Nice place to hang out with friends and get a drink. The seating is comfortable and the prices are reasonable. They boast a nice menu that includes the usual beach fare as well as sodas and beer. It's just a couple hundred yards from the water and quite easy to get to. Parking is $8 a day. Bring mosquito spray... More

I would not go out of my way to pay a fee to get into the parking lot to go eat there. If you are at Tiger tail Beach this would be a nice place to eat lunch at.

I 've been here many times (8 to 10) over the past ten or so years. The food is fine, typical, easy to prepare, basic food. It's ok, nothing special. If you're hungry, it 'fills the bill'. The prices are on the high side, yet, to be expectd!

Hi William, Are you kidding me ? Like you, my wife, who runs our food concession is from Philadelphia. Although she suffers with MS she still works very hard to produce good food and uses locally grown produce . She also makes her own dressings for each meal and doesn't buy the "Typical" cheap patties and dressings one would normally... More

We stopped in for a simple lunch and were very pleased with the quality. Menu is small but with plenty of satisfying choices. I had the veggie wrap. Fresh and tasty. Generous portion (plenty left over for a snack later). Came with some very good potato chips. My partner had a chicken burger which came on a nice looking bun... More

We only got one meal the chicken tenders and waffle fries, the price was ok to be right at the beach, not only that but the food was actually really good and they serve a lot, we did wait a little longer than a reg fast food place but it was worth it because the food was so fresh

The Beach cafe has a nice menu with something for everyone, including kids meals. Recommend the veggie wrap and burger but the chicken salad on a croissant (special) is darn yummy too! I haven't had a bad experience ever! Plan a quick meal and support a local business!

It was just a lovely 20 minute walk down the beach from the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort. The veggies wraps were fabulous as was the coconut shrimp. It was the best value for the money we found during our stay. We ended up eating lunch here five out of the six days we were on the island.

We had the Coconut Shrimp Basket and the Fish and chips basket. The food was pretty good, $12 per basket. The staff was friendly and the food came out fast.
