Solid Hilton Head restaurant never disappoints. Huge menu of options reasonably priced. Island decor very inviting. My wife and I both had the house salad to begin followed by the Salmon, which was prepared with an island mango topping/sauce. The whipped potatoes and fresh veggies were great complementing the meal. Rick was a very efficient and helpful server. Will certainly return.

We’ve been here many times. Love the atmosphere and the menu

First time I ordered something I wasn’t thrilled about. The Island Cobb Salad itself was great but I got it with Grilled Shrimp and they just didn’t taste right.

3 out 4 were not overly impressed with the quality of the food served. Two had the seafood trio which was very bland and one had the flank steak which was really chewy and significantly under cooked. We all felt the service provided was good and in a nut shell thankful that we attended the restaurant during early dining as we would have been very disappointed if we had have paid full price for our food. This is the second year in a row we have made Marleys a stop during our trip to Hilton Head and unlikely we will keep it on our list of repeat restaurants in the future.

We were very disappointed. We took my son, his wife, and two of their friends from Germany out to dinner and this was almost embarrassing. Of course I did not say anything to the waiter but it was just not even acceptable. I was hoping it would be pretty good since we had company from Germany with us. I felt embarrassed with our friends. I ordered grilled, blackened shrimp with a vegetable. It seemed that they just defrosted some shrimp from a bag and heated them - barely heated, and no seasoning and put on a plate. Will not return again.

Love Marley's. Food is fantastic, something for every pallet and good value for the $ which says a lot here in Hilton Head. Service is good . My big complaint is the noise level. I wish the owner would try to find a way to soften the noise. The high ceilings and large open rooms contribute to the high noise level. It is such a fun atmosphere but suffers when you have trouble hearing your dinner companions over the "dining room" noise. However, I strongly recommend this restaurant for any occasion! It is one of Hilton Head's gems.

I had ordered the crab cake, filet and pork dish and the filet was small - that was ok - but it was a bit tough to cut. I didn’t make mention of it to our server because we were there with a group of friends. For its size I feel it should have been fork tender. There are so many other places to choose to eat, I probably would not come back.

Tried the broiled seafood. Stuffed shrimp was good, best part was the stuffed flounder by far. Scallops were just ok, not a great taste. Our other entree was a seafood pasta with garlic wine sauce that was very good.

We were there on a slow night, so I don't know how noisy it might be when full. Vegetables were nicely cooked, not too soft, scallops were OK, but seemed a bit oily. My husband liked the chicken with red pepper pasta.

Marley's offers alot of variety from shrimp to fish, steak, tacos, Jerk chicken, conch fritters, etc. You will surely find something you will like. As with most restaurants some of these items are super and some are quite lackluster. I do not suggest that you get the stuffed shrimp. The crab stuffing was half raw so I ended up removing most of it and just eating the shrimp. The coconut shrimp on the other hand are spectacular. Just make wise decisions and ask your serve for honest suggestions. It is a pretty loud restaurant so if you have anyone with hearing difficulties steer clear of seats near the bar. The service was great.

How can you mess up a fish taco?
Watery lettuce, very little, but watery fish. Sent it back. Others in my party had cold food and lots of green beans. Who has green beans with tacos?
Would never go back.
