We decided to try the Thirsty Marlin as an evening out. When we arrived the guy at the door analyzed the seating chart for a while and then asked if we would mind sitting at a table. We didn't have a problem with this since we were going to be seated immediately. Well, there were numerous booths and tables open. We were seated in the middle of empty booths and the restaurant was not busy. Our server tried her best. She forgot several ordered items but was she was very genuine and friendly. Our food however was not good. Overpriced for the portion size and just did not taste good. The band was entertaining and had a good set. At then end of the evening, we decided this was a place we would not come back to.

Thirsty Marlin is a great place to kick back and relax--even though we elected to eat outside (ambulances and fire engines just added to the ambience--) it was a great experience. The service was absolutely excellent--pleasant waiter, didn't feel rushed either ordering or lingering after dinner. The food was plentiful and very tasty. We all agreed that we would go back!

Have eaten lunch here twice on Sundays and had a great experience both times! The servers were friendly and attentive and the food was great! Great daily specials at terrific prices. Casual atmosphere, casual dress, plenty of parking, great food both times, reasonable price. In our group of 4 we had a variety - burgers, salads, daily special, soup of the day, fish sandwich and everyone was very pleased with what they ordered. We definitely will go back!

Very generous servings & great food. We have eaten there the past 2 nights during our stay in Largo. The house salad is fresh, cold & the dressings were homemade & awesome! First night I had The Thirsty Fiesty Chicken - it was so good. Plenty of food for 2 really. I returned tonight for the 2nd meal & chose the Thirsty's Cobb Salad with grilled chicken. A huge salad came to me with wonderful tasting chicken. The Key Lime Pie was absolutely brilliant! The menu is varied enough that you could go back night after night like we did. Great local place close to Holiday Inn.

Went to celebrate an anniversary with friends. Wanted a casual atmosphere so just sat in the bar. The entertainment was great, good music and not loud so we could still have a conversation. Food was good and prices are very reasonable. Will be back for another visit before too long.
