Eight of us, visiting from out of town, went to Maya Restaurant on a Monday night. Many restaurants were closed on Monday night, summertime and college is not in session. We got arrived early and they accommodated us immediately. The menu is not extensive but a nice variety. There were several unlisted specials. Southern flavors and cooking. Those that had... More

I don't have anything bad to say, but I don't have anything good to say either. If you want to try it, go on a Tuesday for their $14/person special. I was unimpressed enough to want to give it a 2/5 star, but there wasn't anything wrong really, except that it just wasn't that great. I'm surprised to see how... More

We had the prix fixe menu here after UVa's graduation. All three of us ordered the salmon and it was fantastic! Our table was inside but they have a nice outside eating area also. My only complaint was the fact that our server failed to bring our second drink order until we were ready to go. We had waited 15... More

My husband and I just had dinner at Maya. It's a lovely setting and the food is delicious. Our server Mike was attentive and gracious. Be sure to visit and ask to sit on the patio. The BBQ ribs are tender and delicious and the soft shell crab special was quite good. We will visit this restaurant again.

On a recent trip to Charlottesville, someone recommended that we eat at Maya's for their $12 Tuesday menu. A limited menu, this southern down home cooking place was great. We ate on the patio (very nice) and saw that it was a place popular with the locals. (Come early or you may have to wait for a seat.) If you... More

Excellent Southern food, terrific service, and great with allergies. Good for business meetings or groups. They have an upstairs that works well for groups. The bar is always lively and the bourbon selection isn't half bad. The soups are delicious and the cornbread is so good you'll ask for seconds. I usually get fish and it's consistently excellent. Enjoy!

After seeing fantastic reviews of this place, I decided to give it a try. We made a reservation, an as soon as we got the restaurant the hostess got us seated. The restaurant has two sections, an outdoors patio which is very nice, and an indoor restaurant and bar which is quite rustic. The menu is not very long (which... More

This restaurant is always full...locals love it. It is almost across the street from the Amtrak Station, so convenience is a good part of its success.
