Place is very nice , staff friendly but the food was just ok. Better value at Captain d's. Fish was not fresh, shrimp was over cooked. The crab cakes were too bready For the price there are better values out there

Over the past few weeks I have been to Bluefin twice with a large group of friends. Both times were Friday nights. Both times the restaurant was not especially busy. The atmosphere is nothing special. Service was the same no bad comments nor anything of note. One other thing both visits had in common were dry overcooked food. The first... More

Hubby and I had a date night so we came here for dinner. The food was pretty good. We got there around 6:20 and had our food very quickly and it was very hot. My husband got the Ribeye for $26 and I got the fried shrimp and fried crab cakes platter for $20. Husband said his ribeye was really... More

Overall, the food was good. If you are looking for large portions, you will not find it here. It can be pricey with the portions, but overall it was good. If you want decent prices more along with portions, I suggest going at lunch.

We celebrated here with a fabulous dinner for our recent Ft. Jackson grad from boot camp. We selected Blue Fin from 3 choices we narrowed down and it did NOT disappoint. My soldier was craving seafood so she ordered the twin lobster tails. Others at our table selected the rib eye, filet mignon, oven fried chicken and a penne pasta.... More

My final night in Columbia visiting daughter and family they wanted to try Blue Fin. We took three grandkids ages eight, three and one. Not a challenge. No, really. We quickly got pasta for the kids and drinks and appetizers for us adults (calamari, mussels, and crab cakes). We could have simple ordered MORE appetizers...so yummy. I got lobster tails... More

Just visited last night for dinner. Waiter was very friendly and honest about my food choices. The atmosphere was great, live musician, people at the bar (but not too noisy). Even good movies, yes movies and just sports, on the TV. I had the shrimp tempura appetizer, and the lobster tail x 2 with lemon butter sauce as my meal.... More

Best crab cakes around! I definitely recommend trying the crab cakes appetizer. It is paired with a very interesting bed of succulent succotash. The filet mignon is outstanding! 5 stars! Service is excellent too!

Perhaps my recent visit to 82 Queen in Charleston has ruined me for all others. I really wanted a place in Columbia that would tantalize me with their she-crab soup. Unfortunately, Blue Fin isn't the spot. I was joking about 82 spoiling me. I was ready and willing to be equally wow'd. The soup was kinda lukewarm...I think that was... More

I had the hamburger, it was delicious. We got it to share but after a couple of bites I wish I had it all by myself. It was very good not sure about anything else here.
