Alaskan King Crab Legs

I went here with my wife for dinner and we had the Alaskan king crab legs. They were absolutely amazing. They tasted as if they were just caught less than 5 minutes before we ate them. I highly recommend these to anyone who loves crab legs. We will definitely be coming back for this delicious meal again. New favorite seafood restaurant!

Free-Flowing Champagne

Saturday brunch! OMG! Champagne served in a glass with a creamer container of orange juice! Perfect! You can choose the amount you want to mix! Bloody Mary! OMG! The best, they are not kidding! So smooth with slab of bacon marinating in it! BRITTANY! Joyful, informative, inclusive, so delightful! She is the BEST! Every dish was hot, tasty, and a better twist on the standards usually offered at other restaurants. The corned beef hash was unbelievable! The Texas Hangover Pie was awesome, as was The Widow Maker! We are looking forward to future visits for lunch and dinner!

Diablo Shrimp (3)

This is heaven on earth. The shrimp are huge and mouth watering. The sauce has s nice spicy zing to it but not enough to scorch your mouth. I will order anything with polenta and this one does not disappoint. The bar portion is plenty for one person, without anything else, but with the yummy salads or the chowder you can't go wrong ordering that as well. Yummm

Basil Greyhound

Tried a bunch of their food (prime rib, burger, french dip, etc), but my favorite is their bar! Macy is awesome. We followed her from Blue Water Grill, but she quickly made Black Marlin one of our favorite hang out spots! There's live music and there's always a crowd. It's not one of those Vegas-club-crowded where you have a line 10 deep to go to the bathroom, but a good crowd! Fun times, good music, good food, and even better drinks :) We're actually going there tonight!

Scallops & Shrimp

Among other things, we ordered the scallop and Shrimp Dinner. Holy Moly! If you think you've had great shrimp before, you're going to be in shock. This set the bar for the best shrimp I've ever had. Massive! Perfectly cooked. Delicious. The scallops were good but the shrimp was the star of the meal. If you haven't been to Black Marlin it's worth checking out. Good cocktails, great food, nice environment. We had almost everything on the menu and nearly everything was great. Excited for our next visit.

Ruby Rare Ahi

This Ahi plate is one of the best I've ever had. The sauce is light and flavorful, but th best part of course is the Ahi. Prepared perfectly. I highly rrecommend it.

Marlin House Salad

Actually also had the blackened salmon sandwich and the wharf style fish chowder. Visitors from Ventura County. The Black Marlin was recommended by a friend and neighbor who previously lived in the OC prior to college. Our waitress Maggie was great and friendly. Will most definitely return.

Corned Beef Benedict

If I had been paying better attention when I ordered this, I may have passed it by ... but by shear luck, it came and boy oh boy, was it ever delicious! Lucky me! Try it, you might just like it too. The corned beef was moist, lean and tender and the poached egg was cooked to perfection.

Taquitos of the Day (3)

Oh. My. Gosh. One of my favorite things! I love love love the Taquitos! And the sauces they pair them with?? Come ON. I know most would tack on a margarita, but I'm partial to the Old Fashioned. No one makes a better OF than the Black Marlin!

On the Half Shell...

My husband and I just moved to the area and kept hearing about the Black Marlin so we ended up going in on a Monday night. We decided to sit at the bar since we didn't know if we wanted a full meal or to share some appetizers. We started off with a dozen oysters, clam chowder and a salad. Wow!! We both agreed it's the best clam chowder we have had in years! So we couldn't stop there. We tried the taquitos and shared the fish special of the day. Everything was amazing including the service. To our delight we happened to come in on magic night so we also had entertainment with our dinner. This is now one of our favorite local spots! We are so glad we found the Black Marlin, see you guys again soon.

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Cajun Seafood pasta is amazing! The sauce is very tasty and a good consistency. It's the perfect dish if you love seafood and can't decide on one protein. This with the garlic toast & some Sauvignon Blanc is one of my favorite meals to treat myself to.

Caesar Salad

My family and I come here all the time, we usually just get some appetizers (which are always amazing) and a few beers, and watch the band play! It's so much fun, we are literally heading there right now!

Seared Jumbo Scallops (3)

One of the best scallop (seafood) dishes I've ever had! Be sure to order a very delicious lemon drop martini and save room for their key lime pie. A little slice of heaven! And did I mention their amazing service? It doesn't get any better....they set the bar for amazing food and service!!
