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

“Casual, inexpensive and very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Our first visit. We had the burgers on garlic toast, and $1.75 beers. The burgers were really good, if perhaps a bit too juicy. Next time we will just have it on the regular bun. The meat was very good. The value was exceptional, and the service warm and engaging. This will not be our last visit as Crazy is firmly on our Marco "rota."

“The service and food...Thumbs down”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

The service was horrible, at best! The server was not prompt nor friendly. The burger and fries tasted like high school cafeteria food. Perhaps, I was not dressed to impress but the take out service was sub par.

We were sorry to read your review of our restaurant. We did notice by your order that you had to wait 14 minutes for your burgers to go. We do not precook them. They are made to order. We take pride in each meal we prepare. We did notice you gave McDonalds 5 stars. We do not even try to compete with them:)

“Lovely service lovely grouper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Went there last night. Wow what a find! So different, unpretentious for a change if you like that sort of thing which we do. Basically you go to the bar order your food and they call you when it's ready. Got greeted by lovely girl who took our drinks and food order, hubby doesn't drink and asked if they did coffee but they only serve beer and wine, and soft drinks I think., but a sweet Irish gentleman don't know if he was the manager/ owner said it would be ok if he wanted to get a coffee at dunking donuts literally a few feet away and could drink it at our table which we did. We sat outside, I was a bit worried that we would miss our call but they came outside with our food which was great. The fried grouper was lovely and moist crisp batter, we had 1/2 pint shrimp in shells between us which was very good as was the deep fried shrimp. If you like a relaxed friendly atmosphere without the frills then this is the place for you, the food is really not bad. I hope they continue to be successful !! Hope to visit again when we are back in USA. Xx

If your a wing lover, this is the place to try them. Especially 3pm-5pm and then again 10pm-1:30am. But anytime in between everyone loves them and our homemade blue cheese.

Move to Marco from Miami this summer and I was looking for a good burger place. I find it here at Crazy Flamingo. Cook to perfection, great flavor. Very casual place and friendly people. Already my burger place close to home.
