While driving to our family in North Carolina, it was time to stop for lunch. Wanting to find something different then the normal I-40 fast food I googled places to eat and Bruce's popped up first on the list. We are so glad we found this place. The long line waiting for "to go" orders were proud to brag on... More

Very sweet people and the food is awesome!! The pimento cheese is amazing. We bought some to take home and made grilled cheese with it. My husband ordered 'Halloween hangover' cheesecake. Leftover candy in cheesecake. There's love in Bruce's food for sure!

We travel to the high country every year taking the bypass around Marion. This year we decided to meander around and see some towns that we usually don't visit . We arrived in Marion and had a time figuring out where the core of the town was. We found a street in the older part, and only saw people going... More

My Book club meant at Bruce's to have lunch and talk about our book, They gave us a private room to use for as long as we needed it. The food was fresh ( he makes everything daily) and you will find an array of choices. He caters and makes cheesecake.

Bruce's is a small restaurant in downtown Marion that is often packed with guests enjoying delicious foods. While its meals are delicious, its deserts are divine. Think quiche! Think cheesecake (Bruce prepared over two dozen varieties!!' Think happy. Think a bigger belt. Thankfully, as the Vegan in the group, Bruce's home made hummus plate was delicious as well! We will...

I had lunch here with friends recently, and as always, enjoyed it! Bruce and his staff always do a great job preparing homemade food from the freshest ingredients. He always has a daily special, and also at least one quiche of the day and at least one hummus of the day. I've never tried one of his quiches that wasn't... More

Sandwiches good!!!! Side dishes not so good. But thr problem with giving a great rating was the front of house lady with short gray hair. She was put out with every one and every thing. Stated she haf been there 15 years maybe thats why the put up with poor customer service.
