I've lived here 24 years and always love eating at the bird or Crazies. Great food and service. They have a huge menu and their specials are usually outstanding. if your not hungry they have plenty of beer.

“A local favorite”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

The Crazy Flamingo turned out to be a favorite of ours on Marco Island. It was recommended by the valet at the hotel we were staying at. He said it was a local favorite and it did not disappoint. Nothing fancy but great food, service and affordable prices. What more could you want. We went twice in one week. We would go back again. R.T.

“Charred grouper”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We ask for a grilled fresh grouper. Just add salt,I said. I was surprised with a charred grouper. My son told me that he could not eat that horrible fish. We are used to eat fresh fish on the grill and this was the worst we have had. Don't come here. Too pricey for the food and service .

Here's where the customer is not always right. Sorry to say, BUT he asked for salt ONLY. when salt hits an open flame it will char and get crusted. If he would have left the cooking to the chef, it would have been put in an olive oil n salt and grilled to perfection. As for our prices, PLEASE check around the island and read ALL the other reviews. We are inexpensive.

“This time caos was welcome”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Many people but everyone just relaxed and did their own thing. Loved the Marlin and fried Ravioli. First time for both! It was very humid and the beverages were ice cold..such a pleasure. The pot sticker eaters were plentiful and it was obvious what they were eating...where were the napkins! :))

We have been coming for years. Love the wings, steak sandwich on garlic bread, Caesar salad. The beers are cold. The orders don't take long at all to be ready. See u again next year.
