Upon entering, we noticed we were the only restaurant guests, however bar was filled with locals for happy hour. 3 of us ordered stone crabs, which were fine. 3 others in our party (6 of us total) weren't so hungry, and this is when the restaurant's "policies" got confusing. One person noticed grilled cheese sandwiches on the kiddies menu, but... More

We ended up there by mistake and loved the place. It is right on the water with a very large patio. We were informed that the crab had just be caught 4 hours ago. They were very good and so fresh. Other people in the party had sandwiches and they said there food was very good. Service was good and... More

For years, as local patrons, we were welcomed to enjoy the music on Sundays, enjoy the camaraderie, and to relax and meet new friends. The last few times we have gone, however, we were treated as if we were invisible. The bartender at the actually told us to go to the bar inside because we would get waited on faster.... More

A group of about 15 of us went to the Old Marco Lodge Crab House, one of 4-5 places to eat in Goodland. This place is a grand old place where you could fit big groups inside or out, but if the weather is accommodating, why would you want to be inside? We all had fish dinners, which included potato...

Driving around Goodland and found the best oysters at the Old Marco Pub. This spot seems like old florida, but the food is a big surprise. Oysters were great and drink prices very reasonable!

We've lived in the area for eight plus years. Old Marco Lodge Crab House has been consistently a good place to take visitors. Everyone should see Goodland if they visit Marco or Naples. It is an experience. Definitely "Old Florida" fishing village flavor. Goodland has Mullet Festival which includes Buzzard Lope contest - does that give you a clue about... More

...place needs some upgrading. We went off-season, it was very hot and humid, but everything was sticky, the salad bar was really a joke, and there were bugs in my friend's drink and even in the salt shaker (!). I'm sure they have a loyal clientele but as tourists, my friends were turned off and we spun on our heels... More
