We have long been fans of the Serg group restaurants in the Hilton Head area. One we hadn't tried was Black Marlin. No surprise. Great seafood, great service and a great location. Highly recommended.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there and were not disappointed! The food was great, especially the seafood chowder. The wait staff was prompt and helpful. I would return to this restaurant again.

Went during happy hour and stayed for dinner. All four of us had seafood. We all enjoyed our meals. The sea scallops were delicious.

Decided to try this place based off the reviews. It’s not in the greatest location on Hilton Head – a little view of the waters. We each enjoyed the seafood chowder, then we had a small house salad and calamari. And although the calamari is...More

We had a very pleasant Friday night dinner on the patio at the Black Marlin. There was live music and the band performing was great. The volume was just right - not so loud that it precluded conversation, but loud enough to be fun and...More

This is a lovely place to dine outside. The food is good, but completely forgettable, and that's a shame. Some items, like a Caesar salad, should have been easy wins, but instead were not much better than what you pour out of a bag purchased...More
