While in Grand Rapids, a friend suggested this little corner restaurant. It turned out to be one of the best restaurant I've been to. Customer service was top notch friendly with suggestions that was unheard of for me. We ordered the Portobello Quesadilla, Sweet Potato Quesadilla, Salmon & Falefel sandwiches that was so tasty I don't know where to begin... More

I have been to Marie Catrib's several times but this is my first visit since becoming vegan. I like the fact that they have many vegan options and not vegan options. This visit we came early around 11:30 and had no wait however I have been here around noon - 12:30 and had a healthy wait - people flock here... More

It's a special day when I take the trip to Marie's! Always get coffee and a Porto. It's by far my favorite restaurant in the area.

Despite her passing, Marie Catrib's legacy continues with her consistently delicious food. I DO miss her walking around with dessert samples, though. Just wish the prices were more reasonable.

What is there to say about Marie's that hasn't already been said? Marie and her family started an incredible restaurant which caters to literally everyone's palette. They make some of the most delicious bakery treats known to man, and the service is never short of friendly, welcoming and kind. Brunch, Lunch or Dinner are always good choices. They have specials...

Marie Catrib is so popular in Grand Rapids, it is casual, friendly and crowded. The menu is healthy natural choices with a flair for Greek recipes. The namesake was always available for comment and compliments. She passed a couple years ago but her sons have carried on her rich tradition.

Went on a Saturday around 11:30 and expected a long wait for a sandwich to go and was surprised to be able to walk right up and place my order- The "Porto" Bella mushroom sandwich is the BEST sandwich in a 100 mile radius bar none !!! Service was incredible and was even offered a piece of coffee cake free... More

I had a hard time deciding what I wanted with so many delicious looking choices on the menu. Definitely ask the wait staff what they recommend. It's always fun to try new and different places to eat. The bread is delicious. The grilled cheese and BLT are both good. This place has some unique menu items. I will definitely go... More

I've eaten at Marie Catrib's several times and won't be going back simply because I've never eaten anything here that I really like. There is something about the spices used in the food that is not to my taste. My last lunch was the butternut squash soup. I was expecting something similar to what I make myself which is very...

You can't get farther away from chain restaurants as Marie Catribs! Fantastic unique food you don't want to miss! Be advised: don't go on Saturdays unless you want to wait for hours. They are still busy on weekdays so go early if you can!
