We had an Awesome experience. The salmon and asparagus was amazing. The red snapper as well as the steak was Perfect. The only thing we ate we did NOT like was the Fish and Chips. We had a party of 9 all the dinners were good Unfortunately, we were celebrating Father’s Day Friday night and the Dad and the Grandpa did not get good food. They said it was Too much breading ... oh, Our service was Great too!!

The atmosphere is nice and updated and is refreshing compared to the older restaurants in Panama City Beach. The food is fresh and tastes great. We ordered the bleu cheese chips, pasta, grilled shrimp, and chicken dishes. All of it was cooked perfectly and seasoned excellently. The service was good, but a bit slow. The prices were a little higher, but it's understandable given the quality.

This place was great!! The food was wonderful. We had reservations so we skipped the long wait to be seated. They had so many fresh options. I dined with 4 others. We all loved it!!

Fabulous dining experience! The service was excellent and the food was outstanding! I had the grouper and my husband had the fried shrimp and both were delicious. It's a little pricey but worth every cent!

Delicious! The upstairs bar is lively but every person there- including the bartender- are so nice. A crowded place (make reservations for any party over two and also noisy at peak times. Full menu available at the bar. Fair warning: if you are a seafood lover, you'll have a very hard time choosing. The scallops are delicious! Definitely try the mignonette with the fresh oysters. Good selection of wines by the glass.

Unique seafood dishes and excellent quality. Everything I've had is delicious. It's very clean and has great views and atmosphere. A tiny bit expensive for what it is, but worth it! Only downside is sometimes service is amazing, but they're often short-staffed.

Fantastic place. Food is the best we have found in PCB. Everything we have eaten here has been perfect. My wife's favorite is the crab cakes. We have tried several other places and just keep coming back to the Grand Marlin as our favorite. You won't go wrong coming here.

Had a reservation for Mother's Day. Came in a few minutes early, there was a long line at the hostess stand. We told the hostess we had a reservation. She informed us our table wasn't ready and it would be a few minutes...sure no problem. We sat down we could see an open booth (which is the type of seating we requested) near the front of the dining area. About 15 minutes past our reservation I got the text that our table was almost ready. We headed to the hostess and was handed a piece of paper and instructed to go upstairs (ummm....okay). The booth downstairs remained open. We went upstairs to the open but covered dining room. And we led to a table that was closest to parking lot (great view of the dumpster). It had been raining, the floor and railings surrounding the table were still soaking wet and slippery (my wife almost slipped on the floor!) A man in a blue shirt immediately came over to ask 'How is everything?' and we both just looked at him dumbfounded. We told him we had reservations and feel like they shoved us in a corner. And he then asked if we wanted him to 'spin the table around so we can both face the water'. We asked for a booth and got a table in the middle of a wet floor facing trash. I have heard great things about the food here and was excited to take my wife out for a nice meal. Instead we were treated like our patronage doesn't matter because they have plenty of other people that can fill those seats. I can't comment on the food because if they can't even treat people with respect they don't deserve my business. We will be sharing our experience and I hope if management does read this they take it to heart. Seating people in an area that is wet and slippery is a liability and an accident waiting to happen. What if we would have stayed and it started to rain? What would we get expected to do pull out our umbrella?

Every single thing about this place was amazing. The atmosphere, the water front views, the service, and most definitely the food! Everything is fresh and made from scratch. The BBQ Oysters were awesome and all the fish and Lobster was delicious! Worth every penny!

The food was amazing I don't like seafood but I gave it a try and Wow it was a shock to me. It was better than most stakes that I have. Absolutely delicious. Service was not so great but being with family eating great food still made it a great place. it

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!
