Back in Pensacola again, and of course couldn't resist visiting the Grand Marlin again. As usual, great service and very, very good seafood, so this place doesn't disappoint you. Had the crispy lobster fingers and the Grouper, both delicious.

You can get a combo plate at most seafood restaurants, but I'm not aware of a seafood buffet in Pensacola. There is at least one buffet in Destin.

The Grand Marlin Restaurant features a main dining area with a shucked to order oyster bar, exterior North Drop Bar overlooking the beautiful Santa Rosa Sound, and private meeting rooms. This Pensacola Beach restaurant, with an air of island casualness, serves the highest-quality cuisine, including the freshest local seafood featured on menus designed and printed daily to take advantage of the local bounty. The atmosphere creates a fusion of the Caribbean and the Pensacola Bay Area. Executive Chef Gregg McCarthy has a passion for great-tasting food and particularly loves working his culinary magic with fresh Gulf Coast seafood. Boaters and beach-goers feel comfortable in shorts and flip-flops at the oyster bar, in the dining room and at the North Drop Bar. The Grand Marlin has a space and atmosphere for all occasions and is looking forward to creating an authentic experience between time and tide.
