I've often ate at Marlins in Sioux Falls and have always been satisfied. I have only ate at the Mitchell location a couple of times. The last time was for breakfast, whereat, I ordered crispy hashbrowns and received some that were hardly even browned and would more probably be called hashtans. Service was good otherwise

I always like truck stops. You are without question going to get the most bang for your buck. Had breakfast here at least four time in four years. Fast, friendly service. The portion size is huge. Order the belly buster and call r good for the next six to eight hours. After you wake up from you after large breakfast... More

Service was fast and courteous. Food was very good. Say on the display cabinet these huge cinnamon and caramel rolls. Will definitely need to try at my next visit.

Busy truck stop, diner-like but, nicely decorated. Visited on a weekday around 8:30am. Ordered "belly buster" special. Food was fresh and hot, coffee good; the only issue was I didn't get what I ordered. I ordered 2 eggs over hard and emphasized my desire for the eggs to be thoroughly cooked all the way through and also mentioned, "dead" and... More

The 10 oz sirloin was overcooked, the baked potato was under cooked, green beans were rubbery, iced tea was colored water, and the side salad was mostly uneatable. The manager seamed to care about our opinions and that is why they got a rating higher than 0. If we do go back it will just be for breakfast and we... More

We arrived soon after a tour bus and were warned that service may be slow. However, drinks arrived quickly and our dinners did not take overly long to be served. Reasonable priced home cooking type food.....nice change after being "on the road" for several days. Clean bright & cheerful looking restaurant is attached to a gas station. Servers were cheerful...

Was there on a Sunday evening and had the buffet. Soup was scorched in pan, chicken was over cooked and all dried out as was all of the side dishes. Meals coming out of the kitchen looked good. Very pleasant staff.

The waiter was very nice. The food was average. I had pot roast, it was average. My Mom had a hot beef sandwich, it was average. My bf had a BLT, it was good. Nothing bad, nothing great. We were full.

Terrible food. A TV dinner would've been better. I ordered the roast turkey with potatoes & gravy, green beans and a side salad. The potatoes were instant. the green beans were cold and raw. Turkey treated like deli food. Both the lettuce and tomatoes were wilted. I'll never eat here again.

Thank dennystone
