I stopped in for lunch at Marieta's East, it was getting later in the afternoon almost 3 pm; however, they gladly offered us the lunch special menu. I had the smothered burrito special the sauce was amazing. All enjoyed their lunch.

We went with some friends for lunch and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. I'm going back this Thursday with some friends from Colorado!

The food is always good and the service is friendly. Nice lunch and dinner menus,but I love the Sunday brunch. Good selection of items with a side of fruit and Champagne too. The bathrooms are clean and the restaurant albeit old is kept clean too.

Other ratings of Marieta's motivated us to go out of our way to try them. We made reservations, but it was unnecessary. The restaurant has a lot of booths and tables so there was plenty of room. Surprisingly, most patrons were gone by 8 pm....More
