Great Service, Good Food, Pricey

We ate here while on vacation at the recommendation of so many reviewers! It was good, the service was great, but I'm not sure it was worth the $100.00 for 2 adults & 2 children & we didn't drink either! My husband had the stew ($31.00) and said it was good but not the best he has ever had. I... read more

On our recent vacation we had the pleasure of dining at Blue Marlin. Our family consisted of 3 adults and 2 children. We had the lobster and shrimp scampi, grouper, shrimp and grits, and the blackened group alfredo. Everyone loved their dishes and the amount of food was just right. One of the best things about the restaurant is that... More

My hubby and I have been vacationing on AMI for about eight years, but somehow we'd never ventured down to check out Blue Marlin until this past trip. All in all, I'm glad we tried it...though for the price of my entree, there are other restaurants in the area that provide a bigger portion of food. We started by ordering... More

We ate here tonight and the food was excellent. They were able to accommodate a party of 8 easily. We sat outside with the live band and enjoyed the music..... My husband and I had the shrimp and grits for an appetizer and it was awesome!!!!! They did run out of snapper, which was their special, and that is what... More

This is our third year to visit this restaurant, and I can honestly say that is one of the best meals that I enjoy all year long. Their snapper is amazing, and you can choose from 3 different ways to have it prepared. All three options are outstanding. Overall, our family has eaten here around 7 times, and we all... More

After a recent dinner to Blue Marlin.... I am in love. We went on a Friday night with no reservation. Had to wait about 20 minutes for a table because they were so busy. But- the waiting was half of the enjoyment. Great little outside bar with good wine & beer selection. There was also a band playing that was... More

As locals, we do not eat out a whole lot. But, for my wife's birthday i took her to Blue Marlin. It lived up to all I had heard about! The owner apparently lives in the fishing village just across the bridge and believe me- the freshness of the fish is obvious! I opted for the Grouper "Fulford"- cooked perfectly... More

A friend recommended the Blue Marlin and my husband and I are so glad we went! The ambience was nautical/classy and the service was relaxed and friendly. We had a great bottle of wine-Ramsey Cabernet Sauvignon (house wine which was not outrageously priced and great) and the Garlic Shrimp app which was delicious. My husband ordered the Grouper special with... More

Reservations are a must. Small but amazing. Greatly enjoyed the Grouper Fulford. Nice beer and wine selection. Friendly waitstaff.

We have always had great success with Tripadvisor, but honestly the Blue Marlin was a nice place and the food wasn't bad but it also wasn't great. We had far better fish at Arts & Eats in Bradenton. Nice place but unfortunately not nice enough to return.
