There are several incredible restaurants on Marco Island that you can choose from for a magnificent meal, specifically along Marco Walk Plaza.

If you’re in the mood for some fresh seafood, visit Pinchers. You’ll have access to some of the freshest seafood in the area, including delicacies like blue crab and grouper. You can also ensure that Pinchers fits into your budget by taking advantage of happy hour food from 3 to 6 p.m. and free kids’ meals with an adult purchase!

If you’re in the mood for Italian, stop by DaVinci’s. This family-owned eatery brings the best of the Italian countryside to the shores of Marco Island. The combination of fresh ingredients, carefully selected wines, and an inviting atmosphere is a perfect way to spend the evening.

Alternatively, Nacho Mama’s is a great stop for Tex-Mex food. You’ll find both Mexican classics like nachos and fajitas, as well as American favorites like burgers and chicken sandwiches. No matter where you pick, you’ll experience a great meal made by the most talented chefs.

Marco Golf & Garden

Just across the street from any of these restaurants along Marco Walk Plaza, you can continue your evening at Marco Golf & Garden. Here, you’ll find a budget-friendly place to let out your competitive side. Make your way through 18 holes of mini-golf on an exciting and well-designed course. The loser gets to buy dessert!

Marco Golf & Garden is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. and weekends and holidays from 10 a.m. until 11 pm. Adults pay $12 per game, kids ages 6 through 10 pay $10, and kids 5 and under are free. If you’re in town for a special celebration or event, you can even reserve the golf course!

To finish off the evening, head back across the street to Beebe’s Ice Cream. This is the perfect place to satisfy your sweet tooth, and with sugar-free and fat-free varieties, everyone can take part!

Choose one of the 36 flavors in a cup or cone or opt for a sundae or milkshake. If you’re not in the mood for ice cream, you can also choose an iced coffee, smoothie, shaved ice, or candy.
