Never been to Battle Creek and TripAdvisor listed this restaurant as #1 in Battle Creek, so gave it a try. I have to agree with their assessment. Had a wonderful dining experience. I tried the Copper River Salmon special and it was delicious. Service was great which made the experience even more enjoyable. Prices seemed a bit high to me... More

Wow. My wife and I recently moved to the area from Chicago. We are convicted fine dining addicts. We stopped in for an early dinner on a whim and Chef Eric did not disappoint. We had salmon and halibut which were specials. The fish was perfectly prepared. The accompanying mushroom risotto and curry rice dishes were even better....each had an... More

In town for the day, we utilized tripadvisor.com to select our lunch spot. Malia's became the obvious choice, based on the ratings and menu.

The restrooms are also... More

I love this restaurant and honestly I haven't found one better in battle creek. The chef is always willing to accommodate any special food needs. The staff is always nice. The pasta dishes are my favorite but honestly I have eaten here multiple times and haven't had a bad dish. If you are looking for good wine, pasta or seafood... More

With limited options for upscale dining in the small town of Battle Creek, Malia is a gem! Classic menu items like the delicious mushroom soup and yummy spaghetti are always available. Daily features are also available & always creative and tasty! Malia has a wonderful wine selection, intimate atmosphere, and great location in downtown Battle Creek. If you have room... More

My husband and I decided to try this place for lunch. We arrived at 2 pm and they were closed with no explanation. Pretty disappointing since their business hours were 11 am - 8 pm.

Best restaurant in Battle Creek. Consistently excellent food, wine and service. Jeff will accommodate special requests if he was what he needs to make it.
