Blue Marlin - Bradenton Beach Ratings and Reviews
Really enjoyed our meal at Blue Marlin. I had the plantain crusted tilapia and it was delicious! The wine list is extensive and well priced, as well as the beer selection. Really enjoyed the Burrata salad and empanadillas we had as an appetizer. Desserts were excellent too! Service was pleasant and we loved the decor and ambiance. Definitely will be back again soon!
We had an excellent dining experience!! It was our 10 year wedding anniversary our outstanding server gave us some complimentary bubbly and comped one of our desserts. From appetizers to dessert everything we had was fantastic! It’s a small place, cozy but not claustrophobic and surprisingly it wasn’t really loud! Very, very impressed with their specials menu! Highly recommend!!!
Took two friends for their first visit - wonderful experience for all! Homemade chips & dill dip was a great nosh with pre dinner wine! Brad was an excellent and seasoned server who made sure our evening was one to be enjoyed and remembered. Deliciousness!! See you soon, Blue Marlin!! XOXO
This was our first experience with Blue Marlin and we'll be back. Excellent service. Food was superb. The whole redfish was absolutely delicious. Our waitress was excellent and the overall ambiance was perfect. We split a piece of the pecan pie for dessert. It was the best I ever had. Loved the shortbread crust. We'll be back for sure
We sat outside, beautiful night. We were there to see Trevor Bystrom play. They did not disappoint!!! I had a Mahi special & it was over cooked. The rest of our meal was great. We will be back. We eat there every time we come to AMI. It’s the first time my meal was not 5 star. We highly recommend Blue Marlin.
I usually love this place! But service was very slow to start. We were the ones who had to ask for a drink after waiting at least 10-15 minutes and they had three empty tables next to us. And the food was just ok, ugh. Bad day for the waitress & the cook? Maybe, but hopefully next time will be sooo much better as it always was.
We did not have a positive experience. The seafood Bouillabaisse was very sandy. There was a grit in the borough and base of plate. The food was served barely warm and we where left with no utensils which by the time we could track down a waiter the food was cold. When we spoke to the waitress about our issue she offered us a free glass of house wine suiting our next visit. Seriously!? Whe just spent over $125 for dinner for two and you offer a $5 glass of wine when we come back. We will not be coming back. When the restaurant first opened a few years back we enjoyed the service and food quality. We knew the owner was trained by another famous restaurant on Anna Maria island. The last two times we ate here the quality of food and service has just gotten worse. This was my last time eating here. Sorry but the truth be told.
We throughly enjoyed our dinner, service and surroundings @ the Blue Marlin. Everyone was very professional and helpful with discriptions of menu selections and our choices were easy to make. I enjoy the fact that local purchasing of fish and seasonal veggies are used in food preparation as well as handcrafted recipes. YUMMY😃
