The restaurant was very attractive with a fun upbeat atmosphere…just what we were looking for on a Friday evening. Well that’s where it ended! Our server was not that pleasant, but I won’t hold it against her due to how crowded the restaurant was. The food, however, was awful. BLT salad was drenched in ranch dressing and was basically bordering on inedible. The Charleston Crabcakes had NO jumbo lump crabmeat in it at all and if it did, you’d need a microscope to find! My sides, green beans and rice, were lukewarm. My husband’s dish consisted of the same green beans and cold mashed potatoes accompanied by a small portion of blackened Mahi-mahi, which was good. We came away feeling as if we just put a match to $95! Will NOT be dining at the Blue Marlin again!

The blackened prime rib was a good cut and well cooked, but totally lacked salt. I don't usually add salt, but had to with this dish. The mahi and chicken were also tasteless. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant and the green beans were undercooked and totally lacking flavor. Overall, a very disappointing experience.
