Steakhouse



The Blue Heron Steakhouse is located in the thriving historic Jefferson Street corridor. We offer an excellent menu with steakhouse classics and modern Southern fare with specialties such as fresh oysters, the finest cuts of beef, shrimp and grits and more. Our restaurant started as a hand-crafted cocktail bar and consumer demand made it obvious that we needed to expand to a full-service kitchen. The Blue Heron is situated in a renovated home with exposed brick, a beautiful, locally crafted chandelier, a roaring two-sided fireplace in the colder months. Locally owned and loaded with character, The Blue Heron is a perfect setting for an intimate date, an evening with friends or simply a casual dinner while watching the game.

Food was rather average. The layout is just plain odd....with both restrooms directly off the dining area. Worth a try, but probably not worth a return visit.

Then it took 10 minutes to be greeted, the steak was extremely sad as the menu said its a 40 oz porterhouse steak. The bone alone accounted for 32 ounces atleast, not nearly worth the $100. Dessert was decent, but when compared to Ruth Chris’ Steakhouse as was seen on Google and OpenTable, not even close.

The bacon was delish. The tomatoes were the best tomatoes I have ever had. Main entree was NY strip for me. Medium rare. Cooked perfectly. My husband had the Lamb Porterhouse, medium rare. Fantastic as well. We will be back!

The food was incredible, service was amazing, and the ambience is unlike any I’ve ever experienced. If you’re looking for a high-class meal with a woodsy, relaxed, refined vibe, you won’t find a better place than Blue Heron. We will be back.

As somebody who had grown tired of Rubys and Tonys, I was happy to find a just-like-home atmosphere at Blue Heron. I felt well taken care of, catered for, and really enjoyed the homely atmosphere. Both of my friends made note of how cozy the location was. However, the décor didn't come close to the food. The food was outstanding, from the Crab Cake for appetizer, a nightly special, to the 40oz porterhouse that my friend and I shared. It was more than enough for two people, and when combined with two sides, was a great value for $50 a person. Somebody looking to dine out for a nice date could spend $100 on a Porterhouse, two sides, and two glasses of water, and though we spent more on appetizers and drinks, you wouldn't need to. Because of this, it is great value for the price. I was thoroughly enjoyed by the experience, and will be sure to be back for future events.
