I love Blue Marlin - truly one of my favorite places to eat in Downtown Columbia. The atmosphere is great with its dark wood ceilings and booths. The bar area is quite ecelectic looking. It has the feeling of an upscale 1920's restaurant, like you expect to see fine gentlemen in the corner smoking cigars.
The staff wear white button up shirts and neckties with black pants - classy.
The food is always so good. Their grits are amazing - stone ground. Try the shrimp and grits - a SC favorite. You also receive complementary collards, which are so good, you don't even need seasoning. The bread is made there in a small loaf and so good - and I'm not even a bread person. They make an EXCELLENT martini!
All in all, good food, great atmosphere - I'm never dissappointed at the Blue Marlin.
