Have eaten here a few times and every thing I have tried has been good, from the fajitas to the prime rib. Service is good, and the prices are reasonable. here is a nice deck overlooking the river with tables. The also have a bar, and used to have djs and karaoke...not sure if they do anymore though.
I would recommend it.

This restaurant is situated on the river in Jacksonville NC off of route 17. Presently it is a little tricky entering the parking lot from the highway due to the road and bridge construction. The staff and manager were very nice and efficient. The building and deck are a little worn but it works. The deck faces the river and has tables with umbrellas. The menu offers simple fare with reasonable prices. Great for an afternoon lunch.

Talk about a wonderful dinner, - this was the place - great food, atmosphere, variety on the menu, everything you could ask for. Well cloth napkins are not here, but we were not looking for them. The food was just super, we had three completely different seafood plates, all done perfectly, service terrific, and the place has some personality. We are coming back — and we are from out of town.

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.
