“A hole in the wall with great wings and massive beers.”
Reviewed 11 December 2010

Mario's Fishbowl is a classic college town eatery. The food is average at best, except for the wings which are some of the best in town. Beer comes in two different sizes, large and extra large. There is a good selection of beer and it comes in frosted goblets. The atmosphere is the best part of this restaurant. Is it located in a tiny brick building, and all of the interior walls are covered in notes left by customers over the years. This is a must visit Morgantown location.

“Legendary”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

Mario's Fishbowl is a legendary place. Just walking in, it seems divey, but when you start looking at all of the clippings on the walls you realize this place is very special. Everyone I've ever known that has lived in Morgantown has a story from Mario's Fishbowl--and even if you're visiting Morgantown you can too. Though beware, the food is exceptionally greasy.

Oh, and you're doing it wrong unless you get a fishbowl of beer or Maddog!

“Yuck!”
Reviewed 28 October 2008

I know this place has a dedicated following, but it gives me the creeps. The food, first of all, is terrible. The cleanliness is worse. The whole place smells musty, at least partly as a result of the handwritten signs have been up for so long that they are yellow and curling. The pinata in the middle of the room is sun-faded to the point that there is practically no color left. Its sole redeeming feature is the hefty-sized glasses of beer served in fishbowl-themed glasses. Just don't touch anything.
