The outside eating area is very nice. The inside is spacious and comfortable. The staff is friendly and caring. More attention needs to be paid to food quality and portions.
Great place! If you thought that Blu was a run if the mill sports bar, think again. Superb restaurant!
Had the Scallops Rockefeller , absolutely delicious! Was pleasantly surprised. I normally get one of their burgers but figured I would change it up. Now I have a another favorite. Our waitress was truly a delight and made the dinner even better.
Great beer selection, seasonal cocktails are good and always a good meal. Love it!!
Service was adequate, but we had to ask for water twice and coffee. The food was cold was supposed to be hot. Have eaten here many times and this was not good!
Everything was great except my entree. Had the NY strip medium well but was definitely quite well done. Very flat and dry. For the price getting only a single scoop of mashed potatoes was too high. Much better quality elsewhere. Also the beer selection was too IPA heavy. Kolsch was listed in a header on the menu but no kolsch style offered. They ran out of yuengling. Much more diverse beer selections are needed as not all of us like IPA.
We come to Blu Alehouse for most of our family events and frequent for casual dining. Our server was fantastic & the food was delicious!
Favorite place ! Food is always excellent and drinks are yummy ! Our waiter was amazing !
We really liked our drinks. The steak sandwich was alright. We probably were expecting thinly sliced meat.
All good !
What a great lunch we had! The waitress was attentive without being pushy. The food was faboo! Will definitely be back!
Large group of 7 that straggled in - we reserved a table online to avoid any issues. Taylor, our server, was VERY attentive - good sense of humor and contributed to the overall excellent experience. Food was good but not world class. Cocktails were unique and refreshing.
Service was wonderful. Tad loud but still we had a great experience. If it wasn't for our server, we would grade it differently but she made the experience much better.
The services was outstanding.
Our waiter was helpful and delivered our orders on time and with a smile,
Terrific food & service, bright clean atmosphere.
We were seated promptly. Service and food were very good. Dining room was very noisy but that’s usual in a place like this! We would return.
Food was just ok this time. Usually pretty good but service was great and sitting outside is always nice.
Excellent service and great food! Love the ambiance very hip and fun joint.
The atmosphere was welcoming and the food was good. Service was friendly.
Great menu , excellent service, a fun evening or afternoon. I highly recommend Blu!
Close by,excellent service, good food, good drink selection, very clean and always maintained.
Each time we dine at Blu Ale House in Riverdale, the food is delicious.
We decided to eat at Blu Ale House in Riverdale, NJ on Wednesday evening. We actually eat there quite frequently. Each time the food is delicious. I had the short ribs, my husband had a cobb salad and my mom had the pork chop. We thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Blu Ale House never disappoints.
Service was quite good. The food was good except for the Pistachio Cheesecake—-I’d never heard of it and was disappointed. We liked the outdoor seating—-it was covered very and we never felt forgotten. The highway noise was loud enough that we had to speak a little louder than usual—-not sure what could be done but it was annoying.
The Hummus appetizer was terrific and the burger was delicious!
Good is good, service was great. Nice casual place to go. Great seeing the entire bar area full and people enjoying themselves after a very long year
We had a great meal in a vibrant atmosphere ..... the drinks were unique and very tasty .... very pleased to have BLU back on the radar after COVID and looking forward to making a return very soon.
Great food and ambiance. Highly recommend. Definitely go.
BEST, repeat BEST mussels in this area. And the tuna tartare is outstanding! Cocktails are well cradted.
The meal was really good and the overall service was as well
Service was very good, food came out in a timely manner and food was good
Great service.. Rich was our waiter. He was very attentive. Tasty food. A bit too noisy inside.
The waiter Zachary was great. He remembered my wife's nut allergy and checked to confirm after the order went to the kitchen. Great staff. Food was really good. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends
Terrible service. Waiting over 20 minutes for our drink order. Watched others walk out as I was going to do too. Then food was cold, and we wanted dessert but couldn't bc took too long
Friendly staff, great food, nice setting! Definitely go back again!
An overall great experience.
Had a very god time All of our party of 7 enjoyed their food
Service was excellent! Paul was a very nice personably waiter - food was excellent!!
Always a good experience 😀
I have been here many times but not since the start of the pandemic. This was such a disappointing experience. The food was awful (I have had the chicken pot pie before and it was always delicious) and service was so slow. We waited a long time to get our check. We won’t be going back anytime soon.
This was my second visit in 6 months meeting family half way at this restaurant. The first time we went I couldn’t wait to go back. Had the lobster roll which was amazing. Well the second time ordering it was not good. They added a spice and tasted like it was left over from 3 days ago. The side of broccoli rabe was cold and did not even taste like broccoli rabe. My cousin ordered the fish tacos and she too said they were not the same as last time. Very disappointed. Would never go back.
The food was great, as was the service! Our waiter Zach was awesome. Thank you for a great experience! Highly recommended.
