Description: The Crazy Flamingo has been serving Marco Island for 22 years. It is a VERY, I repeat VERY casual bar setting restaurant that happens to sell delicious food, beer & wine. We are best known for our Wings,fresh fish and Seafood dishes. Our raw bar of oysters and clams are shucked to order right in front of you. We won BEST Burger on Marco Island on November 20,2010.It's best on garlic bread.Our staff is friendly and can explain all our Special dishes,not on the day to day menu. So if your looking for a VERY relaxed,casual,sometimes loud but always good food... Stop by.. We do not take reservations,some parties come for dinner and stay all night.Enjoy the Island

I read many of the previous reviews and am surprised by the low ratings on some of them. I don't understand why people want steak, Mexican or BBQ food when you're on an island - go for the seafood! However, CF has great burgers too. We visit Marco 4 or 5 times a year and used to always go to... More

Great bar atmosphere if that is what you are looking for, nit a good place to sit and eat outside, it is noisy and there are at least 2/3 TV's on outside blaring different channels. The only food that was good out of 4 people was the peel and eat shrimp, the fried grouper was tasteless and fries tasted off... More

I love visiting local establishments when I travel..stopped in here based on visitor comments. Had the best burger, hands down! Love the fun atmosphere and decor. You do have to serve yourself, but I am ok with that.

Always consistent, always good, people behind the bar are a little touched, but who isn't ? Order at the bar , drink at the bar, eat at the bar or outside. No big deal. Staff always friendly & the foods always good. Locals favorite. Been there for 30 years so they must be doing something right. Love the teriyaki wings... More

This is not a special-occasion place. This is just a place where locals come to hang out a bit. The menu claims the Caesar Salad is the BEST around. No, it's not...too many stalks..I couldn't finish it. HOWEVER.. the conch fritters. My son just had to order them. I usually hate the things......but these were DELICIOUS. We should have gotten...

You know how every time you travel somewhere you kind of want to know where the locals go but you also don't want to seem like a tourist? Well this is your spot. I've been going to Marco for several years and this is the best burger down there. In addition, late night happy hour and wing specials that you... More

The seafood was pretty good. Its a local joint that welcomes outsiders but not necessarily embraces them. Most of the staff is busy socializing with the locals. They are not rude or anything but you don't feel very welcome there as a result.

We were hungry one night quite late on our trip. A friend recommended we try the Flamingo. What a treat! Cheeseburger on garlic bread is where its at! The Irish bartender (cant remember his name) was so attentive and knowledgeable. Liked that they had a juke box and games. Music was a little too loud, but sitting outside fixed that.... More

This was our first night on the island and were looking for a little bar to grab a bite to eat/drink a beer. There was outside seating so we ordered some drinks and went outside. The menu had lots of seafood and limited "land" items. Three out of the four of us ordered the steak sandwich and one had a... More
