Local Flavor

Marietta’s tavern owners have been pouring drinks and serving hearty meals to hungry travelers since the 18th century. The first liquor license in the Northwest Territory was issued here in 1789, less than a year after the town’s founding. We still have it. It’s hanging behind the cash register at the Marietta Wine Cellars on Second Street.

We enjoy welcoming people to town with a glass of cheer. Some of our bars are upscale; others are casual. The Marietta Brewing Company and The Galley are in beautifully restored historic buildings in the heart of downtown. If you happen to be on the west side, you can’t miss with Spagna’s Italian Restaurant or the Harmar Tavern. All are warm and welcoming places and they serve delicious food to go along with your favorite beverages.

What are you in the mood for? Spaghetti and homemade meatballs? Fried chicken and mashed potatoes? How about a beef burrito smothered with cheese? Perfectly grilled scallops? Shish kabob and tabbouleh? No problem. Coming right up!

The Buckley House Restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine in a lovely Victorian House. The menu is interesting, the food fabulous and the back deck is the most elegant place in town for lunch or dinner.

The Levee House on the banks of the Ohio
River features great food and an unbeatable view. In addition to offering daily lunch and dinner specials, The Levee House is open for Sunday brunch.

daVinci’s just across the bridge in friendly Williamstown, WV is a large and very popular restaurant that specializes in Italian and American cuisine. They also offer daily lunch and dinner specials.

If casual and cold beer sounds good, drop in to Over the Moon Pub & Pizza or The Original Pizza Place. Both are in downtown Marietta and offer more than enough choices to please even the pickiest pizza gourmets.

Whatever you’re hungry or thirsty for, with our wide variety of eating and drinking options, we’ve got you deliciously covered.


The Buckley House is one of many wonderful dining experiences located in Marietta-Washington County.
