  • Our Favorite at the Beaches

    Dined on 11/6/2014
    As usual, Marker 32 did not disappoint. This is probably our favorite restaurant for fine dining at the beaches. On this occassion, there were three of us. I had the beef tenderloin which was delicious with the mushroom sauce and I subbed grits for mashed potatoes. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Mahi-Mahi special, and our nephew who we took there to celebrate his first Navy assignment in Key West and was visiting us before heading there absolutely devoured the shrimp and pasta dish on the menu. We also enjoyed two appetizers - the short ribs and bruschetta - as well as the soup special of the evening which was a sweet potato bisque. Service was very good, especially considering how busy the restaurant was this night.

    A small party of 4, we were seated immediately on a Saturday evening. We ordered appetizers which were very small proportions; however, the entree servings were generous and seasoned well. The atmosphere was nice and quiet but the seating was a little uncomfortable as they are simply straight back chairs with limited cushioning.

    Arrived for our 7:15 reservation on Halloween and was warming greeted. I have eaten at Marker 32 on several other occasions and have come to trust that tonight was going to be nothing less than fabulous. We were seated promptly and just moments later "Ben" introduced himself and began to attend to us. We ordered and shared a lobster appetizer followed by our shrimp and steak entrees. Each dish was perfectly prepared and tasted wonderfully. A cheese cake and bread putting dessert rounded out the ending. Readers if you haven't tried Marker 32 please give them a try. I think they will become one of your favorite restaurants also.

    Dined on 10/31/2014
    This fantastic restaurant is right on the intercostal waterway by the Marina in Jacksonville. We were seated, as requested, with a great scenic view of the water. The appetizers were great, fired oyster over deviled egg. Trust me, it was good. The seafood selections were off the hook good. The wait staff was the best and friendliest we have had this year. Can't wait to visit next year! Jacksonville is fortunate to have this one. One family mistakenly brought a young baby, and he did not want to be there, and the rest of the restaurant agreed. Parents, this is a fine dining place. If you go out for this gem, get a babysitter! ;)

    This was not our first visit and the things that bring us back over the years are still applicable. That would be the outstanding service, the ambiance and the wine selection. Though we did not have a water view we were seated in an area where we could enjoy having a conversation along with an excellent glass of wine before ordering and never feeling rushed. The complimentary champagne recognizing our special occasion was appreciated. It was an all around enjoyable dining experience. We will definitely return to Marker 32.

    Marker 32 is a must when in Jacksonville. Marker 32 was again a great dining experience. Our server, Jamie, did a fantastic job. She was attentive, personable, and informatve. The food was excellent. The daily fish specials . . . the grouper and mahi were very good and the tuna was outstanding. The warm spinach salad and the kale salad were also quite good and recommended. The fried green tomatoes were good but something in the batter must have changed since our last visit and they were not as good as we remembered. When in Jacksonville and you are looking for a great dining experience where you can enjoy great food, great drinks, and great conversation . . . stop at Marker 32 . . . reservations are recommended.

    Over the past 30 years, my wife and I have both traveled extensively across North America and quite a few international destinations. We've been to every type of restaurant imaginable. Marker 32, right here in Jacksonville on the Intracoastal, is one of the best restaurants we've ever experienced. Our meals, from the appetizer to the salad to the entrees and the wine selection, were outstanding. Tasty, fresh, engaging flavors and wonderful presentation had us raving, somewhat unexpectantly. And our server was very professional, yet relaxed with easy conversation. The restaurant exceeded our expectations. If you are considering Marker 32, just do it! You will be very pleased with the price/quality ratio. It's a must!

Service is very attentive and professional....the restaurant is located on the intercoastal waterway and provides an authentic "old Florida" atmosphere....

    We made an early reservation and were seated at a prime table with view of water/marina. Because we had loaded up on greens at lunch time, we went the "fried" route for dinner, something not usual for us. The calamari appetizer had an Asian flair and was delicious. We both ordered the combo fried shrimp and oysters for dinner and were pleased with the light breading/non-greasy preparation and loved the fennel fries. Marker 32 is one of the long-standing, dependable restaurants in the Intracoastal area. We have been going there for years and are never disappointed.

    All-in-all a nice experience. A little sad that that with reservations -- and it being our 41st anniversary -- we were seated away from the window view as far as one could get. The meals were quite good, we have had a tad bit bit better in the past here. The service was a little slower than usual, yet okay. Started with the calamari (good thing it wasn't squid...) as an appetiser; excellent. The caramelized scallops were to kill for! Finished sharing a speciality cheese cake. Again, excellent. If our experience tonight was the worst at Marker 32, it is altogether better than most. We just know it can be even better!!

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    My husband had eaten here in the past and had mixed reviews so we decided to give it another try. We ordered the soup of the day and the M32 Signature Bruschetta. The soup was potato and leek with rosemary. The rosemary was over powering which was disappointing but the bruschetta was fantastic. My husband got the special fish dish which was a Caribbean themed flair. It was very good. I ordered the local catch with Mahi and it was fantastic as well. I would suggest ordering anything with the hoppin john. The peas in that dish are perfectly cooked. We had the banana pudding cheesecake for dessert which is a bit weird but tasty (weird because of the consistency). Overall I would recommend this restaurant to others.

    From start to finish, our dining experience was fantastic! The food was memorable and delicious, and the service was spot on. From the classic Mohitos to the house-made bread to the calamari appetizer and the spinach salad -- everything was absolutely delicious! Our entrees - the fresh catch mahi mahi entrée prepared with hoppin' john, collards and pesto rice and the carmelized scallops served over grits with collards - were amazingly good! We finished the evening by sharing the bourbon bread pudding -- simply divine! This was our first time dining at Marker 32, but it definitely won't be our last! We will be back -- again and again!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    We have dined at Marker 32 many times and have always enjoy good food. The one reason we are hesitant to take guests is the noise level. It is more than "energetic", in my opinion. It is difficult to even talk across the table. As long as the conversation is to the person directly next to you, you can communicate without yelling, but you still have to talk in a louder than normal conversational tone. It is hard to enjoy an evening with friends and is frustrating.
