Great lace to eat and drink on Tybee...right on the ocean...fun to come right from swimming to enjoy snacks or meals; sometimes they have live music.

So disappointing. Worst restaurant meal we've ever had. Everything cold and tasted leftover. Cole Slaw was brown and dry. Crab legs room temp and dry. Butter was also room temp. Fried shrimp OK but not hot. fries were also cold and dry. Just awful. Service was good.

We sat on the deck just before sunset. Lovely view of the ocean. We shared a loaf of flower pot bread (the honey butter is scrumptious) and had a few drinks. Peaceful.

The food was only mediocre and the service the same. We had the fish tacos which I would not recommend. The cocktails were decent.

Very colorfully decorated space. Had a great outdoor place but the bugs were just biting too bad to sit outside. Food and drinks were very good and reasonable. Waitress was kind.

The seafood was decent, and we didn't have to go walk or drive anywhere from our hotel. Glad we tried it, we will certainly be back. The staff was very friendly as well.

No "wow" factor here, but the beer selection is decent. Service was pretty nice, and the food was good. Definitely a cheap and easy option on Tybee.

We only stopped Marlin Monroe's on our arrival afternoon, and I wish we had time to go back. I loved the grouper fingers, and the patio view was a "WELCOME TO THE BEACH". It is tucked in there, though. It's easier to see from the beach than it is from the street, but it's a close walk if you are... More

This place was actually rated have with TripAdvisor. We went there because it was on the beach and there were no other restaurants around. It was very difficult to find way back behind two hotels. The bugs were so bad on the deck that we had to go inside. The food was just so-so and the service was not much... More

We stayed just a few doors down at the DeSoto Beach Bead and Breakfast. Marlin Monroe's offered us great shrimp and crab at a great price. The view from the deck of the beach was wonderful and really added to our dining experince.
