We went for my husband’s birthday. Since they have a prime rib special on Sundays, we were really looking forward to having that for dinner. We arrived at 7 and unfortunately they were already out of prime rib. Had we known that we would have gone to McGuire’s. Sorry...
Exceptional food! Best fish on the beach for lunch or dinner. Try the bananas foster. It’s the best dessert on the menu and it doesn’t hang around for very long, so try it before it’s gone.
Great food, great service, great experience! Highly recommended
My wife and I just celebrated our 40th anniversary at the Grand Marlin as we knew it would be a memorable occasion and feast—it truly was.
One of the best meals we have had in some time. We were on a weekend trip to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, and decided to try The Grand Marlin. Service and food (Shrimp and Grits, Cracklin' Pork Shank) were very good - For dessert we shared the TGM Signature Praline Basket complements of the restaurant. It was too good for words. This will absolutely be on the list for our next trip to Pensacola Beach.
I can always count on Grand Marlin! Its my go-to place on Pensacola Beach when I want to experience a restaurant that has good atmosphere, excellent food and great service.
We had the grouper and seafood Capillino which both were wonderful. Service was great.
We were in town to watch our daughter play lacrosse. We asked several people what would be the place to go to for a nice dinner. The responses were The Grand Marlin.
They were absolutely correct. The food and the service was wonderful. Please don't miss the opportunity to eat here.
Grouper picatta and lobster fingers are phenomenal. Highly recommend!
The presentation of the food was great, but the flavor just wasn’t there. The food was overall very bland and very expensive.
The food is always very good. I have never had a bad experience with the food and the Wait Staff are very accommodating but I was always under the impression that for a Special Occasion the praline dessert was complimentary. The waitress kept telling us to save room for dessert and "how much we were going to enjoy it". My husband and I normally don't eat dessert, but we thought that since it was a special occasion and it was free that we would indulge. We were really surprised later, when we looked at our receipt and found that we paid for the dessert. At any time did we request the dessert! It is a shame that they use these tricks to get you to have dessert and add to the cost of your meal!
Food was great, could have been warmer. Other than that. Great.
Great meal including mussels, oysters casino, lobster mac and cheese. We also had the grouper and crab cakes, all tasted great. went home with key lime pie and enjoyed it at home.
Incredible lobster bisque and local fresh catches (snapper and red fish). Best seafood I’ve had in quite some time!
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere , ate their twice while on vacation at Pensacola beach
The servers were excellent
They guided us to the best dishes.
I had the seafood special & it was excellent
My client had the blackened fish & it was very moist.
We will be back
Food was excellent and all our meals were a Hit with family
This is a great restaurant! Each time we've been it's fantastic. Salmon and crab cakes are delicious. View of the water is always Nice! Service has always been great.
We loved the food. We have been twice and it was outstanding both times
Because of our late arrival in Pensacola, it was dark outside when we were dining at this highly recommended restaurant. Food and service did not disappoint. It was rather noisy until a couple of large groups left. The view would've been incredible so we recommend this amazing place for lunch or a "before sunset" dinner.
Entree ( scallops) was ok. Ambiance was great.
Great restaurant. We have visited many times. This particular visit was unpleasantly noisy.
The Blue Angel chips are a must have. The service was excellent. The noise level was a little high in the indoor seating, but it did not impede conversing easily at our table. There are a lot of delicious seafood dishes and some options for the steak lovers on the menu.
Incredible location and food. A destination even for local seafood eaters
Its is always a pleasure to eat at the Grand Marlin. The staff is so accommodating and friendly.
The food, music and view are outstanding.
Reservation kicked us off to a great start and so did the timely waiter. Ambiance was nice and set the vibe. The only issue was after ordering the meal, it took almost an hour to get our food. Literally 53mins according to my watch but whose counting. Food came out and was devoured all within 10mins. We did not order a lot or a big/heavy meal for that matter. Little disappointed. Ive ordered more food at more busier places and received food quicker. Food was also comparable if not better than Grand Marlin.
Very very good. Excellent food and we had a excellent waitress
The waitress was very attentive, the food was phenomenal. I just wish there was a little more of it. I got the scallop special. It was $34 and delicious! However, I was still hungry by the end of it. My girlfriend got a seafood linguini and she loved it.
Food was the best on the island!
Great food and service. I would definitely be back to eat there.
Dinner was perfekt: as starter a salad and then grilled scalops with green beans and mashed potato, it was wonderfull!,
The atmosphere, service, and food were as outstanding as I remember. I come down quite frequently for business, but had not visited the restaurant in some time. I’ve never been even slightly disappointed in the service or quality of food. Great job!!
Always a great experience. Our server Thomas was the best - checked on us often and greeted
us with the specials etc. Great service and meal. Our favorite restaurant.
We eat often at Grand Marlin after Mass on Sundays. Always good food and waitstaff. Our server Alex was spot on with his service. And your oysters Rockefeller are the best!
The restaurant was crowded but the service was superb. The food was good, and the crowd did not cause a long wait for our food. In addition, they seated us right away even knowing we had made a mistake on the reservation. Over-all excellent place to dine in Pensacola
Everything was perfect! Food was outstanding & our server was wonderful! We will definitely be back!
The food and service were great. So was my wife's Old Fashioned. A very nice dinner with my wife and cousin and her husband.
Consistently incredible! Service was; as ALWAYS, top notch. I’m already planning my next GRAND MARLIN experience!
My favorite restaurant on Pensacola Beach. Wonderful food, service and beautiful views. Never a disappointment. Always bring out of town guests here.
This is our favorite restaurant on Pensacola Beach. Always delicious and service is wonderful.
