nice work lunch the salt and pepper calimari (one of my lunch staples) was delicious. The tamarind dressing on the salad is fabulous.

Reasonable food and drinks. Great lunch spot. Worth taking the time. Surprised they wanted .50 extra for ketchup for the Chips but not enough to not take in the experience.

This is a lovely little bar at Horseshoe Bay on Magnetic Island! The food was plentiful and very tasty, the drinks on offer were never-ending and the views of the quietist beach on Magnetic Island were absolutely beautiful! A must-visit bar!!!

Great venue, great food and a fantastic view of the ocean, As you sit there eating or drinking you get to see the activities taking place on the ocean and on the beach

Eight of us dined at Marlin Bar and were delighted with the food that was served. The fish of the day was delicious, service was super quick and staff friendly. Great pub in a beautiful location.

Really nice pub with a great happy hour from 4 to 6. Food was good 3 out of the 4 times we ate there during our trip (burgers were disappointing). Overall a great place to sit and enjoy a cold beer on a hot afternoon

Thank Victoria F
