Great patio

This is your standard American food type of place. Food is ok, nothing to write home about but the outdoor patio is wonderful on a nice day. They have little plants and flowers around and umbrellas. It's a great place to enjoy a lovely day.

I keep going back here hoping the service will get better. The beer list is one of the best in Marysville and the menu is decent. Sometimes the service is okay but usually the staff seems more intent on complaining to each other about the cooks or a customer out on the patio (like they are as I write this)... More

We always eat somewhere that is not in our hometown. Old bag of nails was certainly a different type of place. Many outside seats as well as inside. Every day is Friday with all you can eat fish that was so good and Wednesday nights also is all you can eat fan tailed shrimp! This was money well spent!

It's shame Marysville finally gets a nice downtown outdoor patio from a restaurant, but the rest of the establishment is so poor. It started with the slow service everyone mentions, then my wife's salmon from her salad was way under cooked (which they first "forgot"), and my salmon, which was a main $15 entrée, was half the size of her...

We love sitting out on the patio and having dinner. After they first opened everything was great. Excellent wait service, food brought in a timely manner and was way above average. Now, not so much. Waiters are just not trained properly and have not seen the same waiters over the last three visits. Large turnover in staff??? Food took forever... More

The service was horrible! Food was cold when it eventually made it to our table after a hour wait. I will never go back!! Management is lacking.

Very happy to see a wonderful patio area in downtown area. We had late dinner outside and the weather actually cooperated. Love the Old Bag of Nails classics like fish and chips and the FAMOUS Carrot Cake. If you like carrot cake, you MUST try theirs.

My wife and I have ate here several times. Has always been at least average. Management is now concerned with cost and not concerned with quality. Our example: my wife ordered a shrimp and scallop wrap. She received a wrap with 3 shrimp and no scallops. She complained to our waitress. She went to the manager and came back with:... More

Recently visited bag with some businesses associates. No complaints with the meal but I felt wait staff was slow and not very friendly. They were not rude, just not very personable and took there time fulfilling requests. I also felt inside building smelled very musty. Over meal was good!
