Diner Reviews
  • "This is a must visit on our vacation. We eat here every year."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I am a local and had not been to Marley's. Looking for a place to take friends from out of town. It was nice, the food was good, the selection was okay but a lot of seafood items on menu. The only issue was the noise level, we could hardly hear the waitress. I think it is a fun place, very lively and lots to see especially if you are sitting by the window. Would suggest going, but use Open Table to make reservation. Got in exactly when our reservation time came ."

  • "The restaurant was noisy, so much so that our server couldn't hear us and we couldn't hear him. The food was excellent. We got the crab soup, clam kettle with beer and old bay, and shrimp kettle with the red sauce. I was shocked at the number of clams I got. It was very tasty and filling."

  • "My girlfriend and I had a blast here. We were seated promptly by a very gracious host. They have a big menu, and our server was fantastic in making great recommendations. We started with a Pu Pu Platter (a great sampler of appetizers) and drinks in logoed glassware that we got to keep as collectibles. I'm a steak guy, so I got a very tender NY Strip, and my girlfriend got one of their specials, a fresh from Hawaii Big Eye Tuna that she said was the best tuna she ever had. All our food was spaced perfectly, presentation was a 10/10 and flavor was out of this world. We'll definitely be back with some family, their whole patio is devoted to entertainment with great stuff for kids. Stopped at Ice Cream store after, loved my "campfire""

  • "This was a great place. We had a party of 13. Our service was great. Sarah, our waitress, was fantastic. So nice and friendly. She went the extra mile. The food was served and everyone enjoyed their food. We would go back to this place when we come back next year. Also, they had a band playing just outside and the kids loved to dance."

  • "We stopped in expected it to be good, but it was great. Food = Great. Service = Great. Atmosphere = great! fun lively. Had the baked goat cheese app. OMG awesome. Supra Dupatta Grupa for dinner, loved it. By buddy had a fish special that was flown in by FedEx from Hawaii overnight. Server said that have fish flown in daily via FedEx from Hawaii. Wow! Where else do you get that?! Definitely recommend! Will try their early dining specials this week."

  • "Booked the reservation prior to reading the reviews. Was concerned about the level of noise we were going to experience. Upon arrival, the noise level was moderate so we continued with seating and were directed to a booth near the bar. Wait staff was amazing, I think her name was Joy. Food was good, we both had entree salads and shared the key lime cheesecake for dessert. Throughout the meal, there was no issue having a conversation at a normal speaking tone. They got the message and turned down the volume."

  • "we eat at Marleys every year and would usually always give it a 5. I rated it a 4 due to my wifes scallops being served half raw. They corrected and all was good."

  • "We had a wonderful meal. Good portion sizes. Helpful waitress. It was very loud even though we went in early. Fun atmosphere. It was a great kid friendly option on Hilton Head Island. I would definitely come back again."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The first night we went the steak was cooked perfect. I ordered it butterfly and medium well. Had a slight color of pink but not too much. The second time we visited the steak was over done. My daughter ordered the kids filet and ordered hers medium well and it was very well done. We didn't complain because the taste was still excellent. Just wish the steak was as perfect the second time as it was the first."

  • "We went out for a family dinner while on vacation. Someone had recommended it as a must go to place for dinner. Food was good but not great. I liked that we could make reservations."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We arrived just as the early dining menu was ending and our servers were right on with our orders so we could still get the specials. We then were able to get specialty drinks and enjoy the evening with our friends. Fish tacos were good, fried seafood special was excellent. All the food was hot and nicely served. Highly recommend"

  • "We had a very nice dinner at Marley's. There were two adults and three teenage boys. We were immediately seated and had an amazing server who was super-attentive. Food was very good but not great. It was a bit noisy but we were near the bar. Atmosphere is fun and tropical."

  • "While on vacation in HH we had the pleasure of dining at Marleys The staff was very friendly and attentive We went with a table of 8 and everyone had a wonderful dinner! We will definitely be back next trip to HH. Food was delicious!! Great Job!"

  • "We had a party of seven. All of the seafood was overdone. The fish was dry. The shrimp and scallops were tough."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The restaurant was enjoyable for both kids and adults but they do need to enlarge their kids menu to include hamburgers. I had what was a well grilled fish up until where it was smothered with salsa which ruined the taste of the fish. Other entrees were well appreciated."

  • "Good food. Just a little noisy, but if you have kids it works well."

  • "We met friends for dinner and a party of four set in a semicircle booth. A little cramped. Noise level was louder than I remember from the last time there. It may have been where we were seated, but it was hard to carry on a conversation. We had the red fish nightly special. I was disappointed. We thought it was overpriced. It was not what I expected for $29.00. My friend had the tuna, and liked it. It looked better, bigger, and for less price. Overall it was an okay dinner, just not what I remembered from previous visits"

  • "First time at the restaurant and three of four meals were very average. Did not like the BBQ sauce on the salmon."

  • "We have been to Hilton Head Island for the past 16 years vacationing and tried Marleys for the first time. It was a hit with the family! Our server Jessica was fantastic and led us through a great meal. We loved the plantains! The fresh fish was absolutely fantastic!"

  • "Great food, fun atmosphere, excellent service! Supa Dupa Grouper and sugar cane scallops are awesome. Cuban dish:fantastic, Broiled sea food trio: excellent! kids meals: perfect. Bad choice in music and noise level off the charts...out of control, so bring your earplugs and a megaphone so you can communicate with your fellow diners, servers and kids. The music genre doesn't match the vibe of the restaurant theme. Think Metallica concert on steroids and you are seated right in front of the speaker towers during a guitar solo. Yikes!"

  • "Been wanting to go. Made reservations for a weeknite. Crazy My server was pleasant but hurried. My bad for going during season. The food was tasteful but not special. I will return after summer season and give it another try. I liked the menu 😊❕🍴"

  • "Visited Marleys three times and it went from bad to worse for our last visit. Made a reservation and was seated finally outside 20 minutes after we arrived on time for our reservation. From there it took 40 minutes to get bread, an hour to get an appetizer, and then only got a part of our order. the final person in our party got his order after everyone was finished - 90 minutes after we sat down. They made things right with the bill, but this was a problem of management and the kitchen. After all that the food (never better than just average), was definitely not worth waiting for. Won't be going back."

  • "Atmosphere is okay, service is good, food is very good but the price is too high for regular folks like us. In today's economy, people still check for bargains."

  • "We visit Hilton Head every year for a family reunion. Marley's is always a favorite place on our list. This year was disappointing. While our service was terrific - Cheyenne is a great server - the food was marginal at best. One of my favorite dishes, Supa Dupa Grouper, was really not good. The fish was over cooked and dry, the black beans seemed to be days old and the green beans were cold. The appetizer chips and salsa was also not good. The chips were stale and hard. The atmosphere is always lively and the staff seems very capable and nice but I don't think we will make Marley's part of our plans next year."

  • "When on vacation in the area we always make a point to visit Marley's, their food is outstanding. There menu is just a little unique without being outlandish, the ingredients are thoughtfully put together. It never disappoints."

  • "My family & I ate here on our last night before leaving for home. It was on a list of restaurants recommended by the Cottages of Shipyard. The service was outstanding & all of our food was terrific. Again, very sad it was our last day or we would have come more often to eat."

  • "We have been coming to Hilton Head for 10 years and have never eaten at Marleys ... Our mistake!! The food (voodoo shrimp, salmon, strip, steak skewer, chicken fingers) was outstanding! The service (Jessica) was fantastic. After a hot day on the beach this was a very pleasant environment for our family ... We loved it so much we are going back tonight."

  • "We were greeted and seated within 10 minutes of arrival for our 7:15 reservation. The server was well informed and quick to respond to requests for drinks, refills, etc. It was a bit noisy but it's June on Hilton Head and it was the dinner hour so we expected that, and it's not bad even though it's "energetic". The food was well prepared and great presentation as has always been the case when we've dined there. I ordered the Sugar Cane Scallops and they melted in my mouth. Hubby and friends had fish and it was also wonderful. We go at least once each time we're on the Island and have never been disappointed. It's one of our favorite dining spots on HH."

  • "We always go to Marley's when we visit Hilton Head on vacation. The whole family can find something to suit them on the menu -- from pasta to grilled items. The staff is always accommodating and energetic. We always stop by the ice cream shop afterwards for dessert and to play all the fun games they have outside."

  • "Marley's is ideal for a family dinner. If you don't have kids in your party, you'll find some sitting next to you :) We had a party of 6 (4 adults + 2 kids). The kids menu was comparable to what you'd find elsewhere. Our kids seemed to enjoy their meals. The standard adult menu had a lot of variety (including price). I took the more cost effective route and went with the Rasta Chicken Pasta. Good portion with a little zip. The Pork Tenderloin w/ Peanut sauce also go a 2 thumbs up at the table. Marley's does take reservations. Be wise, and make the reservation because it can get busy. When you're done with dinner, stroll over to the ice cream shop next door and enjoy watching the kids play the outdoor games."

  • "Been several years since we dined here and found the food much improved. Service was only fair as two other large tables were assigned to our server right after we were seated. This was not fair to the server or to us. Enjoyed the grouper meal and the shrimp appetizer. Great quality for family dining."
