My husband and I had a great dinner and outstanding service at the Blue Marlin Grill. We would definitely go back and have already recommended it to family that is staying in Bradenton Beach. Try the cornbread!

Blue Marlin Grill has to be one of the best, if not the best sea food restaurant we have dined at in years. Truly food prepared properly producing a taste from the ocean. Such a pleasure to have options for non fried / battered meal.
