Sunday football, kind of cold because the doors were kept open for the servers to get outside which is understandable, I just would have layered more had i known.
BEST mussels ANYWHERE!
Good food and indoor dining. Felt safe.
Nice to have a place to go and eat “safely” although Rt 23 and parking lot traffic detracts from the ambiance. Food was ok, lobster roll could have used more lobster and less roll. Service was fantastic.
Our visit today was our first, and now I can say it was the first of many to come. We were really impressed by the variety of items on the menu. Everything from simple seafood like mussels, more complex dishes like broccoli rabe and sausage, to regional specialties such as the shrimp po' boy.
All the food was delicious, the muscles we're absolutely plump and fresh, and a service was outstanding. I recommend it!
Every thing was good
The Lobster Risotto is excellent. A good amount of Lobster. Try the Carrot Cake cupcake. It was awesome. Wait staff was very good. Attentive and pleasant.
Food was terrible. Ribeye was tough and over cooked. Ahi Tuna was terrible. Will not be returning. Limited menu which serves garbage. We spent all day there eating apps and drinks. Spent nearly $300. Never again!
We love Blu Ale. The food is consistently delicious and the service is excellent!
Sat inside. Everything was clean and we were distanced. They did not use disposable menus which I was not a fan of. I avoided touching the menu.
2 of the 3 portions were very small for wat we were charged. I had a steak sandwich on a roll with fries as advertised. There were 3 small slices on a onion roll. The only thing filling about the steak sandwich was the roll
Our waitress was quite attentive to our needs, all four of our drinks came at the same time as did our main course. We were very pleased with our time there.
I had a nice time. I am not sure if I would go again. I felt the tables were too close and I was not totally comfortable.
Very eclectic menu. 5 of us went for my adult daughters birthday. Everyone raved about their meals and cocktails. Our server Paul was very enthusiastic. I had mentioned the occasion when we arrived and, without requesting, Paul enlisted 3 other servers to sing happy birthday. It was an excellent evening.
Our waiter Paul was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The staff made a huge effort to keep people from mingling in the parking lot while waiting for their tables by asking them to wait in their cars until called. . They were also reminding people to wear their masks while going to and from their tables. A huge improvement over a few weeks ago. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience.
Service was slow. 3 groups were seated after us and go there dinner first. Most tables were plenty far apart, some I felt were a little close. Food was good.
Great place, never disappointed. Zach, our waiter was outstanding!
This has become our go to place during the pandemic. The food is always good and the tables are spaced out well.
Always have a good experience at this Blu Alehouse. I would definitely recommend to others.
Even in a massive thunderstorm it was a perfect night.
Fantastic food!!! Code blu burger is the way to go. I would highly recommend to anyone!
Great Food, Drinks and Service. Felt safe with proper distancing, one family did come in without thinking they needed to wear a mask. We will definitely
Good time, good food, nice outdoor dining experience with my daughter and friends.
Service was great and the food was excellent as usual!
I should have asked for my Hanger steak rare instead of medium. It was a little too cooked but it was still very good. No complaints, excellent service and no wait.
The highway was very noisy but overall the service/ food was good.
Made a reservation at 6:15pm, got there a little early, we were seated by our reservation time but it seemed they had made zero preparations for our arrival despite the reservation.
After being seated, we had a good dinner service from Brianna, our server. Food and drinks came out quicker than expected, especially for the amount of tables there.
A little pricey on the shrimp appetizer, 5 medium shrimp for $13 is a bit of a rip off. All of our entrees came out close together, "The Don" pasta was good but needed salt. All the other dishes had just a little too much salt. When the bill came out, we were surprised to find a much smaller bill than anticipated.
It was nicely put together with needing outdoor dining. Food was really good. My friends chicken wasn’t cooked when it first came out but it was quickly fixed. Service wasn’t very good it was slow food and drinks were forgotten and messed up. Never got checked on and felt rushed to leave. Margarita flight was amazing! Definitely recommend it.
Burger came out raw.
Enjoyable experience. COVID 19 practices followed by staff, but as always you have one customer who thinks they do not need to wear a mask when walking to their table!
Mostly good experience...food, service, atmosphere. I was disappointed however that many people were not wearing masks while waiting for a table or walking to/from their tables. In this day and age mandatory mask wearing MUST be enforced.
I booked my reservation for my sister’s birthday. Upon arrival, the hostess didn’t care to greet us warmly or check the occasion of the reservation. We waited a while for a waitress/waiter to come to our table. After a few minutes, we were greeted and asked us if we wanted drinks. After observing 2 families be served food, we started to wonder where our food was. We ended up getting our food later than expected. My fish taco was extremely tough. My sister ordered a chicken sandwich which felt like a hockey puck. My mother ordered a salmon dish which was supposed to come with vegetables, sauce for the fish...etc. Instead, she was fed rice and a piece of dry fish. Unacceptable. On top of that, we didn’t even receive a birthday treat/song/nothing.
As someone who is a fan of the Woodbridge location, this was disappointing. Due to that location being closed temporarily, we decided to try this location.
I definitely don’t recommend coming here. Whoever is cooking the food is a disgrace.
Outdoor dining during COVID restrictions was well done. Food and service is consistently delicious
Our dinner was excellent....our waitress was too! We really enjoyed our evening.
Excellent overall experience. Felt very safe as well!
Great food and atmosphere.would recommend to anyone
Positive- food was very fairly priced I felt
Outstanding food, always an excellent experience.
My first (outdoor) eating experience in 6 months. It was wonderful!!! Seated quickly, great wait staff and 4 delicious meals!!!
