I have come here on and off again in the last few years, and I feel like I'm always mixed on what my final opinion is. The space is quaint. A bit dated, but they made the attempts to render it charming and cozy. The service is always bubbly and friendly. They were one of the first few places to... More

I recently went to Marbles as I was in town for a trade show. I saw that they had a 2 for 1 burger special so I thought that I would give it a try. The restaurant has been recently renovated as they have new owners. The look is rustic and easygoing. The server was very attentive. We ordered a... More

Marbles has been around for even. Its a one off but delightfully so. Good meatie burgers served with changing sides, I often bring friends and clients for a quality, yet modestly, priced lunch.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and were not disappointed. The chef knows what he's doing in the kitchen. While we had hoped to try the quiche, we discovered that it's not offered on Sundays in favour of Eggs Benedict. Since we're not fans of this latter dish, we opted for the veggie quinoa tacos and Mediterranean vegetable... More

Great location and very unique food selection. Great vegetarian options, Pad Thai is always a good choice here. This place is best experienced in the summer on the patio.

Listen, the food was comparable to other like restaurants, no complaints in regards to the food. But at lunch (busy time?) the pace was too slow...people have limited time at lunch typically (those working/business hours). I found it to be an un-apologetically slow.

My friend and I recently tried out Marbles and left pretty disappointed. The menu items themselves sounded great but what we were left with was a stale bland tasting sandwich and a overpriced fish dish with the tiniest very dry fish. Our waitress as well seemed like she would rather be anywhere else other than serving that day. We left... More

We had been to Marbles a number of years back and really enjoyed our experience! Recently, we decided to try it again as we heard they had done some renovations, etc. We were very pleased with the rustic look and feel of the décor. Unfortunately, the food we ordered was of very poor quality for the price point. We order... More

I have been going to Marbles for over 30 years. It has always been a great "go to" restaurant that we could count on for a basic but great meal with friendly staff. I recently went on a Saturday night with my mom. Although, the renovations looks amazing I wish I could say the same regarding our dinning experience. I... More

Ever since I discovered this place, I stopped going to chain restaurants like Symposium down the street. This adorable looking little establishment provides a really uplifting and intimate atmosphere. The menu has enough diversity to suit every taste bud. Even though it offers some pub fare, the setting offers so much more than a pub can. It's never loud or... More
