The Black Marlin Bayside Grill
Great food! Great atmosphere! Great service!
The food was okay, but not great. Our waitress was kind and attentive. We sat inside which was a big mistake. No ambiance whatsoever. Just loud and busy
Our server Roger was excellent. Food was wonderful. So glad we selected Black Marlin for our anniversary outing.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience. The hush puppies with pimiento cheese dip is the best thing ever. Everyone left full & happy!
Absolutely, we enjoyed a fabulous evening with friends visiting HHI! Black Marlin had the perfect food selections to accommodate everyone in our party. . . after our delicious dinner it was simply a question which nights we going to return!
We love the Early Bird specials. The food is amazing and the value is really good! And I’m picky!!!
6 guests and 6 different excellent meals, service was pleasant and efficient, food and drinks the best!
Have been there several times in the past and had good food. Tonight's meal was a disaster. The meals were cold when served. Should have sent everything back, did send baked potatoes back. They seem to have perfected the art of frying seafood soggy and then served them cold as well. Be a long time before we go back if ever. Too many good seafood restaurants on Hilton Head island to waste an evening with bad food.
My family loved The Black Marlin! The atmosphere is wonderful -- we sat outside and it was perfect. We came early, so we were able to order off the early dining menu, which was a great deal! We will definitely come back here when we return to HHI.
Out of town visitor
I am local. We were treated like tourists. We wanted to enjoy our cocktails. The waiter came to us twice asking for our order - we asked to wait. The third time (within a span of 15 minutes) he demanded our order.
We will not return.
Excellent Mothers Day brunch. Seated promptly, service was great and the food was very good. Look forward to going again.
Great experience and good!!
Excellent food! Enjoyed listening to the music. Walking distance from where we stayed.
Wonderful dining experience! Highly recommend to anyone visiting or living in HHI! The atmosphere outside was perfect. Live music, great breeze and lively place! Highly recommend the Sweet Heat Mahi-Mahi!
First visit, while on vacation and loved it. Waitress was great and the value was also good. I had the scallops and loved them. Highly recommend
It was a birthday dinner. The food was wonderful and the service superb. Once they knew it was a birthday, they comped the dessert. Very nice
Went to this restaurant with a group of 11. We were pleasantly surprised with an early bird menu that provided very good value. The food was delicious, our server was fabulous and did a great job looking after our group. We are definitely coming back and will recommend this restaurant to friends and family!
Sat a high top near bar and enjoyed the atmosphere, service and views. Prices were excellent and loved the variety of food choices. We always pick food that we don’t get at home and the quality was outstanding. Can’t wait to go back.
A friend recommended Black Marlin and this was an excellent choice!! Reservation was held and outside requested seating was immediate upon arrival. Patio seating on a very nice evening just before sunset. Many drink & food specials and regular menu items were great. Sorry we left no room for dessert. Definitely be back again.
The lobster tails were delicious. The server was very pleasant and helpful.
Only complaint was that our waitress seemed to forget about us as our meal progresses. We ordered glasses of wine that came at the end of our meal and we had to literally flag her down to get our bill. Food was really good, and fish was very fresh.
I have dined here several times and always enjoy The Black Marlin. It is a good place for drinks and casual dining. The outdoor tables may be noisy, but the patio is lively and fun with live music and a bar that may be part of the restaurant with which they share the patio.
I ordered the Shrimp Po Boy and my friend had the Fried Shrimp Basket. We both had sweet potato fries and I had a side of cole slaw. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, but my friend was not happy with her food. She was comparing it to The Old Oyster Factory dinner we had the night before. I thought this an apples and oranges comparison as one is fine dining and the other a casual, upbeat, fun place. Each is excellent for its genre.
Very laid back environment for a casual meal. Inside is nice and quiet, and outside is more festive with a band playing island type music.
Very nice selection for Early Bird Dining. Good food and OUTSTANDING service. Ask for Roger!
We were a party of 8. Attentive service, lovely location with pretty view of water. The food was average for HHI, but really did enjoy the pimento cheese. I would return again for the view and drinks, but not for the food. It really was a nice place to meet a group for our get together. Had live music that night.
No water view. Condos block water view but we looked at the bridge or schrubs. Service very good. Food good but not 4 star. Too many better places for the same $ on HHI.
Brunch was fabulous!
Very good seafood, and a great atmosphere. We ate indoors where it's easy to have a conversation with your dinner guests, and it was very nice. We have eaten outside as well, and that's very cool, but is a little louder.
The hurricanes are the best!
My second time at The Black Marlin. The service was great and no complaints about the food. Will definitely visit the next time in HHI.
Must try sushi nachos for a unique tasting experience. My daughter had the shrimp burger and loved it.
Great food! It was my wife an I’s first time visiting HHI an some friends told us we had to try the Black Marlin very satisfied with the food, the service an the atmosphere, we will be visiting again!
Service was fast and accurate. Waiter knew his stuff
Food was just ok. I had oysters and grouper. Oysters were ok. Grouper was over cooked.
Drinks and food were very good. Service was good too but the outside area allowed dogs and several of the Waite staff would walk by an pet the dogs. Don’t think they washed hand after. Not sure I like having food or silver ware handled this way.
Great food and service for our table of 8 on Easter Sunday afternoon! For some it was their first time and I know everyone will be back!
ALWAYS A GOOD LOCATION AND MEAL. WILL BE BACK.
HAD A VERY NICE EASTER . SERVICE IS ALWAYS EXCELLENT.
Brad our server was great ! Didn’t miss an order
As always, food was fresh and delish! Our service was just as good. Our family enjoyed our Easter brunch!
Favorite brunch place on HHI
