“Good Menu, poorly cooked seafood”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

The property is inviting and the service is friendly, efficient, and informal. However, the food is another story. The crab cakes that I had consisted mostly of breading. According to my wife, her boiled scallops had a funny smell. This was the second time we ate here, and there was little improvement. We will avoid this place in the future.

“The reason the Oyster is Crabby is because he ate here”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

This place was pretty dissapointing. The service was downright rude and the quality of the food was not good for the price. If you like deep fried, frozen breaded seafood, and being treated like crap, this place is for you.

“Best Crab soup!”
Reviewed November 5, 2011

Marley's is a small, family owned restaurant in King George, Virginia. It is in the shopping center on Rt 301 near Dahlgren. The Cream of Crab soup is amazing - the right consistency and full of large lumps of blue crab. Plenty of seafood baskets, meals and sandwiches are also available.
