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!

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

The location is great, walk off the beach to a patio with an unobstructed view. Th waitress took great care of and knew our names by the second visit. This is not a fancy place but the food was good, service good and the location, fantastic.

The food was pretty good. The service was below standard. We did lunch here when there were about 2 other parties. We asked if we could sit outside. We were told yes. I had to go back in 10 minutes later asking about menus. We waited for everything. As I said, no complaints on the food. I had a burger... More

We went here 5yrs ago at our last Tybee vacation & we remember having much better food & service than this time around. Our server seemed aloof; the restaurant was "out of bacon" (& we were the first customers of the day!) but we weren't informed of this until the crab cake BLT (& other food) was delivered. No compensation... More
