“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Our first visit (prompted by reviews from Trip Advisor) was memorable. The atmosphere and view were outstanding, exceeded only by the service and food. Fresh, local fish and vegetables, hand made pasta, perfectly cooked shrimp. The portions were large and we had to take the remainders home. A surprising find in this laid back beach front community.

“great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My friends and I stopped into Blu for a Friday after work happy hour. Just the atmosphere alone was so enjoyable and relaxing. Everywhere you turn, the decorations were gorgeous. Oceanfront bar with fireplaces and very comfortable seating. Service was top notch. A great time.

“On the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

My husband had a lunch meeting here. The location is spectacular. Next to the Folly Beach Pier. The patio overlooks the beach. Everyone seemed pleased with their food. I had peel and eat shrimp and it was great. The drinks were good. Cannot beat the view. As the afternoon wore on the crowd got a little rowdier but was fine. The patio is large. Will return.

“seafood heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Their shrimp bruschetta is simply amazing- if you're craving something a little more filling... the shrimp and grits will definitely have you leaving with a smile :)
