The interior is a throw back to the 70's - which I hope they never change or update. The grounds and patio are all updated and the place overlooks Lake Como. We only ordered burgers so that's all the food I can comment on but...More

Mars Restaurant and Bar is a fun spot for a casual dinner and drinks. The food is good and the drinks well made. There is a piano bar with an excellent performer who plays music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Best Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake...More

This long time Resturant has been known for ribs and they haven't lost a beat. Service is good and the bar drinks are enjoyable. Piano bar on the weekends adds a fun evening.

We got to Mars a bit late and enjoyed hanging out with everyone. All of the people there were friendly and the music was good. They had ten tap handles with some decent beer choices. We will be back for sure!

We stopped in early afternoon to check it out. Sat outside over looking the lake. Bloody Mary's were great. Went back for dinner I had the butt steak which was very good. My husband had fish which was great.
