I have had the pleasure of enjoying many, many Marco Island restaurants. I would like to share with you, two of my personal Marco Island dining favorites which I would highly recommend when visiting the island, to round out that 'perfect beach vacation!!
Two Best of Class: ‘Best Marco Island Restaurants‘!
Michelbob’s Ribs are truly outstanding! They are the absolute finest ribs I have ever eaten! The ribs are baby back ribs from specially raised piggies, which are ‘tulip-fed’ in Denmark! Michelbob’s also claim they use only the ‘right’ side ribs of the piggies. Apparently, piggies roll mostly on their left side, which makes the ‘left rack of ribs’ tougher! Thus they use only the 'right' side ribs!!
This unbelievable combination turns out the finest most tender mouth-watering ribs I have ever tasted!!!
The Marco Island restaurant is take-out only. However, there is another restaurant in Naples , which also offers take-out AND dining in.
This Marco Island restaurant has won hundreds of awards!!
Here are just a few of them…
‘Canada’s Best Sauce’ (2X winner)
‘Canada’s Best Ribs’ (2X winner)
‘World’s Best Sauce’(2X winner)
‘Best Ribs in America’(3X winner)
‘Florida’s Best Ribs’(3X winner)
‘Best Ribs’ (10X, as proclaimed by Gulfshore Life)
‘Best Ribs in Southwest Florida’
‘Best Restaurant in Southwest Florida’ (by Naples News)
The menu offers choices which vary from just ‘racks of ribs ’and chicken packaged as individual ‘dinners’ and other various packages for greater quantities. The dinners are served with fries, baked beans, coleslaw and garlic bread. This makes for a complete VERY SATISFYING take-out meal!!!
But I must confess, I was so ‘into’ the taste of the babyback ribs, that I can’t really comment on the other foods that accompanied the ribs!! All of the food was certainly good, but THE RIBS ARE ABSOLUTELY TO DIE FOR!!!!
You can take Michelbob’s ribs and sauce home with you, or you can order them from Marco Island! FedEx will deliver fully cooked, packed and frozen ribs to your door for next day delivery! However, if FedEx messes up and the package does not deliver next day, FedEx however, will not back up their ‘late delivery claim’ !
The food is a bit on the pricey side.
However, I do think something this wonderful is worth every penny! So, needless to say, if you don’t ‘experience’ Michelbob’s AT LEAST ONCE,
you’ve missed out on a truly great food experience of a lifetime!!!!

Although dining out is a 'popular past-time' in Marco Is., there's loads of other fantastic things to see and do in Marco Island!
Best Seafood Restaurant
Captain Brien’s is the best seafood restaurant on Marco Island! The restaurant is very popular, so be sure to arrive early (suggest 5pm) to avoid waiting!
This Marco Island restaurant has quite an extensive menu, to suit even the ‘pickiest’ of eaters!
Their seafood selections consist of various appetizers, such as calamari, coconut shrimp, crab cakes, and roasted oysters (styled several different ways).
Their Raw Bar’ is their highlight. Malepeque, Blue Point and Ameripure Oysters are served on the half shell. My daughter ‘still raves’ about the ‘Lobster Martini', which consisted of a fresh Maine lobster served chilled!
I personally loved the ‘Coconut Grouper’, served with a tangy fresh pineapple salsa! Wonderfully tropical!!!
Seafood is their specialty, but they have great generous dinner- sized salads, pasta entrees, steak and beef choices, sandwiches, burgers and a yummy dessert selection.
The Key Lime Pie is really scrumptious….
it was voted the
‘Best Pie in Marco Island, Florida!”
If you enjoy live comedy, this restaurant also hosts a ‘comedy club’ which has live entertainment most evenings, usually after 9pm. There is a calendar posted on their website so you can check for upcoming entertainment.
I highly recommend Captain Brien’s Seafood & Raw Bar
Good service, good entertainment, casual atmosphere
and delectable FRESH seafood!
After all, isn't that what you’d expect from a restaurant in a tropical island paradise?Find current rates for hotels and resorts in Marco Island.
