“Lunch meeting for work”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

Place is great. The view of the river is great. Food is good and priced fair. Service was good and dining room is clean. Love the napkins. Great idea with them. None are alike. Will be coming back when in the area again for lunch.

“Food has gone downhill recently”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

After years of acceptable food - not great in a town with many excellent dining options - the Marina seems to have hired some even less inexperienced cooks than those they've had in the past . For haddock I received a previously frozen piece of mush topped with not even heated crumbs of some sort. It was terrible. I've gotten this before and it was actual fresh fish and fine. It should never have been served. Likewise, several of my recent food experiences there have been marginal - they need a new cook. If you want the best drinks in town - go to Fireworks. For inconsistent food and drinks, dine at the Marina and pay for the view. $6 for a local beer. Ridiculous. Sunday brunch is good for $13.

“Love the Marina”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We live in Brattleboro and love the Marina. Good food, great prices, fun entertainment and did I mention the view? The staff is friendly and never rushes you, no matter how busy they are. I had lunch there today with a friend and we were there over 2 hours, just catching up and we never felt rushed. The food is not exceptional but the service, atmosphere, and waterfront location are exceptional. They even offer entertainment with no cover. Great place to meet friends.

“Trap with a view”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Well worth the visit at sunset for a beer and the view. BUT, for years my company took me to free lunch there and I sampled most of their menu. The food is pedestrian. Period. Not terrible, presented nicely, service decent....but expensive and not particularly delicious.
