We've been coming to the Marina Civic Center for probably close to 20 years for National Dance Finals. It is simply an excellent facility for this type of function. Clean, well cared for, and efficently operated.

Great acoustics. There really aren't any bad seats, they go from good to excellent! I've seen many artists at the Marina Center, it's always a well run showcase.

We parked our car at the Civic Center and walked to Bayou's Joe's. Not fancy at all but great water views with quick service and cheap prices. Food was good and had cheap drinks also. Fun place to eat.
