When I moved to Marion 7 years ago, a friend highly recommended this restaurant as one of the best in Marion and boy was he correct. I enjoyed it so much, I chose Bruce's as the first restaurant that my wife and I ever ate on our very first date. Bruce's food is always fresh and original and he is... More

It's a good thing that the food is really good because the old lady that checks you out at the front is rude and not friendly. bruce himself is really nice. Every time I have been there she has been the same every time unpleasant and unhappy

Another family owned restaurant where friends and family gather for a good lunch! Cheesecakes are a must for dessert and a visit with Barbara and Bruce. I recommend the grilled cheese and tomato bisque or Bruces Burger. You can't go wrong!

It was one of those cold and rainy weekdays and I was taking a break from my job. I don't live in the area so check with tripadvisor and came up with this restaurant. Since I was by myself I ate and the counter, which turned out to be a good call because I could watch the staff work. The... More

Stopped at Bruce's for lunch and upon entering saw a sign board with one of the day's specials listed as the Tomato/spinach cobbler. Couldn't imagine what type of desert it would be and quickly dismissed it. Once seated, Bruce quickly appeared to greet us and explain items available and the details of the cobbler. It wasn't some weird type of... More

Me and my wife finally got a chance to visit Bruce's after years of people recommending it. I'm definitely what you would describe as a "foodie" even tho most people say I fall somewhere between chef Robert Irvine and Gordon Ramsey lol. First off if you've never been to Marion, what the heck are you doing with your life? This... More
