I recently went with my husband and in-laws. The food was delicious (BBQ scallop, mussels, and pasta) I would say my one complaint is that they don't have a full bar. They had an ok wine selection but a couple of us would have loved having martinis or after dinner liqueurs. Overall it was delicious and a well appointed restaurant.

I'm always in Longboat Key and looking for new and good restaurants. I found it! I walked by this cute and coastal looking front and checked out the menu. I returned with my very young and cool sister; she may be reading this. The young owner greeted us and was friendly, funny, accommodating and patient as we decided to eat... More

This place got great reviews on TA so we decided to give it a shot. The food was excatly as described. I had the grouper and it was fresh and prepared very well. I do agree that the hushpuppies should be part of the dinner and really should be given out in place of that edameme stuff. Seriously, I know... More

Came here with a group of friends for dinner. Great food and nice casual atmosphere. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits!

Very real fresh food. Thank-you to the people who opened this place, don't change a thing and if your reading this...go eat there, you just can't go wrong. Even the side dishes are surprisingly good.

We have been to the Blue Marlin in the past and enjoyed sitting outside for the entertainment. Same this time, but the food was not nearly as good. When my husband tells me I could make better at home, that means it's not up to $29 an entree. I have no qualms dropping $29 an entree for a great dish.... More

went to this restaurant on trip advisor recommendations, but was disappointed, I found the food a little bland and over cooked, also the young lady serving had very little knowledge about the food and couldn't answer some basic questions, she did offer to go and find out but never came back with the answer! On a positive note the group... More

If you're looking for amazing food and a good time on bridge street... Look no further! One of the best places to dine in Bradenton Beach. Everything is always fresh and cooked perfectly. You have to try their house salad along with your meal. You're welcome :)

Wish we had tried this restaurant early on during our holiday instead of leaving it until the last few days as I'm sure we would have gone back time and time again. All 4 of us thought our meal was the best one of our holiday. The atmosphere, service and food was all excellent and my one tip would be... More

Excellent seafood and a very knowledgeable, efficient staff makes this a "must" for visitors to Florida's Gulf coast.
