    Food wasn’t good . They advertise a red snapper and I got a frozen fish that had no bones .. snapper has bones ( even when filleted) .. not my cup of tea .. I won’t be going back

    The air conditioning wasn’t working and it was a sweat box inside. If my friends hasn’t already appetizers and drinks we would have gone some where else. I would not recommend going here until it’s fixed.

    Met a friend for a drink and dinner. Prompt service, good beer selection. Food was delivered quickly and was well made. They had line dancing on the mezzanine floor that looked interesting.

    Hands down the worst dining experience I’ve ever in my life! I have trusted OpenTable for years and Blu Alehouse needs to removed from your site and app. Half through our meal a waitress drops an entire tray of glasses about 6ft from my table. No problem accidents happen, no harm no foul. We all wonder what happened. At the end of our meal, right as we put our cards down to pay the bill. Crash! Someone spills an espresso martini on my four year old daughter’s coat, tablet, head, chest and lap! Someone (who I later find out is the manager) says,” I’m so sorry, I’ll offer you a free dessert.” Long story short, he only offered us 20% off after spilling an espresso martini on my four year old daughter! I walked out and paid nothing! Disgraceful! Never go there if you expect great service.

    Location is good to meet friends from north jersey. The food is more than adequate. The place got so loud after 8 pm that is was hard to hear the person next to you. We almost thought there was a live band that's how loud it was. I am vegan and was happy to find the vegetable burger as an option.

    This restaurant had a great staff and the food was good. The place however had no ambiance . The TVs surround the room. They try to separate people and there is a large standing fireplace, yet it has a cavernous echoey feel which did not make the evening as nice as it could have been. Maybe the lights are too bright? Something makes it feel like a school lunchroom.

    The food was very good. Unfortunately they were lacking staff and our server was also the food runner and bus boy as well. This caused delays in ordering and attentive service. Nice place with good food and drink but we wouldn’t rush back until the service issues are corrected.

    I’ve always passed by this restaurant and I finally had to chance to experience it and all its glory! The actual location was bigger than I thought and the ambiance was too cute. John was our waiter and he took care of us! We were a bit complicated but he exceeded our expectations! The food was absolutely delicious and the drinks were pretty good too. It was apparently country night so that was fun to experience! I’ll definitely be returning with all my friends and family!
