Nice menu; delicious food. Ordered chopped salad and French onion for appetizer. Soup was warm- not hot enough to melt cheese thoroughly. Had to ask for bread service and glad we did because it was a French loaf, served hot and delicious. Server was attentive and made the birthday “ boy” feel special- ended night by bringing a chocolate dessert, with candle to make a wish.

Was excellent the first time we went and ok the second. Calamari was over cooked this time and so was the steak.

Everything was outstanding. My only comment would be the potatoes au gratin that were supposed to have jalapenos were undetectable. A selection of craft beer would be nice.

The service was excellent and very attentive.
The steak was excellent and tender cooked to perfection.
The sides are large enough to shy

The way your celling is so high it is hard with a cochlear hearing person to hear the voices go up not at the person. But we will come back.

The food at best was average, twice backed potato was borderline cold. The restaurant was very cold and uncomfortable. The waiter forgot my wife's salad and my side order of mushrooms. For the amount of money I spent to take my friends out for diner, I was not at all impressed ! I will not be returning to Mark's Prime Steak House! There are much better restaurants at a more reasonable price in our area. I'm sorry to sound so negative, but I'm just giving you my honest opinion. The food and service is just not a good value.

This was my first encounter eating at Mark's Prime Steak House and everyone in my party genuinely enjoyed their meals along with the First-Class service. Our server was extremely attentive, courteous, knowledgeable and had a wonderful sense of humor. I have eaten at Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa about 10 or 11 times, but I must admit that the Filet I had at Mark's was the most tender and delicious Filet I have ever had, not to mention the sides like the Risotto. I will be eating at Mark's Prime Steak House in Ocala again.

Food was fabulous. Waiter was excellent - great service, personality and made our night a lot of fun. Celebrating our friends anniversary and my husband’s birthday. They were very nice to provide a very tasty dessert for each couple to help celebrate these events. Steak was done perfect and was delicious.

Items are way over priced. Soup was cold, chicken was dry, Baked potatoe was slightly warm and tasteless. Can't figure out why it is so popular?

12/28 Birthday dinner. Waitress (don’t recall her name - was awesome. Steaks were great , fried lobster appetizer was amazing. Great experience- just a little pricey with drinks added. Definitely would recommend

Overall, our experience was excellent. The setting at Christmas was lovely and charming and the location was perfect. My husband was very disappointed with his NY strip and said it might have been better ordered at rare or med rare. He ordered it as medium. Pretty chewy. Unfortunately when he remembers having NY strip that was melt in your mouth delicious, this piece just didn’t come up to his standard. My meal was great as I had the petite filet. The side dishes were generous and could feed 2-3 people easily. The crusty hot bread was outstanding! Our waiter was wonderful. For the price of the steaks they should have been of the highest standard.

Pros-very good ambience 2-booth in main dining room very comfortable 3-The waiter Adam was excellent.4-the complimentary dessert for our anniversary is a nice touch and very delicious.
Cons-The price on your internet menu much less than the printed menu. Not good.2-
No dress code. Men seated in the main dining room in shorts.3-New York strip very dry and no taste.3-Brandy peppercorn sauce served in metal gooseneck, something I would expect in a dinner.4- the lyonnaise potatoes very poor presentation and good but not great. I would not order this dish again. The restaurant is overrated and overpriced. I would not return or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The food at Mark's is excellently prepared, served & delicious. The food portions are huge, so either bring a large appetit or be prepared to bring food home. The atmosphere is the best in Ocala. Mark's always delivers an outstanding meal & we are thankful to have them in Ocala.

This was our third visit to Mark‘s prime. The first two were a pleasure so we continue to bring friends. Last night was my birthday, no big deal but I did call ahead for a quiet table and maybe a dessert for my birthday. The dessert came with the check. They forgot. As far as dinner was concerned all four of our steaks were over cooked two of them were sent back, yes we did get two taken off the bill which we didn’t ask for it but nonetheless it was very unacceptable. I question whether those steaks were really prime. My wedge salad of iceberg bacon tomato you could tell the salad was made ahead of time the bacon was burnt I did not eat it. Last but not least two servers talk back to us when we talked about our steak one told my husband how to cut his steak the other one said my black and blue or worse, raw was how they cook it, I have been in the fine dining service for 40 years again, this is very unacceptable I wasn’t looking for anything special but I certainly was looking for better than that. Last but not least the server was rushed, unprofessional and had a care less attitude No, we will not return nor will I recommend.

It took forever for us to be waited on, the waiter seemed to have a more important table to make sure there were taken care of first. Steak was overcooked and the waiter never came back to as us how our food was so we just dealt with it. Manager never came by our table either but 2 different managers went to that “more important table” to ask how their service was. Overall bad experience and definitely not worth the money!

We chose to celebrate our honeymoon dinner at Mark’s and it was fantastic! Daniel was our server and did an amazing job explaining the menu to us and helping us select delicious meals and drinks ❤️ They even surprised us with a magnificent dessert to celebrate us and end our meal perfectly! We will definitely be back and plan on making it our anniversary dinner spot for many years to come!

We are from Atlanta, visiting family for Thanksgiving. We were very impressed with the service and delicious food at Marks. The flash fried lobster appetizer and colossal shrimp cocktail were perfect. Our salads and entrees were spot on- filet cooked to temp and sea bass, exceptional. The perfect 10 martini was light, refreshing and not too strong.

We were greeted by the "manager of first impressions" with a rather gruff "Last name on your reservation?". No good evening, no hello. Our waiter was unconcerned and clearly unhappy with his predicament of "being stuck in Ocala". The overly charred filet was served on a bare plate too hot to touch, with no garnish or anything to make it look appetizing. The steak was cooked to the correct temperature (aside from the charring) and the sides and bread were fine. The waiter came back with the check and a free dessert, put it on the table, said happy birthday and walked off. After dinner, we moved to the bar for a drink. The bartenders were very nice, but were twice interrupted by the "manager of first impressions" who was clearly upset with them and let them know - within our sight and earshot. We spent about $450 and could have had a much more pleasant experience with better food in at least three other restaurants in Ocala, which we will certainly do next time.
