Malia's is in a great location - right in the heart of downtown. The Pork Scallopini was an amazing combination of flavors, the salad was light and tasty, and the Kahlua fudge brownie was scrumptious! Our server was very friendly, and the entire dining experience...More

I ant go there without getting their raspberry pie with vanilla ice cream. Their veal is excellent. Salads are wonderful as is the bread.

I moved to the area seven years ago and have heard raves about this place but didn't try it until this month. When we walked in, there was no one to greet us for several, and it was late for lunch. The guy who finally...More

The seating at the bar is first come, first served. Courtyard seating is available weather depending. If you'd like to eat in the dining room, I'd strongly recommend making a reservation. Call 8036433086 to make one.

Description
In our 30th year, we remain dedicated to the culinary excitement afforded by the finest, freshest and most ethically produced ingredients. We source locally whenever possible, befriending our farmers who are so vital to the kind of dining experience we’re known for. Then, sometimes it’s lamb from Australia or salmon from Scotland. We're dedicated to our loyal local following who are routinely joined by the international travelers drawn to “the good life” we all enjoy here in Aiken. Malia’s thrives on the friendly faces who, at the end of the experience, say, “Wow.”
