Had dinner here a few times while staying in Marion Bay. Staff very friendly, atmosphere good. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the vegetarian in our group found the menu veggie friendly. Even took the trouble of thanking chef. Would recommend.

The Marion Bay Tavern gets 5 stars from me because it could easily be a lesser restaurant, with a captive customer that has nowhere else to go. But it's great. Big windows with sea views, casual feel, huge bar, pool table, friendly staff. We dined...More
