Marker 8.5 was great place to stop immediately catching fresh fish fro the back bays of Goodland with Dreamlander Tours. They cooked the fish and along with sides we had a very fresh caught dinner.

We came here on a Monday for lunch after discovered the Old Marco Lodge is closed on Monday's next door. This place looks neat from the road, the colorful decor lured us in.

Reasonable prices, good fresh fish offerings although too many were only available deep fried. On the night we went we were entertained by a live folk singer. My only complaint was that the conch fritters were mostly breadcrumbs.

The food was great, but the meals were warm at best. The soup was delicious but it was not hot. They are really understaffed and the servers (2 at most) have to do it all which leads to errors ( forgotten sauces, sides and drink refills. We were in the room with the bar... people were smoking and there was... More

What a fun spot to have lunch watching for dolphins and maybe a manatee, too! Nice assortments of appetizers, burgers, salads and sides; plus serves breakfast & dinner, too.

This is a shabby place...but fun to stop at for a beer or a bite to eat. Bar food, bar atmosphere. Directly on (almost in) the water.
