Bluestone American BBQ
Chef Alvaro Malel draws inspiration from his Uruguayan heritage, and his passion for cuisines from both American continents to reimagine smoked classics like Yearling Beef Short rib with chimichurri, and the Cuban style pulled pork with lime mojo. Like the best of all these traditions, generously sized dishes are designed to be shared, banquet style, with friends, family & colleagues.
This summer, Alvaro invites you down to Bluestone to enjoy a range of South American inspired specials. In addition to a selection of weekly specials, Bluestone is offering Double Smoked Asado Beef Ribs with chimichurri, and refreshing $12 Caipirinha cocktails made with Cachaca and fresh lime juice –a perfect combo available all summer to help you enjoy the warmer weather.
Bluestone is located at the heart of Coburg on Sydney Rd.
Best american BBQ in melbourne!
Highly recommend, hoping to support you through COVID-19!
Thanks so much for the support Beth. We'll be opening our doors to diners next week, we hope to see you back soon.
Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Service was a little slow but due to new regulations otherwise great night.
Thanks so much for the feedback, hope to see you back with the easing of restrictions.
Service was fantastic, food was good, just the chicken wasn't to my tasting, but all other meat was fantastic. Recommend to anyone
Thanks so much Damian
Food arrived very quickly hot and fresh combination of tasty slow cooked meats and unique accompaniments. Reasonable wine prices but cocktail a bit expensive. Staff friendly and attentive.
Thanks so much Gary, hope to see you back soon.
We came for lunch and chose feast #2 for the four of us, there was heaps of food and tasted good except for the lamb as it wasn't hot enough. Overall the food wasn't served hot. A little disappointed
Thanks for the feedback Lena, I'll definitely pass it on. Food temperature for American BBQ is generally lower than what you might expect of other cuisines, and this may have been the cause of the lower temperature when you dined with us. That said, we are happy to accommodate your preferences if you let us know. Hope to see you back again soon.
We went with friends who had already been there a few times.We had one of set menus, so we could sample a little of everything.The servings are so generous, the food was great, as was the service!!!
Thanks so much Judy, would love to see you back at Bluestone when everything goes back to normal
Great food and amazing atmosphere. The staff were lovely too. A bit noisy but otherwise excellent
Food was fantastic, service was fantastic and may have just been where we were seated but couldnt tell there were others in the restaurant so noise wasnt too bad either as some restaurants can be quite noisy.
Thanks so much for the feedback Peter, so happy that you enjoyed your experience
All round perfect! Great service even better food!
Thanks so much Corey, will be sure to pass on your feedback to staff

Thank you, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Food is very delicious, service is great, the ambiance is too dark for us, and quite noise too.
Thanks for the feedback Denise, we are definitely looking at addressing issues of lighting and noise very soon.
Brisket was a bit dry and overall the food was very salty. Have eaten here before and didn't have these problems though. Overall I'll give them another try though and see what happens.
I'm so sorry that you had such a poor experience of the food this time around, I'll certainly pass your feedback onto staff. We do very much value your patronage and look forward to seeing you again.
Really good food. Got the pick 3 to try everything and wasn’t disappointed. Would definitely recommend
Thanks so much Justin, hope to see you again soon
The food was absolutely delicious but it was missing some cornbread or biscuits for those die hard southern food addicts.
Thanks for the feedback Amber. It's such a shame but it looks like you missed out on the corn bread special we had on by only a couple of days! We'll have to see about getting this on the main menu
Great food and great service. Recommend to all. Worth the drive.
Thanks Jeff! So happy that you enjoyed your trip out to Bluestone
Delicious food. Incredible value. Warm friendly service. Fun atmosphere. Couldn't ask for more. X
Thanks Miranda, appreciate the feedback
Excellent food and quality. The service staff were also attentive and knowledgeable. Some of the best BBQ brisket I’ve ever had, cannot recommend it enough. Sides were all delicious and great portions. We finished with a banofee pie and that was heaven on a plate. Can’t wait to go back.
Thanks for the feedback Angie, I'll be sure to pass it on to staff. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

The flavour was mouth watering and very tender but I think not enough carbohydrates with that much meat.
Thanks for the feedback, will certainly pass it on to the kitchen
first time to the bluestone but wont be our last, food was great service was great and they bring the food in 2 stages so your meat doesnt get cold we had the pit master choice number 2 for 2 people and desert was fab

It is a very small restaurant so definitely book!! They are very quick to serve your food and it is good serve sizes. And just soo yummy!! Would definately go back! It is very dark in there that would probably be my only negative (but barely). Probably wouldnt take kids as small and dark.
Thanks so much for the feedback Rachel, looking forward to seeing you again
Excellent service as always and of course the mouth watering food which is fantastic 100% of the time!
Thanks Glen, always a pleasure
I've been coming to Bluestone since it's first week, before it's alcohol permit! Every time I walk in to Bluestone, I am treated as family. Service, food, drinks and atmosphere are top notch, super reasonably priced too. Thanks for everything Al, Amanda and team. Until next time!
Thanks so much Jack, your feedback means a lot to us. See you again soon.
Food, service, quantity and variety was all perfect. We had a great meal and had to resort to a taking done hone for midnight snack. Go the banquets and whisky samplers. Thank you
Thanks Craig, look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere what more could you ask for. And on top of that they offer a halal option for those people who want it.
Really happy that you enjoyed everything Michael, look forward to seeing you again.

The food is exactly what you are there for and hope to get. All the slow cooked smoked meats are excellent. The venue the a little loud but the smoked meat makes up for that.
Thanks so much for the review and the kind words, hope to see you again soon.
Absolutely love this place. Amazing food, service and drinks. We eat there all the time and always consistent. Never disappoints.
Thanks so much Nadia, always a pleasure
This place is excellent. We came for lunch on the weekend. My 8-year old child got a great burger and the most delicious fries I have tried in ages. Our food was amazing- so tasty, perfectly cooked and well presented. Excellent value for money. Staff were friendly, attentive, and even gave us a quick tour of the smoker even though they were busy.
Thanks so much Jane, so happy you enjoyed your experience at Bluestone. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
It was great! The food was terrific and the service was completed by such wonderful helpful people!
Thanks for taking the time to write such a complementary review Angie, look forward to seeing you again.
If you live for BBQ, delicious food, great atmosphere and wonderful service then you will love Bluestone. Could not recommend this place more highly, plus there are vegetarian options available and a great choice of whiskey. It’s the literally the best!
