We ate at four places on AMI last week, and this was our favorite. Relaxed, cool ambiance, good service, and good food -- elevated a level up from the usual tourist beach joint fare. For example, instead of bringing us a basket of bread to start with, they brought a small platter of edamame pods to peel and eat. Excellent!... More

We had read wonderful reviews about the Blue Marlin so booked our dinner. We loved the interior of the place and did have a wonderful server. The food, though, did not live up to the hype. My husband had one of the specials, clams and grouper. It was quite bland and the clams were some of the smallest we had... More

When another place (with a dinner reservation) kept us waiting far too long, we called the Blue Marlin and they held a table for us. Upon arrival we felt like old friends; service was terrific as was the food. We were on vacation so prices were not a problem and were moderate. No pressure or pretense. Just good food in... More

This is the first time I have ever rated a restaurant, but this restaurant deserves it. This is our second year at Anna Maria Island. We tried a couple of restaurants last year and this was the best. Every dish was excellent. The burger is amazing. The shrimp and grits are excellent. Fresh fish wonderful. We just left dinner there... More

We luckily stumbled upon Blue Marlin Grill via Open Table while tooling around Anna Maria Island and couldn't have been luckier. Everything about the restaurant is PERFECT. The staff, ambiance, clientele and the food!! Only thing I don't like about it is that it's too far from my family's place to go all the time. It's is everything you want... More

This week was my second time eating at this charming little restaurant. I was again so impressed with it! It is unassuming from the street but wow, what a gem. The servers are so knowledgeable and attentive, they really seem to have the cream of the crop here. Every morsel of food was fantastic. Prices were reasonable for what you... More

My wife and I loved the fresh seafood and white sangria. Very good, knowledgeable service. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
