Big Al’s Deli

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Big Al’s Deli–don’t miss it.  This great deli is on Bald Eagle close to Porky’s Last stand.  The sandwiches are great.  The sides are great.  Honestly, we are a family of 5.  We have eaten there quite a few times.  Never had a bad meal.  Sometimes you wait.  This is a local favorite.  It is worth the wait.  You can even order ahead.  So, if you are going out on a fishing excursion and want to take a meal–order ahead and pick it up on the way to the marina.

Capri Fish House–Isle of Capri

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

My husband and I recently tried the Capri Fish House on the Isle of Capri.  There were two choices for dining–inside and outside (in a tiki hut).  We chose the tiki hut option.  There was nobody dining inside.  There were three other couples dining outside.  There were also a few patrons at the bar. 

The bartender was quick to provide us with a menu.  Our first wine choice was not in stock.  I ordered a fish dinner served with two slices of tomato and a piece of artichoke.  The fish came with vegetable and mashed potatoes.  My husband ordered fish with salsa which was also served with vegetable and mashed potatoes.  Our dinners were good but not fabulous.  Prices were about average for this area.  The server did forget my husbands salsa but it was brought promptly upon our request.  Also we did order baked potatoes but mashed were brought to us instead. 

Our only complaint was the fact that a cat (maybe a stray cat??) entered the tiki hut during our meal.  I am not a cat person and neither is my husband.  Eventually the cat left on its own accord.  We wish any of the employees in the tiki hut would have ushered the cat out. 

I will try Capri Fish House again but I will not be in a rush to go back.   There are too many other places to try.

Davide Italian Cafe and Deli on Marco Island

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

On my most recent trip to Marco Island, I had to make a stop at Davide, the new Italian restaurant and deli on Marco Island.  As we approached the island, I was concerned that Davide might be closed.  After all, it was a Sunday and not “in season”.  To our delight, Davide was open.  There were four other couples enjoying their meals on this particular afternoon.  The visible food on each of their tables looked very, very good.  After we sat at our table, the service was great and the people were very pleasant.  I tried a scone and the brushetta.  My husband had the chicken club special.  The food did not disappoint and the prices are about average for the island.  This is definately a great addition to the dining scene on the island.  I also had the occasion to use the bathroom–immaculate.  My only concern is the small dining area–both inside and out are small.  I suppose they will accommodate the “in season” crowds with take-out food which is available.  ENJOY!
