    We were able to get a table outside. The space was partially enclosed so it was quiet. The food and drinks were outstanding. They have a bottomless Mimosa deal at $25.

    Food is great, came hungry and left full. Unique menu and combination of things but it is delicious. My fiancé highly encouraged the antique taco sandwich to stay on the menu .

    0/5 for water(this specific time) They seemed short staffed, looked like maybe two servers for entire left side, beyond burger took, no lie, like 40 minutes to arrive. Took another 20 to pay the bill. The food was bomb as always tho

    It was our first time going there since we live so close and it was such a fun atmosphere! The staff was extremely friendly and it was such a great vibe to catch up with friends, watch sports, or have a date night! The burger was delicious and I can’t wait to go back when it’s nicer weather to enjoy their outdoor seating!

    The food was very good comfort food ! I loved my Turkey Meatloaf ! The version of coconut cream pie was interesting and unexpected . We sat by the door in the bar very chilly every time someone entered ! Our waiter was pleasant and friendly and service was very good ! I would definitely advise friends to visit .. and want to return to try a vodka sour!

    Going out in the area, decided to try a restaurant haven’t been to; reviews were great. Reserved online, even called to let restaurant know we would be late due to traffic, no issues there. Marvin crew sounded accommodating. Nice little corner restaurant. Ambiance was loud. FOOD WAS AMAZING! What a gem! Ordered the skirt steak, actually loved that they cut up the steak and was cooked as preferred 👌🏻 peppercorn sauce was delightful! So flavorful! Jerk cauliflower wings debuted this weekend and were delicious! Topped off the night with a refreshing upside down deconstructed coconut pie. It was like puréed coconut and whip with mango and toasted coconut flakes, served in a bowl- easily shareable! Definitely will be coming back for the delicious food! More to try 🙌🏻

    Checked out Marvin’s for my wife’s birthday. It was just us two. I had the skirt steak with burnt onions (phenomenal), the broccolini (probably the best I’ve ever had), the bacon Brussels (amazing), and a salad. My wife had the tri-tip sandwich (the only ‘okay’ thing we had) along with fries. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal! Service was great, cool atmosphere. It was perfect! Can’t wait to come back next month for my birthday!

    Great wait staff and the food was good. My first experience there in spring 2021 was very average with average or below average service. I’d intended not to return, but I did today because the restaurant wasn’t full while others nearby were full. I’m glad I gave it a second chance.

    Loved visiting Marvin’s. Our group of four was seated promptly, they had a bunch of tasty options for dinner and everyone loved their food- esp the pork sandwich and the whipped potatoes. We sat in the lounge area, bartender was really attentive. Would recommend for a laid back Saturday dinner and drinks.

    We had a table of 7 and our server was very attentive. The food was very good, particularly the turkey meatloaf and the burger. The music was a little loud, and I like good music. There were a few times that we couldn't hear each other talk. Would definitely go back!
