“Very nice waterside dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Went for dinner on a cloudy day but it should be good for sunsets. Ordered outside and then due to the threat of rain were invited inside. Partner's oysters were larger than expected and good. I had 2 appetizers and no room for entree. We shared a key lime pie that we left half on the plate due to taste. Try a different dessert.

“Lunch with a Smile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We went to have out anniversary lunch at the outdoor Hurricane Bar adjacent to the Black Marlin Grill. We started out with the yummy lettuce wrapped chicken appetizer. Lots of flavor and lots of chicken. We then had the 2 for $10 lunch meals. My husband loved the gumbo and Cuban sandwich combo. I ordered the bayside chowder and a crab cake. I loved the chowder which was full of fresh tender seafood but the crab cake was a little dry. At the end of our meal, the friendly waitress surprised us with a complementary ice cream sundae to celebrate our day. So nice and unexpected. Overall, a lovely lunch, we look forward to visiting again next year and try the dinner menu.

“Good food and a fantstic Bloody Mary bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We had brunch which was great value and of very good quality

Very good servers and nice atmosphere very near the water

The Bloody Mary Bar is a great idea -- they bring you the glass with the ice and Vodka in it plus a cocktail shaker -- you then go to the bar and add your own pickles, spices and Tomato juice from a great selection

“Al Fresco Dining a Must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

A group of us went after a day at the beach and we were not disappointed! Great service and even better food. We dined outside on the patio but the fountain and it couldn't have been any better.

“Cool place, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This place just has a cool vibe. Every time we go to the Black Marlin we have a great time. The atmosphere is fun, the food is good, and the service is friendly. Our waitress Lissy was a complete gem. We are looking forward to coming back.
