“slow!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

There was probably 20 of us for a brunch. The food was average. My niece didn't like her choice. The small water view from the deck was quite disappointing. The service was slow, and the two servers found it extremely difficult to hand out each check to the appropriate customer. It took nearly 30 mins to receive my check. It was a small simple task, as I dine in large groups frequently.

“Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

No trip to HHI would be complete without a trip to the Black Marlin for brunch. The menu is full of delicious brunch treats. My favorite is the eggs benidict with a side of white cheddar hash browns.

Get there early as the patio fills up quick on a nice day.

“Decent meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We went here because it was recommended by the front desk clerk at the Marriott Resort and by my brother. My brother called the owner to make sure she was there before we went. The owner told us to ask for her when we showed up. We were seated outside which was pretty nice and the owner sent over some sushi nachos that were pretty good and unexpected and at the end of dinner she sent over a chocolate lava cake. My wife had the fried tilapia because they did not have fried catfish and I had the fried ultimate combo. The wife said her dish was good but it was not fried catfish. My combo was good and was A LOT of food. The only thing I did not like was the flounder. It did not seem to have any flavor but everything else did. This place is not cheap. They allow animals in the out door eating area which I am not used to but I assume this is a common thing on the island b/c this was not the only place this happened and no one else seemed to mind. They brought the dog some water. This restaurant is tucked away so make sure you have a GPS if you are not from the area. The service was good and the owner came over multiple times to make sure things were ok and she did that with all of the other tables which was good to see.
