Was attending the Rita Rudner show at the Lyric Theatre this past Friday. Thought we would try the Black Marlin for a pre show dinner. Since the show was at 8:30, thought I would call and make a reservation for 6:30. Called and the Bartender/manager answered the phone and informed me no reservation would be necessary around that time. While... More

Tried this place on suggestion of my cousin in Boynton- holy WOW! I had the shrimp & crab fusilli. I have never tasted such a creamy and hearty sauce in my life! Mom had the filet mignon- so wonderful! Came with grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes. Our server was so friendly, too!

The Black Marlin is a great local spot for drinks and/or a meal. The staff is great and the food is consistently good. It is an atmosphere for adults however I have seen families there. The space is small and intimate.

This restaurant has been in downtown Stuart for ages, and has always had a loyal bar clientele. Comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, good food and a wait staff that loves to work there, they take pride in their service.

Good food and good service. A must go to place. Good for families, too. We go there before we see a live show at the Lyric Theater. Always get us out on time, too.

Whether eating at the bar or at a table, you get very good food. The Black Marlin Salad is huge (big enough for 4 to share).

Located downtown, the Black Marlin is a great place for a drink or dinner. The bar area is always busy and fun. The menu is on the small side but does have daily specials. The servers are all very attentive and knowledgable - top notch. The bread they serve is to die for! Their salmon dishes are very good as... More

The Black Marlin in downtown Stuart is a find for me even though I have been in the area for about 10 years.. It's easy to walk by in downtown without noticing. Inside it is a woodsy small place, nice long bar, and comfy atmosphere. My second time here. Prices off regular menu are reasonable and the food is well... More
