As a frequent visitor to Pt Aransas over the years, I've seen several restaurants come and go. But Marcel's has always been here offering excellently prepared food at very reasonable prices. On a recent cold December evening, we ordered the white board specials, wild boar ragout and the grouper fish. The meals always include a choice of soup or salad, the latter with homemade dressing. My salad was designed with several artfully arranged ingredients. My wild boar ragout tasted absolutely divine, served with roasted squash and spaetzle. My companions attested to the freshness of their grouper dishes. We requested and were seated in the quiet breezeway portion of the restaurant on a table dressed elegantly with white linens. The wine list included selections for every budget. The owner-chef, Marcel, a native German, is always at work in the kitchen preparing not only authentic German cuisine, but fresh seafood dishes. Our waitress was a family member who provided excellent service. There is nothing not to enjoy about this restaurant which, after dining here for several years, I heartily recommend.

My family and I have been dining at Marcel's since it opened in the 1990's. We quickly became devoted to it and returned for birthdays, anniversaries, even Thanksgiving dinner here. The quality of the food and wine is always excellent. The Clark family fondly recalls Thanksgiving 2001 -- Marcel's first time to cook turkey and all the American trimmings -- a resounding success. The choices reflect an Austrian/German influence with continental flair added to steak, seafood, chicken and pork dishes. The prices may be a little high, but they are completely worth it for the divine food, prompt, smooth service, and the ambiance. We will keep coming back as long as Marcel's is open!

This is a Geman restaurant that also sells seafood dishes, beef, salads. Also serve many German beers and wine .We went based on the reviews; not a restaurant we would normally choose. We knew the prices were a bit high before we went, but it was a special occasion. Great decision.

We ate at Marcel's again the other night and as usual the food was fantastic. You just can't beat this place. Wonderful German food and seafood. The salads and soup are to-die for.
