“Great girls trip dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Marina cafe was amazing. Great food and wine. The view of the marina from the large windows provided great ambiance. Our service was friendly but slightly rough around the edges. I will definitely be back.

“Really Nice Evening Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We really enjoyed our visit to the Marina Cafe! The maitre d's greeting at the door was friendly and he congratulated us on our anniversary. Our table had a beautiful view of the harbor, and our waiter was friendly and efficient. I had the shortrib appetizer and the redfish entree. Apparently the redfish has been a staple of the menu for a long time, and it was easy to see why - it was delicious. My wife had ahi for a starter and pasta for a main, and she enjoyed both of these also. Coconut cream pie for dessert - yum!

After dinner the maitre d recommended we take our glasses of wine outside on their back deck for a perfect view of the Thursday night fireworks. This added a special touch to the evening that we really appreciated. Food was delicious, service was excellent and personal, and the setting was beautiful. What's not to like?

“OMG Will go back again and again!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Our waiter was Chris H and he was perfect. Our food was excellent and we could not have asked for a better night! We had 5 adults and 1 child(7yo). We ordered a couple of bottles of wine both excellent. We had several alcoholic drinks OMG they were perfect! Bread was crisp crust and soft in the middle. Our food orders consisted of NY strip, Ribeye, Pasta, Redfish and Duck. My Redfish was the favorite. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Creme Brulee and Coconut Creme Pie where our desserts. They both were wonderful! All in all this will be one of our favorite places to eat while in Destin.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I came here late with some friends and the manager still sat us graciously. The waiter was knowledgeable and willing to give suggestions. Everyone liked their food. The shrimp and grits was so fresh and filling. The atmosphere is excellent. Would definitely come back to try more items on the menu.
