If you're in Destin this place is a must! Great good. Great atmosphere. Great management and service. You will be missing out if you don't go.

Excellent diner: blackened grouper cheeks ; grilled swordfish served with garlic/bacon spinach; Natura sauvignon blanc; fresh bread to dip in delicious olive oil seasoning mixture. Amazing view: Needs to serve more tables outside for dining. Move the plant obstructing the walk way on the terrace. It is one of our favorite diner spot.

We sat outside. The view was amazing. The food was only ok. The restaurant needs updating. Cocktails and apps were lovely.

Very lovely restaurant, however, service was really bad. We were there on a Saturday night and it was prom time. We were told to wait at the bar for 5 minutes. Finally decided to just eat in the bar room. Finally got a menu and waited and waited. Bartender came for our order. I ordered a filet and my friend... More

We have been coming to Destin for 30 years. Last night we tried the Marina Cafe for the first time. We've been kicking ourselves ever since. Why have we not been before?!

Food was poor to average . Service was poor, not enough to servers for dining room. Dirty dishes left on the cart next to us the entire evening... The restaurant is dated and has seen its better days . Won't return ....

We went to the Marina Café in Destin for a winter Happy Hour meal. The bar side of the restaurant is the place to go for gastronomical bargains! The menu is pretty extensive for Happy Hour in Destin, most places only offer about 5 choices. While enjoying the awesome views of the harbor, we were served at a high top... More
