It's an odd location, but that's the only thing not to rave about. Great atmosphere, excellent service and spectacular food. My favourite in the Jax area.

Marker 32 is always on our list when we visit Ponte Vedra every year. The food is always good and while we have some favorite we always order, there is usually something new to try. Beautiful views of the water. It is noisy, so if you have any issues with being able to hear ask for a table in the back or the separate room.

Meh, it was ok. The food was good, not great. I had made a reservation for dinner and noted that it was our anniversary and asked for a window table. When we arrived, the seated us by the door to the entrance and basically in the middle of the aisle, certainly not an ideal table for an anniversary and no where near a window. Our waitress was slow and it took forever for us to be waited on and then to get drinks. She was certainly preoccupied with another table or two that seemed to draw her attention more. The food was not bad, but it was just basic. WAY overpriced for the experience as a whole. I certainly knew the prices of the food, as I have eaten there before, but when you charge those prices, clients expect OUTSTANDING service and food, which we did not get. We will probably not go back.

Celebrating a birthday and a baptism and couldn't have picked a better place. The view - spectacular watching the boats coming into the marina. The service - stellar, very attentive with great recommendations. The food + the two specials, grilled and lightly blackened tile fish and the grilled ribeye with molasses and smoked bacon we're two of the best meals I have ever tasted. Will we come back? You bet we will! Well done!

Beautiful location for a date night with the wife. Very friendly and courteous staff. My Hoppin-john and fish dish was excellent. Tuna poke appetizer was outstanding. My wife's steak was a little over done but she accepted it and ate it. Drinks were well mixed. I will definitely return to this place.

Graduation and birthday celebrations were awesome. Steak was a little over cooked, but the manager had it sent back and he brought out a fresh one, plus he paid for our salads and appetizers!

Excellent food and service. Strongly recommend a reservation, as you could still have to wait. Best to specify a table with the Waterview.

Really an enjoyable dinner experience! Quality food, good value wine with good service. The menu is interesting and everything we had was well executed. The only reason I’m not giving Marker 32 five stars for food and ambiance are admittedly pretty marginal. As far as ambiance its just a shame that such a beautiful setting on the water doesnt offer any alfresco dining. Would be spectacular! As far as food, my entree was a standing special with hoppin john and dirty rice offered with fresh catch of the day. The seasoning was not optimal and although very good to eat, it lacked some seasoning that could have made it outstanding. My wife ordered the other special with a different fresh catch and THAT meal was a 5 star meal. Interesting and very delicious.

If you are planning to go, get earplugs.
This is one of the noisiest restaurants I have ever been to.
Prices are much higher than I expected as the food is good,
sometimes very good, but not exceptional.
Service was okay, but not attentive, for a Tuesday.
Overall, a disappointment. My daughter and I
will not go to Marker 32 again.

Food and service were great. The bartenders knew there business. The place is very noisy particularly the screaming kids who made it difficult to carry on a decent conversation. The lesson is to make late reservations, which unfortunately causes you to run the risk of certain BBQ selection to not be available.
