The Black Marlin Bayside Grill
Our favorite restaurant. Dan did a great job.
Excellent place to hang out and listen to music also!
Great food, great value, GREAT service!!! Kristen was BEYOND WONDERFUL!!!
Superb.ate there all three days
Early bird dining was an excellent value. Wine was good and dinner was excellent.
Went for an early dinner. Service was friendly and fast. Even though my steak wasn’t medium as ordered, they quickly made it right by giving me a second steak done right and it was delicious.
Staff was great. Food was good to very good. Would eat here again.
I am a large person. The Hostess put us in a Booth that was very difficult for me to get into. As I struggled to fit into the booth she just stood there and watched. There were other open tables around and they were not offered. I have to say that this is the first time a Host/Hostess was not mindful of body shape and didn’t recommend comfortable seating. Our Waiter was nice and the food was very good but the experience was terrible and I will not go back!!! Maybe takeout or through a delivery service.
Great meal and awesome service.
Forget one persons food and another order incomplete when brought out. Otherwise, good meal.
Food and service were great. A very loud threesome ruined an otherwise excellent Valentine’s celebration.
With SO many restaurants to choose from on Hilton head Island, the black marlin really needs to focus on sprucing up their overall decor and space. The interior needs serious modernization. At first I was upset that it was Valentine’s Day and we had a reservation and we were seated on their enclosed patio space. It is literally four plastic walls with no flowers, no ambience, no decor whatsoever, not even a candle on the table. Just people and tables. When I went inside to use the restroom and saw what the inside looked like, I was relieved we were actually outside!! Our server was attentive and the food was okay. Won’t be rushing back though.
Without a doubt one of THE LOUDEST restaurants in which we’ve ever dined. We were seated in an area with a concrete floor and it was like being in a pool hall. Carrying on a conversation was impossible. Food was overpriced and mediocre. Service was fine. Wouldn’t recommend.
Dinner on Valentine's Day was very good. However, we weren't expecting a group of 12 and another foursome at the next table who were all terribly loud. I would suggest that on such an evening perhaps couples could have seating in a separate area so they can hold a conversation.
The outdoor seating was warm which was great for a chilly Valentines Day dinner but the view we had was the side of the neighboring building so we could "kinda see" the colors of the sunset under the bridge. The seafood boil was delicious.
Snow crab legs are the best , period. We love this place. Mac is doing a great job.
Primavera pasta was very good. Others has stuffed shrimp and parmesian scallops and were pleased wit both dishes.
The food was excellent, great service from Connor.
The service and food was very good. Waiter was very helpful in explaining our menu options . I would highly recommend this place to our friends.
We were visiting the island for a long, lazy weekend and found the Black Marlin in a hotel magazine. We were very comfortable in the casual environment and were impressed by the menu. The Grouper Daufuskie was outstanding! Our only complaint was the dimwit who thought we should accept dining next to her golden retriever, and that the restaurant was apparently okay with that. Common sense people.
Ordered burger and fries fries were cold and sushi nachos they were terrible and very small amount for the money
Great time, good food and service
Great food excellent service very satisfied 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊
Great place going back soon service great excellent food nice atmosphere
Our waiter was Roger. He was excellent. My husband ordered his favorite meal, Grouper Dafuskie. He loved it. Will definitely go back.
Our favorite restaurant.
Ordered the wrong item this time. We have eaten here many times and the food has always been good.
This time I ordered the Shrimp & Grits - lots of sausage and spicy gravy, 4 shrimp and very little grits.
My husband sticks with the Bayside Sampler for brunch and as I looked across the table, thought I should have done that today.
After spending two wonderful weeks of vacation in Cabo at a fine Mexican resort it was a treat to again dine at one of our favorite Hilton Head Island restaurants and be served wonderfully prepared American food. We were also delighted with the service provided by a young school teacher waitress Morgan. She is always treats us like family and provides impeccable service. It is always a special treat to dine at the Black Marlin.
We have eaten at all four restaurants in that plaza. We like them all.
There were 4 of us and the food was great. We lost our waitress for a long while and had to get the manager to get us refreshers on the wine and ketchup (since the food was brought over and no one to get us condiments). We were put in the middle of the room so it was a little noisy. Not a good place to sit but was not terribly bad. When the weather is nice out, I have sat outdoors and it is very lovely out there. Food was more than enough and delicious. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat despite the little problems we had.
Awesome restaurant. We love it.
Thank you great meal and service
Great as usual!
A group of 12 had brunch there and the service was good. Food taste was very good. Could have came out a little hotter, For a group of twelve they handle the orders quickly. Some wait on the coffee and water. Overall very happy with everything that they did for us.
The food and service were excellent. I had the salmon and vegetables - all were expertly cooked and arranged attractively on the plate. Brett, our server, was friendly, attentive and excellent. thank you for a great evening!
Food is always very good and portions are just right. This is part of the Serge Group restaurants and they are very well managed.
We love the Black Marlin!! We come every January and we always tell our friends that come to Hilton Head to make sure they eat at the Marlin!
Server, sandon, was excellent! Very polite and responsive.
We enjoyed a truly fabulous dinner, everything was perfect!
Overall lousy experience. Food was ok, service not so good. Received check before being offered dessert or coffee. Ordered Port, waitress asked if I wanted it on the rocks. Received a scotch instead, waitress bland bartender. Finally received Port, no apology.
Overpriced for food received, Grouper was overcooked. Not going back and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
