We have been here the past two times and have enjoyed it both times. This time we were able to take advantage of the music from next door at the coffee shop. Can't wait to go back. Oh, and they have an avocado dip that comes with their free chips and it's delicious!

As homeowners and frequent diners in Rocky Point (aka Puerto Penasco), we've experienced a lot of local food. Had wanted to stop by the quaint looking Blue Marlin for a long time; wish we'd made it sooner! We had a lovely lunch ($3; yep, that's $3) of the fish taco special (two yummy tacos served with fresh slaw/salsa, marinated red... More

Enjoyed the Smoked Marlin Tacos! They are not always available so you need to ask if they are available if this is what you are after. It was a great flavor and a nice change from shrimp or fish. You will be glad you tried them (if they are available). My wife tried the flounder and she said it was... More

We did a sampler of their menu for two people. It was a special that they told us about and wasn't listed anywhere. We couldn't eat it all because it was so much food! We started with a green salad with homemade dressing and then fried oysters and a crab quesadilla that was delicious!!!!! I could go back and just... More

The food was very good, but not great. For appetizers, we had the smoked blue marlin and shrimp cocktail. Then flounder for dinner. The bread was the most unique aspect to the dinner. I would go there again, it was a tasty meal, but not gourment or memorable.

Every item is prepared with the freshest ingredients, and will be served to you with a smile. Your will experience peacefulness as you dine on the cozy deck looking out at the Sea of Cortez.

This was the first restaurant my husband and I stopped at when we arrived in town. Restaurant was small and I was under the impression there was an ocean front view however the ocean is a street away. My husband ordered a shrimp salad to die for and I had a (mexicano shrimp cocktail) along with a mixed drink and... More

We ate here for dinner based on the reviews. Honestly, we were a little taken back about the size of the place. There are only 2-3 tables on the patio (teeny tiny) and only a few tables inside. The menu is small with not much selection of seafood as I expected based on the reviews. My husband got garlic flounder... More
