“Great Outdoor Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We didn't have reservations so we just took a seat at the tiki hut on the deck and enjoyed a couple of cocktails until a table opened up.

Great atmosphere/view.

Food was very good and the service was pretty good (not the best I ever had but certainly better than most).

Yummy! Definitely on the list of "i'll go back" joints i've been to.

“Excellent fare, lovely location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

For many years, we have dined at Captain Woody's right next to the Black Marlin... and this year on our trip to the island were found Captain Woody's replaced by a new venue- so, we finally tried the Black Marlin and were quite happy. We were a party of five, me, my husband, our 2 kids (10 and 12) and my mother. The service was good- which was really important as we were starving. I had a daily special- Shrimp and Grits. They were delicious. My husband and son had fried shrimp, and they were some of the best I've ever had (I managed to wrangle a sample out of them...barely.) We dined outside for our late lunch. The fans provided a nice breeze, and we could see out into the marina.

“Another great experience at Black Marlin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

My husband and I went to the Black Marlin for dinner last evening and was, as always, very pleased with our experience there. The food was great and our server, Jessie, was so friendly and attentive to our every need. Want more iced tea, Jessie was right there to provide it. Need more bread or condiments for your meal. Jessie took care of everything. We can't wait to go back for another visit to the Black Marlin.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Great seafood! Steamed shrimp the tenderest and tastiest I've ever eaten. Such marvelous service from server Ashley that we returned for a second meal in less than a week. Again a tasty, delicious meal and terrific, friendly service. Fried shrimp and sweet potato fries were the best ever. And the atmosphere of the outside dining experience is relaxing and enjoyable.

The outside dining was very inviting. String lights hung in the trees and no bugs around. Loved the calamari and chicken livers!
