My most recent visit was with my family, eight to eighty-two years old. Some might not bring an eight year old here but that's your call It's a small menu with lots of sides. There were many specials. I think we ordered half the menu at our table. Not one complaint. I had cornmeal dipped catfish. Five out of five.... More

We were passing through Charlottesville and were starving. My friend had been to Maya a few years earlier, and it was walking distance from the hotel. They have a warm welcoming bar where we chose to have a drink as well as our dinner. They have an extensive list of cocktails and just as tasty as their description. We were... More

Amazing southern food. The chicken with ham gravy is delicious and the mac and cheese and corn bread were heavenly.

The waitstaff was polite and well prepared. The atmosphere was cute. The food was (mostly) delicious. My ribs were fattier that I prefer which is my only complaint. Make reservations. Prices range from $19-27 for dinner entrees.

We had worked a long day and decided to walk from our hotel to get some dinner. The hotel staff recommended we eat here. We arrived at Maya (after missing it the first time) somewhere around 7:30 PM on a Saturday night. It was packed! We didn't have a reservation, but the staff worked hard to find us a table... More

Maya is a charming restaurant located in the heart of Charlottesville's historic area. The menu is cleverly done with a selection of expertly prepared entrees and a list of sides from which you can choose two. I love their outdoor patio in the summer and their Sunday brunch is delicious. The wait staff is always competent and attentive.

We dine here rather frequently - always had a pleasant experience. The duck is especially nice. Only wish they would add more specials or change their menu once in a while - this doesn't impact the infrequent visitor, but would entice us to visit more often.

The restaurant is a short walk from campus and has an interesting spin on Southern food. The trout was delicately prepared and really delicious, and I thought that the cheddar grits were the perfect accompaniment. My son devoured the chili (a special) and the mac and cheese, and my husband enjoyed the chicken. The wait staff was very nice!

We had dinner at Maya's outdoor seating area for a special occasion on a Friday night. There were several large groups seated on the patio. The patio is near the street and just across the street are the train tracks. Adding to the noise, the plastic cover on the patio seems to keep all the noise in. It's lively, the... More
