It's been many year since we had a party in their private room [which holds up to 32] but I wanted to give it a try since it's really hard to find another venue for such a weird number of guests. I was SO pleasantly surprised by the wonderfully easy and smooth experience both Koolah, the event manager, and our... More

We brought my mom with us to Sunday Brunch today. Wow! The buffet style brunch has all the traditional items and, in addition, a carving station with roast beef (horseradish sauce is there if you wish) and a station for made-to-order omelets! We arrived early and the food was plentiful and piping hot. The clam chowder is wonderfully thick and... More

I held my mom's 75th surprise birthday party here. We had the brunch. My god what a great selection of food. They waited on us hand and foot. I wanted to have the party here because my parents were engaged at this place many years back. They always spoke highly of it, and they were right. The price for the... More

Wow! What a performance. Kudos to all the dancers! It was great! Very large crowd in a banquet room. Looked like standing room only! I ordered their Calamari, which comes with a marinara sauce. Normally I don't like restaurant marinara. This was a great marinara, don't be afraid to order it. It's almost as good as mine. The Calamari was... More

We went there for a reunion. There was a baby shower and a remembrance in other rooms. Plenty of parking, although the parking lot and flower (cigarette) pots needed to be cleaned. The bar area was packed. Felt bad for the people seated to eat in this area. One of the waitresses tried politely to get people to move to... More

I've been going to Marco Polo for years and have never been disappointed. Their pizza is to die for and the lasagna is some of the best in the city. The banquet facilities are excellent. It's the perfect place for a reception, shower, or any special event. The service is consistently good and you can't beat it for happy hour.... More

Marco Polo has the best lobster bisque served in a huge bowl. Its a meal by itself. The chicken parm is awesome and their salads are so good. Service is always great. Bar area is more casual while the dining area is a little more formal. This place never disappoints.

For the last few years, this has been our primary place for takeout pizza. We love the varieties, including the Buffalo Chicken and one with sausage, spinach and red bliss potatoes. We have enjoyed dinners here, as well as the Sunday brunch and happy hour. Lately, we have been buying large lasagna's for serving at parties. The lasagna is fantastic... More
