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.

    Ryan did an awesome job, he was a joy to talk to and was very knowledgeable about all the food and cocktails on the menu! The mahi mahi and snapper were delicious, and the cocktails were yummy! Whenever we visit Pensacola we always come the the Grand Marlin at least 2 times, if not more.

    Service was abysmal. Took about 15 minutes to get our drink orders, another 30 before they came, our food took almost 40 minutes after ordering. Second round of drinks took 15 minutes to tell me they were out. Food was good, but the server mislead us about substitutions/choices. May or may not go back. If we do, we will DEFINITELY request a different server.

    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.
