Marbles is a casual dining restaurant located in Uptown Waterloo, and is one of the city’s longest running restaurants. A great location for meeting up with friends, Marbles’ lunch and dinner menus focus on fresh food and classic cuisine. Their comfort food classics are made with a Marbles twist: corn battered fish and chips with a napa cabbage-dill slaw, crisp chicken wings featuring an 11 spice blend and served with one of Marbles’ signature sauces, and pulled chicken poutine with Yukon and sweet potato fries. Their North American inspired menu also features made-from-scratch soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas, burgers, fish and steak. Finish off your meal with a selection from their extraordinary dessert menu. Marbles is a great place to be social, relax, share a glass of wine or craft beer and enjoy food created with careful attention to detail.



Marbles is located in a former livery stable that was part of Alexander House, a hotel built almost 150 years ago at the corner of King and Allen streets in Uptown Waterloo. Although the hotel was torn down in the 1930’s, the livery stable remained and was home to a number of businesses before becoming a restaurant. The original charm of the building has been maintained: the exposed brick, stained glass and hand-hewn posts have been blended together with modern décor that includes a tin ceiling, barn board and a copper countertop bar, creating a vintage yet comfortable dining experience. During the summer months enjoy a meal on Marbles street side patio.

Marbles is part of the Fat Sparrow Group of restaurants located in Uptown Waterloo, which also includes Nick and Nat’s Uptown 21, Taco Farm, and Harmony Lunch. These four unique restaurants are owned and operated by Nick Benninger, his wife Natalie, and their partners.

Marbles is open for lunch and dinner daily, and offers a full à la carte brunch on weekends. Reservations can be made on line.
