This was our first time at
This was our first time at Bourbon Blue. Breakfast was nice and a little bit different - in a good way. Our server was very attentive and we were there early so it was rather quiet. We'd definitely go again.

Try it for Happy Hour
I have never had a bad time here wither it’s for brunch, dinner or a night out for drinks. The service is always fast and friendly. This is a perfect happy hour spot in Manayunk during the week. As soon as you walk in there is a warm welcoming atmosphere. The bar area is very large and the happy hour specials are unbeatable. $3 draft beers, $3 Three Olive Vodka drinks and half price snacks and apps. are a great way to start dinner. I enjoyed the fried calamari as an appetizer. It’s served with fried jalapenos slices and a fresh marinara sauce. Very good!
For the main course I had the pork chops served with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. The portion was very generous so I took half of it home for lunch the next day. My other f

Great restaurant. Food was
Great restaurant. Food was great and our waitress was even better. I got the Talapia special and it was prepared perfectly. I picked this restaurant because I was meeting with friends and it was centrally located. It turned out to be a perfect choice. The drink specials didn't hurt either!

Food was honestly a little
Food was honestly a little bland...i had the breakfast burrito. Potatoes were really good but overall food didn't stand out compared to other places in the area for brunch. Doesn't mean I wouldn't come back though. One waitress that we didn't have kept staring at me and my fiance noticed it and it was a little uncomfortable. Our waitress was really attentive though!

It was just my daughter and
It was just my daughter and I we had a great time. She's 3 and they welcomed her there with a smile. The owners were so kind to give her a complementary dessert at the end of our meal. I'm guessin it was the manager or maybe the owner he did make a stop by to check on our dining experience. Service was good, enjoyed the food. Great stuffed French tost, Bloody Mary bar nice touch for brunch. Will definitely be returning in the future.

The food and service were
The food and service were very good, but Bourbon Blue is also a sports bar with a noise level so high that it was hard to hear each other even in the dining area, which is really just an extension of the bar space. Although not disappointed with our meal, I would not have selected Bourbon Blue had I realized what the venue really was. More clarity in the description is needed.

visited for the first time
visited for the first time during Manayunk Restaurant Week. We will be back again. My husband loved the Gumbo Ya Ya, southern Fried Chicken, and Banana Bread Pudding. I enjoyed the vegetable tomato soup, salad and grilled shrimp & pasta alfredo.

Food was delicious! I tasted my husband's meal and it too was delcious! We'll most definitely be going back. And then to go party downstairs to a DJ spinning hot songs makes the night end on a fun note!!

Excellent! A must try.
We enjoyed everything from the valet parking to the food, service and atmosphere. The food was outstanding. Best crab cakes my wife ever had. As well, the fish tacos and blackened filet tips and the blackened fish tacos were awesome.

Family Dinner after Event
I took my family here and was very pleased because they are very picky and sometimes hard to please. The food and drinks were delicious and enjoyed by all. I would highly highly recommend the alligator quesadilla and a hurricane to start. Each of our party had a different entree and we sampled each other's as well, yum, yum! to everything.

From the moment you drive down the cobblestone street, the staff is so friendly...the valet parkers, the staff at the front door all very accommodating....very, very nice place...loved everything...food was delicious....we had the mashed potatos and fried chicken...when we first got there we had calamari appetizer that was delicious...I had my 18 year old with me and he enjoyed himself very much...he felt very comfortable. He was able to run up and down from concert to upstairs to catch some basketball on tv's. He was impressed also with staff including the kind owner. The band members were so personable. The sound was great. They worked so well together....just a great experience! Would definately go back! Thank you everyone!

Everything was perfect except, don't eat outside there. The balcony overlooks the swampy river and it looks gross. As long as you eat inside you will love it.

A Find in Manayunk
This lovely restaurant located at the end of a quiet street overlooking the canal, was a perfect spot for a great and serene lunch. This trendy town with its antiques and crafts fairs is wonderful to visit. Away from the hustle and bustle, we found this delicious restaurant that we enjoyed very much. We recommend the crabmeat sandwich with fries and tartar sauce. Southwestern flavoring adds to the ambiance. A good choice!

The comeback kids
Had a bad exerience last year...mostly the poor attitude of a waitress. We had a wonderful waitress this time(hey Jess ...u were great hun). The manager also made himself plentiful around the restaurant which helped when the servers were taxed with other duties.

Be prepared to look for a spot on the street or valet parking.

This was the first time I ever went to this restaurant and I was pleased with the overall experience. I would go again.

Good food - good service
We tried Bourbon Blue for the first time for lunch on Sunday. We liked it so well that we went back for dinner on Monday night. The menu has good choices both for those who want New Orleans spicy and those who want very mild. I think we'll be coming back frequently. Valet parking is available right by the door.

New Orleans Style
What a great spot, Stopped for dinner on way back from Trip. New Orleans Creole menu, was Delicious. Fresh seafood, Alligator Quesedillas I did not try but the guys said they were great. Great atmosphere. Sits on a canal, outdoor dining over canal.

This is a go to Sunday brunch
This is a go to Sunday brunch spot when we're in Philly, especially in the nice weather, when you can dine outside on the deck overlooking the Manayunk Canal. 1/2 price bottles of wine all day Sunday, with a $3 draft beer special, and a make your own Bloody Mary bar. The Blueberry Lemonade hit the spot. French Toast is always very good, with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Good options to craft your own omelet. Lunch menu also available, which includes a really good grilled shrimp and Bibb salad.

First time I visited this restaurant and was extremely satisfied. Will definitely be dining there more often.

Love Bourbon Blue
We always enjoy our dining experience at Bourbon Blue. The wait staff is second to none and their knowledge of the menu makes ordering something new a guaranteed great meal. We really love the southern influnced menu and make a point of taking friends so they can enjoy it too.

A gem In Philadelphia
Burbon Blue was a great find with an outdoor deck overlooking the Schuylkill River. The Food was New Orleans without the heat and was very well prepared and presented. Burbon Blue has a very nice wine list, with something over everyone, but not too expensive. Service was very professional and did not rush us to turn over the table. We will definitely be back.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was great (I don't recall the waitress' name) but she was extremely nice and helpful in explaining the restaurant week deals. The food was delicious and reasonably priced with the deal. Great for special occasion. I would love to come back to try another dish.

Super Restuarant Week experience
Great food. Great attentive staff ( even when crowded)and classy physical location in vibrant Manayunk..
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
was quite cold when we got there but staff turned all the fans off. Team approach to waiting/bussing table. food was awesome.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have only dined at one restaurant in Manayunk, so trying Bourbon Blue was the second. It was excellent. The food and presentation of it was great. A group of us went to experience it during Restaurant Week. We had the two course option. There was no room for a third course. The staff was wonderful and even the manager came over to check on things as a courtesy. I will definitely dine here again.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed the moment we walked in! The host ,the look, and our our waitress Samantha.

Good southern food and good service
Went during restaraunt week when they offered a $10, $20, and $30 selection. I'm a big eater, but after reading reviews I went with the $20 option.I had the calamari that lacked flavoring compared to Manyunk Brewery that I had during happy hour.I had the jumbalaya for my main course. This was spot on to down south that I've had in the past and was very flavorful. The portion of jumbalaya was vast and I surprisingly couldn't finish it. We arrived about 45 minutes early and did not have to wait. My GFand I were willing to sit at the bar until our table was ready, but they were ab;e tp seat us at our requested outdoor table that had a nice view. My GFhad the tilapia, which had a good spice and the sweet potato succatash was great as well.

Bourbon Blue who knew?
Right off Main Street on Rector, in Manayunk is the restaurant Bourbon Blue with it's electic, exotic, and exciting menu plus totally happening ambience, this is one you should try. It has a deck for outdoors dining and a cocktail bar with a complete variety of drinks. I give BOURBON blue two thumbs up!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I fell truly, madly and deeply in LOVE with the Bananas Foster!!! Best I've ever had, hands down. I ordered the Southern Fried Chicken and it was cooked well, but I tasted a little too much salt. The ambience has bar scene in the front, restaurant in the back and semi-relaxed outdoors and the Staff was friendly. Overall it was good find and I would rate it 8 out of 10.

My sister, grandmother, mother and I went here for Manayunk Restaurant Week and enjoyed an amazing meal! The waiter (I believe his name was Elliot) was extremely friendly and accommodating as one of the guests was a vegetarian and he knew the menu and the beer/wine selection very well and suggested some great choices! I have only been here for the great happy hours and $3 "U-Call-It" specials, but I will definitely be back as the food was delicious! I am glad I chose Bourbon Blue as one of the restaurants to try for Restaurant Week as every course was amazing! We will definitely be back!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate at Bourbon Blue for my birthday this weekend, and it was delicious! Everyone was wonderful about all of the allergies we had at the table, (they even have a GF menu) and everyone in my picky family was able to find something delicious. Our waitress, Hayley, was wonderful!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been here for dinner a few times during the warmer weather and ate outdoors. With an October day, we opted to sit inside for brunch. The food was delicious. I had the buttermilk pancakes that tasted like no others I've had. The fall décor was pleasant as well.
10/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
not a regular in Manayunk so tried this place on a whim. was a good choice. would probably be awesome when the weather is nice and you can sit outside but it was too cold when we visited. liked the ambience inside and found the staff to be terrific. nice menu with an interesting mix of choices. Only one gripe: the draft beer list was a big disappointment - they only have 6-7 on tap and two were "fruity" choices which are not my favorite.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was fantastic-presentation
The food was fantastic-presentation, portion size, and flavor. Staff very attentive and accommodating to diner's food allergies. Cocktails were delicious. Acoustics of the room make the din loud, and it is sometimes hard to hear your dining mate. However, overall wonderful experience.

A Great Choice
We were looking for a restaurant that we hadn't been to before in Manayunk. We chose Bourbon Blue after looking at the menu. We were very happy with the ambiance, the staff were very friendly and our waitress was pleasant and attentive. We will definitely go back.
