Decent

Cappucino had a strong after-taste; Shrimp scampi was good. Loved the Cannoli's. Waitress did not charge for Cappucino. Nice touch.

Food not too good, consistently. Great location, customers are not locals since local know better. Makes you wonder how this place has been here so long.

We just ate lunch here. Although the restaurant is about to close for the season, the menu was still complete. This is a casual shore place with big bar scene. We just had lunch, but the grilled calamari was excellent, Fried zucchini appetizer delicious to munch on while enjoying drinks. The Brazilian Cosmo was best Cosmo I have ever had... More

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.
