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.

Grand Marlin is unparalleled in terms of its sophisticated yet beachy ambiance. The food has always been great in the past and was tasty on this occasion however my wife and I both got some kind of GI bug....that I attribute to GM because we had not eaten together earlier in the day. Nevertheless I intend to return in the future.

The food and drinks were absolutely delicious! It is definitely worth driving to the beach and during warmer months the view is beautiful.
