If you are a world traveler you will love this eatery. The collection of wooden spoons, a touch of class from the past. The egg salad is prepared fresh daily. Thank you, Cookie! And, let's applaud "Chef Alex" too.

This place was dirty and the people unfriendly. I couldn't recommend this place to anyone to eat. We should of ate at IHOP or even McDonald's rather than enduring a meal here. Owner - you need to deep clean and teach your waitresses to concentrate on being more friendly. Oh, and the grits were cold. :/

Got here at the end of a rush and had to sit at the bar. Turned out to be a great place to sit. Got to talk to the owner while we waited to be helped and the waitresses kept an eye on us. Good food, very filling and awesome service. Glad we turned around when we saw the word... More

The diner comes across as old and grungy. Coffee and food was marginal. Felt dizzy after eating their eggs. Will absolutely not go back.

We at at the bar and watched our breakfast being made on the griddle in front of us. A big dob of pancake batter with sliced bananas and blueberries added while cooking. Yum! The service... More

Had breakfast with family. Waitress was friendly and got all orders right. The portions were generous and the food was very good. Parking is an issue, and getting a table can be a challenge during rush hour. Great place for breakfast.

We've been coming to Marathon for 4 years, and this is the first time we've tried The Wooden Spoon. Not sure why we waited this long! Service was great, food was tasty. Portions were large enough that we were still full when lunch rolled around! The only downside is the size of the seating area. Could be a challenge if... More
