We arrived when the restaurant was very busy, but staff pitched in to make us feel welcome. We opted for patio seating, which was very pleasant, and our server, Ashley, was a delight from start to finish. Our food was excellent. The menu offered so many enticing options I had difficulty choosing, but my Cajun grilled scallops with spicey fruit,... More

We are new to the area and had never been to the black marlin before, well it turned out to be wonderful. We walked in and were sat immediately, our server devin introduced us to fantastic stuffed shrimp and caramel cake, and also got a passport. New member excited about amazing discounts!

Three of us dined here. I had the melt-in-your-mouth delicious Frangelico and walnut scallops. Friends raved about the prime rib. Reasonable prices; delicious food and our server, Marie, was the perfect hostess for the evening! Even found a new wine that we really enjoyed.

We are always delighted with... More

It had several years since I last reviewed the Black Marlin. We went on a Friday night and I regretted not making reservations. It was 45 minutes before a table was ready. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer. It had a nice coating that was not very greasy. The dipping sauce was complimentary to the calamari. My wife ordered... More

Decided to try this restaurant for lunch and so glad we did! Our wait-person, Brett, was awesome! We continued to brag about him to friends that came in later in our stay. So helpful! I asked about what was up with the Frogmore Stew-Pho ( a kind of "build your own flavors")and he explained it had an Asian twist! I... More

We just stopped in on a hunch and were glad we did. My friend had the scallops with bean and rice and veggies and said everything was cooked to perfection. I had the flounder sandwich with the most divine sweet potato waffle fries. Prices were extremely reasonable and needless to say, the food was excellent. We would definitely go back... More

I took my mother to brunch while she was visiting and the food was AMAZING. I had the Sushi Bowl Salad, I was a little nervous about it, but once I laid eyes on it, it was EXACTLY what I had wanted!! It was just amazing. My Mom got the Shrimp Hash, with large, local shrimp and perfectly poached eggs,... More
