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!
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
