We've been going to Malia's since it opened. It's a great place for romantic dinners with your favorite partner, and for friends to get together. They can accommodate larger groups, as well. The food is terrific, as is the service. It's within walking distance to the Aiken Community Playhouse so it's a great place to go for a pre-show dinner.

We went to Malia's for a combo birthday dinner this past weekend - my husband and daughter-in-law. What a great meal! From the wine choices to dessert - everything was superb!

The menu changes as does the seasons of local produce and meat she chooses for her dishes. Chef Malia provides a magnificent menu for lunch and dinner. Each dish presented is marvelously described making it difficult to chose.

Just went in for a quick lunch - and after being warmly welcomed we ended up staying much longer. David was our server and was wonderful and so attentive. He took care of us in a remarkable way making sure we had everything we needed and wanted. The food was so delicious and we savored every bite. Thank you Malias... More

Malia's is a unique restaurant in downtown Aiken. We have eaten there for lunch and dinner and never been disappointed. They serve homemade soups, and very fresh and high quality meats and vegetables. For dinner the Salmon is scrumptious and for lunch the steak salad or strawberry chicken salad is popular. I've also had the hamburgers and they are very... More

We received a gift certificate from our realtor to Malia's. We haven't been there for about 4 years and were excited to go back. So, we went on my partner's birthday expecting the level of excellence that we had 4 years ago. In fairness I will say that the ambience is so Old Aiken, which we love, and the service... More

OMG! I am about to gush. I just came from supper at Malia's. I had gone there for lunch earlier today (do you think I like their food?), and had asked for the supper menu. I had come with my mouth set for calamari, something which Chef Michael had not had since I have been going there. Instead, on the... More

I discovered this delightful restaurant by accident and was so glad that I did. I had a very late lunch and was accommodated nicely, even though it was the time between lunch and dinner. The food is gourmet quality, the service very congenial. I had a wonderful Squash Bisque soup that was perfect for a cold day. This restaurant specializes... More
