Came here for a Sunday brunch and I am noticing it varies by location. This one in particular is cute. The food is good and the staff is very friendly with the champagne. Arrive early enough to beat the crowd and get your food while it's fresh before everyone comes digging though it. Definitely will be coming back to this... More

I've been going to this location since I was a little kid. I have a lot of memories eating there. I've never seen it crowded, but when I go the food is always comforting and the pie is delicious. I've only ever had positive interactions with the friendly staff. The veggie tacos are a relatively new item and are very... More

Ate breakfast here and the place was empty. It was to my surprise because the food was good and service was great. My wife and I had a day off during the week and decided to stop by and I wasn't disappointed.

Visited after a long time to this location with some friends. We had a great waiter with an actual personality! Good was really good and so was the pie I took home. Prices were reasonable too. I'll be back!

On our LAST visit, we waited for 20 minutes when the restaurant was empty before we left without eating. Restaurant seems to be understaffed and poorly run. Disappointed.

This restaurant is very consistent in its food variety, preparation, presentation and taste. There's never a disappointment in going to Marie Callender's, if you want a nice change of pace, away from all the pretentious 'Fusion Cuisine" all over town. In short, warm, tasty, down home cookin' is traditionally the bill of fair at this location. Their salad bar is... More

Went there on a lark. Food was very good and well presented, the server Auggie was great, the hostess was....well.....obviously miffed that we asked her to clean the dirty table she was seating us at. Then she was really miffed when we asked her to wipe off all the moisture she left on the table after cleaning it. It was... More

Have always enjoyed having a meal or dessert at Marie Calendar's. Our last trip was on a Friday night. Parking was crowded due to all the restaurants in the area but once we were in we got seated right away. We have our favorites - the Chicken Pot Pie, Salad Bar, Chili, Potato Cheese Soup. And don't forget the Corn... More

Marie Callender's is a good place for families, couples or friends lunch/dinner. It is amazing the choice of pie they have, always superb! Price on average, american classic food, nice atmosphere and good buffet for salads. Free parking in front of the restaurant, disable accessible.

We walked in and it took approximately five minutes to find somebody interested in seating us. We ordered three bowls of soup and a Caesar salad and it took over 30 minutes to get our food. When it came time to pay, I had to walk up to the front counter and find somebody willing to take my money and... More
