Charming high quality eatery around the corner from King Street

On this visit we were bringing aprox. 20 people in to be fed fairly quickly in between two visitations at a local funeral home. I discussed this ahead of time with the manager, and they were prepared for us. When we arrived, each person still ordered whatever they wanted off the menu, and... read more

While I don't find the food particularly amazing at Marbles, I like the drinks menu, and sipping on the sangria on the patio is a pretty decent way to spend time with friends in the summer.

I had lunch here today with a party of 5. Great variety of items on the chalk board. I had a turkey club wrap, though it was processed slices and cold. I should have asked. The classic burger was just that. Salad instead of fries is $2 more. Fries are fresh and mixed with a few sweet potato ones thrown... More

Went to marbles last this past summer. It was still as good as I had remembered. The burgers are succulent. They would be my suggested fare. The place is not licensed, so it is NOT a beer and burger joint. However, the Ice Cream shakes more than makes up for that!

Marbles has been a Waterloo standard, in this location, going back to the 1970's. It has changed hands several times, and now is, I believe, back with original owners. It has always served good, healthy (or at least attempting to be healthy) food at reasonable prices. Today's experience confirmed that, after our absence of a few years. I had reserved,... More

I have been going to this restaurant since my university days and that is a long time . There have been many changes over the years but some of the old favourites have survived the decades. Never had a bad meal there and have always had a great time.

Wonderful little restaurant tucked in off of King Street in Waterloo. Seems like a different world. Parking is not the greatest, so keep that in mind and drop off the person that can't far in front first. The meals are excellent, great wine pairings, and attentive service. It is a busy little spot, so call ahead. Weekends have specials, all... More

Haven't been to this restaurant in many years. We went to Marbles for lunch on Sunday before attending a Theatre performance of Footloose at the St. Jacobs Playhouse. Great atmosphere, exposed brick walls, soft lighting. Our waitress was very pleasant and suggested hot apple cider when I requested a warm drink. The meal was served in good time. The menu... More

We ate lunch here recently and were very disappointed. I had a chicken wrap that came with fries. I opened the wrap and it had about 2 tablespoons of chicken and mushrooms surrounded by baby spinach. This item was $12.99 on the menu!!! The fries were good. My companions had an opened faced prime rib sandwich which had a good... More

I have easily been going to this restaurant for 20 + years. Went when I was young with my parents and now take my own 3 daughters. This place is virtually their favorite restaurant and has been one of mine for years. I have easily been to this place 3 - 4 hundred times over the years. The permanent menu,... More
