Beautiful view from almost every seat in the house. All the food was great, and prices are about what you would expect for fine dining at the beach. Service was mostly good, but there were a few missteps (took a long time to get drinks, wine not served at appropriate temp). The appetizers and small plates are all good, so... More

Nice adult atmosphere for dinning. Exceptional food, being from New Orleans area, we typically don't think other areas restaurants compare favorably, but this Chef was trained by Emeril. The food was the best we had ever had. Cocktails were great. Service was great. Wonderful choice of wines from around the world. As for deserts, the coconut cream pie was outstanding.... More

I've dined multiple times at Marina Café and it is always consistent. Staff are courteous and well trained, menu has very good variety, chef prepares dishes well, bar has a great vibe and view at sunset. A few months back I had a larger group and we sat in the private dining room which was a nice setting and private... More

Been awhile since we had a grown up date night and the Marina Cafe was just the ticket! Our server Angelia suggested the cobia as it was the last week of the season. She was so right! She brought our drinks which were a generous pour, fresh warm bread and then a delicious dinner. Along with the view it was... More

It was my husband's turn to choose a place for dinner,and as we left Duck, Duck ( a great bar nearby), it was clear he had done NO research about where to eat. He turned into the Marina Cafe,and we walked in to get a table. This is a place where many locals go, so it does feel like we... More

Expensive for two. One of the meals was delicious the other just okay. Wait staff was good and the bread was really good. Just call and ask about their specials. Something about buy one get one free which would have been great but we didn't get there then.

Great service ( although I think our waiter was having an "off night") I would definitely return. Food was great! I loved my filet. Next time I would ask for no sauce or for it to be put on the side. The steak was amazing without it. The ginger vinaigrette was the best salad dressing I've ever tasted. I would... More

Love the food and scenery here. Service is what destroyed the experience. My wife and I live here and had our kids here. After multiple great experiences during happy hour between 5-7, Mandy was excellent with our food and drinks. Tonight, Paris took care of us and had to share her service with other waitress. Celebrating my birthday and Mother's... More

It is certainly NOT our standard for any of our guests to have a less than wonderful dining experience. The management is very concerned about your review. Would it be possible for you to contact me directly so that we may further investigate this situation?? I can be reached via email and or phone (both available on our website) More
