“Very Nice Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

This was a nice restaurant in a lovely location at the intersection of two rivers. Every seat should have a water view. There is dining inside on two levels as well as outside right above the boats in the marina, hence the name. The food was not fancy but it was very tasty and prepared just right. I'm sure that six days a week the atmosphere is delightful. However, we happened to be there on a Thursday evening which was a local talent night. The first vocalist couldn't hit one note. It was painful. The good news was that the set only lasted about twenty minutes. So, by the time our food came out he was done. Hopefully never to return and ruin anyone else's meal.
Other than that, I would certainly return when in this area.

“Delicious and Peaceful ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Had an Amazing and delicious dinner at a table right overlooking the water. I had butternut squash ravioli (which were 100% delicious!!) and my husband had lamb sliders (which he loved). Great atmosphere. I would highly recommend this establishment! Enjoy!

“Very good, but not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

I like the atmosphere of this place. Not a bad seat in the place. Its nice to look out on the water while you visit with your mate(s) and eat dinner. I've had the lobster and scallop pot pie a couple of times, and its delicious. I wish they'd offer mashed potatoes though! Or even baked. Plus the only veggie is green beans. The choices are very limited there. This is the main reason I give it only a very good. Plus, the lobster mac & cheese was nice, lots of nice big chunks of lobster. However, they were VERY skimpy on the cheese sauce. It was like macaroni sprinkled with a bit of cheese sauce. I like the pasta swimming in the stuff. Even Stouffer's mac & cheese is better than this, even though they are using a premium cheese. Its pretty dry because of the lack of the sauce. I don't recommend it. We also got a lobster and shrimp pasta with pesto (really??? where was the pesto??) and feta. It sounded really good on the menu, but was BLAH!!!!

“The Marina, Brattleboro, Vermont”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

We were seated outside on the deck with a very nice view. The service was very good, attentive without being rushed. Our dinners were excellent. Not overly creative but very tasty and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Average meal and lousy service ruin this nice spot on a lake”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

The service was very lackluster. We waited too long for some attention from a server. It was not packed but the kitchen was slow. My meal was served incorrectly without a special condiment identified in the description. When we finally got ahold of the waiter, he forgot to make the correction in the kitchen and we had to ask for the correction twice. The hamburger and fish sandwich were average; the rolls were dry and tasteless. He told us he was sorry 3 or 4 times during the meal but there was no correction on the Bill or offer to make amends. It might be a good place to drink in the bar but don't bother with the food. It
was sorry, indeed. Not worth the money.
