Great little place to eat. I had Bruce`s special Seafood Gumbo. I am going to make that place a regular stop. Hint: He is open from 11:00 to 3:00, wait until after 2:00 you may miss the crowd.

We love good southern hospitality and a comfortably environment. Every time we visit Marion N.C. we HAVE to eat at Bruce's. The food is amazing, the prices are great, and the family atmosphere is second to none. We were down in December this year for New Years and I had the most amazing Brucester wrap....You have to try the Carolina... More

I have read a couple of reviews that I don't understand. The one about not an area coming in being confused as to the wait to be seated and the register area. It is plainly marked with a sign to please wait to be seated. It is common sense to wait in front of the register to pay. Bruce's is... More

Bruce creates extraordinary meals from every day food. My wife loves the Ruben, and the Bruster is my favorite. I do miss the blackened sirloin.

Let me start by saying my family and I have been loyal customers of Bruce's for years, but after today, I doubt I will be back. Today I met some friends with their children for lunch. Before we could tell Barbara (the hostess / waitress / cashier / co-owner) the number in our party, she scolded my friend's son and... More

The food is amazing, I haven't had anything that I didn't like yet. And the "Board of Happiness" is full of delicious wonders every day! So many varieties of cheesecake to choose from, every one of them amazing! Friendly staff, we just love Bruce and Barbara!

A day off and we went to Marion to indulge our curiosity about this Restaurant. Bruce of local TV and Doo-Wop fame greeted us as we came in. We both ordered quesadillas from an intriguing menu. He got the veggie with pasta salad, I ordered the Taco style with a green salad. All the food was fresh and delicious and... More

last couple of times I've visited Bruce's, I have to say I have been disappointed in the service. Never enough people working, rarely get drink refills and forget asking for a go box! Took three friends that had never been there & the rude reply when one asked for a go box of "well when I get a chance' was... More

We love the atmosphere as well as the delicious food at Bruce's.Can't beat the "at home" feeling when talking with owners Bruce and Barbara. The cheesecake is an added bonus!
