Group of four friends enjoyed a wonderful dinner the other night. Good food, service, wine. Would return for the grouper special with purple hull peas any time. So delicious!

Note: My friend has an allergy to all seafood and nuts. They grill their chicken and steak separately from the fish and are genuinely concerned about food allergies (which isn't always the case).

What a lovely dining experience we had. Our first visit to this restaurant was very enjoyable. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated to a very nice table with a lovely view of the water and boats and coastline. Our waiter was professional, warm and friendly. He recommended a lovely wine and helped with our entree selections. We ordered the duck and the grouper. Both delicious. Highly recommend Marina Cafe.

We arrived around 6:00 pm on a Thursday and the parking lot was almost full; so I was surprised when we walked in and were seated right away. We had a romantic table for two with a beautiful harbor view. Our waiter, Matthew, was pleasant and attentive. The bread with herbed oil was very good and it took restraint to avoid filling up on it before our meal. My husband and I both ordered the ribeye steaks. They were tender and cooked to perfection. I believe it was their homemade worcestershire sauce that put their steaks above other restaurants. We took leftovers home, sliced thin, put on Kings Hawaiian buns, and had the best steak sliders the next day.

Because if a buy one, get one free promo, we went to dinner here with some friends. I called ahead for reservations and asked for a window seat, which they gave us.
Totally glassed restaurant which looks out onto the water. Our waiter was excellent in knowledge about the wines and dinner selections. The Red Fish was great and the couple we were with said the Grouper was good too.
Would we go again? Absolutely.
