One of my best Seafood experiences I have had at a restaurant. Our server Austin took the time to explain the menu and make excellent choices. The appetizers and the main menu selections were all excellent as was the desert. 5 stars all around..Bravo!More

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.
