Service was terrible. Although the waitress (Michelle) was nice and friendly. The food took WAY TOO LONG to arrive, and only after we inquired about it twice. Once it arrived one of our four orders was incorrect. It was also quite difficult to just get our water glasses re-filled.
The food was also very disappointing. To their credit, once we voiced our concern to the manager, she did remove one of the four dinners from our final bill, and did offer complimentary desserts.

Great place for any occasion. On this night there was live music by the Light Up the Queen musicians. Great community involvement.

Food and service was very good! Place was very clean and had a nice open feeling in the restaurant. The only down side was the weather was cold and both the restaurant and the bar area were very drafty from the door being open and closed.

This is definitely not the same restraunt that blue fish once was. While the food is good I can’t help but think back to how good it used to be. Sure the new variety is great but I feel like the dishes may be hit or miss. The filet was great according to my fellow diner but my pecan crusted chicken sandwich the bread was over toasted and the Brie often over powered the dish. For a neighborhood bar and grill downtown it’s a good place but it’s far from the perfect date night it used to be.

A perfect place for dinner with friends. It is also our date night spot. Happy to be able to walk there, too. Food was delicious.

We came for a Valentine’s Day dinner Res and ended up sitting at the bar watching the Olympics, enjoying drinks and eating apps instead. The best dirty martini I’ve enjoyed in awhile and delish fresh mozz! Will return with friends!

My boyfriend & I went here for Valentine’s Day last year and ADORED it so much that we went back this year! The second experience wasn’t as delicious. Our drinks were pretty terrible. Mine tasted like straight cough syrup (I ordered some pear drink). We barely drank half before ordering something simple that we knew we would like. The waitress didn’t even ask what we thought of them. I must have ordered from the specials menu last year, because the entrees were not as appealing this year. I got the crab cakes. They were good enough. Just like any basic crab cake. I will say though, my boyfriends filet was cooked beautifully! Overall an okay experience food and drink wise. We are going to try it again when it is nicer out and decide if we will keep the Valentine’s Day tradition going then.
