The newly opened Blue Marlin Fish House Restaurant & Adventures is located on the grounds of the original Blue Marlin Smoke House. Owned by the Diefenbach family circa 1938, the former smokehouse was also a trading post where fishing captains could dock their boats along the Oleta River and barter their catch.
In January of 2005, Florida Parks reopened the site as Blue Marlin Fish House. Guests were able to dine on local delicacies while enjoying the flora and fauna of the Oleta River.
In 2020, the Blue Marlin Fish House Restaurant & Adventures reopens its doors once again, under the management of ROAM. As a significant part of our local history, offering breathtaking water views, fresh food options, and top service, Blue Marlin Fish House Restaurant & Adventures will soon become a beloved Miami landmark.
