Is it cynical to give an 'Average' rating when you get mediocre food with 'so-so' service? Is that really 'Average' for the restaurant experience of today? We visited Maria's twice in the same weekend about three years ago and had great meals. When we booked our weekend in South Haven, Maria's immediately went on the 'To-Do' list. We expected to...

We took our family of five on a Friday night around 5:30 the week of July 4th. They don't take reservations and we didn't want to wait long with young kids. We were able to walk right in and get a seat. The food was very good. Kids really liked the pizza and spaghetti. Service was good as well. When... More

Found this place walking back to our car after Clementines had a 2 hour wait. Waited 15 minutes, had excellent service and excellent food. Highly recommend the alfredo, and my husband loved their pizza and root bear list! Glad we stumbled upon this place, liked it better than Clementines!

Cracked pepper crab soup is awesome. They have the best pasta in town. If you love root beer this is your place. You can choose from several different kinds. After all that save room for the best Italian desserts in town!

We stopped for lunch on our way into South Haven. 2 had chicken parmigiana, one had beef ravioli, and I had cheese stuffed shells. All were great! Raspberry dressing for the salad was wonderful!

The breakfasts are huge, lunch has whatever you want and dinner time has white tablecloths and becomes a very nice choice for dinner. We came home , the last week of June.

This place was obviously popular because the wait to sit inside was 45 minutes. We chose to sit outside and not wait. The service was really slow, probably because it was packed, but once we had ordered the food came out fast. I'm typically not a fan of doughy crust, but Maria's did a good job. The pizza was a...

My husband and I stopped at Maria's during our trip to South Haven. The entryway was full of people and the restaurant, though small, was very full. The hostess got us seated fairly quickly in spite of the crowd. The good was excellent. I loved the ambiance - small and intimate with all the right feel of an Italian kitchen!... More

Maria's was rated #3 in South Haven and we know why - outstanding Italian food, excellent service, and Old Blue Eyes (that's Sinatra, for the younger generation) playing in the background, and just a 10 minute wait. A much better value than Clementine's, which was fine but the wait of 45 minutes wasn't worth it.
