We stopped by the Black Marlin for lunch one day. The shrimp quesadillas were wonderful! Also the flatbread. Service was excellent and the views were okay.

The Black Marlin is located right next to my son's apartment. Our server Steven was very friendly and attentive to our needs. We were a party of 5 and without even asking put in the child's meal first. He must know happy child happy adults. Steven made suggestion when asked and didn't disappoint. We had a wonderful meal. The mussel... More

8 of us, each one had a delicious meal. Sirloin, twin filets Oscar, seafood Alfredo, chowdah, fish, king crab and corned beef and cabbage.. Such great service from Stephen and enjoyed the food that we returned the next night. Again food was excellent and service by Stephen was outstanding. Have recommended this restaurant to everyone at the hot tub!

We started our visit with a wonderful greeting from Shelia. She was very warm and welcoming. We sat outside and had a nice view of the water. Our lunch was started with seafood chowder..on sale for only $1 with our entrée. This was the best seafood chowder I have had in years. We also had the lunch quiche feature which... More

Great seafood chowder, and Bloody Mary's, didn't know it could be so nice on the patio . Both had tacos, one shrimp and one fish, they were great, hard to get you mouth around it. Waitress was just perfect, a young girl that you wish could wait on you everyday. She was full of smiles and quick with food. She... More

We were looking for a restaurant on the water for a quiet dinner. Though it was a limited water view, the dinner definitely made it worth it. I had trout in brown butter; so good I wanted the recipe. My husband had fried shrimp, which was far superior to what he had earlier in the week. We also ordered the... More

We had a family dinner a week ago, 3/11. We have eaten here many times. This time 3 members ordered different fried entrees. Later that evening the fried food did not agree with them. It was quite greasy. Our other choices were ok since they were not fried. The service was great, but it may be a while before we... More

This is a good restaurant to visit and eat seafood for reasonable prices.The food is well prepared and presented. The fish is prepared perfectly and for me the draw is they have fried clams which over the years I have had a hard time finding outside of New England. They also do a fine job cooking fish. My wife loves... More

We saw the reviews and had to try it! Shrimp & Grits was one of the better ones we've tried! Mixed drinks were mixed strong and flavorful. And the desert (layered chocolate mousse cake) was so good, I ended up wearing it on my face on the way out! Lol!
