Don't waste your time or money. Went in one night and waited at least 10 minutes while the waitress walked back and forth between the kitchen, bar and other tables and we weren't even offered a menu. We left! Decided to give them a second chance and got overpriced overcooked chicken strips and cold soggy french fries. There aren't many... More

After discovering that everything in Marathon closes at 8pm, my sister and I chose to try the food at Rover's Return.

We had a wonderful experience. The service was great, I do believe the owner of the place waited on us. The food was delicious. We had the Walleye which I felt was appropriately priced for the size of fillet and extras, and it was delicious. The restaurant was clean and decorated nicely. Not a "grill" but more like a cafe....

The atmosphere sucked, the service was even worse. The food was expensive and will not go there again. They try to overcharge and claim they don't know how to use the register. The "so called manager" should not have a job there. He's rude, and clearly does not care about the business. There was no air condition, and the door... More

Food was very tasty but entrees and some other items were overpriced. Check your bill carefully. We were overcharged for two items and had to ask for an adjustment.

The service was slow and we were the only people in the restaurant. The food was okay but not for $15 for a burger, fries and pop (no refills). The server screwed up our prices with no apology. Very rude about and was not even able to use his till properly. Do not go here!!

We love eating at Rover's Return. The food is always good and they have a pretty wide menu to choose from. We have found the service to be great too! :)
