Tiffiny gave the best service ever! Friendly, helpful and patient. And, the food (Shrimp Scampi and Chianti) was great! Reasonable prices and easy to relax.

Just as good as last year. Our return to Mama s did not disappoint us. The service is still great the waitress friendly. The food was supper. We had to bring some back to the motel. Will eat here again when in the area.

I had the Steamed Clams and pasta in a buttery sauce, bread, and salad with REAL blue cheese dressing. Every bite was savoring. I will eat here again when I return to the area.

Hi Hannaj, Thank you for writing your nice review of our place, and I amvery glad you enjoyed your visit. You are correct, we were unable to keep up with the volume of making our own bread in house so we contacted a bakery to produce our bread with our recipe in a large batches. We are very proud of...

My husband and I stopped at this restaurant for lunch, as we traveled to Destin FL, from Tampa. My husband ordered spaghetti and meatballs, and a tossed salad. Each item was fair. I ordered the Greek flat-bread pizza, which was tasty . The crust was very crisp.

Jrgodman, Owner at Mama's Italian Family Restaurant, responded to this review

Doesn't sound like we quite hit the mark on your visit, "fair" will never be good enough for me. I am changing our long standing Mama's meatball recipe for the better I hope, since my Mama and I have different tastes and I believe it needs updating. If we get the chance to serve you again please let me know... More

We had had shrimp and grits appetizer, and two types of grouper meals. The meals really didn't look very appetizing but were in fact pretty good. She had a salad and I had their tomato bisque. The salad was kind of standard but had fresh cucumber and tomatoes on it. The soup was very good. Both grouper meals were served... More

It is everything in Italian restaurant should be. The food is excellent and plentiful. The host was welcome and congenial. And the price point was perfect. For $25, we had two huge plates of delicious spaghetti, each with three very large well-seasoned meatballs, a copious amount of fresh Parmesan cheese, wonderful bread, and fresh salads. The hot food was very... More
