It was OK. Food was good but not $$$ good. Don't think I'll go back at those prices.
Great night celebrating 10 years. Thank you Grand Marlin for always coming through and making life events special. We enjoy every visit.
Delicious food. Great service. Food was a little slow coming out.
Great food- Grouper Piccata dish was very nice.
Can't rave enough about the Praline Basket dessert!
Our waitress was wonderful - very professional and friendly.
Atmosphere in the main dining area was 5 stars.
Great everything! Best food, service, etc. in Pensacola!
The food was amazing and so was our server! Will definitely go back!
So glad we decided to drive from Navarre Beach to dine here. We made a reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival. They did seat us outside but the breeze and fans made it nice so we could enjoy the views. Our waiter, Ryan was so kind and helpful. My daughter loves lobster and said it was delicious. I highly recommend the redfish and get the chocolate sundae for dessert.
Excellent service and outstanding food
Excellent food. Good service except the waiter who acknowledged it was my birthday did not offer a complimentary dessert. We didn't realize until we left. Also, we were seated by the kitchen and we had a reservation so I felt like we should have precedence over a walk in. This is our special place to go for our birthdays and anniversary so was a little disappointed with the seating and dessert issue.
We had a lovely time, once we were reseated to the main dining area, which had been our hope when making our reservations two weeks in advance. We always enjoy everything about this place! The banquet room is ok for large groups, but not very festive for a small group when a very large group is seated to dine. We appreciated being moved out of that room and into the main dining room.
We had a variety of entrees, all were excellent. The fried shrimp might seem generic, but these were as good as I have ever had. Our kids had fish dishes with no left-overs. Our 13 year-old granddaughter discovered Pesto and was delighted. Great desserts..... we were celebrating 2 birthdays. Overall, we reinforced why this is our go-to place for special events. We are locals.
The food was incredible!!! FRESH!!!! We were seated by the railing (Anniversary) ---BEAUTIFUL scenery!!!!! Love this place!!!!
Excellent food and service as always
Outstanding as always.
Ambiance was spectacular! Dessert was awesome! The steak was not the best, I should have gotten seafood instead. Wine list is excellent.
Usually great service, and new menu item Hong Kong halibut was delicious!!
We have been regulars for the past 5 years and never had a bad experience. It may have just been a one time off night but we will be giving Grand Marlin a break for now. Disappointed in service.
The lobster appetizer was delicious. My wife had Chicken Milanese and Panzanella which was also delicious. I had chef special grilled Wahoo with grilled asparagus and yellow rice. The grilled asparagus and yellow rice were great however the Wahoo was very dry (overcooked). That is why I gave you a four star rating.
All in all a very excellent lunch . Summer salad was perfect and so was the shrimp poor boy was perfectly cooked , gsmbino bread crispy and wonderful
Great as always! Never a disappointment!
Always a must when in the area, food and service are always top notch! You won’t be disappointed!
Went for our 3 year anniversary and it did not disappoint. Daniel was a great waiter and gave us the best experience. We will be back next year ☺️
Enjoyed our meal at Grand Marlin. Food was very good! Wait time was long. Very Busy!
Great experience! Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious. I had the veggie plate and for dessert the mixed berries & pralines without ice cream. It was so delicious! The server was very helpful when I was ordering, because I don't eat meat or dairy. The veggie plate is not on the menu, but it needs to be because it was AMAZING. I highly recommend it.
Everything was perfect!
Absolutely amazing is an understatement. We started with salt and pepper calamari which was incredibly tender and had so much flavor. My husband had Hong Kong halibut, I had key lime lobster tails both were undeniably the best seafood dishes we have ever had. We NEVER get desserts at restaurants however as good as this food was we had to get the full experience. We got the pineapple butter cake and that was fantastic, warm, sweet and buttery. Overall I wish we had one where I'm from but it is an experience I will not soon, or ever, forget. Do yourself a favor, go here, eat, get the full experience. Plan to spend a bit of money but just know it's worth every penny. We had outside dining and it was a storm front moving through. It could not have been more perfect.
The food was wonderful and served by a great waiter who was helpful because of his knowledge of the menu. We were seated promptly and had a great view of Pensacola Bay. We have eaten at The Grand Marlin several times. It is always a fine dining experience.
Great views and great seafood. Be sure to finish off dinner with their Key Lime Pie.
Great birthday dinner
Exceptional dining experience, great change of pace from your typical tourist trap locations
Beautiful late afternoon outdoor view and dining. 44th wedding anniversary started with the Seafood Bloody Mary-top shelf including Maine lobster tail, Gulf shrimp, candied bacon, Tito’s vodka and more. Cup of seafood gumbo and kale Caesar salad for appetizers. Grouper for me, red snapper for the bride. Complimentary dessert. Madison our server was on her game and treated us like royalty.
It was great quiet for conversations and the chef special was delightful had great time server was the best
Wonderful experience all across the board. Food was fantastic.
The service and food was outstanding. The Grand Marlin is one of our all-time favorites. It never disappoints.
We have visited the Grand Marlin every time we have visited or traveled through Pensacola. I made reservations for 8:15. After traveling 9 hours to get there we arrived to be seated at an outside table where it was hot and noisy. Our waiter was excellent but the ambiance was hot. If I knew I had to sit outside I wouldn't of gone. When making a reservation you should of have a choice. We will not be going back unless it is off season.
Our server Ryan did an outstanding job. He went the extra mile to ensure that we enjoyed our meal.
Celebrated my dad 78 Birthday, had a wonder dinner food was excellent as usual. our server Elisabeth was wonderful and attentive.
My wife and I go here for our birthdays and anniversary. We moved here from Chicago four years ago and The Grand Marlin is our favorite restaurant. The food is always great and our server Ramon was fantastic.
As usual food was great. Table location was great. Meet my expectations
