Sushi
Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value. We offer Happy Hour every day of the week at Blue Sushi Sake Grill!

    On valentines day we were seated in the back of the restaurant which was very bright and overall not very similar to the usual blue sushi experience. When I ordered a roll it was said that it was going to come out separately, but it was 30 mins before the rest of our food came out, and before the appetizer as well.
    Blue Sushi Sake Grill - HaymarketResponded on February 29, 2024
    Blane, I have gotten your feedback in front of our managers there. I am sorry about the hiccup in regards to the separate roll's timing.

    We were in the back party room and the soda machine was making that noise that something needed refilled and we had to listen to that noise our whole dining experience when several staff were back there and it was never addressed. Also the vegan frier wasn’t working.

    Food was delicious, menu had a lot of variety! It's a bit dark inside, so it was a little hard to read the menus, but it was great ambiance once I wasn't trying to read anymore.

    Blue Sushi Sake Grill is the best sushi restaurant in Lincoln, NE. It has the best high end selection of sushi in the city and an atmosphere to match that quality. The drinks are outstanding, the service is impeccable and the food quality is outstanding. Blue is without question one of the top 10 restaurants in the city of Lincoln.

    I made a reservation through the app and then was told they were closing 15 minutes after and basically shamed into not ordering or eating there. I love blue and always have a great experience but I don’t understand why they would allow reservations when they actually don’t want you to come. If this was just staff trying to leave early, that’s pretty frustrating and unprofessional.

    I’ve been to this location 7 times, and last night I wasn’t completely pleased. Long wait times on food- which my vegetarian friend and I didn’t care about. But she received a roll, which we thought was vegan Salmon. It was regular. We didn’t find that out until after we ate the roll. I also ordered a dessert, which never came. I will 1000% be coming back because I love Blue, and the happy hour. Just a couple bumps this visit.

    Amazing as always. Biggest compliment every single time is not bringing food out at the same time. Half our table got their meals and the rest sat for another 20. This happens every single time we have more than 5 people. It is so annoying. Fix that issue and we would have zero complaints.
