Great seared tuna salad for lunch!

Had a delicious lunch here recently on a short trip to Tybee. The seared tuna salad was fresh and so good! The wait staff was very helpful and friendly despite the fact I was dining at an odd hour - around 4 pm. Also this place is right on the beach. Sit outside if the weather's good, relax... read more

A little disappointed. I was thinking that from the name and the info I had read that this was going to be a cool, hip, kitchy place. Rather mediocre. Service was sloooooow. Fried platter I ordered was just averge. The fried oysters were very strong flavored - not good. Overall it was just ok.

Located right off the beach, they are a perfect location for a quick lunch. Their prices are a little steep but the food is great. Fresh seafood and great cocktails. Try the grouper fingers, very tasty. We also has the kids burger, tuna salad, and friend shrimp. Everything was wonderful!

Marlin's was recommended to us by a local we met previously, and it wasn't crowded so we gave it a try. It was good but not outstanding. Typical beach food. The shrimp tacos were fine, but it's not a place I would crave if we come back to Tybee.

Great food and good service. right on the beach. I've heard this is the only one on the beach, the others are across the street. You can sit inside and still see the beach because they have huge windows.
