The Grand Marlin of Pensacola Beach
Food and service was awesome. Sarah was the bartender an she was awesome an even rememberd what i had last time. The lobster appetizer. It was delicious.
The filet mignon was perhaps the best we have ever had anywhere!
Great food and great service. We really enjoyed our anniversary dinner!
Visit # 6. Food remains good, nice grouper well prepped this time and a ribeye. Somewhat skinny but done correctly, good flavor. Server was in overdrive, might want to bring a net to catch this guy.
Excellent brunch! Good was fantastic and service superb!
It’s always really good. But it is SO LOUD. And I had an unusually large amount of okra in my gumbo, which I didn’t really appreciate. But overall very good.
Love this place for Sunday brunch. I especially like sitting outside on the deck. There is a nice breeze.
So the food was really good .. the service lacked .. we were often without silverware and the wine service was just kind of funny... didn’t show the bottle .... opened and poured without a tasting ... and grabbed the glasses by the Bowl and served them to us ... i call that molesting the glass.. the lighting was too bright ... and not sure why the TVs were on .... so eat outside... take care of your own wine and keep your silverware... but seriously the food was good
Exceeded all expectation. Outstanding dining experience all around.
Saw listing on open table “best senic view” and view was great. But food was fantastic and service impeccable. We are couple of foodies and were Wowed by lobster app. Chefs special scallops were incredible as were oysters beinville.
Jake was great server and did outstanding job with timing our experience.
Will certainly be back many times.
My husband and I went there for our 18th wedding anniversary and the atmosphere, food and service was excellent. Will definitely return and highly recommend to friends and family.
One of the best restaurants in Pensacola! Ambiance is great also.
Beautiful restaurant with excellent food and service. I had grouper and my husband had snapper. Both were very fresh, having been caught that day. Holly, our waiter was efficient and personable. It was a great experience. We will return when we go back to Pensacola Beach.
Wonderful and courteous service by Liz highlighted a delicious meal and lemon curd/blueberry pound cake that was to die for.
One of the best meals I’ve had, maybe ever!! Sheer perfection!
Sitting outside is not the same great experience. Request inside seating.
Another great meal, service and experience at Grand Marlin
The view (if you can get the waterfront seats) is the main reason I keep coming back. The food is good. The service is generally good. Only negative point is that sometimes the noise level is too much for those of us who enjoys peace and quiet on the waterfront!
Beautiful way to celebrate a friends 91 st birthday. Zero wait, wonderful server( Alex ) perfect seating. Menu was divine and everything tasted as it should. Truly made my friend feel special. Alex knew details about the occasion and was spot on! One of the most pleasant servers I have ever encountered. Restaurant was clean , not too loud, kept kids away from adult partie :)
Very very pleased
We were seated within one minute of our reservation time. It was busy and hectic at first but the waitress was attentive and the food was outstanding.
The view was great.
The bar was energetic
Never had better oysters
Worth the drive.
Our waiter was the best. The food was simply fantastic,filling, and served in the correct chain of servings. I can't say more other than we will go more often.
The Grand Marlin is by far our favorite restaurant in Pensacola. We come every month for business and eat here without fail. Their salads are fresh and creative and their entrees delicious. This time we had the steak wedge salad and crab cakes. Then we came back on saturday nite and had the seasonal watermelon salad and the scallops along with their signature praline basket dessert. We’ll see you next month!
Wait staff very attentive! Wine day Wednesday, you can’t go wrong...bottle wines half off😊! Love the Grouper Piccata and save room for the Key Lime pie...wonderful!!!
To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to thank the Grand Marlin for making my wife and I's 25th wedding anniversary so special last night. We had a wonderful evening and it was all made possible by our server Scott. He was tremendous last night and he made the night super special. He recommended appetizers and food selections for us that turned out to be spectacular. By the way, kudos to the chef last night because that pork shank was killer ridiculously good! Also, Scott was very attentive and his attention to detail in taking care of us last night was exemplary. It had been a while since we ate at the Grand Marlin, but last night's food and service will definitely cause us to come back a lot more. We live in Pensacola, but we will make the trip as long as the service and the food are at the level that they are! Again, we can't thank you all enough for making our special night that much more meaningful. I would like to say one more thing, I think Scott needs a raise and some type of recognition for the outstanding service that he provided last night. Also, thank you for the Happy Anniversary dessert. That was an epic topping to a spectacular evening. Look forward to dining there again soon! You all are top notch!!!
nice evening, food and service very good, great place to go for a 'dress up' evening in a very casual area
Enjoyed the food and atmosphere of the restaurant!
I love this place. I eat there every time I can. I got the scallops and they were fantastic. My wife got the choppino and loved it as well. My favorite is still the BBQ shrimp appetizer.
Asked for the check & it took 20 minutes . Finally got it & out my CC in the binder. Server took another 15 minutes to run my CC.
Ridiculous. The experience was fine up until then.
As long as I have lived in Pensacola, this was my first meal here. It was our Anniversary, I said that in the reservation and upon arrival. We were seated with a water view but a high noise area. Her tuna was over cooked, my prime rib was good but my request for no potatoes was ignored by the plater. The asparagus could have been gig points they were so tough. So bottom line, not recognizing the Anniversary was disappointing and the meal fell way below the same experiences at the fish house, and the Oyster Bar.
We went with some very special friends. We have eaten here in the past and its been good. But, this evening was spectacular! The eating over looking the Inter-coastal was perfect. But, the dinner was one of the best meals I can remember having in any restaurant for many years! A wonderful evening!
Always excellent. Love to be outside, usually with good entertainment. Crispy Lobster fingers are an excellent appetizer. Fresh cobia, lobster tail were both outstanding. Service was top notch.
Loved everything about the Grand Marlin! From beginning to end, it exceeded our expectations. Our server was wonderful. He gave great recommendations, always checked in on us, and was very personable. The food was delicious. And the bay view from our table was the icing on the cake. We will definitely return and have no hesitation recommending the Grand Marlin to all our friends.
Wonderfully fresh fish with excellent seasoning. The food, view and service was exceptional.
The Grand Marlin is one of our favorite places to dine, relax, and enjoy great food and fellowship with family and friends! We are so fortunate to have The Grand Marlin and so many wonderful choices of restaurants here in the panhandle.
Main entrees were fantastic! Disappointed in the side dishes. Boring and bland.
We had the house Chardonnay an lobster fingers appetizer an the blue Angel chips. It was all so delicious. Our bartender was awesome too.
I had the fried shrimp with fries and coleslaw. The shrimp and the coleslaw were excellent -- loved the cilantro in the coleslaw (at least it tasted like cilantro). The fries were a little rubbery and cold. I also had Moscato but found it to be a bit stale. My husband had a seafood medley with angel hair. He said it was good but not the best he ever had. Our calamari we had for an appetizer was excellent -- I loved the combination of pickles, peppers and squid. This dinner was our wedding anniversary and they surprised us with desert -- vanilla ice cream, pecans, and fresh berries in an edible cup. The desert was excellent. They even wrote "Happy anniversary" in chocolate on the plate -- nice touch. Our waitress was excellent -- she came around just enough times as not to be a nuisance, but very helpful and kind -- she had a great smile and was extremely pleasant. We live in Pennsylvania, but when we come to Pensacola, we come here to eat.
The food was wonderful, the view beautiful! Definitely one of my favorite restaurants!
The food was excellent! Good martini, the seafood was great, the service was also very good. The view was spectacular from the outdoor seating. I will return every time in the area.
Awesome as always, our server was Liz and she did a great job!
Excellent as always. Daniel is an excellent server. Highly recommended? We love to take out of town guest there.
