The food was good but the service was terrible, remarkably terrible. Our server was rude, so much so that we were all surprised she was working in a service industry position. Aside from being rude, she was also inattentive and unapologetic for the mistakes she made. Very disappointing.

First time attending this Blu Alehouse. It was perfect place to have a catch-up lunch with a soon to be partner company. I say at the bar, food was good and perfect noise level. I will meet here more often.

Great service, their offerings covered a wide range of options. We had the nachos and would make the 45 minute drive again, just for that olate.

The noise level was barely tolerable, with many children running about and talking loudly. I understand there's not much the restaurant can do about that, but it is not the most suitable place for a relaxing dinner and quiet conversation. Nevertheless, the food was very good, prices are low and the service was as good as can be expected for a packed restaurant.

This was a halfway meeting point with friends. The food was surprisingly good and the service was excellent. Being a bar restaurant, it was noisy as one would expect but overall, it exceeded our expectations. We would go back.

The food was good, although not generous and the dinner did not come with a salad, although salad was offered with steak dishes. We had salmon and chicken! It was very, very noisy, but that's to be expected at a sports bar.

Unfortunately this was our first time there. When we got there they said they didn’t get my reservation. They still seated us but not the nicest about it. I had a copy of my reservation. I ordered a medium rare burger and it came out rare. I never send stuff back but it was so rare I couldn’t eat it. Asked if they could cook it a little longer. They brought me a whole new burger but it was just as rare. I left most of it rare on the plate for them to see and not one apology or comp on the bill. Also service was soo slow.

Why does this place smell funny to us? The food and service are generally good but the space has an odor like old mop water that just doesn't go away.
