Best Thai food I’ve had in a long time! We were a party of three and ordered three apps and three entrees. Every single bite was delicious! Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The only bummer she that we live two hours away.

They never have the food I want. While we go there for other reasons, if we want to eat, we want what we like on the menu. Also, one of the foods we loved before , is apparently no longer prepared as before so it’s gives us pause on the menu.

About the restaurant
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 Lee Vista, 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.
