Folkie’s Tavern really is a place where everyone knows your name. You hang out with old friends and make new ones. Don’t we all want a great place like that?
Folkie’s was established in 1941 by Barnett Folk. Steve Schrader and his wife, Darnell, took ownership in 1979. It has been a staple to Downtown Marion ever since! You can expect excellent food. Some crowd-pleasers include the ribeye sandwich, grilled chicken sandwich, and asiago cheese soup. A favorite menu item is Darnell’s House Salad which is not shy with the bacon. You will find daily lunch specials as well, which are available on Facebook or by joining the email list. They offer carry-out, delivery, and have Folkie’s Bucks or gift cards in $5 increments. Due to COVID-19 issues, they are currently open for carry-out only on Fridays from 3 – 6pm.

In addition to great food, you can find great entertainment! Join the fun with weekly Karaōke on Wednesdays, the ever-popular and eventful Crab Races on Thursdays, and starter-parties with free appetizers on Fridays. From May through October, you will find the outdoor tent-covered patio as a great place to gather and enjoy the nice weather.
Folkie’s loves our community as much as we love it! Right now, they are hoping to create a mural on the south wall and are hoping to work with a local artist or artists. If you have ideas for the mural or are hoping to create the design and paint it, please submit your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will win a gift card!
