We went with my partner to this restaurant, I really am not a lover of the meats, but I was blown away wonderfully, it is a suitable place to spend a night for dinner, nice service nice decoration place.

My husband and I stopped here for a change from 'highway' food. We were especially pleased by the variety and quality of the food. Some of their menu items are not available everyday but I had the salmon club and my husband had the smoked chicken tortellini. We can attest that both were delicious and portions were generous. Service too... More

Lets face it. Not too many good restaurants left in the Battle Creek neighborhood anymore. Malias can deliver but lacks a few details every so often. Waiting staff, as I experienced, needs serious improvement. Wished I could have given the establishment a better rating.

Excellent and unique food and great service. Definitely the best in Battle Creek! My husband and I both had a fish/seafood entree and it was well seasoned. Helpful wait staff.

Excellent personal service and the food is outstanding. Never had a bad meal there. I love that they fly in fresh fish to serve on their specials menu. The blue cheese vinaigrette dressing is the best!

I took my husband here for his birthday, largely based on positive reviews. We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and attentive at keeping water glasses full. Portions were very large and we were able to take half our meal home. They have several vegetarian options for both appetizers and main courses. The restaurant is quaint and quiet.

Thank nessren13
