Good food but a hassle. Called early afternoon to see if there was an early bird 11/15/08. Female voice said about 15 menu choices for 9.90. No special time required. Arrived 6:15PM. Server offered us 4 fish specials for 9.90. Female manager informed him policy was changed to no earlybirds on fish after 6:00PM. Server told her no one told him. We ordered and asked to speak to manager. We finished our dinner. Piece of hard plastic in my cauliflower puree. Manager came by to help clear table and I showed her plastic and then said she told me no special time for early birds. She remembered speaking to me on phone and said 1. I never asked about fish specials. (There were none for 9.90 on the printed menu). and 2. Owner changed the policy 4:00PM that afternoon after my phone call. She ascertained 2 of 3 of us ordered fish and took off price of my fish dinner(14.50). Food was delicious but hassle was not appreciated. 87 year old Mother-in-law insisted on taking us out and we wanted to not order expensive food.
Met some out of town guests for dinner last night and it was great. I ordered off the $10 menu and skipped the included dessert because I was full. The tuna sashimi was excellent and so was the service. The decor is top notch, but we had to park 4 businesses up even though the place wasn't all that crowded. Overall an excellent experience, the only tip is for the kitchen to be sure to get all the shells off the shrimp in the scampi, I had a few left on mine.
Dinner for 3 was around $40, a bargain for this type of atmosphere, easily $70 in Tampa or Miami.
Short & Sweet Here......this is a great place to get very good food (& drinks) at a great price. We almost always get great service too.
I regularly go out of my way to go to Marlin Darlin......so many places to chose from living here in Pinellas county, I dont mind driving 30 minutes down there from north county.
Excellent food and service. Place is always clean and music is in the background instead of overpowering. I don t know what the deal is with the patrons that seem to bath in perfume at this place. Oh well, must be Belleair.
