Went here with my family and although the view is nice the food is not very good. I had the burger and it was big but had no flavour whatsoever. My wife had the fish and chips and it was okay. I would go hear for a drink because of the view but not the food.

This place used to be a great place to eat but it as really gone down hill the food is lousy as is service. Don't waste your time & money. Which is to bad because it's a great location but I guess the owner don't care.

Second time going to the old Marian and I really enjoyed it again!! Great atmosphere with an amazing view of the lake. I ordered the fish and chips, next time I will get the burger which is what this place is famous for. Highly recommend for any special occasion or just a casual night out.

The view is what everyone raves about but the food is like any corporate restaurant. Edible but just that. Tastes like cafeteria food prepared by barely trained MacDonald's graduates. Plenty of servers and good service with a smile. The entrance greets you with a tourist store selling nuts and candy as well as other items. This takes away for the... More

We've come the the Old Marina Restaurant for years and I continue to wonder why. The view and restaurant interior are great. However the menu is bland and boring. Their once famous burger is nothing more then meatloaf meat and a bun. Their half chicken dinner tasted like it had been reheated from a batch made days ago. Overall their... More

Lovely atmosphere by the lake especially on a warm summers evening. The service was excellant and the staff very pleasant. The place was really oldy world with a classic Tom Sawyer feel. The food was traditional American Moms home cooking. I had the meat loaf which was excellant with home made Lemon Meringue Pie which was even better. There was... More

Went for dinner and had a great time. The serving staff were friendly and all helped each other to make the customers happy. Our food arrived relatively quickly and it was nice looking out at the lake while eating. My wife ordered the fish and chips, and she was amazed with the plate. The cod was a full fillet from...

Great service. Restaurant was 80% full. Lots of chatter and laughs indicating everyone was enjoying their outing. Sitting on the deck overlooking the lake was a nice change of pace. Decor inside was warm, rustic and friendly. The turkey melt was a downer. Real turkey meat ....nope. Just a couple of slices of processed press-board - Fries were absolutely Fantastic.... More
