  • "We have an outstanding experience at Mark's. My son proposed to his future wife during our dinner at Mark's. The staff was incredible in helping us pull off this surprise. We had two babies with us and they made sure he had a quiet location with plenty of room for high chairs.Our server Carlos was so attentive.The manager brought the couple a small bottle of champagne after proposal. Food was outstanding. We had variety of entrees: steaks, chicken and fish. The cauliflower casserole was the best I had ever had. The lobster escarole was loved by everyone. Deserts were luscious. I will visit this restaurant every time I come to Ocala. Rate this as one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Thanks to the staff at Mark's."

  • "What a unique dining experience - hot food. Entree, potatoes, veggies, even the bread, were all hot. Can't remember the last time we really had hot food in a restaurant. We both had a filet, smaller size for my wife, larger for me. Both to be prepared differently. Both came exactly as ordered. Fingerling potatoes, mushrooms, and caramelized onions all prepared perfectly. Service was excellent, our waiter attentive but not overbearing and pleasant to talk with. There is a sufficient wine list for something to accompany your meal. And the bar makes a good cocktail. One more plus, valet parking right outside the door so that when you're ready, your car is too. A totally enjoyable evening."

  • "I tried to order the two dishes that interested me-Seafood Medley or the Pasta w/Lobster--I was told I could not have either---No Lobster available-which I found strange --Winn Dixie has Lobster on sale at $8.00 a piece...I would certainly made arrangement to get Lobsters for the customers who came to dinner......I settled for the same thing I have had the last two times I've been there-Pork Chop, My wife enjoyed her dish which I was glad-it was her Birthday and that was more important. Our waiter was very nice and he didn't know what to say...."

  • "Spent a night out with friends. Travel an hour to enjoy the food and service at Mark's Prime Steak House. It was raining and we were met at the curb by the staff with umbrella's. We were not rushed during the evening."

  • "I made a reservation for a friend and I to have dinner. I specifically asked for a booth in the bar area because we like the atmosphere. We were given the perfect table. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was excellent and so were the cocktails. We were talking at our table after dinner and we did not feel like we were being rushed out of the restaurant for the next customers. We have tried several things on the menu over the past year and everything is delicious. The calamari and French onion soup are the favorite appetizers! It's a little more money than you would pay at the average restaurant but well worth it."

  • "We enjoy an evening at Mark's occasionally. However, they could greatly improve their bread choice. Country Club of Ocala has fabulous bread. The ambience at Mark's is fair because of the noise factor. The food is great, and that's why we go threre."

  • "The moment we entered Mark's Restaurant we felt very welcome and appreciated. Our waiter Chris was very attentive, respectful and helpful in placing our order. The overall service was equal to or better than our experience at Ruth Chris Steak House in Tampa. Our steak was cooked to perfection just as ordered, tender and delicious. The manager stopped at our table to thank us for coming to dinner and to make sure our meal was what we had expected. Great experience! This was our second time at Mark's Steak House and we will be coming back. It is a 5 star experience and the price reflects the quality of the food and service. Well worth the price! A must place to have a special dining experience."

  • "My wife an I have been here at least a dozen time since moving to Ocala 2 years ago. The waiters are always knowledgable and great to suggest a side or a good wine that will go great with your entree. A little pricey for Ocala but u get a great dining experience. Will go again and again. "

We wanted to take them out for a nice dinner and decided on Mark's in Ocala. The food (especially the bone-in filet, service, and atmosphere was fantastic. We look forward to dining at Mark's during our next visit."

  • "Mark's Prime Steakhouse is with out a doubt the best steak in the area. We have tasted many excellent steaks but this is the best. The taste is wonderful. It cuts without a steak knife. The service was terrific. Deborah was very friendly, courteous and efficient...we will ask for her on our next trip. It is nice to have a dinner where you can hear yourselves talk without a lot of noise. Keep up the good work. "

  • "We always enjoy Marks. The steak was excellent. The crab bisque is like a dessert; I order it every time I get the chance. But ... stick with the steak? The fish I ordered last visit was terrible. A dry, tasteless piece salmon I couldn't finish; and it was the special of the night."

  • "Excellent!! We live in Citrus County and finding exceptional restaurants with a short drive is not easy. However, as always, Mark's provided us with a fantastic dining experience. We were celebrating two birthdays and Marks helped us do it in style! The petite filets were cooked to perfection as were the grilled asparagus. Our friends ordered the lobster macaroni as a side which they said was delicious beyond words. Our escargot appetizer was mouth watering. Our waiter was knowledgeable and no question stumped him. He was extremely attentive but not overbearing. Looking for 5-star restaurant in central Florida, Mark's is it!! "

  • "My husband and I were in Ocala for the OBS sale in April. We were totally impressed with Mark's Steakhouse. The overall dining experience started with someone welcoming us by opening the doors. We were seated in a comfortable booth. Our waiter came over immediately and took our drink order. He was gracious with special and ordering suggestions. Our food was perfect! We shared the 5-layer chocolate cake for dessert! "

  • "Had a great dinner with terrific food but one table was extremely noisy to the point that I could not hear my spouse speaking to me even though the noisy table was in the back of the restaurant. Also, went dressed up as I expected the restaurant to have a dress code (and according to signage, they do) though someone sitting right in front of us was in shorts, t-shirt and flip-flops. It was good but for the price, I was just expecting more."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Greeted and seated promptly. Dining room was so dark that we needed a small flashlight to read the menu. Varied menu gave a lot of choice but mostly steaks as expected. My dates petite filet was order medium rare and came very rare. The waitress took it back to the kitchen. My steak was delivered as ordered. Side portions were huge and best to share. Asparagus was fine but the hollandaise was the worst we ever had. 5 layer dark chocolate cake was very god and huge. The crème Brule wasn't good at all. We will not return."

  • "Our group loved the entire meal! Sides are huge so share them. Meat was cooked to perfection and would melt in your mouth!"

  • "My wife had fish as well as her brother visiting from out of State. His spouse enjoyed the Pork Chop Dinner. Appetizers, bread and salads were good. Service was very good. Only problem was my steak. New York Strip was full of grissile (sp), and excessive amount of fat ingrained in the meat. It was more like a Sirloin than a New York Strip. It was cooked the way I like, however I could only eat about one third of it. Probably will not go back."
