Description: 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.

Had a great dinner here with outstanding service. The snapper, tuna, and scallops were delicious. The service was also great. I would recommend getting reservations as this is a very busy place because the food is soo good

I took friends who were here for a wedding to Grand Marlin and it was wonderful as usual. My daughter and I eat there often when she visits from Nashville and we’ve never been disappointed. The service was excellent and the food hot, fresh and very tasty. I had shrimp and grits which was great. I also had shrimp cocktail as an appetizer. Others in my party had steaks and fried shrimp. One person had chicken piccata. Everyone loved their food. I will continue eating at Grand Marlin!
