needs more variety

A little on the high side price wise, but what youd expect from a place like this. The food was ok, they need more variety in the kids menu. A hotdog is all they have. Its swim up by the beachside colony condo pool. Nice atmosphere if the sun ever comes out in Tybee, but not their fault

We went for the Full Moon party and loved everything. Live music, on the beach, full moon, and lots of great drinks and food. Great, friendly service and nice owners. We loved the bread bowl and get it everytime!

We stumbled upon this beachview restaurant and were thrilled! We sat outside and watched the sunlight fade on the water- beautiful. There was a nice plexiglass surround to break the wide, which was good since it was a bit chilly that day. Fish sandwich - excellent and HUGE portion Key Lime pie, yummy Bourbon pecan pie - excellent, with an... More

We stayed at the Beachside Condos and this place is right on site, so we frequented it often. Loved having the bar right by the pool, on sunny, warm days it was hopping! Food is standard island fare, but good. The staff makes you feel like you live there and come every day. Gary, Charles, Lee, Ida and all the... More

Staying at Beachside colonies which advertised that there is a bar/restaurant on site Marlin Monroes. Not true in Jan/Feb. II understand maybe not being open all hours but how about weekend service? Very misleading by Beachside to include this as an amenity. Not during Jan/Feb.Very disappointed in this.

The bloody Mary was great. The beach front atmosphere was nice too. The food was all right. Nothing special, can't even remember what we had..

Great food - great service - and good entertainment if you catch a night with a live band. Love the bread baked in a flower pot - and my kids want the recipe for crab quesadillas!

This is our sixth year on Tybee for the winter. We usually go to Marlin Monroe's for an Oyster Roast. Last year my wife was having health problems and we did not go. This year we went and instead of all you can eat it was by the oyster or by the bucket. Anyway I ordered a bucket and the... More

We were taken here by friends who live on the island. I was looking forward to some good, fresh seafood. I ordered the Sesame Ahi Tuna, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. The tuna serving was tiny! The seasoning seemed to be an afterthought as it was just sprinkled with some dry seasonings. The mashed potatoes were instant! I couldn't believe it!... More

Good friend recommended Marlin's and one other...we made the right choice. Everything was perfect...the food, the drinks, and dining on the beach side patio...enough said. This was the first time in quite a while that my Wife and I had the opportunity to spend some time to ourselves. It was a special evening for us and our server Ida made... More
