The Beach cafe has a nice menu with something for everyone, including kids meals. Recommend the veggie wrap and burger but the chicken salad on a croissant (special) is darn yummy too! I haven't had a bad experience ever! Plan a quick meal and support a local business!

It was just a lovely 20 minute walk down the beach from the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort. The veggies wraps were fabulous as was the coconut shrimp. It was the best value for the money we found during our stay. We ended up eating lunch here five out of the six days we were on the island.

We had the Coconut Shrimp Basket and the Fish and chips basket. The food was pretty good, $12 per basket. The staff was friendly and the food came out fast.

I feel a bit strange reviewing a little beach side "snack bar" but we were pleasantly surprised at this simple place that is part of the Marco Island public beaches.

This is a beachside spot with basic but good food. There is nothing else, so pay and enjoy. The cheeseburger was perfectly wonderful and set us up for the afternoon. So have lunch, walk across the ford to the beach, walk to the far end, see the wildlife, birds, turtles and dolphins and relax.
