Great dining experience

Had a nice dinner outside. Our waiter was great and recommend delicious entrees. We had the GLT (Grouper, lettuce, tomato) sandwich and shrimp & grits. Everything was outstanding. We will definitely be back.

Visited the Blue Marlin Grill on our first trip to AMI. Was very impresses end - fish was very fresh, ambience was casual and a bit quirky, and servic was excellent. Portion size was perfect (not oversized). Highly recommended.

While this was our first time visiting Anna Maria Island and staying at Cedar Cove Resorts we had no idea where to eat. A patron on the sidewalk suggested to go to Blue Marlin. I am sooo glad he did! Was just fantastic! We sat outside on a nice night and listened to a guy on the guitar playing along... More

After a weary and long day of travelling we were lucky enough to stumble upon the Blue Marlin Grill. Everything from start to finish was exceptional. It was such a great experience we decided to do a repeat performance on our last night. My mouth is beginning to water just thinking about the food at the Blue Marlin. This is... More

This restaurant is in the historic area of Bradenton Beach. Food is outstanding, service excellent, and it has a neat ambiance. Try the Grouper Pasta. Just outstanding. Shrimp entrees are excellent. We had ten people in our party and everyone had a different entrée. All were excellent. I have dined here several times and every one was a pleasure. Prices... More

The history here is on the walls, floors and in the service and food. One of the few places that really still buys fish daily in Cortez and you can tell. Not the cheapest place to eat but one of the best.

Spent a week in the area and found this quaint upscale restaurant in our wanderings. Reservations recomended. Florida and fresh seafood daily from a fishing village 15 minutes away. There were four of us and we all selected different entres. The freshness of the fish shined through. I personally had the Grouper which was outstanding and genuine. A reasonably priced... More

My husband and I definitely love this little place. We've been coming since they opened a few years ago and they keep getting better. We ate outside in their courtyard this time. I had the blackened grouper Alfredo. Wow! Couldn't finish it all. My husband had the Cortez seafood chowder. He's a soup guy and says this beats all others.... More
