After a week of being ripped off in Orlando, finding the Marina Restaurant for a snatched meal for our party of 2 adults and 4 teens before heading out on a boat teip restored our faith in the American dining experience. The food was excellent, the portions very substantial (the salads resembling small mountains rather than meals) and the value unbeatable. Jo, our server, was very attentive and kept us amused throughout, particularly when asking Big Gus if he was a "bottle baby". If time permits we shall definitely be back.

Food is consistently awesome! Small diner atmosphere with great service. We ate there everyday of our vacation. Be careful though as they close at 4:00pm.

So happy to find this place after the folks at Capt Memo's Pirate Cruise directed us here... they said they could feed us quickly before our cruise and they did.

This small little place is no frills, good food done quickly. The four of us had breakfast in 25 minutes from start to finish. The ladies that served us were quick and attentive. By the way, its cheap which is a RELIEF from all the gimmicky overpriced stuff that's available once you're there. The bill was $20.28 for the four of us (without tip) and all of our belly's were full. I felt like we robbed the place.

No wait, good food - awesome. Will definitely come back. One side note: when we left my son had a bag of trail mix that he had brought in with him. The servers didn't complain he had brought his snack in (most places would) and he had left it behind when we departed. After we realized that it was left behind, he went back and the server had held it at the bar. good folks all the way round...

Definitely coming back here when we return.

Arriving in Clearwater early afternoon, we couldn't WAIT to get over to the Diner. Just as expected, sort of busy, but not too busy to greet us as if we were locals and being the wonderful place, once again, we have visited every trip. Breakfast items are INCREDIBLE, burgers are out of this world, and I sure wish we could have a place like that in this big city we live in. (Nashville, TN) Congratulations, Marina Restaurant, you are absolutely the BEST. (Try the eggs & corned beef hash sometime. My goodness!)

My husband started walking over to this place for breakfast from our hotel, while letting my daughter and I sleep in a little on our Clearwater Beach vacation. He would rant and rave about how wonderful the food was and finally convinced me to join him on about our 4th day. Wow, I was missing a treat! Great omelettes!! Very quaint and comfortable setting, waitress staff very friendly! I look forward to going back on our next vacation there to Clearwater Beach!
