I love to get take out seafood salads here. The shrimp salad is especially good. They also do wonderful green and side salads. last time we went they had a great quinoa and artichoke salad. These change ofter and run out daily. The fish is fresh and wonderful, which is amazing considering the location! The service can be very slow... More

Excellent seafood to buy and take home to cook. You can dine there early or go to their other restaurant, Dahlia which is outstanding!!! Love the Blue Marlin. You will pay premium prices for the fresh fish but you will get premium fish!

I have been to Blue Marlin several times; however, it has been over a year since my last visit. On my most recent visit, i was surprised at the changes. We always get the Oyster Po' Boys, which consisted of almost a dozen oysters on a hoagie roll. On our most recent visit, everything has changed. First the Oyster Po'... More

We called 2 orders in for pickup, it was a total of 4 catfish po boy sandwiches and a small order of shrimp. When we picked the food up and returned home, to our disappointment only one of the plates were correct along with the shrimp, but the other 3 plates weren't catfish po boys, but were shrimp po boys....

I drove through some seedy areas to get to the place after seeing good reviews online. They only serve take out for lunch so I walked into a seafood store and the only way to get a meal was to go to the restaurant next door which was crowded and not the type of place I was looking for.

Called to make reservations for a birthday party because the guest of honor wanted seafood and none of the 16 people in my party was familiar with Lynchburg seafood restaurants. The Blue Marlin had excellent reviews. From the outside it looked outdated and slightly run down. Staying optimistic we went ahead inside and was seated. The room where we were... More

Need GPS for out of towners. You may pass through some shady areas, but fear not because this place is OK. The crowd is local, friendly, and noisey that just adds to the atmosphere. A fish market is located adjacent to the pub. We got there on Sat at 8PM and were seated immediately. We heard music coming from the... More

I went here for lunch with a party of five and we all opted for fish sandwiches. Two swordfish, one blackened and one grilled. Two tuna, both grilled. One grilled haddock. Everyone thought that it was the best fresh fish sandwich they ever had! Just a hole in the wall but they can fix a great fish sandwich.
