Walking in, the place reminds you of one of the more popular chain restaurants. But the food is great. Our service was really slow, though. But that may be because our server was new. My husband got a burger and it was huge. I had shrimp pasta and it was really good.

I'd never been here before, we took our two toddlers on a Friday evening. Firstly the wait for a table wasn't long, unlike my hometown of Miami, secondly for the price I think you will rarely find as good food or service, and lastly the atmosphere was very pleasant. No it's not the cheapest but I've paid more for worse!... More

Had a good meal, it's local to where we stay. Menu has changed, and feel some dishes look as though pre prepared somewhere else. Waitress had problem getting cork out of wine, and because we had waited a while for the wine, I was keen to help, but at 46 dollars for the bottle, maybe she needed some help or... More

Great place! I noticed that all of the waitresses had the most beautiful smiles. Not so sure about the waiters because I wasn't paying attention to them as much, but everyone there was extremely pleasant. Service was excellent and so was the food. We took advantage of a coupon deal - NY strip steak dinner for $20. Only difference between... More

The food is consistently very good. My wife & I enjoy going especially when we end up having to eat late. They have a 2 for 1 happy hour starting again at 9 pm. We always eat in the bar area and enjoy sharing a large Chinese chicken salad and a bowl of soup with a couple of glasses of... More

Back in March I had an unpleasant customer service experience with J Marks and posted a two star review. The main office assured me the situation had been rectified and encouraged me to return. I've been back twice since that March review and pleased to say I had great customer service both times, and the food was delicious. Dennis was... More

J.Marks WAS OUR fav Thurs. Nite Date restaurant. Service is different and they don't serve what is on the menu. Food can be different from description on the menu and tell you "THAT'S how we ALWAYS served it. Wrong. Haven't been back after two such experiences AND our restaurant FRIENDS have had similar experiences. SO J.MARK'S you are off of... More

Hot bread starts either your lunch or dinner...excellent. Love the salads for lunch, especially the salmon salad. Fish for dinner, either salmon or mahi mahi. The food is very good overall. The service is above average and friendly. The homemade lemonade is very good as well as their specialty mojitos. The ambience is comfortable and welcoming.

Felt like a step up from a chain brand, the food was great. I've eaten here twice, once was take out and it was great both times. Love the fries!! Had a burger was great, most recently a chicken sandwich and it was great also! Just around the corner and it's great to bring our visitors.

In Pompano Beach before sailing away on a cruise - this restaurant was suggested by Betty Frances, our Boutique Beach Bungalow owner. She suggested the mojitos - but we went straight for the food which did not disappoint! Went on a Friday night - very busy and upbeat atmosphere with lots of talking going on! Would recommend highly to visitors... More
