We haven't had such authentic and exquisite food since leaving Germany where we were stationed for 3 years. The wait staff were very friendly, personable and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and dining experience and would highly recommend Marcels to anyone looking for fresh seafood dinners and/or authentic homemade German food. The prices seemed very reasonable for the quality of food and compared to other restaurants in the area.

My group of 7 had a wonderful meal at Marcel's. The service was excellent, something not often encountered especially in a small town full of tourists. The spaetzle and other german dishes were fantastic. My 12 year old especially loved the cream of leek soup and dessert, both clearly made on premises from classic European recipes. I highly recommend Marcel's and will visit again.

I live in Port A and my parents come down and stay every few months. This is the one must go to place for my mom every time. Wonderful food, wine and beer and a great staff. Not much to look at from the outside but well worth it when you go in!!!

Dined there 7/12/14. Best Snapper I have ever tasted (including what I have caught and cooked). Table for two in bar (beer and wine only) area was quiet, service was excellent, price reasonable. Reservations recommended in summer. Have eaten here on every trip to Pt A (10 times a year) and never been disappointed
