The food is ok, but does not worth the price. Service was terrible. The waiter was nice, however the restaurante put just one waiter to take care of too many tables, to get orders, serve drink and food. It is not prepared for busy seasons. It took us more than one hour to have or food after complaining a lot.

Friendly staff. Good bar service. Great balcony view of the Destin harbor. Outside dining was available but the tables didn't look very comfortable compared to the inside seating. Wait staff was very busy. Ours only needed a bit of prompting. Food was good but expensive for "local" seafood. Good for a special occasion or if you can afford expensive dining.

We have eaten at Marina Cafe for more than 25 years. This year our son ordered a rib eye & said it was the best he'd ever eaten. My husband and I were skeptical but upon savoring 1 bite we confirmed his review. Surprisingly, it was the best WE had ever eat too. Congratulations, MC as my hubs grills some... More

Beautiful view from almost every seat in the house. All the food was great, and prices are about what you would expect for fine dining at the beach. Service was mostly good, but there were a few missteps (took a long time to get drinks, wine not served at appropriate temp). The appetizers and small plates are all good, so... More

Nice adult atmosphere for dinning. Exceptional food, being from New Orleans area, we typically don't think other areas restaurants compare favorably, but this Chef was trained by Emeril. The food was the best we had ever had. Cocktails were great. Service was great. Wonderful choice of wines from around the world. As for deserts, the coconut cream pie was outstanding.... More

Staff are courteous and well trained, menu has very good variety, chef prepares dishes well, bar has a great vibe and view at sunset. A few months back I had a larger group and we sat in the private dining room which was a nice setting and private... More

Been awhile since we had a grown up date night and the Marina Cafe was just the ticket! Our server Angelia suggested the cobia as it was the last week of the season. She was so right! She brought our drinks which were a generous pour, fresh warm bread and then a delicious dinner. Along with the view it was... More

It was my husband's turn to choose a place for dinner,and as we left Duck, Duck ( a great bar nearby), it was clear he had done NO research about where to eat. He turned into the Marina Cafe,and we walked in to get a table. This is a place where many locals go, so it does feel like we... More

Expensive for two. One of the meals was delicious the other just okay. Wait staff was good and the bread was really good. Just call and ask about their specials. Something about buy one get one free which would have been great but we didn't get there then.
