I tried it for the first time, it was not excellent but great. Everything was ok, there was no wow factor. The servers were attentive thought, my friend drop her knife and someone came over and replace it immediately. That was great.
Overall a nice place to enjoy a nice evening.

Had great meals in the past Nov/Dec 2020 so I was disappointed Monday night. Lobster bisque thick,tasteless (too many complained in earlier reviews about it being too salty...overcompensation ? and missing lobster. Tuna tartar unremarkable. Calamari bit over fried with hints of something else in oil prior. Porterhouse very good but expected that...no presentation but steak on a plate. Complimentary dessert for anniversary nice touch, thank you!...Big party upstairs that night might have stretched limits of dining detail. I will give it another try when they don't have a big private party.

With restaurants these days it’s a hit or miss so I will say this time was a miss unfortunately but the way things are these days I understand. My bacon was burnt and my pancakes were dry. They did remove the charge for my bacon because of that fact so that was nice of them. I will continue to support this restaurant.

Paid close to $300 for a very mediocre meal, but my disappointment was on birthday request not following through.

When making the reservation on Opentable, we specifically mentioned birthday and ordered dessert-crème brûlée and requested a birthday candle which wasn’t not followed through. When we asked the server for a candle, he came out with a table candle… we weren’t trying to be difficult but it was not what we were expecting.


As for the food, everything came out so slow. We ordered the French onion soup, which came out lukewarm (cheese was already solid), lobster bisque was tasty but salty. No issues on beef short rib en croute.

For our main course, ordered 2 medium-cooked NY strip steak which came out close to well done. BBQ chicken was alright, and 2-way duck was dry.

Overall, server was friendly and accommodating - enjoyed the wine sampling; but food is not up to par.

The staff at the Blue Grillhouse are making sure that dining is safe for all their customers, from wearing mask, wiping down tables, salt & pepper shakers, etc. They have indoor or outdoor dining to accommodate everyone, & keep the tables spaced enough for all to feel safe.
The front desk girls do a great job greeting everyone & getting you to a table in a timely manor. Wait staff & table runners keep a steady & safe flow.
The managers are great, & the food excellent.

Definitely eat at Blue- prices are high ($9.50 for a huge baked potato) but the food is well worth it.sService is excellent- wait staff is very attentive- it was a little too noisy for me, but nevertheless, I truly enjoyed eating there.

Service Was super slow. Had to wait a long time for drinks and appetizers and the ribs came out burnt. They charged us for two bottles of water that we weren’t told about.

Blue Grillhouse is the place to go if you are looking for good food, indoor or outdoor dining, and to feel safe while being there.
The staff are all friendly and make sure you feel safe while dining at their facility.
They have a lot of choices to choose from on the menu.

We try to eat a Blue for every special occasion because they have very good food. Last night it took them a little bit to get to our table when we first got there and the manager came over and gave our first round of drinks and dessert for free because he felt bad. Very nice servers and staff. Will of course be going back!

I think I will need to revisit the restaurant in the winter. The bar was filled with yellow jackets landing on our food and drinks. The staff seemed unfazed and tried to make light of the bee situation with small anecdotes. I was so focused on not trying to get stung making it difficult to enjoy my meal to the fullest. The steak was cooked to perfection, the tuna tartare was flavorful over the creamy avocado mound the overall texture and pairing were divine. the salmon burger was not overcooked but I wished to have a bit more on sauce my bun, the dessert was decadent and the drinks well poured. The sides ( wild mushrooms and garlic spinach) could use less salt ( tasted like someone forgot they previously salted).

We had a wonderful time with our party of six at blue. We came out to celebrate after a benefit Art Gallery opening at the Nazareth Center for the Arts. All of the paintings are going up for auction next week. We were surprised with some complimentary Birthday cake and continued celebrating! It was a huge slice of ice cream cake that all 6 of us shared! Thanks Blue staff for a wonderful night!

We had a very good meal at the Blue Grillhouse. The staff are friendly, service is great. Our Filet Mignon was excellent.
We were grateful to see how they kept the place clean, & were wearing mask which made us feel safer.

The flatbread appetizer was just alright. The wedge salad was excellent. The ribs were bad - chose the Carolina sauce. The side of crab mac'n'cheese was very good, but huge! The filet was delicious.

The service was just fair. The waitress would leave and not return for extended periods of time.

All in all, it was a hit and miss experience.

Went @ 130, was seated promptly...sadly although their was steak on the menu, I didn't get that because I didn't want french fries with it..I wanted a potato which they don't serve until 4pm. Had to settle for lunch. The Waitress was very nice but didn't see her often enough, I am a very good tipper (usually leave 50%) but this time it was just 25%. I will visit again but next time for dinner.

Normally when we come to blue the food is usually always great. This time we were placed near two very loud tables. The diet coke mix was off, it wasn't carbonated and tasted watered down. We asked for new ones which were carbonated, but still watery and tasteless. The ribs were very gritty due to over-seasoning on the dry rub layer. The BBQ sauce did not cover the ribs. The fries had no salt, were overcooked, and cold by the time they got to us. The shrimp in the pasta were not de-veined. We were there to celebrate getting married and was brought a dessert we did not ask for and charged for it. Disappointed.
