This was a business dinner. The restaurant is set up for a more casual family style dining. The wait staff was very attentive and came with very good suggestions, from appetizers to menu items. Unfortunately, the food didn't quite live up expectations. Mostly the food was tasteless. No zing. We had the sampler appetizer platter and then several diverse dinners.... More

While visiting with family in Marietta, it was suggested to dine in the vicinity of the heart of Marietta around the old fashion square filled with a variety of shops and restaurants although shops were closed when we arrived for dinner. Shillings is known in the area and maintains a quality of ambiance and choice of food. We were fortunate... More

We popped in for lunch. Again, around 2:00. Seems to be a pattern with us. We started with the mushrooms and onion rings. We asked if they could mix it up and give us both. They happily complied. The mushrooms and onion rings were battered and fried to perfection. We could not find a drop of grease any where. And... More

We went to Shillings for brunch on a Saturday. The service was good however the food took a long time to arrive, was mediocre and badly presented. My wife had their fried chicken in a waffle with home fries (which seemed to be boiled potatoes), I had the Reuben sandwich. The plates did not seem to be very clean -... More

Went for Sunday morning breakfast. My husband ordered corn beef hash because waiter confirmed it was made fresh and not from can. When arrived it was out of can. Waiter apologized and took order off bill. My omelet with crabmeat was very fishy. Did not enjoy. The wait for the mail was way too long. Overall did not enjoy experience... More

This was our final stop for our family reunion 4th of July weekend. They had a wonderful breakfast buffet. Everything was delicious. The only thing that had me down was we had to wait for over an hour or more for them to have everything set up and ready to go. Not good when you have a group with little... More

I love this restaurant. Really its like two separate restaurants. Its on a corner spot with a lovely view of Marietta Square. The downstairs part is a casual restaurant with great salads. Hamburgers and the like. The upstairs is a beautiful restaurant with white tablecloths and a piano player. I even found myself asking for a recipe. I would recommend... More

Our trip to the Square started with a search for good food. Upstairs at Shillings we found a respite with a wonderful table for two overlooking the square and very pleasant piano music harking back to movie music themes from the 1950s up to today. The service was great. But the steak and lobster, and baked chicken breast were not... More

As a native Marietta, Shilling's always been a staple on the Square. I was a little nervous about returning after 20 years from reading the negative reviews. Both times were odd, early afternoon and late night. Both times the restaurant was nearly empty. Both times service and food was excellent. Might not be gourmet, but the French Onion soup is...
