Seafood
The Grand Marlin Restaurant features a main dining area with a shucked to order oyster bar, exterior North Drop Bar overlooking the beautiful Santa Rosa Sound, and private meeting rooms. This Pensacola 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 Pensacola Bay Area. 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.

    Been to the Grand Marlin many times. Always a great experience. We had swordfish, fried shrimp amd oysters Rockefeller and it was all perfect. I've had the rib-eye steak there multiple times too and it's always been tender and cooked exactly how I order it. Very reasonable price for the service and atmosphere.

    We selected an early seating (5:15) because we had a toddler with us. Nathan, our server was excellent. Spot on with his recommendations and service! Food was excellent, best scallops I’ve had in a long, long time! Always a pleasure to bring our visiting guests there. Never disappoints.

    As always the Grand Marlin did not disappoint us. The server, Ashley was great! The food and drinks were so good. We went this time for the oysters, Bienville, and BBQ! And the Key Lime Pie is the best.

    Thomas was wonderful, but small screaming kids were seated next to us a put a little damper on our anniversary dinner. Food was great as always!
