I ate the stupidest big breakfast burrito in the world. And what was better...it tasted great! And that wasn't even the biggest thing on the menu! I didn't dare order "Unk's Mess! But it looked amazing at the table near us. And THE BEST THING was a frosting smothered cinnamon roll! The waitresses were friendly, the prices were reasonable and... More

What a great old fashioned diner. Fantastic portion sizes and a great value. Seven of us just finished brunch and all were very satisfied.

The food is fine but we waited over an hour for four breakfasts and the waitress seemed to care less. This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a negative review on a dining experience but this was so frustrating that I would never go back. I have seen on line that this seems to be... More

Ate at this diner twice and had decent breakfasts with good service. Ate there again a month ago. We waited for an hour and a half for 4 breakfasts on a weekday morning, and the diner was not even a quarter full. Our waitress was inattentive, at best. When we noticed that diners who were seated after us had already... More

This place is small and has a really large counter area like a 1950's diner! I saw a lot of what seems to be regulars and the staff seemed to know them...that says something right there! They serve breakfast all day and the breakfast is fantastic! The home fries are amazing and they give you a mountain of them! All... More

Marge's on Rose is a throw back in time with counter seating as well as tables. All were full with customers who have become family as was apparent by all the teasing between the customers and the waitresses. The Pike Fish Fry came on a plater that could not likely held even one more forkful of food! There were four... More

I noticed the wide range in the reviews given so we decided to give Marge's a try. Stopped here for breakfast around 11am on a Friday. The restaurant was not very busy and there plenty of places to sit. It did take about 45 minutes for the two of us to order and be served. The carafe of coffee was... More
