The Gnarly Marlin

The Gnarly Marlin


About Us

Our move from Lake Travis to the Texas coast in 2022 has proven 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 welcome our long-time friends and new ones to our 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 water!

In addition to serving our tried-and-true favorites including Fish ‘n’ Chips, Cubano Sandwich, Sesame Crusted Ahi, Shrimp Diablo, Fried Pickles, Burgers, Lobster Roll, and Cheesesteak, The Gnarly Marlin also serves delicious items like fresh oysters, a NY Strip, Clam Chowder, Lobster Bites, a Pork Chop, Shrimp and Grits, and we’ll even cook your catch!

Our full bar features unique and fun cocktails, margaritas, draft beer, The Gnarly Gar’s famous Rum Runner, Pain Killer, Cross-Eyed Mary, and more!

Join us for Sunday Brunch on the Water, served weekly 10am to 2pm.

An angler and birder’s paradise, Rockport is home to fantastic restaurants, countless festivals, and 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, only 13 miles from Port Aransas!
