Our Review

Marge’s used to be something of a dump: dark and divey, and one heard tales of cockroach races. Now, after the passing of Marge and her pub, there's Marge’s Still, a Trixified spot with lots of dark wood, retro fixtures, and big-screen TVs showing sports. The food . . . well, if Marge is hauling chains around the place, the crab cakes--with lots of crab and very little filler, accompanied by a lovely slow-burning creamy mustard sauce--must lighten her ectoplasmic load, as would the very tasty sliders in three varieties (meatball, chicken, beef tenderloin). The fried calamari, on the other hand, might just make her moan, and not with pleasure. Tough, heavy and sodden, the whole mess is quite tasteless. The burger came on a very dry roll; the pulled-pork sandwich special tasted of supermarket barbecue sauce rather than smoke. Wine is a bargain, with a markup of only about two times retail, compared to other places where three and four times aren't uncommon; mixed drinks are pricey, though. Service is excellent, attentive, and not a bit pushy. With bit more flavor, this might be a lovely little neighborhood restaurant.

Mixed drinks are pricey, but tucked into the deep residential recesses of Old Town, Marge's is charming, with tall windows letting in soft light in the daytime.
