Every Wednesday you will find me, Arleana Waller, your committed Bakersfield Neighborhood Examiner, getting over hump day at a local restaurant, looking to be wowzereekered, by the food, service, atmosphere, something; and of course reporting back to you.
This Wednesday, I went to Marie Calendar to be wowzereekered. From the moment I walked in with my 82 year young bachelor dad. I liked what I saw; the staff was friendly and eager to serve. Since this is one of his favorite restaurants, he choose, but I was happy he did.
Marie Calendar’s is a classic American chain that serves a wide variety of classic “comfort” foods. They are best known for their Famous Pot Pies and corn bread that’s served with real butter that is sweet and tasty. There is also a Salad Bar, with freshly prepared home-style soups. But you have to be sure to leave room for pie, because they are fresh made each morning, and with over 30 handmade varieties, you will find one to love, love, and love.
The environment is definitely more mature, more like a senior citizen restaurant, not many of the customers are of the youthful type, but don’t let that deter you, because the serve is great and the food is of good quality and the desserts are so yummereekca. You can’t go wrong with any of them. Today I had the fresh strawberry pie.
Was I wowed at Marie Calendars – YES! I was wowed by the serving staff, with its strong senior citizen customer base; the staff was patient, accommodating and conversational. I recommend Marie Calendar for the food and service.
