I have eaten here so many times over the years. I still go back because their food still tastes the same to me. The prices are higher the wait staff has been replaced by a new crew but the pizza, pasta and chicken dishes still taste good. When the food starts to taste different Im going elsewhere. My only beef... More

Tried Maria's for the first time and really enjoyed my dinner. The server knew the entire menu in detail and made very helpful suggestions . I will definitely return again.

My girlfriend and I came here last night for pizza. Service was good as was the pizza. Prices were very reasonable and the size of the portions were good also as we saw other people getting their dinners. This restaurant has been here for a while although they changed owners several years ago. In here a lot I enjoy this... More

We hadn't been here for awhile, so we stopped here for lunch and ordered the medium pizza (just 2 of us)> It is as delicious as always, but very small. My wife ate 3 pieces and I had 5, unusual for both of us. AND, we ate the crust too. Actually I could have eaten the whole pizza. I think... More

Went there for lunch today and 3 "specials" were offered. They would NOT allow order off regular menu. The prices are OUTrageous. New owner, Mario, who bought business a few years ago from long established and popular "Maria" was totally inflexible and unapproachable. Small bowl of soup was $6.00. Other "specials" which could not be ordered this date were ALL... More

Living down the shore for many years now and this is one of our staple restaurants. Tasty homestyle food with reasonable prices. You get a very Mom & Pop and Family feel when you're there. Nothing fancy, but that's what makes you more apt to come back. Friendly staff, good food and cozy atmosphere.

Very nice Italian restaurant right in the center of town. The fancier dining room has a fireplace and upscale feel. There is also a booth area with Tiffany lamps, and a cozy bar area with high top tables and several TVs. Good quality food, many daily specials.

In January 2012, while staying in nearby Spring Lake for a weekend, we met a couple in a coffee shop. They suggested for us to try Maria's for dinner. The restaurant is a staple in the area. We have been back a few times. The owner was always there to greet guests. This time around I asked our waitress about... More
