Not the prettiest place I have ever been but really good food, really good vibe, and a great staff. Fact is its old looking but in a good way. We only had one bad experience but I think the young lady was new and she tried her best. Recommend the patty melt!!!!!

The place is pretty big and they have indoor and outside seating. Service was very good and the food was served in a timely manner. I ordered a flounder sandwich which was very good, but I thought was a little on the small side for the price. My girl friend had a BLT, she said was very good, but again... More

We were here a year ago and had to come back when we returned to Jacksonville. The food was just as good as it was a year ago. The shirmp and the hush puppies are so good. The fried oysters we another big hit at our table. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Be sure to visit jo-jack the parrot on the outside deck. Great food, great joint. Doesn't look like much from the outside but very cool place.

Went there tonight with our friends and it was okay. The staff was friendly and the food was decent. Nothing to write home about.

Food and drinks were reasonably priced. Crab dip appetizer was excellent. I had shrimp platter. Lightly breaded but smaller type, Cole slaw and hush puppies were good. Wife had mahi mahi which she liked. Serve all types of food.

On first glance, Marina Cafe may not appear to be the best dining spot in Jacksonville. Once you get your food, you immediately find out this is not the case. The food was delicious and plentiful, while the staff was friendly.

Great place to come on a sunny day and sit out in their deck and look out to their Marina and inlet. Food and staff are phenomenal! They even have a friendly parrot that loves to chat. Great for kids or just some friends enjoying some great seafood.

It's a margiritaville kind of place with the laid back decor and attitude. I went solo one nite and went back the next nite. The service was very good both notes. The oyster app was as good as I've ever had. The manager crowed about getting oysters from all and therefore negating the "off season". I went back the second... More
