    Margaritas are good. Don't recommend the fried baskets. Way too greasy. Atmosphere is great.

    Seafood platter but eating around dogs was a huge turn off! Never coming back!

    For New Englanders, the fried clam basket here is definitely not a "real" fried clam basket (aka one in Cape Cod).

    Do you want to relax? This is the right place. Order a Corina beer, some nachos and enjoy the nice view!

  • DC Dining A.

    Grab a seat on the upper level and watch the boats float by on a good day with a drink and some delicious crab nachos.

  • Jeff S.

    Bring the pup and enjoy a margarita and nachos. Terrific atmosphere.

    Cold, bad service. Fish tacos smelled fishy which is never a good sign but the steak tacos were delicious.

    Fish and shrimp tacos are great!

    The Margarita's a strong and the classic Cadillac Margaritas was amazing. Loved the Jambalaya Pasta.

    Great deck for drinking after work! Fun people watching. The nachos are fantastic!

    In addition to fish tacos, there are very good wraps filled with golden shrimp, a po' boy stuffed with juicy tomato slices and crunchy oysters, and a muffuletta that does justice to New Orleans. Read more

    Cantina Marina's patio and deck offer views, drinks, music and snacks right on -- make that over -- the Washington Channel. Read more

    I found out that they are known for there tacos & there is a reason for it. I got the steak tacos and was completely amazed on how good they were. The view was great! Go at sunset.

    Awesome little bar on the water. Hell or High Watermelon beer is the way to go. The Hippie Chick Sammy was also after I added a little ranch dressing (like a fattie) to it!

    The tacos aren't really enough to fill you up for a meal, but the nachos are.

    While you're in SW, might as well get a beer at Cantina Marina.

    Watch put if some dbag brings a cigar which they always do here unfortunately.

    Absolute fabulous to enjoy warm weather and sip on adult beverages, smoke cigars, and look at beautiful woman. Bartenders are wonderful.

    I shouldn't tell this secret but this is the perfect place to spend the 4th of July. Yummy beers/food plus a great view of the Washington Monument.

    My affection for Catina Marina is all about the location - open air bar on the marina. It's great for an after work drink in the spring and summer.

    The Steak Tacos are to die for and if you happen to be a shrimp fan, the BBQ shrimp are apparently awesome. (Plus it's dog friendly) Read more

    I wish the $11 tacos came with free napkins. Make sure you ask for them at least three times.

    Upgrade to fries! It's worth it!
