Taking into account previous reviews we were disappointed. The garlic shrimps were fantastic but let down by the portion of toast, my wife's meal was served without the accompanying rice and peas, something that in an excellent restaurant should not get missed. The food though was excellent hence the rating of four - attention to detail would have achieved a... More

Took a friend for birthday dinner. We were greeted with a complementary glass of champagne and given the best table. The scallops melted in our mouths. The grouper was fresh that morning and cooked perfectly. The risotto was warm and creamy. The walls are decorated with family photos of fishing trips. The restaurant is charming and the food delicious. This... More

Went here for a special occasion. Food was outstanding, a little pricey for the portion size, but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service was good. Loved the outside seating area and live entertainment. I would definitely go back.

I can't say much that has not been said in other reviews. However, if you have the opportunity to eat here don't hesitate-just do it. Wonderful fresh seafood. Friendly staff, great service, and great food.

We enjoyed a great dinner at the Blue Marlin Grill last night. Our server, Michael, was very friendly, informative and prompt, the food was excellent. A little off the beaten path, Blue Marlin Grill uses fresh catch from the nearby Cortez fishing village. The quality is excellent.

This is a small casual place down the street from the beach. Two couples enjoyed a good bottle of wine and fresh seafood. My husband said it was the best linguine and clam sauce that he has ever had - and he orders it often because I do not make it at home. We will go back!

This is a wonderful seafood restaurant. When we visited, our table wasn't ready so the manager bought us drinks and appetizers while we listened to a live band. The food was delicious and fish fresh.

Was walking by and heard some good live music on the patio area. We were all thirsty and decided to stop in for a bite to eat and a drink. Had a great server, I believe his name was Bryan. He gave us great recommendations on the menu and made it an enjoyable evening for us all. We sampled the... More

What can I say but perfection…The service & the food was excellent. What sets the Blue Marlin apart from other establishments is the atmosphere, food, drink and most of all the service. We had a small child with us, we called ahead to make sure it was conducive for a toddler and all was good to go. The minute we... More

Had a delicious meal here. No tables available inside so we sat at the bar. Kelsey the server was very helpful, suggested a good wine and explained the menu choices well. The key lime creme brûlée was to die for!
