Marlow's Tavern Now Open in Dunwoody

Marlow's Tavern in Dunwoody opened yesterday in Dunwoody.  The place was packed, as expected.  I saw quite a few familiar faces in the booths and at the bar. The crowd was a mix of young and old.  I saw some folks in their early 20's hanging out on the deck, and some seniors sipping whiskey at the bar.  The place is new so it's going to be very busy all week, so have some patience.

A new place to eat and drink is exciting for Dunwoody residents and I know Marlow's will be on the short list for my friends and neighbors.  The menu is more than just bar food and the kids' menu was well accepted by a 9 year-old at my table.  

The outside deck will be very popular once the weather cools down a bit.  I heard Marlow's may be the official Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Club bar for this NFL season - broadcasting all games for the Steeler Nation - excellent choice.  Live music out there will be nice. 

Back to the food - here a little PR piece from Marlow's:

 The newest location of neighborly Marlow's Tavern is sure to win the hearts of Dunwoodians when it opens Tuesday, July 31 at 1317 Dunwoody Village Parkway in a tree-shaded building reminiscent of a Williamsburg tavern. With its gourmet tavern fare, creative cocktails, generous interiors and patio space, and all-around fun atmosphere, the Dunwoody Marlow's is sure to become a regular stop for those who live or work in the top-end Perimeter city. What can the locals start salivating over? Marlow's varied menu packed with categories such as Start, Snack, Share; Crisp, Cool Salads; Tavern Favorites; Classic Tavern Burgers; Big Bar Sandwiches; Kid's Fun Foods and Sweet Stuff. Plates change seasonally, depending on what's fresh and local. Grilled turkey meatloaf, ahi tuna poke, a shrimp and crab nacho plate, and grilled chicken panini using Prestige Farms chicken are several current options. Marlow's extensive beverage menu features American and global wines, handcrafted cocktails and a simple but varied list of beers including local favorites such as SweetWater 420 and Terrapin Rye Pale Ale. Building community has always been important to Marlow's Tavern, both through local non-profit involvement and providing a comfortable, inviting place for guests to meet with big leathery booths, communal tables and plenty of covered patio seating. 
Competition makes everyone better, and having a new option in Dunwoody will keep established businesses on their toes.  The DunwoodyTalk staff dines out a few times a week, as do many other local families.  Marlow's is now in the rotation.

Stop in to Marlow's and have a drink and something to eat and support Dunwoody's newest restaurant.
