From Christmas Eve to Valentine’s Day, there’s no better way to celebrate the season than with incredible cocktails, a gourmet meal and a beautiful view. We’re talking about Marker 32, of course! The holidays in Florida are meant to be spent on the water, and that’s exactly what you’ll get here. But in case you aren’t completely convinced, here are five very real reasons to join us at Marker 32 for your next holiday dinner:


Great Service

Our staff members are the absolute best, and we don’t say that lightly. We specialize in fresh seafood, season cocktails and fine wine, and every waiter, waitress and bartender can give you a detailed rundown of each menu item. They know their stuff, because we want you to have the best dining experience possible. Not to mention, we have some of the greatest chefs in Jacksonville! Don’t believe us? Check out some of the awards we’ve won.


A View that’s To Die For

No matter where you sit in our elegant little restaurant, you’ll have a beautiful view of the water and the boats cruising by. Besides, you know your seafood is fresh when you can sea fishermen at work right outside the window! From the minute you walk up the stairs of Marker 32 to the last bite of dessert, you won’t be able to take your eyes off the picturesque intracoastal.


Perfect for Parties

It’s not all that often you can have an intimate, sophisticated meal without the stuffy feeling associated with many fine dining restaurants. At Marker 32, we understand living at the beach. We embrace the casual lifestyle, but know the yearning to dine well. Whether you and your party put on fancy dresses or flip flops, you’ll fit right in with us. If you have guests visiting from out of town, take them somewhere they can’t get anywhere else! Marker 32 is the obvious answer.


The Drink Menu, Hello!

We have a killer bar, but even better bartenders. Our wine list is expansive, our beer selection is curated and our cocktails will have you wanting seconds and thirds. Whether you’re joining us for some poke and a glass of wine, or you’re ordering multiple courses, we’ll have a drink that fits any meal choice. But if alcohol isn’t your thing, we have many non-alcoholic beverages to choose from. From a perfectly sweetened lavender tea to a hot shot of espresso with a lemon twist, we’ve got you covered.


Last, but Certainly not Least…

The food, of course! Our owner and chef, Ben Groshell was named one of the best chefs in America. Every meal we serve reflects his incredible attention to detail and unique vision for dining. Marker 32 serves the freshest seafood you can possibly get and the finest cuts of meat this town has seen. We serve a few southern favorites, like Shrimp & Grits and Blue Crab Cakes, but we also explore fine dining with our Bistro Steak, Seared New Bedford Scallops and Rosemary Grilled Octopus, to name a few.


If that doesn’t convince you, we’re not sure what will. We can’t wait to see you and your guests over the next few weeks, and we have no doubt you’ll love spending the “winter” months on the water with a great glass of wine. Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
