The Marigny Serves Up New Orleans Poolside

October 3, 2013 by Leanne King

Good food, good times and good people are what The Marigny (Mare-i-nee) are all about. Located just north of US 98 on East Hewett Rd, it's not far from the Choctawhatchee Bay in Santa Rosa Beach.

Being off the beaten path and having its own pool gives the cajun/creole gem the feel of a local hidden treasure.  As you walk in don't be thrown off by the white tablecloths because comfort and casual is the theme of The Marigny. A large, covered outdoor bar area is the spot for live music and features giant TVs perfect for football season. The pool is a unique hangout for those not so interested in the games. 


Chef Chris Mongogna Jr, formerly Executive Chef of Fire, is in his element as he prepares dishes he has known since his youth in New Orleans. Chris' dishes are made from scratch with love, pride and soul - that's how it's done in New Orleans and at the Marigny - meals intended for sharing with friends and family. 

Manager Jason Jaume, also of NOLA, brings his knowledge of the restaurant business to the table and seasons it with pure and simple fun. Jason will more than likely visit your table just to make sure you are happy and smiling. 

The Marigny is open seven days a week serving food from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The pool bar is open late or "until we kick you out" - as the website states. Small plates are served after 9 p.m.

The Marigny also offers take-out as well as deliveries and catering. The authentic menu features favorites like Poutine, Charbroiled Oysters, Boudin, Shrimp Remoulade, Crawfish Bread and so much more. Be sure to follow them of Facebook for daily specials.
