Review №1

Super friendly and welcoming environment! Everyone was eager to help and keep everyone safe during this pandemic.

Review №2

Marie Calendars is a place I've been going to since I was a kid, their cornbread and honey butter, comfortable and warm atmosphere with patient and welcoming staff are just as I remember them. The food came out steaming hot, fresh and well plated! We didn't have to wait very long either considering they were quite busy at the time.The pumpkin and apply pie we received was absolutely delicious as well, if you haven't tried a Marie Calendars lunch, dinner and pie - then make a stop here and you won't be disappointed!

Review №3

Marie Callender's pies are always a treat. This time was no different. It was the first time we visited a Marie Callender's in Bakersfield and weren't disappointed! During this visit we bought a lemon meringue pie, lemon cheese cake, and a shrimp taco platter. The staff was friendly and had patience answering our questions. Yes, we will go back soon.

Review №4

Stopped by and picked up a Chocolate Silk pie. First time since they reopened.That pie was so Delicious and better than anyone I've gotten before.

Review №5

You never go wrong with Marie Callender's it's always good

Review №6

American food... super yummy. This place is absolutely outstanding. This place has a good feel to it. Feels like a place in Charlotte that I enjoyed visiting.

Review №7

Kind of upset that I wasn't told before I placed my order in any sort of description that my pot pie would be in a container. I prefer the crust of the pot pie. I basically only got the filling. Not to mention they put my pie on top of the pot pie container so when I got home my pie was hot. Banana cream pies should be cold. I'm not happy.

Review №8

Got the Thanksgiving meal for our family. It was very delicious.

Review №9

Wonderful pies and guest service.good parking and easy freeway access.

Review №10

The waiters are polite and fast seating even if it's full

Review №11

My first time back since the remodeling it was a huge improvement. The whole place is more open and well lit. The new seating is a big improvement you no longer sink into the seats if you sit in the booths, new chairs and tables are great. The main thing is the food everything we ordered was great but of course I'll have to go back a few times to try other selections but it was a great improvement so far. And of course the pies were great especially my favorite the key lime pie. Overall I think it's worth trying again.

Review №12

It was ok the Waitress brought me my change back 5.00 dollars short ,she blamed it on the cashier, french frys were over cook all crunchey

Review №13

I've now waited WKS to get a refund, but NOTHING! here is my review (wish I could give ZERO STARS!)....on a home delivery, they sent me MOLDED pie slice! so I contacted email address on corp. site and requested refund on it, only for days to go by without reply...I couldn't call because had no phone min's left at the time. Then after I filed complaint with BBB I FINALLY get reply telling me there is no more 'corp'...all now indep. owned, and that I'm now suppose to phone in my complaint to them! when I already explained the ENTIRE issue via the BBB complaint (as well as in my initial email) all I wanted was the pie $6 refund (which certainly didn't cover the time wasted as well as the embarrassment I went thru when I served that pie to a visitor's child, only to then see the mold when child went to start eating it!). I emailed back a copy of the complaint, and stated again that i had no phone min's to call them with, and again all I needed was a refund of my $6 (and an apology would have been nice!) ....I got reply other than their message on BBB saying "she didn't call us back". Will NEVER set foot in their restaurant again!....No wonder Marie Calender's went bankrupt, and now these indep. places have ZERO Health monitoring! They are SUPPOSE to be in the business of selling quality pies, but obviously have decided to just take OLD EXPIRED PIES, cut them up and sell them as 'entrée sides'! DEPLORABLE! (as is their NON EXISTENT Customer Service....aka: NON SATISFACTION Customer Service - we teach our employees to NOT CARE!)UPDATE : Mid-Oct, I finally received resolution for refund of pie issue (& thank you for the generous refund -I only wished it hadn't of turned into such an ordeal, but appreciate your follow up). will watch reviews and if customer reviews start to go up, will consider being a customer again (just no more pie!).

Review №14

Good food, not too pricey. Unfortunately no salad bar due to covid.

Review №15

First time here. Hard to find a good restaurant open due to COVID. Traveling and needed a place to eat & glad we stopped here. The lunch was good.

Review №16

Their on-line ordering is super easy.

Review №17

My deluxe beef dip had neat that was too thick and gard to chew, and the bun tasted stale. The fries tasted a bit old as well, like the had been sitting. The chocolate silk pie, however, was very good.

Review №18

They were very nice. The food was good. And they gave us no problem when we presented them with a coupon.

Review №19

Awesome service, food and ambiance. Recommend this place for your Sunday brunch. The servers were AWESOME and made sure my coffee was allways full. Thank you Lizz.

Review №20

I came to order my family's 2019 thanksgiving meal. I ordered 1 whole turkey feast. 1 ham feast, and 1 Turkey breast feast. All three come with plenty of sides; enough to feed 16 people. We've been doing this for years and NEVER got a single complain. Good food, good service, and the best part....It's already done. Just heat and serve. Each feast comes with a pie, apple or pumpkin. As long as they offer this service we will use it. Recommended.

Review №21

Took a long time to get a server but once the person came he was excellent. The food was OK but not very hot(quiche). The pie was good. The food at Coconut Joes was much better and the service was fast. C

Review №22

This place is my number one place. Of all restaurants I know I favor it most. I never miss an opportunity to go to this restaurant. when I want to go to a good lunchon, this restaurant comes instantly to my mind. very good and diverse food and a rich menu.great staff members, and good mood. In addition to that, the expence is decent. I sent my friends to this restaurant with pleasure.

Review №32

Had the chicken tortilla soup which was more like a chili than a soup. Cornbread was good. Service was a little slow but very friendly

Review №33

They are not making good efforts to help those that are high risk and trying to minimize contact. You cannot pay over the phone, no curbside pickup, and limited and more pricey with grub hub. Disappointed!

Review №34

Me an my granddaughter enjoyed it... She is the love of my life, so grateful for her, I love being a grandma

Review №35

Review №39

I love this restaurant

Review №40

We waited for 10 minutes for the host to take are name to be put on the waiting list. She was no where to be seen. When she finally came we waited for another 30 minutes to be seated. Well after that. 10 more minutes for the waiter to come and start taking our order for drinks and food. Then after 1 hour from the initial time I walk through the front door I finally got my food. The big upset was after all the plates that they handed out with the corn breath, they where dirty someone did not washed those dishes properly. But the food was great

Review №41

A reliable chain of better than average family type restaurants. This is a place for gourmet burgers and comfort food rather than steak.Marie Callender's pies are the stuff of legend.

Review №42

I'm glad their re-opening this location. My boyfriend & I regretted that we didn't eat there but I purchased my favorite pie there. Marie Callender's has play a big role in my holiday treat the wonderful Lemon cream cheese pie. When they closed I was like I won't be able to have my pie : ( no more. Now that they are re-opening I can. : )

There's so few of these Restaurants left. Thrilled to find this one. Cheerful happy people work here. Food is what I remember, the pie to die for. One of the few places that still make Rhubarb!

Review №73

American food at this spot - excellent. I like it here, excellent food & service.

Review №74

Very patient with the grandkids, good service. I didn't care for the entree I ordered and shared my hubby's meal. I was going to just leave it like that but the waiter insisted I get something else. The replacement meal was wonderful and I wasn't even going to ask.

Great pies as always. Just stopped in for dessert. A decor update might improve customer appeal.

Review №80

. My Favorite place to eat. Service was Great. Food was made how we ordered. We will definitely return

Review №81

This is the best M C in the State of California, always changing and updating the atmosphere with eye appealing photos. The service is extremely good, restraurant is always clean. Clean from the moment you step out of your vehicle. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner as well as a stocked bar where you can watch your sports in a relaxed atmosphere. I make a point to go to M C anywhere I travel in California. Bakers field has the best one so far.

Review №82

American food at this place - super good. Came here on a Saturday. Will surely make a return trip. It has a nice feel to it. Menu is like a place in San Francisco I liked.

Review №83

3 stars because the waitress was great and their drinks pies and appetizers are worth it! Had a breakfast skillet eggs were rubbery why there a43 tater tots I don't know but genuinely tasted like the ones my kids pull out of the freezer! Honestly so disappointed probably won't be back again especially with a ticket for $54 and some food wasn't touched.

Review №87

The food is great but the desert is amazing! One of the best lemon cream cheese pie I'v ever tasted.

Review №88

Nice to visit a Marie Calendars restaurant. Not that many and hard to find ever since company-owned restaurants closed leaving only the franchised ones. Food is still really good and staff was very friendly. Love their pies more than anything else. Too bad all their varieties aren't available in grocery stores. Love the chocolate satin and razzleberry best of all.

Review №89

Buffet was great...loved the omelet & all selections

A consistently good place for family dinner. We can always count on tasty pot pies and fresh cornbread. The staff here is excellent. The salad bar hasn't looked fresh lately, I would recommend ordering a salad from the kitchen.
