Great! Dale was exceptional! We arrived 30 minutes before closing. However, we were served with warm smiles, great conversation, and exceptional food!
We really enjoy the ambiance of fine dining with the bonus of the buy one get one free entree before 6:00. This allows us to try appetizers, etc., and have a lovely meal for less than you might normally expect a dinner of this calibre.
We love coming here when we are here for the winter!
Ryan is our favorite bartender and is the best!
We celebrated our final night with a delicious dinner and the service was outstanding as usual!
Thanks Marina and all your awesome staff for a memorable evening!

Great service and good food! Steak was cooked perfect and very tasty.
We had a very bad experience. Waited 20 minutes at bar to get a drink. Then waited another 15 to get our bill. The flank steak was so tough even though we ordered medium rare that both my husband and myself could not eat it. The corn bed was so salty it was also impossible to eat. Waited 45 minutes to get our food. Marina Café used to be my favourite place to eat but not sure I will return.
Great food, service and classy environment.
Very good food and service. For some reason each time I go I have had to wait 10-15 minutes beyond my reservation time. No offer of a drink on the house, let alone an apology. But worth the wait.
Have been coming to the MCR for over 20 years now and it remains the best the Emerald Coast has to offer. Happy hour, food, view, service and because of 241 meals, it is the best value for fine dining. Bryce was excellent in recommending our choices and attending to our table. Can't wait to come back again and again.
We enjoyed our Valentines dinner there. The food was out of this world!! Love eating there the view is out of this world. The only bad thing was kids screaming so loud folks ask to move. But we will be back and soon
Restaurant was a little more formal than expected. The host made me remove my hat, which left me super uncomfortable for the duration of the visit. My girlfriend's steak was a little overcooked. The server did ask if she wanted a new one, though. Otherwise, the service and food was great.
We have been eating here many years. Got a late last minute Valentine’s reservation and enjoyed it. Especially as it was our beach wedding day!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
No connections between bar and table,out of 4 two orders were good,prices were steep for the quality.
Our waiter, Soc, was EXCELLENT!
Marina Cafe is a beautiful venue with a very extensive menu. The food was delicious and the view was fantastic!
"My girlfriend and I went there for a pre-Valentine's Day dinner to beat the rush. The dinner and entire experience from the time we walked in was exceptional. We had the signature dish, Andouille-crusted redfish (impossible to find elsewhere in the area) and the yellowfin tuna. Both were off the charts!!! Our waiter Bryce was attentive, responsive and courteous without being intrusive -- the perfect balance for a world class server. He is consistently professional. Dave Owen, Manager, was very engaging and congenial to us as well. He is obviously passionate about his business and ensuring a great experience for all his customers. As for the previous review about being judged by what he was wearing -- I strongly disagree. However, as a local for 24 years -- I find that dressing up (rather than wearing beach or workout casual clothes like most tourists) is showing respect for this upscale restaurant and they treat you accordingly. My inside tip - enough said.... "
Marina Cafe is my "go-to" restaurant for both special occasions and just great dining. I usually dress "business casual", but have seen everything from suits to shorts, there. It doesn't open until 5:00pm, but from 5-6 pm there is a great "buy one entree, get one free, with some restrictions". The food is always superb.
Arrived at 6:30P very busy. Seated right away. Had to wait ten + minutes or so to get in a drink order. Everyone seemed to enjoy their choices although my selection of tuna was just barely warm. Not the best of experiences. I've been to the Marina Grill in the past with better results than were had with this evening. I will likely come back as hopefully this experience will be a one off.
Always a fine dining treat. Great ambience and excellent service.
Wonderful meal excellent service .
We are never disappointed
Excellent experience and food
