I came to the Marina Cantina a few days after my birthday and could not have enjoyed the service more. Ask for Kurt when you go and you will not be disappointed! A+!

Great place and wonderful Margaritas and service was good. The rooftop wasn’t open so we were bit disappointed but get the Covid thing and business was slow.

We snagged a drink at the rooftop bar and they had a good selection of tequilas! Our servers, Ryan and Riley, were super kind and funny. They gave us great recommendations for the area and we really appreciated their hospitality. The rooftop has a great...view of the marina!More

Our waiter, Rick, was amazing! He told us the best stuff on the menu and was lightening fast. The salmon was delicious and we had a great view. The hostesses were a little rude though but we will definitely come back and ask for Rick!

A group of us from Tennessee came down for a work conference and stumbled upon Marina cantina, Rick is the BEST server we have encountered in Clearwater. The food recommendations along with making our favorite drinks really hit the spot. 5 star service and a...5 star employee. This is definitely a place to come visit with the beautiful bay view and great atmosphere! Make sure to request Rick (but ignore the hostess’) and get the chips and queso!More

$10 for a margarita. Nothing fancy, just a basic margarita. A little pricey for my taste. Great views.

Took my wife on a date here because we had heard good things about it. Great atmosphere and view, right on the water so you always get a good breeze, and perfectly positioned for a view of the sunset! Food was great, pray to whatever...god you deem fit that you get Richie as your server. Or maybe not because you just may hand over your first born as a tip. He’s great is what I’m getting at. 5 outta 5 would recommend to a complete stranger on a trip advisor review.More

The quesadillas are to die for!! Drinks are amazing and pretty much everything on the menus is delicious down to their chips. Our server Chris was very quick to check on us and accommodate anything we needed. Best restaurant we’ve been to in Clearwater so...far!!More

Let's start with Riley, he helped us through dinner and he was awesome, kind and knowledgeable of the menu. He gave us great recommendations and ordered most of them. Loved the atmosphere and the views too. Make sure you get the churros for dessert.
