Mark's is ok, but nothing special--definitely a know-your-name neighborhood hangout. When we walked in and sat down literally everyone in the place turned to look at the "outsiders." Food wasn't all that impressive (the thin pizza is mostly sauce and very few crumbles of cheese on a deep fried thin crust...?). There aren't really any light entrées, and most items... More

This is definitely an everybody knows your name kind of place. Dingy interior could only persuade regulars to make a return visit. My wife did enjoy her cheeseburger, but the fries were just an afterthought. I couldn't tell you what my eggplant parm was like because they insisted there was no meat in it (I am a vegetarian) and the... More

We live near Marks and see the specials posted on the street signs all of the time. We finally decided to try it with my mom one day. We were hoping for a local gem. I had the buffalo chicken wrap, it was edible, but not good. Mom had the chicken teriyaki, only half of the rice was cooked, the... More

We have been wanting to stop in, seeing the signs for really sweet specials, but normally have our 3 year old son. It just goes to show you don't judge a book by its cover...they have high chairs and it would be fine. So we stopped in last night probably 945. There's almost no other places you can get food...

I have been going to Mark's for quite some time and the food is very good (the specials are mostly excellent). The prices are extremely reasonable and Mark prides himself at keeping his prices low as compared to his competitors - you get really good food here at an incredible value. The crowd is always friendly and we love when... More

Good bar food and good service. Only thing odd was seeing the owner starring at women the whole entire time. One couple left after one drink because she told her partner that she felt uncomfortable. But anyways its a guy hang out

Driving through Rotterdam you need to stop at Mark's. Great food and atmosphere with some of the best chicken wings to be had. There are many types of wings to be had (I suggest the Teriaki) for every pallet. Many beers on draft, plus a huge bottle selection. Come to Mark's on Wednesdays and the wings are only $5.50 a...

I just wish I still lived in Rotterdam!! When I lived there, I never tried Mark's Tavern mainly because it seemed like a "bar" more than a restaurant. Well, unfortunately I missed a wonderful place to eat. The burger was made with fresh meat from a local market and the fries were hand-cut and perfectly cooked. My friend had "twin"... More
