Went here with the family since everyone wanted some good food, but couldn't decide on a specific cuisine. We were a little early for our reservation, and were asked to wait at the bar in order to get our harborside table ready. The bar service was friendly and prompt, and having TVs in the area was a nice plus (especially... More

The food was delicious. I went with two other friends and all three of us had the filet for dinner, salads, and the pork belly appetizer( so yum)! Service was also great. Our only complaint was that our food took a very long time to come out.... But other than that we had a wonderful time.

I recently ate at Marina Café and had a ratherly large party (18 people). I had the best service from a server name Brian. He was attentive, pleasurable, and just flat out awesome! Highly recommend. Shannon was assisting too and even the manager Wally came by to introduce himself and to check on our service. Our food was delicious and... More

It was a Friday night and Marina Cafe accommodated 8 of us with only a ten minute wait. The food was excellent and the harbor view was pretty! Prices were very reasonable, I think the most expensive thing on the menu I saw was a $50 steak so don't let appearances defer you from the awesome food. Ask for a... More

Went twice, mainly because we found out they have a 2 for 1 on most entrees between 5-6 PM. We had grouper, swordfish, redfish, shrimp, and duck. Duck was very good. We had the Calamari both times for appetizers, excellent. Service was good, they take reservations and we were seated promptly.

Food was fantastic and fresh, server was friendly, informative and attentive. Didn't realize the atmosphere was as upscale as it was, I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, and they treated me as if I was dressed to impress, which I really loved. Pricing for the restaurant was what you would expect for a high end establishment, and I actually... More

We've been eating at Marina Cafe on at least an annual basis for over 10 years, every time we're here on vacation. The atmosphere is nice, the view of the bay is great. The service is always very good. My wife always gets the prime fillet, I usually get their best seafood meal - redfish! It's got a Cajun seasoned... More

Great redfish dish and my husband had the catch of the day - tuna which was also delicious. We had a table by the window so we could see the sunset over the harbor. Our server was very attentive and we did not feel rushed at all. I do recommend to make reservations. They also have an extensive wine list.... More
