sigh, this Place has been a fixture in Riverside for decades. Many memories of the prior remodel when it appeared as if a Country Home. Went for dinner with my Sister, although the restaurant was not as packed as it has been in prior visits, the server even bragged that they were not too busy but, the hold up had... More

I occasionally have lunch here. I have been here a couple of times for dinner. I took my 92 yr. old mother for dinner this Saturday evening (on a rainy/drizzly night) and the place and the parking lot (shared with Market Broiler) was packed. I had to drop her off and park across the street. She was only able to... More

We love going to Marie Callendar's for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Not all on the same day, of course! My husband loves the chicken pot pie. I love the ribs! I meet friends about once a month for breakfast. Great deal during the week! They serve coffee cake (at no charge before you order.) It's so tasty with a cup... More

We went here on Christmas Eve and were expecting Christmas dinner menu, but they did not serve Christmas dinner until Christmas day. It was a little disappointing to us a since my husband called ahead about their Christmas dinner menu and they did not mention clearly that Christmas dinner was only served on Christmas day. Other than this little issue,... More

Went to Marie Callender for Christmas dinner because flew in late the night before. The food is always delicious. It's one of those places that never disappoints. The staff was quick, efficient and super friendly. This restaurant also has a take-out bakery. Yummy!

The specials are worth looking for a good value meal. The cheeseburger will surprise you with how well its prepared. We enjoy eating off the soup & salad bar because its well maintained. We think they have the absolute best vegetable soup. A little hint is to use the salad bowl to get a good portion & it cools down... More

Great dinner meals, good salad bar, delicious pies, speed of service slow, but friendly. Shared parking lot, so it is usually at capacity.

Impressed with their "Crave & Save" value meals at $6-$9. The fish was especially good and for $1.99 you get a slice of pie that is normally $4.79. The meals ordered off of the regular menu were large portions & very good (shrimp pasta, chicken pasta, & pot roast). Not impressed with the lack of attention from our server early... More

Went for soup and salad bar and they did not have taco stuff like the others, you also had to ask for soup? Very disappointed we ordered a cream cheese cake pie and it seemed old.
