This is a great casual dining experience.The salad bar was unbelievable and the food was great. The prices were very reasonable and our waitress was exceptional. We would go back here again in a heartbeat.

“Prime Rib...mmmmmm”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We've been going to this restaurant on each visit to Marco for 8 years. The decor is old, but the salad bar and Prime Rib are decent. We find it a decent dinner while on the island. Kid friendly too.

“Hit and miss. ”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

This was the first place we ate when we arrived and it was fantastic. Portions were huge. Food was outstanding. The service was sufficient if not remarkable. Everyone agreed it was really good. Later in the week we decided to go back. Very mediocre experience for us. Maybe we were just real hungry and excited to be on vacation the first time but the second trip certainly wasn't as good. The ribs were burnt black and the other meals were graded "ok but not great".

“Not the old porkeys ”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

This used to be one of the best spots on marco island then came a. New owner and now this is a place you should skip we used to be able to order all dark meat but not any more. The new owner could charge extra for that but I think he is just not a very experience business guy. We order chicken it comes with potato and salad bar we wanted to split it for lunch. Only one of us wanted to eat the salad bar not both of us but we were told we can't do that we could order two potatoes. Just a very in experience owner that does not know how to run a resturant. My advice skip this place

“DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!!”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

At one time this was a real fun place. It has changed hands and fell through the bottom. The wait staff, especially at the bar should all be fired. Except for the lady. She is the exception. They do not care about their customers and look busy, God only knows what they are doing, NOTHING!! No eye contact or even acknowledging you are there. And it wasn't even busy!!! And it just wasn't me. The couple next to me, who are regulars, told me they were waiting for over 20 min.. It wasn't until I said something they got waited on. He never asked us at the time and we waited. One drink and out of there, never to retun again. Oh, and it was St. Patrick's day and they ran out of food before 7pm. We were there around 4:30 before the crowd started.
