Great service, excellent food and fun atmosphere! The staff is friendly and we didn't feel rushed.

My wife and sister-in-law took me to dinner to celebrate my birthday. We have been to Bourbon Blue several times in the past, and the food and service have been generally good. This time was no exception - except for the fact that my wife who loves bread asked for bread for the table at the time our salad was being served. We were given one piece of cornbread with the approximate measurements of 2 inches by 4 inches for the entire table. This left a bad taste in her and her sister's mouth. My recommendation to the management is to offer a reasonable amount of bread (and charge extra for it, if you must!)

Good quality Cajun food. Good value on a Monday night pre-theater.

Mediocre at best. Not a destination for good food. If you're stopping for drinks and apps your fine but if you are craving a cajun creole experience this place is not it. The soup and entree were lukewarm, lacking flavors we both craved. Since Crawdaddy s in west chester closed it created a void which has not been filled

Terrible all around. Our server must have been high because he was slow, unorganized and couldn't have cared less about his tables. Our food came out at different times so while half the table had their food the other half was still waiting. I can't speak for the others good but my eggs were simultaneously undercooked and old. Also, we had the make your own Bloody Mary variety or choices, also weak alcohol pours. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone with taste buds or eyes.

Came for an evening snack. The gumbo was very tasty and hearty. Poutine was also quite tasty.

As always a great brunch option. Our server seemed new but was very personable.

Will never go back. Food is at best mediocre
Whole place smells musty and moldy. Server was nice and did her best. Sitting outside on the deck was also a bad idea. Smells from the canal is unappetizing . But dark and you can't see the food.. thank goodness.

Been here before for happy hour and had a good experience. Came back with friends for brunch - not the same experience. All of our food was oddly cold except the pancakes: jambalaya, breakfast sausages, potatoes and bacon - all cold. Drinks were fantastic though! Will try again; would like to think it was an off day for the restaurant.

Went to dinner with a friend. Sat at the bar first and had a very friendly bartender. Then, we sat in the dining room to have dinner. Food, service, and atmosphere were all great.

Its a pretty restaurant, but also very, very loud - makes conversation difficult. The salad was good, the cornbread was good, though one piece was provided for 3 people at the table. The fried chicken was just not good. The chicken risotto was just bad. The chicken tasted like it was cooked on a dirty grill - the burnt remains of whatever was cooked previously was all I tasted. One bite and I was done. The service was so indifferent that I didn't bother to send my meal back - by the time the waitress finally returned to our table, I just wanted the check in order to be able to leave. The guys at the valet were very nice!

This is the second time we've gone to this restaurant - the food is very good and somewhat innovative, we like the option of outside seating facing the canal, and we really like the 1/2-price wine bottles on Sundays.

Great outdoor location next to Manayunk canal. Food's OK, not great. Nothing out of the ordinary. Service friendly enough but very slow. The location and view are enough to bring me back, though.

We were in town visiting family and found this place on open table. The brunch menu is great for everyone- breakfast options, salads, sandwiches, burgers etc. the food was good. I had the omelette with veggies and it was good- the only downside was the potatoes were a little dry. My husband got the chicken wrap with Cajun fries- and I took a few they were great and I love the seasoning. My in laws had the breakfast burritos which they enjoyed as well. The food was pretty good, the place was a little empty for 1 on a Saturday. The nice thing is they had outdoor seating. They had valet which was pricey- $12 so we parked on the street instead.
