“Freshest Fish Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2011

Not exactly fine dining, but then you don't eat there for that. The fish is incredibly fresh and desserts are delicious. Excellent fishmongers! Highly recommend!

“not a large dining area, but fantastic seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2009

The Blue Marlin isn't a typical seafood restaurant in more ways than one. It's so much better in their quailty of food, but doesn't cater as much to an eat-in crowd. I do not fault them for this since it's actually nice to have a little place kind of tucked away from other busy Lynchburg establishments. Although it has a large local following so don't be surprised if they're pretty busy for lunch. It has a few small tables and a counter/bar area that can probably accommodate about a dozen people. They have a full assortment of seafood available (really the best in town), a deli case with lots of unique salad & dessert choices, and a nice lunch menu consisting of things like sandwiches, fish platters & steamer items. The prices are good, and the service is always quick & nice. The parking lot is small, but the overflow can find spots on the street.

“Quality Seafood in Lynchburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2009

At last I found a good crab cake in Lynchburg ! This place is really good ! Fresh seafood cooked well and quickly. It is a litlle bit expensive for the amonts but it is soooo good that I don't mind paying more for it. The atmosphere is extremly casual but that's ok too. Kind of like at the beach ...without the sand !

“Great for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2008

We originally started going to Blue Marlin to purchase high quality seafood to cook at home. Then they started serving lunch....yum! Try the fish tacos. Everything is fresh and made to order. Despite the fact that they are still a seafood market, I have never, never noticed a fish smell in the restaurant.

“Best seafood you'll get anywhere away from the beach.”

Oh, man was this great. And, it is not a well kept secret either. There was a steady stream of customers the whole time I was there.
