As a long time Stuart resident I have been to the Black Marlin many times and have always left satisfied with the food and service. Several nice fish dishes and generous drinks though the wine selection is somewhat limited. Nice bar area with a friendly and attentive staff.

Great cozy little Bar and restaurant located in the center of historic Downtown Stuart. Happy hour that includes 2 for 1s on wine and drinks as well as appetizers as low as $6 from 4:00pm-6:00pm daily. Known for our professional staff, great meal options, and well made cocktails, this is the perfect place to come for a great experience in Downtown Stuart.
