Our family has eaten at Wooden Spoon since the early 80’s. We are now taking a third generation and it is a highlight of our annual trips to Marathon. Everyone has to experience the sausage gravy and biscuits!

This is just a shack with good food. Opens at 5am. You get a lot of food, and it is good.
I agree with the other reviewer that the place needs a good cleaning (don't get me started on that subject). In Chicago you would call it a greasey spoon. All the waitresses had great personalities.

This place needs a good cleaning. Someone needs to come in and scrub the floors, the air vents, the stools, the walls by the stools, etc. The food wasn't bad, however the bacon was pre done so it wasn't cooked fresh to order like their sign says. And the bathroom had no soap. How does the cook wash his hands mmmnn just make me think. Oh and the bathroom was outside around the back! I think the health department needs to stop by.

First off I never leave bad reviews for a business unless I feel it us completely justified. Our server was extremely rude and we felt like we were an inconvenience to them just for dining in. It sounded like she was rushing people to get to a birthday party. The food was ok and it came out quick but for the price and obviously the service there are much better options all over Marathon. We won't be back
