We tried Marcel's based on friends recommendation. From the outside it doesn't look all that great...but once you go inside you know instantly that this restaurant is very different from the others in Port A. The staff was very pleasant. The wait staff was top notch and we never had to ask for anything. But most of all, our dinner was very relaxing. Marcel's is an easy place to unwind and eat great food. We did not chose the German meals. We tried the chicken cordon blue and the fried red snapper. Both meals were superb. Also, the key lime pie is amazing as well. We will definitely go back next time we are in port A.

Went to Marcel's with my family members because we had heard so much about it.
Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious.
This is a place I would recommend to everyone traveling in Port A.

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere really special for our anniversary dinner. Marcel's was just that...special. The food was fabulous and offered both delicious seafood and traditional German dishes. When asked about a particular spice that was used, the chef actually came out to our table and described his technique. Service was amazing!!! We will definitely be returning!!

My husband and I love going to Marcels. We often smile as we drive past so many restaurants with lines of people waiting. They have no idea what they are missing. Marcels is a small gem of the coast that is often overlooked. They do serve seafood, but the German cuisine is amazing! You can't go wrong with the Schnitzels, Saurbraten, and homemade bread. The ranch dressing is by far the best you will ever taste. Being of German descent, this is the real deal. As much as I love Fredericksburg, this is the real McCoy. And if you want REAL key lime pie, you must try Marcels! By the way, you can actually purchase a loaf of the homemade bread to take home.
