The atmosphere was great, the service impeccable and the food fantastic. The location was absolutely perfect!

If there was one thing that I would change, it would be the cracked leather on the seat cushions. It sort of takes away from the atmosphere when you are being seated. Once you'reseated, you forget about it, but it would definitely improve the upscale ambiance to have the seating repaired.

I'm sorry but we were not impressed. We just moved here from Charlotte and this place had good reviews so we tried it. My husband and I both were disappointed in the food and drinks. My cocktail tasted like sugar water and the food was very bland. The service was great. We won't be back though.

It was Valentines Day so I was patient with the waiter. However it was still rather slow considering the amount of servers and runners working that night. The food could have used a tad bit more seasoning and it’d be nice if the restaurant offered complimentary rolls while you wait on your food. Once the server finally came to our table, he was very courteous and we were pleased with his service overall aside from the fact that he did take a while to approach us. The cuisine at the restaurant is described as being low country so it’d benefit the restaurant to actually research authentic low country cuisine to add a few more authentic meals to help expand their menu selection.

Blue Fin was a great last minute Valentines dinner spot. Great food, decent wine list and superb service. Don’t be scared off by the outdoor mall setting. One of the best options in the NE/Fort Jackson area.

If you're looking for drinks and great appetizers this is the place. Other than that the entrees are horrible. Overly salted and not fresh.

Second visit for spouse and I. Food and service good, but restaurant beginning to look a little tired. Of concern was also a faint but pungent odor -- like booths had been wiped down with an old damp towel??
Did not mention to the manager (? we assume), who was very friendly and checked on us a couple times (positive point!).
Not sure we'll go back.

The reason we didn't give an outstanding review overall was due to this being New Year's Eve and there were no specials

We enjoyed the meal and the wine very much. The food was southern with some unexpected twists. Both seafood and steak were well-represented on the menu.

My husband and I really like Blue fun. Their food combinations are different and delicious. He usually gets the salmon because he likes it so much but is often tempted to try something else. Excellent she-crab soup.

Our waitress was nice and quick. The restaurant was clean and nice looking. I did not like the slight stickiness of the table even after they are cleaned. The bread is a waste of calories it’s always stale and tasteless. However the food is otherwise quite tasty and presented nicely. I had the grilled shrimp. They were tasty and very buttery. My meal was served a little too cool for my personal taste but also not bad enough to complain. My friends had the barramundi and really enjoyed their meal. Overall we had a pleasant meal and I would go there again.
