This place is one of several in PortA with gormet food cooked by tempermental chefs that moved here to run restarants by there own rules and the food is amazing. Soups are my favorite. They often run out of popular items and it isn't open every day or very late, but it is sooo worth it. Don't be put off by the appearance from the outside. Go in and eat well.

We had jalapeños stuffed with crab....crunchy crust, spicy with a lot of crab. Veal shoulder and veal scallopini, we both enjoyed our veal and would order them again...excellent. The fresh vegetables, side salad and spaetzle is a cut above other restaurants. We will be returning soon. Thanks for the good service too.

I usually order one of the blackboard specials. They are excellent. The soup specials are a much try item. Made from fresh vegetables & other delectable ingredients. The bread is very tasty. My sister has seafood allergies & this is her favorite restaurant in Port A. Great seafood but also really good steak & German dishes. The service is good. The wine is good. Marcel's is always on our dining list when in Port A.

My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner at Marcel's. Food was good to very good (bread was excellent and the steak was perfect) and the service was excellent considering the place was full and the waitress was covering many tables. She was really pleasant in spite of how busy she was. A family owned and operated restaurant that may not suit everyone, but if you want a quality dining experience, they do a nice job. Marcel's has a high rating among P.A. restaurants and after eating there, I agree.

Fine menu selection with wide price options, great German draft beer, good wine selection, tasty bread before meal with appetizers and attentive service. Daily special was both good value and tasty (braised lamb shank). A number of typical German specialties on menu in addition to your usual American dishes. My wife (who was born and partially raised in Germany) found the pan-fried pork schnitzel tasty. We will be back before we leave town.
