We are offering take out curb side service for those who would like to enjoy Mark's at home. Our wine and beer selections are also available for take out.

Always wonderful! Sat in a booth at bar and they did a great job at social distancing/ cleanliness/masks.
Started with a perfect wedge salad which we split. I had a small Felix cooked medium rare plus with melted blue cheese. Melted on my mouth! My husband had the pork chop with a wonderful sauce. Side of Brussels sprouts and nice wine list. Perfect service and everything was amazing!!

In town for the springs and wanted a nice, relaxing dinner after floating down the river all day. Mark's was perfect. We had a very attentive server who provided great recommendations and impeccable service. The food was absolutely delicious and we left quite full. Perfectly cooked steaks and lobster, as well as a divine chocolate dessert. I'm not much of a drinker but the Desert Rose was so tasty that I had to try the Diva as well, both were wonderful. We will certainly be back!

I went to Marks because I got an email that they were starting back their Happy Hour Special. I did find out you still have to go the bar area & there are high tops that provide social distancing if you get their early enough.

The happy hour menu is DEFINITELY smaller than it use to be but we enjoyed the Old Fashions, they were VERY good!

We went ahead and decided to order dinner & it was AMAZING. The steaks were perfect and the salads were perfect size and yummy. We shared a twice backed potato, it was the weakest part of the dinner. I would recommend trying something else. IT WAS HUGE though and easily shareable.

The staff were polite & very attentive. It was not nosy at all & a nice relaxing dinner even though in the "bar" area. They have outdoor seating but you cant sit out there and get the Happy Hour menu. Honestly for now, the Happy Hour Menu is BEST for drinks.

But I would DEFINITELY recommend and go back. WONDERFUL steaks & staff!!!

It was great except our waiter was a little too casual, inexperienced, and didn’t know how to handle the wine properly. It felt like she should be working at Friday’s not a $50 steakhouse where I feel a waiter should be well versed in what specials are available, the wine list, varietals, how they compliment the food, etc.

The food was stelllar, but unfortunately the casual service really stood out as awkward and made the experience much less special.

Good food good price not much more to it. Services was what you would expect at that level of dining. Very attentive and kind but not to intrusive. We had the delmonico and the petite fillet both where cooked as we asked and tender. The delmonico was a little to salty for my taste but not to the the point I sent it back. overall very good experience

Perfect place for our anniversary celebration. We got reservations without trouble. Were seated as soon as we got there in a booth as requested. The food is wonderful, better than any other restaurant we go to in Gainesville. It is our go-to restaurant when we want to treat ourselves to the best.

We had a wonderful meal at Mark's. We learned that the decorative back bar is made of fire mahogany and was hauled from Key West to Gainesville. The bartenders were skilled and friendly in a quiet way. How nice to have white tablecloths (yes, cloth and more than one!) and servers wearing white shirts and bow ties. They are well trained and their attendance was noticeable and rare these days. We met the general manager (I didn't get his name) who only had to deal with our positive comments. Saving the best for last- food was great. Steak tasty and perfectly done. Lyonnaise potatoes- to die for. Mark's isn't inexpensive but it's worth every penny.
