Had a great juicy, nice hamburger here. The service is great and the seafood is good also. Like the atmosphere inside and out. Best place on Bridge Street by far. I only wish they were open for lunch.

My wife and I have had the occasion to dine at this small grill on beautiful Anna Maria Island, just outside Bradenton, Florida several times now. I can promise you, we'll be back as soon as humanly possible. Although it's a fairly lengthy drive from our place in Venice, each time we've visited we come away more impressed than our... More

A 5 bubble is rare from me. This is a must stop on your list. The stone crabs were in season and prepared to perfection. Service was a 5 out of 5. We all had different choices and all 6 of us enjoyed our selections.

Our sister-in-law suggested the Blue Marlin, so we didn't know what to expect. We were very pleased with her selection and I'm not surprised that it is rated as the #1 restaurant in Bradenton Beach. All four of us had stone crabs that had just come in and weren't even on the menu or listed as a special. They were... More

After using tripadvisor for years I am finally writing my first review because I have been that impressed with the Blue Marlin Grill! My family has dined here 3 times over 2 vacations. All amazing experiences with consistent service. Very accommodating for our family & 2 year old daughter... they bring her goldfish as soon as we are seated. The... More

Shame. Great food. Really great. And good service. Not amazing but good. All spoiled by the behaviour of our waiter. We were at the restaurant as a treat to our friends who are hosting us on Ana Maria Island. The meal had been great. The bill arrived with an add on of 12% which we mistakenly thought was Service. We... More
