Believe the reviews, The Blue Marlin in Bradenton Beach is a delight for the taste buds.
These folks really know how to prepare food. Best grouper I have ever had. I like it blackened. Usually blackened covers up bad preparation. Not here. The spices were gentle and taste of the grouper was not masked. They use black grouper, which is the filet mignon of gulf grouper. Service was super friendly and attentive. Try the Flan for dessert.
As parking can be tough on Bridge Street, if you have a reservation, just drive up and you will be shown a parking spot and then brought back to the Blue Marlin by golf cart. You will also be returned to your car. Great in March when Bridge St. is is very busy.

We didn't have reservations, so we had to eat at the bar, which was ok. Bartender was personable and nice to talk to.

I don't normally eat fish, but had the Cobia, which, for a non fish eater, was pretty good. My wife had Grouper.

All in all, a good place for dinner.

We read all of the reviews and were not disappointed!! Fresh seafood nicely prepared. The concierge at our hotel said it was her favorite place I can see why. Friendly waitress, great service and an excellent meal. Lived up to it's billing!!!

This is a restaurant for people who know food and wine.

The fish is fresh and the dishes are simple and well prepared. The wines are carefully selected from little know vineyards that havent been cursed with Parker ratings.

The atmosphere is informal and charming and the service is excellent.

We visited this place on our last day of vacation, March 19,2013, and wish we had found it earlier.

Arrived early for our dinner reservation (don't go without making a reservation) so we enjoyed a drink while listening to the live music out back which was very enjoyable. Dinner was great and service was also very good. The waitress made to sure to save the last portion of pompano as soon as we ordered.Overall, a nice evening out.
