The Black Marlin Bayside Grill
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.
Food was good our server was great. Six of us all enjoyed our meal
We always visit the Black Marlin when staying in Hilton Head Island. It is one of our favorites. When the weather is good, we sit outside to enjoy the water views, particularly before sunset. It rained this time, but the outdoor patio is covered with heaters. Very nice time with an excellent dinner. Service was prompt and friendly.
The food was great. I asked for a booth in reservations. I did not get one.
Awesome as always
If you like fresh well prepared fish this is your place
Wonderful wait staff
The Black Marlin has become our favorite "go to" restaurant. We love the early bird dining - no crowds and beautiful view, great food and wine - and never a wait. thank you for a great experience!
Excellent restaurant! The food, cocktails and the service was top notch! Highly recommended!
New Years Day dinner and our last night together in HHI.
We had a great lunch at Black Marlin. The service was great and the food meet our expectations.
Food and ambience were great. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely return.
Food was excellent, waiter Brett did a great job. The best food item this night was the Twin Fillet Oscar, cooked perfectly and very large portion - person who had this rated it the best steak he's had out in quite a while. Seafood items were good - featured grouper was a bit thin and overcooked a couple minutes. The bread was excellent, as it was last time we were here.
Everything was great, unfortunately there were several screaming kids around us. Next time going at a later time may be better :)
The food was delicious, service was excellent, food arrived quickly. We were able to get a reservation on NYE, though earlier than originally wanted. Overall good experience.
Excellent all the way around.
Excellent service. Great experience.
Great food and service
The food was good as usual.
Had brunch but it was just like more a breakfast and we drove a half hour to get there. All was good but not worth the drive.
Service was excellent! Our waiter Brett even helped us save by giving us their coupon book to save 50% off an entree. Food had great taste and presentation
Our first time at Black Marlin, but it won't be our last. Great food, excellent service.
there were 4 of us and everyone enjoyed their meals, they cleaned their plates and said they would return.
Brunch at the Black Marlin is always a good way to start a Saturday. We had a reservation for 10:45, and it was quiet. Dan saw to it we had a nice table and took our drink order. I ordered a spicy Bloody Mary and Janice a Pineapple Mimosa which she said was very good. My Crab Cake Benedict featured an ample portion of crab and eggs done just right. Janice chose the Salmon Benedict, equally well presented. Dan’s attention to our meal was much appreciated, and our coffee cups were kept full and hot. We enjoyed the warm reception and service. We will, of course, return on our next trip to HHI.
Food & service were very good.
Ordered fish with a wonderful pecan sauce, perfectly cooked veggies & tasty beans & rice.
Great family restaurant as we had four adults and two young children and well managed by staff - from seating to serving children in timely fashion! As always, food was great, love the seared grouper! Highly recommend!
We live in Bluffton and have been coming to the Black Marlin many times, usually when we have out of town guests. It remains among our favorite restaurants, and THE best for sea food. The only reason I gave the food only 4 stars is that I was a bit disappointed with my order of Mussels. I wondered if there was a new chef in the kitchen. Don't get me wrong: They were delicious, but it was mostly the broth that was different from what it used to be and one of the reasons I savor this dish. They were tiny, beautifully arranged mussels, but a lot of work eating.
They used to be the larger ones in a heavenly broth. This time it was very milky and was missing that extra special taste. We were a party of 5 and everyone was very happy with their choice. So, overall the meal was a success, as always, and we will definitely be back.
One of our favorites places!
Always try to dine at least once each trip to Hilton Head. It was a very quiet night during the “low” season, and we made a 6:45 reservation as nights start early this time of year (daylight savings time was over). Janice decided on crab legs and l ordered the clam linguini. Crab legs were well prepared—not over cooked as you may find at other places. My linguini was savory with tender clams. Just right for a light entree on a cool evening. Topped it off with a slice of key lime pie for us to split. Was a very nice way to finish our meal. Special coupon for half off on second entree was a bonus.
Food was delicious and the service was great. Seating could have been more comfortable. We were near a door and every time it opened we got cold draft.
As always the crab clusters with broccoli and sweet potato fries were the best!
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
