The Grand Marlin of Panama City Beach
Nice spot for dinner first night in town. Very windy evening so we enjoyed the waterfront view.
Enjoyed the ahi poke and fried lobster fingers along with salad, fish tacos, baked chicken and ribeye. Professional, courteous service.
I have dined here 12+ times in the last year, this was my first experience where I waited a very very long time for the food and my Mahi Mahi was very dry. The waiter was terrific, but had to keep apologizing for the slowness
We love Grand Marlin. Our server, Steven, was very attentive and courteous. The food was fantastic. Love the ambiance.
My husband and I came for dinner on our last night at the beach. Love that I can make a reservation here, but wasn’t able to get a booth by the water this time (I’ll try again). The restaurant was lively and the service was friendly and knowledgeable. We started with oysters Monterrey and they were delicious - so excited to have baked oysters here after we learned that our favorite PCB restaurant for oysters no longer serves them. The Greek salad was delicious and the grouper piccata was wonderful as always! On this trip, we definitely saved the best for last!
Special touch with the “Happy Birthday” menus. Food was awesome as usual.
The only thing was it was freezing in there and was the other 3 times we were there through our winter visit. Had to wesr our jackets through our meal each time. They should really adjust thst for their patrons.
Service was absolutely excellent. All food is made and served fresh. It is the best restaurant in Panama City Beach, Fl. Ate here on 2 occasions and it was superb both times.
Food was excellent and our server was friendly, helpful and efficient
The Grand Marlin in Panama City Beach is one of the best restaurants on the Gulf Coast
my experience was fantastic. everyone in the party had an excellent experience with the food and service.
Food was great and so was Tyler our server. Highly recommend the Grand Marlin and Tyler!
Fabulous food & service! Great ambiance! The service was great! Going back soon!
The food was fantastic! Try the Grouper Picatta from the entree section, it was out of this world! Staff was very accommodating as well.
Wonderful meal! Service was outstanding! Our server gave great recommendations and my husband and I loved both meals - Grouper Picatta and Scottish Salmon - our daughter age 8 tried them both as well and kept asking for more bites! Wonderful find in Panama City Beach!
Food was very good. Service was horrific
Waited for over an hour for our food.
Excellent food, great service, prompt seating for 6 at our reservation time even though the restaurant was full. High noise due to number of diners.
Our most favorite place to eat and enjoy the bay and beautiful sunsets in Panama City Beach!!
This is the best restaurant in the area!! Nice happy hour at the BAR ONLY. but you can also order from the main menu and eat in bar area either upstairs or downstairs. Grouper piccata, steak and wedge and crab cakes are wonderful. Sunday brunch is very good. Crab cakes Benedict & prime rib! Brunch mimosas and Bloody Mary’s.
Service was great, food was alright but not anything to brag about. Considering we were recommended to come here over Capt Anderson’s it was slightly disappointing.
Awesome food and service
We go to Grand Marlin every trip to PCB. It is our favorite and this time was no different. Or fave is the oysters Rockefeller and you can never go wrong with the fresh local fish. Prepared perfectly. My husband got the ribeye this time and it was also cooked to perfection. Plenty of flavor and very tender. We always have to share bites. Check out the jalapeño martini. Love this place.
The good was excellent our servers was extremely attentive and made our dinner very special.
We love The Grand Marlin! Our boys always ask to go back! Get the grouper picatta! You won’t be disappointed!
We went there for my daughter’s birthday while on spring break.
We had Sunday brunch on the second floor, the view is great, the service was excellent, the food was outstanding. Looking forward to our next visit.
The Sunday brunch is sooooo good. After several visits, every item on the menu is a winner. The ever changing water views and delicious food make for a great start to any Sunday. We’ve also always experienced attentive service by the staff. And the steel drums are a perfect accompaniment to the ambiance. The Grand Marlin is truly a grand restaurant!
Aaron Bishop is a great server!
Very good food and ambiance. View of the bay was perfect from upstairs. Bring a jacket in the Spring. Very chilly.
Great place to eat best in Panama City Beach. Great food and drinks
The menus wishing us happy anniversary was a special treat.
We will DEFINITELY be back
I love this place. We are at Panama City Beach only once a year and this is our special place to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. The food is great as is the service. A table by the window is a special treat.
We are never disappointed with the food or service at The Grand Marlin. This is our go-to restaurant for special occasions or for an occasional date night.
We celebrated our Anniversary and they made us feel special. We had our names on our menus and a complimentary dessert that said “Happy Anniversary!”
We live close by and enjoy eating at Grand Marlin often. It’s also a place we can take guests and be assured of a good experience.
Could have used more lighting. Otherwise,we will be back
Lobster was disappointing. I ordered a burger to replace it and server didn’t even question why or offer to exchange it. Another guest also ordered lobster and was disappointed as was the guest who ordered the rib-eye. They did not order another meal. Desserts were excellent.
I ordered the hand cut ribeye which was not done to order, tough and very fatty. Definitely not worth 32.00 ! I would not recommend this cut of meat.
I want to make this perfectly clear, this is the first time out of many that I was disappointed.
Great happy hour prices for drinks and their daily specials are very well priced as well. Drink specials only available at the bar. If you are in the dining room, you have to go to the bar to get the happy hour drinks. No biggie! Food was great! Had the filet mignon and crab cake for $19.00. Big portion and very tasty. Steak cooked perfectly. Sat in a table facing the inlet so very nice. Tyler our server was very attentive and prompt. Will definitely go back!
Make a reservation as it is very busy when it opens at 5pm.
This is one of our favorite dining places. We've had brunch on Sunday here and loved the different menu options they offer for brunch. We also ate here for Thanksgiving and had a traditional turkey and stuffing meal with large portions and was the most moist turkey I've ever eaten. Last week, we had the lemon Parmesan pasta and grouper piccata. Fabulous food and had enough for lunch the next day! It was a busy Monday night with their 1/2 price oyster special. We made reservations online for 7:15 and were seated right away but looked like the wait was 30 minutes or less if you didn't have a reservation. The only complaint (which I hate to classify as a complaint) was that it was a little noisy with a full house. It won't stop us from going again, but was a little hard to hear the conversation at your table - we were near a group celebrating a birthday who were having a great time!
