Seafood
The Grand Marlin Restaurant features a main dining area with a shucked to order oyster bar, exterior North Drop Bar overlooking Grand Lagoon, and private meeting rooms. This Panama City Beach restaurant, with an air of island casualness, serves the highest-quality cuisine, including the freshest local seafood featured on menus designed and printed daily to take advantage of the local bounty. The atmosphere creates a fusion of the Caribbean and the Panama City Beach Area. Corporate Executive Chef Gregg McCarthy has a passion for great-tasting food and particularly loves working his culinary magic with fresh Gulf Coast seafood. Boaters and beach-goers feel comfortable in shorts and flip-flops at the oyster bar, in the dining room and at the North Drop Bar. The Grand Marlin has a space and atmosphere for all occasions and is looking forward to creating an authentic experience between time and tide.

    Food top notch delicious like always. Grouper piccata always delivers! Oyster Rockefeller app was only disappointment- oysters too big and covered with runny hollandaise sauce. But still everything else was wonderful!

    Have been here multiple times, and the food is consistently good. The service is attentive without being intrusive. Have not had anything we would not order again. Zach and Ainsley waited on us, and were both great. Front desk were welcoming and helpful, and we got seated quickly. Our other forays there were without reservations, which is OK if you (like us) are early eaters, but it fills up rapidly.

    Took my mom there for her birthday celebration and we sat by the window overlooking the water. Sipped on champagne and had the best dinner ever! She had the snapper and I had the steak. I highly recommend Grand Marlin to anyone looking for a great meal and nice environment. Our server was awesome and so attentive!

    The oysters were huge. The scallops, grouper piccata, and basil seafood pasta were all fantastic. The key lime pie and chocolate brownie sundae were a great way to end the night. We had live entertainment and sat where we could watch the boats come in.

    Excellent meal. The only downside is that it felt a little rushed.
