LOVE IT! Best in Fort Lauderdale! Beautful setting on the intracoastal. Friendly staff and pretty easy to get in without reservations.
Family owned business, personalized attention from Mrs. Gilbert herself. Very clean... They have the most delicious hamburgers...check out the menu. I travel here from Miami, just to eat here. Excellent place!
My husband threw up so bad a couple of hours after having lunch. The meat has a foul smell and mashed potato is cold.
This is a gem of a restaurant. We ate alfresco and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. My entree was beautifully prepared. The chef took time to stop by our table. Waitresses were so nice. Very good experience. I recommend trying the Village Cafe.
I have always enjoyed dining at J Marks. They have a fairly diverse menu; Pasta dishes, Asian inspired entrees, steaks and salads. It's clean. The decor is contemporary and the clientele seems to be down to Earth and enjoying the experience.
We have been here maybe 30 times. Easy valet parking right at the door, great food. Attentive wait staff. Cool signature drinks if you ask your bartender and outside there is a great patio off the bar with a fire pit. Five stars all around.
We had a problem with the manager tonight. We actually just found this restaurant this week and had a good dinner a couple nights ago. We seen they offered lobster on a special for 15.99 on Tuesday and Thursday so we decided to come again tonight. We got the app for Quarterdeck also and it stated a special for tonight for 1/2 price appetizers with any entrée. We asked before we ordered if we could use the discount for the appetizers with the lobster and our waitress said yes. When we were done and the waitress came with our check she said her manager would not allow us to get the lobster for the advertised price because we were using the 1/2 price appetizer. We tried to discuss this with our waitress saying we asked first but she insisted her manager wouldn't . So as unbelievable as it sounds we were charged 20.99 for the lobster even though everyone there was getting them for the menu price of 15.99. I'm not cheap but I do hate to feel like I was charged too much. Well we went from new loyal customers with the app on our phone to never going back to that Restaurant.
Overall the place is very cool to sit in, but sometimes the servers seem snooty. We enjoy the food and the cocktails, sometimes it gets a bit too crowded with singles looking to mingle and the bar is a bit packed for a couple to enjoy. I really do like their lettuce wedge.
Worst meal I've had at any restaurant in a long time! I ordered the country fried steak with sausage gravy. The "steak" was a piece of pressed, formed meat of some type. I expected something better for $12. The little bit of gravy wasn't as tasty as canned from a restaurant supply store and not as good as I've had in a school cafeteria. The biscuit which was $2.50 extra was split, heavy, and extremely dry. The grits as the side dish were good. When I spoke with the manager, she said she'd never had a complaint about my dish in 14 years and was obviously not happy that I compared it to an inexpensive frozen dinner. However, it was obvious to all who saw my plate that it was not a real country fried steak!!! The manager did take off the biscuit and part of the meal price from my tab. My friend had the Philly Cheese Steak which was ok but fries that were too salty to eat, and she adds salt to everything!!! Even though my friend had been there twice before, I will not return!!
Shame on Bokampers they advertise a full rack of baby back ribs for a certain price which is fair and the food is good. But there are 16 ribs to a full rack and when three of us ordered, there were less and when I asked the manager about it, he said they do it by the weight. HOW much does a full rack of baby back ribs weigh, thats not what they have on the menu, they only say a full rack. The manager did nothing for the table but he did agree with me. So should you pay for a full rack and get less, should you pay less than your bill because of that ? The food is good but they will never see me again. Shame on you.
