Why You Should Try Thirsty Marlin

Thirsty Marlin Palm Harbor

Consistently rated as one of the best sushi restaurants in Pinellas County, Thirsty Marlin has much more to offer than just spicy tuna sashimi!

Regular daily specials make already reasonably priced tantalizing cocktails and mouthwatering meals even more appealing. Combine those specials with all you can eat meal options, live music events, and weekly questionary trivia and Thirsty Marlin covers all the bases!

Thirsty Marlin Atmosphere

If you’re looking for a quiet and friendly atmosphere to grab a tasty lunch at a great price, Thirsty Marlin is the place to be. With plenty of outside seating and umbrellas over every table, the patio is a great opportunity to get some time away from work.

Prefer to indulge in the nightlife instead? Open until 11pm on Sunday through Thursday and until 1am on Friday and Saturday, Thirsty Marlin lights up the patio, stocks up the bar, and on Thursdays, they even host a live quiz night!

Thirsty Marlin Events

Live music events at the Thirsty Marlin are a weekly occurrence with bands playing every Wednesday and Thursday from 7pm to 10pm, every Friday, and Saturday from 8pm to 12am, and every Sunday from 6pm to 9pm!

Live bands make the perfect backdrop for parties big and small – both of which the grill and bar can accommodate. But, if you’re looking for something a little more intimate, Thirsty Marlin can cater your at-home events with their best of bay seafood, fresh wraps, and sushi/sashimi options.

Thirsty Marlin Cuisine

Fresh Seafood Palm Harbor

The Thirsty Marlin menu is overflowing with options for healthy eaters, seafood lovers, sushi fiends, red meat cravers, sandwich snackers, and everyone in between!

The huge Thirsty Marlin three-page menu highlights more than fifty varieties of sushi rolls, sashimi, nigiri, and chef’s special rolls. If sushi, sashimi, and nigiri aren’t your scene, Thirsty Marlin also places a spotlight on fresh seafood appetizers and entrées. Looking to stay away from fish and seafood altogether? Other offerings include soups, salads, tacos, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, quesadillas, ribs, and steak!

Looking for something lighter? Perhaps an appetizer out on the patio? There is plenty to choose from! Appetizers include fish spread, conch fritters, chicken wings, fried green tomatoes, cheese fries, buffalo style shrimp, calamari, and sashimi.  

Or maybe you are looking to share a little something sweet with the one you love? Try out fresh key lime pie, fried cheesecake, or decadent chocolate cake!

Drop in on Sunday to take advantage of $25.95 all you can eat shrimp, $1 oysters, and $2 baked oysters! Can’t make it until Monday? Then you’re just in time for all you can eat crab legs! Drop in on Wednesday for a $5 build a burger and 75c wings! Thursday it’s all day two for one fish and chips for $16.99. Plus, every Monday and Tuesday, you can get $1 sushi!
