We enjoy the catfish especially; it is one of the few places in the area that doesn't overcook its fish. The French Fires are like fresh-cut and delicious. We are looking forward to the Locals Specials, now that the Season is waning.

We will definitely go back! We went because we were in the mood for wings and we passed by and saw a sign out front about .49 wings and $1.00 beer. We arrived inside and we were told that is a weekend special. :( But thanks to our wonderful server Toni she got the special approved! The only thing I wish they had are more flavors of wings. We were very happy with our service and will definitely be going back but this time on the right day for the special.

We enjoyed our first dining experience at the Blue Marlin. The food was very good, reasonably priced and Toni did a great job serving us! We'll be back! Marge and Ted

When we entered the restaurant our party of four was met with confusion as there was a line of people trying to pay their checks and a definite lack of staff to accommodate them and arriving guests. Finally got seated. Service was less than adequate as drinks and hush puppies were slow in coming so much so we had to physically hunt down our service staff to inquire about the promised hush puppies. Had to ask for refills on $1.99 sodas and teas. Food was good: fried shrimp had a nice light batter on small sized shrimp and ribs were nicely done. Only received one napkin with a rib dinner. When the bill came, two of the four diners had been overcharged. We came once when it was the Lucky Fisherman and the same can be said for the Blue Marlin.

Went there for dinner with my wife and son. Was seated by the hostess and after sitting there for 10 minutes without a waitress coming to our table, we got up and left. They were not busy at the time and we watched the wait staff standing around talking and laughing. Poor, poor service.

I would first like to extend my apologies to you. I was immediately told about the situation and have terminated the waitress that was working that day. I hope that you would give us a second chance and bring your family back in for an evening here at The Blue Marlin. Thank you, Sue
