    The steaks were delicious. The seafood pasta was very bland. The Shrimp dip appetizer was subpar for such a nice place. The scallops were rather small. The service was great as was the atmosphere. The patio live music was very good also. This was our second time and there is just too much competition to have a few flaws. We certainly will try again and will recommend to others. Sorry for a few complaints, but a few easy changes may improve the dishes. Thx.

    Excellent as always. I love this place--small, quiet and out of the way of a lot of traffic, yet at the center of our entertaining district. Food was exceptional as were the cocktails. Easily, the best culinary experience of farm to table and cocktails in Columbia.

    The Blue Marlin was just ok, but not necessarily a restaurant I would recommend personally nor the guests that were with me. The food was just ok, The seafood gumbo was too spicy with no seafood in it. The green beans that came with the Mahi fish were more than just al dente. They needed to be cooked just a little longer. The seafood platter was ok. However my petite Shrimp and Grits bowl was fine. The best part of the meal was the dessert: Creme Brulle Cheesecake and Key lime pie.

    The food quality speaks well for itself. But, the service was 2nd to none. Our server Trey was just the perfect mix of attentive, pleasant, and engaging. And, he was well supported by the supplemental staff. Very highly recommended.

Discover South Carolina

Charleston takes southern charm to a whole new level. In fact, the city snagged the #1 spot on Travel & Leisure’s World’s Best Cities list in 2016. The combination of elegant historic architecture, cobblestone streets, balmy weather, and southern cuisine makes it a winner. Along the South Carolina coast, the resort towns of Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head are full of restaurants serving Atlantic seafood and new American specials. Further inland, Greenville is gaining a reputation for being a burgeoning restaurant hub of the south.
