Great food, great service, and an affordable price. This place is a must when we visit 7 mile island.

We were quickly seated on a Monday evening by a friendly young hostess in this bustling place. We usually avoid places with "family" in the name but we knew this to be a Stone Harbor mainstay so let's give it a try. An equally young waitress, "C", greeted us and whipped through the specials in a kind of valley talk... More

We have been going here for years and never had a bad meal or experience. The dinners are wonderful, nice proportions, and the staff amazing. Just be aware the place is very popular and can get crowded but there was enough room at our table. Just wish they took reservations.

The special is always outstanding but tonight I went tilapia (I am not a salmon fan). The herbs and spices were perfect - great meal. Bridget was so friendly and made the kids feel special. We will be back next Saturday !

It rained all day, so we headed to dinner a little early, thinking there would be a big crowd. We got there around 5:45 and were seated immediately, which was great. Menu has a big selection of pasta, chicken dishes, and some fish, plus daily specials. We didn’t drink but saw other tables bring their own bottles and Marabella’s provides... More

We were looking forward to trying Marabella's. Every Saturday we try a different restaurant in Stone Harbor or Avalon. I will not return to this one. The mushroom marsala appetizer was canned mushrooms, why?, fresh mushrooms are readily available. The calamari was overdone. Chicken parm was dry with a sauce that was acidic and tasteless. Whole wheat penne, very underdone... More

We started going to Marabella's in the 1970's. At the time, it was a little operation called Marabella's Fish Net. The seafood was out of this world. They evolved into a small restaurant. The quality was amazing (we knew that there was an Italian grandmother in the back making things by hand) and the restaurant grew to the 2 rooms... More

A great spot for families, and after 7:30 or so, a nice spot for couples. Marabella's has the 5 o'clock family rush, and they handle it well. After the initial rush of families with kids, its gets a bit quieter. A nice spot to sit and watch the line at Springers grow and grow. The food is classic italian with... More

Our family had eaten at Marabella's for the past 25 years. We come back every year because it's a great family place with really good Italian food! Our kids, who are now in their 30s put dinner at Marabella's on the top of their "must do" list in Stone Harbor. The food is consistently good and reasonably priced. Our top... More
