Great place for a drink and listening to music. Sit outside overlooking the water. Food is just ok, but great place to sit, enjoy the view and music.

The daily specials were the hit of the day especially the Grouper Reuben for my husband and one of our friends - the cut of fish was huge! Another friend ordered the sauteed Crab Cakes off the regular menu and said they were awesome! The portions were so large, we all took leftovers home and had them for dinner. There... More

Salad bat is just average , need bacon bits and they need to replace the croutons. Steaks are the best ! Chicken alfredo and asparagus is very good I don't see how anyone can finish it ! I always get a box. The view over the water is the best in the area also'

If you're used to cold, flavorful, slightly salty oysters you won't get them here! We both had a hard time eating them, and in fact left several on the dish which is something we've never done! Warm, with no flavor, rather mushy. The Ahi Tuna special was very good and flavorful, but the Scallop Scampi was not as expected. Scampi... More

Eight of us dined here on a Sunday afternoon ... the food was great ... especially the soft-shell crab sandwiches. The waitress was attentive. The weather and the outdoor seating made everything perfect. We will definitely return!

Go for ambience and salad bar. The food is just iaverage. The steamed shrimp is too bland and a little too tough. The supposedly fresh grouper was not that great. It was pretty tasteless. The place has an amazing setting and we go there for that but I'll just stick with the salad bar.

We've eaten at Old Marco Lodge quite often and have never had a bad experience. It's a great place to come with out of town guests as the view is awesome and it's got the Old Florida feel to it. We've been with a large group as well as couples and each time we've had good service and good food.... More

Everything from the valet to the service to the food was perfect. The Old Marco Lodge offers great water front dinning and a salad bar to boot....

The lobster bisque was very tasty, as well as the coconut shrimp. Was there on Sunday evening and the band was pretty good.

We ate her twice, both times the food was good. Salad bar is limited but fresh. Patio is nice, often has entertainment. The key lime pie is OUTSTANDING.
