Stretching from Savannah to the South, and Georgetown to the North, the Low Country is resplendent with the bounties of the sea and coastal marshlands. Succulent shrimp, oysters, crabs, crawfish and catfish abound. Lush greens, corn, rice and ripe red tomatoes are plentiful. Low Country cuisine brings all of this food together in a sumptuous array of unique and distinctive dishes.

Lots of loud football fans which is no fault of the Blue Marlin. Did not mind too much because we are football fans too. Nothing negative about service-but nothing special either but food was delish!!!
Always a great experience to dine at Blue Marlin!
Made reservations and came due to a friends recommendation. Service was great but the food was not that good.
My wife and I had a great night out for her birthday. The food was excellent and our server was great. I will definitely be going back.
I believe the food used to be much better. This time and the last time I ate here, none of us in the party were particularly impressed. I will not go back.
Had dinner with a friend scheduled for 8:30 on a Wednesday night--we were seated immediately and our server came with menus after a couple of minutes. Service was great throughout dinner and our meals were terrific!
Very good restaurant. Good food. On the pricey side, but not uncommon for a decent or better seafood restaurant.
The service was good. The server new his menu , but in a little hurry. The food was just ok. The Cesar dressing was poured over poor quality lettuce.
My fish was not fresh.
It was very busy in the restaurant and had to ask our waitress multiple times for food items she kept forgetting and finally just gave up. Husband had the raviolis of which they were floating in oil. I had the blackened ribeye which did not taste like blackened and very tough and most of it was fat.
Probably will never return
Been to Blue Marlin many times. The quality of the food and the experience is slowly going down hill. My steak tonight was tough. The green beans were a mixture of over cooked and under cooked. The restaurant itself is in need of a fresh I got. Parking is always a nightmare. I do not think this restaurant is worth the trouble anymore.
We had excellent food & service! Will be coming back.
My wife and I went there for seafood but for some reason had steak and chicken which was delicious. Very friendly staff and reasonable prices.
The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. Drink selection complemented the meals well. Friendly atmosphere. Will definitely return!
We had a very bad experience so we don't character ever come back. None of us at the table enjoyed our food and it was everyone's first time to your restaurant. With such a fancy place you would think the food would be just as good as the atmosphere but it was not. It's a glorified Captain D's and I'm not happy with spending that kind of money for such poor quality food.
Food was ok. Ordered the shrimp and grits - not what I was expecting. Bland with small shrimp and sausage. No peppers, onions or sauce. The waitress was great - took it back and got me a different dish. Other meals were good. We don’t think it was worth the price.
Not as good as we remembered it being. The potatoes had so much black pepper on them I could only eat a few before they made me cough. The sauteed veggies were bland, soggy and not really warm. Friendly server. Scallops were good as was the fresh bread they brought to the table. Mahi with the citrus sauce was good as well.
Retirement dinner/celebration for co worker. Food and service was fantastic. Our server was Jarvis - took excellent care of our table!
Everything was excellent. The drinks, apps, entree were amazing. The service was perfect. The restaurant is clean and inviting. Have been there for lunch and dinner and will be back again
I had the entrée special. It was OK, but I've had better meals at Blue Marlin.
Felt like a fine dining experience but without fine dining prices. Quality food and service and atmosphere.
Yes. It is a nice place. Perhaps we caught the chef on an off night. The parking is limited. They were ready when we got there, even though we were a little early for our reservation. Considering all we had, the price was very reasonable. My steak was cooked perfectly. My wife’s shrimp and grits was basic. The calamari was good. The service was very good. They have a nice varied menu. I would have no hesitation in going back and trying other things on the menu.
Our staff event was enjoyed by all. The food was extraordinary and cooked perfectly. I'm looking forward to returning so I can try the creme brulee cheesecake.
Great dinner. Excellent food and service, waitress and bartenders went above and beyond to handle a special request. It is a little on the loud side.
This was our first visit to The Blue Marlin. Service was great. I was meeting someone for the first time and she recommended your restaurant. I ordered the skillet with oysters, shrimp, and tasso ham. I found a small piece of ham, and few chewy oysters, but never found a shrimp. The bowl of grits was huge and truthfully tasteless. My wife ordered her favorite dish, shrimp and grits. The 8 or so bay shrimp were very under seasoned and she said watery. The dish looked and tasted very bland. The lady we were meeting had the tilapia and string beans. She ate her beans and a half of a piece of fish. I had requested a "nice" table because of yhe meeting and wound up in a booth closet to the bathrooms. I did not want to embarrass our guest or I would have definitely complained to the manager. Maybe a bad day in the kitchen, maybe a poor selection of entrees. All in all a terrible meal. We eat out at least once or twice a week and was surprised at how bad the meal was. I will not recommend the Blue Marlin to anyone. I've worked in restaurants and there is always a bad day, but this meal was simply bad. I'm sorry about this review but someone needs to know. Thank you for listening. Mike McRae
Thank you for your review any and all feedback is valuable to our success! You are correct we must have had a bad night you did not receive the true Blue Marlin experience. After looking into your reservation our management team has identified the table you were sat at isn't a desirable table and we do not intend for that table to be sat for our reservations. I am sorry that policy wasn't followed through for you. We have addressed your dinning experience with our staff.
Great service, great ambience but the food was nothing special.
I mistakenly made our reservation for the wrong night. They did their beat to accommodate us, even though I was completely at fault!
My only negative comment would be that the acoustics aren’t great. The restaurant was very loud.
GREAT! GREAT! GREAT!
FANTASTIC! FANTASTIC! FANTASTIC!
We sat outside which is why I said the nose level was low but inside it was quite loud. The service and food was outstanding aside from the crab cake that was part of the seafood platter. It fell apart and did not have much taste.
Enjoyed a tasty and pleasant dinner. Split 3 appetizers among 4 of us and each was delicious - the crab & spinach dip fondue, the gumbo and the shrimp & grits. I'm not a fan of grits at all, but of all the times I've ever tried them, this was the first time I totally liked them. Dinners of blackened mahi, salmon Pontchartrain, and crab cakes were all tasty and well prepared. Only low spot for me was a kentucky mule that tasted a little bland, I think the ginger beer may have been a bit flat. But all told, it was four thumbs up and a pledge to return whenever we're back in Columbia
We were coming in from out of town and running late. I called and we were still seated as soon as we got there. Our server was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was fantastic. We will be back!
It was my girlfriend's birthday and she enjoyed it a great deal. The service was great and food delicious. Was a pleasant experience.
The service was good but the food wasn’t very good. The BLT salad was a bit watery and the scallops were small and overcooked
Was there for a birthday dinner. Asked one of the managers to inform our waitress that I wanted a dessert with a candle at the end of our meal to surprise my mom for her birthday. It was never communicated to the waitress. Waitress is very friendly. Had the shrimp and grits and it was too salty. Rest of our party said the food was average
Outstanding service and food is off the hook! Our first time here, won't be our last. Can't wait to go back :)
I love this restaurant! The food is always delicious and the service was great. Will definitely be back.
Everything was very good and the service was excellent.
La comida era deliciosa y el servicio excelente.
Overall, it was a great experience. I highly recommend.
