Our favorite sea food in Ana Maria. Always make this a stop on our vacation
We had a fantastic time! Servers were very fun and friendly. Ambiance and decor are fabulous.
Service and food were excellent
The food was AMAZING and the service was outstanding. We were visiting from out of town and had 2/3 of our dinners here. We would definitely come back!
A bit of a let down. Service took forever to get the order taken and wait for the food. Guess it was only 9 pm and they were closing down on Friday night soon.
The pecan crusted grouper was bland. A disappointing finish to a week on the island.
Fabulous - as always - fresh, simple done creatively, local - one of our go to’s
Super friendly and happy employees, great food and beverage. Would definitely go back to try other selections.
Blue Marlin had great food in a casual atmosphere. There was something on the menu for everyone, from fresh seafood, to steaks, and a crazy good cheeseburger. No way you can make it through the appetizers and have room for dessert - both awesome. Save time for two visits!
Service was exceptional. Weather was not great so had to sit inside however, the nautical decor made up for it. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped me navigate having several food allergies. He worked with the kitchen to prepare something delicious that I could actually eat. Will definitely return.
We made a reservation for four to have Mother's Day dinner here. We were constantly catered to from the moment we stepped in the door. We were quickly shown to our table and given a run down of the menu. Our party ordered drinks and the shrimp eggrolls for an appetizer, and for dinner the seafood alredo, GLT sandwich, linguini white clam, and the cortez boil. The food was all delicious, the atmosphere was very nice, and the service was wonderful. We will definitely be back to try a more casual stop at their outdoor bar where there's live music!
Good staff and good food as usual. We will return when we are back in LBK
We were so impressed. Fabulous food, stellar service, and an overall incredible experience!
Great fresh seafood! Excellent atmosphere! Will be back again for sure!
Our out of town guests were very impressed!
The food is good and we always have good service!!!!!!
Love the Blue Marlin, been having dinner there since it first opened - food has always been great. That said menu has become a little tired. It almost seems that staff are going through the motions - many of the dinner items seem to come out over cooked (two visits in the last three weeks- while on vacation). Even the hush puppies are over cooked. I guess you can live off first-timers. Hoping this a small blimp in the busy year and the great service and food return to make it an experience not just a dinner.
We make sure to visit Blue Marlin at least once whenever we are on Anna Maria. Great food, incredible service, and wonderful ambiance for a nice night out. Make sure you say hi to Max!
You can count on the Blue Marlin for the freshest local seafood on Anna Maria Island. The menu will appeal to all and if you are a foodie you will be in heaven. The wine list and desserts make the experience complete! Hands down our favorite restaurant.
Celebrating my sons College Graduation Very friendly and great food
Best service, fresh everything and creative menu. Our local favorite.
Great dinner as always. Not sure why my email said I would not get open reward points for my reservation
one of our favorite restaurants. always excellent food & superb service.
One of our favorite restaurants. Food is always spectacular and the service is always excellent we highly recommend!
This is my second visit to Blue Marlin after having visited Anna Maria Island about 5 years ago. They always have a few fresh caught items as daily specials which is what I ordered - Black Grouper. Nice and flavorful and accompaniments were also delicious. The only reason I rated Ambiance as a four is because of the super elevated noise level. There were a few boisterous four person parties that were difficult to hear over. But this is a small place and not under management control. For service and food, I highly recommend!
The service was outstanding, the ambiance simply lovely and the experience exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to return!
Food was good but only beer and wine. With 3/6 drinking vodka a bit of a bummer. But overall nice
Our favorite restaurant in the area. Great food, great live music on weekends. Nice outside casual bar, seating for the music!
Very good food. We actually realized that we had over ordered and our server handled it perfectly.
We will definitely return and enjoyed a post dinner glass of wine outside along with great background blues. Fun evening!
Visitors to Bradenton Beach for last three years, this is our favourite restaurant in the area and we have eaten there at least twice during each visit.
The staff are welcoming, friendly and provide excellent service.
The food is good quality & fresh and because the chef was unhappy with the clams and had to cook some more, we were provided with a complimentary starter of really delicious potato soup whilst our entrees were being prepared.
Great service and food
Love the staff!
Expensive meal. Last twice we have been have not been a great experience, so will not bother again, gave them a chance but don't waste your money. Meal took ages to arrive and then both course came without a gap - poor service. Two free puddings between four does not make up for lousy service
We eat at blue marlin 4-6 times a year when we are on AMI. Generally speaking they deserve all great reviews for food and service. Plus love the space and outdoor music venue. However I wish they would vary the menu a little. Catch of day always grouper which I don’t love. And those rock hard burnt balls they call hush puppies?? What’s up with that.
The food was great; loved the grouper and the scallop appetizer. They also have a decent wine list. Wait staff was friendly and and good.
My favorite all time restaurant! From outside entertainment to fresh food and service, we are never disappointed!
Our second trip to Blue Marlin. We had such a great experience the first time we were afraid we would be disappointed. But met and exceeded all our expectations. Service, ambiance, and food all terrific. Love the outside patio and the music.
Stuffy restaurant with mediocre food. Surprisingly pretentious in a laid back area.
Our favorite restaurant on the island!!!
We loved the Blue Marlin. They only have beer and wine but the waiter let us go across the street to get a cocktail and bring it back to our table. Great music. Delicious clams. Lively spot on the main drag. We had a blast.
Fresh fish everyday. Every part of the
meal is made to perfection and gives your taste buds an exquisite adven9.
