We weren't sure what to make of Marbles. We looked up the menu online and thought it sounded decent. Unfortunately it was quite disappointing. They dubbed their restaurant "casual fine dining" which told me I could get gourmet burgers and fancy versions of the meals I love. This was not the case. They should stick to calling it "casual dining"... More

This was not our first visit to Marbles and will not be our last. We always enjoy eating there and find that there really is something on the menu for everyone. My in-laws are somewhat picky and not adventurous when it comes to food and they each found something they thoroughly enjoyed. I love that they have healthy options but... More

Enjoyed our time here, the atmosphere and the food was average to good. However, don't get a booth seat - very awkward seating. Uncomfortable is a generous review. You've all had those seats where the table isn't big enough, with a great gulf between you and your food? Enough said.

Tucked behind the Main Street this venue packs value into 'middle' fine dining! Cool reflective sign above umbrella'd patio only hints at the surprises inside. Frequented by regulars the menu boasts better than average dinner fare. Add to that a cool daily chalk board that always has seasonal meals, meat, chicken, pasta, vegan, pork, you name it, prepared to higher... More

I've been dining at Marbles since it first opened over 20 years ago. While the staff and menu has changed it hasn't lost the charm, the great food or the atmosphere. I works perfectly for a business lunch or an intimate dinner celebration for two. There is great value for the money and it is completely unpretentious. Ask for a... More

Have eaten at Marbles several times over the years. Excellent salads, excellent burgers, excellent desserts. I recently had an entree that cost $19.99 and it came with frozen vegetables. Wasn't too nuts about that. I'm not sure if they cut their own fries, and I don't know if they breaded their own fish for this particular entree. I'd simply ask... More

Went to Marbles on Saturday with a friend, her daughter and mine. Food was good and so was the service. Place was quiet when we got there but it picked up quickly.

We made reservations for a party of 27 for a birthday celebration. Our party included (10) 18 year old volleyball players and parents. The food was great. The service was excellent and timely. With such a large party they had our space reserved and ready for our arrival. It was a BIG success - all the players and parent highly... More
