    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

    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 thebomb.com after I added a little ranch dressing (like a fattie) to it!

    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.

    I didn't expect much and was nearly blown away. The beer and micheladas were good (and cheap), food was delicious and fried (but of course), and the view was awesome.

    What a beautiful view of the water! I ordered the steak and chips with queso, and it was delicious! Our server was very friendly and attentive.

    Like the other reviews...its crowded, but grab a table, the food is OK, and the atmosphere is great! An excellent spot for sunset & outdoors

    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.

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

    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

    Cantina is a sweet outside bar in the Southwest Marina. Just a few short blocks from The SW-Waterfront Metro, and across the street from Arena Stage. Menu is seasfood/Mexican fare with TONS of drink

    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.

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

    The frozen raspberry margaritas are a little too sweet, but the frozen strawberry margaritas are damn delicious. Order them!

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

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

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

    If you like migas, the kitchen will make them for you during brunch even if they're not on the menu.

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

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

    If you're at Cantina Marina, look from the top deck to see if we are partying out on 'Thunder Struck' - the Beekeeper Group boat.
