We happened on this restaurant by accident as we had planned to eat at the Salty Pelican, but on a holiday weekend evening the wait there was over an hour, so we decided to look elsewhere. Right around the corner, we found the Marina Seafood Restaurant. It was cool inside and there was no wait! It's obvious why the locals... More

My husband and I ate here the night we arrived and again with a group of 6. Everyone was so friendly and helpful as well as very good food. I had the shrimp (caught locally) twice and my husband had fish one night as well as the shrimp. The servers and hostess made it so fun to eat here. Definitely... More

Each one of us had a great meal with lots of sides included.The staff are very friendly and you can tell that all the locals who enjoy good food go there.In fact the owner knows most customers on a first name basis.Example;Oyster Poboy with 3 sides $12.95.LOADED.

This was our first meal in Fernandina, and it was a good choice. My wife had the crab cakes and I had a shrimp burger. The food was excellent! The salads and sides won't blow you away, but the seafood was amazing. It's quaint inside and was not crowded when we were there. Good family place to go as well... More

We ate here on our last night of vacation and were not disappointed. The food was good and it was nice that they have items on the menu other than seafood for those who get tired of seafood every night. The restaurant was clean and nicely decorated (no tacky beach decor). I will likely go back to Marina the next... More

While they have a lot of great sounding choices here, their specialty is the fried seafood platter and it's special for a reason! It comes with tons of food (and the two-person platter really is more than enough for two people) and a great variety of seafood including fish, shrimp, oysters, etc. It's the best bang for your buck!

Our first time eating here. Good, friendly, service. The menu tilts toward fried fish but they will do broiled or sautéed although they warn it can take 30 minutes. We had the sea food special for two, broiled, it came in under 30 minutes. It was as described and good but not great. The fish and shrimp were very good,... More

Dined here on our last night. This is your basic family owned restaurant. It is quaint and nothing fancy. The food was simple home cooked goodness. We ordered surf and turf which was a t-bone and dozen shrimp. Also, the broiled platter which was grouper, shrimp ands soft crab. All delicious . They have other southern meals on the menu... More

We went to Marina Seafood on night 2 of our Amelia Island vacation. After having a terrible experience on the first night at another restaurant on the beach, our son and his girlfriend insisted we try the Marina. We went close to closing, it seems everything closes early here... We were seated right away and given a seafood dip and... More
