The food and service were excellent, and the ambiance of the restaurant in a nice new hotel setting was also excellent. We enjoyed pork chops and pot roast, and both were excellent. Desserts were very good too.

We stayed at the Inn at Elon this weekend and dined at the Mark both nights!! The staff was attentive. Our meals were flavorful, presentation lovely. We enjoyed after dinner cocktails outside by the bonfire. A special experience altogether!

Food was fine overall. Not a good value however. For the price I would have expected a better meal. So they either need to rebrand itself to be more casual and lower its prices or step up the quality of the food to justify the asking prices of the entrees.

The menu online looked good, so we decided to try this new place. I ordered a cocktail and it was forgotten. Waitress apologized. There was only one other table occupied besides ours, so not a busy day. When the waitress did bring out my drink she said ,"It may be flat as the club soda didn't bubble when I poured the drink". It was indeed flat. I sent it back and decided not to have a cocktail after all. Turkey Club was in need of more cranberry spread. It was very dry. I could see one slice of bread had a pink tint, but not enough spread to give flavor. Husband had shrimp and grits. He thought it was okay, but not as good as we get at other places. The atmosphere is very nice at this hotel. With time I hope they will improve.

Really enjoyed our dining experience at The Mark. We started in the bar area for cocktails before dinner, that was nice start. At dinner we had two tables - one table of 6 adults, the other table 4 students from Elon. Service and food to each table was excellent. I had the Pork Chop and thought it was delicious, I know everyone else enjoyed their meals as well. Overall think the entire team at The Mark worked hard to make our dining experience very nice.... I did have breakfast there the next morning - that too was great. We look forward to next time.

I must remark first about the overall service, stellar! The hostess, the wait staff, the bartender and all. Couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. Our food was all good and cooked to perfection. The entree choices were good and the breakfast menu, great too. Nothing to complain about. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I would consider this a very nice restaurant, not a high end restaurant. Decent by the glass wine list and good selection of liquor. We had an excellent creme brulee to end the night! I must add, to get this positive review during Covid should be considered. I'm sure they're operating alot differently then normal.

Dinner menu not very imaginative and a little pricey for what you get. Clearly the best dining near the University but they need to try harder. We were pressed for time and thought we would have to eat quick in bar. Bar menu had nothing we would want so passed

My only complaint, and I love The Mark, is the coffee. It honestly tastes like Folger's or something, not like gourmet coffee. Bitter aftertaste.

We were very disappointed with our meal. I ordered a Ceasar Salad with chicken. It was tiny. I was still very hungry when I left. The service was very slow for a lunch of salads and a sandwich, (even though there were hardly any guests) . The sandwich was bland. Overall the food was fair and the value for what we got was terrible.

The food was terrible, like something was microwaved from Aramark- and we went on a Sunday expecting the brunch menu but were told they were trying to perfect the lunch menu- so then take the brunch menu off your website. A place that’s trying to be fancy with ridiculous prices for what you actually get... please get it together. The service was good, the food and value a disaster.

Food had great flavor. Unfortunately all 3 dishes that were supposed to come out hot, came out tepid. (Soup, grilled asparagus, short rib pot roast). My wife ordered a drink to come with her dinner, yet it didn’t come till she was almost finished. We know it’s only been open for about month, but there are some kinks to work out. We will try it again and give it a second chance.

I presume they are still working out a few kinks - we had a GREAT server, Tricia, I believe was her name. Really well-made cocktails - kudos to whoever dreamed up the drinks and the bartender who executed. 2 of 3 entrees were good, though interestingly the sides didn't match the menu (?) and the 3rd was ok (just oddly made gnocchi). The decor was lovely and we look forward to returning. The manager asked how the meal was, but after I replied "fine", he turned away and didn't seem too concerned with hearing the rest lol. Might explain a few things.

This is a welcome upscale restaurant in the new hotel on Elon University Campus. I suspect you won't be able to get in on football Saturday's. Ambience is what you would expect inside a very nice hotel. Food was excellent. Server Mackenzie was very good. Prices are about right for this quality of food and service. The valet parking was welcome since there was a hard rain when we visited.

The Mark has a beautiful atmosphere and a friendly staff. The crab soup was amazing, the red wine blend was the best I have ever had - incredibly smooth. The meals were well proportioned and delicious! I don't think you'll be disappointed. My only complaint is that our service was slow, so if you are in a hurry, this is not the place for you... come here when you want to dine, not just eat a meal.

Our speed of service has only gotten more efficient since your initial visit one week after we’d opened. We hope to see you again soon!
