Eating here right now and I am so compelled to write this because I am so annoyed at the dining experience. Made reservations; walked in and there is no one here. They are telling people behind us there is an hour wait- for what? After waiting for 10min to get service, we finally order drinks and they come after another... More

After sending back cold crab raviolis and a Undercooked fish(which we never do)..the manager came out and would not comp our meals after only taking... More

Good location, but that is about as far as it goes. There is little energy and the results are pretty predicatble unfortunately. Maybe they can turn it around, it has potential.

We went for our 10th anniversary. Bad idea. The waitress got the drink order wrong off the batand for attitude when we tried to correct it. Apps were good. Ordered the special 1lb lobster with the crab for an extra 3.95. The claws of the lobster were good, but the tail was rubbery. I told the waitress and she said... More

We were a party of 5 who were told to wait 30 mins. I had no problem with the wait as I understood that this was a Saturday night dinner. As we waited at the bar, a party of 7 arrives 5 mins after us. They are white we are Asians. They get their table BEFORE us. I let it... More

Marlin is nothing special. Food is ok. Service is ok. There is usually no wait. Expensive for what is offered. They put way too much ice in the drinks. Probably would not recommend unless you need to be seated quickly--the burgers are pretty good. They have a nice bar.

We ended up eating here because the wait was outrageous at other local restaurants in Beach Haven and were out for a friends birthday. The service at the bar is usually very attentive and friendly but it lacks in the dining room 100 percent. The meals ordered were eatable, but nothing you would ever rave about to come back and...

We go to Long Beach Island often in the Summer months and are always looking for friendly places to kick back have a decent meal and a few beers to round off the day. This year we stumbled upon a place we have not been to for a number of years. We were standing out side of Buckalews and did... More
