The Blu Mangrove Grill in Riviera Dunes in Palmetto has 1/2 price appetizers, wine and drinks from 4-7. The nachos are to crave for and the bar tenders are spot on always. Always glad to go there.

Wednesday for the all you can eat lobster & Saturday for the all you can eat King Crab. We are still amazed at the quality of the Seafood and the nice beverages available. Wines were... More

First time eating at this restaurant. My husband and I were there with two other couples. When we arrived there was no one sitting at nearby tables. We placed our drink orders. It took a while to get them but not awful. Gave us all time to look at the menu. When the drinks were brought, we placed our order.... More

This was our first visit since their name change. We thought the staff was very good and the food was great. We went for "all you can eat Lobster" special. It was a great dinning experience with our out of town friends. We plan to go back to check out the rest of the menu.

We have always enjoyed the barbecue at the original restaurant, BluQ Barbecue, so when this restaurant was taken over by the the BluQ group we were thrilled. Not only is the barbecue excellent-fall off the bone ribs - blue cheese cole slaw - waffle fries done perfectly - brisket that melts in your mouth - but this place has gorgeous... More

When my best dining partner said he wanted to try out the Blu Mangrove Grill in Palmetto, I'll have to admit I was a little reluctant after checking with the tripadvisor experts. It was a rainy night anyway so we threw caution to the wind and tried BMG. To our surprise, we dropped in on their All You Can Eat... More

We reside and dock at Riviera Dunes so walking over to the restaurant is VERY convenient. Ownership changed at the beginning of the year and the restaurant/bar is now a destination for tourist and residents. Happy Hour for drinks are from 1 to 7 daily, with 1/2 off all wine (including bottles) and beer and liquor, too good a deal... More
