“Best Pub in Decatur!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The best pub in Decatur! You don't need to be a Irish to come to the Marlay House. Even although they do have a great selection of whiskeys and bourbons. But this is also a place that loves beer as much as their customers. They quality of the beer they serve is always excellent with a selection that is equal to other well know establishments in Decatur. And try their food, it is far beyond the traditional and what can be expected Irish menu. Yes, they have sheppard's pie, fish and chips, etc.. on the menu, but there are so many other great items. And the daily dinner special always exceeds expectations!

“I don't get it.”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Outside seating is fun, but the food is nothing special. Go for drinks with friends.

“The Marley House-Great food and beer in a fun atmosphere!”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

As you might expect the highlights were the fish and chips, Irish sausage, and the beer. All three were excellent! They have a great selection of beers on tap, and I believe the entire place was smoke free which was awesome. The night we were there, there was live music and a bad Christmas sweater contest. Seemed like a great pub to bring the family in for a bite, or a place to just hang out for fun. My wife said she wished we lived in Decatur so we could make it our neighborhood/Cheers like bar.

The only downside was we couldn't stay longer since we had tickets to a play.
