I went there with my boyfriend and his family and there were a couple of things that were disappointing. First, we had made a reservation but when we got there the waitress said we had to wait 10 more minutes (irritating), but we had ended up waiting a full 45 minutes (from our reservation time) to be seated. The service... More

Atmosphere was great! Wine glasses were plastic with cracks! We should have left right then! Food presentation was spectacular. My New York strip Steak was microwaved! Tasted like crap. Never go back!

Traveling with dietary restrictions can by difficult, but Jen the waitress was very happy to help. Garlic and onions in addition to gluten free is fairly unusual for people to avoid, but we were able to mix and match to create a fabulous dinner. I also enjoyed the soup although not part of the dietary restricted option s well worth... More

We looked for some time to find a place open on Christmas Day..but finally decided that Marker 8.5 might be enjoyable for a casual Christmas Dinner because some friends had said they had recently had a nice dinner there...and there were some recent nice reviews. My wife called a week before to inquire about the menu..and was told "the Chef... More

We ordered shrimp cocktail for appetizer , then I had Clam chowder and house salad, both great. Husband got yellowtail snapper almondine which... More

My family has been going to Marco Island for years and we usually eat on Goodland every trip. However, this is the first time we tried Marker 8.5. The 1/2 conch chowder and 1/2 clam chowder soup was delicious. We tried the Captain's platter which had conch fritters, hush puppies, oysters, grouper, shrimp, soft shell crab, and crab legs. It...

We came to Mile Marker 8.5 for dinner. We live very close by and have always wanted to try it. My husband and I both ordered Fried Seafood Combo to get a little taste of everything. We really enjoyed our meals. Large portions and very tasty. Often when ordering fried food it gets greasy and heavy. Not the case here.... More

Our group of 10 ate an amazing breakfast that was out of this world! We reallyenjoyed the Cajun selections were delightful and spiced to perfection. The cheesy grits were fabulous. The cook and waitress were so efficient and friendly. The location is on the water and just gorgeous!
