The service was awesome and so was the food!

The server was well informed and the food was better than expected. We also had a cocktail that was perfect.

Excellent raw oyster deal on Monday. Very good waiter. as well. My wife is allergic to them, so she had a shrimp cocktail. Nice large shrimp prepared to perfection. It’s on the expensive side, but considering the atmosphere and being on the water, that’s to be expected.

Easter dinner was perfect. After the brunch crowd departed, our 2:30 reservation provided us with a table by the window as soon as we arrived.
After we chose our entrees, our server Sierra (also a sommelier) recommended a few options from the wine list and brought us an excellent bottle of white Bordeaux, perfectly chilled.
The Ginger Soy Yellowfin tuna with spicy baby bok choy, wasabi whipped potatoes and shiitake mushroom jus was delicious and cooked rare at my request. The delicious crab cakes with fresh lump crab in a creole mustard cream sauce were served with green beans, whipped potatoes, and corn relish.
For dessert, we shared a praline cup filled with vanilla ice cream garnished with fresh berries and drizzled with chocolate. There was not a spoonful left.
Sierra provided us with excellent service which greatly enhanced our experience.
The Grand Marlin is now our designated restaurant for special occasions.

Though I am not a fan of "popular" places, the Grand Marlin has good food and a decent atmosphere. We visited with our son, his wife and a six-year-old grandson. The prices were on the higher end, but not bad. Everyone felt comfortable and were happy with their food. Expect a wait on weekends, but our kids loved it!

Thank Ginger M
