One of the busiest yet one of the best in the area. The menu is great with lots of variety. The wait staff are attentive and professional. The food is always excellent.

We went there without a reservation and although they were busy we got a table in 10 minutes. The service was good and the waiter was helpful. There were 3 of us and we had the artichoke dip to start and it was very good. The steaks were cooked correctly and were delicious. I would recommend this restaurant.

Usually J. Marks is a "go to" restaurant of mine, but tonight I was really disappointed. I've been there 4 times in the last 6 months and usually have very good food and service. Tonight the service was really slow (maybe our waiter was new) and we kept having to flag him down to ask for refills. Food took a... More

Ate lunch at J Marks and were very pleased with both the service and food. The bread is served hot, which I love! Tables are spread nicely which makes it a great place for a business or romantic lunch. Only downside, and this is a big one for me was the smell of the restaurant. It's obvious that the cleaners...

JMarks Pompano location is a large, mall type restaurant that is nicely appointed, clean, friendly and inviting. The menu is large, portions generous and the preparation consistent. We thought the seafood was top notch and they charge accordingly. But they are usually mobbed and have become an established part of the Pompano dining scene. If there were not so many... More
