Kate’s Diner

I enjoyed it. The food is good. We had a good experience. People were friendly. Coffee was good. Cooked food as ordered. Funky.
We came here for lunch on the Friday after New Years and it was PACKED!!! We couldn't find an open table for 4 people so we walked around in the surrounding antique shops for 10 minutes and came back. Our waitress cleaned the table off and was quick to get our orders and drinks to us. I ordered an olive burger, which, admittedly I had never tried! It was SO simple but delicious!! There was just enough meat on the burger, which was handmade. Then there was some mayo (again just the right amount), and then a good amount of chopped up olives. Being an olive fan I really enjoyed this burger! The fries were also pretty darn good. The soda was served in tiny glasses, which added to the "old diner" feel. The prices were also added to that as well (very reasonable!!). The diner has a really cool feel, with lots of old car memorabilia, Betty Boop items, etc. Cash only! ATM was right next door. (I accidentally ran across the street and around the block hahahaha).
This is a quaint little place that might be considered a quintessential small town diner. It's not very big, but the decor is quite involved. It seems the owners are quite taken with automobiles, racing them and a bit of NASCAR. The food is your standard diner fare. We had breakfast. The portions bordered on American sized and nothing was fancy. What it was was good. Everything was cooked right and not dripping with oil. I was happy to see that my veggie omelet did not come loaded with those nasty canned mushrooms. Those were extra! I did not opt for them. The coffee was kept to an even flow. Staff was friendly and efficient and it was nice to see them interact with what I can only assume were regular locals who made up the customer base. Prices, as one might expect were fairly low, too. I recommend this joint.

Mancino’s Rollo’s Pizza of Marshall

Awesome food!! Subs are delicious! Pizza is the bomb! I've been going here for many years and never had a bad experience
Ordered the Mancino's Pride pizza to-go. Too much cheese I think made for a soggy crust and the canned mushrooms were a disappointment. Would I go again? Probably, but would order something else.
They have some of the best pizza around this area. Service can be a little slow sometimes, so take that into consideration when ordering during busy peak days and times. Great prices!! Cleanliness is average. If we order a pizza, it's always from here.

Charlie’s Grill & BBQ

924 W Hanover St
Marshall, 49068
Reviews:
So sorry they closed. But I did find a new great place for breakfast. The Marshall Broadway Grille on Michigan ave. great food and wonderful service.
Smoked ribs were quite good. I think if it was paired with a different bbq sauce then it would be to die for. Brisket wasn't that special. If it had been smoked it would be a lot better. Pulled pork was dry, but a quick tweak in how much sauce its cooked in would make a huge difference. Mac and cheese was good. Beans were okay. Coleslaw was decent as well. The corn muffin was quite good. I would recommend this restaurant.
My family and I have eaten here s few times. The food is good! If it's your first time here you should order the 3 meat platter to taste their grilled meats. My favorite is the beef brisket It's moist and tender. Wasn't crazy about the ribs.....I didn't care for the spicy rub. It tastes like cinnamon or something like that. I do love their deep fried dill pickles and corn bread. In any case if you leave hungry it's your own fault. Oh and in re to the breakfast menu. They could use a lesson in cooking grits. I've had them and they weren't right. I can show them how it's done.

Beautiful little coffee and tea shop with loose teas and super fresh baked goods. There is a small reading library with novels, self help books and magazines. Unlike most of the shops and restaurants on the main strip, they are open on Sunday's.

115 Restaurant

Reviews:
Great Interstate Diner on Michigan's I-94 Do you plan on driving westbound on I-94, mid-morning back from Detroit or Ann Arbor? Than put "115 Restaurant" as a breakfast stop. My son was recovering from the wedding the night before, he was hungry, but he didn't want another McDonald's, Burger King or fast food place. "Turn here. Get off at exit 115. This is what I want to try." Like father like son I guess :) It's not fancy. This morning it looked more like a nursing home cafeteria (heck, I'm 10 - 15 years from the nursing home myself). But the waitress was older than me, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. "You want the senior citizen special? Sure thing. You don't look that old." Fritz - Double-bacon BLT, french fries, mozzarella sticks. Dad - Biscuits and gravy with two eggs. Honest down home B & G. My wife makes the best B & G in the world so it's hard for a restaurant to compete. But 115 Restaurant does a good job. Mom - A ham salad sandwich. It was just OK. 12 ONION RINGS. My wife said it was odd. Why are they selling "12" onion rings, why that number? Who cares. My wife (whose family ran a restaurant, who makes great food herself) said they were the best home-made onion rings she ever tasted. At the end of breakfast I looked at my son and said, "How about dessert?". He turned to the waitress and asked about dessert. She said: "Honey, the best thing we've got is apple crisp with ice cream smothered in melted caramel sauce and chocolate sauce. If it were me, I'd get that." We did. Fritz ate most of it but let his parents nibble and the humongous dessert. My wife said the dessert was "fabulo". Truck stop ambiance, fantastic onion rings and dessert, good food, friendly service. If you're travelling I-94 through Michigan, I hope you find your way to "115 Restaurant". It will always be a good memory and a story told in my family. And best of all, "like father like son". It's the restaurant I would have chosen if I was 25 years old looking for a friendly truck stop diner.

Applebee’s

Reviews:
Haven't been to an Applebees for a very long time. My wife and I had the 2 for 20 dinner. Includes an appetizer. Yelp check in allowed us to get an additional appetizer for free. We left very satisfied and with money in my pocket. Their Spinach and Artichoke app and their Pretzel app were outstanding. We will be back for sure.
This is the friendliest Applebee's I've ever been in!!! Always polite, knowledgable servers. The food is awesome.
Very good service today for a holiday. Went there for mother's day and didn't have to wait but 5 minutes for a seat. Even though the place was packed full of hungry mothers we got our food in the normal time. The staff was very friendly and kept the drinks coming. Food was prepared well and hot. We had a Yelp bonus upon checking in and received a bar snack for free for checking in. We got the fried green beans and they were excellent. When we got our bill we noticed that they charged us for the bar snack but when brought to their attention they promptly removed the charge and apologized. Great mothers day dinner and we all enjoyed ourselves.

Pastrami Joe’s

105 N Jefferson St
Marshall, 49068
Reviews:
Meat, where have you gone?! When this place first opened it brought tears (not really) to my eyes in remembrance of my beloved first experiences at Zingerman's in Ann Arbor. Those great sandwiches on great bread.... mmmmmm I can still taste them. But after my last visit (last week) I was left heavy hearted with the disappointment of a meatloaf sandwich that contained a wafer of meat no larger than a White Castle slider! The pound of lettuce topping the wafer did not fool me into thinking this was a hefty sandwich! What have you done?! (FYI my last couple visits to Zingerman's left me in the same heartbroken state). Gone are the days of a good deli sandwich? Say it ain't so!
I came here because the locals tell me it's the best deli in town. Boy was the bar set low. For those from Cleveland, this is no Slyman's. Pastrami Joe's sandwiches are not much more than a snack. I find myself unsatisfied. The one thing the got going for them is that nobody else opened a decent deli in Marshall.
I came here recently from out of town and we call it "Gristle Joe's" because it is very expensive, my pastrami sandwich was all fat and it was really gross and we were overcharged for a meal twice. We won't be going back.

Louie’s Bakery

Reviews:
Absolutely the best sweet rolls and pastries.
The fact that they accept credit cards through Square, but charge $5 for using it is highway robbery. I wouldn't mind them charging me the less than 3% fee that Square charges them, but $5 to purchase a donut?! Nope. Honestly, Sweetwater is 10 minutes away, open 24/7, takes credit cards with NO FEE, and has better donuts. Bonus? The staff at Sweetwater is always friendly. Can't say the same for Louie's.
The Best nut rolls ever! They are closed during some holidays so good luck getting your hands on some.

Schuler’s Restaurant & Pub

115 S Eagle St
Marshall, 49068
Reviews:
Loved the old world decor and charm of Schulers building. The historical feel gives it character unlike the cookie cutter new age no charm neutered restaurants so popular now. I got the turkey potpie; hubby fish and chips. That potpie was the best i've ever eaten. Hub wished he had also order it, just because he is a potpie fan not because the fish and chips were not as good. Fries/chips were those wonderful coated but not coated with seasoning kind. Just can't describe them properly. Portion sizes could feed two, and this was lunch. $15 for most entrees. we both were somewhat full from the cracker sticks and cheese, then the rye hot rolls and butter. but the waiter kept bring more crackers and cheese. In fact he gave us a large takeout box full of more plus 2 more cheeses just because we ask if he had lids for the two containers of cheese untouched (after the two we ate.!) guess he was working for a better tip; and it was much deserved cause he did put lots of effort into keeping us fed and watered. Dessert list was fantastic but we were too full to order. Definitely would return, happily!
Stopped in here for lunch after a meeting in the area, sat up at the bar. Our bartender was great, very friendly and she offered some great recommendations for lunch. I decided to go with the fish and chips which included an awesome house-made tartar sauce. The food was great and I am definitely coming back here when I return. The restaurant has a warm, comfortable feel with all of the dark wood at the bar and at the tables. Great service, great atmosphere, great food!
We met up in Marshall with my boyfriend's grandparents on our trip back to Tennessee. The meal at Schuler's was SO good. I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup with house made potato chips. I could have done without the chips (they were really hard), but the soup and grilled cheese was delish! Our server had a very unique personality too, which we love to see. Who wants a cookie cutter server??

Cornwell’s Turkeyville

18935 15 1/2 Mile Rd
Marshall, 49068
Reviews:
I love the Turkey Farm! I give it five stars for character and things to see and do. I think the cafeteria style eating is quirky and quaint. I love the fact that they sell beer, and the desserts alone are worth the drive. After lunch, you have to have ice cream, fudge, caramel corn, or any number of other goodies sold in the building. And you can't forget to walk through the store and buy some bread or just look around for the experience. That doesn't include anything that might be going on outside! Turkeyville is always a good time! My boyfriend and I went on one of our first dates there and had a blast! Of course, it's great for families, too!
It has kind of the flavor of a 'Cracker Barrel' restaurant, with a very nice gift shop. I was not too impressed with the food, as it has kind of a cafeteria feel to it and the main dish is turkey. I understand it is a favorite for locals on Thanksgiving that do not want to cook that day. They have a great ice cream shop, and I enjoyed that. The grounds are lots of fun for kids, but the little stores outside of the main building were not very special. There is sometimes a flea market on the grounds, and that is sometimes a great place to visit and spend a few hours. The main building itself has a dinner theatre, which I have never attended, but I have heard that it is a nice experience.
Really not too bad, considering what the place is. I remember going here ever since I was a litttttle tot, and to be honest, it all looks the same. Our family would usually find our way over during art and craft fairs in which the place would be hoppin' with people and tons of crafts. I would always enjoy going over to the gift shop, eating lunch, playing in the arcade, looking at the model trains inside the shop, and riding the little train around. I'm not sure if I'm disappointed or not that it all looks the same. Some areas look a bit run down, including the inside of the restaurant that has definitely gotten itself stuck in some time zone that isn't right now. But, for a family restaurant that's built on tradition, what can you expect? The ice cream shop and arcade are essentially the same and it the tunes they were STILL playing in the arcade immediately took me back to being 10 years old. Now to the food and service, it was A-OK (as the 3 stars would say). I had a cup of turkey noodle soup which was piping hot with big homemade noodles and big chunks of turkey, although it could've used a good dose of salt. I also had a half turkey sandwich with it and that idea seemed to throw all of the servers off. I asked for a simple turkey sandwich on regular bread with lettuce and tomato, and it first came out as turkey on regular bread (no veggies). I asked for them to be added and they passed them back, only adding lettuce that time. The sandwich went back again for the tomato and I finally obtained the sandwich I first requested. Overall the flavor of the turkey was great but it was just downright dry, sadly. The service was friendly and apologetic about the multiple mix-ups of my traveling sandwich, so that made up for it. Although coming from a foodservice background with some safety/sanitation in mind, it did bother me that the same person who was handling money was also heavily handling my sandwich plate as it traveled back and forth without changing gloves or washing hands.
