When we finally got our food...Andouille crusted redfish was very tasty. My husband said his filet mignon excellent and the chicken penne was delicious.

It's a nice place to go for a couple's date night.

Three words, short blonde bartender. Never coming back. Felt like I was a bother even being there. Food was great, prices were decent, customer service was awful, minus the immediate and genuinely friendly greeting coming in the door. Not to mention all of the, what seemed to be, bad mouthing other employees. As well as dropping my wife and I's check down and not saying "thank you".

Marina Cafe has been a Destin must for years. The food has always been very good to excellent. The service has always been friendly, relaxed, but professional. We recommend ordering fish which is always is fresh and fixed perfectly.

My husband and I just finished the best meal we have had in Destin while on vacation!! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding!! Mickie our waitress was amazing she knew the menu inside and out and was able to help us decide on the best option since their was so much to choose from. Mickie's personality was second to none she made the evening so enjoyable!! Can't wait to return next September to this fabulous restaurant!!
