Local food at good prices.

Always lots of locals here, and the food is great. Nice soups, salads, and a daily special. Turkey dinner with the works served every Sunday is a real treat. Busy at lunch but lots of tables.

Stopped in here to have some breakfast while in town for a friend's passing. Typical small town restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere, almost too relaxed though, as some of the customers would get up to refill their own coffee? Decent breakfast, but then again it'd be hard to mess up.

The food was excellent and the hostess was very attentive. The coconut cream pie was a bit disappointing, but the meal was satisfying anyway. We enjoyed the personal touch of menus decorated by local school children, and the amusing signs posted around the room.

Seeing all the tourists report on MaryDales thought as a local I should review it. Great food, great service. A place to meet and greet old and new friends. The locals always ready and willing to help the tourists with any local questions they might have. A busy time in the summer at MaryDales but the girls all keep smiling... More

Marydale has the best breakfast!! I look forward to it every time I come to the Bruce. The service has always been good. I love the small town charm of this place. The menus decorated from local children are entertaining!

A classic small-town restaraunt, the food is delicious, and has great value, and the building is adorned with prints of many different places in the community. The restauraunt is highly involved locally, and is a good place to go to find out what to do for the evening.

Small restaurant with good service, good food and great price. We went there for their breakfast special on a lovely Sunday, but the breakfast was surprisingly tasty (toast, potatoes and eggs were well cooked), and they were quite generous with their serving portion.

The food was good and the servings sizes were very good for reasonable prices. The decor is simple and comfortable. The restaurant was busy, with a mix of tourists and locals. Servers seemed to know the locals and remembered their usual choices, which was nice to see. It was very friendly and enjoyable.
