We are regulars at J. Mark’s and visit there about once a month. Their steaks, while not cheap, are always delicious. Their kitchen is always willing to customize a menu item so that you get what you really want. Cocktails are generously sized. But the real reason to go – and return – is the staff! Dani Hurd, the manager is awesome! She always makes us feel at home! She actually deserves a larger role in this company! Our waitress tonight was an energetic sprite named Lori, who was as sweet and professional as they come! Everything was checked upon delivery, Another staff member that made us feel like family! Go in there with a genuine smile on your face and I’m sure you will be as delighted as we always are!

My experience with J Mark has been almost exclusively from the bar. So this review would be specifically on the merits of:
barlocation and overall ambiance. With that said, I think J mark’s is a hidden gem. How is that? because J Mark’s is about 2 minutes off 95. Now think, how many spots for a quick happy hour drink are a couple minutes off 95. Literally 2 minutes? That aren’t a little scary to get out of your car at? It’s a happy spot that is cheerful and classy. Every time someone coming from up north or hurrying up 95 from the south says, “hey, wanna meet for a quick drink at happy hour? Any good spots in Pompano?”I say, there is one spot I know that will quench the thirst as good as any in this area.I’m not saying location from highway 95 is the only redeeming quality at all though.Its a popular spot actually. sometimes you cant even get a spot at the bar. Luckily there is high top tables nearby.It’s an upscale steak type place with an older clientele. It makes for a sophisticated bar with people drinking some good mixed drinks. The music is pleasant and the bar staff are quick to make whatever concoction you may have thought up. Me? It’s one of quick dirty martini spots. with the warm amber tones of this place, it fits in quite nicely. stop in. Maybe for a Steak or an appetizer. But in my opinion, at least stop in for a tumbler of libations when in the neighborhood.

We had not visited this restaurant for quite sometime – oh how nice it was to re-discover it again! We went in the busy season and there was a small wait – but it was worth waiting for! The Ahi was cold and very fresh, the Rib-eye steak was cooked perfectly and the drinks were just right.
Despite being a busy night the wait staff were polite and knowledgeable and power walked between tables In short? Worth the wait – Worth the money – we will be back very soon (only this time via Uber so we can enjoy more drinks!)

We don’t get to come here often, but I definitely will make it a point to return when we are in the area. We came post a Chuck E Cheese outing to grab some lunch and it was such a pleasant experience. From the moment we walked in, the hostesses were engaging and paid special attention to my kids. Our server and the manager were so attentive to our table and very accommodating, to us and our kids. Even when I made annoying requests about preparing my food, there was no hesitation to making sure it was done. The kids enjoyed their sliders and chicken tenders and the adults enjoyed our salad, tuna lettuce cups, and prime rib sliders very much. Our drinks were replenished without hesitation. All in all, everyone involved in our dining experience made sure we were happy and was super friendly about it. We celebrated my son’s birthday (again) with a slice of cake, which topped off a fantastic experience. And that says a lot, considering the potential of how things could have gone during a sit down meal with two little kids, after leaving Chuck E Cheese. Can’t wait to come back

Ah-MAZ-ing! Had just flown in from Detroit and stopped in for a late lunch. Service was impeccable. Food was fantastic!! Key Lime Pie was to die for. Can’t say enough about the Watermelon martini!! We are going back on Monday eve for dinner.
Update: Went back for dinner and it was just as fantastic! More shrimp. Filet Oscar. More pie. And another cappuccino. Tim and Danny are delightful and attentive. Such a great experience.
