The prices at Marina Cafe are hard to beat and the food is satisfying. We weren't sure what to expect on our first visit and were pleasantly surprised. This is a casual restaurant with a social environment with a very large selection of "casual", affordable food. The nachos are enough to share with four people as an appetizer. We went once with a couple who have three young children; they were shocked to pay less than $40. Plus, the kids loved the parrot! (He was in his cage in the game room, seperate from the dining area) I have only been to the Marina Cafe three times, but I recommend it for anyone looking for a relaxed bite to eat without wanting to spend much of money.

A beach themed bar and grill. Agood place to have a gathereing of 15-20 of your friends. Waterfront environment, tour boats launch from there. Convinient to all points in town. Good food and spirits. Definitely an adult establishment. The parrot does bite.

This is a good choice if you are tired of eating at the chain restaurants. Very good food, reasonably priced with good service. Get anything seafood..

I've been to the Marina Cafe about five times. It is perfect for those who want to get away from the typical chains. It looks run down on the outside but it is better on the inside and has a nice view of the water. The service is friendly and the food is decent. There are some video games to keep kids or overgrown kids entertained if need be.

I always get the philly cheese steak and am always happy with how it comes out. In fact, I probably shouldn't have written this review before lunchtime ;)

I have been trying to enjoy this place for some time now. Every time I go, it keeps reminding me why I don't go back. This place is filthy and the food is greasy! If someone cleaned this place up and got rid of a few of the deep fryers, it may come around. The sad thing is, it's on great real estate and it's going to waste!
