We sat outside after dinner on the banks of the river watching the sunset. Very relaxing place yes the prices are a little higher, but... More

Wife and I went for supper. Wife got prime rib which was a little dry; cooked medium rare. Salad bar was good. I got raw oysters, which I thought were kinda small. One of them tasted with a "been there done that attitude. dead. I got the fried seafood platter which was good, but like another reviewer said about the... More

So I live here and this is probably the third time I have come to visit but we had a guest from out of state who had her heart set on eating here and wanted to treat me and my family. My last two visits weren't terrible but I find it way overpriced for the quality of the food. This... More

Ate dinner at Mariner's with grandson Thursday, July 23, 2015. Mariner's has a beautiful building with great view of Sibley Lake. We had the salad bar. We ordered Calamari with sweet chili sauce and both had the Acadian which was baked Tilapia with Crawfish Etouffee, baked potato and steamed broccoli. The Calamari was served in about 10 minutes. The restaurant... More

We dined at Mariner's one evening where the view on the lake was only surpassed by the delicious food. Our server, Bonita, was very attentive while not being intrusive.

Oysters on half shell were good, broiled plate of fish, more oysters, crab etc was very good. Had gumbo but missed the okra found in some. Wife had shrimp that was very satisfying. Resturant is on the lake so great view by the window while you eat. Waitress was attentive without being intrusive. Got to eat and enjoy! Will go... More
