Owned by Scott and Bonnie Gibbs since 2004, Cocomo’s Grill has become not only a tourist favorite but a local favorite as well! Offering a variety of unique items and a friendly smile from every member of the staff, Cocomo’s Grill is a restaurant that you cannot go wrong visiting. When choosing what to eat, do not hesitate to sample their varieties of fish including grouper and tuna. If nothing on their menu catches your eye, feel free to bring them your catch of the day and Cocomo’s Grill will cook it up for you!

Kretch’s Restaurant 

Stretching its roots all the way back to 1986, Kretch’s Restaurant has become integrated into society on Marco Island. Starting out in a converted deli, Bruce and Ellen Kretschmer have poured their hearts and souls into making Kretch’s Restaurant what it is today. Customers can come in nowadays and enjoy daily fresh baked bread, fresh seafood delivered almost daily, freshly smoked ribs, and the most delicious steaks imaginable.

For fresh Marco Island seafood at unbeatable prices, look no further than Pinchers. Their menu has all the seafood favorites you expect, like fried calamari, clams, crab cakes, fish and chips, and more. There are quite a few land options, too, if someone in your group would rather have something different. This is a great restaurant for families on a budget since kids dine for free! Pinchers has locations all along the Florida coastline, but it’s still a staple when it comes to Marco Island restaurants. 

Dolphin Tiki Bar & Grill 

Of all the restaurants on Marco Island, Dolphin Tiki Bar & Grill is unarguably one of the main attractions. This eatery makes every single meal right when you order it, so you never have to worry about getting a meal that’s not fresh. We recommend ordering the Grouper, as it’s one of their specialties and is caught fresh from the Gulf every day! They also offer unique daily specials every day of the week to save you some money and encourage you to try something new.

This restaurant welcomes every single guest with a smile and always ensures that you won’t leave hungry!
