When visiting in San Juan Capistrano this is the restaurant that my grandchildren look forward to coming to. The staff are always accomodating. Recently my wife and I had the privilege of having 4 of our grandchildren accompany us to Marie Callender's. The hostess asked if wanted a table or booth. We selected a booth to contain our 2, 4,...

The manager came and apologized and comp us the 2 meals. Our waitress brought... More

I stopped in for breakfast and ordered their Marie Magnificient Six. The waiter Juan surprised me shortly after placing my order with complimentary blueberry banana bread loaf with honeybutter. It was novel and had excellent flavor. Then my order of 2 scrambled eggs, two pancakes, and 2 strips of bacon arrived. It was very tasty and filling. The server Juan... More

I enjoyed my meal but the portion was very small so good if you are on a diet. I think they want to make sure you have room for pie. I had the peach pie it was so good . The wine was excellent .

We have eaten here a number of times, but we are never sure how satisfied we will be with the service and the food quality. This time, the service was not great (strange, given how unbusy it was), but the food quite good. Very nice facility, easy parking a block away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan. Worth... More

We have be going to Marie Callendar's for so long, I can't remember the first time. We have enjoyed family meals and even romantic dates we were young. While their old standby menu items are still acceptable, they can't seem to compete with all of the other and better options. We visited recently the 4th of July out of convenience... More

The food was ok, on par with a Hoss's or Eat n Park. But the sandwich was pretty good. They have a salad bar. And it is pretty reasonably priced.

We ventured here with 4 grandchildren ages 6, 4, 2, and 13 months. The restaurant provides colors, color book which includes a game to occupy little ones waiting for their meal. Booths provide excellent seating to keep little ones herded. Our waitress, Araceli did wonderful job taking care of our needs. The meals, pie, and cookies were enjoyed by all.
