April 29, 2019 –Pensacola, Fl— OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, unveiled its annual listing of Top 100 Best Brunch Restaurants in America for 2019 today and The Grand Marlin of Pensacola Beach was recognized. The Grand Marlin is the only restaurant in North Florida awarded the honor.

“We strive to create a truly unique dining experience for our guests. We are humbled to be recognized with this distinction,” said Bryan Housley, Operating Partner and President of The Grand Marlin.

The annual list comes on the heels of OpenTable’s national #DiningMode campaign, a challenge to diners to set aside their phones while dining with mom and connect with those around them this Mother’s Day. Diners are now encouraged to give moms the gift of being truly present at a celebratory brunch at any of this year’s winning restaurants making honoring the mom in your life easy and more rewarding.
OpenTable data shows that 81 percent of diners book their Mother’s Day reservations two weeks in advance, so the list comes at the perfect time to help diners find the best brunch eatery to celebrate the mother figure in their lives.
“On Mother’s Day 2018, we seated more diners than any other day that year and recognize that celebrating mom is a priority for our diners,” said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. “The honorees on this year’s best brunch list are creating experiences that will dazzle her and make embracing our #DiningMode challenge a snap, with sublime drinks and dishes and friendly service. You won’t be tempted to pick up your phone on May 12 at any of these spots.”
Featuring restaurants coast-to-coast, across 24 states and Washington, D.C., the list is a comprehensive look at the best brunch spots in the country. The Best Brunch Restaurants in America list was culled from more than 12 million verified diner reviews of over 30,000 restaurants in 50 states and Washington, D.C. The 100 Best Brunch Restaurants list is generated solely from diner reviews collected between March 1, 2018 and February 28, 2019. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration.
