I was treated to a Wonderful Meal on Mother's Day at the Blue Marlin. I chose the Flounder Special..it was great, Service was Fabulous, very welcoming. I would recommend to anyone that is ever in the Southport/Oak Island area to try to make it a point to make it to the Blue Marlin. You will not be disappointed!!!

We dined at the Blue Marlin Restaurant last night. My husband had crab legs and I had steak.
The food was delicious.Our waitress was courteous and cheerful. We will definitely return when in the area.

So you're in town on vacation and have spent the day at the beach and now you are starving and are in the mood for some good seafood. You load-up the family and friends and head-out looking for this place you saw on the way in to town with the big fish on the sign, it must be good, right? They have a big fish on the sign! Save yourself some time, money, and lots of frustration, this is not the seafood restaurant you had imagined. The food is bland, if it's even hot, and while it's certainly not local seafood, most places around here don't serve that anyway. The breakfast is OK, if you like diner food, works great for hangovers. Actually, the dinner isn't that bad either if you are drunk. Keep driving, there are better places in Southport, and Oak Island too, this is the bottom of the barrel, so no matter how enticing that big sign looks, keep driving, otherwise don't say I didn't warn you.
