The Food service was very good as was the food. My wife wanted picture which we maid by the person at the front desk on the way out. The cafe... More

She had quite a few tables plus bar area to take care of and managed them all well. We had a drink and calamari for appetizer. It was good. The meal is... More

Marina cafe offers happy hour from 5-7pm in their bar area. We found seats at the bar but it seemed as if the whole bar section was first come first serve. We ordered appetizers to share - fish tacos, Thai chicken, fried red fish and a roll of tuna sushi. All the food was delicious! Very high quality ingredients with... More

Although I am reluctant to give a bad review on one visit, when I pay this much and am disappointed, I must be honest. I have my favorite seafood restaurants in Destin where I get delicious Grouper. As a result, I was surprised by getting overdone Grouper. And I mean way over cooked. Even though I am reluctant to give... More

First let me say that the restaurant/atmosphere was breathtaking, especially at night. I could not have chosen a better place to have my reception dinner this past October, the food came out fast for a party of 30+ the receptionist did everything she could to prepare me for the big day, she even offered to customize the menu for my...

Locals, snowbirds, and tourists need to take at least one visit to Marina Café while in the area. The view of the harbor is amazing, especially for late afternoon and evening meals. Food was very good and impressive. We had grouper and redfish and neither disappointed us. Sauces and condiments with the fish made it outstanding. Service was also very... More

We went here with friends on Saturday night. We were not real hungry so we had happy hour in the bar area. The seating at sun set is unbelievably beautiful. We had drinks and appetizers. The Fish Tacos were great. Our friends had a hamburger and one other dish. They said theirs was good as well. The service was prompt... More

Service was terrific. We had the andouille crusted redfish and the sautéed grouper. Both were outstanding. Don't let the minced andouille in the bread crumb crust on the redfish scare you because it is not hot but adds just a little kick. We also enjoyed the fried oyster salad very much. Couldn't get enough of the jalapeño bourbon bacon! We... More

First time at the Marina Cafe but we had a wonderful experience. We had a reservation and were seated immediately at a window table overlooking the water. Wait staff was friendly , informed about the choices and attentive. Sun set was beautiful and the menu offered both delightful seafood and fish entrees as well as Hand tossed pizzas. This variety...
