A word from Marc's on Market
We are a locally owned and operated neighborhood restaurant. Our focus is to serve seasonal food which is artistically presented and served in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. We do not consider ourselves to be fine dining, we prefer to consider ourselves offering the best wholesome food we can, in a neighborhood setting. Our Chef, Marc Copenhaver, was the winner of the Wilmington Magazine's Top Chef Contest in April,2008. He won again when allowed to finally compete in 2011. Our menu offers a great variety to accommodate different tastes and appetites. We change our menu almost daily to offer the best product we can provide. All of our desserts are made on premise. We offer bar specials during the week if you are looking for an easy escape for socializing with friends. We would love for you to like us on facebook.

Marc's on Market reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Each course incorporated fresh
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/26/2012
    Each course incorporated fresh local ingredients. The snapper was prepared perfectly. My husband loved the black-eyed peas which were not overcooked and infused with an herbed vinegar, we think. We wish Sara and Marc the best in CO, but hate to see such a great place to dine close.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    We always find Marc's to be a comfortable place to dine. The meals are delicious. This last time we ate there we enjoyed the grouper with bacon gravy and the braised beef shanks. The calamari with the sweet and spicy topping was a tasty start to the meal. Marc and Tyson's techniques and choices in fresh seasonal foods lend a lot of help to those of us who must work at watching our weight. We are so glad they are nearby, but if they are farther away for customers, it's well worth the drive.

    Overall very good. Waitress was a little bit rushed but service was still very good. Food served hot. Grouper was excellent. Scallops were tastey but for $20+ I expected to see more than 4. Sweet potatoes were a little over seasoned. Salad was notable. Asparagus was cooked perfectly. Shrimp and calamari appetizer was excellent and nothing like wha t you see in other restaurants.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/3/2012
    The restaurant certainly is kid-friendly (we had our 9 month old grandson with us), but it may offend some customers since it is a rather pricey meal. We certainly made an extra effort to not let our grandson interfere with other customers. Probably wouldn't take a kid there except maybe for Sunday brunch. The food was excellent with fresh ingredients. Please note that it wasn't the restaurant that was uncomfortable with our grandson, but us!

    This was my first time at Marc's on Market. Great food, great service, and a good time was had by all. As I understand the menu changes daily but on the day we went, there was an abundance of choices for both seafood and meat lovers. Great Overall experience and I have marked it as one of my favorites. Would have no problem bringing people sophisticated tastes to Marc's on Market.

    Our family had a wonderful meal at Marc's on Market. The homemade chips and blue cheese dip was a wonderful appetizer. We had bass fillet, rabbit, short ribs, & grouper. They were all delicious! We also had dessert (coconut cake-a little sweet, carmel cheesecake, & chocolate torte). The service was great and we truly enjoyed our meal. It was expensive but since everything was so delicious we felt that the price was justified.

    Dinner for two on a holiday weekend. We are locals and this was our first visit. Easy reservation by OPEN TABLE. Good service with a range of drink options. Marc's has a large area for seating, thus you are not cramped or crowded. There is a separate alcove for a large group (~ 8-10), but the restaurant has adequate seating space for large family groups or parties. The bar area is separate from the dining area and thus reduces the noise/party activity issue (good design choice). Nice selection of appetizers and a daily salad or soup choice. Entrees range from seafood to meat with some vegetarian options. Our dinner (grouper and salmon) were hot, tasty and very filling. A pleasant place to have a good meal with your partner. Recommend

    Easy to make reservations w/OpenTable. Marc's on Market is one of the great restaurants in Wilmington. It is located in a very unassuming mall strip that includes a gun shop (really)! Once inside there is a large seating area with tables covered with white tablecloths and good spacing between tables. Service and food are top-rated. The chef is one of the best in Wilmington--highly creative and unique menu items. This visit included NC rabbit and a delicious, unique salmon appetizer(which were absolutely incredible!) Desserts are homemade and always special and never disappoint.

    Our waitress could not get our checks (for what we had) correct. I dont't what her problem was in charging us the right amount. It was my husbands bithday day don't you think as most other first class restaurnts do is give a disert for no charge? All in all I would rate your place on a scale 1 to 10 a 6.

    I'm gluten free and I felt very safe eating here. While there isn't a "gluten free menu", the staff was very knowledgeable about what was in each dish. The food was wonderful and fresh. The noise level got a bit loud due to the acoustics, but not horrible. I'd go again if we had a special occasion to celebrate. Loved that it was a local business, not a chain.

    BigDaddyLionhawk
    Dined on 7/29/2012
    The dishes Marc prepared for us where good as usual. He always comes up with some unique appetizers, such as the lettuce wraps. My wife had the lobster bisque, which was very very good. My short ribs were fall apart delicious and my partner had scallops that were prepared perfectly. We have grown to enjoy the quaintness of Marc's after living in large northern cities for the last 30 years with their crowds and high prices. Good food, space between their tables and relaxed dining lends itself to an always good evening with Marc and his cordial staff....
