This is a little place tucked in the middle of a little strip mall that I'd never even noticed before. The decor is minimal, but what's there is pleasant: little vases of nice flowers, a few prints on the walls. The interior tables are pretty small, probably only suitable for two diners, and two wall-mounted TVs blare the news. The two tables on the sidewalk outside are markedly superior, comfortably seating four under umbrellas that aren't necessary because the building itself provides excellent shade. Also outside we had piped jazz and the trees of the park across the street, and even though the location is wedged betweeen I-465 and I-65, I didn't notice much highway noise and had little trouble conversing with the other Reuben afficianados. Fortunately no one complained when we brought another table and a few chairs out so we could all sit together.
No fountain drinks of any kind are provided, only a choice of Faygo and Pepsi products served in bottles from a cooler behind the register. I had Faygo Peach, which was decent enough and an interesting change. Table service was prewrapped, if I recall, and condiments were provided in individual serving packets. The sandwich was served in a paper-lined plastic basket/tray, with battered and seasoned steak fries and a pickle spear. I typically find steak fries bland, with too much flavorless mush in the middle of the crunchy exterior, and these were typical specimens of that variety. The sandwich, on the other hand, was an interesting and unusual concoction. The most obvious difference was that it was made with three slices of presliced sandwich bread. While the bread didn't seem to have any particular rye flavor (and ironically enough was not a marbled rye, despite the name of the restaurant), it was perfectly toasted, and I think the extra bread in the interior helped absorb the juices that can make a Reuben a very messy sandwich. The other variation was that it was made with both Swiss and American cheese: on most Reubens the cheese doesn't really stand out, but on this sandwich the cheese blended nicely with the other flavors. There was a good amount of kraut and dressing, and though I encountered one small bit of gristle the meat was otherwise quite good in flavor, texture, and quantity. Overall it made for a tasty sandwich, and of good enough size that I didn't feel the need for a bite of the extra sandwich we received. I'm not sure why there was an extra sandwich, I assume that with so many of us showing up and not all at the same time, the cook simply lost count, but it may have been a sort of goodwill offering. As far as I know, no one was charged for it, and it certainly didn't go to waste.
I'm a bit confused over the pricing. The menu listed the Reuben platter at $7.95, but at the register (where we paid after dining, not before) we were only charged $7.53 each, with drink included. Some mention was made of a special, but I didn't catch the details. Regardless, the Marble's Reuben was an interesting and unexpected pleasure at a reasonable price.
