“Outside Vibe is Great”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We went to Black Marlin to enjoy the Hurricane Bar and then a great meal. As always, the outside vibe was wonderful. We sat on the couches and enjoyed some happy hour appetizers and our favorites….the hurricane drinks. There was an approaching storm so we decided to eat inside so as not to be caught out in the rain. Unfortunately the temperature inside the restaurant was extremely warm. After ordering great mojitos off the drink specials I had to walk out of the restaurant to cool off, not an easy task in July in HHI. Unfortunately the heat inside the restaurant tainted my view of the food, although the little I did eat was delicious. The entrees ordered included stuffed shrimp and shrimp and grits, two wonderful dishes. I only wish they could have been enjoyed.

Overall a great vibe with a great menu. Hopefully our next visit will be much cooler!

“Mediocre”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Long wait time for an average to mediocre meal. The service was just OK. The temperature in the restaurant was very hot. When we asked about it, we were told that it was due to the doors opening and closing. We won't be going back.

Last night we went to Black Marlin for Happy Hour with friends in from out of town. We sat at the hurricane bar and had margaritas and sushi nachos! Fantastic!

“Very Accommodating!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We came to the Black Marlin for the Early Bird dining. We had a little trouble finding the restaurant, so we got to the hostess stand at the latest time for the Early Bird, and there was a wait for a table. They were very accommodating and told us that we could still take advantage of the special when we get seated. The waitress was attentive and the food was good. We will definitely return!
