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.

“Good seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

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.

“Excellent and reasonably-priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

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.

“See Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

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.
