Great mojitos!

Great location and good food. We sat at the bar so the service was very good and the bartender was very friendly. The mojitos are terrific again. I wasn't too impressed the last time I was here, but it looks like they're coming back!

The coconut shrimp and crab legs are excellent. We ate outside on a beautiful night when the entire island lost power. The staff was great and the food was delicious. A little hard to find but worth it.

Love the view and the atmosphere. Our waiter, Vince, was wonderful and made our evening with friends very enjoyable. The food isn't bad, just not wonderful. I would go again for the vibe and location.

Food was ok at best. Potions were small compared to other restaraunts on the island. The location is great very short walking distance from our condo. Bottom line there should be no specual trip made for marlins

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The fried plantains are to die for. Every meal was truly impressive. Our waitress, Michaela was excellent. Thanks for an enjoyable and delicious visit. We will be back

Ate here for lunch during our stay in Tybee. Tried the fish tacos, crab cake blt, and the coconut shrimp. Everything was fresh and the portion size was generous.

I had the fish tacos. They didn't have any flavor. The black beans and rice weren't good either. I did enjoy the crab legs we ordered, but they were very small and didn't have much meat in them. Our waitress was great though.

We are spending our 14th year on Tybee for vacation and this was the first time we ever went to Marlin Monroes- it was good and my fish taco would have even been better if I had ordered fried fish instead of grilled- good service and nice atmosphere

The first time we tried to eat here, they were closed...but our persistence paid off. We sat outside at the bar and our food was really good.
