    Food was absolutely delicious! I had the scallops and shrimp and my wife had a filet. Both were so good. Our only complaint was the price of cocktails.

    I’ve ate at the Vue multiple times and have had great experiences. Unfortunately last night that wasn’t the case. We both ordered the filet and lobster tail. Her steak was burnt and my steak was mushy which I sent it back and the next one that was brought out was a horrible cut of meat. I was informed by the server that their is a new cook. Was definitely disappointed with this experience.

    This was our first time to Vue. I honestly don't know if we'll be back. Maybe. But not on a Saturday night. Perhaps on a Tuesday when there are fewer patrons. Oh, the service was still outstanding, the food excellent, but the noise. Oh, the noise! The owners should seriously consider some sound damping in the dining room. They were not full but there were enough diners inside to make the simplest conversation challenging. I would say that if you have a high tolerance for noise while you dine, then you will enjoy your experience. But if you have any kind of hearing difficulty, as I do, you may not.

    Sandy was our server and was top notch as always. We’ve been to the Vue numerous times but last evening I didn’t think up to par. Got the grouper special which was pan seared atop grits. There was brown glaze around fish and grits which did not make for pretty presentation. Got the ceasar salad to start which was so so and finished with cobbler which was good. Had 3 glasses wine between us. Noisy as often is. For almost $200 including tip thought did not get money’s worth.

    Decided to dine at Vue 30a on a whim. Both hubby and I chose the fish of the day which was a grouper dish with mashed potatoes and broccolini, topped with a pineapple salsa and a vodka sauce. Presentation was beautiful and the grilled grouper just melted in your mouth. Simply perfection.

    Upon arrival for our 6:00 pm reservation we noticed how dark the two-tiered parking lot was. No landscaping lights - just dark and “hilly” - so dark it was hard to spot one empty parking space! A valet service is badly needed at this restaurant!! Upon entering the restaurant we were escorted a lively bar scene to our table. The restaurant was so brightly lit and sterile looking - it reminded me of the restaurant that would maybe be in an assisted living facility. But … our meal was delicious!!!! The waitstaff - just ok.

    Good food and good prices for this area. Decor a bit dated. Would like to see white tablecloths and better mood lighting. Mature crowd. Great drink menu. We had calamari, wedge salad and lobster tails stuffed with crab cake.

    Was shown politely to our table waiter introduced himself asked about drinks and was served without delay. Same with starter and main course. We didn’t feel rushed at all . Food was amazing and although a little more expensive than other local restaurants was worth every cent. Wine was also fabulous and was recommended by our waiter. The view was as good as the food.

    While open to the public for lunch and dinner, this restaurant also has members who have use of the pool and golf course. As soon as we entered we were greeted but an extremely friendly woman who was a member and gave us the rundown. Bartenders were super friendly as well and quick with the drinks. The food was delicious as well and of the course that waiter

    Our first time and we will be back! We saw the most beautiful sunset while enjoying our chef specials of the night. Ahi tuna on a jicama slaw that was just amazing and so flavorful and then the grouper with mashed potatoes and broccolini. Chris was our server and so attentive and helpful with explaining the menu items to us. Patio heaters on a chilly night were very much appreciated!

    We dined for our anniversary and the experience was absolutely awesome! The food was fantastic, beyond my ability to describe. Our waiter suggested - and took - a picture of us outside at sunset which was a nice touch. Bottom line, Vue at 30A is THE spot if you're looking for a romantic dinner in the area.

    The view is great but windows inside extremely dirty so better to sit outside for the sunset view. Server was indifferent and curt with responses to questions about drinks from the bar.
