    The interior reminded me of Tortola. The She Crab Chowder was the best I've had on HH. I had the talapia and my husband had the low country boil. Before we left, we made a reservation for another night during our stay. Luv2chew

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    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.

    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.

    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.

    We have eaten at Marley's on numerous occasions and have always found the food offerings to be excellent in preparation and variety. My thoughts this year though were that we were rushed in and out so quickly that I wasn't sure that i had eaten. I know it is "inseason" but this was a little over the top. just something to think about.

    Whenever we visit Hilton Head, we dine at Marley's Island Grille! We have never been disappointed. Our waitress, Joy, was energetic, attentive and upbeat. She made us feel like we were regulars. The food was delicous, and they accommodated our requests. We are especially thrilled that Marleys is on Open Table. We make our reservations before we leave home, and are assured we will not have to wait for our table. We look forward to next summer's visit!

    The food was not very good. maybe a bad night i am not sure. We did hear the table next to us comment that their food was also not very good. We were on vacation and thought it would be a nice place for dinner. we were mistaken. The service was not very good. took a long time for drink refills. food was fast but that may have been the problem.

    I was very impressed with marley's. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Service was good. The only negative was the salad dressing tasted like pure vinegar. We could not eat it. We mentioned it to the waiter. No offer to compensate us. Or to replace it with something else. He just picked up the plates without a word to our telling him that we could not eat the salad. Other than that it was good.

    This is a fun upbeat restaurant with large menu that everyone can easily find something they like. The children's menu is good also. My boys love steak and mashed potatoes, and it's nice to see that on the kids menu, and not just the standard fried stuff. The island decor makes you feel like you are on vacation in the Caribbean., plus the wide array of tropical drinks tops it off ! The best part is the ice cream parlor in conjunction to the restaurant. Get your handmade gourmet ice cream, hang outside the courtyard, and people watch !
