    Okay, so we didn't technically end up eating at Four Marlins. We had reservations and had intentions to eat there. The hostess was okay, not super friendly and on the serious side. We got seated right away on the outside deck to the left (when looking at their bar). There was an unpleasant smell (kind of like feta cheese) that we couldn't get past. So we went back to the hostess and asked if there was an inside table (there were A LOT of empty tables). She spoke with a co-worker and they ended up sitting us outside to the right of the bar instead this time. Again the interaction wasn't in the friendliest manner towards us once again. That being said, the smell was WAY better where we were seated this time. Unfortunately, we sat there for a solid 5 minutes without acknowledgement from anyone, didn't have a good vibe from the experience thus far, and so decided to walk out and go next door to Milagros instead. Which was amazing! Sorry Four Marlins; you weren't for us.

    Everything was great except for the very cold temperature in the restaurant. It’s difficult to enjoy fantastic food when you’re struggling to stay comfortable. I really don’t care if the staff is hot; it should be all about the guests.

    Excellent location right on the beach and a gazebo to view the sunset from. Whole extensive, the wine list has limited good-value choices if you prefer old-world wines. The staff was perfect. When she noticed we didn’t enjoy the pork-belly sliders, which were not properly cooked just surfaced grilled she immediately to exchange it with another alternative. At no point were we felt that we are overstaying our welcome even after 2 1/2 hours. Very relaxing sunset followed by a course of three appetizers we shared.

    A great restaurant to see the sunset. We found the staff to be a little distracted. The drinks were not well made and the bartender seemed more concerned with chatting with people at the bar than making drinks. It wasn’t crowded and the drinks took a long time to be made.

    This is an outstanding place for lunch. We took an outside table with a great view of the sea/beach. It was expensive - but I expect to pay more for excellence. My only criticism was that we had to play “hunt the lobster” in the lobster roll. Service was second-to-none.

    The calamari appetizer was too breaded and hard. The blackened grouper was good but maybe sat under the heat lamp a little too long, food wasn’t hot and okra in the succotash had no taste and was borderline gross :/ only heard great things about the Blue Marlin so maybe it was just a bad night.
