Food was very good...lunch specials are terrific.
amazing service! the restaurant had a very homey vibe to it. it was pretty loud inside and it was difficult to talk, but otherwise amazing!
Love it! Was the perfect place to spend a birthday!
The noise level was horrific.
Food was ok but after waiting a half hour for the fried chicken (we were told about the wait) it should not have been dry. Told staff and the least they could have done was offer a dessert. The jambalaya tasted fine but looked like mush
In addition, napkins on the floor and an empty Gatorade bottle there as well.
Not for us although I know people who love it.
Bring your ear plugs if it’s a Saturday night. We had a 7:30 reservation. Had to wait but got table for 4.
We’ve been coming here since Mara’s opened. We have never been disappointed. It’s Soft Shell crab season their Po’Boy is delicious. The char broiled Oysters are beyond wonderful.
U had the catfish encrusted with pecans on top of mashed sweet potatoes. It was delicious! Done perfectly! Service was excellent! hats off to the chef!
Personable staff who were familiar and forthcoming about the menu.
Owner was pleasant,involved and approachable.
We will definitely return there.
Food was outstanding and service was incredible! Had fresh crawfish, alligator bites, baby back ribs, and hot chicken sandwich everything was very good.
The food here is consistently good and the service is always excellent. They are terrific about letting you taste any wine that your are interested in trying. My husband tried two wines before deciding on his choice and we were both happy with our choices. Most of the food is has some spice but if you let your server know what level of spice you are comfortable with, they will steer you in the right direction.
Mara's has some of the best food on Long Island. They also have by far the best customer service, true southern hospitality.
Great food, great service with a fair price. Sometimes wish the restaurant was bigger. Mara always makes you feel at home.
It's my 2nd time there, i went once for a lunch and then a dinner before a Westbury show ( which is a short 10 minute drive). the menu is rocking with plenty of options, with plenty of variety that makes you step out of a normal dining comfort zone. You really have to appreciate the tell Chef and owner pride. Our server Lauren was A+friendly and Mara the owner made triple stop bye to make sure we were happy. I wish more places had this recipe for service, lip smacking good food and making sure the patrons are satisfied. Great job all around, thanks.
We love mara’s southern kitchen, the stuffed crawfish bread is outstanding! The spicy artichoke among many other delicious food you will find at Mara’s. They treat you like family. Oh and I can’t forget the many different cocktails and drinks.
Very good food and an extensive selection of bourbons. A little pricey and noisy. Friendly and mostly attentive staff.
Fabulous Cajun cooking Etoufe and Jambalya and grilled Oysters were to die for
Pre Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Family dinner, as always, food is authentic Cajun style, craw fish we’re outstanding, Hurricanes and desert were fantastic. Erica takes care of us every year!
It was our first time. We really enjoyed it. Very friendly accommodating staff. Mara herself came to our table and spoke to us. Impressed!
Jambalaya was very dry and lacked spice (heat) it was bland .
The Gumbo was loaded with meat however it was bland.
Food and Service were excellent. Great choices if food and beverage. Consistent over many visits. A very special place that I recommend.
Wonderful. I felt like family going there for my 1st time. Mara herself works very hard to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy. Thank you.
Always a good meal in a relaxed environment. Love the new menu!
We enjoyed our time at Mara’s . The food was good and plentiful
Outstanding selection of bourbons and whiskeys
I've eaten here many times and had excellent meals, but last night was not one of them.
Extensive drink menu. The food was delicious. Impeccable service. Will definitely be back.
Great food, excellent service, fun place, good selection of dishes. Love it we will be back! Thank you for a fun valentines night! Perfect! Great 🦞 crawfish! Ribs hush puppies!
We just loved this place!
The food is exceptional. Homemade and rich with flavor. The drinks are good too. Very helpful and friendly service and we plan to return soon!
Love Mara’s! Mara and her staff always make you feel welcome and special! Wonderful menu with plenty of flavorful options. Staff is superb at suggesting beverage pairing and the homemade desserts are fabulous! We typically don’t order dessert when dining out, but will make an exception here. The calories are worth it!
It was sat so server wasn’t Mara. Friendly more to other tables and bar than us. Hush puppies a bit over fried, onion rings not to my taste, burger was good, shrimp po boy was good.
Mara's has always been fresh home made food, reasonably priced with fantastic service. Always great
Service and food were great Will definitely be back
One of our favorite Restaurants.The food is delicious!The staff is friendly & courteous. Large selection of Wine,drinks and spirits. I would highly recommend Mara’s.
I have always received a delightful meal at a most reasonable price. Mara will offer great suggestions if asked; and when I have, I have never been disappointed!!
I've never been disappointed by a meal at Mara's. The char-grilled oysters were delicious, as was the rest of the meal. My major problem is leaving room for dessert and skipping it would be unthinkable!
Delicious as usual.
Had dinner with 2 other couples. The staff was super attentive and answered every question we had. The food was delicious and all the good came in a timely manner. Would highly recommend
Must have been an off nite. Very busy with catering orders before thanksgiving. Took a long time for dinner to come. Dishes were tasty but cold. Staff tried hard but they might have short help
Our favorite place! Food is always good. The staff is warm and welcoming. Great place to go for good food in a casual environment!
Great food at a great price
