We enjoy experiencing new restaurants. We drove 1.5 hours to experience Marina Cafe. The positive experience is the view of the bay. However, that is where the positive review concludes. The martinis came in room temperature glasses with a tad too much vermouth in them. Our food came out Luke warm at best. We both had the Andoulli crusted Redfish.... More

Wolly is always a pleasant host and makes us feel very comfortable. Derrick was our waiter and he was very accommodating. The food was awesome, everything from Ceaser salad to the entree. We come to Marinara Grill every time we head to Destin! Delicious!

This place has been around for ever and their dishes have too. They need a fresh look inside the Restuarant and the menu needs a do over too. The food is not bad but you can't really tell since it's covered in sauces! The service is good but have a slight flair toward arrogance . Better upscale Restuarants in the... More

We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and this place was recommended to us. The ambience and decor were perfect and we were able to sit by the window to see the boats in the harbor.

This was our favorite meal of the week. Our experience was much better than the Beach Walk at Henderson Inn. We had a table by the window. We loved the food and service was excellent. They treated us like royalty. For couples or a group of adults, this is the place. Make reservations through Open Table.

I was impressed with everything I ordered. The atmosphere is very relaxing and they play jazz music over the speakers. My sushi was delicious and the prices on everything aren't that bad. Most romantic place in Destin.

Went for a date night without the kids. Beautiful scenery on the harbor. I'm sure it's even better at sunset. The food as always was delicious. Everything on the menu was tasty. The attention to detail is spot on. Great place for a romantic dinner.

Thank Jon C
