The Old Marco Pub is so named because it is in the Old Marco area of the city. It isn't old and full of charm, but they do serve a good drink, provide decent entertainment and serve up some good food at fair prices, They seem to specialize in Italian and fish. I had a veal dish which was very acceptable. Not a bad take if you don't want to cook at home and don't want to pay a fortune for your dinner,

Stopped in for a drink after dinner on a Saturday night. The band starts at 8:00 PM on Friday and Saturday and 7:00 PM on weekdays. Stayed and had a great time. The music was good and the crowd was fun. We saw the food coming out and everything look appetizing so we came back on Monday night and sat at a high table in the bar room. I had osso buco and my wife had the Francaise sampler with chicken shrimp and veal. Everything we had was very good. Also, the two piece band was excellent. I would definitely go back the next time I'm in Marco Island

Went on a hunch, set on bar side and glad we did. They had a two man show, one on drums & one on keyboards. Together their repertoire was timeless and they were playing to the crowd.
Ended up just enjoying a few delious libations and dancing. Definetly returning a little early for dinner and staying for the show.
P.S. Do yourself a favor and take a cab, parking is very limited.

Good food, but dated, old restaurant. Surprisingly expensive wine for such a place. Good food, nothing exceptional. Great waiter, the night we were there.

Food is very good here and reasonably priced. We had the parmigiana trio,the Veal special and shrimp fra diavolo, all excellent. We had asked for a table for five at 6:30 and were told we had to come at either 6 or 7:45. I expected the place to be packed, it wasn't! The dining room is a little dark and when we asked to be moved to a brighter area we were told no because the table was an eight top, which remained empty the entire night (as well as several other tables). On top of that, the service itself was very slow. I think all the help hang out in the bar area, which is newly renovated and quite large. They did have live entertainment.
