“Beautiful location for friends, dates, or meetings. We had a relaxing date night with lots of food, nice wine, great locals, and sports tv playing.They do have indoor and outdoor seating. Special little place in our town.I had the ricotta tortellini with marinara & salad. The salad needs more love besides lettuce, but the dressing was great. It was a side salad and maybe that’s a restaurant thing.My guy had the buffalo chicken pizza. He really liked it. Plenty of leftovers.The wine is a nice blend, soft, red, smooth taste with a nice aroma. Try the wine.Amazing service!Vegetarian options: Pasta, soupParking: Easy parking“

“We stopped in to watch the Thursday Night Football game which they had playing! It was about 7 pm and it wasn't crowded at all! We loved the relaxed vibe and there was plenty of drinks options to choose from.They serve food but only a bit later in the evening. The bartender told us that they get busier around 10-2. This is a pretty great hidden gem!“

“Great place to go and chill and the food wasn’t bad, although a little overpriced but that’s to be expected for a tourist town. I will say that the Shrimp tacos were a little bland but overall still a good dining experience if you’re looking for a nice place next to the beach to watch the Sunset.“

Very cute outdoor eatery, I bring all my out-of-towners here.Parking: For the most part, there is plenty of parking however sometimes the lot does get full. As long as you use the kiosk inside the resturaunt to validate your parking, its free. If you don't, you will get a ticket in the mail so beware.Kid-friendliness: Small corn-hole setup at the front of the restaurant.“

My wife had the Islander with reggae rolls coconut shrimp and seafood gumbo. We both enjoyed a specialty drink. Big Ed’s tropical sensation and day at the beach, plus the key lime pie. Everything was top notch. Delicious and the service was great. The music volume was just right. What more can I say. This place was well worth the visit!!!“

“A bar is only as good as its staff and the staff at the Salty Duck deserves a 10 outta 10. The atmosphere gets a 10 outta 10 too. We went to the salty duck while at the beach for a bachelorette weekend and immediately upon walking in it was obvious we were the odd "ducks" out in a bar full of locals. We all questioned our decision worried that it would not be the greatest experience. I'm glad we stayed because it was the best experience. Matt, DJ, and John were fantastic bartenders who made the evening so much fun. The doorman was helpful and super nice. The music was perfect and fit the vibe. The beer was cold and with a great selection you can't go wrong. I will definitely go back when visiting the area. Easily the best bar I've been to in a long time. Went for the drinks and stayed for the people.“

“As expected and worth the $$$. Well packaged pick up order. Delicious tuna dip, gumbo, and steamers.Back again in April 2024. Got the Surf and Turf (NY Strip and Shrimp) and the Surf and King (NY Strip and King Crab). Both come with complimentary house salads, red potatoes, and a vegetable medley.Medium-Rare steaks were cooked well, and plates had good portions of shrimp and crab with the 12 ounce steak. Might seem pricey, but it's quality food, and you'll leave stuffed. Great service today, too.Parking: There is some parking in the back.“

The food is great, the atmosphere.... Perfection. Plus most nights they have great live music during their killer happy hour. Additionally, the view of the sunset is incredible. I recommend Marina Cafe to all my friends and will continue to do so. 10/10 food, 25/10 bar.

“Update 3/30/24 coconut shrimp still not on the menu but just as amazing. Service was significantly better. Bairdi Crab was delicious and good portion for the price. Cajun Chicken Pasta was super good with just the right amount of kick. Kid menu is very small.The food was good but the service wasn’t. We went at an odd time of day (3ish) but didn’t get our order drink until after appetizers had been delivered. Had to legit wave our server down during meal for refills and extra napkins. That being said, the food was much better! King Crab was flavorful, easy to crack, and the sides were well cooked. Coconut Shrimp with orange marmalade (not on the physical menu) was awesome! Raw Oysters were good but very small, obviously fresh caught.Vegetarian options: Had a vegetarian pastaParking: The restaurant shares parking with public beach access so always busy and hard to find a spot“

“Great social atmosphere and solid/good food. Karaoke and related entertainment after the beach was fun. Had the famous burger and wife had muffuletta sandwich. Both were excellent. Went during happy hour and had to ask/confirm with waitress who kinda played dumb regarding specials/timing (two occasions with same waitress unfortunately- second time was a test to see how she would respond). Otherwise she was fine, service and drinks were good, especially the Bloody Mary's.“
