Marlow’s Tavern features the “Best of the Best” in American tavern fare served in a modern atmosphere. The menu offers a diverse combination of classic dishes that are updated and elevated to a higher level. Marlow’s Tavern has a warm neighborhood yet contemporary feel that is the perfect complement to John Metz’s modern-tavern menu. “We wanted to create an approachable neighborhood spot with Marlow’s Tavern and allow our guests to enjoy great tasting food in a casual and warm environment” say Metz.

A neighborhood feel is also accomplished with an open kitchen that invites diners to observe the chefs at work, communal tables in the bar and large cozy booths as part of the bar feel. Several flat screen plasma TVs are discreetly incorporated, “in-the-round”. Marlow’s is a meeting place for all seasons with spacious patios that are open year round allowing guests to enjoy cocktails and tavern specials under the stars.

Our server, Anthony, was fun, funny, and on top of our order. He did an excellent job taking care of us. We were in the deck area which was much quieter and more enjoyable. Good job all around

This visit is the second time I have been to Marlow’s and ordered the twin medallion steak. First was Lee Vista and now the one on 17/92. I have ordered this in the past and it was great. However, both times have been horrible! I think they have gone to a much cheaper grade of meat. In fact when I was at Lee Vista I sent it back it was so bad. When they brought another one it was the same. My husband took a bite and said it was very tuff and had a lot of fat that was had to cut and stringy. After those 2 visits in a row, I won’t go back anything soon. I told the waiter at the last visit when I was paying the bill that the steak was not good and he should tell the manager. Not sure that happened. It is too bad because I have always enjoyed your restaurants in the past for years. I don’t know when I would go back.

This location is very hit or miss, and seems to have challenges with consistency. This latest visit was a total miss. Server was basically non existent (at least to us, but not the table directly across from us), food was not cooked to order (but we couldnt say anything because the server never returned except to drop off the check). It will be a long time before we go back.

Took a business group to Marlow's Tavern - Winter Park on a Saturday night. Made a reservation for a table of 8 and it was ready when we got there about 20 minutes early. Service was excellent, food was good as it always is. Marlow's Tavern - Winter Park is noisy, and that makes it hard to have conversations in a group of any size. We sat off to the side under the overhang in the main dining room which was a bit better than being out in the main dining area. The group was mainly from out of town and they enjoyed our dinner. I definitely would recommend Marlow's Tavern - Winter Park to others.

I had made a last minute reservation and we were seated almost immediately after we arrived. The restaurant and bar area were packed which is normal for a Saturday night. Noise level was extremely high and it was difficult to have a conversation. The place cleared out around 9:30 and we could finally talk without yelling. Our waiter was great in explaining various items on both food and drink menu. The food was very good and cooked perfectly. Have the fried chickpeas or fried asparagus as side dishes. Only hiccup was my date’s meal was accidentally given to someone else which meant a longer wait for our food. When the waiter came to apologize we told him it was okay because weren’t weren’t in a hurry. The manager came to our table also to apologize and gave us a discount. Great customer service!

The food here is thoughtfully prepared and high quality, without the pretentious stuffiness. Marlow's is a comfortable atmosphere but still a go-to for date night or gathering with friends.

Marlow’s has been fairly consistent with quality food, good service, and lovely atmosphere. During this visit Drew was our server, he was great! Food was good, love their French fries!!! Food prices are good, however, I’ve found drink prices tend to be high.

Initially hubby’s burger was not prepared as he liked it. Waitress whisked it away and fixed the issue. I had the brie fondue, very delicious and of course if it were calorie free, more please! hahahaha... the Cheese Grit cake is delicious also.

We opted for the Sunday buffet brunch with bottomless mimosa add-on. They had some very tasty breakfast items such as scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, chicken nugggets, cheese grits, sausage, ham and breakfast potatoes. I'm not a fan of French toast, so we didn't try that. They also offer made-to-order omelets and Belgian waffles, which we enjoyed very much. The lunch items were fantastic! Smothered pork chops, beer can chicken, green beans with almonds, roasted potatoes and onions and outstanding short ribs on a cheesy polenta. I understand the lunch items change weekly, so we will be back soon to check it out again. The only way to improve this brunch would be to add made-to-order eggs Benedict, lol! Christie was an excellent server, very friendly and helpful.

On New Year’s wait staff mixed up red and white wines in the price fixed menu and vacuumed under table to rush people out. Bad management training of staff.

We were there for a work Christmas Outing, the environment was nice and the set up inside super cute. Although, our waitress was horrible!!! Ask for napkins - eye roll, ask for a straw eye roll. More sauce ?? Forget it sigh and an eye roll. The food is to die for and decent pricing! I would go to this restaurant again but hopefully that waitress isn’t there.

We arrived an hour early for our booking due to previous appointments finishing early and expected to sit at the bar for a drink whilst we waited.

However, the staff quickly offered us a different table and the food and service, particularly from Isaiah (hopefully remembered this correctly) was excellent.

First time visitors from the UK and we will be back. We will also recommend to friends visiting Florida.

Thanks for a wonderful time

This is our sixty-first visit to Marlow's Tavern and it's a go-to place for us. This particular night was super busy due to a private party, but other than that it was lovely. Highly recommended.

Marlow’s is one of our go to places. However this time there must have been someone new making the salads. It was almost like the salad was made in a different bowl and then flipped over into the serving bowl. All chicken, cucumbers and avocados were on the bottom of the bowl. Still tasted good but I had to dig for the food stuff.

Food was fabulous, as always. I would have liked more than 4 scallops for $22 but they were cooked to perfection. The blueberry buck martini was very tasty. My friends were new to the restaurant and were VERY HAPPY and plan on coming back.

Service was lacking. Food took over an hour. Drinks took a half hour. Server (Brielle) seemed like she was always miles away and not very engaging or attentive. We have been here a few times and food unfortunately has decreased in quality.

3 friends met for dinner, which doesn't happen for us often. Staff had made arrangement (per my reservation request) to seat us where one in a foot boot could be wheelchaired in and comfortably seated. We enjoyed our glasses of wine and our meals, as well as the hummus appetizer. Tempura eggplant was not our favorite.

We liked Marlow’s Tavern. The restaurant itself was pretty dark so going there for brunch on a Sunday felt a little weird. Our service was good and the food was good.
