Just a great place to gather and enjoy great food and service!
Wonderful experience from start to finish. The food was delicious with good portion size. Service was quick and personable!
Everything was Excellent!.......
Ashley was our server, and she was excellent! Grouper Picard was superb, grilled shrimp was excellent, lobster fingers were a delicious appetizer, as was my wedge salad. Ashley guided our tastes through the wine list, and we were very happy with our selection. Can’t wait to return.
Wonderful food, great service, and incredible views. Best restaurant in Pensacola!
Oysters and tuna poke were great
Always a great meal!
Higher expectations, lower delivery than I had hoped for. On business travel so just me, and had made a reservation for 6pm. Got there and the only seating was the same as two parties that just walked in, so don't know what good a reservation was. Had asked for a small table, and was seated by hostess at a table for 5 in the "outside" area (which is heated and really kind of inside). Had expected a fine dining experience; instead got a loud, busy, almost cafeteria like one. Jazmin my server was good and personable, but the hostess seemed to have cared less when I asked if having a reservation couldn't allow me to have a nicer location and quieter table. She could have cared less. Food (tuna) was ok, but not a lot of flavor other than the sauces. Green beans and mashed potatoes good. OK experience overall but won't bother coming back
Service and food was great. It is fourth year we celebrated our anniversary at Grand Marlin. Unfortunately I did not look at check carefully enough until I got home. We had a $50 gift certificate and a $10 bonus certificate. The latter was NOT taken off our check
the food was awesome, the ambience was excellent. However the service was slow to respond to our normal requests; refills, checking on us, bringing the check etc. Our server was very nice when he was with us.
My boyfriend and I had a great dinner at The Grand Marlin of Pensacola Beach. It was also our first time dining here so it was all worth it. The food was great. We weren't really a fan of seafood but this one we were able to finish everything. Thank you for the birthday cake as well for my boyfriend. He surely loved it hehe. Will definitely come back here again soon! 🤩😊
Awesome experience! I highly recommend to everyone!
Every time we dine here it’s an amazing meal with fantastic service. We love that it’s a simple but delicious menu and our server always makes a recommendation.
Impressed with social distancing of tables and concern of walk paths in dining room.
All things very good!
Birthday remembered. Thanks!
Shared with friends who are fearful of dining out.
Skip the brunch menu items. The potatoes were cooked yesterday, fried today, and sat under a heat lamp. Skip the crab benedict. The crab cake was mostly filling and not worthy of being served at this nice restaurant. Everything else we enjoyed.
It wasn’t terrible; it just wasn’t anything special. The only remarkable event of the evening was at the end of the meal when I asked for Nocello with my coffee... the waiter actually came back to the table and claimed no one had, “ever heard of it”?!? Seriously? Regardless of whether of not that is actually true (which I highly doubt) , why would a server even say that to a customer? Very unprofessional.
The food and service at the Grand Marlin on Pensacola Beach was impeccable. The seafood was clearly fresh and it was exceptionally prepared. It was a bit pricey but for a special occasion, it's simply wonderful.
The bar area was extremely noisy and it was raining and the floors had puddles of water on them. Otherwise the food was excellent. The BEST wedge salad I have had. Excellent gumbo.
We had dinner at The Grand Marlin on New Years Eve. They followed the important protocols related to COVID-19 which gave us comfort as we dined. We did have to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, but we did go during an extremely busy time. It was definitely worth the wait, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. Everyone was delighted and happy to have this as our last meal of 2020.
Fantastic food and service as always.
The GM is always excellent!
Must go to restaurant on the water. Fresh seafood that melts in your mouth!
We had an early reservation ( 4:30) and were seated in a small area located in the inside dining room-very quiet. Ramon was our very good waiter. Food selections were outstanding as normal. Overall, another excellent meal at the Marlin. We miss the Tuesday "Surf and Turf" Special!
The usual stellar experience at the GM
We had a wonderful experience. Food and service was great!
The food and drinks were great as always, the only issue we experienced this time was the appetizers came out at different times. First, 1 salad then about 6 minutes later my lobster fingers and about 5 minutes later the 3 shrimp cocktails - which normally are the first to make it to our table? Everyone and every place always has an off night! All in all we had a great time and the Grand Marlin will be our go-to place for special occasions!
The food was great. We were seated in the outdoor space though it was technically enclosed because of cold weather. Unfortunately, the acoustics were such that the noise level was loud, making conversation difficult. Overall, we had a nice time, even with the noise. Our server, Philip was attentive and helpful.
We enjoy brunch at the Marlin and decided to have Christmas Eve dinner there. The food was good and service was good. One of our favorite restaurants.
Outstanding in every respect.
Great experience. Lobster fingers are fantastic!
Excellent service and food as always! View is fantastic.
Was somewhat disappointed with overall experience. The ambience was minimal. I brought out of town guests here for the total package due to celebrating many big life achievements. The price for dishes was certainly not worth it. My son had the red snapper, and he was extremely pleased with it. I will not return until life does not revolve around COVID.
Wonderful meal, as always. We celebrate many special occasions here. It never disappoints. Jennifer was a wonderful server, too.
Wonderful! Randall was a great server! He made it special!
Great service. Amazing food
