My favorite seafood restaurant around!
In a college town with only a few ""upscale"" restaurant options, Blue Marlin is always a top choice when deciding on a special-occasion dining spot! Although the relatively high prices make this eatery a ""once-in-a-while"" restaurant, the food, service, and atmosphere provide a dining experience one is unlikely to find anywhere else in The Vista, or the rest of Columbia for that matter.
In fact, your only issue may be deciding what to order! The crabcakes, firecracker shrimp, pimento cheese, and she-crab soup are all promising and delectable appetizers, and you cannot go wrong with the ""Award Winning"" Shrimp and Grits. Even if you aren't the biggest seafood fan, there are various other options, including the Portabella Mushroom Ravioli.
If you are a local resident, or just stopping in for a quick visit to the Capital City, I highly suggest making it to Lincoln Street in the Vista to try out Columbia's finest seafood experience.
