We had an early reservation as we were going to a basketball game that evening. We had the calamari and gumbo which were both good. My friend had the chicken Cobb salad which he said was tasty, and I had the blt salad. I had to ask for bacon as there was none on the salad! I thought the salads were overpriced for the size.
Great food and excellent service
I absolutely love The Blue Marlin. We traveled from Overseas to celebrate our son in the military and they welcomed us with great customer service. The staff made sure they accommodated our party of ten. We ordered different entrees so that we can try a little bit of everything and everything we ordered was DELICIOUS. I’m a foodie and this one is definitely our family favorite. Thank you The Blue Marlin for making our dining experience a great one.
Overall not a bad experience I felt very rushed by the server who seemed more ready to send us on our way and get another table in then to make us feel comfortable the noise level was very high and a bit cramped on space the portions the food for the price was extraordinary The Taste was okay but could have used a bit more wow factor and although primarily a seafood restaurant some more options for those that do not eat seafood would have been nice
Great Food, ambience, customer service and location. Loved it and will return again!
We have Guest in town for a company visit and made reservations at Blue Marlin with great expectations. You guys impressed our guest and provided a memorable dining experience.
SUNDAY BRUNCH. CRAB CAKE WAS TASTY BUT TOO MUCH BREAD (SO NOT LIKE ONE GETS AT THE SHORE). CHICKEN WITH BISCUITS, GRAVY AND COLLARD GREENS (GOOD!!) WAS JUICY. SIDE SPICY SLAW WAS GOOD TOO. GOOD SELECTION OF WINES BY THE GLASS. WAITSTAFF WERE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.
We fully enjoyed our meal here. The mahi was delicious, our waitress was attentive. My only complaint is we were seated 20-25 minutes after our reservation time and we arrived 15 minutes early... overall we would be back if in the area again (we are from out of town).
It was my wife's birthday dinner. We do not get out often with three kids so this was supposed to be a special treat. Calamari appetizer was overcooked and rubbery. My wife was unable to eat the shrimp and grits due to amount of hot spices that it had in it and she normally enjoys spicy food. The seafood platter was decent but there was more breading than anything else.
I know this is one of the premier restaurants in Columbia, but this was the second time I have dined there and I have been disappointed both times. Granted the first time was roughly 20 years ago but ... fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me ... there wont be a third time.
Overall great experience. Service was wonderful as was the food.
Love this restaurant, always on my list to visit when in Columbia. Chantelle is sweet and attentive. A must try!
Fantastic fried oysters!
This is the second time I was at Blue Marlin, and on both occasions the food and service were excellent and the prices were reasonable. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Our meal was delicious. They follow my instructions to not make mine spicy.. (grilled instead of blackened). Service was delightful. Very enjoyable evening though it could take sound insulation
The food is always good here but this time my order wasnt correct. Will definitely go back. Atmosphere is nice also. Thank you Blue Marlin!
