With over 150 Tequila's from different regions of Mexico, Marina Cantina is home to the largest Tequila Bar on the Florida Panhandle.

“Mexico by the bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Very good food, very good service. It was definately not busy when I went, but by the size of the place I imagine it could get quite boisterous. Nice view of the marina.

“Great Food and Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Chicken Fajitas were great and a lot of food for one person. Pinto Beans were very good. Service was great---plenty of warm chips and salsa. We went Saturday night 2/10/13 after going to the Mardi Gras parade at Pier Park.

“Perfect Service and Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

My boyfriend and I went to the Marina Cantina on Wed. We were greeted right away and our server was great. He explained everything in detail and was very knowledgable of the menu. We had 3 types of margaritas and those were all great as well. The food was excellent! I had the carne asada plate and my boyfriend had some sort of chicken, shrimp and chorizo dish with cream sauce. Our plates were flavorful. a good size and they came with lots of little extras on the side. Oh and don't forget the beautiful view of the water. Good Stuff!

“Gross”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Food was old and gross! Tastes like it was sitting in kitchen for a year. Take your money and time somewhere else! Pick a authentic Mexican restaurant. This place needs to step up its game or it will go out of business.
