Stopped in here yesterday during our beer trip, my first visit to Marley’s.
Walking in I instantly realized this place was a little bigger than I thought it would be walking up. Pretty nice space with a decent sized bar with a few TV’s scattered around it, pool table in the back of the bar area. Dining room is a good sized room with boothes on both sides and tables down the middle. We where the only people in the dining room so it felt much bigger than it really is, and I hear it gets pretty packed most nights so I can see it being a little tight on some nights.
Quality seemed to be pretty good. Nice stuff on the walls and most of my beers were in the correct glasses. Can’t comment on the quality of the food as we already had dinner plans but the menu looked pretty good to me. The service was really hit or miss. Our server was really attentive when we first got there but as our group grew from three to six she never came back around once. Our new arrivals had to go up to the bar and get their own beers and once we where ready to leave they had to locate our server for us so we could get the check.
Selection was pretty good. They had over ten beers on, most of which from different styles. I got a Kong Kolsch and it was decent but nothing to write home about. I tried a few samples from some of the others and they were mostly the same. I did enjoy my sample of porter and I was planning on ordering one for myself but that was about the time our server disappeared.
Overall I would say this place is worth the stop but I wouldn’t expect anything earth shattering.

Nice food and above average brewpub beer. The peanut butter ale is a real winner. Overall, a really nice place. I’d go if I lived in the area.

Quiet little place...dim and slightly bkring decor (they are about to change locations) but the bar is comfortable. Service is excellent and friendly. Beer is decent and interesting. Food is pretty good bar fare...housemade chips are tasty.

A nice sized place with a pleasant atmosphere. The service was great and the food excellent but the beers were fairly mediocre. I was happy that they had 10 on tap though. Prices were decent. We had a very nice visit.

My favorite place to eat & drink craft beer. Their IPAs & burgers are amazing, especially the Dog House DIPA. Best wing night in the area, 3 special flavors that change every week. Kid friendly atmosphere, my son loves to go here with me and my wife and he's just under 3 years old, but also a perfect setting for a date night as well. I've had great service everytime I've been there. I can't say anything bad about Marley's in Bloom.

Marley’s is nicely located in downtown Bloomsburg, with street parking fairly easy to locate. We saddled up to the bar for 5th stop of the day, ordered our beers, and took in the atmosphere. Obviously dog lovers, the beers don some interesting names. Their beers are solid, and I hear the food is good, though we had just eaten at Old Forge and did not partake here.

Beautifully remodeled in the middle of downtown Bloomsburg. We had some huge and delicious burgers with monster onion rings and sweet potato fries. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the beers, pretty astounding for a Saturday afternoon. Every beer we had was good especially the porter on nitrogen and one of the IPAs. There was a nice selection of beers on draft, probably eight or nine; with an Octoberfest, a double IPA, and a Pumpkin coming soon. We’ll be back.

This is a small, brand new brewpub I found accidentally while driving through downtown Bloomsburg on my way to Turkey Hill. A very pleasant surprise, actually. They seem to be in full production as there were 10 taps on, 4 regulars and 6 seasonals. I tried 5 of their beers and all but 1 were great (especially the IPA and black IPA). Plenty of unique and interesting styles to choose from. The menu is pretty typical pub fare; I just got the hot pretzels with cheese dipping sauce which were fantastic. A very nice new bar, plenty of seating as well. I have nothing bad to say about this place - they are making great beers and that’s what it’s all about. In response to the previous rater, lots of brewpubs serve their beer in refrigerated beer glasses, both good and bad ones. I used to be bothered by it, but I’ve realized now that it actually doesn’t affect the beer at all in terms of temperature, aroma, or enjoyment. So I don’t hold it against them. I think this place will do very well.

I think as a space Marley’s is a wonderful place. Obviously a lot was invested on the decor to the wood trim to the molding. The bartenders that served were attentive and the tv’s were all turned to the game. The only drawbacks are the food. I ordered a cheeseburger medium well and got a sandwich with a lot of pink in the middle . The beers also need some work. They aren’t bad but I didn’t really have one that stood out. They also need to realize they look like amateurs when they serve beer for refrigerated glasses. It seems a nice addition to the town but if they’re going to survive they need to step their game a couple of notches.
