German food and a brandy old-fashioned are what this place is all about. Inviting decor, friendly hostess, happy customers, very reasonable prices and generous helpings. Varied menu. Relaxing. Our waitress pushed us a little bit early on, and then didn't return for a while, but it was OK, because we were enjoying ourselves and weren't in any hurry, and it... More

This restaurant is wonderful! The staff is very friendly and prompt. We were there for Friday night fish fry - which is all you can eat, but the first serving is plenty! The schaum torte with raspberry topping is amazing, so save room for it, too! They also sell their bar/snack mix which was a real treat to have for... More

We have been customers of Mark's East Side for over 25 years. Consistently excellent food, excellent service, and an owner who is very welcoming. We were a party of three for lunch during the second week of January 2015. We arrived at 11:30 am and by the time we left, the place was packed. One of the members in my... More

Service was excellent, very attentive to our orders. All food was served at the same time so no one had to wait. I had the fish sandwich which was outstanding. Most were drinking water at our table and waitress made sure we had enough. The surroundings are charming and comfortable.

Wow, its hard to find a gluten free fish fry but this place even offers gluten free French fries and onion rings! I felt like I had just won the food lottery! Wait staff was incredibly friendly and well informed about food allergies. I felt like a regular person again with the ability to order off the regular menu instead... More

We both enjoyed the dinner especially the salad was excellent. Service was good. The fish was quite good but steak was a bit overcooked but still good. Price is a bit high.

Coming from a German family and knowing good German food made the trip to Mark's East Side a treat. The food was amazing. My wife had one of the best steaks of her life and she has been to some fine steakhouses. The German dishes were spectacular. This will definitely be a place we will visit again when in town!

Service good. Price not as good. I had Shrimp scampi. The shrimp was tough (undercooked?) and they forgot the scampi (tasted like water with butter in it). My wife had walleye which had to have been frozen for a very long time. I have eaten a lot of walleye, which is just about my favorite fish and I have never... More

The restaurant itself is beautiful-even the bathroom was! The place was clean and well maintained. The service was fast, the staff very friendly. But the food was what stands out. The salad bar was loaded with great choices and was clean and well filled. I saw a girl fill, straighten, and clean up the area with great efficiency. The dinners... More
