My husband and I chose Mariani’s as our reception venue as well as the spot for our rehearsal dinner the night before (yes, that’s how good the food is, we wanted it two days in a row) and we loved it! We couldn’t have found a better spot. The inside of the restaurant has a warm and intimate feel, but has plenty of space as well. We were able to seat over 200 people and still had space for a dance floor. Aside from the inside of the building having some amazing features (waterfall, balcony with two grand staircases, etc.) the outside is wonderful as well. Personally, the patio area is my favorite feature. I loved that we were able to put games and activities outside so people were encouraged, aside from the dancing, to stick around and have a great time. The food Mariani’s supplied for the reception was the best I’ve ever had at a reception, and I’ve gotten tons of compliments on it since the big day. The staff members were all extremely nice and helpful throughout the planning process as well as the reception itself. I can’t think of anything I would have changed about the reception. It was incredibly convenient to be able to utilize the in-house decorator as well. Everything about the day was of the highest standard; from the food, to the venue and grounds, to the decorations. I highly recommend Mariani’s Restaurant for any events you have coming up in the future!

Im in love, I absolutely fell head over heel with the atmosphere. I used to have a thing against hush puppies until I tried those at this restaurant, no other place can make them better than Mariani’s and their sauce that comes with it just makes the perfect combo. You can’t complain about the service, its really good, the waitresses are attentive and welcoming, this place is definitely recommended.

Has a wonderfully romantic dinner there with my wife. Atmosphere was very unexpected, but very pleasant… was not expecting the nautical theme. Had great salads and entrees. My wife had a chicken Alfredo that was well above average, and My Ribeye was of excellent quality and cooked very well.

I wish we lived closer, as we would be regular patrons!

My mother and I visited the restaurant last night, because I am looking for a place to hold my wedding reception.  Overall, we were bother extremely impressed with everything from the atmosphere, to the service, to the awesome food.
We got the crab cake appetizer (delicious) and she had the grilled salmon, which was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful.  I had the blackened tilapia and shrimp which was also cooked just right:  done all the way without being chewy or overdone.  We also got the chocolate surprise dessert and it was sweet and rich, perfect to finish off the meal.

This restaurant has fantastic food and is staffed/ run by people who have a genuine passion for their food and also their customers.  I would recommend it to anyone.

I have been living in Laurinburg for a year and have been very disappointed in the lack of nice restaurants to go out to.  We stumbled upon Mariani’s in Pembroke and are very glad we did!  The restaurant has a great atmosphere, friendly employees, and the food was quite tasty! Seriously, the crab cakes with boom boom sauce, you have to try it!!  We took our out of town guests from the city and they loved it too!



Excellent venue for a great meal for two or 200! Mr. Mariani is a true delight and you can tell he highly values every one of his customers!
The new lunch and dinner buffets are tremendous!
Highly recommend!

On Saturday, December 21, 2013, we celebrated our parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary (Lee and Janice) at Mariani’s Restaurant.
The inside of the restaurant was absolutely breath-taking with Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree that was gorgeous.

We had 150 family and friends and still had Room for our DJ and our special surprise entertainer “Elvis”. The food was delicious and the staff was awesome. They were very friendly and helpful and provided everyone with great service.

A special “THANK YOU” goes to Mr. and Mrs. Mariani for allowing us to celebrate in such an elegant and beautiful venue!!

We will cherish our memories of our parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration forever!!!!

May God Always Bless You,

Tammy & Cathy

Amazing venue! You CAN afford the wedding of your dreams! In addition to the romantic outside scenery, your guest will…
