“Good seafood”
Review of Marlin Moon Grille - CLOSED

Marlin Moon Grille
Price range: US$4 - US$24
Cuisines: Seafood
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Eat Drink Fish!! Is a perfect slogan for this fine casual dining spot. The cozy bar is lively with a cast of characters in front of and behind the bar, which was made to resemble the transom of a sport fishing boat, "The Pretty Work" from Islamorada, FL. The signature adult beverage is the Orange Crush. You gotta try one!! Food wise it's all about the Maryland Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, fresh local Mayport seafood with beef, pork and chicken options available. Marlin Moon Grille was the recipient of the 2009 People's Choice, Restaurant Association of Maryland's Favorite Restaurant Award before relocating to Jax Beach.

The seafood and all of our food was wonderful. The portions were average and the fact it comes fresh from the sea is a bonus. It was a little pricey. At the time we went it was just filling up and there was not enough wait staff to accommodate guests. We were by the door and watched people wait to be seated with a half empty restaurant. The staff needed to pay more attention.

Great seafood in the old Taco Lu's location crab cakes, grouper, and flounder are all good. Non-seafood dishes are also good such as pork chops and veal chop. Johnny is the best bartender in Jacksonville. Eat at the bar and enjoy. Lack of parking is the only downside.

Marlin Moon imports the traditions of Maryland seafood cuisine to Jacksonville Beach. Add an Orange or grapefruit crush, with friendly and helpful bar tenders, then you'll understand why the main Jacksonville resort concierges recommend Marlin Moon seafood for there guests. It is a great place to just linger for a casual appetizer. Parking is a bit of a challenge but the orthopedic office parking is available during non-working hours.

I was looking for a restaurant to host my rehearsal dinner. I seen a review from a high school friend and contacted the restaurant. Gary was extremely nice and responded to all my questions. When we arrived we greeted like we were old friends! The food was awesome! The tuna nachos were so delicious. The Grapefruit Crush was so refreshing!! The best restaurant in Jacksonville Beach!!!! Thanks Gary!!!!

Thanks Nikolai,
For the dressing we take our house made Caesar dressing and spike it with what else, A-1 Sauce. We try to do the fries like Thrashers on the boardwalk in Ocean City, MD. That salad is a Pittsburgh thing.
