Mark's Prime Steak House - Ocala Ratings and Reviews
Only our second visit impossible not to be satisfied at Mark's! I had the Crab Bisque App so tasty with chunks of crab! Not heavy at all and so full of flavor! Wife had the Shrimp & Petite Filet and I had the Bone in Filet! Both were excellent! There is a lower priced Chateau Ste Michelle Merlot that tastes like you should paying much more for this one! Debra is an excellent server and was so attentive despite the room filling up with patrons very rapidly! Your water glass never goes much below a couple inches empty from top before refill occurs! So much attention to detail this eatery knows how to do it right!
Our second time at Mark's Prime. We were cordially greeted at the door and immediately seated. Our server, Adam, was very knowledgeable and outstanding in his service. My husband ordered the Filet and I had the Bleu cheese topped sirloin. Both were delicious and cooked to our specifications. The sides were very good (twice baked potato and green bean almondine). It was my husband's birthday and at the end of the meal we were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary dessert. All in all, a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back again and again.
This was our first visit to Mark's Prime. We were seated at a table they refered to as "Grand Central Station Table" that sat in the middle of a smaller room. Considering we were there at 5:30 with a reservation and the place was mostly empty that we would have been seated in a less high traffic location. We ordered Shrimp cocktail, crab bisque, and ceasar salad to share, all excellent. Dinner my wife ordered a Filet special with 2 grilled shrimp and asparagus. The filet was ordered medium but came out closer to well and they had to remake, but they were apologetic and the new Filet was perfect and delicious. I did the Delmonico med rare that was perfect. Sides lobster mac and twice baked, both great.
Outstanding experience The food was delicious and plentiful, the service was wonderful, our waiter was very good he in fact exceeded our expectations including making a special dessert for our anniversary. This dessert was absolutely amazing. All in all I couldn't find fault with anything about our experience, and I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
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....
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.
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 were celebrating my husbands 79th birthday....fabulous food and drinks...and then they surprised us with a delicious free dessert,of course with attendant candles (not 79 but lucent)...we chose the bar area and it was fun atmosphere..we'll be back...thanx all staff and management..m&p
My wife, 8.5 month old daughter, and I came from Memphis, TN to visit my folks and grandmother who live in The Villages, FL. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
