This restaurant has served customers in the same location for years. Consistently good tasting food at reasonable prices. Lots of competition in the area, but they continue to attract a steady clientele.

salad had zero taste and calamari was mushy sent it back and was still charged for it :( will never return. Server was not responsive to comments and wouldn't reimburse part of the meal even though we told her it was horrible and didn't eat it.

We use to frequent Marbles but with down town construction, we haven't been in a while until tonight when I went to Marbles for dinner with friends. I was very disappointed with the limited menu (both food and beverages) and renovations (very open concept lacking warm setting). Website is NOT up to date, specials and pics of meals for example...

Lamb Burger was AMAZING. Very tasty. Staff was super friendly -- we were with a big group and they took great care of us -- manager was even pitching in to keep us libated and served.

Marbles was always a go-to place but with new management and renovations it has become just average. Have eaten twice since new management and have to say the place seems to have lost it footing - food is average and the ambience it had seems to have disappeared. Too bad.

First visit was to celebrate a birthday. We enjoyed the special of the day of hanger steak' (pretty tasty, best suited to a rare cook) and fish (pickerel) and chips. The fish eaters were able to substitute to smashed potatoes (mashed with skins on). Nice selections of localized beers. Try the made in-house gelato for dessert. Second visit (one week... More
