Mariann Restaurant's menu of comfort fare coddles stomachs with traditional fried entrées, savory burgers, and thick steaks. The appetizer combo showcases a trio of crispy potato skins, cheese sticks, and chicken tenders, served in three-part harmony. Dinner entrées hoist heftier portions, including the rib-eye sandwich—a 6-ounce steak squeezed into a hoagie bun oozing with swiss cheese, grilled mushrooms, and onions. Thick toast provides a sturdy base for the texas chili-cheddar burger's brewing bits surrounded by a moat of homemade chips, whereas baked or fried North Atlantic cod swims through a sea of sides including delectable hush puppies and a colorful kaleidoscope of veggies. Mariann's drink options moisten mouths made dry from whistling at good-looking food, and include imported beers, domestic brews, and international wines interested in learning the taste buds' native tongue.
Diner-inspired décor sheathes guests in hunter-green hues, accented by brick-encased bars and multicolored fabric booths, as drop down chandeliers spill pools of luminance across the deep red tiling. Despite its modern amenities, such as free WiFi, Mariann's stays true to its retro roots with gumball machines and menu boards that roller skate during their breaks.
Counter seats run along the kitchen at Mariann's Restaurant, allowing their occupants to nurse cups of coffee while watching the kitchen crew fill orders from handwritten tickets. Since 1969, the classic diner has put on its coffee pots at 6 a.m. and warmed breakfast plates such as biscuits and gravy or rib-eye steak and eggs. As the day goes on, the Mariann crew prepares housemade soups to accompany sandwiches during the lunch rush, as well as dinner plates such as center-cut pork chops, certified Angus steaks, and southern fried chicken. In lieu of an animatronic Johnny Carson, Mariann's Restaurant prepares fresh-baked blackberry and peach cobbler as the ideal accompaniment to late-night discussions in a springy booth.
