Marker 8.5

Marker 8.5 in Goodland, FL is exactly what you look for in an off the beaten path gem. It has a small fishing town feel, a great atmosphere, and great food to match. The chef brings in fresh fish caught daily from the Florida Keys which makes all the difference in the world. Under new ownership, the restaurant is doing their best to draw in the tarpon as well, by discarding filleted carcasses under their docks. The hope to bring in resident tarpon much like Robbie's in Islamorada, Fl. 

A Tip from the Ryans: Ask your server which fish is being used for the smoked fish dip. When we were there, it was made from a black tip shark caught right out in the bay behind the restaurant, and it was unholy good. He commonly uses smoked mullet as well.
