Everything we ate was outstanding and a bit different! The shrimp and grits were amazing! The roasted sweet potato slices and sage brown butter potatoes were super yummy. The servings of corn bread were huge and delicious. Although we were stuffed we stuffed the tropical bread pudding into our mouths and totally enjoyed our dinner!!! There weren't many people outside... More

This dining experience was the best. Our appetizer was wonderful. It was steak with arugula and toast swimming in the most yummy of broths. The crusted Snapper was perfectly prepared served with black beans, rice, and a corn relish. My dining partner had the Shrimp Scampi which was equally as tasty with lobster, shrimp, and scallops. The server was attentive... More

Excellent pecan encrusted Grouper dinner. Table in back less desirable and somewhat claustrophobic. Good wine list. Service was good, but hey, it's Florida. So, you can't expect much. The hostess was amazingly cheerful and friendly. I would return.

Our server was the worst. Greeted us and then totally disappeared for a half hour. Finally took our drink orders only to bring us completely warm Stella's. When I asked could we please have cold beers he "promised" to put several on ice for us. Yeah that didn't happen. And you know if a beer has been placed in ice... More

We visited the Blue Marlin Grill around Easter. Table for 6 with a wide range of tastes and palates to please. Everyone was happy and agreed this was the culinary highlight of our tour de Florida '17. I had the Bang-Bang Scallops for my main course - perfectly cooked & presented - tasty, fresh and well spiced. Wine list was... More

Food excellent if somewhat pricey. All courses tasty and beautifully presented. Waiter very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended for a special night out. Being able to book a table online is great, a real bonus.

No cocktails, just wine and beer, but wine list is carefully chosen and inexpensive for what you get. Everything about this place was great - service, appetizers, entree's (fresh snapper was one of the best we've every had). Sit outside and enjoy some light music with dinner. Cute little patio does not hold many diners, but has a nice laid... More

On a busy day in Bradenton we were able to get a table sitting outside in a reasonable amount of time. The outdoor area is open, live music playing is a nice touch. Service was prompt and attentive. Drinks and food were very good - the catch of the day is fresh and worth it. Although it may be a... More
