Great food and great drinks!
Decent beer list, moderately priced food and drinks, and the food was great. Sports were on the TVs and there was plenty of room at our table despite a large party. Would happily come back.
I had to leave a 2 star because the rating system says it's a 2 if it "could've been better", and it was a shame how this whole thing went down.
Let me start by saying I absolutely LOVE the style and ambiance of this place. It's beautiful inside. The menu was not very big, and only had one steak option - hanger steak. I almost got it, but it came with fries and I didn't feel like that. So I got the short rib street tacos. They were very small, but they were good. They could have been improved with some kind of sauce, but they were good. The corn was a fun touch, but was soggy, messy and not that great. We also shared the shrimp & grits. We are big fans of the dish in general. Here, it was good, could have used some salt and there was none on the table, but we ate it all and did enjoy it.
So what went wrong you ask- ok - our server, a blond with short shorts on was fairly clueless about the beer selection and after my husband decided on one, she came back with my drink about 10 minutes later and said they needed to change the keg for that one. We placed our order at that time. Around 10 minutes later she comes by and says "would you like to order something?" (jaws drop) "uhm yes we ordered earlier, do you remember what it was?" She says, "ooooh, I must have put it in." She had clearly forgotten about his drink, so I said to him, "would you like something else to drink?" she said they hadn't changed the keg yet. He ordered another beer he didn't really want and got it after our food came, which was about 5 minutes after she walked away that last time. Thank god she put the order in, because she sure as hell didn't write anything down. She's not good enough at serving to be running around without writing orders. She ruined what could have been a great experience. However, the menu wasn't what we like, so we probably won't be coming back.
Excellent food and service!
Great drinks!! Good Food!!! Have to get help in the kitchen…. Waited 45 min for apps and another 45 for dinner…..takes away from a great place!
Wow! This food is delicious and so unique to Manchester! Our waitress Courtney was the best. We had all types of food and appetizers. Chicken and waffles, fish and chips, tacos- all delicious and fresh. Can’t wait to return.
The cocktails were great. We had stuffed pepperochini for a starter. It was delicious. We had gumbo and the salmon for dinner and they were both spot on. We will definitely be returning. Great food, drinks and great service!
Wouldn’t have thought I’d find New Orleans fare on Elm in Manchester, but here it is. Enjoyed a tasty sampling of dishes, will be back!
Food was ok, one dinner was extremely small (fish tacos) while the fish & chips had a large serving of fish which was delicious with thin breading. The ambiance wasn’t what I expected, much more casual and very loud. My glass of wine was barely drinkable because the glass had such a soap smell and taste. Our cosmos and beer were fine though, no soap smell at all.
We had a great time! Food was very good. Service was very helpful with our food decisions. Would recommend to everyone!
The service and ambience was great all the servers were warm and friendly
Food was amazing can’t wait to go back
Great atmosphere, great service but food was mediocre.
My steak was cook perfectly but they served a perfect steak with freezer isle fries. This was a date night and the music was loud.
My wife and I ate here for dinner. The menu is limited; however, everything we had was fresh and prepared properly. My wife is a vegetarian and they had multiple options for her. I had the wings with the dry rub as a starter and they were very good. My wife had the cauliflower wings in Buffalo sauce and said they were excellent. For dinner I had the pulled pork sandwich. It had a lot of bbq sauce on it, which I like, but others my prefer it dry. The brioche role it was served on was nicely toasted and delicious. My wife had the Greek pizza and enjoyed it.
The atmosphere is odd. It’s like they are trying to be too many things. There are TV’s everywhere, like a sports bar, but then there is an elegant fish tank. Then there is a huge bar with a great craft beer selection next to an upscale dining area. Should I have a sport coat on or a tee shirt?
The service was good and we will be back.
Fun, interesting drinks, and DELICIOUS food. We ate outside which was great, but Elm Street has to do something about the obnoxious motorcycles and cars that intentionally revved their engines while we were eating.
We had a table reserved but ended up dining at
the bar. This was our second time at this location (we used to visit you in Amherst) the apps were on point tuna tartare, Buffalo cauliflower and stuffed pepperoncinni’s. Main meals were just as good from burgess to
Fish chips and chicken sandwiches. Our server Michael was informative, funny, efficient!!! I think we would go back just for him. All over great experience and can’t wait to go back
A fun place to go. The food is good and the service was great. Will definitely go back again.
Was pleasantly surprised after walking in and realizing it was a sports bar.We summer at the beach so swordfish is at a premium there, but the swordfish I had at this restaurant was outstanding, the cut was thick and blackened the way I like it. Wife had seafood gumbo which was excellent as well. Highly recommend Bluaqua
I had looked at so many restaurants and started confusing them. When I booked BluAqua I didn't realize it was more casual. That's my fault. However being there the staff was very pleasant and engaging. The food was great. All of us enjoyed every bite. Thank you for having us
