Reservations required Friday & Saturday nights & strongly recommended all other nights. 

Please arrive for your reservation on time. We are not able to accommodate early arrivals and will only hold your table for ten (10) minutes after your scheduled time. Thank you for your cooperation!

One last note… our 1920s cottage is very small, and seating for large groups is limited.  We only have one table that can seat up to 8 guests.  However, there are options available for private parties and special events.  Please contact us to plan your next gathering at Blue Marlin!


We are located at 121 Bridge Street, Bradenton Beach.

Parking is very limited on Historic Bridge Street. There are numerous public parking areas surrounding the restaurant in ALL directions.  Please allot for 10-15 minutes to secure parking for your reservation.  The free Island Trolley, Uber & The Monkey Bus are all great options for getting to Bridge Street.  There are also several golf cart shuttles that will bring you to & from your car that operate on a “tipping” basis.

Thank you for preparing in advance for parking!
