Marlin Moon Grille

We recently took a trip out to the beach to try Marlin Moon Grille. My friend Samantha is a waitress there and has been telling me how great the food is. We finally made it out there, and now we are mad that we waited that long!! The restaurant is located in the spot that Taco Lu recently vacated. We visited on a Wednesday night and they were pretty busy. Even though there were a lot of tables, the service was really good. Samantha came around and checked on us frequently. She was great, and I'm not just saying that because I know her!
We tried a few different appetizers. The first was the Tuna Nachos. They can be summed up in one word, amazing!! The description is Sesame Crusted Tuna on Won Ton Chips with Seaweed Salad, a Sweet Teriyaki Drizzle, Spicy and Wasabi Cucumber Aioli. I loved the teriyaki drizzle, That's not something that you would normally think to put on there, but it works!!

We also tried the Shrimp and Grits, which is Sharp White Cheddar Grits with a Tasso Ham and Holy Trinity Sauce. It is no secret that I love shrimp and grits...and I approve of these 100%! The shrimp were huge and the dish had such a bold and delicious flavor.

For our entrees, I decided on the Crab Cakes. I love crab cakes so I was very eager to try these. Well I was not disappointed at all!! These are seriously the best I have had in Jax. There were large pieces of crab and very little filler. The crab cakes were served with hand cut fries, which were also very good. They were crispy and salted nicely.

My husband got the LaTeDa Pasta (which was hilarious listening to him try to pronounce). It had Shrimp, Lobster, Lump Crab, Shittake Mushrooms and Asparagus in an Asiago Cheese Cream Sauce tossed with Ribbon Pasta. I tried a little bit of it and it was ridiculous good. He was also raving about it for a long while.

Verdict: Loved it!!
If you are looking for a great special occasion place, you should definitely consider Marlin Moon Grille. The food was very fresh and the service was great!!
