Eclectic and easy

A long standing neighbourhood favourite. Casual, cute, good food, good beers, not fussy at all. Good place for a Saturday lunch or afternoon snack and beer. Service at times a bit weak (young and inexperienced) but generally fine.

Food is very creative and tasty. Service always good. Quaint and small but very good. Great place for lunch and a good hang out with friends.

Went for a birthday dinner with family and although the food was decent, the service was more than terrible on a Sunday . The poor attitude of the waitress combined with having to ask for our our orders to be taken, dessert orders , coffee etc. was not the best experience . My partner has fond memories of this cute...

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 everything arrived fresh and scrumptious, and on... 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
