Rock Solid Burgers

i have been going to this establishment for a long, long time! 25+ years actually. The burgers are delicious and you can have them your way ! Desserts are good too...that is if you have some room in your tummy afterwards.

I tried to go to Marbles today but to my surprise it was closed for renovations! I have always loved this quaint restaurant and am thrilled that the new owners are investing and renovating. Can't wait to check it out once it's complete!

A large group of friends met for dinner Sunday night. They happily pushed several tables together for us. It's a small restaurant in a converted old house or business with exposed 6x6 beams inside. There are great specials, house & seasonal drinks, reasonably priced delicious food and home made deserts. We'll go back again and again.

Took my mom there for her 59th birthday. Seated immediately, very polite service, waited as long as we needed while we got caught up but were aware when we looked ready to start ordering, explained the specials and all that. Very attentive. I got the grilled steak fucilli with blue cheese cream sauce and mushrooms ($18), so delicious. Big chunks... More

Have been to this restaurant a few times in the past, but nothing to write home about. Service was on par and the food was average.

Never miss an opportunity to eat here when we are in the area. Whether it's a great soup, a Reuben sandwich or a awesome lamb burger with chevre and sweet potato fries, all the food is delicious. Very friendly staff. Charming atmosphere

Always a pleasure to go to Marbles for lunch. Good specials Different than your average lunch menu with tasty alternatives to the regular mundane burger or sandwich Friendly service I wish I could go to this place more often for lunch; the reason I don't is because by the time I leave for lunch and return to work I'm easily...

I loved it! I had the potato-chip crusted pickerel and it was absolutely delicious. The portion size was perfect and everything tasted fresh and not too heavy/greasy. Seasoning was perfect. My boyfriend had the pulled pork sandwich and also really enjoyed it. His fries were a mix of regular and sweet potato - great idea! This restaurant had been recommended... More

Disappointing dinner there recently. Osso Bucco was dry and the daily quiche ( fresh from the freezer) was not hot enough. Used to be a great local spot to dine. Hope they have a comeback.
