The food is very good at this restaurant -- I had the beef bite sandwiches and they were absolutely delicious -- I also loved the sweet potato fries. A must place to eat!

Malibu is known as a place in Bloomington to go when parents are visiting and when a nicer meal is desired. Our last two dinners at Malibu left us underwhelmed - the food was average, the noise level loud and the prices high for value received. On each occasion the wait staff was attentive and helpful, and the menu is... More

My wife and I ate here for our anniversary dinner on a Saturday night. For the weekend they do not take reservations, but we did the 20 min call ahead. When we arrived, we were seated right away. Their complimentary bread was very good, so we used that as our appetizer. My wife and I both got their Alpine Chicken.... More

My family and I ate here on a Friday night. There was a short wait. To me, a wait means it must be good. It was definitely good! Our waiter was great. He was prompt and checked back often. I got the New York strip with shrimp and it was cooked perfectly. We ordered one dessert to share between 3... More

We just returned from another visit to Malibu Grill and, as usual, it does not disappoint.The menu ranges from meat and fish entrees to pasta dishes, pizza, and entree salads. Dinner includes bread with marinara sauce. The food is well-prepared and I can't recall ever being served a mediocre dish. I had one of my favorites this evening--sausage lasagna. The... More

The Malibu Grill has quickly become a family favorite for special events and just hanging out on a weekend night. Service has always been great. Food is excellent. If you are looking for a quality meal with great service on the square, this is definitely the place to go.

Drinks were very good. Ordered New York Strip. Cooked well. More fat on meat then I prefer. But provided a great flavor. Enjoyable visit. Will return.

First let me say that they have a lot of vegetarian options, which I really appreciate. That said, the execution could be improved. They restaurant is tropical themed, why I don't know because that's not the food genre, but ok. Many at the table got steak and there was some unfortunate hair in a couple of dishes, but new plates... More

Sunday night dinner after basketball game. Busy but not packed. Good service and clean. Parking no problem this night. Other nights parking might be tough. Food was good. Hot. Good size portions. We had sandwiches and several people with dinner plates with chicken. Salmon and veggies. We will return. Nice dinner. Priced reasonable.

Thank Rick47172
