Good food nice atmosphere

My family and I (husband and 3 children 6, 2 and 6 months) ate here quite a few times and the food is always good. Most recently I tried the crab melt with fries and it was delicious. The seafood is really good here. They had cute little things for my kids to play with while we waited. We got... read more

Waterfront seating sounded nice for the family to eat dinner on a Saturday. However, we instantly became uncomfortable from the dirty plastic table and chairs, along with the unswept dock floor. Gave the food a shot, and was disappointed. The jambalaya was made with a canned tomato sauce, and everything was so expensive for the bland flavors. Do not recommend... More

This was my first visit and my husbands second. We went on a Saturday night hoping to get some crab legs. We got there at 815 only to be told they were out of crab legs. My husband ended up getting the ribeye with rice pilaf and the red potatoes. I had the shrimp alfredo. My husband liked the steak... More

We liked the outside ambiance! However, everything else was poor to maybe average. Decent prices, good services but the food was disappointing. Bummer, we wanted to like this restaurant.

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

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. No...

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.
