“Dinner with a View!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Wonderfully prepared and beautifully displayed food. We enjoyed our meals literally on the beach, while watching the waves crash on the shore and a full moon shine on the water. I had the sea scallops and my husband had the braised beef tenderloin. The food was phenominal and the service was great!

“Same as above”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is the exact same location as "The Tides BLU Beach Bar & Restaurant." Not sure why there are two different entries here on TripAdvisor....

“Meets all needs and desires”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The casual snacks and meals were delicious, served with good speed and quality. The more formal reception we had later was handled perfectly and professionally, with all needs met and exceeded!

“Service a++”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

The food was decent at Blu but portions are on the small side. Their chicken over "bread salad" was chicken served over croutons, the chicken was actually tasty.
I may have rated this place as average but the incredible service and beach atmosphere warrant a higher rating. Our waiter was beyond compare!
