For 7 years we have been coming to Destin, and I had never eaten here. I think the cafe part threw me off a bit. But this time we were in Destin for our 20th anniversary, and I wanted to have the best dining experience possible. I took a shot in the dark and went to the Marina Cafe, after reading some great reviews here. Everything was absolutely perfect. We didn't have reservations but were still seated immediately. It was if our arrival was a special occasion guys, and that made everyone feel better! This was in October so sort of off season. Sean was our waiter and did a wonderful job. The food, oh man what an experience. We had the red fish and a shrimp rice something my wife had but try the red fish. The shrimp were huge too. It's a shame so many other restaurants couldn't be like this. We ate at several "chain" places, all of which made me feel bad afterwards, every single one of them, but not here. Each bite was so delicious I didn't want to swallow it. I have never been taken back by a bite of fish before, never, until I ate here. If you're thinking of going, go. You'll see.
