“Worse Bouillabaisse on the Planet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Celery absolutely swamped the Bouillabaisse. It was un-eatible. The clam chowder was nothing but flour. There was no taste of clams. The seafood platter was terrible. Fish is a delicate food. It needs to be treated with care and respect. The Cafe Marina cooks (chefs ?) clearly do not underterstand this concept.

“Cafe Marina”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

An OK restaurant of mediocre quality in a very pleasant setting. The service offered was nothing special. We both had the red snapper which enjoyable. The baked potatoes tasted as if they'd been cooked the previous day.
I would not return to or recommend the Woodley Island Cafe, although I have no idea where in Eureka you can find a decent meal.
($37 for 2, excluding service & drinks, including tax)

“not worth the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Very nice view from the restaurant but food was not that good. Even after the 10% off coupon we got from our hotel, our final bill was still high.
