As usual the sea food offerings were delicious and plentiful. Endless shrimp, oysters and crab legs help justify the hefty $60 per price. The service once seated is over the top. Our waiter continually checking on us, refreshing our drinks and clearing or finished plates. My only concern was the noise level and the large number of patrons circling the various food stations….at times a real frenzy! For that special occasion, The Blue Ridge on Fridays is the place to be.

We originally had a reservation for 6 but were quickly accommodated when the party became 8 for roof top seating. The drinks were outstanding and food was exceptional. We had the best server named keila… I might be spelling that incorrectly. She was fabulous and took excellent care of us from start to finish ! Highly recommend!
