The Marlin Bar blends casual dining with Tommy Bahama retail store

Tommy Bahama has done it again, expanding their original clothes-only location to include a new dining hot spot — The Marlin Bar.

Located right across the street from their old location, The Marlin Bar features fabulous outdoor seating and a come-as-you-are atmosphere.

The Marlin Bar mixes Tommy’s typical island style with a modern flare.

The process is simple:  grab a menu, seat yourself and then order at the bar.  After your order is in, the bar’s staff will take care of your every need, including cocktail refills and bill drop-off.

There are plenty of seating options at the bar, including tables and a more secluded sidebar, tucked down a hallway adjacent to the shop.

Mixing casual with class, The Marlin Bar serves up delicious food for a reasonable price.

All entrees are in the $10 range and served on bamboo platters at impressively fast ticket times.

Grab and go bites include sandwiches, salads and a plethora of taco options, from barbacoa to Mahi.

To finish, they also offer one sublime dessert:  dark chocolate dipped key lime pie, perfectly cooled and served on a popsicle stick for easy consumption. You will go home only to dream about the deliciousness that night.

The Marlin Bar is pet friendly and offers water bowls for your pet to stay hydrated as you sip and bite away at the menu offerings.

Happy hour prices and hours do not disappoint either.

The Marlin Bar offers a selection of specially priced signature cocktails, wine and beer daily from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. All prices range from $4 to $8 for martinis.  My favorite? The freshly crafted grapefruit basil martini.  Make sure to get a seat early, because they fill up quick.

The store is still in tact and better than ever.  The interior is inviting and carries out the same friendly customer service The Marlin Bar exhibits.

Ranging from clothing to coffee table books, the new store is sure to have something for anyone.
