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.

This restaurant is located in Town Center Place, a large relatively new not covered shopping "mall" northeast towards Camden that includes apartments/condos above the retail stores. Blue Fin has a nice bar as well as good upscale American food. The fact that the two members of my extended family who have lived in Columbia for decades were unaware of this... More

Excellent food and good service. From a fish perspective not your typical dishes, and I mean this in a good way. We got NC trout and catfish. Both were excellent and not prepared in a typical way. Catfish was on a grit/cornbread thing which was quite good. Neither was fried.

The food was great. Erin our server, was great. She was very professional. Quick with the service and knowledgable about the menu. The restaurant needs a refurbishment. The table tops are worn, as is the carpeting giving a nice ambiance restaurant a dirty feel. My wife went to use the bathroom and the floor was sticky. If you can't keep... More

On a recent visit to Blue Fin we enjoyed quiet atmosphere, attentive service and tasty, well-prepared meals. On the server's suggestion, my husband tried the Sheepshead special and pronounced it delicious. I had the tenderloin filet and it was the most tender and flavorful one I have had in recent memory.
