Went to Mario's for our first dinner on Galveston trip. Read all the good reviews and decided to try this place out. The decor and vibe of this restaurant was very good. We were seated without a wait and shown to our table. It was Friday night and still happy hour, so I decide to have a drink from their happy hour menu. It said call drinks $4, so I ordered a Crown Royal and Sprite. Now, I have been to a lot of bars in my life and when it says "call" drink it means you can call whatever you want in the drink. Apparently not at Marios. My Crown and Sprite ended up costing $6.75 because I called for the Crown Royal. Whatever!! We had the garlic cheese bread appetizer served with warm marinara sauce. This was pretty good. The warm sauce went well with the cheesy bread. For entrees my wife had eggplant parmesan, daughter had spaghetti and meatball and I had the Mario Combo which included fettuchini alfredo, chicken rosa and sirloin marsala. The alfredo was good, the sirloin marsala was very good. The rest was just okay. My wife and I did not care much for their eggplant parmesan. We both agreed we have had better elsewhere. This is a nice place for a date as atmosphere is very romantic. I did see a lot of people were eating pizzas here. If we return, that is probably what we will try next.
