There are about 75 Marco Island restaurants listed in the phone book, and only 5 of them are fast food. So how does a vacationer decide where to go during a short stay on the island? We like to rely on the recommendations of our guests over the past several years, and would like to share them with you. We are sure there are many more good choices, but here are some you can count on.
On the north side of the island, the best breakfast restaurant is NeNe�s Kitchen with Hoots as a close second. Reservations are recommended for both, or be prepared to wait. There are several recommended fine dining restaurants, including Arturo�s,Verdi�s American Bistro, Marek�s Collier House and the Marco Polo Restaurant. Marco Polo will even provide complimentary limousine service to and from the Marco Island restaurant. The Snook Inn is a fun place serving local seafood inside and out. Cocomo�s Grill serves lunch and dinners in a family atmosphere, and has a late night menu as well. Many feel that Joey�s Pizzeria and Pasta House has the best pizza on the island. The Dolphin Tiki Bar and Caf�as a fun outdoor island dining venue featuring grouper sandwiches (as many restaurants in the area do).
On the south side of the island, you will find fine dining at DaVinci�s Ristorante, Kurrents in the Marriott Resort, and Sale E Pepe in the Marco Beach Resort. The Marriott, Hilton, and Marco Beach Resort offer drinks and dining on the beach while watching the beautiful sunsets. Captain Brien�s Seafood and Raw Bar offers local seafood, entertainment and a comedy club. You can take your days fishing catch to Captain Brien�s and they will cook it for you for the price of the side dishes to go with it. DaVinci�s and Captain Brien�s are just a short walk from our Abbeville Court home, and only a little further to reach the Hilton and the Marco Beach Resort.
On the east side of Marco Island, out San Marco Road to the town of Goodland, you will find the Little Bar Restaurant. It is known for its excellent local seafood, as well as dress-up or pajama party nights open to all whether in costume or not. Call ahead for party schedule. Stan�s Idle Hour Restaurant is next door to the Little Bar, and provides a Sunday afternoon show with live country bands.
If you have occasion to travel a half hour north to Naples, you will find many fine restaurants. The Dock at Crayton Cove has been recommended by most of our guests for waterfront dining.
