I'm just hoping Fred stays true to his original concept for Bluefin, which was a seafood place. I'm a little apprehensive that the name now puts steaks ahead of seafood, ie; Bluefin Grill and Bar Steaks and Seafood. If they're both good, OK, but please don't just put Salmon on the menu and call it a seafood place.

Just watched the vmail about Bluefin. Fred Karimpour, is emphatic that it will be a seafood place with something for everyone, including steaks and chops. Local fish deliveries 4-5 times a week and produce every day!

It will probably be the same fish truck that delivers to all the other country clubs. I will be surprised if they are serving “fresh fish”.

Based on all of this guy's restaurants, Honestly I cannot see this a go to place. All of his Restaurant are only barely OK...brought in food from Sysco. and other all pre- paired food companies.

Typical microwave in bag ...Nothing like a Honest to goodness Chef in Charge Restaurant. They are all the same ...TooJays, Evans,Palmers, etc etc etc

A Damn Shame.... Hey it's The Villages .... They continue to get away with it.

We will all know the truth in a few weeks. In the meantime, I'll hold my comments until I've eaten there.

Don't believe this place could support a Chef in Charge Restaurant. They are out there, in Ocala, Tampa, Orlando where there are customers that will pay for that on a regular basis.

We need a pure seafood restaurant you can walk into and order an excellent seafood based soup along with a entrée consisting of a great piece of fresh broiled /grilled fish and/or shellfish together with a fresh green vegetable. For the most part hold the sauces and let me have some butter and lemon wedges. And please no potato, rice or pasta dishes designed to add bulk to the plate By chance does anyone remember " Charlie's Crab " up north.
