    As always we were greeted warmly and escorted to the patio. My favorite cocktail is off the menu, 😒 Within 10 minutes we were escorted to our booth and chose the crab cake soup and squash blossom appetizers, both were fabulous (soup could be a little hotter) wish they had a plate warming station. After such great appetizers the main course-flounder was a disappointment (wanted the short ribs but they were also off the menu) it wasn’t obvious from the description that it was breaded and fried (did I miss that?) it was dry and flavorless and soon went cold because the plate was not warm. It came with 2 teaspoons of coleslaw and what looked like hush puppies; I prefer a full serving of vegetables and a full starch such as mash potatoes. We ordered 2 deserts- a type of chocolate cake which was very pretty but tasted like a box cake mix. The donut desert was a big hit with the table and was ample enough to share No going home hungry. I am passionate about supporting local businesses and want this upscale restaurant to remain just that. Please don’t loose your best clients to mediocrity, bring back the favorites, try not to be too trendy by sacrificing quality. Try visiting The Boathouse in Petersburg to sample the sublime and revitalize the menu. Thanks for reading. Lanie 336-337-5885

    Wonderful experience as always when we dine at the Blue Jay! We are especially impressed with how carefully and thoughtfully the accommodate food allergies /sensitivities. The chef even creates a personalized menu each time we visit for our daughter with allergies! The service, food and cocktails are amazing and unique! So happy to have the Blue Jay near us.

    We’ve been to Blue Jay Bistro about 5-6 times. It never disappoints. Fantastic appetizers and small plates. The entrees are always something new and different that allow you to try different flavor profiles with established proteins. We drive 90 minutes from Raleigh to enjoy this hidden gem. The warm cookie plate for desert is worth the stop alone.

    Pluses: 2 little crabcakes in crab bisque was a nice touch. Water bottle on table and neat glasses was a nice touch. Dessert was superb and a good value Courteous staff and beautiful ambiance. Minuses: $26 for 2 scallops the size of sewing thimbles- what's with the tiny portions. My friend had thought they came with 2 very large scallops and other condiments and veggies on the side. Suggestions: For almost $100 a person with wine and dessert would it be too much to offer a roll while waiting, or something else on the house. People love free stuff. Four or 5 times a waiter or busser tried to take my plate while my friend was still eating. There is a drop in the dimly lit hallway coming from the ladies room. You might put some indication Overall very fine experience!

    We go out to dinner on special occasions hoping for an overall great experience, not just good food. Blue Jay Bistro exceeded our expectations. The food, drinks, and service were excellent. The staff was very friendly, fun and attentive. The ambiance is amazing, you could easily be in an upscale urban restaurant in any foodie destination city, You have to remind yourself you are in a small North Carolina town, population less than 700. I am always encouraged by a menu that focuses on a small number of dishes well prepared. The Blue Jay succeeds wonderfully in this category. Overall, this restaurant deserves to be on your must try list, even if you have to travel a little to get there.

    Looking back this was not a good customer service experience. Arrived 10 minutes and was ushered to the bar even when our table was ready. Had to pay bar bill instead of adding it to table bill. My wife's shrimp was excellent but my Flounder was very thin and over cooked. The desert was recommended by staff and didn't come close to expectation. When I mentioned my disappointment - sorry was all I got from server - Manager was in the room and never came to our table which made me feel unappreciated as a new customer. First impressions were not good.

    We brought our friends from Apex, NC to this restaurant for the first time. We had a wonderful meal. Loved my Berry Basil Bubbly cocktail (3 times :-). We started with appetizers - Duckfat pototoes, strawberry & burrato, scallops, and the oysters Clara. All were but but the oysters clara was quite unique. I had the flounder with delicious brussel sprout slaw. My friend enjoyed her shrimp and quinoa. Our husbands polished off their pork chops and hanger steak and still had room for dessert - the hazelnut chocolate thing and the fresh cookie plate. Both were yummy. It was a wonderful evening with friends - we can't wait to go back and try out the outdoor seating.
