Outstanding service and delicious food. We had crab cakes and the blackened Mahi. The dining area/decor could use some updating, but definitely no complaints about the food.

Someone from Maryland told me about Marlin Moon Grille and that that there was some tie there with authentic Chesapeake Bay Seafood cuisine. And they were right. I used to go to Baltimore on business and have compared their prepared seafood, especially crab cakes, to...More

Eat Drink Fish!! Is a perfect slogan for this fine casual dining spot. The cozy bar is lively with a cast of characters in front of and behind the bar, which was made to resemble the transom of a sport fishing boat, "The Pretty Work" from Islamorada, FL. The signature adult beverage is the Orange Crush. You gotta try one!! Food wise it's all about the Maryland Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, fresh local Mayport seafood with beef, pork and chicken options available. Marlin Moon Grille was the recipient of the 2009 People's Choice, Restaurant Association of Maryland's Favorite Restaurant Award before relocating to Jax Beach.
