Great German dishes

Make reservations for dinner. Prime rib on Saturday night is the best, anywhere! The German food is very good, especially the liver dumpling soup. We have had several family gatherings there and have received many compliments!

This was a important dinner. The area was cramped and dirty with food on the chairs and floor. The restaurant knew about the dinner for more then a month. If they could not provide a great experience they should have stated that fact. The staff was not overly impressive due to rushing everyone at the table. Communication between staff was... More

The food at Mark's Eastside is consistently good. I've never been disappointed no matter what I've ordered. This a place where the servers are attentive, but not over-bearing, and the owner comes around to see how things are going. He really cares about his customers and their satisfaction.

Just have to say that our most recent visit to Mark's was nothing short of outstanding, from the very friendly bartender and waitress to the top notch German food everything was the best. We had; pork hocks and schnitzel ala Holstein. The red cabbage is out of this world. Thanks Mark for the great food.

The German food selection was amazing and absolutely delicious! Tried the sampler platter and could have fed 4 people from it! Had great leftovers. The staff was courteous and attentive on a very busy night.

This is a wonderful supper club. Many German selections, but just about anything you could want on the menu. Great food, fair prices and very good service. Mark walks around and says hello and checks on food. Bit of a wait on a Friday night, but still worth it!! Highly recommend!

We live just 15 minutes from Mark's East Side. I know, because one evening I left my credit card in the bill envelope, and their call alerting me was waiting as I returned home. So I set the timer on my I-phone and went back to retrieve my credit card, which was safely stored in the office. I mention this... More

I ate here one evening at the recommendation of TripAdvisor. I saw a lot of rave reviews but didn't understand what was so great. The staff was pleasant and receptive but nothing over the top. Additionally, the food was good but not a memorable culinary experience. This is not a negative review, just saying that my experience was acceptable at... More
