Walking distance-ish from where we were staying. Fish was so so. Service was excellent but food was bland and dry. Place is really a bar so it was about as clean as you would expect a bar to be. Will not return.

Our meal was good, as well as the service, but the Starvin Marlin was nothing special. The rustic décor was a little dreary, but fine. No complaints, but a little pricey for a burger and ribs.

TERRIBLE!!! Our daughter (8 years old) accidentally left her purse. When she went to get it a few days later and couldn't find it, we backtracked and realized she left it at the Starvin' Marlin. We spoke with the manager who (unapologetically) admitted the cash...More
