Always great taste, good food, reasonable prices and a wonderful ambiance is what you get at Marcel's. A knowledgeable wait-staff, good German beers and the freshest ingredients. Imagination along with time-proven recipes. But most important, along with quality, is the consistency in the kitchen ... if the dish is to be served hot it will be hot, if it is supposed to be chilled or cold then likewise and that favorite dish you liked the last time you visited will be served the same way on your next visit.

We selected this restaurant because they could seat our large party quickly (9 adults & 2 small children). We didn't expect much, but were we plesantly suprised when the meals were surved. The only person to complain was the two year old, his pasta was too spicy, everyone else raved about their meal. We had steak, chicken, multiple fish selections and a couple of German style meals. We all totally enjoyed ourselves and ended up staying for desert. We're all looking forward to our next trip to Port A just so we can go back to this restaurant.

Very good food. We had steak, pasta, and chicken and everybody liked their dish. They also have German food. Only reason I gave this just 4 stars is because our waiter was not very good and we did have to wait for our food. Everyone else seemed to be getting good service so I think it was just our waiter.

Hadn't been to Port A in a while. Decided to try this new to me restaurant. Got there close to opening so there was no wait. The waitress was knowledgeable about the menu items & specials.
Got a seafood appetizer & a German entree...both were delicious & presented very well. I will definitely go back next time I am in the area. Good value for the money!

We dined here for a quiet birthday dinner and were happily surprised. No televisions, quiet comfortable dining. Small and intimate. Excellent food however limited selection. I will definately go back. No children running about. I loved it.
