Great patio seating with entertainment to go with the excellent food and drink. Reservations are recommended especially on the weekend. We had a group of eight for the outside and were seated right on time.

A place where Management seem to enjoy themselves more than the customers! Awful behavior by apparent management.

Ordered ribs and they were terrible. Over cooked and covered in a smokey sauce. Service slow. Will not be back

Thank Dave B
Mangrove7827, Guest Relations Manager at Blu Mangrove Grill, responded to this review

Mr. Dave, My apologies that our food did not meet your standards. The ribs you ordered were prepared in our "Smoker", clearly stated on the menu, not in a "smoked sauce". Had you requested to see a manager we would have immediately resolved the issue and brought something to your liking. Unfortuately, I do not have the ability to satisfy... More

Awesome as usual. It was my birthday dinner. Took my lady there for "Twin Lobster" night. Lobsters were huge, great potato salad and coleslaw. Great service despite all the tables inside being full.

Thank Mike B
