The setting is very cute, right on the water and a very friendly laid back atmosphere and staff. The issue is the food...simply bad. Pretty much everything fried and the grilled fish that we found on the menu with a caesar salad was totally bland, slightly burned and undercooked. The salad was awful. Suggestion - go there for a drink... More

Stopped in for lunch during the week. I had the Oyster Basket and my DW had the Shrimp Basket. Both were done perfectly...not overcooked like most restaurants do. A keeper !!!

Drove by this place in goodland and decided to stop. What a fantastic atmosphere, food, and service. I sat on the porch and watch all the wildlife as I ate my fried shrimp basket. What a wonderful place. Definitely recommend this place. I will be back to the marker 8.5 frequently!!

Stopped here for cocktails on a Sunday with a group of friends. They have a nice screened-in dining area if you want to be outside. We had been hoping it was a pig roast day, but it wasn't. Luckily they had an extremely tasty half and half chowder - half red, half white, really good. We also tried the conch... More

We stopped by on a Sunday at lunch time. They only had a few beers on draft. We chose Stellas and they served them cold in mason jars. We were on a Goodland pubcrawl, so got a few orders of conch fritters to share. Really hit the spot! Service was great, nice breeze on the screened porch out back, good... More

We ate at Marker 8.5 last night. We were warmly greeted when we walked in and our server was very friendly and accommodating. Being July, it was a little warm both inside and outside, but the atmosphere made up for it-Jimmy Buffett music in the background and a beautiful view of the water. We tasted several dishes. The clam chowder... More

We have eaten at Marker 8.5 several times in the past year. We were always very happy with the food and service. When we were searching for a caterer for a rehearsal dinner we asked Chef Michael if he would be interested in doing something like that. He was not only interested, but so enthusiastic about doing it. Michael sat... More

When you first see this restaurant you may have doubts. But you will be glad you gave it a chance. It is small with a great view. The fish is fresh and the food is great.

We visited this restaurant 2 years ago, when it was under previous management. We were not impressed, however, this year we returned having heard that it had been cleaned up and improved. This was indeed so. Lovely bright tablecloths, and now spotlessly clean. It is right on the water and has a kind of rustic charm!
