I've been coming to this restaurant most every year on my return visits to Marco Island. The last two years we've missed our chance to dine here due to newborns or schedule conflicts when they close briefly in the summer. This year, they were open in August and we decided to stop in for dinner on a Tuesday evening. Most... More

My wife and I come to Marco Island each year for a week's vacation. Island Cafe is on our list each year. Bill and Robert give us excellent service. The food is excellent. Their special for the entire month of August is a free soup/salad and dessert with each entree. We both ordered the Shrimp & Scallops for dinner and... More

It was almost an accident that we returned to this popular local entry after a decade of passing it by after the departure of Denis and Lisa many years ago, but that's another story. The real story here is the food and it was on very good on average. We enjoyed sampling each other's dishes and came away with the... More

As locals we dine here often and have never been disappointed. The food and the service continue to be far above par. I had the Florida grouper, which is one of my favorites. My wife had the salmon. Both dishes were fresh, perfectly prepared, and very pleasantly presented. There is a summer special that includes a full size appetizer and... More

Beat food. Best price. Best service. Short but nice wine list with reasonable prices. We had a lively Bordeaux. I had French onion soup and the mussel appetizer as my main course. I usually order mussels whenever I have the opportunity and these were The mussels are the the best I have ever had. My husband had the wedge salad... More

Lucky to get a table. Packed full of locals enjoying great food. Always a good sign, particularly out of season. We were not disappointed. Had a bit of a wait to be served, but they squeezed us in, so no complaints and was it worth the wait! Went for the "special" and it really was. Succulent duck breast with scallops,... More

Been visiting restaurant for years, several times each time we vacation in Marco but yesterday, arrived a 5pm with not a single person in the restaurant. Gentleman I'd never seen at the door and on the phone taking a reservation. We eat dinner early (would have been there at 4:30pm is we could have), restaurants always uncrowded when we dine,...

Off season pricing/specials make this an amazingly affordable, upscale night out. Been here three years on vacation and never failed to deliver. Don't be afraid of only a few tables with patrons. It's just off season traffic pattern.

Summer special: soup or Salad or app. Plus Main course plus desert for main course price. Best filet ever! Best deal! Service was excellent as well. I can't believe I've lived here for two years and this is my first time to the Island Cafe.

Out of prime season, Marco Island gets slow and some businesses scale down or even limit hours. Island Cafe offers a great summer deal where you get an appetizer AND dessert included for the price of your entree. The food is very good. Beer and wine only. A five rating if the service was better. Unfair to ding them in... More
