Awesome local restaurant with a lot of personality and great food!

Nothing fancy here, but a nice fun restaurant with really good food. Lots of coastal atmosphere too. A group of 5 of us, tired of winter decided to have a lunch on our first 70 degree day in a long time. We were rewarded with a good fun meal. After being seated, we saw we could eat out doors... read more

Our server Leanna was EXCELLENT, but everything else was mediocre to poor. Sent a drink back that was not to my liking, after taking one sip, only to be scowled at by both the owner and bartender for the rest of my dinner. Our fried seafood was okay, the salad was straight out of the bag and floppy. Topped off... More

Stopped by the Marina Cafe for a weekend evening dinner. From the outside appearance you would probably drive right by. Food quality was good, very friendly and pleasant staff. Our party selected a Seafood platter, Blacked Mahi Mahi, Tuna Steak and a Tuna Melt, all were enjoyed. Would also recommend the Carolina Crab Dip! Bob made sure we were satisfied... More

If you've never been here here you would probably just drive by. It's nestled next to the water just as you get near the bridge on South Marine Blvd. It has a nice atmosphere. The food is always great. There is a game room with pool tables and video games. They have a bar and outside seating. They also run... More

I had been there a year ago and felt the food was not that good. Wouldn't have gone back but a friend wanted to go. Had a shrimp burger and it was great! So good we went back again a few days later and again it was great. Service was good with servers friendly and helpful.

Service was amazing and the food was out fast and tasted great. Best kept secret in Jacksonville. Bob Has still got it. He talks to everyone and makes you feel like a regular. Beer was cold too. Give it a shot you won't be disappointed and if You are, Bobs there let him know.

Have eaten here several times over the years. Food is always prompt and fresh. Servers friendly, and attentive. Recently our HS class hosted our casual get together here. Plenty of space for this kind of gathering. Food once again excellent and well received, and the wait staff were friendly and gracious even keeping up with our large crowd. Casual atmosphere...

Was NOT pleased with this restaurant at all! I had read reviews which I should have taken their advice and not go their but we tried it anyways. Our table was dirty so I asked them to wipe it down, she did in one tiny circle not the entire table when there was 4 of us. Then it took around... More

When you drive up to the Marina Cafe it looks run down, don't let that fool you it is great. The service is top notch, the food is awesome, the crab dip is worth going in just for that. You can sit on the deck or even take a boat ride. Yes it is run down, but one of the... More
