Amazing Dinner

Came in for dinner with my family tonight, we had a great meal!! The BBQ Chicken and Ribs are the best! My mother had the Liver and Onions, she loved it as well! I've been into Mark's since he was out on the highway and I have always enjoyed the food!

I saw the grand sign out front. It looked like a nice restaurant from the outside! Inside the decor was alright, a little more country bumpkinish/dark (literally dark, not sure if it was just the night we were there or if they have issues with lighting) than I'm used to (not in the good way). The food was awful. My... More

Very disapponting. Liver was unfortunately over cooked, generally tasty but smaller portions were even drier, but clearly over cooked from my request. I asked the waitress for It to be cooked under medium. Vegetables and mashed potatoes were not-even-lukewarm. Good thing the liver had gravy on it, it the only thing that was warm. But not still not hot. No... More

Attended Marks Finer Diner for dinner with two other couples for a Birthday dinner on 22 Feb. Our meals consisted of a variety of soups, burgers, salads and chicken fingers. The waitress was very friendly and prompt in taking our drink and main meal orders. The two other couples who we were with have eaten at Marks prior but was... More

food is tasty, menu has just enough variety as does the wine list. Weekend brunch is good value. Has toys and play area for restless little ones.

We have been going to Mark's for late breakfasts for years - long before they moved to this new location - and have found the service to be very personal and welcoming. We are always seated quickly and served efficiently. To say this is top notch breakfast grub would be an understatement. The Marche style service includes omelettes and eggs... More

Everyone has a great time at Marks, we play cards on Wednesday and dance most Friday or Saturday night!!! The food is great and Mark and his staff are all excellent and professional people. Mark goes out of his way to make his restaurant a very family oriented place!!

I was very pleased; I went in expecting a "diner". We got good diner food at reasonable diner prices with way above average atmosphere (for a diner). Seriously, anyone who doesn't give this place 5/5 on atmosphere must have forgotten the category this eatery is in. Too much pickyness on this site; this is a diner, it's not the Four... More

Staff was slow in getting the food out and was disorganized. They didn't know what they had/or didn't have in stock. Staff touched the food before they served it.

Four of us went for lunch last Jan. 9th and were seated very quickly and politely. Found the menu very average pub grub with nothing really exciting. Orders were taken promptly and the beverages and food served in good time. Since it was not too busy (we went in after 1:00) we were able to sit and visit after our... More
