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

We are foodies. We love fresh fish and quality meats, with nice preparations. Island Cafe was awesome! Pecan encrusted Salmon and Scallops over parpadelli with a mushroom ragout were both amazing. And the chocolate cherry bread pudding was a perfect way to finish. The wine list is a little light, but they are willing to uncork yours for a small... More

Don't be fooled by its nondescript exterior in a small strip mall. This is an excellent restaurant with fresh exquisitely prepared seafood and regular American cuisine. Early Bird Special great value. Highly recommended.
