“If your looking for a nice dinner..look some where else”
Reviewed March 3, 2011

If you want drinks and snacks you will be fine. But looking for a nice dinner this is not the place.

“Love Marlin's--Spend some time dining on the dunes--ahhh....”
Reviewed November 14, 2010

I visit Tybee once or twice a year and always, always work a meal at Marlin's in. I have enjoyed every dish I have tried (and between family who live on Tybee and me, that's pretty much everything) and have not been disappointed. BTW, if you like key lime pie, save room or take some home with you! The location is superb and parking is not a hassle. Have also enjoyed music there from time to time. A nice relaxing place to eat, drink and say ahhh while gazing at the ocean.....Highly recommend Marlin's.

“Terrible service!!! Basically NONE.”
Reviewed November 10, 2010

I couldn't rate food, value and atmosphere just because the restaurant wouldn't serve us. First, a waitress asked if we would like to eat and then just ignored us, without even giving the menus. Then when we asked if we can get any services, she mentioned that she does not serve that table or area (which was right outside, by the pool) and than we needed to order at the bar. Ok - came to the bar area, no one out there either. After 15 min of waiting for someone to show up, we finally hunt down the hostess. Once again, we asked if we can be served at that table by the pool. The restaurant had customers outside by the pool and waitress pass by that table every time she would go in and out. Earlier that day, the restaurant staff was kicking out the guests of the resort, including us, from that pool right next to the restaurant. And now - they can't serve it because they have too many customers to serve (restaurant had 5 tables and party outside). If this is too much work for you guys, why don't you find another things to do! Apparently, you are not doing a very good job keeping the customers. I felt like asking for the huge favor of the restaurant. You are not doing a favor to us, the customers, WE are doing the favor to you, by coming to this place (can't even call it restaurant, since i couldn't try their food). And WE are paying OUR money for it. Change your service or find other things to do. I am not coming back!
