After seeing that the Black Marlin has been highly reviewed recently on TripAdvisor, we went to the restaurant's own website to check out the menu. My husband found a steak with extras that he likes, and I found a seafood sandwich that sounded good. When we went there and were seated (no wait at 7pm--lucky), we noticed that the menu... More

Eat outside and watch the boats go by and have THE BEST Happy Hour ever. The shrimp tacos are in homemade tortillas the shrimp is fresh,crispy and perfectly cooked. The calamari is so good, the tuna nachos are a real delight. And they are DOG friendly. What more can one want?

The seafood is very good. It is the first time I have ever seen fish offered with a choice of 5 different preparations, all priced the same and all sounded delicious. The one I picked was great and the three others I dined with felt the same.

This was my first visit to the Black Marlin, but I'm sure I'll be back! I had heard good things about this restaurant, and finally made it a point to visit. I waited about 45 minutes for an outdoor table. The food was incredible. I had the stuffed crispy chicken (stuffed with prosciutto, asiago, and basil), au gratin potatoes, and... More

Check out their menu either online or when you're having one of their 57 varieties of exotic drinks, and you'll discover a suite of offerings that far surpass most of the establishments around Hilton Head. That drink should help you to make a decision, which is often complicated by wondering about what kinds of fresh fish were caught that day... More

We went with a group of 8 so it took us awhile to be seated but well worth the wait. Friendly service and although the food didn't all arrive at exactly the same time it was all hot and nicely presented. An enjoyable Sunday brunch!

A wonderful evening that started with the gracious hostess who went out oher way on a very busy night to help get us seated and from then on it just got better. We decided to try the Early Bird Menu and it proved a great choice. I started with the Chicken Gumbo Soup my partner Caesar Salad both were excellent,... More

We have been going to Hilton Head Island for years and somehow missed this wonderful eating place. The ambiance was just right for Hilton Head and the service was attentive and the food was excellent. What else could we ask for? Not much!

My wife loves this place. The food is always very good, prices resonable, and service great. Snowbirds & locals know about Sergs winter passport. A coupon book with 2 for 1 coupons to all their places. Good from Dec to end of Feb. Pick one up and enjoy.
