Loved it & we will be back
We had three different meals and everything was great--steak,fish & pork.
Creamed corn was tasty as well as the garlic potatoes.
It was chilly inside so we sat outside (comfortable chairs)
It was a great way to celebrate my birthday.

Outstanding place to conduct a business dinner. I have been coming to Mark's Steakhouse for 4 years in a row for my anual business dinner with an Ocala client and as always Mark's Steakhouse comes through.

A Classy Evening
My friend and I just wanted a quiet girls' night out with a great atmosphere. We had a nice private atmosphere that we could enjoy. They had a fabulous wine list with comparable prices. The steak was incredibly tender and the spinach and asparagus were cooked to perfection. We will definitely come here again.

the only thing that went wrong
the only thing that went wrong was the waiter accidentally put a bottle of $68.00 wine on our bill and I didn't catch it till after he had already ran my card....still haven't got credit back on my card....

We had a wonderful dining experience with a fantastic server, Orlando. We will certainly return to Mark's and request to be seated in Orlando's station. The meal, service, ambiance, just everything was outstanding.

We're very frequent patrons
We're very frequent patrons of Mark's Prime in Ocala; however, the service on this visit wasn't up to their usual excellence. Slow. Waiter forgot to order appetizers and later he mistakenly topped off half-full glass of wine with bottled water (didn't realize it until I took a drink). That was the end of the evening, so we didn't even mention it.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 11 year wedding anniversary. Mark's was recommended by a friend and I am glad we chose to eat there.

Mark's is always a good choice.
Mark's is always a good choice. Great steak and great sides. Pretty good steakhouse for any city, but tops by far in Ocala.

A Special Night With a Special Lady
I was wanting a special evening for my 90 year old mother on Mother's Day. Mark's fit the bill! My Mom is still talking about the wonderful time and the fabulous food. I suppose the best words I can use to describe Mark's is...... Very Special.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had flowers waiting at our table and enjoyed a great meal!
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love Mark's. Nice atmosphere, great food. The staff is always well versed and provides excellent service. Whether you dine outside, in the main dining room or in the lounge, it's always a fantastic experience. They also have a spacious back room for
group dining and/or entertaining. It remains on our favorite list for enjoying a few adult beverages and appetizers with friends, a business meeting/luncheon or a romantic dinner for two.

A classic you can count on.
Mark's is what it is... A classic steak house. And they do it all right. Knowledgeable and attentive staff and food prepared correctly! No cutting corners, but the price reflects that. When I made my reservation online, I added that it was my significant other's birthday. No mention by any of us all evening, dinner was great, and when we asked for the check, our server came out with a lovely complimentary dessert with a candle and addressed my beau by name with birthday wishes. Well done. The dining room could stand a makeover (or at least a update) -- but like I said, Mark's is what it is -- a classic steakhouse! And if you're local, a place you can count on if you've got important guests or a special occasion.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
5 star for this fine dining, upscale restaurant. Perfect for our special occasion.
6/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A fantastic evening in the celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary! Attention to detail in making our evening special was remarkable.

Excellent, foods and service
Excellent, foods and service was so worth it and we love the valet parking. Only place in Ocala to go and enjoy. The manager Cindy is the BEST ever, absolutely love Marks's.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very relaxed half round booths made me feel comfortable. The dim light and classic music created a great ambiance. There were multiple staff members who came to help us for anything we needed. The food was great and my Delmonico was juicy and tender. I was just out for a romantic evening with my wife and they helped make it a perfect night.

Mark's Prime is consistent
Mark's Prime is consistent -- the steaks are always delicious, served hot and cooked correctly to what was ordered, the service is attentive but not obtrusive, and the atmosphere is private and elegant. The seafood dishes are also excellent. I make it a point to go to Mark's at least once a month, when I want great food, great service, and to have a relaxed dinner with my husband where we can really talk.

Ocala's Best Steakhouse
We have enjoyed Mark's Prime on a number of occasions. Generally very good steaks ( whatch for overcooking), excellent sea food, appitizers, and salads. A bit Pricey but not out of line for the food quality, wine list , and service.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM

consistently delivers in the quality of their prime steaks/salads and accompanying dishes. Servers have full knowledge of the menu and kitchen and are attentive and friendly without being intrusive.
Dessert: he best chocolate cake around.

First time there and really liked it. our waiter, Matthew,I think, was so great! Went for a birthday dinner so was a little too pricey for us for every week but would definitely go again.

Great eating in Ocala
Go to Mark's Prime! You will not be disappointed. Incredible food (especially the Pork chop), great atmosphere, Fantastic service. Mark's hits the nail on the head in every category. It's a little pricey but well worth it. Date night, Special occasion, or just a great meal...Mark's has it all.

Food was overall good. The steaks are a bit too peppery and priced on the high side.
Lobster mac was our group's favorite and most memorable dish.
Service was outstanding!
We would probably return for a chop salad and lobster mac!

Wife's Special Birthday
My wife and I had been wanting to check Mark's out for months so when my wife's birthday arrived, she requested Mark's. It was a total delight. Special welcome at the door, Carlos was our waiter who was very helpful, knowledgeable, and recommended some of the restaurant's favorite specialities. The steaks were excellent, flavorful and soooo tender. At the end of the meal, Carlos brought my wife a surprise birthday mousse dessert with Happy Birthday Sandi written on the plate. Totally first class.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Best Ever
We had a wonderful dining experience. This was the second time we have been there and it was even better than the first. It was a special celebration and they made it extra special. The food was excellent. Seafood Bisque is the best I have ever tasted and the service was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better place to go for my Father's 78th birthday. Can't wait to have an occassion to go back again.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
THE RESTAURANT IS VERY EXPENSIVE
THE RESTAURANT IS VERY EXPENSIVE BUT THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS GREAT. IT IS A PLACE YOU CAN'T GO TO EVERY WEEK BECAUSE OF THE EXPENSE BUT ONCE A YEAR IT IS WORTH IT FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION.
IT IS A PLACE I WOULD GO TO MORE OFTEN IF I COULD AFFORD IT.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was recommended by my boss.
Was recommended by my boss. Took some clients and it was a great dinner. Everyone enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The main comment whn we left by all was that this was like dinning at a steakhouse in a major city!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have always enjoyed this restaurant. Probably the best steaks in town. We brought some friends who had just moved here and they loved the place.

Ocala's only gem
This is the only nice restaurant that I have come across in Ocala. The service and atmosphere ranks up with national Zaggot rated restaurants. However, the food still needs some work. My filet was dry and lacked seasoning and the steamed broccoli was bland. The menu contains creative dishes, but the quality of food is satisfactory. They either need a new Chef or a new supplier to get their food to match their service, atmosphere and prices.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Yet Again
My husband & I always have the same dinner...petit filet for me and larger one for him...with salads and a generous side each, a vast amount of delicious food. The steaks have always been done perfectly and I like mine rarer than rare, which is sometimes a challenge but not at Mark's. This time we both got them with the Bleu Cheese crust and the plates arrived sizzling and fragrant. My side was creamed spinach and my husband had the twice baked (or stuffed, can't remember exactly), both were perfect. A nice bottle of Toscana Antinori made it a lovely meal.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a group of six celebrating a retirement. The food and wine were excellent. The service was excellent and our waiter, Enos, was superb. We would highly recommend Mark's to anyone. Just be aware that this is a reasonably expensive restaurant, especially for the Ocala area. The only problem we had was that the after-dinner Scotch was served with an ice-ball which was not my preference. It should be made more clear that this ice ball is the default serving style for those of us that prefer our Scotch neat.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my parents for their 70th birthday. Food was fantastic, service was great, I would reccommend it to anyone.

Simply said, "It is the BEST!" We enjoy going every chance we get.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The booth for two and the wonderful food and service make this a great place to celebrate important dates.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I once decided to eat at Marks "just because" the food and wine is fantastic. However, the Mark's in Gainesville is better because it is quiet. The Marks in Ocala is very noisey and it is hard to hear people at your table sometimes.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a Gem!
So glad we found this restaurant. We took my mother here to celebrate her birthday. The food was cooked perfectly and delicious, and the service was terrific. They brought her a special dessert, and she loved it. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Ocala!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Mark's is the place for fine food. Pricing is on par with a Ruth's Chris but they have more variety on their menu. Service is very good but the food is excellent, always cooked as requested and served hot. Go and enjoy a night with friends or a special occasion, you will not be disappointed.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and good service
Great food and good service describe this restaurant. It is It is a little loud but the food is worth putting up with the noise. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys good steak and sea food.
