The food was good not great. Service was very good. Cute place. The bisque could use some chucks of lobster but the taste very good. Crab cakes were good as well. The lobster Mac and cheese needed seasoning

There's a real lot to like about The Marina, starting with the view of the West River. You're basically sitting almost in it -- that and a few good craft beers will take an edge of anyone's afternoon. We sat inside to get out of the wind, but even there the water glinting in the sun is right next to you. The surprise was the quality of the food. We had the ribs, which were smoky, fall off the bone tasty with a good BBQ sauce, and the Mahi special, which was excellent -- juicy and not overcooked, plated with a nice mango condiment and perfectly done roast potatoes. The only drawback was the noise -- lots of hard wood and metal surfaces reflect and seem to amplify voices, especially in the bar (then again, we were there on a Friday night and the place was packed). Highly recommended, and if you go not at a peak time, or sit outside, it will no doubt be a bit more peaceful.

I spent some time here, just leisurely sipping wine and noshing. I enjoyed being on the water, and the staff were exceptionally friendly and pleasant. The food was fine, especially the specials -- We did well when we asked for recommendations.

You know, we really try to like this place, but after four tries we've only had one good experience. With a lovely new building, beautiful setting (especially at sunset), nice atmosphere and good wait staff, it's still not working, and the problem seems to now be the kitchen. Recently it took over 45 minutes, on a quiet weeknight with tables only half full, to get two burgers and some mussels for the three of us, and by the time we got them they were barely warm. Not good, my friends. Please work on this.

Ate lunch there and was very impressed with the seating option, large outside area with shade and sun overlooking area. Lunch menu was diverse enough for most and the food was well prepared and delivered in timely fashion. Wait staff a little slow in checking in but not to the point of ruining what was a nice lunch overlooking the river. Will plan to go back for dinner, oh and get the clam chowder it was excellent.
