“Exceptional Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We have been coming to Marco Island for 15 years, and have been to Marek's several times to enjoy our favorite entertainer, Duncan Wheeler. This evening, I ordered their filet, and will tell you that without a doubt, it was the best filet I have ever had, and we are from the Midwest, where beef is king. We absolutely love the servers... brothers Ian and Doug. If you have the opportunity, and the weather is good, you need to sit outside. And, the Duck egg rolls are awesome, too!

“Great food, service, and live music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We went to Marek's while on Marco Island for Spring Break. We have three children and sat outside. Everything we ordered was delicious and the waiter was attentive, but did not hover. There was a guitar player/singer outside which added to the excellent experience. The filet was great, but all the food was delicious. The restaurant both inside and outside are small so reservations would be helpful. The small size of the restaurant adds to the charm. We will definitely return on our next trip to Marco!

“Great Place for Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Enjoyed two dinners at Marek's while on vacation in April. Seafood specials and selections were great as well as the English fare selections. I haven't had "London's Pride" on tap since I was in London! Atmosphere was very nice, well maintained, adn you have the option of a casual or more formal experience. Staff and management were attentive and engaging...and the food was great too!
