Surprises in small town USA

Lakeview Oregon is a small town in southern Oregon. We spent four nights there and enjoyed our meals at Mario's. The staff was very friendly, the food was wonderful. Both the front of the house and the back of the house took great care of us. This is not high end gourmet but they did a great job... read more

I recently booked into a Lakeview motel while on a solo motorcycle road trip. My motel host recommended Mario's as a good and convenient place to walk for dinner. Lakeview is a small town. I expected a small-town restaurant. I was very pleasantly wrong. Mario's is a well orchestrated and sophisticated establishment. The napkins are cloth, and come in a... More

This is the only good dinner house in Lakeview. Mario prepares all the food himself and it is always fresh. Steaks are cooked to perfection. Service is great and all your needs are met immediately. The atmosphere is cozy and the tables are set beautifully with cloth tablecloths and napkins. Very intimate. There is a full service bar, too.

We were in Lakeview overnight and fortunately a hotel employee recommended Mario's for dinner when we asked for a dinner suggestion. What a delightful surprise! The food was fantastic (the homemade buns were the best I have had outside of France), however, it was the service that stole the show. Our waitress was on it. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly without being... More

We were asked if we had reservations and looking into the dining room there was no one. I said no and we were seated. Surprised that when no one is there they act like they are super busy and we need reservations.

This restaurant was recommended by a local motel. Boy, the service, food and ambience was all great! Nothing we had came out of a can. From the homemade soup, to the freshly baked bread, to the fresh vegetables, to the local beef, everything was great. Portions were just right and food came to the table hot. The beer and wine...

Since we were just passing through the area, we had no idea where to stop for dinner. Mario's was one of several restaurants referred by our hotel. Boy, did we luck out! A sweet, charming, old-west kind of decor with very good food and service. I had the Asian Chicken Stir Fry and my husband had the Tempura Shrimp. Everything... More

Too expensive for the quality food they provide, i went once upon a time and got a lemon chicken plate, i was not impressed at all. Im sure the food quality could possibly be better now, however, with how much they charged and for how mediocre the actual product was i think one of the other restaurants in town would... More

If you are looking for a nice place to take someone to dinner in Lakeview, this is where you go. When I used to come here several years ago, it was called the Plush West. The Plush West sign is still over the door, but there is another sign now that says "Marios". I'm not sure if the Plush West... More

Everything about this place is really enjoyable! Steaks were perfect. Stir fry was also very good. Service is friendly and prompt.
