Looking for dinner, we were drawn in by the sign 'Grill and Pasta'. We were not disappointed. Way too many great choices for one meal. First choice has to be the Fish Chowder and rolls. This is the 'spoon standing upright in the bowl' kind....Delicious. Main course was the Fettuccini Alfredo loaded with chicken, broccoli, and mushrooms. Large serving. No dessert. My philosophy is if there is room for dessert, then I didn't have enough dinner. My friend had the pan seared scallops with mashed potatoes. Another excellent choice.More

The restaurant was very busy but everyone was very nice. They were due to close soon but did not turn anyone away. The young man who seated us was very professional and polite & our waitress was friendly & quick. The food was great too...(scallops & chicken schnitzel) Great service, much appreciated.More

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat and after looking at reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try Marcos…..so glad we did! We had the sweetest waitress that gave us wonderful dinner recommendations, my husband had the ribs and I had...the chicken schnitzel! Both were delicious 😋 Then we ordered dessert! He had the caramel sundae and I had the last slice of peanut butter cheesecake! It was to die for!! Thanks for a wonderful dinner experience.More

Came here in search of a good pizza. We found one! Ordered the 12" deluxe vegetarian (1/2 with added sausage for the meat lover). Pizza was a home run, but the service was a bit tentative. While it was busy, and while we were attended...to occasionally, a glass of wine we ordered was never delivered. Waitress forgot. Plus the noise level was at a fairly high decibel level until the very end of our meal when most everyone had paid and left.More

I always ask the locals where to eat and the three folks I approached all said Marco's so naturally...It does have pretty much an Italian ambiance and menu but they do have fish on the menu and when in Nova Scotia...the very helpful waitress suggested...haddock. Not wanting more fries I aske about potato options and she suggested mash. She also suggested to have the fish pan fried which was a great suggestion. Thoroughly delicous meal. They don't stay open particularly late (depends on customers) so get there by 6ish. East street parking. Serve err and wine.More

Very good food. Great attentive service. Nice views of Water St if you get the window! We loved all the plates here. Our group of 8 shared a lot of them and we're all pleased. Waitress very friendly and helpful with suggestions. We will return!

We had an evening reservation for a family birthday celebration. Considering how very busy the wait staff were it was a reasonable amount of time for appetizers to be served and our meals to follow. Our waitress, Cindy, was very pleasant and attentive and she...was instrumental in making our visit a very nice experience. The food was plentiful an delicious. We enjoyed the bruschetta, shrimp as well as grilled chicken, haddock and clams. We will most certainly be back as this was a very positive experience. It is important to mention that the pizza is unique and delicious as it has been for many years and the seafood lasagna comes highly recommended.More

We just wondered in with no reservations, they were very accommodating. Even though the sign said, they are short staffed, so please be patient.....our food seemed to come out fast and very tasty. I think the service was excellent and they have two very large...groups as well. Great job, we'll be backMore

This was near our AirBnB so walking after a long day in the car was appealing. They were short handed so total sympathy with that.Ordered pasta w/ meat balls and Brushchetta. Both of the dishes were awful. Only redeeming thing was the sorta garlic bread....The bruschetta was a glob of tomato sauce, no herbs, no cheese. I’d have been thrilled for Ragu. It was an overwhelming tomato taste with zero appeal. Pasta w/ meatballs was similar in taste but the meatballs were gross. Half of the meatball was edible, the other part like. a brick. Server was attentive but the food was terrible. So done!More

My husband an I went in for date night and were sat at a 2 person table, my husband ordered a 15in pizza which wasn't going to fit on our table and our extremely delightful waitress went above and beyond and hunted down another table...to add to ours while a large party was also going on. She was so nice and a complete breath of fresh air. The food looked and tasted picture perfect. Thanks for a wonderful eveningMore

The Restaurant had nice atmosphere The wait staff were excellent and the food arrived in a reasonable time frame The quality of the food was extremely poor My wide had a Lobster sandwich, price did not match quality and close to non existent I had...a pizza ? I do believe at 70 years of age it may have been The Worse Pizza i ever had and that would include those frozen cardboard ones from the supermarkets Toppings were like soup and they used a combination of Mozza and Cheddar We won’t be backMore

Tonight we went to Marco’s it was clean, the atmosphere was good, and the staff was pleasant. The problem is I ordered Spaghetti Carbonara and was served something very different. The main flavour in a carbonara is bacon and it did say that on the...menu, there was absolutely no bacon in this dish it seemed like they put red peppers in it so something would be red. The dish was not bad but it wasn’t Carbonara. When I asked the server about it she didn’t quite know what to do. The coconut cream pie was very good though.More
