After leaving the Rockland shopping center around noon, we decided to re-visit Marven’s. We hadn’t been there for years. One thing, the service and portions have not changed a bit. It is CASH only.
Once we were seated, our waiter, Jimmy came by fairly quickly to take our order. We decided to share their Gyro mix plate ($16.75). It consisted of one chicken pita, one Gyro pita, delicious fries and a Greek salad. We almost didn’t finish.
The place was fairly busy but be warned, on the week-ends the lines can get quite large. Enjoy!

By default, Marven’s restaurant is a great eatery, but the quality is not consistent especially on the busy nights! Yesterday, they got our order wrong and the calami were soggy.
It felt like we were eating in a fast food joint!! I feel terrible writing this review, but it is not the first time we have been disappointed in regards to the food! Nevertheless, we will return ....

It has been a while since we visited Marven's (almost two years) and we visited twice in less than two months.

There is always a line up - one would think that this is a good sign.

Our first visit was good - date night without the kids. The wait was long (tables for four and more were seated quicker than us). But the food was good. I had the calamari platter (1/2 portion) and the Greek salad. Both dishes were excellent. Because it has been so long - the food tasted so good! My husband had two pitas (the platter) but the portions are generous and he ended up eating only one.

Note: the pita does not taste as good warmed up.

Next visit was with the kids. The wait was short (good), the fresh bread lightly toasted with butter was a hit (we are easy that way).

The Greek Salads were great, but the Caesar salads - not so much. With the scare on the romaine lettuce, it was just the spring mix tossed with the Caesar dressing - hmmm, not the same.

This time the waiter suggested the Calamari Platter (last time I ordered the salad and calamari separate) - so that was good - thank you! My meal was good, as I expected.

The rest of the family - it was only okay. The fries were nothing special (in fact, they were a bit underdone), the rice was good and the pita - they only had pork - ran out of the chicken) - meh - standard fare, not more, not less.

We were surrounded by families dining out - so it is a popular place.

I would suggest to everyone to give this place a try to make up your own mind.

Fair calamari, very bad octopus, horrible service. Going from downtown MO treating, this restaurant is not worth the trip.
