Diner Reviews
  • "Food portions small and pricey. When asked for a salad without Hearts of Palm, it came with and the waiter noticed by saying well they put them in anyway, without offering another salad or discount. Steamed shrimp (in beer and Old Bay seasoning) came in a broth but were practically tasteless. $10 appetizer of bacon wrapped shrimp came with 4 small shrimp. Very dark Many better places on Hilton Head Island to experience. I feel like we wasted a night's dining experience on this obvious tourist trap."

  • "I will never read unfavorable reviews again! What a great dining experience! The "She Crab Chowder" was outstanding. From the upstate NY area, we had never had it before. The crab cakes were great, also. Loved the different sides also. Think outside the box and enjoy a wonderful Meal."

  • "They have swordfish on the menu and I asked the waiter if I could get it blackened, he said yes. It came out perfect, blackened and tender on the inside."

  • "They were great. Took a reservation for 12. Food was good, service was great!"

  • "Sugar Cane Grilled Scallops that everyone raves about were nothing special, not bad, but not great. The waitress was mean, seemed constantly annoyed, and screwed up/couldn't remember orders. Overall, the experience was just "okay"...I would not recommend this restaurant (particularly for the price, $60 for 2 people), go to the Sea Shack instead - much more local, better food, and service that actually makes you feel welcome."

  • "Normally we have a great experience at Marley's however, this time I can't say that. We were somewhat undecided on our meal choices, so the waitress had to come back a second time to get the rest of our groups order. I am guessing things were busy, as I never received my salad and our friends chicken was undercooked. We will return in the future, but if these mishaps occur more often our visits will be further apart."

  • "We dined there in the evening. The restaurant has recently changed ownership and added several new items. We each had something different and everything was excellent. The service was very good and our server did a great job. Would highly recommend"

  • "It is a noisy place - I had a teriyaki sirloin (very tough) with a strange, medicinal flavor. My wife had mussels, which she said were quite good. The food was not worth the price. Our server, Joy, was excellent."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "The food was ok. A little pricey for what we got but it's a tourist location so it's to be expected. Our server seemed very annoyed the entire evening and was not helpful. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes and the filet looked and tasted more like a sirloin. I would not recommend this restaurant."

  • "On our recent visit to HHI, we enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. Have been here before and enjoyed it then also. This time, we had the soup of the day-clam and corn. Very creamy and full of clams and corn. Not a fan of mahi mahi, so asked the waiter to see if the chef would make the pecan crusted preparation with a honey mustard sauce on a different fish. The chef was very accommodating and used tilapia. The fish was so tasty-we suggested that chef add it to the menu. Pleasant evening with good service also. Thanks again to the chef."

  • "Both of us decided to have the special of blackened grouper and shrimp with scalloped potatoes and carrots and broccoli in a light lemon cream sauce. It was delivered quickly and nice and hot, which on Friday nights at many restaurants just doesn't happen. Fantastic!"

  • "This is a fun restaurant that makes you feel like you are on a Caribbean vacation. We went on national Margarita day and they were really delicious. The jerk chicken and rice with black beans were very flavorful. The service was attentive."

  • "Went here on day of an ice storm. Not a normal night for Hilton Head. Luckily our reservations were at 5:00 as they closed at 6:00 due to the ice. All the area businesses closed so they were anxious about getting home. Even so, our dinner was very good, especially the appetizer, which was kind of a steak fajita that was just on the "restaurant week" menu. I can't remember the exact name. I asked the waitress and she said they could probably make them anytime if you requested them. I haven't tried that yet to see if that is the case, but definately will next time we go. Had the signature tenderlion pork in their special sauce. Always a good choice."

  • "Rather amazing in that we had a 6:00 reservation, the place was packed, we got our food quickly and were out the door in about 50 minutes, but weren't rushed ... we were just ready to go. Her crab cakes were very good, not as good as Reilley's my expert tells me, but still very good. My pecan crusted mahi was also very good. Great veggies with the mashed potatoes. Nice evening! Our waitress was great ... wish I could remember her name to give her some props!!"

  • "It was quiet dining on a Thursday. There were only 4 groups. It was restaurant week so a 3 course meal was available for $22.99. The 3 people with me choose this option and were pleased with there selections. They had a lot of food for a reasonable price. I had the pecan encrusted fish and it was wonderful--full of flavor and cooked to perfection. We have been here many times and have not been disappointed. Service was average this trip. I had had much better!!"

  • "Server tried to squeeze 6 into a booth. Moved to a table...ordered drinks, waited a bit and then asked to move again because we were a fire hazard sitting in that area. Moved to a table beside the bar (we had asked not to sit by the bar because of the noise from the Happy Hour group) Brought entrees out while we were still eating the appetizers. One of entrees was entirely wrong... Others we're finished eating by the time hers was served...she was embarrassed. No manager came to apologize and no adjustment to the bill was offered. Food was OK but I doubt anyone will return...too many other, better places to eat on Hilton Head Island"

  • "Returned a grilled fish dinner because it was cold; same plate came back microwaved and the fish tasted like rubber. They at least took it off the bill.Otherwise the food and service was mediocre."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Although our waitress was wonderful and the food was served quickly, it was quite disappointing. We have dined here many times, both on season and off, but after this visit we won't be rushing back. My appetizer was lukewarm and my father was not happy with his entree."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "We had a wonderful lunch again at Marley's. With just the greeter and one waitstaff, it took too long to be seated and to get the waitstaff's attention. Would we go back again anyhow, ABSOLUTELY! Great food!"

  • "The service was excellent as was the food, even on a busy evening. Our waitress took care of a nearby table with at least 20 persons, but never missed a beat at our table of 4. We will be back soon."

  • "Seafood entrees were very good and good to large size. Service was very good. Noise level is high but not too high to speak to people at the table."

  • "Been by this restaurant thousands of times, and thought it was an Ice Cream Parlor. Found the Menu online and was shocked to see the offering. Started with a Bang Bang Shrimp and TUNA Appetizer that was as good as we have had, the Sriracha Bang Bang Sauce was served on the side for the Tuna and was a perfect not to hot dipping sauce. Dinner was a Cajun Spiced Ribeye Special that was cooked to Medium Rare Perfection, and n Island Cobb Salad served with an Avocado Ranch type dressing. We enjoyed every bite. Our Service was always there when least expected, but at the right time. Food was quickly prepared and there was little wait time between courses. Highly recommend Marley's Grill and we will return often."

  • "We have had dinner here several times over the past years and considered it a safe bet for a fun atmosphere and good food. The service was untrained , not helpful , and very unappreciative. One of our meals was cold. It had the feel of a tired place without ownership presence to make it run like a good business."

  • "We went to celebrate the last night of our week at the beach. The service was prompt and friendly. Prices were reasonable. Food was fair. We had 7 in our party and 2 liked the food, 2 did not and found it bland; the others thought it was "fine". Overall, we got an average, or slightly above average, meal. Nothing really to complain or brag about. I think I would try it again and try some different things."
