Need a recommendation for business dinner in Marco Island, FL

I will be in Marco Island, staying at the Mariott and need a recommendation for a great restaurant in the area - I know Naples has great restaurants but it is a bit far. Any type of food or price is fine. Thanks!

  1. Da Vincis in Marco Walk shopping plaza is amazing. You wont be disappointed. The food is amazing. The ambience is great. Its true Italians serving Italian food and service is great as well. I think this would be perfect for a business dinner. Captain Brien's Seafood in the same plaza is more relaxed could also be a good option but Da Vincis seems more what you are looking for.

    1. I would recommend the Esplanade Shoppes on Smokehouse Bay. It has a great atmosphere and sites. There are two great places to eat - Guy Harveys and the Bayview Restaurant. Bayview has a fabulous outside gazebo bar as well as great outdoor seating for dining. They have recently gone through a new owner change and the food and service is fantastic.

        Bayview is now called CJ's on the Bay. The owners are accommodating and hands-on; I haven't been there yet, but I've heard that the food is great. And NewtoMarco's right, the bar and seating is great.
