“A Taste of Dublin in Atlanta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you are a fan of Irish pubs, this is a don't miss. The food is fabulous with traditional Irish favorites, and the atmosphere can't be beat with the beautiful bar, the Irish signs, and the warm fireplace.

“I love this spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Wonderful place to hangout for a casual good time with friends or family, the Marley always makes me feel at home. If the weather permits, sit on the patio, enjoy people watching while sipping your beer and eating some awesome fish and chips (do not pass on the fish and chips…). The inside is also very nice, with a beautiful mosaic floor at the entrance and wood panels all across. Easy going atmosphere and unpretentious menu with good food; what else one needs in life?

“A great pub with good Irish fare….”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

What a great little place. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Though the place was absolutely packed and the wait staff slammed, the staff was exemplarily. The owners have no problem introducing themselves to newcomers. It’s a nice touch that makes you feel welcome. It’s definitely a locals place that is not only very friendly but also very family oriented. They also know how to pour a “proper pint.” We will definitely be back again on our next visit to see the kids. Keep up the good work. God Bless.

“Far more than just a bit of Ireland in Decatur...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

For a Pub that hits all the high points and does everything very well while always working hard to be even better look no further than The Marlay House in downtown Decatur. In a very competitive market with more than a double handful of great “gastro pubs” the service, food and drink at the Marlay are a trifecta of pleasure. Owner and operated by Dubliners, there’s no doubt the Comers truly understand and have brought a genuine Irish experience to Decatur.

“Excels at mediocrity”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

The patio is nice when the weather is good. The wine list is pedestrian. My burger was forgettable. Nothing that anyone in our party of six had for dinner was worth praising. Much better burgers at Teds up the street.
