If ur looking for some incredible food at very rare pricing the Mars is the spot.Starting with cracker basket with the cheddar cheese spread to the ribs or chicken and fresh fish daily everything is awesome.

Nice location with indoor/outdoor seating, lengthy wait for Friday fish fry. Food, drinks, service average. Piano bar. Prices okay. May or may not return...many other dining options in the area to try first.

The Kansas City steak is outta this world delish! Place is always busy on Friday and Saturdays, especially in the summer. Wait times sometimes stretch to an hour. Have a drink on the deck while you wait.

Mars is in the process of some renovations so best to make sure they are re-open. As for the menu, it's basically the same as the dinner menu- nice burgers, ribs, popcorn shrimp, fried chicken, and an assortment of fish... More
