My wife and I surprised her 92 year old mom with a surprise dinner with her other two sons and their wives. She had no idea they were coming so the surprise and the dinner went well. The service was excellent and the food was great as well. It was the first time one of her brothers and his wife had dined at the restaurant so we were happy that they enjoyed what the ordered, the shrimp and grits and the salmon. They said the restaurant was a good choice and would like to come back again when they were in town.

Very nice restaurant. The food was outstanding, service was great, and valued appropriately. Only criticism was it was a little chili for my date. Fantastic place and will definitely go back!

Very mediocre food. Restaurant seems to be in decline. Not very busy. I had the Barramundi...just average. Had a lot of dark spots in the filet. Shrimp in the fried rice inedible. Tasted like ammonia. Hubby had the Ahi tuna. Should have been outstanding given the restaurants name-sake, but it was grocery store quality. Best part of the meal was our server Christian. She was very friendly and attentive.

Came to visit state capital and heard about the She-crab soup. Went to Blue Fin and they did not disappoint, the soup was delicious. We also had the spicy shrimp appetizer, and the black bass with fried sprouts and shrimp fried rice. The whole meal was delicious, rice was so good go an extra portion to go. Our waiter Ryan was FANTASTIC!!!

We had eaten here a few months ago and enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere so we decided to go back. A complete 360. The food was decent but nothing more. The service was not very good, we were rushed and our server even asked if we wanted dessert while 2 people were not even 1/2 way finished. The worst part is that they started Karaoke at around 8 pm and it was loud and awful. Based on this night we will not return.

Food was excellent with lots of choices at moderate prices. Great service. A little “less fancy” than expected. Atmosphere basically an upscale bar and grill. We had dressier clothes on but jeans would b just fine. Great experience!

Delayed service. “We are backed up in kitchen”. They were out of martini glasses. Out of bread!! “bread is hard!”.
Soup tasted so bad that wasn’t eatable. Calamari was out of a cheap frozen bag at local grocery store.
Food was made by amateurs and tasted terribly.
Blu fin is no longer on our list for dining. It’s a shame because they used to be very good.

The food was spot on. Calamari was tender, shrimp and grits excellent, the ahi tuna was great and the pork chop fantastic. Oh, yes the creme brûlée of the evening was really good. Our waitress was super . I will return in a few weeks.

Party of 1 visiting the area on business. I ordered the she crab soup, which was good. The catfish entree, on the other hand, was way too spicy and heavily seasoned. The broth took away from the fish and the seasoning was overpowering.

We visited this place two years ago and it was simply terrible, but a friend suggested that we give them another chance, and I am glad we did. It is not the greatest atmosphere, but with the improved service and food quality, I recommend this restaurant. It is one of the best restaurants in northeast Columbia, SC

Hmmm...I was a bit thrown off by the karaoke going on. Complete distraction from the conversation at the table. I completely thought it was totally different for what I'm use to experiencing throughout dining in Columbia, especially on a Friday evening.

We had a great experience! Promptly seated & the waiter was amazing! The food took a little while but the plating kept it hot the entire time we ate so the wait was not an issue. The Shipwreck beverage was sooo good as were the brussel sprouts. We will definitely be returning!

It took about 30 minutes for our food to arrive and the restaurant wasn't very busy. Also, the mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box. The wait staff was very nice and attentive, though.
