We read reviews on Trip Advisor and asked people we met in Aiken and all had wonderful things to say about Malia's. Unfortunately that was not our experience. On the positive side, the Caesar Salad was delicious. The rest of our experience was disappointing. When we arrived the restaurant was not busy but our table was not cleaned and set... More

We had a family dinner there with 12 people total. We were seated in an area separated, but not too much, from the main dining room. The service was excellent. David was our server and though we tried to confuse him with our drink orders he was unflappable and precise! Drinks were good. Dinner was delicious. Portions were just right... More

We enjoyed beef quesadillas, pork scalloppini, chicken salad, burger, and a wonderful soup. The raspberry pie was an overfilling, but delightful, way to end this great meal (with an exclamation point!)

Four of us voted early, about ten days or so. Afterward, we went to Malia's for Bloody Marys and lunch. I had not been there for quite a while and was pleased to see some positive changes. The whole area was neat, tidy and very clean. We were seated promptly and our waiter took our orders. He was polite and... More

We will dine at Malia's when we have out of town guests or we are celebrating. The food is excellent and the menu is refined to a few few wonderful items.

After being seated indoors, our waiter overheard us say that it was too bad we didn't know there was outdoor seating on their rear patio. He moved us along with our drinks to a very comfortable table where we enjoyed the a lovely fountain under the stars. The food was great and the wines top notch!

We were visiting and noticed this restaurant was highly rated on Tripadvisor. David, our waiter, made the experience even more enjoyable. He took the time to give us recommendations and favorites. The food was outstanding!! Atmosphere very relaxing, we chose to dine outside. Visitors, do not pass by without eating at Malia's!!

Menu changes daily with some items that are almost always available. The day we visited the special soup was pumpkin shrimp. It was outstanding! Spinach salads were crisp and fresh; raspberry vinaigrette was lightly mixed with the greens and seasonal fruit. Delicious. Our waitress was attentive without hovering. We arrived toward the end of the lunch hours, but we weren't... More

Malia's had long been my favorite restaurant in Aiken but recently the food had become very unappetizing and I stopped going. Went back for lunch last week and it was back to what it used to be. The food was excellent. Let's hope they keep it up
