We stopped at Mario's based on a recommendation from a local. It was away from the crowds on the boardwalk and we were able to sit right down. The service was friendly, the pizza was decent and the chicken fingers passed the seven-year-old test.

We needed 10 large pizzas for a family reunion and chose Mario's based on TripAdvisor reviews. They were great! We called several hours in advance, and spoke with a delightful guy (perhaps the owner?) who helped us choose which pizzas to order to please a large crowd (varying in age from 5 to 91 years old). We picked it up at the appointed time and it was fresh, hot, and ready to go. The owner greeted us warmly when we arrived and another nice employee offered to help us carry all the pizzas to the car. Everyone at the party raved about the pizza - great selection, great flavor! One was a sicilian deep dish, which was delicious. We also had an eggplant parm pizza - unique! The most popular, as expected, were the cheese, pepperoni, and "garbage" pizzas. We will definitely call Mario's again when we return to Ocean City next year!

There are 2 waitresses handling about 15 tables. We were seated right away but waited over 20 minutes for either one to serve us. After much arm waving one came over and apologized, explaining she didn't know it was her table. Huh? Food is standard italian fare, nothing flashy but well prepared. The waitress make amends by offering us free dessert.

Some of the food here is quite food - the bread for the sandwiches, for example. But they are very disorganized - the kitchen was totally overwhelmed during our visit. They only have one register and they were trying to process takeout orders, making it difficult to pay the check. They need to get a better system in place to handle the volume. Although the interior is remodeled and looks fresh, they need to hang some pictures or otherwise decorate the interior.

We visited here over 4th of July weekend. It was not where we named to go, but we were all sure glad we did. We had a party of 7 for lunch. We were immediately seated. The menu is extensive. Offering include pizza, sandwiches & entrees. The bread is from the Atlantic City Bread Company...so good! The prices are reasonable and they accept credit cards. The service was very attentive and friendly. They truly appreciate your business here. This place is opened year round. I will definitely be back!!
