My wife and I went here for dinner and we both agreed the crab cakes were straight out of Maryland, best we have ever had in Florida. The lobster bisque soup was amazing. We will be coming back again and highly recommend others to try...More

Great raw oysters from St. James River, but service was lacking. They hesitated to seat us since we didn't have reservations, but there were 2 10-seat tables, 2 8- seat, 2 4-seat and 2 2-seat vacant the whole time we were there. Server couldn't be...More

Outstanding service and delicious food. We had crab cakes and the blackened Mahi. The dining area/decor could use some updating, but definitely no complaints about the food.

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.
