Karaoke with John- every Thursday!

Come thirsty, leave happy!! Not a place I would recommend for food, but the energy and fun to be had at karaoke every Thursday night can't be missed.

Had the bitter balls and Lionfish fingers for lunch at the Blue Marlin and it was Excellent! If you've never had Lionfish try it here. Very mild whitefish!

Nice atmosphere where you can get a chilled red wine (too hot here to leave the bottle out). I had whole fried fish one night and grilled fish a few days later with no disappointments. Owner is a very nice guy who is on scene to make sure everyone is happy.

We visited the Blue Marlin twice during our two-week stay in West Bay. Service was great during our first visit during happy hour. Our second visit was not as enjoyable as the service was non-existent. The drinks especially the rum punch was very good.

Wonderful atmosphere with seating on the deck overlooking the water. Great bar that we relaxed at often. Lion fish fingers were fantastic!

Blue Marlin is always a place to go for lunch or dinner. We ate there twice this trip and had a good dinner both times. The beers are cold and the people are nice and friendly. We would definitely go back.

Very simply, the service was terrible. Unfriendly, and when I told the waitress there was hair in my food, she said she'd let the cooks know. My mom and I ordered a salad and the garlic shrimp. The shrimp was dry- it seemed old and rubbery, and for $15 a plate, it seemed like a total steal. The salad, again,... More

Thursday is Karaoke Night at the Blue Marlin. Some performers are amazingly good, and of course, some are not. A bit hot and crowded after 10pm. Could use more fans and tables. Toronto John does a good job as MC.

Very cool atmosphere, we went for the karaoke and stayed for the stiff drinks. Come early and enjoy old Country and Western at it's best (worse?). We LOVED IT.

Ed (Eddie?) behind the bar keeps this place friendly and welcoming. Thursday night karaoke is mandatory. They have a small kitchen, but I don't see many people eating.
