Don't expect 5 star meals, but lets face it, we are talking about a country pub in a small town. Just stick to the meals that pubs do well like fish and chips, steak etc. I made the mistake of ordering the duck - it was very tough (overcooked?), served with a nice mash etc and their special sauce - an Asian curry sauce on duck does not work - it should have been a red wine jus or something similar - very generous serve which only a very big eater would get through.

We went for dinner and were very disappointed. Even though mash was on the menu with other dishes they would not swap chips for it. At $20 for schnitzel this seemed extremely unhelpful. This added to the fact that the parmigiana was tasteless. We were not greeted on arrival and dishes were cleared as soon the fork was leaving our mouths. One even before we had finished, again didn't argue as the food was not the highest quality. It certainly felt like they could not get us out of there fast enough. Wished we had bought extra snags and thrown them on the barbie. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

Decent pub style food, long waits for service. A holiday areas only tavern and diner. Good views but over priced on some items. Has a good child section.

The view, location, tavern itself and the food were all excellent. Salt and pepper squid was fresh, light and not oily. The service was ok - not bad but not amazing. Will return in the future. Children did not receive their ice creams and the playroom was geared towards toddlers - not suitable for 6+.

After our terrible and first and it will be the LAST experience at Marion Bay Tavern, my boyfriend and I went here for lunch on the weekend during our trip to Marion Bay. The staff are friendly and attentive, view is beautiful looking out at the ocean and the quality and freshness of the food is outstanding! My boyfriend and I have been going to Marion Bay for over 20 years and since Rhino's Tavern has closed, which is a shame because we loved going there. We will be definetly be back to this gem that's for sure on our next getaway...
