Description: Great cozy little Bar and restaurant located in the center of historic Downtown Stuart. Happy hour that includes 2 for 1s on wine and drinks as well as appetizers as low as $6 from 4:00pm-6:00pm daily. Known for our professional staff, great meal options, and well made cocktails, this is the perfect place to come for a great experience in Downtown Stuart.

We stopped for a drink and did not even want a menu. We sat at the bar and saw the appetizer menu and ended up getting a snail dish with puff pastry and a conch dish. Very unique and quite good.

everyone knows the Black Marlin.....it been around for many years and there's a reason why, it's a locals favorite! The small but adequate space is filled with happy people every night of the week. The bar is small and cozy as are the tables and booths, the atmosphere tends to feel like a private party rather than a restaurant. Service is always excellent and the menu consists of regular items (proven favorites) and specials that reflect fresh local seafood availability. Located in quaint downtown Stuart, just a short walk from the waterfront if you come by boat. If you want to experience what the locals know as tried and true, trust me this place will not disappoint....

Food is very good, prices can be a bit staggering at times. It is a great place for fish in Stuart. Atmosphere is good, wait staff are attentive and well trained

There is no sign outside this place. Only a large fish hanging overhead. It's a secret restaurant geared toward the locals. They do no advertising, yet this cozy establishment is usually crowded. Why? The food is very good and reasonably priced and the service is excellent! The dark wood and subdued furnishings follow the decor of the other restaurants owned by this restauranteur: The Prawnbroker; Shrimpers and the Palm City Grill.
Last night, we ate at the bar and Mike, the bartender, was attentive and affable. The drinks were excellent although they need to expand the wine list to include some European offerings in the reds.
I had the char-grilled salmon with a wonderful glaze and my companions had the hog snapper which they said was excellent as well. Overall, a great dining experience in a friendly atmosphere.

This ss a very small place so you are better off trying to go at an off time. We try to go around 5:30 to have dinner and the place usually fills up while we are there. They have a wonderful Black Marlin salad and the small hand made pizzas are fantastic. A nice little intimate place for dinner. Can get loud though when the bar crowd shows up.
