Nice atmosphere for date lunch. Great window seat, friendly service, husband loved his hosein fish, my salmon undercooked after sending back still too rare for me. Good crab bisque. Oysters on small side.

Blue fin has a great menu with fresh catch of the day prepared in many different ways. They have oysters that are large and fresh to enjoy with your favorite happy hour drink. Best place for fish I have been in a very long time.

get off at McDuff and go east toward the river. Turn right on St Johns. The restaurant will be on the right in the Avondale shopping area.
