Year over year we have come back to Blu, not just for the food but the service. Tina, who has waited on us since inception (2012) really makes our trip worth it. I can tell you that her recommendations have been spot on and everyone leaves asking when we can come back. We're a Long Island family who knows good seafood and when we come to Blu we know we're going to have a great meal. My personal favorite is the seared tuna steak, done perfectly every year with a glaze that will leave you wanting more. I fully recommend Blu to all who visit Ocean City, whether it's your first time or your last, Blu is the place to be!

We always come to to Blu to have drinks and enjoy the view. Tina has always been a great waitress and so accommodating. If you go to Blu ask for her by name no one will compare. The food is great and filling. The best in OC.

We just completed our 19th family vacation to OCMD. Every year we try to pick a new restaurant off trip advisor to try out. We have our favorites and get stuck in a rut. This year we tried BLU. We were NOT disappointed. We arrived to on a Wednesday night, approx 1830 to see a ton of people waiting. Shockingly, our wait time was only supposed to be 30min. So we pulled up a chair at the bar and in about 15min, we were called! The atmosphere is amazing. Great views, awesome lay out. Indoor, outdoor. Upstairs, downstairs. You name it, they have it. We were a party of 5 adults. Cocktails were not up to par. They didnt taste as good as the menu made them sound but thats the ONLY negative I have. We had the calamari appetizer, which was not like tradtional. It was Caribbean flavored with a coconut lime dipping sauce if I recall. And the crab dip with pretzels, very tasty. I wont go around the table to say what everyone else had, mine was enough to say GO TO BLU!! I had the jumbo shrimp with crab and imperial sauce. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! The biggest shrimp ive ever seen. With a generous heap of crab. Smothered in a creamy scampi sauce. Not like anything Ive ever had. Hands down the best crab/shrimp dish Ive ever eaten. My husband had the crab/crab leg steamer pot. Definately enough for 2! I couldnt help but he couldnt finish it! We WILL be back!!

Jess is a pretty attentive waitress. If you are going for seafood, get the seafood. Tried 3 appetizers; crap dip, tuna tacos, and Philly cheese steak pizza. Of course, the crab dip was the best. I could do without the cheese steak pizza. Tuna tacos are ok for a different twist. We shared the snow crab steamer pot between 3 of us. Food is steamed perfectly. The Blu Hawaiian is good. If you like Pina Colada's, you will like this signature drink.
