The Black Marlin Bayside Grill
Wife ordered a grouper dish that is a standard on the menu. It had a horrible “fishy” taste that just ruined her appetite. They graciously gave her a replacement salad. Later our server told the chef said it was a ‘game cut’. Yuk! Chef should have informed the servers.
Great food best all around Hilton Head
Fish is amazing
Food was delicious!! Scallops melted in your mouth. Terrific service!!
Wonderful meal with great service.
Great meal excellent atmosphere
Salmon Benedict was delicious and I would recommend it. The atmosphere was very pleasant and service quite good.
Our large party of 18 was very pleased with the food and service. Several enjoyed the monk fish and the stuffed flounder dishes. We will come again.
Amazing food and service. We had a great meal . Reccomend it very highly
Great food and great service at a reasonable price.
Very nice restaurant and setting. Good food and service.
Excellent as always
So many options from fun drinks to appetizers to main course meals
We love their fresh from the oven bread and seafood chowder !
Had the monkfish prepared with brown butter and it was soooo yummy !
Best meal we’ve had there in a long tine.
Very very loud, felt as though we were yelling at each other across the room
Wasn't busy and the service was very slow. Food was warm not hot.
Been eating here for years, is in my top 3 restaurants on the island. I have always loved the food, wait staff and the view. Friday night it was just ok - waitress was pleasant enough but the food wasn't up to its usual 5 stars. There were 4 of us and everyone agreed it was just ok. Will still recommend it, was just a little disappointed...
We’ll be back even though waiter had a bit of an attitude
Good food and service for the price. The early dining menu has good selections. Very nice location and casual but tasteful décor.
We were there for the early bird dinner( before 5:30) atmosphere was very nice, sat outside. Meal was very reasonable and very tasting. Save room for the cinnamon roll and ice cream dessert, very tasty
Our group of six enjoyed dinner at the Black Marlin last week. We were seated outside where they had heaters and vinyl windows and it was very comfortable on a cool evening. The varied menu of seafood dishes offers something for everyone. The Grouper Provençal is my favorite and always is very good. If you have not eaten here you will not be disappointed. Kudos to our server Sam who did a great job!
Beautiful outdoor setting, great food and drinks.
The hamburgs were just okay. Only counter service is available.
Thanks for the review and for joining us! You may, however, have us mixed up with another restaurant, we do not provide counter service at all, and are a full-service restaurant. Thanks again!
Excellent Sunday brunch. Great outdoor dining. Top notch food. Attentive service.
Food was excellent, had a great table outside. Nina was a great server.
Made reservations here on our last night on the island. We were seated within 5 minutes at table overlooking the bay. Lively atmosphere from nearby bar. Our server was very welcoming, friendly and efficient. Had a fantastic seafood trio as well as the grouper and both were well prepared. Had a great anniversary dinner. This restaurant was recommended by a local and we hope to visit again on our future trips to Hilton Head. Well done!
The Black Marlin has been our favorite seafood restaurant for several years. It never disappoints. When we have friends or family visiting, we always take them there (IF they are seafood lovers). This time was no exception. However, it was a warm Friday evening, and outside was music and crowds all around, and a lot of noise - not our type of dining venue, although we like their outdoor seating. So we had a table inside and that was very nice and quiet.
The food is always top-notch and we all enjoyed what we had. I love the Mussels Messina and would order them even without the mussels - the broth alone is worth it. The wait staff is always efficient, friendly, and will readily accept changes to menu items, such as combinations of several types of oysters etc. All around a wonderful place to have a great time eating out.
We just left Hilton Head Island. We ate out essentially every lunch and dinner and did not have a bad meal anywhere. We chose outside at The Black Marlin. We had a view of water and boats between two buildings. Food was exceptional as was the service. On our list to return to sometime.
Great food and ambiance!
We were visiting Hilton Head a and looking for good seafood with a view. Made a last minute reservation on Open Table and they made an effort to give us a nice outdoor table. Had the seafood trio. It was delicious,
We had a Birthday celebration with out of town family that was absolutely wonderful! Something everyone could enjoy, whether seafood or none everything was fabulous!
It was a slow day and so was the service. Food was good, but $40 for lunch? Place was empty for lunch on a Friday. Might try it again at night to give them another chance.
Great fast service. Really good food. Well pleased.
The wait staff great, as was the view. The food, a different story. I had a grilled chicken sandwich. The chicken had no taste and was almost impossible to bite into. The fish and chips had more batter than fish. I will admit the fries and coke slaw were good. Too many good places on the island; we will not be back
Enjoyed a very good meal on the patio. The peel and eat shrimp were super fresh, just delicious. The chowder was fantastic and had ample fresh seafood with fresh herbs. Shared a mahi mahi sandwich, cooked perfectly. I would go here again. Water view is just ok, food is far above average.
Ate there on 10/02/19.Good food, good atmosphere, good service, good views.
Excellent seafood meals, friendly staff, nice atmosphere
Great food, service, and atmosphere. Wonderful experience.
We had wonderful salads, mine a rasberry dressing over good greens, nicely cut up, with candied walnuts. I'm now eating salads everywhere here at HHi, I didn't know a salad could be so good, so satisfying! No midnight snack for me, not overfilling, just right! I've never had anything like it! (Well, what the heck!, I live in Germany. Veronika's Asian sesame dressing and grilled chicken strips. She loved it and ..I did help her finish it off.
Italian Pinot Grigio was good and... reasonable! The server, Maria was pleasant, helpful with the outdoor fans and got a good tip from us.
David, lives in Bavaria
a reliable location for food and service - good for a meet up with friends/family -
Not as good as 2 years ago. Service was attentive and friendly. Seafood Pasta Al not much sauce and not as much seafood. Flounder was good and my Scallops were drowning in butter. OK but just OK.
Great atmosphere, great service, awesome food! Took my in-laws with us who have visited HH many times and they were very impressed. Nice to be able to book and make requests on their website.
