We arranged a destination wedding at the Tides in Folly Beach, SC....We decided to have our wedding dinner with our family at BLU since it was right there and so convenient. The dinner was superb and the service was wonderful! Everyone enjoyed it!

You have me hooked on shrimp and grits! Awesome!! Everyone in our party had a delicious dinner from grilled red snapper, grilled shrimp, grilled scallops to seafood gumbo. Did not include salad or bread with the meal but was plenty filling!

Decided to take wife and Mother-in-Law to Blu Restaurant for Easter Buffet after checking Menu etc on their website. 30.95 per person advertised but they actually charged 35.95 per person. Advertised braised leg of lamb but was non-existent. Tiny 5oz tea glasses were never filled and no ice.. I'm sure because they packed tables anywhere and everywhere in the lobby, entranceways, and side hallway so they decided quantity over quality, so they should have at least charged the advertised price. I tipped well since it was a special day but likely will not go back.

This is a nice choice for appetizers or a meal. It is located right off the beach and is usually very busy. It can be noisy with loud music on the weekend.

I can't say much about the sit down restaurant but the outdoor Tiki bar has an awesome day time vibe. We had a group of 20 on a bachelor party and ended up staying at this bar for a whole day after surfing. The bartenders were fun and kept up with our pace of eating/drinking. It turns into a bit more formal at night but we were ready to leave by 5pm anyways.

It's a bit pricey but you can't beat the location and waterfront view.
