“Great place to dine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

My wife and I dined there last night. Let me say that our experience was superb. Our waiter Greg was very attentive. The food is definitely an A+ attraction. But what topped it off was the great friendliness of the manager Kathleen who not only stopped by to chat but made us feel at home. Kuddos to Marios.

“Best Pizza in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Mario's has been a Galveston staple since it opened in an old corner store in the sixties. It's still the best pizza in town.

“NEEDS NEW MANAGMENT”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Marios has a fabulous view ill start off with that. The pizza is great as well, and the service is great. The only BIG problem i has with marios was i could hear the manager yelling at the staff as i was eating dinner. I don't know about anyone else but i think if a manager is treating a server badly they are more likely to treat the customers badly. My server was actually great, she apologized for the scuffle in the kitchen but i couldnt help but think who does that. Another 20 minutes later i heard the manager again yelling and cursing at the staff. As i was eating my White pizza while the manager "Michael" came by to see if everything was okay, as i began to mention that i heard him yelling in the kitchen he said oh the phones ringing and ran away. I love this place and the servers there are great, but they need to get that manager out of there and out of there FAST!

“Love it every time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We have been eating at Mario's for several years now. They have a buffet from 11-3 that is amazing! There are always a couple of pastas (they had spaghetti and an alfredo pasta), meatballs, steamed squash cooked with seasonings, and then from there it usually varies. This time there were ribs that had amazing flavor and were very tender. They also had Italian seasoned fried pollock and baked tilapia with seasonings. They always have delicious pizza as well. There is a salad bar included also. We've never been disappointed and always look forward to this place as soon as we arrive. The service is usually great! This time we had a waiter who had to be asked to refill our drinks and such but this isn't normal for Mario's. If you want to order dessert you won't be disappointed either! They have home made gelato in several flavors! Along with several kinds of cakes and pies. Bon appetite!
