Usually go to rookies a couple when visiting marco. Sandwiches are good I had the fried grouper and they have 2 happy hours but even without the happy hour drafts are only 2.75. Nice relaxing place for lunch or if you want to just get out for casual meal

We live on Marco Island and thought we had covered most the restaurants at one time or another..but we usually don't frequent sports bars. We were in the plaza and were hungry for a sandwich..so we wandered over to Rookies and were seated at a table outside. Our server couldn't have been more pleasant or attentive. I ordered the 1/2 lb. burger.. and at $7.50 w/chips thought it was a great value..even with the .25 extra ea. for grilled onions and mushrooms and $1 extra for fires. ($9.00 total) My wife decided on a BLT. $6.95 with chips. It is hard to be impressed with either...but we were! My burger and fries were terrific...and when I saw my wife's BLT.. I couldn't believe it. Have never seen a more generous portion of bacon..very crispy and well done. My wife shared some with me and had plenty on her sandwich. She loved it! I have read many of the previous reviews..and can only say . "we will back." Couldn't have been a nicer experience with friendly and attentive service

Our server was very accommodating to getting the game on the tv we wanted even though the place was packed and she was very busy. She was very attentive not letting our drinks go empty once. Atmosphere was all sports, college basketball was on with ppl getting into the games. Fun place. Wish I'd been here for the games I like to watch. Great wings. And great prices. Would recommend ppl to visit if there ever In the area.

Went for lunch despite recent bad reviews. Place was not dirty. Food was good- BLT sandwich was loaded with bacon done just right, chicken Caesar wrap was excellent, served warm. Service wasn't bad. But server walked by 2 or3 times without saying anything--a" be right with you" would have been nice. There wasn't a long wait however

I was referred to this place by the Owner's Brother so we decided to give it a try. It is a typical bar setting with below average cleanliness with waitresses spilling beer on the floor as they go. Boothes were rather old and dated.
My wife ordered her lunch with vegetables on the side (at an extra charge) despite the waitress indicating that they were not the best. I guess she just wanted to try to eat healthier........in a bar! :) The vegetables were just exactly what the waitress suggested.......not good at all and she didn't eat them. Funny thing is that when the waitress asked how she liked them and my wife said they were not good.....the waitress gave her a look like, "What did you expect.....I told you they weren't good!" No offer to not pay the extra or credit at all. Oh well.
As for my grilled hot dog on a grilled french roll, it was very good......for a hot dog. Beer was cold.
As for the service, she wasn't very friendly and her response mentioned above put my wife off.
Guess we won't be going back there! :)
