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.

Father’s Day

The food was outstanding and our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and made great suggestions. The swordfish was amazing, so was the ribeye. We also had the oysters Rockefeller and it was great. Only negative we have to say is that it took a while for us to receive our food. Other than that it was a very pleasant experience.

This restaurant usually is consistently good at service and food quality but maybe it was just an off night. Service was slow and our waitress was working more tables than she could manage. Our wine didn’t arrive until several minutes after our meal. We plan on going back to give it another shot because of our previous experiences.

Enjoyed our family night out. Food was great quality, wonderful atmosphere - we sat outside looking over water while enjoying live music. Extensive cocktail and wine list. The kids loved the red velvet cake! I would recommend indoor dining for more romantic and quiet setting. Definitely a pricier option in Pensacola, but we were very pleased with our experience.

Service was great and entree’s were phenomenal but the blue angel chips were WAY too saucy. We couldn't eat 1/2 the plate it was just a puddle. Which is too bad because we were most looking forward to it because of a good review.... I’d never get it again and I love blue cheese. I wish the server had asked why we were done with it so soon.

Grand Marlin is the place to be for delicious food! Food is fresh. Views are great outside. Service is always fantastic at the Grand Marlin. The praline basket for dessert is a must! so good! Seafood, steaks, oysters, salads are all very good. Best place in my opinion for dining on Pensacola Beach.

Food and service are excellent. Acoustics make it difficult for conversation but manageable. Prices reasonable for the quality. It is my go-to best restaurant on Pensacola Beach!

My wife and I always enjoy going to the Grand Marlin. We have never been disappointed at the Grand. We had a West view so we enjoyed the Sunset with dolphins and the boat traffic. And of course the food was excellent like usual.

Two great dining experiences in a row during our stay at Pensacola Beach. Watermelon Miata salad was wonderful, Prime Rib was perfect w/horseradish sauce to compliment, Seafood Pasta was perfect and Atlantic Salmon was a perfect medium rare. Finished off with Praline Basket which was off the charts..
Will be back on our next trip to PCB

The shrimps and grits were delicious! We made a reservation a few days in advance which is advisable since they seemed very busy. We did not have to wait more than a few minutes. Service was great as well. We sat in the outdoor dining area which we requested and they had live music that was nice. It can be a little hot but they have fans to help some with that.

I've been to the Grand Marlin a few times for dinner but this time was very poor. We waited for 15-20 minutes for the server to come by and acknowledge our presence. When our food came it was cold. The steaks were not very good at all.. I understand that it was busy but I still feel it was overall terrible.

We were located next to the inside bar, which made the experience less than optimal. We come every year at this time, and typically sit in the outside area. Will know next year to request seating location.

Food this nite was just ok normally we have had much better. Salmon was under cooked and return and came back over salted all other dishes were good.
Waitress make amends and tried to get fixed but it was busy and we give up. Although waitress did adjust dinner bill which was unexpected.
