We eat here everytime we come to Marion. Bruce is a "character" as well as being a great chef. I have always loved every cheesecake I have eaten here. But he also had wonderful free cookies or brownies with each meal. The brownie was awesome. Our party of six all got different foods and we were all... read more

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews on TripAdvisor's #1 rating for Marion. The food was very good! I enjoyed the Triple T -my husband the Bruster burger. Loved that the locals were there helping out - guessing they may have been short wait staff today. Our servers - very nice - I think Bruce even took our order.... More

I eat at Bruce's at least once a month - more often when I can because it never fails to delight my taste buds. Fresh, fun, delicious - I've sampled a lot of the menus but I often watch for the specials I love most. The prices are very fair for the serving sizes and I appeciate that the service... More

Bruce's Is awesome. Wonderful food. Friendly atmosphere. Amazing cheesecake. The only problem with the cheesecake is, it's impossible to pick only one flavor. I recommend the brownie chocolate chunk:)

Small, friendly place with a varied menu. I ordered a burger and it was wonderful. The irregularity of the shape of the meat showed that it was hand patted. Don't know what seasoning was used but it gave a incredible flavor to the meat. The bun was not your standard run if the mill. Nice texture and taste. I got... More

Family visited Bruce's while on Spring Break. We had wanted to go here for several years and were finally able to. Our food was wonderful. Daughter got a BLT that she said was the best she had ever eaten. Hawaiian Turkey Melt was yummy. The turkey was juicy and the other ingredients made the dish. The "Brucester" Burger was fabulous...

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!
