    Celebratated daughters 25th anniversary. Small group of 7, Most had something different. All stated excellent. !) 10 stars for the sticky calamari!!!!! Stuffed cod, scallops, salmon and chicken fingers. Everyone was happy. Key lime and peanut butter pies were super. Great food, great location, great service and great pricing. I think you can see we thought all was great.

    We don’t normally head to East Greenwich but wanted to try something different and a friend recommended Blu. The hostess first brought us to a table under the tent near a noisy bar. I asked for a table away from this area and she brought us on the other side to a table that was in the sun with no umbrella. We ended up at a nearby table in the shade but across from another bar that wasn’t quite as noisy. If your looking to have a quiet dinner on the water this isn’t the place. Our server, Miranda was very good throughout our dining experience. The food was mostly very good, however the vibe was not to my liking at all. I didn’t appreciate folks drinking and standing near the table. I found that if I sat back in the chair they moved so that’s what I kept doing. We started with two appetizers, the crab cakes which were outstanding and the mussels casino which were tasty but on the dry side. I had salmon with jasmine rice and broccoli cooked to my liking. My spouse had a salmon ceaser wrap that he loved. For dessert we shared a slice of key lime pie that was just okay, had a bit of a soggy crust. Miranda’s attentive service made the dinner much more enjoyable. Should we return I’ll definitely ask for a table away from the two bars.

    Took my wife there for her birthday. The night started with a drink being spilled by our waitress all over the table. The food was fair and inconsistent. Calamari was great, fish n chips had soggy French fries but ok fish. The bust staff was great. Our waitress was so so. Will not return

    The most disgusting salad I’ve ever had. It’s like they have taken the entire box of salad and dropped it in a plate. No garnishes, no presentation it was. The martini glass had leftover lipstick. Yucks The service was good, place was very energetic but the food was terrible

    We enjoyed our dinner here. My daughter loved the penne a la vodka and I enjoyed my lobster roll. We’re on vacation and wanted to eat at a place on the water with seafood and non-seafood choices. Watching the boats come in and out at night while we waited and during dinner was fun. The staff was great. They really seem to have their act together to keep everything moving and give great service.

    Nice boutiquey feel. The inside bartender, Victor, is a great guy. It was a pleasure watching him make drinks while we waited for our table. food and drink was very good. Staff were all very nice. A little noisy but hey, the “joint was jumpin’” so can’t argue with that kind of popularity! We will definitely go again!

    They sat us in front of the stage, the band started playing after 30 minutes, couldn’t enjoy the dinner or have a conversation with our party. Did not have time to finish our drinks, no time for dessert. The crowd was around our table. They practically kick us out, it was totally wrong what they did, we had a reservation. Very, very bad experience. You can contact me if you wish.

    We had a group of 7 with two young children. We booked a reservation a number of days in advance. We showed up 15 minutes before our reservation and had to wait at the bar because they still had a number of reservations to seat that were ahead of us. No problem. We approached them again after our reservation time and were seated outside as per our reservation request. With many tables available we were sat 1 foot away from the band that was setting up in the stage. They were moving large equipment. Testing out instruments. Talking and stepping back behind our table to look at the stage. We had a 6:15 reservation and the band wasn’t playing until 9. The food was fine. Nothing to rave about. Our 5 & 8 year old were less than impressed with the noise levels. A small amount of common sense from the staff to seat us away from the riff raft would’ve gone a long way. Would not recommend.

    Went for a celebration dinner. We waited two hours for our entrée. I received the wrong meal. I ordered scallops and was brought over cooked stuffed squad. They only had two dessert offerings and no scotch at the bar. Our waitress was hard to find when we needed something. It’s a lovely sunny but overall the meal and service was a great disappointment.
