One of our favorites. No frills, family owned business. Everything is wonderful. Peach cobbler is the best.

Came here to try something new and we weren't disappointed. Food was excellent, our server, Cindy, was friendly and helpful. Overall a fantastic experience and will definitely come again. The cobia was awesome and a more than generous portion.

Everybory in the South has Fried Green Tomtoes but Blue Marlin has good ones. If you are hungary their fried whole flounder is definenlty a take home box meal.
