For reservation requests of 9 or more guests, please see the Reservation Policies sections below. We encourage parties of all sizes to make a reservation at least 10 days in advance to secure the desired date and time.
All reservations come with a 2.5-hour table time limit. Please see Reservation Policies below for more details.
Please note, if your desired reservation time is not available through OpenTable, we have no more reservations available during that time.
Please review the reservation policies below, which have been implemented in order to provide an enjoyable experience to all guests.
How to Make a Reservation: Reservations for 8 or less guests must be made by using the OpenTable application above or by contacting the restaurant directly at 305.852.9315. Reservations for 8 or less guests which are emailed to the restaurant should not be considered “booked”.
Table Time Limit: Beachfront dining is an experience we are fortunate enough to provide to our guests. In order to provide this experience to as many guests as possible, all reservations, unless otherwise pre-arranged with management, have a 2.5-hour time limit. Guests who exceed this limit will have a charge added to their check in the amount of $75/table, per 30-minutes of overage.
Guest Count: Reservations are made for the specific number of guests identified on the original reservation confirmation. Any request to increase the guest count in the party must be approved by Marker 88 prior to arrival, and will be done so based on availability. Please note, requests to increase the guest count for Friday, Saturday and Sunday reservations during peak times are challenging to approve, due to the large number of guests dining with us. We will make every attempt to grant a guest increase request.
Seating Times: Kindly allow a grace period of 15 minutes for seating during peak times.
Seating Requests: All seating requests, including waterside, sand, glider, and musician-oriented, will be noted and granted based on availability, but should not be seen as a guarantee. Please see Empty Tables Upon Arrival below, for answers to commonly asked questions.
Late Arrival: Guests who arrive late by 15 minutes or more, with or without notice to the restaurant, may lose their reservation to walk-in parties. We will make every attempt to seat your party at the earliest possible time, when the full party arrives.
Empty Tables Upon Arrival: Please be advised an empty table or section upon your arrival is not necessarily available for walk-ins and may be needed to accommodate a guest’s or group reservation. This is particularly true within 1-1.5 hours prior to sunset, which is our most reserved seating time. We appreciate your patience while joining our waitlist.
Desired Reservation Time Not Available on OpenTable: If you do not see your desired time available via the OpenTable Reservation System, unfortunately, the time is not available. This is not a system error but rather we have reached our capacity for a particular seating.
Parties of 9-12 Guests: For reservations of 9-12 guests, please contact the restaurant directly at GuestServices@marker88.info or by calling 305.852.9315, 7 days per week, from 10:30AM to 9:00PM. Site Fees may apply. We encourage all larger parties to inquire about availability at least 10 days prior to dining with us in order to secure the desired time. Due to high inquiry volume, please allow up to 24 hours for a coordinator to respond to your request. You must receive a reservation confirmation from OpenTable or from a Host in order for your reservation to be considered “booked”. COVID-19 Regulations: Currently, Monroe County restricts guest count to no more than 10 per table. Reservations will be split into 2 tables if made for 10 or more guests.
Groups of 13+ Guests: For Group Reservations of 13 or more, please contact the restaurant directly for Food & Beverage minimums and Site Fees at Groups@marker88.info or by calling 305.852.9315, 7 days per week, from 10:30AM to 9:00PM.
