We visit Mareks every time we are in the area. This time was no exception, the meal was excellent. I had blackened Mahi and my husband has stick beef stir fry. We took cheesecake home to eat later !!!!!! Service great as usual. Also tried the berry crush which was delicious.

I enjoyed Marek's and hope to go again. I was solo and had a nice meal at the bar, pate and beef short ribs. The bartender was very friendly and competent. The menu is varied (fish as well as meat). It is a quiet enough place to be able to have a conversation. I recommend it.

Nice atmosphere, good service and a lot of menu items. They are a bit on the high end on prices but worth a try. Living on Marco we would go there only for special occasions but not every week.

My second time at Marek's. The food this visit was not as good as my first visit. I'm wondering if it's because it's the end of season. The appetizer was an order of mussels. While the mussels were good I didn't like the creme sauce. Would have preferred a garlic broth. I ordered the blackened Mahi with a side order... More

Another great meal at Marek's this evening. This is our third visit this vacation. We come to Marco Island three or four times a year and this restaurant is always one of our favourite stops. A real treat is the chicken curry with poppadums - quite a rarity in SW Florida! This is a friendly, family run business that we... More

This restaurant compares well to other fine dining establishments. Live music a couple of days a week, along with an experienced staff help maintain it among the go-to places on Marco Island. I had the bacon wrapped crab-stuffed shrimp and certainly enjoyed my meal.

We love this place. It's consistently good and continues to carry favorites, such as the shrimp curry, liver and onions with bacon, and always has fresh, nicely prepared fish as a special. Last night it was Pompano. The service is friendly and that counts for a lot. Last night, Sarah, steered us in the right direction on a couple of... More

My husband had the cottage pie, I had the swordfish special. Both were great. Duncan playing acoustical guitar in the background. Perfect evening in paradise! Thanks Marek's for a wonderful night.
