Marco Island's Fabulous Restaurants

If you’re planning on spending your next vacation in Southwest Florida, save this guide to the best restaurants on Marco Island.

Despite its rather petite physique, Marco Island is a Florida playground. With only twelve square miles to work with, Marco is packed with beautiful beaches, endless canals, great shopping, and tons of fun things to do, perhaps most notably – great restaurants.

The Best Restaurants

Marco Island has a lot of great restaurants, but there are a few standouts that really shouldn’t be missed. Certainly, most people would agree that Snook Inn is one of the best restaurants on the island. It’s famous for good reason. Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is incredible as well. If you want the island vibe, Snook has it.

Another restaurant that has a great ambience is Mango’s Dockside Bistro. Their patio is directly overlooking the Esplanade Marina on Smokehouse Bay. The boats and waterfront homes make for a luxurious and picturesque setting for lunch or dinner.

Some other local restaurants that always come up in discussions of the “best” restaurants are DaVinci’s ItalianJoey’s Pizza, and Capri Fish House.
