I asked the front desk at the Boar's Head Inn for a recommendation for family casual as I was in town for the weekend with my family including my wife, and two daughters age 12 & 14. He recommended Maya. We were able to get reservations at the last minute. We got a seat in a both at the bar.... More

We made the mistake of visiting this restaurant in the pouring rain. The entrance door facing the street was locked. Bartenders, Waitresses and other staff watched us for almost five minutes as we unsuccessfully tried to enter the restaurant in the pouring rain. No one informed us of the alternate entrance. The "instructions on the door" were so faint that... More

We ate at this restaurant 2 months ago (on a Sunday night) so I’ve forgotten the specifics which is a shame because we had a really nice time but I won’t be able to give a lot of details. But overall we had a very nice, pleasant time and I would highly recommend this restaurant. We had 3 of their... More

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.
