A wonderful retro décor inside and across the road from the marina and Tawas Bay. Anytime we have stopped at Marion's the service has been great regardless how busy they are, and they can get really busy at times during the summer. Good selection of...More

Great variety of ice cream flavors, good service, and generous portions. Our family craved this treat so much that we splurged on HUGE waffle cones daily during our week long stay in Tawas City. It has great "throw back" creamery shop decor. Many other food...More
