I believe part of this restaurant has been around for 50 years or more as I remember it from childhood. Been here twice in the past two years, unfortunately related to funerals. The food is always excellent, even with a group of 30+ people. We were given multiple choices. Services was fantastic and helpful. Bar service was good as well.... More

Consistently legendary food and hospitality since I started visiting 40 yrs ago. Downstairs is a family atmosphere dining area with a wonderful bar and cocktail party area. Upstairs is your fine dining area and full service bar as well. Lots of parties and memories wrapped up within those walls😎

It is unpredictable as to how long you will wait for a seat, I have found that they always over estimate your wait so I stay. The bar is large and friendly. The do great cocktails, beer is really cold and food is very good. Portions are often too large for me so I encourage sharing with my partner(r) for... More

There are places and then there are places. Marco Polo is a basic home cooked quality place. At home feel at the bar and at the tables. Staff makes you feel welcome and there is a warm cozy feel to the place.

Met friends here because it was not in the downtown area and there is plenty of parking for customers. We met at the bar which was really nice because you can have a conversation and not have to constantly lean in and shout over the crowd and/or music. Nice and relaxed, no pressure by bartender. Overall was an enjoyable time... More

Marco Polo is a very good family restaurant. The Italian wedding soup is the best around. That and the chef's Italian salad make a very nice lunch. (I have it at least once a month.) The pizza is excellent. And the menu -- which is extensive -- covers what you would expect to find in a good, mid-priced Italian or... More

We've eaten here many times over the past 17 years. Large portions and good basic food. Go early on the weekends and expect to wait a bit. Kid friendly.
