The Crisfield Seafood Stew was excellent- the Bluesyome salad was huge and yummy! Finally Key Lime Pie was just as great as the entire meal!

I took my husband to Bluestone for his birthday! I made a notation in the reservation of this but it was not mentioned by the waiter! Also we had to flag him down after waiting 15 minutes to place our food order! The food was delicious. No problem there. When the check came we had to send it back twice due to mistakes/charges that were incorrect. I ordered soup to go that he forgot to place the order for and had to be reminded of! Not a good experience at all! Was also not asked if I wanted a second drink!! I will not return!

I don't like to make negative comments during this time as I want all restaurants to succeed. Bluestone is our go to and always has very good food. This time there were some shortcomings but they did do their best to make up for that by taking one item off of the bill. I do have to say that the seafood club, which is quite expensive, seems to be smaller than it has been previously. The drinks were great and the taste of the food is always good.

Enjoyed the food and it wasn’t busy for lunch. I enjoyed the crab soup. The service was great, thanks to our server Alexis because she made our lunch. She was very friendly and helpful.

We were celebrating my husbands birthday and decided to dress up with the kids and go out. We were definitely over dressed but it was intentional (COVID hasn’t given many reasons to throw on nice clothes). The restaurant was family friendly. There was more than enough space to practice social distance. The decor has a weird vibe that’s not quite new and not quite old. The booths however were extremely dated and for some reason they kept playing old Aretha Franklin songs. Our biggest gripe was the waiter. He was not that attentive with us but seemed to do well with helping some of the other guests. Our children even picked up on it and when another server would bring our food he’d offer to get our waiter to help refill drinks. The food was great... even down to the dessert. Altogether it was a good experience outside of the weird service. I would definitely go back with hopes that the service is better.

Four-Plus stars means I will be back again (and again).

The food is very good, no matter what you choose. My personal favorite appetizer is the fried green tomatoes, this coming from a diner that NEVER liked them before. Menu is not overwhelming, simple and balanced. The Chef gives each dish identifiable flavors and plate appeal and not just a jumble of sauce-protein-breading on a plate.

What really makes this place noteworthy is the team that works here. A great dish can be marred in the execution, but here is where the the people in the front of the house are as good as the the food. The wait staff are personable and attentive. Their support staff keep on top of the details (water, clearing, etc.). Management created an atmosphere that makes all feel comfortable. Ever been to a place where "social distancing" makes you feel lost? Not the case here. Wanting a little intimacy for that "date night"? You can find it here.

So, if I'm so high on the place, why not a full 5 stars?

It's 'cause my Mom isn't the cook...(and no, I didn't like her fried tomatoes)

Consider coming by and I think you will enjoy

Waiter had no personality and never introduced himself. Food was good but not worth the value. Drinks were expensive and had little alcohol in them.

We usually love BlueStone but the food was just okay this time. Small servings, especially for the price. Not much for side items either.

We were waited on like we were the only couple in the place, but as the tables filled, we had to track them down to get a bill, and the track them down to pay the bill.
I asked 2x’s for a box and finally got a girl cleaning tables to get one for us.
So it started great and then down hill after that for service.
But food was good, and prices were decent.

Have not been to Bluestone in awhile. Really wanted calamari from there and it did not disappoint, it was excellent. My husband ordered BBQ short ribs with mash potatoes and asparagus. Huge portion and they were very good, brought half of dinner home for another night. I ordered scallops with cauliflower puree. A very small amount of cauliflower and the scallops were covered with a brown sauce that tasted like something you would put on turkey. Disappointed in the sauce but the scallops were good.

Tasty food served by courteous and attentive wait staff. The noise level was higher than usual because there was a birthday party in the next room. We were nevertheless able to talk in normal tones! We were in a very comfortable booth. Will certainly continue to go there for lunch and for dinner!

The cocktail drinks we ordered weren’t up to par. We ordered a carry out dessert and was very disappointed with it. The brownie was hard as a rock. The manager greeted someone in the dining area except us. Overall, that night wasn’t a good experience at all and we have been there before on numerous occasions. Please do better.

Thanks

We returned to Bluestone for dinner with another couple and had a great experience. Our waitress was attentive, but not overly so, and the meal was delicious. I was pleased that my Firecracker Salmon was served hot, as were the other entrees.

We will return.

Nice lunch menu with plenty of choices. Shrimp salad wrap was just ordinary; my sister's crabcake was better. Apple cider sangria was the best part of the lunch!

The experience and cuisine were top notch. The ambiance was cozy while great dinner music played. My partner is a picky eater and rarely eats all of his meal. He devoured the cauliflower appetizer and ate his entire meal which was the salmon entree. Glad l picked this restaurant.

We were sat in a side room that was very bright... Food & service were great as usual but we joked that it was so bright it was like eating at McDonalds. I understand the social distance aspects etc but you really should try to do something about dimming the lights in there for dinner.
Thank you, Joey
