Nice place for a good sunset. All covered outside dining. So no air!! wasn't sure when we arrived since there was no one else eating there, however that changed and glad we stayed. Food was good and again views were nice.

We came to this restaurant twice while we were staying at the resort. The bloody mary bar on the weekend was pretty cool as well as the breakfast (also on the weekends) where we got the pecan pancakes, the french toast, and a breakfast burrito. However, when we came back for lunch a couple days later, we were a little disappointed by the appetizers, namely the coconut shrimp that was $17 and only included three shrimp. We also had the mahi mahi tacos, which were much more reasonable and very delicious. Anyways, happy hour is nice (2-5 pm). Would recommend the breakfast and entrees, but beware of the appetizers or you may pay a lot for very little.

Looking for an outdoor, beachy, casual dinner setting? THIS. IS. NOT. IT. For a nice beachy ambiance, I highly recommend Kane at JW Marriott. The portions are a bit on the smaller side and the prices on the higher, but you are literally at a table, toes in the sand, surrounded by tiki torches and in a NON-divey atmosphere. So close the extra tab that opened up on your browser, or click the back button. Keep looking. Save your money and disappointment.

If you are still reading, here's what to expect at Stilts:
View- limited. 90% of surroundings are dense bushes, full of mosquitoes and sand fleas.
Food- mediocre and expensive. We had: caprese salad, calamari that were so rubbery, nearly inedible, hamburger, shrimp tacos, sesame chicken and one alcoholic drink.
Cost: $120. The alcoholic drink was listed as a "split" prosecco on the menu. You'd think you get a mini bottle. Nope. We got a 6oz plastic glass of the bubbly.
Ambiance - dark and then it got darker. The major source of light for the space is the bar. At 9pm, sharp, the bar went dark. And so did the restaurant. With people still at the bar! Imagine being left with the equivalent of one cell phone lighting up the table.
Please- do yourself a favor and get a pizza by the slice if you're really hungry and are looking for last resort. This place is NOT IT.

We thought that Stilts would be a fancy restaurant but it was instead casual restaurant adjacent to a bar overlooking one of the Marriott’s many pools. The excellent singer guitarist was wonderful but the real star of this meal was the food. Our coconut shrimp appetizer ($17) was delicious and looked every bit as luscious as it was. There were three jumbo shrimp, each sitting on top of a fried risotto cake. The shrimp were perfect, with just a hint of coconut. The delicious risotto cakes were a great surprise, creamy on the inside and crisp on the outside. My “Stilts Burger” was a crazy, yet delicious combination of ground beef, goat cheese, crisp peppery bacon, fried onion rings and other ingredients I can’t remember. It was served with a generous portion of French fries which I couldn’t possibly finish. My wife ordered a steak sandwich, served medium rare. It was on delicious garlic toast which was brushed with chimichurri sauce. The meat was generously covered with sauteed onions. The sandwich was served with a fried egg which my wife declined but which went perfectly with my French fries. She chose fresh fruit rather than the fries. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We are residents of Marco, and walk down the beach for lunch often. We love the view at Stilt's, but have found the service to be lacking on several occasions. If we are really hungry, we don't go there! If the place is half full, we don't go either. We had guests last week and knew it would be a nice setting for a cocktail and lunch. We were greatly disappointed that our favorite scallops were no longer on the menu. Our (very small) salads and mahi tacos took over an hour, which was very difficult with two small children. So, once again... we won't be back! No scallops, horrible service (beyond our servers control -- quite obvious the kitchen is inadequate)
