Contemporary American
Bluestone is a Chicago-style restaurant in Evanston that offers homestyle cooking in a warm and welcoming environment. Owner John, whose obsession with golf led to the more than 250 pin flags decorating the restaurant, opened Bluestone after transitioning from commercial film production. His goal was to create a locale that was filled with friendliness and familiar faces, all while serving a variety of menu options with a hometown feel. Guests can enjoy favorites like crab cakes, or branch out and discover a new one from their wrap, soup, quesadilla or burger menus. Don't forget to try homemade specialties such as the turkey or black bean burgers, or the Bluestone signature smoked wings. There are also several thin-crust pizza options, like the pesto or BBQ chicken offerings. Whether you're just passing through or a long-time resident, Bluestone, at the corner of Central St. and Prairie Ave., is everyone's home away from home.

    The food was average - not bad but nothing special. The service was ridiculously slow. Even getting our drinks took a long time.

    Staff is always excellent at Bluestone. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. My patty melt was superb, the fresh cut fries even better! One in our party had blackened salmon sandwich and enjoyed it, too.

    5 stars! Bluestone was recommended to me as I was looking for a location near Northwestern to host a business lunch. I loved that I could book a reservation for 12 through Open Table and there no imposed minimums. Service was fantastic and the food was incredible—everyone raved. I had the Mediterranean Bowl with grilled shrimp and wow! I wholly recommend Bluestone - will be back if I’m in the area again. Bravo!

    After a recent dining experience which was only ok, I was given an opportunity by the owner to give the restaurant another try. It was better, for sure. I tried a couple of new items, the french onion soup and the blackened salmon sandwich. Both were very good. I like that the soup was available as a small upgrade charge to go with my sandwich. The food presentation wasn't good during my last experience, but was excellent this time around. Service was friendly, but not overbearing, which I appreciated. I will definitely be back.

    The food wasn't as good as I had hoped. The nachos were very sloppily presented and just a huge mess. The thin crust pizza was pretty good. I am willing to try this place again and give it a second chance.

    In our reservation we responded to question of whether it was a special occasion. It was an out of town family member's visiting us birthday. The mgr knew and the waitress didn't think to bring anything or check with us to see if they could present a birthday dessert.

    I was disappointed by my experience. The food was fair. We had the hummus as an appetizer. That was fine. Ordered the Caesar salad and a corned beef Reuben. I was excited to see a corned beef Reuben on the menu, but it wasn’t good. I could only eat half of it. The Caesar salad was fair. When we finished eating, we were never asked if we wanted dessert. Did not feel satisfied at the end of dinner, like I usually do when the food and service are good.

    Another great dinner at the Bluestone! Everyone who works there is so friendly and attentive. Great lively crown on a beautiful summer night. The smoked wings are AMAZING!
