“Wonderfully Tasty, Overly Rich Food”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

It's easy to drive past this restaurant which is not visible from Beach Blvd and has an inconspicuous sign that is easily missed, but lots of people apparently know the restaurant is there because at 8 PM on Thursday night when we arrived, the place was full.

The food is remarkably good! I had the Stfi Salad (arugula, candied pecans, blue cheese, and peaches with sorghum vinaigrette). It had spectacular flavor. It was very rich, really too rich. I would have liked it better with more greens and fruit and less candied pecans. I split the salad with my companion. I couldn't have eaten it all myself. As it was, I saved some of it for dessert. That's how sweet and rich it was (I've never saved salad for dessert before!)

The appetizer of six broiled oysters (with bacon, picaroon Romano, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes) were the best oysters I've had since having oysters Rockefeller at Locke-Ober in Boston years ago! These Marker 32 broiled oysters had great flavor. They were also very, very rich.

There is a view of boats and the Intracoastal. Staff are nice. Prices are moderately expensive for Jacksonville. Nice place for a date. Suggest reservations.

“Ok!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

The food here is good, pretty scenic, but I don't know if I'd go running back anytime soon. It's not bad though.

“Always A Great Meal”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

If it's seafood you want, then Marker 32 is a must "sea"! Fresh and well prepared seafood is their specialty and they don't disappoint. My favorite is the grilled grouper. Usually crowded -- call ahead for reservations. Parking is free but sometimes a challenge during peak hours. Enjoy!

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Loved the scallops on grits! The atmosphere was more casual than I had imagined, but quaint and the service was great as well.
