we have just returned from an impromptu meal at The Blue Marlin...........WOW! The food was amazing! Freshly cooked local seafood....what could be better. We loved the ambience of the historical building. Food, wine and service were first class. We loved it so much, we have booked to return for their blue grass evening in 2 days time. We feel like...

Stopped in to have an early dinner and enjoyed a real nice piece of char grilled Cobia with a tasty corn crab chowder and salad. I was delighted at our seating ... we sat outdoors with perfect dining weather. The waitress was friendly and on time with assistance. I think this place was charming with good food and good service.... More

The food here is absolutely fantastic. We wanted to go when we first arrived, which was on a Sunday. We asked a police officer where it was & his first words were "Oh, they serve great food there." Unfortunetly, they were closed but when my husband heard that recommendation from a local, he made sure we tried it the next... More

Did not enjoy this place. Atmosphere is good. Our waitress was not friendly. My friend's food was cold and rare and had to be sent back. Manager deducted it from our bill. As we left, he came down the street after us offering us 2 free drink coupons. For the price, there's a lot better places to go in the... More

This is a great restaurant. Attentive friendly staff and great food . There is a small bar where you can eat or have a drink before your meal. The wine list is interesting and the fish is delicious! Well worth a visit.

walked in on a Monday before thanksgiving. Service was quick but there was no pressure to order. I had the seafood pot and it was excellent. My wife had the snapper and she raved about it. My son had the fish sandwich and hated it. Had the bread pudding for desert and it was very good. Because my son did... More

Made reservations for two for a special birthday based on reviews. We were seated, ordered a bottle of wine, appetizer, dinner and dessert...and were handed the bill...and left... in less than an hour. While the food was good we felt that paying $165.00 for a rushed meal that was supposed to be special was a major disappointment. We won't be... More

First of all, parking was difficult to find on a Friday evening. That's Bridge Street for you. Inside, the atmosphere was casual and comfortable. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The entrees come in two sizes. Three of us ordered the regular portions, which were sufficiently large. I ordered the large portion of shrimp and grits, which didn't seem... More

We were in Bradenton to celebrate a good friend's birthday and when visiting Anne Marie let a friend back in UK know that we were there. He immediately told us to go to Blue Marlin Grill for dinner. Our friends in Bradenton didn't know it but we booked anyway. I drove around for a while trying to park and eventually... More
