Always hit this place while in Destin. Love the Creamsicle Martini, the Filet Medallions, the Crab Crusted Grouper, and the Creme Brulee for dessert!
I would recommend this for couples and special occasions. Pricey. Definately go weekdays 5-6 for bogo specials!

We have been to Destin several times over the last few years. It's always fun going to new restaurants not available where we are from. I jumped on trip advisor and looked for a great restaurant and began reading reviews. We picked Marina Cafe because it was rated so high, we were not disappointed.
We arrived around 8:30 on a Saturday night in mid September. There was no wait and we were quickly greeted at the door. We were sat with a wonderful view of the bay. Our waiter was very polite and took our order quickly. We ordered scallops as an appitizer which came out quickly and was awesome. Our main course was supberb. My wife had the keylime pie dessert. I hate keylime pie but I have to say I even liked it.
The dinner was very nice and anyone who eats here will not be upset. It was expensive but to me, well worth the price. You should eat here if you want a great meal and not worried about $$$. Skip it if you don't want to spend some cash.

Good food and outstanding atmosphere and service, but priced like a restaurant a notch above its quality. That said, the happy hour is a great deal. Half priced sushi and pizza is very satisfying. Just about every drink is half priced, which is a good thing because the normal prices are too high. In short, if I came here for a regular dinner I'd feel like I was being ripped off but it's a great place from 5-7pm.
