The grouper was very good. Several people in our party had the filet, which they also enjoyed. Key lime pie is a must here.

Excellent seafood and steaks. Service is outstanding. The restaurant is in a wonderful location for any season of the year. Breads are wonderful as well. There is nothing "second rate" about the Marlin Grill. I recommend it if you're looking for one of the better restaurants in the Sandestin area.

Business trip for work and ate at the Marlin Grill one night. Decorated beautifully for Christmas and we got seated right away. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu options and made recommendations to us. I ordered the pork tenderloin and it was delicious!

My husband & I had the most exquisite dinner last night. Almost chose another restaurant based on some bad reviews - so glad we went with our instinct. Service, ambiance, food out of this world. Went with recommendation on tripadvisor for creamed spinach to accompany our fish - incredible!! Can't say enough - truly a spectacular dining experience.

We sat outside in the dark and it was a great atmosphere. Very attentive staff. They have a separate staff member bringing bread and water. Food was very good. Excellent Baked Brie!

We had dinner here in mid August. Baytowne Wharf was not as crowded anymore as it usually is in Summer time. Marlin Grill is always on our list, when we stay in Destin. So it was this time. Our waitress was extremely nice. She understood what we wanted and gave some honest advice about the sizes of the dishes. Especially... More

We ended up dining at the Marlin Grill three nights in a row because the food was just fantastic! We plan to go again the next we visit Sandestin. We tried everything from the fresh seafood entrees, steaks, poultry and many of the soups, salads and appetizers.
