This was our first time to Marines. The service was very attention and helpful. They had lots of choices on the menu. The sweet tea was the best. We left full and happy, great way to start the day. Can not wait to go back

Chicken and Waffles great at $11. Chicken tenders were big, moist but not greasy, and nicely seasoned. Waffles were delicious. Our waitress started out great, but sat down to eat just when we were ready to leave. Respect your customer, you'll get better tips.
