The staff here was wonderful when my wife and I stopped for dinner. I would recommend hanging out for happy hour, and grabbing an app.

We celebrated our grandsons and daughter in law’s birthdays. The Bluefin was a very good restaurant, the food was outstanding and the service was very good. They had many selections of fish, steak, pasta and choices for the kids. We had some excellent desserts.
