Hubby had the hamburger and salad. Both were cooked fine and he enjoyed his meal. Son had the Reuben and a salad. Reuben bread was soggy but the amount of meat was good. I had the seared tuna appetizer. A bit overpriced. Tuna was dull pink, not seared just cooked, smelled very sour to me and tasted bad. Offered a... More

From the first bite..Delicious! I had the chorizo breakfast burrito and it was full of flavor and substance. The tortilla, sausage, eggs, onion and cheese were nicely balanced, not too much of one ingredient. The Salsa was also good, a little smokey and sweet. The patio on the canal is quite and nice for a morning cup of coffee, newspaper... More

We wat outside and the view of the canal was nice, although I am not fond of picnic tables. There is no alcohol, so drinks are limited unless BYOB. The food was not extraordinary and was somewhat overpriced. I got the cabbage rolls which were supposed to come with boiled parsley potatoes. I didn't want boiled potatoes so asked to... More

Family get together, we ordered red snapper and received the largest fish portion I can remember. The owner makes all the dishes from scratch, even better! The rest of the order was cabbage rolls & cocunut shrimp, everyone agreed, great fresh food. With the combination of wonderful service, outdoor dining and great food, a must try!

I've visited the Marina Cafe several times while on business. I've never ordered off of the menu, but have always had one of the daily specials, usually whatever is recommended by the owner/chef. He has never steered me wrong yet. Excellent food and generally unique specials. The cafe interior is dated and in need of a remodel, but I always... More

Visited Marina Café for the second time tonight. Last week, I had a skillet steak with jambalaya rice and spinach. It was good. Tonight, I took a couple of friends for dinner. It was customer appreciation night (nice surprise), so food and drink on the back deck were free. The music was a little loud for my spouse, so we... More

First, I need to say that I have not have any menu item the was disappointing. This is a small venue that will provide a tremendous surprise for those lucky enough to find it (on 2094 in strip center across from Target and Home Depot). I am sure that your first visit will not be your last. Great friendly service,... More
