Marlin & Rays Replacing Bel Air Ruby Tuesday

The restaurant is expected to open in September.

Bel Air restaurant-goers will soon have a new seafood spot to try.

Marlin & Ray's Seafood is coming to Bel Air, filling the vacancy left when closed its doors July 21, according to Marlin & Rays guest services manager Sam Parker.

"That's looking like it's going to be pretty solid [opening date]," Parker said.

The restaurant will be the first Marlin & Rays location in Maryland and the 12th nationwide.

Parker explained the Ruby Tuesday and Marlin & Rays chains have the same owner and closing the Ruby Tuesday was a step toward balancing the number of both chain locations.

The building is still undergoing significant renovations, but hiring is moving forward. The seafood restaurant is holding daily interviews at the business, located at 593 Baltimore Pike, until hiring is complete most likely by the end of August, Parker said.

Those interested in working at the new restaurant can submit applications online.

Glad to see Ruby Tuesday closed. They had made a horrible turn for the worse in past years. And the decision to significantly downgrade their Salad Bar was the last straw for me. The Salad Bar is what made me go to RT. They did it to themselves.

My husband & I love Marlin & Rays! We have have eaten there about 4-5 times and have tried several different menu selections. I have never had a bad experience . I have tried the Jumbo Hand Breaded Shrimp, the Talapia, Lobster & Steak, the all you can eat shrimp, and mac & cheese and the Chocolate Brownie with ice cream adn we have never been disappointed! I like their salad. We will go back! :)
