Maybe it was just our luck but the three in our party order off the menu were extremely happy. Short ribs, banana grouper, and a chicken stirfry. The 2 of us that ordered the specials, blackened swordfish with tomato and fresh mozzarella salad, and the Pompano were not very happy. Just so-so honestly. Our server, and also bartender Megan was... More

Large parties seem... More

We started out for another eating spot but the parking lot was full and the waiting line was discouraging so... we backtracked to another location I had noticed on our way. Turns out it was a great choice. Not on the water, but quieter. Although we were seated inside, we could still hear the musician from the porch area. Brittany,... More

We have dined at Marek's several times and always enjoy it. The menu offers different items than other restaurants so we really love that. The desserts are also very different and amazing. I had a warm banana walnut cake with ice cream and I am still dreaming about it!! The fish is always delicious and cooked perfectly. We had a... More

This season we have dined there 5 times so far. No one has ever been disappointed with the excellent food and service. The wait staff is professional and at the same time very pleasant as they inform you about the menu. Our favorite server is Brittany but that is just our preference.

Great meal! Prompt service, we shared an appetizer. My husband had a banana macadamia encrusted fish entree, and I had the rack of lamb. Both were excellent. We shared a dessert! Yummy! We will go again!

I can't say enough about the top of the line food and service at this establishment. I wanted to eat slowly to savor every morsel of my meal. It was difficult during the appetizers to imagine that an actual 'meal' could top this. If you're ever in the area, be sure to stop by this family-owned establishment and prepare for... More
