Stan's is a stop any time we visit Marco Island. Unfortunately, this time we visited toward the end of the season. The menu was limited and the food was just average. However, it's all about the atmosphere. You can visit by car or boat or, as can be seen lined up out front every Sunday, a multitude of motorcycles. Sunday... More

An old memoria; enjoy Stans & maybe find nirvana. You won’t likely find good service, better than average food, or a clean privy, but that’s not why you would be here anyway! Have a good time & enjoy the view!

Food, beer, music, friends and an awesome atmosphere make for a memorable time. Go early or you won't have a parking spot or a table. The buzzard lady is unforgettable. I was impressed when they stopped the party and played "God bless America ". I would definitely go back!

Stopped for drinks and people watch. My daughter in laws great grandparents, grandmother, mother, aunt and uncle use to live in Goodland 30 years ago on Mango. Her mom was texting her what to look for.

Tho the weather was crappy, we came prepared & had fun. Music was great & service was fab! We don't know if you'd call it a festival, but the mullet basket was tasty & the beer was cold. The band engaged the audience which was fun too!

I'm not sure what one could say about Stan's on a Sunday afternoon except that it's special. No need to primp or spruce, just come as you are - just like the other 1,000 plus participants on any given Sunday. Rain or shine, this place comes alive with a wide ranging crowd, pretty typical bar food, drinks in plastic cups... More

As soon as you get out of your vehicle whether it's a boat or car you can tell this place is something different. It doesn't matter if you drive a Harley a Honda or a Maserati. If you are a ditch digger or a defense attorney it doesn't matter. If you're young or old this place is an absolute blast.... More

We had a blast! This place was recommended to us for a fun Sunday afternoon hangout....they were right! This large, open air location has water access and is a perfect venue for this weekly party. If you're looking for a huge, laid back cookout with fantastic live music, strong drinks, a crowd that is both diverse and friendly, this place... More
