Nice restaurant which also serves on the deck overlooking the ocean. Great service and nice wine selection.

We came in January, off season, so not many customers. They didn't have the Buffett open because of that. We order pretty much traditional hot breakfast. There was plenty of portions and delicious tasting. Grits were nice and hot, eggs bacon, fresh cooked. We were able to eat breakfast and look out at the pier and ocean.

Reasonable cost, around $20.

This is with the Tides Hotel. It is a very nice restaurant. Its prices are mid range to a little high. They offer a lot of seafood as well as American cuisine. I had a Flounder Sandwich and it was very good. The waitress was very nice and attentive. They also offer room service for the hotel although we did not take advantage of that. Very nice place to eat if you are Folley Beach and want to eat in a quiet setting.

Our friend wanted to have lunch on the beach for her birthday. I researched places to eat and found that BLU inside the Tides Hotel was near where we wanted to shop. We sat outside and had a drink first loving the view of the ocean. Due to the cool temp outside we had lunch inside. We sampled the shrimp bruschetta, mussels, hummus, fish and chips, blue cheese chips and all were amazing, especially the shrimp bruschetta. We also enjoyed a nice bottle of Pinot noir. Since it was her birthday, they brought her a raspberry cheesecake with a candle. Excellent food, atmosphere and service. We will be back.
