After using tripadvisor for years I am finally writing my first review because I have been that impressed with the Blue Marlin Grill! My family has dined here 3 times over 2 vacations. All amazing experiences with consistent service. Very accommodating for our family & 2 year old daughter... they bring her goldfish as soon as we are seated. The... More

Shame. Great food. Really great. And good service. Not amazing but good. All spoiled by the behaviour of our waiter. We were at the restaurant as a treat to our friends who are hosting us on Ana Maria Island. The meal had been great. The bill arrived with an add on of 12% which we mistakenly thought was Service. We... More

We arrived here with no reservations and was able to snag a table outside on Nov 18th. Our Server was very attentive and the food was very good! I had the pecan encrusted grouper which was excellent! A band started to play outside and was an enjoyable atmosphere. Restaurant is unassuming but food was first rate!

Great smaller restaurant featuring great sea food, craft beers and other delicious appetizers and desserts. Cozy environment! We had an excellent conversation with 3 other couples who were dining near our table. The wait staff is very attentive. This was especially important since my wife has a dairy allergy among several other food related issues. The chef was completely understanding... More

We arrived about 6 PM without reservations. The host offered to show us the Chef's table if we would be interested. It's a small table just at the end of the bar right by the kitchen and the servers station. It's a bustling area away from most other diners, but every server paid close attention to our needs. It was... More

This restaurant is quaint, with outdoor seating and an intimate atmosphere. They have live music on weekends as well. The service is amazing; the servers and staff are so nice. The food is excellent! We've gone there many times and you can't go wrong with the specials. Last time we were there, the special was (huge) shrimp stuffed with stone... More

We've been on the island for a few days now and experienced some very lovely meals and not been disappointed once, in fact we've been thrilled everywhere we have been. We wanted to come here as the place looked so quirky and with the live singer thought we would be in for a treat, we just wish we had checked... More

Filet cooked to perfection. Try the outdoor seating for dinner. Live quality music didn't overpower conversation.
