Went here for dinner, so glad we found this place. It's very clean the wait staff is very friendly. They have a great menu , they offer great fish dinners at a reasonable price. I got captain's special, it was delicious, it's a full meal, comes with salad and bread. Can't wait to go again.

As soon as you walk in, you are transported from the strip plaza parking lot into a welcoming, casual and roomy restaurant. We went early in the dinner hour, so the place was busy but not packed and chaotic. Our server told us he was new to Marlin Darlin, but he did an excellent job - attentive without smothering. He...

This was a CVS converted into a restaurant a few years ago. They have made many adjustments over the years, but all for the good. Another great restaurant by the same owner as Salt Rock Grill, this one too has signature dishes that are just fabulous. Reservations recommended here. Call it in and they send you a text confirmation! Very... More

This trip to the area we ate at this restaurant two times. Both times, at around 7pm, we got immediate seating. There is a early menu that after 6 you can still choose from but for a few dollars more. Both times I had the Chicken Belleair from this part of the menu. It was so delicious.....and a light meal....

I am a local and this is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. I always take my out of town guests here. I recommend the onion soup dumplings as an appetizer, and the hogfish snapper as the entree. My friend loves the seafood pasta. You really can't go wrong here!

Second time in a month - fiery sandwiches at lunch and second time at dinner. Not on Gulf Blvd so it was easier to get at table in peak season. Service - waiter was socially awkward, very talkative but spit on with refills and very attentive. salads are sorta sad and unimaginative. The ponchetrain fish entree...seafood was cooked well but...
