Description: 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.

We have been to The Black Marlin several times. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, good but not great food. My husband and I both ordered the Filet; he ordered his Rare, I ordered mine Medium Rare. His came out Medium, Mine came out Medium Well; not even close to what we ordered. We returned them.... after a short wait, we received new meals. They were over cooked again but this time we ate them as they were not as bad as before and we were hungry. How does a chef/cook overcook a meal twice? They comped my dinner but we would have gladly paid for a meal cooked properly. Server was apologetic but dinner was ruined. Also, staff wore masks but a lot of guests did not.

Fantastic Birthday Dinner! Calamari & Fried Green tomatoes were delicious! Snapper Asiago was so good! My son had Reef & Beef and said it was great! We will be back! Thanks for the fantastic service!

We truly enjoy every meal from this place! it's worth the visit. Their specialty is seafood and lots of it!. Every dish is top quality/gourmet, you won't go wrong in this place. From the servers to the meal presentation, it's a gem of a place to be at. A favorite dish? it's hard to pick one since the executive chef makes every dish to perfection. For starters, you must try the mussels appetizers, their daily soups (any of them) it's all delicious. The prices for the dishes are very reasonable. We will definitely be returning.

My husband & I had a delicious dinner at the bar & even tho it was quite busy the service was great and the bar was clean. This was our first dinner out since COVID and the employees all wore masks and the eating areas & bathroom was clean. Will be back soon.

We sat at the bar and was having a great dinner and service with social distancing. Then a couple sat next to us in the taped off area with no stools so we assume they brought them over. We said something to them and they became obnoxious. We then asked our waitress why they were able to sit in a taped off area and she replied they could not control that. We quickly paid our bill and left and on our way out we asked the couple why they felt they could sit there and got a lot of nasty comments. Since The Black Marlin cant' control the mandated distance we will not go back. Too bad.
