“Worth the Wait”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We've been to the Black Marlin twice. The food is great! Servers are very polite, fun, and knowledgeable about the menu. We will definetly go back. If you're starving, have a snack before you leave because there is a pretty long wait, usually.

“Great Food Matched by Service”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I went out to celebrate her birthday. we decided to go to the Black Marlin. The food was excellent and the service provided by Will, our server, was attentive and first rate in every respect. Although, the restaurant was entertaining a large group in the bar, it had no effect on the timeliness of our service. We will be back soon and ask for one of Will's tables.

“Top seafood meal!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Black Marlin was excellent! One of the top 3 seafood meals I've had. The fish was fresh and moist. Great kids menu. Service was great! Free parking. A must when on HHI.

“Great Dinner”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Our group found this restaurant and discovered that in January they have an early bird dinner plus a coupon book for discount. Even without these choices we would have enjoyed this property. Plus happy hour at the bar with $2 off bar drinks.

It was cold and rainy so being outdoors was not an option but they had a wonderful bar and seating area for warmer weather which would be great called the Hurricane Bar.

Staff was accommodating and professional, food was very good and we enjoyed our experience very much. Since I am not especially fond of sea food and my group was, I wondered if the beef would be satisfactory. I had a taste for the sirloin steak which was very tasty with a fresh baked potato and vegetable. Not disappointed. The Crab Cakes were not a hit with another friend, so can't recommend them.

Great setting with a varied menu for everyone.

“Early Bird”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Always have a very good meal there. Their early bird menu is very good with several good choices. The price is good and we have their VIP booklet that gives an additional 50% off your second meal (January and February only). How can you go wrong! It includes a soft drink, soup or salad and entree.
