Whether you're looking for a great spot for dinner, a place to grab a quick lunch, or a night of drinks with your friends, Marlow's Tavern is the perfect place for you and your guests! Our restaurant is a great place to get a high quality, made from scratch meal in Waterford Lakes, where our menu includes tavern favorites like our grilled Atlantic salmon and our classic Southern staple of shrimp and grits.

Here at Marlow's, we embrace a relaxed neighborhood feeling. This is a great place where friends, coworkers, and family can come together over a great meal. Marlow's offers classic tavern seating, and a few flat screens to let you enjoy the big game, but that aren't distracting from your company. There's also a patio to welcome you to outdoor dining, where you can enjoy handcrafted cocktails and enjoy some sunshine all at once.

    We came on a Sunday afternoon and Josh provided outstanding service, one would think he was the owner based on his commitment to ensure we had a wonderful experience. There are certain menu items that we always order, and they were stellar and delicious as we expected (fried asparagus, fries, burger, fried okra)! We loved having the brunch menu option! We also explored new items a on the menu and those items didn't completely meet the mark. For example, the grits for the shrimp and grits were in the form of a patty, it would have been better served as traditional cheese grits with the deliciously prepared shrimp. The alternative jalepeno grits were lumpy and cold, so not a great substitute at all. The thai noodles were bland and intended to be served cold, but cold bland noodles didn't hit the mark for us. The lump crab salad was delicious in flavor, however, at the price point, it needs some more veggies/greens/high fiber items added to it as it wasn't sustaining; and more like an appetizer better served with a chip or cracker. Hope this helps!

    Walked I. The host a young gentleman informed us that the kitchen was backed up! I didn’t know how to take this. Do we come in and sit? We made a reservation so decided to just go to the bar! Nicole Gambino was amazing from start to finish! Made amazing drinks, suggested appetizers had the Thai shrimp, had the blue burger, and salmon! She saved the night! Kudos to her! No manager interaction or presence what so ever for been such a small place. But she went above and beyond to make our first time experience a good one!

    Have been a fan of Marlow's for years. Very disappointed when they closed the Winter Park location. We went there the most. Have been to Oveido location and now Waterford Lakes location.

    Server did an excellent job and food was very good, but it took forever for food to come out. It took over an hour. Steak was cooked well done when supposed to be medium. After being in restaurant over 2 hours did not want to spend more time to complain to management. Even without complaining they should have comped our nonalcoholic drinks or appetizer at least with how long the wait was. Have been to Marlow’s before and usually great experience. It was Mother’s Day so hoping it was just an anomaly with having some specialty menu items and being busy, but still not sure I’ll be going back any time soon.

    The food was excellent. However the service was slow. I know it was Mother’s Day one of the busiest days of the year. However our server didn’t make it any better. It was like he was spaced out and not fully present. We had to repeatedly ask for things. He didn’t inform us that the kitchen was backed up or anything. But overall it was a nice day. We kept an open mind that it was a busy day and the kitchen was overwhelmed. We will not hold it against them and will be coming back.

    It was very busy as it was UCF graduation weekend and the speed of service was reflected in that. We expected that though and did not mind. Our server Josh was knowledgeable about a couple food allergies in our party. Allergy friendly options were abundant, although they do not have a dedicated fryer or gluten free buns. Overall we enjoyed our meal very much and would definitely return.

    The server was very helpful in explaining the menu items. The appetizer of shrimp and crab nachos was very good. We also had the chicken carbonara and mahi tacos. Both were excellent. We were on vacation but would visit more often if local.

    The food was delicious. Our server was attentive and kind. We’ve eaten here quite a few times and it has been consistent, feels homey like a neighborhood restaurant but with elevated offerings. Great for a meal or a bite with appetizer and cocktails. (We love the flat breads and the crème brûlée)

    Server was excellent. My compliant with the restaurant every time, they refuse to cook a hamburger med-well to well. Always very pink inside. The concept of their black and blue burger is a great one. Cesar salad just so-so. Seafood nachos different and excellent

    The food is outstanding and many healthy offerings as well as indulgent ones. There was a problem in the kitchen and two of the entrees from our table went to another table so we had to wait 45 min for the other two people to eat. Fortunately we were not in a hurry and the food, when delivered, was very good. They comped the meals without us asking for that which was much appreciated. And we will go back for sure. Something that was troubling was the bathrooms. I waited 15 min for the women’s bathroom and when someone finally emerged, it was a Marlows employee! The bathrooms also were not very clean (which is why I was waiting for the womens.)

    This was our second meal at Marlows and we are now officially big fans. We have sat on the porch both times because we love the quieter and more space environment out there at Waterford Lakes. I have had the steak and blue salad twice (it was so good the first time I could not order anything else!) and my husband had fish the first time and had the chicken stack this time. The chicken stack was wonderful! We love the chick pea fries and were bummed that they were not available due to a supply order delay. Maybe next time!
