“Average American Steak House Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Market was highly recommended by our nearby hotel. The restaurant is located a few steps away from Uruguay Street, Panama City's restaurant row. This high traffic, dimly lit, perilous avenue is roughly paved with minimal access to broken sidewalks. A faint smell of raw sewage seeped through the night air as we picked our way around piles of bagged garbage awaiting pick up. A Hooters sits at the end of the street. Such a disconnect from the gloss of Panama City.
Market is a bustling eatery, serving steaks and burgers with the usual side dishes. It also boasts an active bar scene. Service was prompt. The food was decent enough. We ate there twice as the restaurant seemed to be a viable alternative to other dining options on Uruguay Street.

“Great place for a lunch aor light dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Located not far from the harbor and the large hotels. Very comfortable atmosphere and while an Americanized Latin menu, it was all done very well. Good service and reasonable prices. Always nice to be in a restaurant that is busy and has plenty of local people.

“When you're ready for American food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Market is the place to go to get burgers, salads, friend chicken or other classic American food. The staff is fluent in English and the kitchen staff has obviously learned the language as well as the food and service were consistently good. Suitable for families and for couples, Market is a nice change of pace, particularly for a lighter meal
