Eating is a huge big part of the travel experience.
Food and travel go hand in hand as you associate certain food groups to be “better” or “fresher” in the area you’re traveling to. I usually don’t order seafood as often being from the Midwest, but when I’m on the coasts you can catch me ordering bowl after bowl of seafood clam chowder.
Plus, it’s always a good idea to try local restaurants when traveling as an investment back into that economy.
Some of my favorite travel memories happen around the dinner table. It’s almost as if you get to re-live the adventures of the day all over again. I want to share some restaurants I really like in Marco Island with you in hopes you have a great experience at one of them too!

I’ve never heard of Marco Island before. Is it very near Miami or Orlando to fly in easily?
the closest airport would be Fort Myers!
Great article, thanks for the tips. I haven’t been to Marco Island yet, but I will definitely use this list and try some of the restaurants out once I visit it 😉 :). My bf is a big foodie, so he will be excited when I take him to one of these.
can’t wait to hear what he thinks!
We have the same philosophy when it comes to food and traveling. As I always say, they invariably go together. While I may not be able to go to Florida soon, I did enjoy reading your post.
thank you 🙂
We have not yet visited Marco Island in Florida. But if we do, this is a great guide for us to choose some great food options. Fresh fish will always be a draw for us.
We visited Marco Island and experenice some great food, but I forget the names of the restaurants. When we go back, I will make sure to reference your list.
thank you 🙂 🙂
I love trying food when I’m travelling somewhere and I think your list sounds great. When I’ll be able to visit Florida, I’ll definitely try some of the places you recommend.
I have never heard of Marco Island ever! And it just got added to my never ending US bucket list!
ah so happy to hear that!
You had me at crab rangoons! I’d love to eat at Thai Sushi and Lee Bee Fish Company. I do loveeee grouper
The Mahi Mahi sounds lovely, a friend of mine who lives near there is always checking in to the Snook Inn on facebook. Must be a good place.
it really is!
I hope I visit some of those restaurants during my next trip to Florida. I think Mango’s Dockside Bistro, Lee Be Fish Company, and Sweet Annie’s Ice Cream are perfect for me.
Marco Island sounds like a hidden secret, Thai sushi and ice cream would be great to try!
I live to eat. I actually keep a list of places around the country to try when I travel. I’ll put these on my list!
