We go with a large group every year when we are in Marco for vacation. The grouper sandwich torpedo is always a big hit.
2 of us had the chicken picatta. So yummy. The salad bar is great. The guys love the soup. Great drinks from the bar. Our waitress and hostess were very nice and patient with our large, noisy group. See you next year. No entertainment yesterday but we have seen great performances in the past.

Food is only so-so at best. The restaurant is in the Publix parking lot. The entertainment is only ok.... Mostly just some guy with a guitar...not worth the effort to go.

Hard to not pass by a covered bandstand in the parking lot of the local Publix grocery store BUT if you do because it doesn't look good enough for you, you be missing good food, a very nice salad bar, a courteous server and a singer playing the oldies. Teens and twenty something's probably can find a better atmosphere, but if you are remembering the seventies, this would be a good choice.

Had lunch with friends from Canada who are visiting Marco Island for the Month. Our first visit to Marco Island. More restaurant choices to choose from than I could count. Happened upon this place. It was the BEST fish sandwich I've ever had. The light/crispy breading made it along with the fish being a great portion. The fish was about 3 x as long as the bun! Came with fries and fruit.
Price was reasonable. Small place and we came in after lunch rush around 1:30pm. Was nearly empty - but at meal times could easily fill up. Service was decent. In sort of strip mall so lacks a great view.

Went for a late lunch, not very busy. Under going some interior decorating, so we cut them some slack. Place was a little untidy. Salad bar comes with all lunches, pretty basic but they kept refreshing it in the middle of the afternoon. Also includes the soup which was beef chili and was very good. Open faced pot roast was also good. Definitely a doggie-bag kind of place
