Marlin is nothing special. Food is ok. Service is ok. There is usually no wait. Expensive for what is offered. They put way too much ice in the drinks. Probably would not recommend unless you need to be seated quickly--the burgers are pretty good. They have a nice bar.

We have been coming to LBI for the past five years . Tonight was the first the first and the last time we will be eating here. I had the chowder and it was very good the rest of our meal was not! The seafood pot pie had raw puff pastry on top. The shrimp were frozen shrimp not fresh, there were no scallops, the crab meat was imitation. This is a town filled with wonderful fresh seafood , why didn't they use any? The sauce was suppose to be beschamel, a rich thick creamy sauce, it most definitely was not, My husband and granddaughter had past dishes. Even a beginner cook knows to salt the water before you cook pasta. Obviously their chef missed that class. The pasta had absolutely no taste and there was nothing that can be done after it's cooked. We advised our waitress of the problems she asked if I wanted something different. I didn't think another meal.would be any different so I refused. Upon leaving we informed the manager . I told.he she could see the raw puff pastry still on the table. The only thing she had to say was well he is a new chef maybe to New. I had high hopes.you g in and left sadly sadly disappointed.

We ended up eating here because the wait was outrageous at other local restaurants in Beach Haven and were out for a friends birthday. The service at the bar is usually very attentive and friendly but it lacks in the dining room 100 percent. The meals ordered were eatable, but nothing you would ever rave about to come back and have again. This place is more the "late night entertainment spot" and appeals to many of the tourists. There are many other AMAZING restaurants right around the corner, probably wouldn't make a special trip to eat here again.

We go to Long Beach Island often in the Summer months and are always looking for friendly places to kick back have a decent meal and a few beers to round off the day. This year we stumbled upon a place we have not been to for a number of years. We were standing out side of Buckalews and did not want to go there because we had not been too happy the last two times we went there and looked across the street at the Marlin, a place we had not been to for a very long time, checked it out inside and decided why not, no waiting, sat at the bar it was happy hour and proceeded to have a beer and pick from the bar menu, everything was excellent, our favorites were the peel & eat shrimp, personal pizzas and sliders. Good crowd and great service kept us going back there the entire week. Looking forward to returning next summer.
