We had a group of 18 and the staff, including the owner, were so attentive and accommodating. We were placed on the patio which has smoking and requested to be moved and we were! The food was good and a good value. We will definitely...More

We visited the "Thirsty Marlin" based on advice from a native Floridian (yes, there ARE some native Floridians, but not many!) We arrived about 5 PM on a Friday night. The establishment appears to be in an old house, and we were quickly seated in...More

Thirsty Marlin has great local favorites. Sushi specials and all you can eat crab leg specials thru the week. This is another must visit place in downtown Palm Harbor.

The lunch is usually always very good. I go here quite often for happy hour. They allow smoking and the tiki bar out back. Sometimes the smoke will burn your eyes but it's a bar so no problem.

We enjoyed out night at Thirsty Marlin. We sat outside and enjoyed a live singer! We had some great fish and burgers and the service was great. Best food in downtown Palm Harbor

Menu is varied. Not too bad, not too great. Lots of nice outside dinning. Dog friendly on outside patio seating. Service dogs anywhere, no problem. If you like salty seafood and fries, this is the place.

Come here often with buddies after playing a round of golf locally. The service is great and servers and bartenders are a great asset . A plus is the live music at night. Seafood is fresh and portions are large.

Description
Mike and Brian started at the Port of Indecision. for those of you who dont know where that is, it's about three Marlintini's southeast of Disorder. While Mike studied life at sea, Brian studied life at bars. Neither able to pass their SAT's our fathers said stay in school - don't be a fool. But we had to see what life was all about. So we've come to the town of Sutherland seeking fame and fortune. We've got a catchy name. We might say Good Day, we might call you Darlin',but most of all we thank you! Thirsty Marlin.
