good steak special

Dinner there on a crowded Tuesday evening. The steak special was cooked to perfection for the three of us that ate steak. One had the Chicken Picatta which was thoroughly enjoyed. Even though it was noisy as most restaurants are, dinner was served in a timely manner. I have been going to this... read more

My best friend and I chose Marco's for its proximity to her home and because we try to eat local always. I had a fish dinner that was bland and cold and had to send it back. With one glass of wine, my bill was more than what I anticipated. Prefer local, but local has to deliver!

We are regulars at Marco's Restaurant & Lounge. We have seen changes in its ownership, but the service has never declined. For the last 7 years, we have periodically eaten there alone, with friends, with our children and business associates, with our elderly parents. Everyone always loved the place. We tend to take our family for the Tuesday Night Special,... More

Over the years, I have dined at Marco's Restaurant and Lounge on more than 100 occasions and enjoyed every drink, every dinner very time. The food, the drink and the friendly servers make this restaurant truly a rare find. The restaurant has a full service bar with talented bartenders who know how to make your perfect drink. The Tuesday night... More

First timer here: I read a lot of all over the board reviews for this place, but I only judge from my own personal experience, and I was not the B-day gal so this was not my choice. This was a group of 4 Women who celebrate our Birthdays at the restaurant of our choice (And trust me, as a... More

Let me start by stating my husband and I are 100% Italian. We appreciate good food and honestly are used to good Italian food that either I or my many relatives have prepared over the last 50 plus years. We read the reviews and were sent here by some friends(non-Italian). We had a 7:00 p.m reservation for 4 on a... More

We had dinner and drinks last night at Marcos on the patio! Wow...what a great experience. I had the ribs - the meat fell of the bone and tasted amazing! The crab stuffed mushrooms blew me away and the white cosmo is a must. Honestly, one of the best meals I have had in ages. Great job!

This place felt like an old-school, small town family restaurant. Cozy atmosphere but food was overpriced and very average. Also, they have family dining but don't have a kid's menu. Next time we'll go to Mama Corolla's down the street for much better food at the same price.

Promoted as Italian, but the chain Italian restaruants taste fresher. We live nearby, but stopped going because we found beter nearby.
