“Marcel's is The BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Want a great dining experience while visiting Port Aransas? Then don't miss Marcel's. Marcel cooks everything personally and only uses the freshest ingredients. We have eaten here often and have never had anything but the best. His fish dishes are always to die for. Don't miss desert, the peach melba is Alan's favorite!

“Finally tried.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We ate here with a party of 4 adults and 1 child. The food was very good and service was excellent. Each of us had a different meal and all were very satisfied. My five yr old just wanted grilled fish with no seasoning and a vegetable and they were more than willing to accomodate her. We will be going back.

We are so glad you enjoyed your meal with us. People are sometimes surprised that we are "Kid Friendly", but we enjoy giving children a grown up dining experience (with crayons and coloring pages of course...) :)

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely meal here on the 21st January. The restaurant was clean, the staff friendly and the service was good. The food was excellent and nicely presented, the Key Lime pie was the best. We will be returning.

“Fantastic German Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I had a great German Dinner and authentic German Beer.
The owners were very friendly which added to the great
atmosphere. Wow - table cloths and napkins which was the
only restaurant visited here in 6 days.

“Always a great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We have been going here for years. The food is always good. The staff is friendly and the service is great. I love the soups, salad, homemade bread, seafood dishes and German food. The goulash with homemade spaetzle is one of my favorites.
