We were celebrating my niece’s high school graduation from McGill Toolen and my husband’s military retirement after 30 years active duty service .
This has been one of my favorite spots to eat for many years. I love being out on the deck and eating when there is live music. The food is always good.
Good venue and service. Food was great.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and food also enjoyed the music very much
We went to Bluegill on our last night staying in Alabama. We wanted to be somewhere with a nice view and outside space before we returned to cold grey England! We had such a lovely time. A great waitress, good food and the view we were hoping for. There was an excellent live act on too which completed the ambiance. We loved our time in Alabama and Bluegill was a perfect end to our time and representation of the awesome Southern hospitality the state is renowned for. Thanks!
HAD LUNCH FOR ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONAL`S DAY WITH MY 3 ASSISSANTS/GREAT LUNCH
This is my new place for grilled oysters. A little bit of a dive but I like that.
First / blind date, appetizers, (Sunset) entrees, and desserts. Tuesday night quiet comfortable booth. Excellent service, delicious food, most enjoyable evening. Most memorable first date. Great foundation for a possible lasting relationship for both of us.
We took family from out of state here and had a wonderful time! When I made the reservation, I requested a table outside by the water and was thrilled that Bluegill was able to honor my request. As always, the food and service were both perfect, and it was a fun, memorable way for our family from California to kick off their vacation!
Given the location and setting, this casual restaurant has a unique ambiance that makes you feel “down home”. It was comfortable and the live music was a great touch.
Food was average (although I loved the horseradish that went with my sandwich!).
This is a nice place for “letting go” and sitting back to enjoy what’s around you.
Great food. Delicious oysters, loved
The shrimp creole sauce. Music was goood
Marinated Crab claws were not good. Meat would not come off of the claw.
This is a great place to meet old and new friends. Live entertainment to enjoy dinner and drinks.
Great response time time in being seated. Good food and service. Harry was on point.
The food was delicious!! Davenport was our server, and she did an awesome job!!
Two birthdays celebrated. Rustic with excellent quiet atmosphere on New Year Eve lunch. My fish basket with grilled Mahi was great! No room for dessert. First class service!
A wonderful find. Food was great as was the service. We intend to go again on our next trip to AL.
Great appetizers and great service
Cousin visting from Atlanta and I wanted her to visit Bluegill.
Great atmosphere and service! Love the live music!
Fun birthday party good service. Good food. Great atmosphere.
Excellent service and great experience with a group from work
First time to visit Bluegill and we thoroughly enjoyed our late lunch. We drove from Birmingham for the day to visit our daughter who is a student at USA. This was on our list of must try restaurants and so far is a favorite. Can't wait to come back.
The Blue Gill had an excellent selection of fish and sides. My colleges and I all had different dishes and we all thought it was very good, portion sizes were very good and the food tasted very good. The service from walking into the restaurant to walking out was superior. They try very hard.
Great food with great service. Was blown away with the service and quality of food. Will be stopping when we return to the area!!
Excellent service, delicious well-presented food, and a great view!
First time visit and maybe the best flame grilled oysters I have ever had. Blue gill platter was on point and I got it grilled. The back deck has fans to push the air, which made it pleasant. Looking forward to next visit.
The fried seafood was excellent. Portions were medium to large. Service was good and the beer was cold. Nothing fancy, just good food.
Realized Mother's Day morning that we hadn't made any reservations anywhere and every place would be packed after church so I checked Open Table and the only place in our time frame was Bluegill so that's why we went. We had the flaming oysters appetizer and they were fantastic! They were the best part of the meal. The shrimp on top of my fish dish were over cooked and still had the tails on. My husband ordered the fried pork chops with red eye gravy...he said the chops were good but no way that was red eye gravy. Neither one of us cares for the rice. My daughter in law ordered the special, crab cakes topped with Fried Green Tomatoes and a sauce...she loved it. My son got the grilled seafood platter and said it was just ok. We had to wait a bit for the food but understandable since it was the busiest day to eat out all year. I would only go back for the flaming oysters.
Fun local place on the water.
The best food were the flamed oysters. The fried seafood, oysters, shrimp and fish were also good with nice portions. The flamed oysters were the best.
It was a great time, my boyfriend really enjoyed his self.
Delicious food, great service, and wonderful atmosphere outside with live music. Never disappointed when I dine at Bluegill!
Great flaming oysters any time & good Bloody Mary for 3.00.
Loved it!!! Food was amazing! Waiter was super friendly! Music was great! Had a wonderful time!
Perfect waterfront dining spot. Casual and really fun. No wonder the flaming oysters are famous ....they were to die for!
Overall it was a pretty good experience. Waitress seemed inexperienced and my order came out wrong. However, they fixed it happily and the correct order was out within 5 minutes. Mac and cheese was awesome! Portions were huge and the fried pickles were some of the best I've ever had.
The atmosphere was exciting and relaxed. I had the special for the night and was a little disappointed in the food. Staff was very friendly.
Our group's server was very kind and friendly. I will come back in the near future for dinner again.
The oysters were incredible along with the
Service We will be back.
