Had not been to a Marie Calendar's in ages. Had the rib specials and the food was o.k. Nothing special! Glass of wine typical low quality but priced accordingly. The service was excellent and very friendly and the food came out promptly. A step up from Denny's but not a lot to recommend.

manager was very attentive to our needs in dealing with a sketchy character out in front of the place. The waiter was scattered but we lived through it!

Came in after a long day on the road, tired and hungry. Got the benefit of arriving at Happy Hour, so the pricing was awesome. Ordered Artichoke Dip, chips and a bowl of Potato Soup. All were quite tasty and the service was excellent. Two thumbs up here and will be back, when in Bakersfield.

I usually go to the one on Oswell, and Tanya is the best waitress in Bakersfield. I also frequent the one on California, and find it just as friendly. We have a group of 5 ladies who go to lunch at least once a month, and Marie Callenders is always the first choice. The prices are so improved and taking... More

We ate here for dinner while traveling through California. The staff was quite friendly, the food was delicious and the prices are quite reasonable. I ordered a special for $10 -- it came with a petite pot pie which was very filling, a salad and a piece of pie! I left very full. My husband had the turkey dinner and... More

Stopped in on a Sunday after church. Service was a bit slow, but the food was good and the pie was fantastic. Convenient to Hwy 99.

had a separate room for this business luncheon, and had one of the best waitresses you could imagine. she worked the room alone and was able to take care of about 30 individuals with drinks their meal and pie for desert. I am sure she had plenty of background help, but Marie Calendars should be proud of this employee. I... More
