"Best thing about it is location; right on Folly Beach, with its own beach bar. The menu quality won't compete with the better downtown Charleston restaurants, so foodies shouldn't have too high expectations, but service was attentive, meal was enjoyable, and overall a nice experience I'd recommend if you're looking for a place on the water."

"I ordered the special which was a tile fish dish with a vegetable medley and it was the best dinner of all we had during our stay in Charleston!!! All dinners elsewhere were excellent but the flavors in this dish were distinctly above all others! We will definitely be back when visiting the area and HIGHLY recommend BLU to any and all!!! Thank you!!!"

"I had made a reservation for my husbands birthday. Not knowing if they would be able to do it or not, I put in a very special request.
Before he could order a drink they brought him his favorite to surprised him, it was perfect. Thank you!

"My husbands chair nearly collapsed. When mentioning this to our waitress she said many of them were bad off. The soup of the day "lobster bisque" tasted like a store bought tomato base loaded with sodium. The only trace of lobster was a 1/2 teaspoon of lobster salad on top. My husbands crab cakes tasted bland. After a disappointing dinner, I can say the creme brûlée did fill us up and was very good. The chocolate Martinee was also good. A much better ending."

"It took about 10 minutes for our waitress to realize she was responsible for our table. When we finally ordered, it took 3 tries to get my husband's soft poached eggs right. The food was just okay...nothing to rave over at all! The waitress advised we wouldn't have to pay for the meal with the soft poached eggs, but when she brought the bill, it was included. Had to remind her that she told us we wouldn't have to pay for it. The beach is beautiful, though, and is visible from the restaurant. That was its only saving grace."

"We made our Valentine's Day reservation 2 weeks in advance before our trip since we knew we'd be in folly beach for Valentine's Day. Had been in the bar for a drink and was convinced it was the best spot for Valentine's Day. Had requested a table by the window although knowing it would be dark, we wanted to see the pier and sit at an angle next to each other. I know we were not guaranteed our request the hostesses didn't even look at it. We were seated at at small two top as far away from the window as possible. There were at least 4 tables open between us and the window at all times during dinner. When I brought it up to the hostess she said the requests are not guaranteed and that's how the rotation came up. What is the point of making advance reservations if they don't even get any benefit. There were at least 2 couples who walked in and got a four top by a window! Very annoying!"

"The restaurant has a beautiful view and is in an ideal location. We found it to be expensive and the food taste did not match the price. The thing that really turned us off was this, a beautiful restaurant with a beautiful view of the ocean and the hostess, the waitress and the manager let a woman with a dog walk through the restaurant from the beach. When brought to their attention they did apologize but made an excuse for the situation. I don't think the Board of Health would approve of this situation. We will not be returning."

"Still very much Holiday Inn food. Shrimp and grits was very good. Omelette was okay but breakfast potatoes arrived 5 min after eggs! Coffee was lukewarm until we asked for HOT coffee. Ocean view made up for some of shortcomings but we won't be back anytime soon."

"Made a reservation for Christmas night for my husband and I. We arrived and our table was not ready. It took 40 minutes just to get our appetizer that was burnt. It took close to an hour for our food. The food tasted great but was very small portions for the price. I don't think I would make the trip from Summerville to eat there again unfortunately."

"Had a very nice dinner with family and in laws to celebrate a 70th birthday and a 46th anniversary. Staff did a great job of placing us and even lowered the volume on the background music. Food and beverages were very good and we received a complimentary dessert for the celebrations."

"Dining by the ocean in Folly Beach is made more enjoyable by a trip to BLU on the
waterfront. The fish is fresh and attractively plated. Spicing could be a bit more
aggressively applied, but overall, the mahi mahi dish was tasty with a grilled ratatouille
pine nuts. Desserts were delicious and attractively presented.

"Folly beach is always nice and we have been many times to have drinks there but wanted to try a sit down meal with friends. The service was slow. All four of us ordered salads that were great and entres that were awful. Two ordered grilled Mahi that was over cooked and way over salted. Two ordered the only steak on the menu that was supposed to be one of the best cuts but it was chewy. Since we all had to be somewhere we grinned and bared it but for the price we probably won't try again."
