You could sum up the fishing town of Goodland in one word: idiosyncratic. Likewise, the Little Bar, one of three watering hole restaurants that tourists love as much as the (idiosyncratic) locals. Because besides the usual frog legs and seafood Everglades fare, its dry-erase board menu lists some Old World folk foods such as liver and onions, kielbasa and kraut and marinated herring. There's yet another dimension to its menu - finer fare such as crab cakes with lobster cream sauce and blackened mahi-mahi. The setting is every bit as quirky. Outside, the view is bay waters, fishing docks and crab traps. The interior is cobbled together with salvaged wood from a historic boat, pieces of pipe organ, stained glass and various other components with a past.
- Recommended as Best Value Because: It is one of the most affordable options for waterfront dining on the Marco Island menu, and the food is the best in Goodland.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants for Spring Because: Springtime in Goodland brings an onslaught of salty scents and characters to watch from Little Bar's waterside back porch.
- Best for Marco Island's Best Restaurants Because: It embodies Goodland's spirit of foolishness and salty flavor while serving dependably good eats.
- Best for Group Friendly Because: Its tables occupy lots of different indoor and outdoor spaces from intimate to waterside.
