Saw good reviews so we decided to give it a try. Had reservations so did not have to wait for a table. Didn’t seem to be much of a wait as we were leaving either though—and this is one of the busiest weeks on HHI.
Starters were yum—the seafood nachos as featured on Food Network were good. The soft shelled crab was amazing. And Baja tacos—both fish and shrimp were good.
The broiled seafood platter was a huge disappointment at $28. Two of us had that and both were disappointed—way too much time under the heat lamp so it was tough and chewy. Broiled shrimp good while baked potato was yum. Stuffed flounder was average.
Sorry Black Marlin...too many great seafood places on the island to come back.

Thank you for dining with us and taking the time to leave us a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your meals but am sorry you found the Seafood Medley disappointing. We take pride in delivering everyone great food and service and I am sorry that we failed a few in your party. I'd love to invite you back for another meal to deliver you items from our menu that everyone in your party enjoys. Please call 843 785 4950 and ask for Mac, I look forward to hearing from you!

We started off with a peach daiquiri and pina colada which were both amazing! We had the seafood artichoke dip for appetizer and loved it! Ate flavorful fish tacos topped with a delicious pico de gallo. Beautiful scenery and excellent prices made this one of the favorite spots for the week.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We did the early bird special and the food was delicious. My husband had the low country boil and I had the steak and shrimp. It was all perfect.

6 of us made reservations for the patio to celebrate 2 birthdays. Our server was Amy and she was very attentive and pleasant. Several of us started out with the Bayside Seafood Chowder. It was full of fish, clams, shrimp, scallops and clams. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra dollar to get a bowl over the cup. Hubby had the Pecan Brown Butter Cod and was very impressed. Presentation was great. I had the Sweet Heat Atlantic Salmon with a fruit salsa over black beans and rice. Oh My Goodness! It was terrific! The other 4 were as impressed with their dinners as we were. For the birthday celebration Amy brought out Key Lime Pie and Creme Brûlée. Could not have been a more perfect experience with our friends. Thank you Black Marlin Staff!

This was our 1st visit to the Black Marlin. It won't be our last. The food was good. And a very large early bird menu. Service was good. A very enjoyable dinner.
