Godd food, slow service

We ate here on Friday & Sat night. On Friday, the service was fast & food was great. On Sat the service was very slow but food still excellent. I don't think they can handle crowds, They had some of the worst live music I ever heard on Sat night. We had planned to go elsewhere just to try out... read more

This place is at the resort where I rented a townhouse for the week. I had several meals there and a few great bar beverages, too. I am not dog person, so was not thrilled with the several guests with dogs. But, the food was really good. I had a nice salad with shrimp and chicken. I had the crab... More

Being familiar with Tybee and Savannah restaurants one's expectations would be high. Both areas have great food whether it's seafood,steak chicken or bbq, and friendly service. Except Marlin Monroe's. If you're looking for mediocre food,slow service at a higher price then this is your place. A person in my party ordered a hot dog and it came our cold. How... More

My g/f and I were on Tybee island for Pride weekend and this place was a sister restaurant of Fannies beachside rest. So we decided to try it for brunch on Sunday. Ok our mistake no brunch. We arrived a little early they open at 11am. A few of us were waiting outside until 11:20 then a very abrupt host... More

Great location, right on the beach and poolside to the Colony Beach Resort. We hung out by the pool on a Saturday and service was ridiculously slow. 2 bartenders making exotic drinks makes this tough which is why I didn't rate it lower. Fantastic drinks, by the way. The grilled pineapple mojito was our favorite! My biggest disappointment was watching... 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

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 Bloody your way!

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
