The food was good, however I feel like everything was a little overpriced. I think if everything on the menu was $3-$4 less expensive, I would call this place great. I had the lobster nachos, and they were very good, but quite overpriced for the quantity. They do have a $1 oyster happy hour on Fridays which is pretty fantastic.... More

Our waitress was fabulous, very attentive, friendly and personable. The food does not make me want to return anytime soon. Two guys in our party ordered steak, one medium rare, one medium well - both came out the same. Aside from how it was cooked, my biggest surprise was the lack of vegetables. They each received a plate containing a... More

What a great restaurant! The food is great and the prices are affordable. Great place for lunch or dinner. Their Famous Lobster Nachos is to die for. Very cozy place. Great service. I have been there for both lunch and dinner and they don't dissapoint. Try it!!!

We went to the Blue Door for the first time for my spouses birthday. The restaurant is gorgeous, cozy and comfortable. The food was amazing! There was 4 of us there and we had no complaints. Food was hot when it was served, drinks were cold and service was excellent! We will be back :)

This was one of my favourite restaurant meals that I can recall. One of those meals where every bite was bliss. My husband and I shared two starters: the fish cake had fantastic fresh flavour and texture. And the sauce drizzled on the plate made it even tastier. The other starter was the roasted beet and arugula salad with almond... More

What a gem. The service was excellent (Craig), the atmosphere is nice and relaxed, friendly staff. I stated with the fish cake (no filler there), pure fish, and amazing, then Craig suggested that the special, duck breast with a fig jam and sweet potato sort of hash would be a good choice, and it was. Hummmm! Then we shared a... More

On the spur of a Thursday evening decided to the Blue Door, a restaurant that I had eaten at many times before in earlier trips to Fredericton, but not within the last year or two. Since the last time the ownership had changed. The menu also had changed considerably though the layout of tables was the same as I remembered.... More

I was the first time I went to The Blue Door since the new owners. I have to congratulate them on the service! It was fabulous! The chef also sent a sample of his "night" special - creole scallops, while we were waiting for our order. The special was excellent, but what we had ordered was o.k. We were a... More

The restaurant has its ups and downs. It has a great atmosphere and every time I have been there the service was great. The food is hit and miss. I had the steak and lobster nachos. Both were excellent. However in my group of eight, half thought the food was overpriced and disappointing. The other half was very satisfied. The... More
