Olde Fish House Marina, Matlacha, FL
This is quickly becoming my favorite spot on the island. The Olde Fish House has always been a great little marina with a gas dock and live bait as well as a small tackle shop. It also has a market selling every kind of locally caught seafood as well as clams and oysters. This past week alone I stopped in three different times and picked up some cobia, red grouper, and a dozen blue crabs. Best of all is their restaurant which is now open for lunch and dinner. The new owners have expanded the menu a bit and added a handful of new items such as a bison burger and my favorite softshell crab sandwich. And they obviously sell cold beer and wine, too. The Olde Fish House is open seven days a week and is located at 4530 Pine Island Road, just after the Matlacha drawbridge.
