    My wife and I have been to blueprint several times and consider it "our place". We have never been disappointed, even though we try to make it a point to get something different each time we come in. We always leave more than satisfied and look forward to our next visit.

    Ate outdoors. It was not busy when we arrived for our 7 pm reservation. And we were able to have the table we wanted. Wait staff was great and my date thoroughly enjoyed her chicken entree. I however, had the worst meal I ever had there. I got the redfish. It was very fishy tasting. The spinach was a bit burnt and tough. Mashed potatoes OK. Shrimp bisque drizzled on top was ok, too but would have been nice to have a small cup instead. And I was extremely displeased that overall the dish was VERY salty.

    We love Blueprint! Service is always the best and so is the food. We have tried nearly all on the menu and loved everything. I ate exclusively appetizers on our last trip and the Alabama blue crab I could eat every day. Delicious! And by the way…. Drink specialties are outstanding. Don’t miss one of those

    We were celebrating a special occasion, and had a wonderful evening. We were fortunate that the weather was nice: the patio is somewhat spartan but it was quiet and relaxed (in the past the inside can be very noisy if its busy). Service was flawless. My only criticism is that, of the high-end restaurants in the area, the food is maybe half a step below the best - but still pretty good. Bottom line is that we like this place, always have a good time, and will go back again.

    Good experience food is good, Menu is set and they do not deviate from It, so don’t go thinking you can change sides or order extra sides. Corn muffins were burnt not good Manager came and apologize but ummm that doesn’t change that it was burnt it should have not left the kitchen Catfish delish

    Everything I had here was great - drinks, appetizers, entree, and dessert. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable of the menu. I would definitely recommend the fried oysters, corn bread muffins, scallops, and bread pudding.
