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

"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.
