Fun place... Even better service.

This restaurant has a fun vibe, good food, and our server Lissy went above and beyond with a bright cheerful smile. We are looking forward to the next time we get to head down to the marina for another good visit. You have to start off with the sushi nachos. Unbelievably good!!!

We had a great time ! Food was good, and our server, Lissy was awesome ! The atmosphere was great and we ended up eating there three more times that week. If you go, ask to be served by Lissy.

Just had the best and largest lunch ever!!! Even better then the food was the way we were treated from the second that we arrived--lets call it pampered. Beautiful young lady waited on our table and was fun, funny and full of useful island info--just ask for Lissy, you won't be sorry

Have been here before, maybe they had a bad night, it just wasnt worth the money. Have been to all the Serg Group places on many occasions. This, by far, was the worst experience. The upside was i did see my man, anthony, he's doing well. I guess next time i'll bite the bullet and go to boathouse to see... More

We have eaten at many restaurants on the island but the one we continue to go back to is The Black Marlin. The Jumbo Sea Scallops are outstanding. Steaks are hand cut and served with a BAKED POTATO not mashed. Their Caesar Salad is delicious. Our server Lissy was great! For a casual relaxing dinner try Black Marlin. Located at... More

The Black Marlin was referred to us by several locals in the Hilton Head Island area. The food and service was good. They offer different type of boil pots. My husband and I shared a lobster boil pot and my daughter ordered a clam/shrimp boil pot. The lobster was a good size with plenty of lobster meat for the two... More

A tourist and locals favorite. Black Marlin has the best Happy Hour on Hilton Head--for prices and selection. And Lissy Rawl is one of the happiest waitresses!

We ate at The Black Marlin Bayside Grill while on vacation in Hilton Head Island. The menu offers a broad selection. The prices are a little on the steep side but the food is very good. We sat outside at a table. The flies were very bad but the resteraunt had done everything they could to try to keep them... More
