We arrived around 6:00 pm on a Thursday and the parking lot was almost full; so I was surprised when we walked in and were seated right away. We had a romantic table for two with a beautiful harbor view. Our waiter, Matthew, was pleasant and attentive. The bread with herbed oil was very good and it took restraint to... More

Because if a buy one, get one free promo, we went to dinner here with some friends. I called ahead for reservations and asked for a window seat, which they gave us. Totally glassed restaurant which looks out onto the water. Our waiter was excellent in knowledge about the wines and dinner selections. The Red Fish was great and the... More

Reservations recommended especially if you are planning on the buy one entree and get one free from 5:00-6:00 p.m. My wife had the seared scallops, corn leek tomato relish served over local zipper peas with asparagus coulis. I ordered the local gulf grouper with fire roasted corn-edamame bacon succotash in tomato shellfish broth over zipper peas. For dessert we ordered... More

My husband made reservations for here for our first wedding anniversary dinner and it was amazing! We were seated outside overlooking the marina and watched the sunset! Our waiter was great and was very thorough! Service was slow but not in a bad way at all...more so to make it a relaxing atmosphere! We had the Fried Green tomato appetizer... More

We always can't wait to visit Marina Cafe when we're in Destin. It's our favorite bar, also. They make the absolute best margaritas Up or Mexican martinis! Order one next time you go. Ask for Patron Silver with Grand Marnier and you will not be disappointed. We love their small plates or appetizers. They have a happy hour and serve... More

We've eaten here several times and took my parents this past weekend. As always, the food was SO good and the sunset view of the marina was stunning. If making a reservation, make sure you request a window seat, if available and then ENJOY!

We usually go here once a month and it is always good. I suggest going between 5 and 6 for the 2 for 1 pricing. It is an attractive place with great views of the harbor. Service is professional but can be slow at times. Food is always good.

My wife and I have been coming here for quite some time and must say this place rocks! If you are an early bird their 2 for 1 special if you order before 6PM is fantastic and their drink specials at the bar are great. With great service, excellent harbor views, and food that is wonderfully seasoned and prepared make... More

This restaurant has it all -- fantastic food, great service, beautiful views and a special price! This is a bit of a nicer place than many local restaurants with linen cloths and candlelight. Dining indoors or out on the balcony which overlooks the harbor and where we sat. My husband enjoyed the Andoille crusted Louisiana Redfish and I had the... More
