Comment: I love this place. It is THE place to be on a Sunday afternoon. Don't expect to eat any good food though unless you like hamburgers and fries. Stan is the coolest old man I ever met! Great place to people watch, drink, dance and have a great time. You will be up on stage doing the Buzzard Lope with Stan and Queen Mary before you know it!. Trip Advisor.
The Lodge is one of Collier County's most picturesque waterfront restaurants offering panaramic views of the Marco River and Goodland Bay from its large and beautiful outside deck or airconditioned restaurant and lounge. The Old Marco Lodge was built in 1869 by W.D. Collier as his family home in Marco Island. The building was moved to its present location in 1965 and has undergone several renovations.
