Great place for people to gather, have some fun, listen to a live band playing, watch football, etc. Draws a great crowd and very entertaining. A fun place!

One of the most fun times you can have in deep South Florida. Music, dancing, cold beer, seafood and live music. A crowd of all ages. People watching a 10.

This is an interesting alternative to traditional dining on Marco Island, FL. The restaurant is rather rustic and and fun. This appears to be more of a local establishment with most seating on the outside. During the off season there are limited hours so be sure and check before going. We visited at 4:00 PM and there was a country... More

Had a great time, party of 6, watching the band, drinking cold beer, & having a few appetizers, not the best for food, but fun environment. Some had cheeseburgers and liked them; good onion rings, shrimp cocktails too.

Went on a Sunday as we were told best place to be. Glad it was off season. Probably would not be comfortable if I were really crowded. Not a lot of space and small restrooms. Beer warms up quick so highly recommend to get koozies from Fia's Island Gifts right next to the stage. Band was fantastic. Stayed all day.... More

This is a busy place especially on Sundays. The have live music and dancing outside. It's also a great place to be when they have the boat parades. As far as the food goes... it's not much to right home about. Chicken fingers, you know the frozen food kinda stuff heated up. I'm not crazy about but it's a fun... More

This is the "happenin' place" to be on Sundays. We arrived at 1:00 PM and it was impossible to find a place to park. We finally located a spot, went into the restaurant area and ordered hamburgs, fries, and beer. Our order was delivered almost immediately. The band was absolutely fabulous! No matter how young or old you are, you'll... More

I've been coming here for over 20 years and it never disappoints! So much fun! The live music and free spirit feeling attract young, old, rich, poor, and people who want to let loose any given Sunday afternoon! Will miss Stan, but his family seems to have carried on the great tradition! The music is always lively and it's a... More

Food and service was great. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the water. They had a singer for entertainment who changed into different costumes that reflected the song he was singing.

Kids, adults, dogs, etc - all handing out together enjoying a good band. Multiple bars, food, and music -what fun. The people watching is outstanding. It reminds me a bit for Flora-Bama but only one band. It is probably the most lively place in the Marco Island area.
