We sat at the bar and still had a great experience

In spite of the cost of the meals at this restaurant, it was crowded and we did not have a reservation so we sat at the bar. The waiter knew the menu well, asked the kitchen's advice about possible allergens in the sauces, etc. He recommended the right beer to accompany the food (most waiters are... read more

Good spot on Bridge St. in Bradenton Beach. make a reservation if you can, and ask where to park as there are few spots on the street. The restaurant has a golf cart to pick you up if you have to park down Church St. at the Church. We came for a late lunch to meet friends. Good food, that... More

We ate at Blue Marlin based upon both personal recommendations and trip advisor reviews. My meal of pecan crusted snapper was a winner, with side dishes of candied sweet potato and green beans as good as the perfectly cooked, fresh seafood. My husband's meal was somewhat less successful due to slightly overcooked shrimp, with rich, tasty grits. Wine was expensive,... More

Name has nothing to do with the infamous Blue Marlin fish or the big tourney we have in OC MD but named after owner's son who likes to fish.... Menu is limited to seafood except for one chicken dish ...scallops and lobster over pasta was terrific and large portion. Bartender was friendly and offered recommendations on several wines....bar only seats... More

We've been to the Blue Marlin a half-dozen times and it has become our favorite island restaurant. Reason? The food is exceptional. Too many of the joints up and down Anna Maria serve food that is just keep-the-tourists-happy passable. When you book a reservation at the Blue Marlin--and you really need to, because there's not a lot of seating--you can... More

Probably the best grouper meal we've had in 15 restaurants in Florida. A bit difficult to get to but an interesting old building and the very neat and quaint village so worth the drive and you'll enjoy your meal

Definitely not value for money. Fish well cooked but rather salty. Would not return! Prices are for high quality food which it wasnt. Having eaten at many Michelin starred restaurants this really didn't come up scratch.
