“Best on Island”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Not inexpensive but worth every penny for the great atmosphere, attentive owner and of course, the superb food. Innovative delicious dishes. Oyster special was to die for. Lobster dish delicious. Charming outside deck with great live music made waiting for our table a real treat.

“Good way to spend a rainy night”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

This was our first visit to Blue Marlin Grill and we had a great meal. We decided to sit on the patio despite the threat of rain and the management was willing to seat us inside when necessary. We all had the grouper, which was perfectly cooked. My daughter has Celiac disease and must follow a gluten free diet. The server was knowledgeable about our needs and the menu indicates what items are gluten free. The wine list is eclectic and the bartender asked about my wine preferences and steered me towards something I wouldn't have picked on my own, but was delicious. A great place on Bridge Street!

“Great Meal”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Excellent food (particularly the seafood) that was relatively reasonably priced. We also went to Beach Bistro, which was also very good, but twice as expensive and definitely not twice as good. Blue Marlin was laid back but every dish we tried was extremely tasty. Will definitely return on our next trip to AMI.

“Mediocre at best and expensive and we tried it twice.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We dined at this charming restaurant last year and just loved it but after 2 visits this March we were bitterly disappointed with the quality of the food. The restaurant itself is terrific and the owner very attentive but the food was subpar and pricey. I hate to say this but unless you want a big check for bad food avoid this place, I wish we had.

“We had a great night”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We went there on a Saturday night and only tables outside were left which we did not like but when we saw that they were under a roof, it was okay (it was drizzling a little). There was this great blues band playing and we also had some quite good food so we had a great night until curfew at 10 pm. The only complaint could be that our waitress was really struggling so she put on her "infinity" gaze and did not see that we were trying to order another couple of drinks. Highly recommended place in a very quiet area.
