Very good food and reasonable. Excellent service. Those who wants to sit in the bar has a huge area with large screen TV and those wants privacy are also taken care.

Service was very slow. Not all her fault as I think they were short handed and manager was apologetic

We reserved a High Top and the Hostess direct us to a diferente seat.
My salad wich I added Salmon did not meet my expectations.
My husband ordered Lamb and He wasn’t very impressed with the taste.

Best Brunch find in a long time!! Will definitely be back. The prime rib was incredible!!! the only thing that needed help was the dessert area. Very sparse. Maybe something hot like an apple cobbler or a bread pudding. Although he desserts were an afterthought, ALL of the food entries were incredible!!

Used OpenTable to book a hightop table for two. I received the email confirmation from OpenTable. When we arrived there were no tables available and I was told that they were not honoring the reservation that I was showing them on my phone. Later, I received an email from OpenTable stating that I was a "No Show" while I was still standing at the bar! I showed the "No Show" email to the manager as well. Point is, if you can't honor a reservation do not send an email with a confirmation and I will make other arrangements. To date, neither Blue Alehouse or OpenTable have contacted me to offer an consolation for ruining my date.

VERY LOUD with the country music upstairs and the band setting up downstairs...But That will not deter us from the best piece of prime rib anywhere in Jersey, although we may switch to Tuesday to avoid the noise.. feels like home with a great wait staff and amazing food. I heard the have have a new menu coming out soon. Can’t wait to try new things!!

We come to NJ three times a year and always stop by blu for dinner. Usually great service and food. Had two issues this time, first was I ordered a chicken quesadilla with no peppers and a LOT of peppers were in the quesadilla when it arrived. The server asked if I wanted a new one, but I didn't want to wait while my husband ate his food so I decided to pick the peppers out. Second, I ordered a piece of pie to go and when I got back to my hotel realized utensils were not included, so I had to pick up with my hands to eat. These are reasons why no 5 stars were given this trip.

There is really nothing great to say about this place. If feels like a modern cafeteria. Very noisy. Acceptable food. You don’t get a sense at any of the wait staff has been well trained. Definitely would not go back.

Food was okay...both my friend and I felt it was a bit salty. The beer I had was great, our hostess was good and I enjoyed selecting off of a gluten free menu. The music/noise level made it hard to have a conversation without yelling...ambience is more suitable for “hanging out” versus conversation.
Probably will not return.

The place is very cool, great sports bar scene. Our main problem was that we waited nearly 20 minutes just for the waiter to come over. Once he did everything was fine. The food was good, nothing special. The drink prices were good and the best scene was very cool. Huge wall of TVs, would definitely recommend to anyone going to watch a game!

Our second time dining there and we do like it. Everything was great but have to bring up 2 downfalls.. it's very noisy, especially in the bar/foyer table area. High ceilings make for great look but it is very loud. Even the regular dining area is a bit loud, but better than the bar area and foyer tables; the appetizer portions are small for the price. Example: 3 mac and cheese bites for $9... really wasn't enough to split between 2 or 3 people! I had a 1/2 of one just so the others could enjoy some. I have to say they were very tasty & I woulda loved to have more but was not going to order a 2nd order for the price. Great beer selection if you are into that...and the Pomberry Martini...yum..tastes like candy and not super sweet! TVs everywhere for the sports fan! If they make the appetizers portions a little bigger, it would be fabulous! We will be returning soon!!! Give it a whirl!!

I had the Code Blu and it was sooooo good. I would definitely be back there. I love the way the place looked and the fact that they have two floors is awesome. The two floors reminded me of being in New York at one of their restaurants.

Came here on a Thursday night, not expecting anything besides a place that was just opened past 10pm.. Only the bar area was opened, and it had a good crowd. Didn’t know they also have happy hour.. great selection of drafts and the limited menu was still pretty good... not really into country music, but it was upbeat, making it a fun atmosphere to mingle with our friends. Definitely would recommend to come here if you just want a place to chill and enjoy some great beer.

I have been here quite a few times and have been lucky enough to always have the best servers! They are always quick and so personable! I also love the look and vibe of Blu's. I brought my parents here recently while they were visiting from out of town and they loved it! The manager came over to check on us and he had a great conversation with my dad, who is a former chef. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice relaxed night out!

I received my glass of wine and after drinking I realized my lip was cut from the glass which was cracked instead of getting me a new glass of wine, the waitress thought it was a better idea to just bring me another glass to pour the wine into NOT knowing if the current glass of wine had glass in it or not.

Not once did she apologize or say sorry I had to ask for a manager which was totally unnecessary if she just would have handled it better.

Not happy with her service.

I had a pasta with broccoli rabe and sausage which was very good. My husband had a chicken dish which was ok. My friend's husband had a sausage and potato dish which seemed scant and wasn't great. His wife had ribs which she liked. The drink was good, a lemony vodka something, can't remember.
