This is a great place but is what I call a hidden gem. All the locals know about the place but folks from out of town may never hear about it. We've been there for date-night and with family gatherings. Food is great and the staff is very helpful/friendly. Highly recommend.

One of Indy's best neighborhood bars and restaurants. Tuesday is cheap meat night - great filets! Specials every week and weekday. Great service and prices! They also have on of the best patios in town. Try it!

We have visited Marco's 4 times in the last 12 months. Every time we have had the opportunity to visit was very good food and service was excellent. My wife and I had the small 7 ounce filet which was excellent. One other time I had their shrimp as a main entry which was excellent. Side dishes are good, too.

Was taken there for my birthday and it was a great night with my girlfriend. Good service, a very nice meal and lovely atmosphere. They have live music on Wednesday evenings on the patio and so we are going back for a different experience. Being from Australia this type of dining is what we are used to, so it is... More

There's something about the exterior of the restaurant - perhaps the neon dining room sign, or the patio - perhaps the big Marco's sign with the star - but I KNEW I was going to love this place. And I did. Love the ambiance - the dark, romantic lighting, the supper club vibe of either the dining room or the... More

Place isn't fancy, but it cool. Food is good for the most part. My chicken piccata and my wife's Parmesan Tilapia were wonderful. Calamari is tender, but too much breading. Soups are just too busy with conflicting seasonings. All in all, a great place.

I had the tilapia, which was a little too charred for my liking but still good nonetheless. The prime rib was phenomenal as well as the martinis! Server was excellent but our wait between courses was longer than usual.

This was a great little steak house and one that you can sit back in. We pestered the waiter till he made us sweet tea and it was like it came from Alabama! The food was great and the meals (5) were all fine. It is not upscale in finishing or the expectations for the ambiance, though it is a... More

It is excellent and prepared very well. The service is great and they are very friendly. I would highly recommend going here if your in... More

Every year a group of friends get together for an early dinner. We had reservations at a local steakhouse but we're not told about the "set menu". Those reservations were canceled a few days before and we were lucky to get into Marco's. It is a local restaurant and they had a limited menu but with enough variety to satisfy... More
