Though slightly more expecsive than chain grocers, Maltese offers fine imported foods and an excellent selection. Two thumbs up.
Awesome store, probably some of the best beef on the bun I've ever had and I also agree freshness and quality is the main priority!!!
the store is allways clean and the staff aew very nice and the owners nice to deal with keep the good work.
INCREDIBLE SUMS IT UP!!!
This is the very best, highest quality meat, cheeses, & other groceries you will find anywhere. The friendliest staff around as well. It's a family business that has been passed down & hopefully will always be around. All stores should be like this!!!
I love this store. The personable owners go out of their way to meet each customer's needs. The food is fantastic, and they make an effort to support local suppliers of cheese and other product.
I love this personable little store. I was introduced to the Maltesies sandwiches last year, and they are awesome. You pick out your favorite bun from the bins by the cash register and carry it to the meat cases in the back. There a friendly and professional employee slices your choice of over 20 normal and exotic sandwich meats and dresses your sandwich to delicious perfection. They also carry a nice selection of fresh meats, salmon and a lot of exotic cheeses. Two thumbs up for Malteses.
I've been hearing about the Maltese Grocery ever since I moved here, and what I heard was right! It's a very friendly little ethnic grocery with lots of interesting stuff you don't see in the big grocery stores. Great butcher counter (I love it when I find good fresh ground beef!). Thumbs up!
Great little store with everything you need to for a great meal. Freshness and quality are always the first priority with this place!
your meat is grrrrrrrrrrrrreat
We have shopped at Maltese Grocery for many years because of the qualtiy of their products and the great service - recently I made a mistake when placing an order and the bill was much higher than anticipated, I spoke to both Dave and Lisa who were incredibly understanding and more than willing to reverse some of the cost. What a wonderful brother/sister team and outstanding customer service I will continue to shop there and refer them to everyone I talk to!
We are from Ottawa and we always pass through Thunder Bay on our way to points west. Ever since we discovered it 4 years ago, it has become essential for us to always stop there to purchase meats, fish and other groceries - or sometimes just to get one of their made-on-the-spot sandwiches. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful.
It's the best between Ottawa and Winnipeg!
The store is incredible, the staff great and Glen, one of the Butcher's there is the best in Thunder Bay!! Kudos to Maltese!!!!
Very good italians sausages
I will drive long distances to go to Maltese. The best deli meat, the best olive and condiment bar, great meats, wonderful sausage, try the double smoked garlic some evening with a bit of good cheese and rye bread - heaven, the list of great food goes on and on because that's what they sell, great food and only great food The quality is exception.. David and Lisa and their staff are great, knowledgeable, courteous, after a while they become like family. This how stores should be local, wonderful well done both in products and in the way staff greet and work with patrons. This stored and the owners and employers are great. Don't missing shopping here. It's one of Thunder Bay's great treasurers!
I have been to Maltese more than a few times. I find it really nice and reminds me of the old Thunder Bay, when we we're a strong community. I think that we should support more of our smaller shops and not always the bigger stores. More sense of community, family and Pride. I love shopping there and my kids, My kids love it when they get a little taste of something new. The Butchers and staff treat everyone that same, like family )
the only place to go if you want quality...fresh...and great servive
We had beef-on-a-bun and it was delicious. BUT, I cannot give it an excellent review because I was sick with a headache for two days afterwards. We were not told that they put MSG in the juice - (we never thought to ask because who would have thought a butcher would do such a thing??). Any chef/cook/person/butcher who can't make something taste good without adding chemicals is not very good at their job.
Best little store in thunder bay, beef on a bun is to die for
They have the best meat in city.friendly staff awesome beef on the bun .
THE BEST BURGERS AND STEAKS YOU WILL EVER HAVE!!!
Best meat in Thunder Bay.Very Couteous staff and friendly even when they are busy beyond belief.Has anyone ever ordered and hind quarter or side of beef from them and is it good.
FYI THERE IS NO MSG IN THE AU JUS.
I MAKE IT AND AM PROUD OF THE PRODUCT I SELL.
SORRY ABOUT YOUR HEADACHE.
What can you say. Good people....Excellent product...All the time.
I don't get there often enough as I live on the other end of town, but when I get there I am never disappointed. And, the service is fabulous! I just called to check for a cut of beef I was looking for and Dave offered to cut it into the pieces I needed for Beef Bourgignon and set it aside to have ready for me. Perfect because I am about 2 hours behind today.
Consistently great food and service. Best steaks in town.
i luv them. Dave and the fam are the best. they treated me and my fam oh so awesome when i kneeded them the most. i could not ask for better friends(who i consider fam) . i really luv that they serve up the best for you. they would if u were their own fam. oh heck , your are all their fam. Hail to the Malteses...luv u guys
A few of the younger staff working behind the counter need to learn about respecting the customers. How can you get mad at me because I asked for $4 worth of deli meat & $3 worth of cheese yet end up with $7 worth of deli meat & $5 of cheese? I told her I asked for $4 & $3 worth, & I end up getting attitude from her for it? Also, one of the meat cutters in the back was too wrapped up in telling a joke to another employee which EVERYONE could hear, & it was a racial joke that I didnt enjoy hearing. Hopefully I never have to deal with these peeps again IF I go back!
Wow, you need to lighten up
the owners are sincere but it is sad to say I was attacked by the butcher today , I go there to be served , and what I got was lip , and told to go else where by the butcher , I was very put out and had the fear that the butcher was going to punch my lights out ,
I was there to pick up a camp order and have spent thousands there in the last 6 weeks

I was there today may 27 , I placed an large order with the owner , when I went to pick it up , I was attacked by the butcher , I dont know why but I tell you I had the fear he was going to punch my lights out
