Went to have an easy lunch here a couple of weeks ago and was absolutely disgusted by the new "show your vax documents" policy. This is in an area where most businesses are even flexible with mask wearing, and there's plenty of outdoor seating, so...this is ridiculous. Won't be a patron here anymore!More

The Marina has fabulous seafood — I love the fish and chips — and friendly service. They also have a lovely, safe, outdoor deck overlooking the river. They also have a vaccination requirement for entering. Thanks for keeping us safe!

Great customer service. Staff and hostess are very friendly. A nice place to have a glass of wine on the back deck overlooking the West River.

Been a customer of The Marina for many many years! Have always loved the location and the atmosphere! They recently updated the menu and it’s better than ever! I’m always excited to see what the daily specials are as there’s always such a great variety...of new items!More

Every experience we've had at The Marina has been above par! There food is delicious and clearly made to order. The service is delightful and they are extremely Covid conscience. It's the only indoor place that I feel any safety bringing my kids.

Sitting outside having lunch with family on a nice day looking out at the water is lovely. Vaccinated-only makes it feel that much safer. Plenty of other places to go if you don’t like the policy.

This is a really good seafood place that is modestly priced, and in a setting overlooking a lake with boats. I had one of the specials of the day...a jumbo shrimp and scallop pasta dish with a delicious cream sauce. I also had some of...the fried shrimp...far better tasting than anything a chain seafood restaurant has to offer. My only complaint is that there could have been more seafood in my main dish. There were only three shrimp and three scallops. There is plenty of seating...both inside and out. There was no air conditioning in the indoor section this day...and the door to the patio was left open for aeration, making the humidity a bit uncomfortable. I would recommend any visitor try this place for a good seafood experience, though.More

This place has gone downhill quite fast. It used to be much better.I certainly can blame the pandemic for much of that they've lost a lot of staff and then got all new stuff that unfortunately the kitchen staff really isn't that good. I started...with the lobster bisque which I think was the Blount brand. It's a soup brand that restaurants will sometimes buy. It was okay. For my main I had the clam strips as there were no whole belly clams available.they were terrible but without a doubt it was something that I could buy at a grocery store in the freezer section.the sweet potato fries however were very good but then again you could buy those at a supply stores such as restaurant Depot, or Sysco or US foods. Richard had the tilapia sandwich. I told him to get the fish and chips. The tilapia sandwich was definitely dry. The fries were definitely vendor sourced because I look like the fries that we go through our food service that come from Sysco. Showing head The shrimp basket. Each shrimp would absolutely identical. Definitely this came from a grocery store or a real low brand way below what I normally expect Sysco to provide. They were quite overcooked and quite dry. The wait was nearly an hour to get in which unfortunately is a waste of time considering the poor quality of the food if you want to drink yes definitely it's a great place to get a drink because you can sit right outside and drink in the parking lot under you don't even need to go in and eat dinner. the white stuff was definitely very good and did endeavor to do a good job and I tipped them accordingly. Location without a doubt is to me always been the real draw. You get to look over where the West River / Rock River merge with the Connecticut River. Very scenic.unfortunately we're probably going to pass this place by for the next couple years until things stabilized and hopefully they get some good properly trained kitchen staff. I mean anybody can open up a box and follow the directions if they can read.More

The staff is friendly and welcoming. Nice views of the pond/lake. Food was good overall, although the fish and chips were over cooked. Chowder is excellent. Prices are reasonable.

Arrived as walk in on a very busy Thursday night. Parking lot was overflowing and hostess indicated we had a 30 minute wait. Went to bar for a drink when a wonderful waitress motioned us to follow her and she seated us immediately at a...window table overlooking the river with great views of the setting sun. Server was very helpful, personable and attentive. Salads were huge, fresh, crisp and tasty. The berry beet salad had lots of red beets, strawberries, blueberries with a delicious mint dressing. The extremely large order of mussels were tender and very tasty in a white wine broth accompanied by delicious moist, crusty bread great for dipping. The bottle of Sauvignon Blanc was perfect finish to a delicious meal.More
