“Excellent Upscale Tavern”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

In late August we enjoyed a delightful evening with family at this Marlow's. The asparagus fries with aioli were a surprising and delightful starter. The shrimp and grits that I had were balanced, properly cooked, and a real winner! The fried grit cake added texture and the buerre blanc was silky and delicious. In fact, we were told that this dish has won awards at local food fairs. Others at the table raved about the tilapia tacos which were generous and tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed the premium wine served by the glass which you don't get in many "taverns". Service was professional, prompt and personal. My only criticism was that the room was very noisey, such that it was difficult to talk across the table. We were fortunate to have a corner booth which helped some, but I found that particular seating to be quite uncomfortable on my bad back.

“A teriffic meal at this local restaurant”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

My husband and i spent the night in Vinings GA on our way back to our homein Sarasota. We found this lively tavern to be a cut above the usual restaurant fare that one finds close to a throughway. The atmosphere was lively ( if not a bit loud) and the patrons appeared to be enjoying themselves greatly. The staff was attentive, and knowledable. the food was fresh and well prepared. the crab cakes were some of the best we have ever tasted !
Prices were reasonable too. Highly recommedn this place for a teriffic meal.

“Laid back date night”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

Marlows has always been one of my absolute favorite places to go eat. The wait staff is super friendly and the food is amazing. My favorite dish is the steak salad. I highly recommend this place to others. Can't wait to go sit on the patio and listen to the live music.

“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

This is a great restaurant - we went to the one near Gwinnett Center. The food and service were both great. Try the chips with blue cheese! Highly recommended!

“Okay place...”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

Food not served quickly. Cold things warm, warm things cold. Service average. Interesting menu for bar so maybe we had a bad day. Cocktails were great. Lots of seating.
