“So-So for Dinner”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We took our son, daughter-in-law and 5 kids to Maria's and it was an OK choice for that group, as the food was plentiful and reasonably priced--a typical Greek family restaurant. Nothing was outstanding, but nothing awful. The house wine was cheap and pretty good.

Our service was a different story. Our waitress seemed to be panicked by our large group and was way too frantic, even though we tried to let her know that we were not in a hurry, that she should just relax a bit. Any request seemed to upset her. She ended up telling us we should have made reservations, even though we were able to be seated right away. For that reason, and the mediocrity of the food, we probably won't return.

“Crab Cake Eggs Benedict!!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I fell in love with Lobster Eggs Benedict in Key West a few years ago so I was eager to try these. Very good breakfast with excellent, friendly service. I really wanted to go back for their Greek salad because that is another favorite of mine but I ran out of time. Nice views of the water, not beach side but almost!

“Fine Breakfast”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We stayed just down the road from Maria's and went there for breakfast once during our stay. The service was great, and the restaurant itself was very homely. The breakfast was absolutely fine - nothing massively special, but definitely adequate.

“good breakfast”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Had breakfast here several times, this is a no frills little restaurant with super nice staff, (much better food and service than fancier place across the street). in good weather you can sit outside and people watch along the main road in bradenton beach
