“Superb Meat, Perfectly Cooked, Nice Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

As good as it gets anyplace with a steakhouse. In Ocala, the capital city of Florida's horse and cattle ranch country, you would expect an outstanding steakhouse. Although you don't always get what you expect, Mark's Prime Steakhouse and Seafood is truly outstanding. They offer a complete menu, but they do specialize in steak and seafood. They provide a wide choices of steaks and ways they prepare it. All meat is aged and superbly choice. My steak was perfection in the meat and preparation, plus very creative, with a crab meat topping and light bluecheese taste. Although it sounds unusual, it was a pleasant matching with the meat, which complemented, but did not overwhelm the steak. Wine list extensive, but includes good, moderately priced wines. My only quibble of the evening is that the waiter's recommended dessert of chocolate cake turned out to be finished. In a restaurant the quality of Mark's, they should not have run out, and if they did, the waiter should have known that, and not recommended it. Still, an outstanding meal.

“A Very Good Steakhouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Indoor and outdoor seating. Indoor seating is as I would expect at a steakhouse - tables, booths, wood, leather. The acoustics were a little loud. We started in the bar where the bartender was polite, attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. They are really well-stocked with spirits...about anything you could imagine. Didn't check on their beers. We went into the main dining room for dinner. Prices are in line with other steakhouses I've been to. I had the tenderloin tips with a brandy peppercorn sauce and mashed potatoes. The tenderloin tips had a nice crunch from the sear on the outside and were tender in the middle. The sauce was excellent. I shared an oder of the roasted corn with peppers, onions and bacon. It was AMAZING. My parents ordered a New York Strip and a Petite Filet; I tried some of each. The strip steak was nicely marbled, tender (as strips steaks go), and well-seasoned. It did come out cooked a little beyond the medium-rare that was ordered. The filet was buttery-tender and delicious. Wine prices were also in line with other steakhouses, and they had a good selection of reds by the bottle or glass. Our server was fine - but not memorable. I would go back for another steak!

“Nice steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This place has ample inside and outside seating. The food was very good, not great but very good, although I thought it was a bit overpriced for the quality of the food. Adam was a great server and did a great job with recommending what to try. Overall, I probably won't go back

“Simply exquisite!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended to us as we were in town for a meeting. We took several clients there for dinner and it was outstanding!!!! From the time we walked in to our service at our table, everything was top notch!!! We had several appetizers, cocktails and again. Perfect!!!! For dinner I had the special, bone in filet with blackened shrimp and blackened scallops and it was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. We have decided that we will eat here every time we are in Ocala now. If you get the chance to eat there, go you won't be disappointed.
