Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated yet another special occasion a Marker 32. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we had not even received our first round of drinks at 8pm. It was fully packed but I do feel they need additional wait staff for these busy nights. The slowness is the only complaint I ever have about Marker 32 b/c it has hands down the best food in Jacksonville. I will say they would have sold a lot more from the bar if they had come and checked our drinks often and that's my BIGGEST AGGRAVATION. This kind of service definitely takes away from the experience. The food, as always was phenomenal."

  • "Our first visit to Marker 32 was a very good one. We started our meals with a unique but also very tasty peach Gazpacho and order of fried Oysters with deviled eggs. The Spinach Salad is very good. I had the wood grilled Pompano which was excellent in addition to being a large portion. My wife had the crab cakes which were also very good. Our waitress Lacy was very helpful in her accurate descriptions of the many menu choices. The strawberry Neopolitan for desert was tasty. Anyone looking for great food and attentive service should give this place a try, I am sure you will enjoy both food and very attentive service."

  • "Upon arriving we were greeted kindly by the hostess who went out of her way to find us the perfect seat despite having been booked with reservations. The service, atmosphere, and food were all very good, but nothing stood out as outstanding. My steak was prepared very well and my girlfriends tuna was described as good. We ordered the marker 32 broiled oyster appetizer which was good, but the oyster was completely over powered by the toppings. Though, admittedly the description was accurate. The wine was delightful. Overall we shared a very nice dinner and enjoyed our evening. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends looking for a new place, but it does not stand out far above the others in its class."

  • "My husband and I had a fantastic experience at Marker 32. I requested a table next to the window so we can have a nice view and we were seated as requested. The drink menu had many options along with the regular dinner menu. From the mussels to the King crab legs and scallops entree for dinner, we enjoyed EVERY bite. The desserts were fresh and delicious too."

  • "In Jacksonville, with so notably few restaurants that stand out, marker 32 is a true gem. View is pretty, service is speedy, and the food is consistently delicious!"

  • "The good: food was very tasty, both appetizers and mains. The window table we requested was available. The bad: The noise level was horrendous. There was a crowd at the large bar, and it was so loud I could barely hear my wife. The service was not really attentive, as our server seemed overburdened. Unlike other restaurants we have been to on our Anniversary, Marker 32 did nothing in the way of a complimentary drink or appetizer or anything. The patrons were mostly dressed extremely casual (i.e. shorts & flip flops), so it felt more like a glorified bar scene than an upscale restaurant."

  • "Very consistent with service and quality of food. Always changing and delicious unique menu. The steak/beef/lamb dishes are as vibrant and amazing as the seafood selections. Everything is super fresh."

  • "What more can be said about this Jacksonville gem? Everything was perfect from the minute we were greeted by staff. Wait staff was very attentive, informative and non-hovering. Food was well beyond our expectations. The entire experience was one well worth repeating for those special occasions when ordinary just won't do."

  • "Had dinner Friday evening at Marker 32. Food was excellent No doubt about that. Service was abysmal. Waiter was overbearing, entrees took forever to appear, wrong wine was served. Restaurant is noisy and lacks any atmosphere at all. It gives the impression of having a very strong executive chef and a failing front end manager. It is rare that one can have a dinner that good and leave thinking about the terrible service rather than the great food. I would hesitate to send a friend."

  • "Wonderful Restaurant--- Great food and beautiful location.... The manager was very warm and kind in helping my husband & I celebrate our 15th year anniversary. The only problem was I made reservations and we were not given a table with a view. Everything else was fantastic! I would definitely go to this restaurant again. Cheers!"

  • "There are a lot of seafood restaurants in jacksonville. I've tried several in the Atlantic beach area, and this is by far my favorite. The wam spinach salad and the creme brûlée were outstanding. I had the daily special of triggerfish, and it was excellent. Our server was very knowledgable about the food and the wine list - which was great. Definitely worth paying a little more for great seafood "

  • "If you are looking for a special dining experience, with great food, a wonderful view in a moderately quiet setting, with very attentive wait staff and management at a reasonable price, Marker 32 is the place for you! The food was great and plenty of it! The wait staff was very attentive to all our needs. The restaurant was beautifully decorated, and the window view over the marina was nice! My wife of 25 years and I made an unforgettable memory when we recently dined here, and I'm sure it will be an annual stop for us when we are back in the Ponte Vedra area! "

  • "The food is consistently well prepared. Service is also very good. Scenic view of the marina adds charm. You won't feel rushed even on busy nights. "

  • "Our server and the service was very good. Reservation was honored and we were seated right on time. Extremely noisy, had a hard time conversing with our table. Food. Very disappointing. Maybe we just didn't order well. Will be a long time before we try again as there are too many consistently good restaurants in the area. To be fair I have to say that all staff were professional, knowledgeable and courteous. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Marker 32 is one of our favorite restaurants in the the Jax area. During our recent visit, we enjoyed the tuna poke, outstanding sauteed oysters, and a mahi-mahi special that featured a delicious base of grits (not an oxymoron in this case). Highly recommended."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "The restaurant is noisy, so it's not the place for quiet, candlelight romance, BUT, the food...I have NEVER had food so delicious. I ate here while visiting from out of town and would drive to Jacksonville again for the express purpose if eating here. The wait staff knew the menu, knew the food and was perfectly attentive. The view of the river was nice as well. "

  • "Celebrated my birthday at Marker 32. When the waiter found out, the house sent two glasses of sparkling wine and later a shrimp appetizer that was fantastic. The experience made my day, extra special. The main course was done perfectly. My date has a problem with garlic so her dish was prepared accordingly. Overall a great dining experience and yes have been recommending to all my friends."

  • "The wife and I come to the area 5-6 times per year and ALWAYS make reservations at Marker 32. It is consistently excellent!!! Wine list is deep, food is of the highest quality and the view of the marina is lovely. Ask for Doug...he is an excellent server and really knows his wine and food, makes for a particularly pleasant experience."

  • "Be sure to request a table by the windows (that overlook a marina and salt marsh) which we failed to do, so I had to rate Ambience as only Good). The "Fresh Catch" (that night it was triggerfish which I had never eaten before) was superb."

  • "A friend who lives in the area said this was a spot we shouldn't miss. They were so right. While visiting the Mayo Clinic an evening away couldn't have been spent at a better restaurant. Our waiter was outstanding as well as the food. Very attentive, kind and helpful staff. We'll definitely be back again and have passed the word along to our sons who are with SeaHawk paints and sell to the boat yard next door. Thanks for a great meal and wonderful view."

  • "The food was delicious, fantastic, would go back again! Just the next time I would hope to not have the same waiter. He was friendly and knowledgable at the beginning but then it seemed he had more important things to take care of. We didn't see our waiter since the time he took our order to when my wife was finished with her food and I was over 3/4ths the way done, probably somewhere around 30-40 minutes. When he stopped by, no questions about how the food is, only if I wanted another beer to go along with my dinner (Yep, I had been without a drink for some time)(Yep, he did ask me if I wanted it WITH my dinner). Needless to say the beer came after I was finished with my dish. So, great food...just want a different waiter."

  • "Decided to go with several appetizers. Had the Caesar salad, the shrimp with grit cake, fried oyster w/grits and remoulade, the tuna poke and possibly the best bread pudding I've ever had. Everything was absolutely delicious. Even the bread basket (which was served in perfect portion to enjoy but.not fill you up) was amazing. One of the best restaurants I've been to In the area. Add to this the beautiful view and you have am awesome (but not stuffy) dining experience"
