Description: The Crazy Flamingo has been serving Marco Island for 26 years. It is a VERY, I repeat VERY casual bar setting restaurant that happens to sell delicious food, beer & wine. We are best known for our Wings,fresh fish and Seafood dishes. Our raw bar of oysters and clams are shucked to order right in front of you. So if your looking for a VERY relaxed ,casual, sometimes LOUD but always good food... Stop by.. We do not take reservations,some parties come for dinner and stay all night. Enjoy the Island

“Great little bar with killer food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

The Marriott had a special deal offered by the local retailers that you could get a free Classic taxi to and from the shopping center where the Crazy Flamingo was located so we took them up on it. The Classic taxi was wonderful and nice charming drivers. The Crazy Flamingo was an ole time neighborhood bar, everyone was bragging on the burgers. We got peel & eat shrimp and Buffalo shrimp. All were delicious, although the peel and eat were very, very fresh. The garlic bread was worth the calories as was recommended. Next we are off to Lee Be Fish if he is open! Everyone also recommends "The Little Bar" but alas they are closed for the season. Many local places and so little time! As tourists.... try to get the truth from the locals, if you can!

“Best burger ever!!”

This place has the best burger I have ever eaten in my life. It is served on garlic toast and is absolutely incredible! We will definitely be eating here every time we come back to Marco Island.

“Uniquely Floridian Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Conch fritters, fish dip, grouper fingers, fried shrimp, burgers....all menu items make for traditional Florida island food. This fun and funky place is an ideal food fix joint...all served up with crispy fries.

“Amazing food, good prices (maybe a little high on drinks). Always a must when we are on the island.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

The Crazy Flamango is a go to place when we are on the island. Peel and eat shrimp, conch chowder and the grouper fingers are a MUST HAVE. We have been to the island three year in a row and have made this a go to restaurant every time. The atmosphere is very casual with indoor or outdoor seating.

“Nice spot to eat your catch, have a beer, and move on.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Local spot for beer has a nice friendly menu. We had them cook our catch which was grilled. Big portions, huge salad came with our fish. Good easy meal. Ease of access from the Marco island marina cannot be beat. Good for after a day of fishing.
