Marilyn's is a small restaurant within the grounds of a local hotel. Eating at Marilyn's is like stepping back in time. The atmosphere is homey and friendly. The food is cooked when you order and is as good as home cooking. The staff are attentive...More

Everything we had was good, especially the ham and eggs breakfast. Coffee was not as good as the Best Western next door but was drinkable.
