Not what I expected....

We were told that Marker 8.5 is a really nice place to eat. We were surprised when we pulled up on how little it is. We went in and found a place to sit. It was nice sitting out in the screened porch area overlooking the bay. The food was very good!! No air conditioning and it was really hot... read more

Marker 8.5 is like going back in time, very relaxing and great food, especially the fish, very fresh. One of our favourites are the spicy buffalo prawns. Have to say every time we go our server Mo is just the best and what a character she makes us feel special and just can wait to be back - Next Week... More

Found this quaint little place one afternoon while we were checking out the area. It was my Son's 20th birthday and our server Mo was absolutley wonderful! The food was outstanding as well. My husband's birthday was the next day and she told us to come back and she would have a special dessert for my boys! We had family... More

The place is just a local dive however the seafood is quite good. The service was fair at best and they were out of all the white wines on their list (all 4 of them).

We stopped for dinner at Marker 8.5 primarily because most of the other restaurants on Goodland were closed. It's on the waterfront and with the background music has a nice, beachy feel to it. The chef suggested the stacked Yellowtail, which sounded strange, but was excellent. My son had the seafood combo, and it was also great. I visit Marco... More

We had an excellent breakfast there on a warm morning in mid July. It's a small place right on the water in Goodland FL, just outside Marco Island. The staff was very friendly, and the place was clean as a whistle. Can't comment on lunch or dinner, but the menu looked impressive.

We were driving around on a rainy day and came across this place. Very casual atmosphere, food was great. Loved the grouper poor boy. Kids loved the cheese burgers. If you are looking for a local, south florida casual bar and resturant this place is it. We loved it.

We had a sweet old lady wait on us. She was no stranger to the Florida sun. A real island native. Goodland is in its own little corner. The food was average. We were the only ones in the place. Our lovely waitress appeared to be intoxicated and we were treated to the conversation of a few locals at the... More

The food was excellent! The atmosphere was something you need to experience after a few hours out on the boat. We hope to go back again before we leave.

Last day of my holiday, breakfast at Marker 8.5. The place is a typical American restaurant, close to the water. Breakfast is OK. Service not so... Prices are also OK. Nothing special just descent food.
