Delicious. If you are ordering seafood, add the special topping to your order.
My only complaint is that the food came out very quickly, and even though we weren't rushed, and even though the restaurant was not crowded, we felt rushed. That said, we love Marleys. We go back each year when we visit Hilton Head. The food is consistently great. Next year I mat order the rib entre'. It looked pretty awesome.

Marley's is one of our favorites, it's a great place to bring people from out of town with the colorful decor and great menu. It's also a nice place for locals to hang out. The menu always has specials and the food does not disappoint.

We had 3 fabulous Early Bird meals. My favorite, flank steak dinner. The men loved crab cake meal & stuffed flounder,, Service always extra special..Love the island feel..

We had the early bird menu...selection was varied and the choices we made were excellent...the She Crab soup is very good, the broiled fish dinner was substantial and tasty. The fried fish dinner was also very good. We were going to a show and the staff was very efficient in providing timely service. The only negative was we needed to change tables because the air conditioning was blowing right on us and it was very cold. Our server was most love,y and accommodating!

Very good meal...grilled grouper. Only thing missing from the menu was hush puppies but that’s being nitpicky.

The food was fantastic! Everyone at our table of 8 enjoyed their meal; this includes my mom who doesn't like seafood, my sister who doesn't eat meat and my niece who is extremely picky. We make time to come here every time we visit HHI.

Excellent food selection and varied beyond typical flavors. My vegan friend loves the veggies and rice served in a pineapple. I enjoyed the gluten free roll and butter as well as the flourless chocolate cake! The non- issue diners loved their meal as well. They had the lobster roll (served hot with butter) and the goat cheese appetizer which was huge!

We just discovered this place last year and are so sorry it took us so long to visit. Very good selection, and everything we have had there has been very good. This is one of the SERG restaurants, and we have liked every one of them we have visited. We now make Marleys Island Grille a part of every visit to the island.

We had a great casual dinner. Blackened mahi sandwich was great and the she crab soup was some of the best I have ever had and as a native South Carolinian I have had many references points!!! The best part was our server Rick. He was the best. Everything you would expect in outstanding service and then some. It is phenomenal to receive Michelin standard service from Rick in a casual island grill!!!

We had a great time at Marley’s meeting with friends that we haven’t seen in years. The Atmosphere was perfect for the reunion, we could hear each other talk, the waiter was very attentive, and the food was delicious. We would definitely eat here again!!

We had reservations and were seated right away. Our waitress, Natalie, was excellent. We were not rushed, even though it was busy. I had the Mahi-mahi tacos served with fresh vegetables rice and beans. Everything was delicious. My husband had the Seafood casserole, said it was delicious also. We will definitely be back!

We dined on a Friday night, October 4, 2019. Our server was very good and the food (with the exception of the first batch of rolls which were virtually inedible because they had been over baked) was very tasty. The restaurant is noisy, so not a good place for people like us with hearing aids!

Our entrees were surprisingly gourmet for a family oriented/large group oriented restaurant. Service was very attentive even for a Friday evening. I had the mesquite grilled monk fish on a ginger/carrot purée with roasted red potatoes topped with green pea shoots. It was delicious! My husband had the glazed salmon with the mango chutney, jasmine rice and green beans, which he enjoyed very much also. There were simpler choices which would account for the restaurants popularity with families with children. There were some good wine choices even though the specialty cocktails were more highlighted.

Service and atmosphere are nice, but the quality of the food was below average and the prices are above average. There are better options for a quality meal.

Our server, Chris was outstanding! He was gregarious and his knowledge of the menu was very very good. He was pleasant and courteous at all times. The food was terrific. The She Crab soup is the best I’ve had on the island. 3 of us had the price fix menu which was a real value. We may go back again!

Ordered from the Early Bird Menu. Food was very good, we really enjoyed the she crab soup. The only downside was that we had to move into the interior from being seated outside since the flies seemed to really attack once our seafood dinners arrived.

Great service but food missed the mark this time. Fish & Chips and clams & shrimp were too well done. Burnt clams are unacceptable! Better luck next time, I hope!

The food was delicious: coconut shrimp appetizer-large, fresh shrimp nicely seasoned, and the grilled scallops with Kailua reduction was especially yummy! Tres leches bread pudding was a perfect dessert to share and a scrumptious ending to a good meal. The outdoor seating was comfortable, but if you’re looking for a quiet outdoor0 meal, you’ll be disappointed; the sounds of children playing with large blocks nearby can be noisy.

Fantastic food! I am always impressed when I eat here - the food arrives HOT as they use a dedicated “food runner” to ensure your order does not sit! Last night our awesome server Rick made sure we knew about the specials and I had the Bronzed Mahi which was just to die for. You can’t go wrong at this restaurant- it’s great!
