This was our first time trying this place out and we loved every part of it! From the apps to the tequila flight - absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the chicken chimichurri salad with a house Rita.
Delicious, apps, handhelds, and tequila cocktails. Great location.
Had requested outdoor seating well in advance. Upon arrival it was 1.5 hour wait.
They put us in a back room where no other people were sitting w no outside open air view unlike many other seating areas
Service was acceptable but got better when others arrived close to our area
Tacos were ok. Some good some marginal
Tables were spread well and things were clean. Staff took great care to keep people safe. Food was great as always.
We made a reservation and then was told it would be an hour longer because outdoor seating is first come first serve... no where was this posted on open table or made clear even the first time I checked in when we got to the restaurant! They originally said they were setting up our table and 15 minutes later we were told it would be another hour. After 3 empty tables sat cleared and no one was standing waiting for a table we had to ask to take one. The service was just as awful. It took two hours, she forgot one of our appetizers so it came 30 minutes later, we only had one drink ordered the entire two hours. Very disappointed
Queso Fundido is phenomenal! Service was quick and place was clean.
Great food and drinks! It’s my favorite place! I recommend the street corn and tuna poke nachos! You honestly can go wrong with anything there! Everything is good! Staff is friendly and attentive!
This was our first dine-in experience since COVID and the folks at Blue Bat didn't disappoint. Everyone was very nice and accommodating and Scott, our principal server, was terrific. Super cheerful and funny and really made us feel at ease despite the masks and such. Food and margaritas were mighty tasty - I'd ordered from BB several times during isolation and appreciate the consistency in deliciousness provided both in-restaurant and for carryout. All in all we had a terrific time celebrating our first venture into a not-yet-normal world...
Food and service great. Restaurant has a great system to follow overly strict guidelines of Milwaukee county. We are happy to support our local restaurants!
Love the palomas! Street corn and all tacos were fantastic!
Food was sort of cold which put a damper on our brunch! Service was a bit awkward but not maliciously so. Ordered the Korean bowl and the shakshukah. Not that we’d regret it but I don’t thi k we’d be back for those dishes.
We were there for National Margarita Day with specials.?The Roasted Brussels Sprouts appetizer is fantastic. I had the Baja Taco and Avocado Toast. Plenty of food-all tasty .
Service was good waiter looks like Ricky Gervais
Loved it! Will definitely dine here again! Handmade Cajun bowl was 🔥🔥🔥😋
Great food and service. We really enjoyed everything we had, especially the happy hour deal — we tried the chips with salsa and guacamole. Our server even stopped by a few minutes before happy hour ended just to see if we wanted anything else. That was much appreciated!
When we first walked into the restaurant, the person at the hostess desk was on their phone. Didn’t even acknowledge we were there. We got the attention of someone at the bar and were seated, but then the person who ignored us became our waitress. It was awkward, we felt very unwelcome. It kinda set the tone for the entire meal.
Excellent meal and service!!
Fantastic experience with a very attentive waiter/bartender and phenomenal food. The poke nachos and beef bowl was very tasty!
Excellent food and excellent service as always. Made it for 4 dollar margaritas at happy hour that were spectacular and made me wish I could stay longer.
Innovative menu offerings and wonderful friendly staff!
Good food, different and interesting. We all enjoyed it
Came in with a reservation, unfortunately the server wasn't ready to take another table so a bit of a wait but the wait for food was even longer (roughly an hour for one taco plate and a mushroom bowl). On the bright side, the Palomas were delicious.
Service was great. Food tasty and drinks delicious. Great 8 person table all by ourselves to celebrate special birthdays .
Very good food! The fried Brussels sprouts were recommended and they were so good! Our tacos were excellent as well. We will be back!
I love blue bat! One of my favorite places to dine in Milwaukee. They never disappoint.
Food good. Service good.
Interesting menu and atmosphere. Great cocktail menu.
Birthday dinner for a large party. All the food was excellent and arrived in a timely manner. Waitress was knowledgable and all around great. Can’t wait to go back!
Our food was outstanding and the server super friendly. Would highly recommend!
Dash did an amazing job. Scratch food truck dishes and large tequila selection
Thanks so much for coming in, Stephen! I'll make sure Dash sees this. He really is one of our best. Can't wait to see you again!
The food was good, but took a long time to finally get to the table. Conversation was also difficult based on the noise levels.
Hello! Thanks so much for coming in. Always great to hear when people enjoy their food with us. I'm so sorry that your order took longer than expected on Friday night. I'll be the first to admit that we could have done better with our timing that night. We've worked really hard since we opened to improve in this area; Friday night we fell short. I'd love to have you back to show that we can do better. Shoot me an email so I can arrange it? mattb @ hospitalitydemocracy Thanks!
Great atmosphere, modern and clean with interesting features. Really good service. Food was only okay. We started with 2 beverages... a Blue Bat Margarita and something else I can’t remember. The Marg was good, albeit small compared to what I’m used to in a Mexican restaurant. The other drink was not to my liking but I’m not a huge Tequila fan. We had the Sambusas appetizer which was quite bland. We also had a freebie of the Nachos appetizer (apparently they made one by mistake). Those were quite tasty but the chips were really greasy. We then had 2 each of a variety of the hand-held tacos. Pretty good flavor but the flour tortillas were dry. Overall, I’d probably return and maybe try one of the Bowls instead next time. I’d also like to try their outdoor seating during a warm evening. The service was really terrific!
First time here, loved the food. Had the Pina Mezcal cocktail, queso fundido, salmon blt bao bun, FGT and barbacoa tacos plus shared a brownie with horchata ice cream. All delicious! Beautiful space and friendly knowledgeable staff.
Absolutely delicious! Fusion flavors are great. Really recommend the apps!
We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation on NYE but were able to be seated right away. Our waiter, Max, provided excellent service, and when I asked about a flight of anejos, he asked the bartender for suggestion. Mike (said bartender) came over and asked my preferences to build an appropriate flight and then came back with the flight to explain the flavor profiles and then again to follow up on how they were. Excellent service! The food was also delicious. We had the mole albóndigas as well as a couple hand helds (barbacoa and the banh mi of the day).
Thank you for joining us to celebrate 2020! I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed your dining (and drinking!) experience with us. I hope we have the opportunity to serve you again soon. Cheers!
Hostess pretty much spoiled the experience. We had a res and needed to wait. That’s not an issue if ur pleasant. She was not. Our waiter was good.
We Ubered in from Lake Country for $200.
Amazing food and even better service! I’ve recommended this place to a ton of people!! Thank you :)
