So delicious. Great service. Fabulous atmosphere a Wish I could eat every meal here. Food made fresh everyday. They serve locally sourced fish daily and all their desserts are made in house. Best restaurant in town!!

Great Food and Waterfront Atmosphere. Normally have formal dinner here with my #PanamaCityBeach real estate clients. But, stopped in for Happy Hour bite and found their #Seafood #Tacos to be the best around. They bake their corn tortillas and the seafood is awesome!

Excellent brunch. Great 2.50 mimosas and we loved every dish. Everyone was very satisfied. I highly recommend the grouper piccata. Our server, Sarah J was wonderful. Highly knowledgeable regarding the menu, personable and gave great recommendations. She personified excellence and the Grand Marlin. Can’t wait to go back!

Large table of 8 with friends. Crab Cakes, Scottish Salmon, Wednesday special Ribs all great. Also, the Smoked Seafood Chowder is excellent. But the best part was our server Sarah! Very friendly and efficient. Ask for her, and you will not be disappointed! Thanks again Sarah!!

The food is outstanding. We come here often and never leave hungry. Their upstairs deck has very nice views. Sometimes the hostess staff can be a little rude but usually the servers are great.

This is one of my favorite go-to restaurants for holidays and special occasions or for anytime I feel like dressing up. Food is excellent and service is top-notch. The restaurant is located on the Harbor where all the big boats are but I usually go there at night. The more formal dining is on the main floor but the upper level offers more casual dining in an outdoor balcony setting. Both levels offer a well-stocked bar.

The highlight of my birthday trip with my girlfriend. We came in and the staff was beautiful and friendly telling us about their story about the hurricane. Then we had Peter as a server and he was gracious to us about our questions on the menu. We had the seafood gumbo (ok, wished it was served at a hotter temperature) and calamari(great taste and flavor)as an appetizer. Then came the great stuff. I ordered a ribeye and it came out perfect with green beans and lobster Mac that was amazing. She ordered the Grouper entree that was unbelievable. When we make this trip again, I will come back here again. Thank you Grand Marlin!

Have heard several recommendations to this place and glad we came. The grouper piccata was amazing and I had the rare yellowfin tuna with wasabi mash potatoes all in a ginger sauce. Both plates were amazing and very flavorful. They are a bit pricey but one of the better restaurants I found so far between Panama City and Destin.

I recently went here for a special event for an older family member having a birthday. The service was great, but the food made me horribly sick. I ate the seafood pasta, and it wasn't long before i had to excuse myself to the bathroom. I won't be going back anytime soon, for the price you pay for the meal it's just not worth the money. Great location and polite hostess though.

Excellent tuna cooked perfectly in a classy yet relaxing environment.

I have taken my wife many times. Most recently, we had our waiter come twice in the first ten minutes, then disappear for about 45 minutes. In that time I went to the bar and ordered a 2nd round of the same drinks... For a 1/4 of the price. The waiter didn't return til he realized what I had done. Food was fine, service has hit an all time low by any restaurant standard and the price doesn't warrant a visit.

Good food, friendly service. I would like to give a more detailed fmreview, but frankly they were just overall good. The service was good, with friendly and polite staff. The food is consistently good on several dishes. It's not crowded, and easy to get reservations.
