Very nice, varied menu - nothing crazy or over the top - just well prepared dishes with a Southern flair, beautifully presented. Good wine list.

The best. We wanted to eat outside. Brandon called at 3: o’clock and suggested that we eat inside because it was going to be a cold night. We wanted to be outside because of COVID. He gave us a table on the veranda with a heat lamp. It was delightful. Those who changed from outside to inside made a big mistake. Go for outside next time.

We loved the outdoor setting with its balcony and fire pits. Had unfortunately come on rainy evening the previous times.
Ian was a great server. We always enjoy the baked pimiento cheese appetizer with the toasted pumpernickel from Hinkel’s
The grilled trout entree with its seasonal butternut squash was delicious.
My husband enjoyed the chicken and grits entree garnished with capers

This restaurant feels incredibly safe. There are UV filters all over the dining room area, a new HVAC system that only uses fresh air (not recycled) and beautiful and heated outdoor dining! Food and people were incredible as always!

The menu offered options depending on what you want. They were all paired well with vegtables or sauces. In our party of 4 we got two fish dishes, a venison, and a chicken, so everyone was happy. The food was just the right amount to enjoy, get full, but not over-eat. Some very unique cocktail choices and an extensive wine list. The ambiance was great for celebrating my daughter's 26 birthday, so it was a home run.

Loved the location and the Service was outstanding. My Grouper was not cooked enough so I sent it back and they were very prompt in returning the dish back and once returned it was excellent! I would recommend Blueprint on 3rd.

Very comfortable setting outside given it was early November. Food is always great. And they change the menu up now and then. Great waiter, too. Ambience is nice outside. The space heaters were lit. But I could have done without the fire pits. The smoky air was unpleasant and made my clothes smell bad. And there were even some small sparks that could have been dangerous.

Thanks for lighting the fire pit, the warmth and smoke was a great compliment to our outdoor seating. We loved our dishes...grilled kale and brussels salad, fresh fish with an ultra light and flavorful sauce and the hearty venison with farro. Blueprint is our go to for a delicious, consistent and creative dinner.

Blueprint was excellent. The food was very good. As was the service. They appear to be very Covid compliant. We felt very comfortable. And safe. Let me just say: the Blueberry White Chocolate Bread Pudding was the best thing I’ve eaten since the lockdown began!
