Went on a Friday evening and experienced some excellent food on Greek Night menu. Went back Saturday night with a group of 12, also Greek Night, and we all had wonderful dishes with a Greek flair. We totally enjoyed ourselves! The food and service were great!

We tried Marlee's for Dinner and were very disappointed. Based on other people's reviews we were shocked that Marlee's was sooo bad! The place is very shabby and not very clean. Our waitress tried very hard but based on the food she served - it wasn't her fault. Everything was over cooked and tasteless. We would not go back and... More

My wife and I ate at Marlee's diner and after the meal the manager refused to accept our Restaurant.com certificate, telling us that they never signed up with Restaurant.com.And she was quite rude. The probllem is, they had a wealth of information on Restaurant.com's website, including their entire menu, hours of operation, detailed descriptions of available certificate discounts and even...

The husband and I were looking for a reasonably priced place to eat a filling breakfast, found Marlee's on TripAdvisor and definitely scored. It it set up nearly exactly like Denny's and gives the "southern comfort" family vibe. The staff was welcoming and lovely. We ordered breakfast. Our order delivered promptly and accurately... and soooooo delicious. Whatever they put in... More

I always have a great experience at this restaurant. The food and the staff could not be nicer! It's a great place for college students to go! The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is really charming. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

My title is exactly how I felt while eating there. Not to offend anyone from the older generations, but 90% of the people dining looked like they were around 90. The staff looked at us weird when they saw our first timer faces, instead of giving us the warm welcome I expected from the "family" part of the restaurant's name.... More

Well...I'm not sure how not to be offended for so many of our customer's who are older, and come to Marlee's for the homemade food and service. The demographic of customer certainly does change depending on the time and day you come in. If you're here at lunch time, or later on for dinner or on a Greek Night you'll... More

Had breakfast for dinner here. Excellent service, delicious food despite the fact the exterior isn't too inviting! Looks can be deceiving, you know! Will definitely return :)

We have been going here for years. Used to be called George's. Maybe it's because my Dad and Brother were George, but this place uses all 100% good food. No preservatives, everything made from scratch. The soups are excellent!! I go on Thursday for the split pea. Try the Chicken Soup Avgolemono on Sunday!!!! Roy is the host and has... More

We have been patrons of Marlee's (formerly George's) restaurant/diner for over 20 years. The place is family owned and the employees all know us and we know them. It's nice to see the kids of some of the waitresses now working there, continuing the family tradition. They care enough to remember how you like your coffee, what kind of juice... More
