Loved the short ferry ride over to Marley's. We sat outside in the shade and drink wine that we brought as we waited for our meal. Get there early as there was a line when we left. Enjoyed the food.

We have been visiting restaurants in the area in search of the best chowder. In this part of the world, there is only one Clam. Marleys does it very well. Lots of clams. Made on premise. Potatoes cooked just well,enough. Somewhat peppery, but hey, the place is called Marleys isn't it? Setting is a big plus. On an island. Tables under shade trees. Lots of boats to look at .

You can get there by the people-only ferry boat at no cost. This place is not to be missed; get there early; especially on weekends. They open at 7:30am.

I have only been there for Breakfast, but I think they serve lunch too.

Beautiful family owned little place by the water. You can sit outside where there's a very light breeze or go in doors for A.C. Had the eggs Benedict with crab meat very good ! My son had the Marley burger with bacon and cheese excellent. We were from out of town and found a gem by the water.

We have been to Marley's twice this year. Both times the food has been very good. We love that they have a variety of options, including the made-in-house Bolivian specialties- Empanadas and Saltenas- delicious! My husband is still talking about the jerk chicken sandwich he had. The ceviche is superb!
The atmosphere is great with the location on the water being excellent and a fun, relaxing island vibe with reggae music playing in the background. They can definitely get busy, so keep that in mind or better yet, make a reservation. Yes, the wait time for food is not the same as a local diner, but the food is far superior. It's BYOB, which is always nice. So bring a cocktail, slow down and relax. Even if you're not on vacation, you'll certainly feel like you are at Marley's.
