Dear miriamcoates: We just re-opened on June 6th of this year after Hurricane Sandy after a complete redesign and renovation. I am thrilled to hear that you found Maria's staff to be friendly and our food great. Many of our staff from 2012 returned and our chef did as well. It's the people that make Maria's a special place.

I had been to Maria's before Sandy hit and was happy to see that it had reopened. My friend and I arrived a bit early so we sat at the bar and had an appetizer (yummy calamari). My meal (salmon) was more than I could eat at one sitting. I thought it was delicious. My friend is a regular and... More

Dear Merry_vermont: I am so glad your friend brought you to Maria's and you enjoyed your calamari and salmon. Being at the beach, many guests think we are a "tourist" restaurant. While we cater to tourists for sure, we are fortunate to have a strong local following as well. Thank you for your comments and hopefully we will see you... More

Maria's Seaside Cafe is open after suffering devastating damage following Sandy. We've missed all that wonderful food!!!! And the people who work there! Happily, Maria's opened on June 6th and the food is just as wonderful as always. The restaurant/bar is small than it was originally, but the atmosphere and food and drinks are on the mark!!!!

Dear llmjmd: We are definitely back and thank you for returning. It's been a long road back but seeing familiar faces return after a four year hiatus has made it worth while. I tried to bring back as many of the "old" staff as possible, including Chef Rafael. It has made the transition much simpler. Thanks for the great review... More

I waited along time to try Maria's. I heard it was wonderful. The new restaurant is pretty and popular. My husband had a "lemon Chicken" meal and he thought it was wonderful. However, the first 2 items I ordered were not available. I ended up with a Ceasar Salad and Rhode Island Clam Chowder. The salad was your basic. I... More

We have stayed at the Breezeway Resort for about 3 years now on our way to Block Island. Tonight was the first time we had the chance to dine at the new (since Sandy) Maria's Seaside Cafe. We went because the resort is so very well run and Maria's was close...little did we know that we would find a true... More

Tonight my husband and I decided to have a light supper at Maria's. Our meal consisted of a Mexican appetizer and Rhode Island clam chowder. The appetizer was decent, but the chowder was very salty and there were few pieces of clams. However, there were huge pieces of potatoes. Although our server was a very pleasant young lady, we do...

We had a lovely dinner outside in late August. The portions are huge. I was not prepared and had to take food home. I ordered an Arugula salad with pears and two scallops on top. Everything was very fresh and delicious.

Description
Maria's Seasie Cafe has finally re-opened! Our newly designed, casually elegant cafe is more intimate than pre Hurricane Sandy with dining and horse shoe bar indoors plus al-fresco dining on our covered terrace or brick patio. We are very fortunate to have Chef Rafael Rosas and Manager Ursula Kmetz return to Maria's to ensure you'll experience the outstanding food with service and friendliness you remember. We look forward to serving you, John for The Bellone Family
