Wait staff was very friendly. The dining room is small, and needs updating. Prices are good, but found the food to be average.

What else can you say. No signs no website. Located at the end of a road, right on Lake Como. Great burgers! Ask for cheese and you'll get a huge dollop of Merks Cheddar spread. They have a great bar and the place is always packed. It's old school in a good way!

Saturday August 16th, my wife and I headed up to Mar's Resort on Como Lake to see the Tony Ocean show and have some fun. We've been up to Mar's many times and the third time for the Tony Ocean show.. As usual we had a blast. I brought my own folding chairs with me and sat outside, although they... More

I was really hoping to have a nice meal because it's such a pretty view. It was not to be. I will say this, their staff is extremely nice and I liked the supper club ambiance. But that was it. Not a very good bar selection and perhaps a worse beer selection. Wisconsin has great microbrewerys, but they carried only... More

Went to Mars to hear Joy Smith perform, she has been there for 28 years and knows over 600 piano songs by heart. She was terrific and sounded great, she took all song requests that were given! You sit around the piano, which is also a bar which is really fun and a throw back to another time! The decor... More

Nothing spectacular but its all about the dining on a lake experience. Been going for years, sometimes you wait and sometimes not but overall love the laid back older crowd. No bad reviews here. Some people are never satisfied.

Fun place to go with friends. Staff is nice, food is good and piano player is a nice added touch. Has outdoor seating. Plan ahead on weekends the wait can be long but the drinks are strong.

The food was not great....just okay. They have a rib special on Mondays and Wednesdays but it is only $1 off. Ribs were okay. Have had much better. Potato or fries come with with your choice of soup or salad. Service was good. Place is old but with the view of the lake it has character...reminds you of days past.... More

Mars is a traditional country restaurant. It's located on a beautiful location on the shore of lake como. It's a fun place to go. There is a piano bar and people can have a great time. I've been going there for years. It's older and could use a freshening up but still good. Food is another matter. The best things... More

This is a traditional Wisconsin supper club with a great view of the lake. The service was great and the food was good but nothing special. My wife had a steak which was average. I had their fried chicken and ribs. The ribs were good, the fried chicken was very good.
