. I love the food but the service is always hit or miss. I agree with a prior reviewer there is nothing special about the bread (ours was late & under cooked). W

Our family enjoyed this small establishment. We had the nightly special, bourbon chicken, and chicken Parmesan. The chicken parm seemed to be a very popular entree. Portions were very large. Even the men in our group didn't finish their meals. Everything was tasty. Service was just okay. Our waitress didn't notice when we needed refills on drinks and we had... More

This was our first (and last) visit to Marias. After reading reviews on Marias and seeing their supposed #1 ranking in South Haven, we decided to visit. The decor was old, cheap and stale. Their "famous" bread is nothing more than doughy, chewy pizza dough. Their veggie pasta is a pile of frozen veges, including almonds(?!), over linguine. The service... More

I have been going to Maria's since they opened and have enjoyed the food there. When I got engaged, I looked around at other restaurants in South Haven, but Maria's had a lot of food for the price. They provided the containers for the food and the heat lamp thing underneath so the food would stay hot. It was a... More
