Marcus Grill, 93 years and counting..... The origin of Marcus dates all the way back to 1929 when Charles Marcus invented the original burger in Detroit. In the city's spirit of innovation he built an enormous grill in the center of his diner, stamped burgers into a special shape, sautéed the all steak patty to fit in a hot dog bun. Marcus Grill is known not only for their burgers, but the bona fide Polish platters that are made fresh daily. Mastering homemade stuffed cabbage, city chicken, potato pancakes & pierogies where the dough is made in house & by hand. We offer special homemade soups, sauces and gravies that are worth coming back for. The experience of a warm welcome and personal touch has always been vital within the Marcus tradition. Time travel with us and enjoy the unforgettable secret recipe of the historical Marcus Burger as well as the authentic old world style Polish cuisine. Welcome to Marcus Grill.

    Wow! The perch piccata was amazing! Polish food was so so good, just like grandma’s kitchen, but in an open and comfy restaurant. Bar was great. Tables in restaurant well spaced and well ventilated with high ceilings. Cabbage soup was THE BEST. We drove 30 miles to try their food, and we will be back.

    Requested a table on the bar side for our party of 6. Instead was put on the loud restaurant side in a large booth. This was not a convenient option seeing as how two of my party were my over 70 parents and scooting through a booth was difficult for them. The booth was hot and sticky and uncomfortable.

    My two siblings and I hosted my Aunt and Uncle from Traverse City. We wanted a comfortable, bright and inviting place with good food. Marcus Grill was the PERFECT place! My uncle is my deceased father's brother and reminds us all so much of our Dad. Close our eyes and it was like sharing time with him (big heart!) Anyway, back to the Review... Donna was the BEST server! In fact, I felt like we were at her home as she served us home cooked meals and truly enjoyed the special time with us. We'll all be back very soon!

    Food was good but extremely busy and it seemed like they over booked. Only had 1 server working the whole back room. Had to wait over 20 min to get drinks. They forgot one whole meal order so one person in our party didn’t even eat. By the time they brought the burger out, everyone was done so we took it home for carry out. They did comp the burger though. Maybe next time the restaurant shouldn’t bite off more then they can chew and things would prob be more organized.

    Staff was rude. Hostess never created us. Once I said I had a reservation she said I’ll show you to your table. Walked into the dinning room and she pointed to a table and said there it is. Waitress never checked on us. Manager came by and asked how good was. My daughter didn’t like her dinner at all She told her the soup was great but the meal was not. Manager said no one ever complains and walked away. Atmosphere is not the best at all. Has potential but feels like a cafeteria. Not impressed at all.

    We eat here quite a bit so it was disappointing to see the smaller portions. Had the perch piccata which is normally very good but this time the fish was a little dry and hard to cut with a fork. Again the portion was noticeably smaller. It also took quite some time for our food to arrive, much longer than normal. It wasn't very busy at the time so perhaps it was just a bad day in the kitchen. The chicken kabob was also dry with smaller portion.

    We were there there for a Birthday Brunch. We where seated at the corner of the restaurant in a round booth by a blond waitress (name escapes me) who was terrific. We had 6 people in the booth and she did a great job serving us, and took our picture.

    Ordered the breaded porkchops that were on the Specials sheet. They were pork loins - not chops and so much gravy on them, you couldn't taste the breading and there was no crisp. Our server was very good.

    The food was amazing!! I had the Marcus combo and my husband had the Short Ribs, both were delicious. We got the Mascarpone cheesecake cheesecake for desert which was so yummy. Our server was wonderful, very friendly and knowledgeable on all the menu items. The fall decor looked so nice, very comfortable seating too. Definitely will be going back, my new fav!!
