The Gnarly Marlin Waterfront Eatery and Bar - Rockport, TX

We are thrilled to announce that The Gnarly Marlin, a casual waterfront eatery and bar in Rockport, Texas is open for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week! 

Our move from Lake Travis to the coast is proving to be an awesome transition as the Central Texas ties to Rockport continue to amaze us - it seems everyone has a connection to this special town. We are very excited to meet new friends and welcome them along with our long-time friends to our new gorgeous facility that boasts a spacious open-dining area, a large welcoming bar and lounge, and three outdoor patios - all with a spectacular view of the Bay! 

In addition to serving our tried-and-true favorites including Fish ‘n’ Chips, Cubano Sandwich, Ahi, Burgers, Lobster Roll, Cheesesteak, The Marlin also serves delicious new items like a NY Strip, Clam Chowder, a Pork Chop, Sugar Snap Peas, Sea Scallops, and fresh Shrimp caught by local fishermen - we’ll even cook your catch! Our full bar will feature unique and fun cocktails, margaritas, draft beer, The Gnarly Gar’s famous Rumrunner, Pain Killer, Cross-Eyed Mary, and more! 

An angler and birder’s paradise, Rockport is home to fantastic restaurants, countless festivals, amazing sunrises and sunsets, Goose Island State Park, and Texas’ only Blue Wave Beach!

The Marlin is located between Cove Harbor Marina & Drystack and Cove Harbor Waterfront RV Resort, at 2796 TX-35 South and only 17 miles from Port A! Plan a day-trip or take a few days off, head to the coast, and come see us!
