When travelling to Surfside Beach, we always plan our trip so we stay at a hotel near Blue Ocean. Once again, we were not disappointed. The place was very busy, but we were seated within 5 minutes. Our server was right there for our drink orders. They are very organized in how people are seated to what server, and everyone... More

After a 9 hr ride from Florida to Clinton we found this restaurant be t to our motel. A 10% discount was given to us by Quality Inn for this restaurant. It happened to be Valentine day. The restaurant was pretty filed, but service was great. This is a seafood place. Very nicely decorated. Great meal. Would return.

If you are looking for sea food and not wanting to drive all the way to the beach, then visit this place. A very good meal and good prices.

We visited on a Sunday at what was a very busy time, the restaurant was full of folk in their finery. We began our meal with jalapeno peppers entombed in a cheese and cornmeal coating. Clearly they had not been fried at the correct temperature as each piece was full of disgusting grease. For our main course we ordered crab... More

I ate at Blue Ocean in December and enjoyed it so much, that I couldn't wait to eat there again. They have a wide variety of food however seafood is their specialty. The desserts are out of this world, save room.
