    The food is very good. We had the Rasta Pasta and the Tuna steak with oysters. We were very pleased with our meal. Outdoor dining available with view of the beach.

    My wife and I and another couple are frequent diners at Mahi Mah's. The noise level in the restaurant is noisy but the food is usually good. Last week two in our party of four received seafood meals that were over-cooked. Our server offered to exchange the meals. One diner asked for a replacement meal the other decided to accept the over cooked meal. Later regretting this decision. When my wife's replacement meal arrive it too was over cooked. By this time the other diners were almost through eating, so rather than try a third time she accepted the meal as is, overcooked. The four of us have taken Mahji Mah's off our list of places to dine. This was the second occasion that we've encountered a problem the way the food was prepared.

    We usually go to Rudee's or Catch 31 when we are in town but My husband and I decided to try a different. BIG mistake! Even with reservations we had to wait a good half hour for a table that 'was just being cleaned off' only to be shown to a dirty table?!? The waiter was pleasant enough when he chose to appear - which wasn't often. The food was god awful! My husband had the fish and chips while I had a seafood platter. Both meals were greasy, over cooked and unappetizing. We haven't been this disappointed in a long time...

    Seafood is very good. We had no problem with Open Table reservation and were seated promptly at the perfect table -- right by the fireplace which felt terrific on a cold, wet Saturday evening. I had tried to make reservations directly and was told they were not taking any more reservations. I decided to book through Open Table and was able to get them! From now on I will always book through Open Table!!!

  • Mean hostesses, Best waiter ever
    RVArestaurantGoer
    Dined on 11/28/2013
    The hostesses were extremely unfriendly and downright rude (gave us sighs and eye-rolls and withheld info), but our waiter made up for it. He was polite, helpful and attentive and I have never had a better waiter at ANY restaurant. My group of four from Richmond, VA ended up having a lovely meal, but I still start fuming whenever I recall how badly we were treated by the hostesses (there were several stationed at the front desk, all looking very put-out). They had us walk around outside in the extreme cold to wait for our table – not telling us there was a bar where we could wait. Telling us simply "No" when we asked if there was a place we could put our coats, etc. The waiter made it all good and the meal was very nice.

    Three of us celebrated a birthday at this restaurant as it came highly recommended. We had a table overlooking the ocean and the place was quiet around 6 on a weekday even though there were quite a few patrons. We each had a different seafood dish and all were pleased. We split two desserts and one could not be finished as the main dish portions were quite large. The waiter was very attentive. We would eat here again when visiting the area.

    For some reason I believed that if had a reservation that we would be seated at table that wasn't in the bar area, in the flow of restaurant traffic, next to the door that patrons used to go in and out of the bar for their smoke breaks (they seated us at their worst table). After a couple of words with hostess we managed to grab booth in the bar area as people were leaving in a slightly better location. The problem as I saw it was that the hostess girls were all fairly young and didn't understand the difference between date and dinner date. Most people that go to Mahi Mah's don't book the reservations the day before or at all and people don't book a high top table at the bar for dinner. My review was revised due to character limitations.

    Our business associates working in this area as I am now, recommended this place to us for our 17th Anniversary, but had only ordered seafood there. Her Strawberry Daiquiri was really tart , her rib eye steak was so burnt that she had to flick the burnt ashes off just to find a bite to get a taste & then cut it in the middle. My wife's baked potato was not cooked thoroughly and most of it was so hard that the butter would not melt in the hard chunks. When our wonderful waitress came around, she saw the look on my wife's face, then looked down at the steak & knew there was a problem, the steak was black as soot. She was embarrassed that this steak to our table & offered to prepare us another one, but by then my wife was discouraged.

    Great food, a little on the pricey side so we save it for special occasions. The only negative comment I have is that the tables are very close together and when there is a full house it is not only tight quarters, but very loud. This is not very condusive of a relaxing meal. I feel that with the prices of the food there should be a bit more privacy for diners.

    We arrived at 3 PM for the Easter Buffet, but had not been warned that at 3:30 they would stop refreshing the line, so consequently, to us, the buffet was "tired" and unexciting. I also don't like paying a high price for a buffet and then being charged $2.50 for a glass of iced tea. Nevertheless, the overall experience was pleasant. Service was good.

    As we arrived at the Hostess stand we were greeted with a polite hello and informed that we would have 1 1/2 hours to enjoy our meal before we would have to leave as they had other reservations arriving. I have never entered a restaurant where I was given a certain time frame to enjoy my meal. I have eaten at Mahi Mah's before so I was expecting a very nice Easter Sunday Buffet. This is not what we received. The selections were few, bread, coffee, tea were extra, the desert selection was cheesecake or small bites. My Mom and I each had one adult beverage she had a coffee. A 20% gratuity was automatically added and our bill was $99.

    We dined here on Valentine's Day thinking a nice dinner overlooking the oceanfront would be fun. When we arrived, we were taken quickly to our table which had a nice candle and rose waiting for us--nice touch. But that was where our pleasant experience ended. We waited ten minutes for our server to arrive with our drinks (water). They had a special menu for V Day that was a 4 course meal. However it took 20 minutes for our appetizer to arrive--a cheeseboard. It included cheap cheeses and stale crackers. The rest of our food was okay, but not great. And our service throughout was sub-par. You can imagine our displeasure when we saw the 19% gratuity added to our bill. The manager was no help. Will not eat there again.

    My boyfriend and I went to Mahi Mah's for Valentine's Day and we were not impressed at all. The crab dip was terrible, it was greasy and was just bad. The caesar salad was small and not impressive. I got the filet mignon and that was decent, my boyfriend got the crab stuffed chicken breast and that was terrible, couldn't even eat it. The dessert was creme brulee, and that was not good, it was like pudding, not a custard consistency. It was just an all around terrible experience and I will not be back.
