    Probably another case of “mistaken pedal.” On a serious note, I’ve wondered if some of these businesses should have bollards in place, especially when there is very little standoff distance between the establishment and a high traffic area.

      I hope that everyone is doing fine.

      You are in the minority, most of us locals and many non-locals love Maries. Something horrible just happened and people were hurt yet all you can do is bad mouth them, good job.

    • Charles on September 11, 2018 at 8:46 pm

      Sounds like there are a lot of shut-ins in the area. There is a bigger world outside of Charles County

  4. Sam on September 11, 2018 at 8:22 am

    Hey Charles, was that comment really necessary?

    • Charles on September 11, 2018 at 8:44 pm

      Yes. Deal with it.

    • fhjkf on September 12, 2018 at 9:09 am

      • Charles on September 12, 2018 at 6:11 pm

        Yet here you are doing the same thing

  5. Jeff on September 11, 2018 at 8:23 am

    Real intelligent comment. Instead of typing your comment, say it to the victims and their families. Don’t like the restaurant, fine. Post a review somewhere else.

    • Charles on September 12, 2018 at 8:00 am

      But where’s the fun in that? Freedom of speech

  6. Anonymous on September 11, 2018 at 10:14 am

    Many people feel otherwise. Marie’s is usually quite busy.

    Hope all will be ok. I love Marie’s, the food, the people and being in La Plata.

    Hope everything will be back in place soon and everyone ok.

    • Charles on September 12, 2018 at 8:00 am

      It sucked

  8. Kwb on September 11, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    Charles go to McDonald’s. Marie’s Dinner is a great restaurant for our small town La Plata. No one appreciates your negativity. Sonic could use your business .

    • Charles on September 12, 2018 at 7:59 am

      Sounds like you’ve never left La Plata…get a life

      • Anonymous on September 13, 2018 at 9:05 am

        Now thats funny. A troll telling others to get a life.
        Not really funny, but there it is.

        FYI – sorry I couldn’t respond to the troll earlier. I have a life beyond my keyboard. Unlike the troll.

        Troll response in 3 … 2… 1

      Prayers! For the Sonics of La Plata.

  9. Cindy on September 12, 2018 at 9:02 pm

    Are the eclairs ok?

  10. Deb on September 13, 2018 at 10:30 am

    Marie’s Diner was named the best “Hole in the Wall” diner for Maryland. Just try the Chef’s salad or any breakfast and you will agree.

    • Charles on September 17, 2018 at 10:38 am

      “Hole in the wall” that’s comforting. Sounds like a classy place

  11. Blue Sky on September 18, 2018 at 11:57 am

    Hopefully they can rebuild and make it a little larger. Love the food!
