The Marley House: "Wonderful Irish Pub" Decatur Restaurant Tip by rexvaughan
Decatur Restaurants: 36 reviews and 83 photos
I haven't spent a lot of time in pubs in Ireland, but this one reminds me of some I found there. I love their dark and heavy wooden booths and bar. Maybe part of it's Irishness is that the owners are from Ireland and have picked a name that links to their Irish heritage. We went for a light dinner one night and ended up sharing nice salad and delicious huge burger. That night their dessert special was a wonderful bread pudding. They have a really nice beer list (I had a Orval Trappist) and a limited but very acceptable wine list. Also, the coffee is Dancing Goats which is wonderful. We have been once for a weekend brunch which was okay, but there are several other places in Decatur with better ones.
A side note: the pub opened originally as the Angel, then closed for a while and reopened as The Grange but had to change names when the organization with the same name challenged the use of the name. The Grange had been a pub they knew back in Ireland but which later became the Marley House. So when they had to change, they went with the Marley. A good place under either name.
