Perfect meal every time

Last night was our third visit to Blue Marlin and once again, it did not disappoint. The service is spectacular and the waiter once again was so knowledgeable and informative about both the food and the wine. This was a first visit for my very picky 13 year old and even he was impressed!

Service was super slow- and disorganized. Waiter very friendly but took over an hour to get our food and 3 of 4 dishes came out. clams linguini was great. Scallop Shrimp pasta was great too. Grouper was dried out and disappointing. Especially since advertised as "fresh". Good music on weekends.

Followed the recommendation of an island local to make a reservation. Glad we did! Within 10 minutes of being seated, the wait was 45 minutes for walk-ins. Quaint setting surrounded by the bay and the gulf. However, inside seating is very limited. There is outside seating available but that was limited due to the rain storms. Our friendly server provided... More

What a great decision trying this restaurant for a late dinner. My wife and I both had the Black Grouper, Fulford style with green beans and Black eyed Peas & Rice. I got an additional side of roasted Brussell Sprouts & potatoes with bacon, and we had a 2010 High Flying Centerline Red wine to go with it. This was... More

Tripadvisor steered us to this adorable seafood cottage, and it really is a cut-above. It's a casual restaurant with a sophisticated vibe that you would expect in a larger and hipper city. Started our meal with a crisp order or edamame, perfectly steamed and salty. The Spanish white was a gem on the wine list, and others in our group... More

The food was literally amazing, scalopps, redsnapper, crazyyy!!! Not to be talking about the waiters who are all so charming and the restaurant which is situated on the beautiful historic fishing bridge. You absolutely need to come and try this place out, sincerely.

A very distinctive place with a very good menu, nice surroundings and very good food and service, well worth a visit if you are on the island.

We had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service is excellent and the food couldn't be better. We were told it was the best place for fish and they were correct. We will go again. Next time we hope the weather is dry so as we can sit outside and listen to great music.
