Venue Info

Known For

Seafood

Located within the Tides Hotel and right on the water on Folly Beach, BLU serves regional flavors and the freshest seafood available year-round. Chef Franklin Kirkman leans heavily on seafood in his menu, but still brings an inventive mind to the food—like with his signature dish, a shrimp udon with local fish, oyster mushrooms, and miso broth. Elegant but casual, this restaurant welcomes everybody from families fighting over brunch to couples lingering over date night. Make sure to try out the waterside seating, though—the view is unbeatable.
