On the beach - beach view, beach drinks, beach food.

We got exactly what we expected from a walk-up from the beach. Friendly staff, OK food, lots of deep fried options, cold beer. Obviously a comfortable spot for locals and repeat visitors - all a good sign. Great place to hang out - and we really enjoyed the Bloody Mary Bar where you make your... read more

While under new management, it is doing great. The Sunday make your own Bloody Mary Bar is a big hit as well as the oyster roast(shuck it yourself) or fried oysters witha delicious mango salsa. Sitting on the outside deck on a sunny afternoon listening to the band with a cold Landshark is about as close to heaven as a... More

I don't often give a restaurant a 5 star review but this one deserves some attention. Went there on Sunday (3/29) for app's and Oyster Roast. They had a live band [playing that made it more enjoyable. You gotta try the Ahi Tuna Tostada and Grouper Fingers. Fantastic. They also have a scored flounder that is out of this world.... More

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.

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!
