Just 5 miles from the 'strip' on Marco Island is the quaint island known as Goodland. Goodland has only 300 residents but has 5 restaurants, a lodge and a really unique Post Office (check out the murals). I would never have gone here if I didn't have a cousin who was visiting and recommended meeting at the Little Bar. I am so glad I went.
When you first drive up, it is NOT impressive and looks like a dive. Don't be deceived. This place has lots of history, interesting decorations inside, unique antiques, and a quirky but relaxed atmosphere that is very welcoming. It also has a great canal view. The menu comes on a board that looks to be an antique itself, but this just lets you know that the items have withstood the test of time and are the best they offer. My cousins had been gushing about the broiled scallops so this is what I ordered and was VERY impressed.
Make sure you get the house salad dressing and eat it with the bread. It is a great combination. Also, I loved that they had 14 Hands cabernet. I have only seen this offered at the Melting Pot restaurants so was impressed that this 'dive' had it as well (Tip: You can get a bottle at Winn Dixie for $12.99!). After dinner, we took a golf cart ride (compliments of the cousin, not the restaurant) of the island and was infatuated with this quirky little island.
