Nice, comfy meal

We came on Monday, supper time. Quick, friendly service. Loved the stuffed Yorkshire pudding. Veggies side was nicely steamed. Chicken parm was alright. Place was inviting, with rustic atmosphere. Love the idea that this place is community oriented with game nights and live music. If we lived... read more

My partner and I stopped in yesterday for an inexpensive meal of good down home food. Ughhhh...what a mistake. The prices are expensive and the food is awful. The restaurant is dark and cold. We were both chilled. I ordered the lunch special of Caesar salad and beef stew. Sounds good right? Umm, the "Caesar" salad came first and was... More

Love the idea that this place is community oriented with game nights and live music. If we lived closer, would def check those nights out.

Very warm Log Cabin décor. The food is delicious and is prepared with care. The weekend brunch is absolutely excellent. Huge omelettes prepared before your very eyes with any and all ingredients you can think of. Waffles are cooked fresh by your chef. All breakfast meats are hot and on display. An XL pot of homemade beans. Fresh fruit too.... More

we used to come to marks all the time as the old location was right by our house. We greatly miss marks for the fabulous quality of the food, lovely service, and amazing value. This is diner food with attention to detail.

I was unsure of how Mark's finer diner will be, especially with some of the negative reviews in this page. Then I decided to take a chance after a colleague recommended this place for breakfast. I was having my buddies over from Toronto, and they wanted the "country style breakfast experience". Surely they were not disappointed. They loved the atmosphere,... More

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
