Hi, we live in Pompano and have been coming to this location for years to enjoy breakfast on a sunny south Florida day in a beautiful location. Back in the day, though, the food here had flavor. Not sure what happened since the remodel, but one thing is obvious - the food seems like tasteless, prepackaged, frozen heat-ups and its quality in no way is reflected in the higher prices. If you want to charge more for your food, that's fine, but break down and hire a chef who can make the food taste like something. We have taken two out of town guests there recently and have been embarrassed at how disappointing the food has been. Just trying to be honest as I hate to see the place go down sheerly on lack of trying to improve the most basic need for a restaurant. Food with flavor. We hope someone affiliated will read this.The truth is the truth. Hire a chef, please... and stop filling the tables with less than mediocre fare. Thank you.

My husband repairs diesel engines on boats and mentioned that a new restaurant opened at one of the marinas he works out of. We gave it a try with an early dinner and were pleasantly surprised. For appetizers we had the beef vegetable soup and the black and blue oysters. Both were fantastic! I had the grouper for dinner and he had the Rack of lamb. We split a piece of nutty chocolate cheesecake and it was all very good! The table next to us had a small dog with them , I guess the restaurant is dog friendly which adds to its charm. We also loved that smoking isn't allowed on the restaurant property. Smokers have a designated smoking area which I think is very refreshing. It's not fast, bar food. We enjoyed it very much and will highly recommend trying it.

I'm a native Floridian, but I've recently moved to Phoenix. I came back to visit family, and my Grandma decided to take me to the Marina Cafe for lunch. I'm not much of a seafood person (I'm allergic to most shellfish, and I'm very very picky about fish) but they had plenty of options for me. I had a skirt steak wrap that was really tasty, although the pasta salad left something to be desired. On a whim I decided to get the Key Lime Cheesecake, since I cannot find good Keylime desserts out west. I have never been happier to get a dessert at a restaurant. It was very light and absolutely delicious. I was recommend it to ANYONE.

Went with two friends after finding this new place online. We were all thrilled at the wonderful location and character of the restaurant. The food was delicious and the service friendly. We couldn't have been happier with the overall experience and before we'd even left we were planning on a return visit and the people we could surprise by bring them to this hidden treasure.

The atmosphere is as great as the food. Boating there is easy and it is a very dog friendly restaurant

I stopped by the Nauti Dawg cafe, which sits at the entrance to the Lighthouse Point marina, on a Sunday morning for a quick breakfast. The place was slammed and a table would've been a twenty minute wait or more. I opted to get my food to go, and a very friendly woman offered me coffee while I waited. I spent ten minutes walking around the marina, sipping my coffee and looking at boats. I returned and received my food, which was excellent - a seafood eggs benedict, made using crab cakes, served with asparagus and toast. Best breakfast I've had in a while and the marina setting is very pleasant. I don't usually write reviews of places, but the fact that they were able to give me a good experience even with a full house is a rare thing, so I thought I should do the favor of writing a positive review.
