Description: The Crazy Flamingo has been serving Marco Island for 27 years. It is a VERY, I repeat VERY casual bar setting restaurant that happens to sell delicious food, beer & wine. WE DO NOT Have a wait staff. EVERYTHING is ordered at the bar. We are best known for our Wings, Burgers on Garlic bread, fresh fish and Seafood dishes. Our raw bar of oysters and clams are shucked to order right in front of you.Our steamed pots are popular. 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

This was our first night on the island and were looking for a little bar to grab a bite to eat/drink a beer. There was outside seating so we ordered some drinks and went outside. The menu had lots of seafood and limited "land" items. Three out of the four of us ordered the steak sandwich and one had a shrimp pasta dish. We ordered back inside as you went up to the bar if you needed anything, which was totally fine with us! We were called to pick up our food after about twenty minutes. So the good news, the shrimp dish was good and that was eaten.

The bad: The three of us that had the steak dish were unable to eat it. The ribeye was filled with fat and you could not physically chew down on it. Understandably the steak has fat, but when it is on a sandwich it should not!! The only edible thing on the plate were the fries.... We decided to say something when we went in and paid and they were nice enough to take all three off of our bill. All in all this first a bar and food second. We were not expecting perfection, but did want something edible. I am pleased that they at least took them off our bill. I cannot discredit them for that, but will never be returning!

The older women working behind the bar couldn't figure out how to run our check. The attitude was nasty. Didn't want to explain anything to us it was our 1st time there!! Made us feel unwelcome!!

We grabbed lunch here and it was perfect bar food. You go up and order at the bar. They had $3 beers which I loved after hotel beer. The buffalo shrimp was too good to be true. My husband got a burger with the garlic toast and ate every last bite!If you are looking for a local bar with great food then you've found it!
