We returned once again recently...and were not disappointed. We love the informal/island atmosphere and the new chef/owner clearly knows his craft. I had scrimp and scallops that were absolutely fantastic...and my wife had the Yellowtail Snapper..also superb.. While pictures can't convey taste... they can convey the artistry and presentation... which I have shown on the pictures attached. Marker 8.5 has... More

Service was ok as was dinner.... More

This is a colorful, small, waterside restaurant in Goodland, without pretense. Theme features standard Florida seafood dishes, well prepared. Good place to have a beer. Service is attentive, and neither fast nor slow. Good view of boat traffic in and out of Woodland, and of the shallow bay where 8.5 is located. Informal, not noisy, fair prices.

Low key vibe with fresh and fantastic fish. Service was excellent. Conch chowder had a delicious kick. Hubby had Mahi - moist tender and flavored to perfection. I had spicy creole shrimp. Was perfect with sweat beads on my forehead. As if the porch side dining wasn't perfect enough, at dusk tiny white lights ribbon around the dock. Total keeper.... More

Old Florida restaurant on the waters of the Marco River. Quaint, cozy and delicious food! Excellent FRESH seafood, much locally caught and very reasonably priced. A hidden gem in the old fishing village of Goodland, Florida! Reservations highly recommended.

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. There is a nice outdoor dining area with tables, but that apparently isn't open for lunch or most days. We went in and asked to see a... More
