“Nice Spot, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

This is a good place for lunch on Goodland Island just before you reach Marco Island. Had clam chowder and blackened grouper and my wife had fried oysters; both were quite good and the wait staff was most friendly. The weather was perfect for sitting outside on the open porch watching the fishing boats unloading next door.

This was the first time we have been there and thought the collection of nutcrackers was very interesting. There must have been 300 of them in a Christmas theme. May not be there after the Christmas season.

It is an easy 20 minute drive south from Naples and a nice change of scenery as there are not that many beach restaurants in Naples.

“Funny evening with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Stone Crab... my first experience! Friends suggested we go for fresh Stone Crab and took us to Little Bar, I'm thankful they did. The experience was memorable to say the least. I loved the friendly staff and fun local flavor, although the dusty nutcrackers were a little over the top. Overall... the beer was cold, the food great, and the company outstanding. I see a return trip in my future.

“what a dissapointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

i read all these nice reviews and decided to give a try,,,what a huge dissapontment,worst food i had on marco island...i had fried calamarie so i could not even see if had calamari or i just had extra greasy fried breading,,,after i had soft shell crabs-it was really as a joke! it were smallest and the most chewy soft shell crabs which i ever saw and i paid 52 $ for that 2 entrees...
so that dinner was dissapontment and total embarassment for me because i invited for dinner my father who came to visit me from europe....

I am sorry that Little Bar did not come close to your expectations. We take pride in our ability to present only excellent fare. In the rare case that food prepared for you is unacceptable, we make every effort to correct our error or replace your entree with a different selection. A word to your server would, at the very least, had the questionable items removed from your check and a report written to avoid futute mistakes. Our soft shelled blue crabs, all harvested in Florida, are processed in a closed system were they are inspected every 2 hours to ensure their genuine soft shelled nature. W purchase only jumbo, whale or slab sized crabs.
Again, I apologize for your bad experience.

Wonderful laid back atmosphere with live music on many nights .Ordered stone crab as an app . and it came within 5 minutes ! Soooooooo yummy !Back in season ! Such great friendly service ...kicking myself for not remembering my servers name . Next time I'll review at the table . Had the voodoo grouper with EXTRA avocado ...mom had the fabulous prime rib . Everything was terrific ! Their house garlic dressing is to die for and their grilled asparagus and squash was so good . Fresh baked rolls .....warm ! I can't say enough about this place ...go ...you won't be disappionted ....so glad we bought a home on Marco ...we'll be back !
