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!

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!

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.
