    Food was mediocre. Service was good. DC prices for steak in a pool of A1 sauce. I know they're new so hope they get better. Rooting for them.

    Blue Jay is a foodie gem set in a rural small NC town. Littleton has a treasure in its downtown.

    Sat at the bar with lovely background music at just the right level, engaging staff and THE FOOD! We shared the “iceberg salad” - so many tasty treats on top! Bone in pork chop fabulous and duck breast a WOW! Both mains complemented by delicious sides and cooked to perfection. Bluejay Bistro is our go to place when at Lake Gaston.

    My wife and I were really looking forward to dining here. Unfortunately we were both pretty ‘meh’ about our experience. We arrived and were promptly check in. My wife was wearing a nice dress and I was wearing nice jeans, dress shoes, and a polo shirt. I was also wearing a clean/dark baseball-style hat. After being seated for maybe five minutes, the same person that seated us came back to ask me to “please remove your hat while dining with us.” I promptly complied - but it bugged me afterwards, and my wife thought it was a very rude request. Sure, we get it. It’s a nice establishment, and it even says in their website’s FAQ that men please remove their hats. I just feel that this was handled poorly - the lady that seated us could have asked me “do you have a health reason or other concern for leaving your hat on?” or something of that nature. What if I had horrible scars or other deformity that I didn’t want to put on display to other patrons? I shouldn’t have to retort to a blunt request with what may have been just that. And seated three tables down were other patrons with noisy kids whom weren’t dressed “smart casual” at all - but my hat was obviously the bigger problem for this establishment. The food was ok - granted we had the burger - but aside from being cooked to our specification (medium) it was pretty bland for a $28 burger. Their cocktails were also generally overpriced. $13+ for a cocktail is a bit much. My wife and I are from South Florida, so maybe our experiences from other ‘nice’ restaurants in that area are just generally better; but I believe if this restaurant was in South Florida it wouldn’t be in business long. If you live locally and want a ‘fine’ dining experience without having to drive quite a distance, this restaurant is about all you’re going to get.

    We are sorry we didn't immediately ask about your health as a reason for wearing a hat inside. We find it invasive and rude to ask about people's health. If someone does have a health or religious reason for wearing a head covering, they have politely made us aware. With regard to children's attire/behavior, we try not to compare it to that of adults. In excessive situations, we offer dining solutions for affected diners or the party with children. Regarding the food, we are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the half pound, dry aged beef burger. I can see why you might balk at a $13 cocktail, but because we use higher quality spirits, crafted ingredients, and fresh squeezed juices in season; there is an associated cost. We wish you all the best in your future dining experiences.

    Excellent. We enjoyed everything from the moment we arrived. The entire team works well together - the moment you walk in, to the moment you leave will be very well curated by the staff. I recommend the bone-in pork chop, which I had, along with the slab (wedge) salad. I am not local but visit the lake area as often as possible. This is a five star possible gem in a major city, located in a small, rejuvenated town that deserves more accolades. I have worked and lived in cities like Pittsburgh, NYC, and DC and would argue Blue Bird Bistro is among the better of each cities offerings. Go - taste - enjoy. We will return whenever we are in town for sure.

    Our meal was delicious and we were celebrating a friends birthday who had not been there. We shall come again. We were only disappointed in the fact that the menu did not match the website menu, we were looking forward to the scallops and they did not offer them. The website should reflect the menu.

    We enjoyed another great meal at the Blue Jay! Had the Hams and Jams appetizer, our favorite! My husband had the fried chicken entree and I had the duck. Both were fabulous. We finished it off with the Walking on Sunshine dessert which we loved. As always service was top notched.
