9 guys sitting on the patio on a perfect spring/summer evening. Great beer selection, our servers were on top of it. Almost everyone that ordered food got fish and chips, which looked great. I got the Shepherd Pie and it was delicious.

We love this place so much that we've started coming here weekly. It's a beautiful building, amazing food and it's not over priced like half of Decatur. Can't go wrong with the Marlay House!
