Some joint this is. The food is good but nothing makes up for the fact that the service (with exception to one waiter) and managers are greatly over rated. I recently was in there last week and witnessed our waiter being ripped to shreds by his manager on the floor, but done in a "nice" way. We had this young man before and he was the only reason that we came back. My husband and I heard the waiter being told that this particular night would be his last one serving because of one table claiming to have received poor service. I dont agree with this at all. Our waiter gave us the best service we had ever received and as I said before, he was the reason we came back. The manager was very unprofessional to be doing this on the floor where customers can see. This is something that should have been done in the privacy of an office, away from customer ears. I called back last night to see if the young man was working and to see if he was actually waiting tables still. Sorry to say he is no longer waiting tables, instead he is seating tables. I will not be returning to this restaurant until he is serving again. If you go ask, for Joey he is the best!! Maybe they will see how good he is if people start requesting him.
Tried the new breakfast special. Marie has a new $4.99 breakfast special. The waitress was very nice and brought me a warm blueberry muffin loaf with my coffee. That was really good. Sorry to say, the pancakes did not have much flavor and I did not finish them. My food took 30 minutes to prepare. That seemed quite a bit of time for 2 pancakes, 2 scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, and a side of hash browns, while the restaurant was empty with only 2 other tables occupied. The hash browns were over cooked and were probably hanging around for a while. The waitress brought me new ones at the end of my meal. I have enjoyed going here for years at dinner time. I don't think they have much experience with breakfast. I will come back and try them again.
best marie callenders in the OC.
This restaurant is not only obviously delicious, but very nice. The bar is so nice, too- very classy. All of the employees are very nice and helpful as well. Nothing but good things to say about this restaurant!
Down-home, Midwest-style cooking and a straightforward menu to please the whole family..
Marie Callender's began in the 1940s in Orange County, Calif., as a bakery that specialized in pies. Now, pie is only a slice of this nationwide franchise's offerings. Family-style comfort foods like pot roast, pot pie, tuna melt and country-fried steak as well as pasta, burgers, salads and sandwiches dominate the menu. But, the big draw is still pie: More than 31 freshly-baked varieties are available daily. Whole pies also can be purchased to go.
I Won't Go Back.. it wasn't worthy my time or money..
Beware, this is Marie Callender's Grill restaurant.which means you would be paying $18-$27 per plate..
when we first got there. i asked for happy hour menu, i was told by our waiter it wasn't offered (even thought i was seated in the bar section. and the happy hour menu was posted right by the hostess podium). so from then i knew the waiter didn't want to work. he was just a lazy person..
we never got our corn bread like everyone did. when our meal came, the portions was very small and i was still hungry after dinner. mind that our dinner just cost us $49.00..not including the drinks...the waiter never show up again after he took our order..
so food was not worth the price i paid. I could easily gone next door to the lazy dog cafe and paid less and got really great meal.
the service was the worst ever.
I would never go back to this location.
