Marie's has been around since God made dirt, or as far back as I can remember, at least 35 years. Wednesday is fried chicken special a much anticipated day. If you enjoy good home cooking and good burgers, you'll enjoy a relaxing meal here.

This restaurant is always packed in the morning. You can get in but may wait 20 minutes. Loved the food - excellent selection and they give you more than enough to eat. Will definitely return

Small, but Big on great eats. The best fresh made Crab Soup around. Menu is well-rounded to meet almost anyone's taste. Meals are reasonable in price, portions are large. Service is excellent. fishermen love this place. Great eats.

Large breakfast always a pleasure. Huge pancakes and scrapple are a treat with speedy service. The blueberry pancakes are delightful with fresh blueberries. The eggs are always cooked the way that I ordered. Yum yum.

Marie's has been around since I was a kid. It's always a great meal for a great price! The only criticism is the size of the building and the wait for a table because they are so good. I just get my food Togo and avoid the dining room

I've gone here several times, but only when other people were going. I have never had a meal that made me even think about going back. I know people like it, but I can not stand this place. Service is always good but the food just doesn't cut it.

Recommended by a local as the "best local place for breakfast'. We arrived just before lunch and were seated immediately. Within minutes there was a line out the door (just dumb luck on our part). The food was old time home cookin' great, service was wonderful....kinda like being waited on by 'Flo' or 'Alice'!!!

The diner is a local favorite - lines out the door at times, but other times, no waiting. Worth waiting for, however! They are famous for their hearty breakfasts, I recently got the eggs combo with smoked ham - a delicious huge slab of ham steak, with large eggs, and a generous side of delicious homemade fried potatoes. All the... More

Best breakfast I've had in a long time. Everyone else had lunched said the food was great. Conveniently located.

We stopped at this diner simply because everytime we drove past the parking lot was full. Once inside we found the decor to be nothing special at all. We were seated towards the back of the restaurant and cheerfully greeted by the waitress. We ordered the Country Fried Chicken and the Crab Cake basket. The chicken came with a house... More
