Marco Polo is one of Marco's little gems! A throwback to the days when we were just a little sleepy town and you knew everyone. Tom has kept that feel with his always warm smiling greeting at the door, friendly and courteous servers, great entertainment and even the limo that is available for pickups and the occasional "oops, I think I have had one too many drinks" drop-offs (of course I have never needed it)! ;) The food and service can't be topped!!
