    We visited Marleys again and this time tried their Early Dining option. Prices were great and there were plenty of choices. The Flounder Imperial was delicious and certainly is not a dish that you would expect to find at Early Dining Prices. Fabulous Value. As an appetizer, we had the Goat cheese because it's my favorite. I was tempted to try something else because everything sounded so good, but i do Crave the Goat Cheese and so we went for that again. Yep, I'm already craving it again... They had some custom flavors in the Ice Cream Shop so we tried 2 of them. The Bonfire Ice Cream was amazing, as was the Spookies & Cream. We bought a quart of the Bonfire to take home.

    Service was excellent! Food tasty and well prepared. It was nice to be addressed by name when arriving and the manager checked back with us at least twice during the meal to make sure that everything was to our liking. I would probably not use Marley's during the summer months as it would be very crowded and noisey with summer residents and tourists. But enjoyed the meal and the service was just great! I work in the food service business and really appreciate a server who knows her business!

    Loved the ambiance. Lots of parking. Seemed to be an older bar crowd. Definitely not where the young go. Food was Meh. I had a salad and it was drenched in dressing. My husband had the fish sandwich and said it was good. Good fries. My daughter had coconut shrimp and ribs. Did not like either. Actually sent the ribs back. Server was very nice and attentive.

    We had the pleasure of dining at Marleys for dinner. Marleys was recently reacquired by a local restaurant group, Serg. It has come a long way thanks to Serg! The food was amazing...I enjoyed the Supa Dupa Groupa. They also looked like they had a good late night scene going. As I was leaving the bar was filling up. Outside was plenty to do for families. Be sure to stop by the ice cream shop for their homemade ice cream, the turtle is to die for. Can't wait to go back!

    An outdoor deck between the restaurant and an Ice Cream shop looked like a nice place for comfort food, but not expecting much more. We were surprised. I had mussels prepared with a Chorizo sauce that was excellent.

    Had a drink at the-indoor bar with Tracy and Natalie. They made you feel right at home. Sat outside on a beautiful fall night and enjoyed the early dining menu. I had the baked flounder imperial and Rob was our server who took good care of us. We saveed room for dessert and had home made ice cream at the ice cream shop attached to the restaurant! Will definitely be back!

    From first entering the restaurant to finishing our meal the entire staff was very friendly. Our server, Jeff, was very knowledgeable of the menu and could make excellent recommendations. He was attentive, but not overly attentive. Manager stopped by to check on us too. Enjoyed our meal and atmosphere. Even played a game of Jenga outside on the patio when we finished eating. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

    While on HHI with friends we decided to try a new resturant - we had already visited four SERG restaurants. The server acted like she was doing us a favor to serve us. The food was nothing special and given the prices there are much better choices on the island. Since they apparently have recently returned to the SERG group maybe there is hope

    We just at at Marley's again. The patio was open for dinner seating and it was a beautiful evening so we opted for that. The service was friendly and fast, our server made great recommendations without being pushy. The Goat Cheese appetizer was amazing. We each had fish and it was so fresh and delicious (the supa dupa groupa is my favorite). A nice surprise was dessert, our server pointed out that they made their own ice cream. So we each had ice cream and coffee while we relaxed on the patio. I recommend Marleys to anyone who wants a unique dining experience, great food, great service, and.... Home made ice cream.

Our waitress was very nice and explained the selections and raved about the fillet to my wife as well. Our experience was fantastic. We will make this a year stop when we visit Hilton Head.

    We ate outside and enjoyed our meal. Only deterrent were these little black no-see-em bugs that were around our table sporadically. Our meals were quite good, esp. the house salad. The house dressing is fabulous, as is the complimentary bread they serve with the meals. My husband had a marinated sirloin and I had the seafood trio. Both were well prepared and quite good.

    We were looking for a casual restaurant that had good steamed shrimp and Marley's met our expectations. The shrimp could be steamed 5 different ways. We had them in a chorizo broth and in a garlic wine broth. Both were delicious. My only complaint would be that I had the combination which included shrimp, clams and mussels--I wish it included more shrimp but the clams and mussels were good. I enjoyed this restaurant.

    I am not impressed with the new management. First we were seated in a room which was so hot we asked to move, at which point we were seated between the kitchen and servers station right in the traffic pattern but at least cooler. The server forgot to put in my husbands salad order. Another family member received no entree and had to wait another 10 minutes. The server and manager were apologetic and offered a comped soup or dessert, but it hardly made up. My tuna was over sauced to the point of not being able to taste the fish, and was mostly gristle. The chef came out to speak with me, said the tuna was cut wrong and brought me a new one, which was edible, but by that time I was ready to leave. We won't be returning next summer.

    We were staying for one night waiting for the Marine Corps graduation and were unfamiliar with the area. We took a chance on Marley's Island Grille and couldn't have been happier. From the great ambiance to every decorating detail, this restaurant delivered at the 5 star level. The food was incredible, the service was friendly and prompt, and we felt we got a great meal in a great environment for a great price. When we do visit Hilton Head soon, Marley's will be on our list of have to enjoy places. Great job guys and I recommend you highly to any family or couple visiting the area!

    First of all, kudos to Marleys for using Open Table, because so many establishments use the "show up and wait" method. I was able to book a table for our group of 18 without a hitch - so nice when you've got a group of that size and trying to just get them all there at the same time. There are a multitude of choices in HHI for dining, but, we all agreed that Marleys was a standout for the quality of the food served, the menu choices, the ambiance, and the service. Our waitress took everything in stride, was efficient and accurate, and made sure everyone was happy with their meals in enough time to correct it (although we had zero problems). The experience left a pleasant memory, and we all agreed that we will make a return visit when.

Our only complaint was how noisy it was. Our server couldn't even hear us when we ordered. We couldn't hear him, so had no clue what the specials were.

    We are usually pretty picky when it comes to local restaurant standards since we are locals and many of the restaurants here are just a tourist trap. We were hesitant to try Marley's after just a few negative reviews, but decided to give it a chance. The food was awesome, not just one thing but all of it (appetizer, salad, entrees) I left a little disappointed that I didn't have room to try desert! Our service was great as well. Not the quietest of places but was just fine for our casual date night.
