As parents of the groom, we selected the Marina Cafe to host the rehearsal dinner for the wedding party. We reserved the private dining room to offer a beautiful view and intimate gathering space for 12 guests. Everything was outstanding - the service, the food, and the atmosphere. Our servers, Michael and Neila, provided us with excellent, attentive service. Before the guests arrived, Michael reviewed the menu to assist in the wine selection, and Neila helped me set up the decorations that I had brought for the occasion. Prior to the event, I had selected a special menu for our guests. Michael did a excellent job describing each item on the menu and how each one was prepared. Everyone raved about how delicious the food tasted. It was a very successful, special evening, and we will certainly return to the Marina Cafe on our next visit to Destin to have a wonderful dinner. We highly recommend this restaurant for any special event you may be hosting. S.W. Davis, Marietta, GA

Lovely restaurant with beautiful ocean views. The attentive staff are very knowledgeable about the menu.
The food is excellent!! I had the Grouper and my husband the Andouille Crusted Snapper. My Grouper was very good but that Snapper was Incredible. Will go back every time we hit Destin.

Had a excellent dining experience at this restaurant. Wait staff was pleasant and attentive. Happy Hour - drinks 1/2 price. Great bar. Dinner - get there for the 2 for 1. Exceptional food. Best I have had in Destin and I have been here for 2 1/2 months. When making our reservation, we asked for a window table. When we got there the owner said "do you want a window table" or "a table with the best view"? He suggested we sit in the first row of tables on the second level.......great choice. You actually see over the people at the window tables and enjoy a better panorama of the harbor. Go second level in place of a window table!!
A must do dining experience for those looking for delicious food, wine, and atmosphere.
