Exquisite cuisine, very original interior and very attentive staff

Almost everything was perfect. The first evening they were booked out, so we reserved for the next evening and didn't regret it. My Fulford Grouper was excellent, as we're the tenderloins with garlic (ajillo), which my wife had. Every waiter was very patient and attentive. The fried green tomato... read more

I have reviewed this place before several years ago and while I liked the food I didn't like the presentation and was a little critical. WELL, my second visit was a completely different experience. First of all, we sat outside and LOVED it. Our waiter was fantastic. Super nice and helpful. There were three of us and with the exception... More

Our two families of four sat outside at the Blue Marlin tonight. When we got there the weather was still good but by the time we placed our order it was raining. Our seats weren't completely under cover, so we had to improvise and put the kids at another table to avoid the rainwater dripping off of the rooftop. The... More

We had 9 for dinner, with 5 children. Service was solid. The decor and atmosphere were well done. I had potato crusted snapper, it was very easy to eat and not fishy at all. My wife had grouper for the first time and loved it. Everyone was happy with their meals. This is a place we will go back to... More

It had great service and our food got there within 15 minutes, but everyone disliked their meal. I got crab and it tasted disgusting and there was very little meat.

Be sure while you are on Bradenton Beach/ Bridge Street to eat at this fine restaurant! The building takes you back in time in the rustic blue house with a great outside dining experience in the Trap Yard. Everything you order is out of this world! Freshest seafood around, you can see pictures of the fresh catch on FB from... More

Loved the Blue Marlin. We were searching for a place to eat and made a last minute reservation on Open Table--got the last 7:45 seating for 2. We had our first good meal of our trip here. The waiter recommended if we were interested in the hogfish, he'd reserve one of the last remaining for us. Did he say hogfish??... More
